Today's Preview
The UEFA Champions League, arguably the best soccer league in the world, makes its triumphant return to our board this afternoon. On ESPN360, AS Roma tries to take down Arsenal on the road with the odds slightly favoring the home squad. Over on ESPN2, two of the world's best teams square off in a "total goals" matchup with the over/under at 2.5 goals. It is rumored that Man U will rest a bunch of their starters, so be on the look out for a Ronaldo-less match.

In NHL action the Thrashers (-105) host the Avalanche and the Canadiens host the Canucks.

For NBA matchups we have Memphis' two young guns -- O.J. Mayo and Rudy Gay -- taking on King James in a "more points" matchup. Mayo and Gay average a combined 40 points-per-game and although LeBron had 26 points in their last head-to-head meeting, he can easily go over 40 points at home. We also have the Blazers at the Rockets at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Two bubble teams square off on ESPN at 7 p.m. ET. Ohio State is favored to take care of Penn State rather easily, so we put up a "total points" matchup with the over/under at 126.5 points.

College basketball also finishes off the night with Boston College (-3) hosting Florida State, Nebraska (-2.5) hosting Texas A&M and San Diego State (-2) playing host to BYU.


NCAA Basketball: Florida Gators at No. 18 LSU Tigers
This one looks like LSU will win without a problem but Florida is 21-6 on the season and will be a solid tournament team. However, that may not matter once they step into Baton Rouge against the surprise team of the year. The Tigers are only favored by three here, so watch out for a road upset!
