Today's Preview
The UEFA Cup continues on ESPN360, starting at 2:00 p.m. ET, with CSKA Moscow at Aston Villa. Villa, a usual fan-favorite is the slight favorite at home. Next, at 2:45 p.m. ET, Hamburg SV travels to NEC Nijmegen with the home team receiving the unusual draw.

Six matchups fill up our early evening block, starting with the Nuggets (-1) at 76ers, and Miami at Florida State (-2.5) at 7:00 p.m. ET. Then, at 7:30 p.m. ET, we have a "total points" matchup between "bubble" team Providence and Louisville. At 8:00 p.m. ET, Virginia Tech takes on Virginia (pick'em) and a "largest margin of victory matchup" with two top-25 teams playing at home. Will Kansas beat Iowa State by more, or will North Carolina win by more over NC State. Kansas is favored by 18, while UNC is favored by 21.

In the second evening block, Oklahoma State (-3) tries to avoid an upset at Texas Tech, and at 10:05 p.m. ET, we have a "total goals" prop in the NHL when the Kings host the Ducks.


NBA: Orlando Magic at New Orleans Hornets
The Hornets play their first game without traded center Tyson Chandler against the Magic at 8:00 p.m. ET on ESPN. The Hornets are still favored by 1 in the game but one might think this trade will have a negative effect on the Hornets team and cost them this very important game.
