Welcome to USA best Bet for another exciting Thursday of sports betting. While it may not be as jam-packed as expected following MLB wild-card series sweeps, we still have a thrilling lineup of NFL Thursday Night Football, college football matchups, and golf events for today. Let’s dive right into helping you make your next winning bet.
Yesterday’s Sports Action
Last night saw a clean sweep in the MLB playoffs as the Rangers, Twins, Diamondbacks, and Phillies all advanced to the Division Series with impressive 2-0 victories. Meanwhile, the Rays, Blue Jays, Brewers, and Marlins played their final games of the season.
In terms of World Series betting, the Phillies and Twins lead the way with +800 odds on FanDuel Sportsbook. However, they still trail the four teams that received a first-round bye, with the Braves as the favorites at +260.
Our handicappers had another strong night, going 3-1 with their ML/spread picks for the second consecutive night. We also cashed in on our Best Bet with the Twins ML as they shut out the Blue Jays. MLB props were another win, and our Blue Jays vs. Twins Same Game parlay hit at impressive 575 odds. Additionally, our Wednesday mega parlay cashed at reduced +369 odds with one leg pushing.
On the soccer front, it was a successful night with a 7-4 record on midweek MLS picks, including three plus-money plays.
Today in Sport Schedule
We’ve got NFL picks lined up for tonight’s Thursday Night Football (TNF) showdown between the Bears and Commanders at 8:15 pm ET, exclusively on Amazon Prime.
The college football action continues with the Western Kentucky vs. Louisiana Tech game at 8:00 pm ET on ESPNU. You can find our NCAAF predictions for all the Week 6 matchups.
After the Ryder Cup, golf is back on track this week, and there’s still time to check out our golf predictions for the Sanderson Farms Championship.
Best Sports Bet of the Day
NCAAF: Louisiana Tech Bulldogs +6.5 over Western Kentucky Hilltoppers (-115) Kickoff: 8:00 pm ET, ESPNU
Western Kentucky relies heavily on an air-raid offense, boasting the highest pass rate in the nation. However, their efficiency through the air raises concerns. They rank outside the top 65 in pass-play PPA, success rate, and explosiveness. This could be problematic against the formidable Louisiana Tech defense.
The Bulldogs’ defense ranks among the top 3 in opposing pass-play PPA and success rate. Western Kentucky struggled, averaging just 6.9 yards per pass against Troy and 5.2 against Ohio State. In contrast, Louisiana Tech has yet to concede more than an average of 8 yards per pass at home. For more insights, read our full Louisiana Tech vs. Western Kentucky predictions.
