Today's Preview
Two very interesting soccer matchups start the day. First, at 2:45 p.m. ET, we have a "total goals" matchups with Catania at Juventus in the Coppa Italia tournament. Keep in mind, the total goals are only counted in the 90 minutes plus injury time. Our other soccer matchup features three superstars going head-to-head in a "more goals" matchup. Cristiano Ronaldo, 2008 FIFA player of the year, takes on fellow teammates Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez. Some experts predict Ronaldo will score two goals against Wigan but, as we know with soccer, anything can happen.

In the evening hours, it looks like college basketball is taking over ESPN with four matchups on the board being televised. First, at 7 p.m. ET, Jon Scheyer takes on Gani Lawal. Scheyer has scored 20 plus points four times this season. Lawal has scored a season high of 34 points. So, this could be a high scoring matchup.

As for "straight up" college basketball matchups, No. 8 Syracuse is at No. 13 Georgetown (-6), Nebraska (-1.5) is at Iowa State and No. 21 Baylor is on the road at Texas A&M (-1).

For NBA matchups we have the Blazers (-1) at 76ers and a "total points" prop between the Kings and Warriors with the over/under at 224.5 (yes, you read that right).


NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at San Antonio Spurs
The Lakers and Spurs, what else needs to be said? Two of the decades best NBA teams take the court in San Antonio in what should be a game that comes down to the wire. The Spurs are currently favored by one, but they don't have the league's MVP, Kobe Bryant, who could carry his team to victory with a 50 or 60 or 80-point game?
