The Spartans will be traveling to Nebraska on Thursday evening to take on the Cornhuskers in one of those battles that could have major implications on the Big Ten title race. The Cornhuskers are coming off a huge win at Indiana while Michigan State has won four straight without Josh Langford and one Kyle Ahrens-less.

It’s been a quiet season for freshman point guard Foster Loyer who was expected to spend time as Cassius Winston’s backup, but he’s surrendered some time at the position to Matt McQuaid.

LMU defeated Georgetown early in the year, and that is really the big cherry on top of the schedule that overall wasn’t that good. The Lions played two non-D1 teams, the most allowed by the new WCC scheduling. The storybook year fell apart with a nasty, nasty win to UC Riverside. WCC play hasn’t been too kind to LMU either. The Lions have lost to both Pepperdine and Saint Mary’s, and it looks like Gonzaga is going to put LMU on its first losing streak of the season. The West Coast Conference season is all of one week old – just a single game for Gonzaga and Portland – and just two unbeatens remain.

Loyola Marymount vs Gonzaga are at the top with zero losses. They collide Saturday night in San Francisco, so there will be one undefeated – provided the Zags don’t stumble at home vs. Pacific on Thursday – come Sunday morning. The Zags rolled in their lone game, a 91-48 blowout over Santa Clara. The Dons are 2-0, breaking a late tie to hold off Saint Mary’s and riding Frankie Ferrari’s go-ahead 3-pointer with 14.2 seconds left to edge Pepperdine.

Pepperdine, eighth in the preseason poll, thumped Loyola Marymount, which came in with a 12-2 record, and nearly beat USF, considered by many to be the second-best team in the WCC. Santa Clara, picked ninth in the preseason poll, handled San Diego, thought to be a top-five team. BYU, third in the preseason poll, barely dug out a road win over Pacific before getting crushed at Saint Mary’s.

Game Time: 02:30  PM

Goals from Erick Cabaco and Borja Mayoral gave the Valencia side a flying start in this two-legged affair, though a late penalty from Philippe Coutinho allowed Barca to keep in touch.

However, the Catalans will have to produce a much-improved display at home if they are to move into the quarter-finals of a competition they have won a record 30 times in the past.

Barcelona have a string of familiar injury concerns heading into this encounter, with Samuel Umtiti leading the list. Thomas Vermaelen, Rafinha and Sergi Samper are also absent.

Despite the precarious position of the tie, rotation will take place, yet it remains to be seen if Ernesto Valverde keeps faith with either centre-back Miranda or Chumi, both of whom were replaced in the first leg.

January signing Jeison Murillo is liable to start, while there will be a temptation to select at least one of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in attack.

Possible Barcelona starting XI: Cillessen; Semedo, Murillo, Lenglet, Alba; Rakitic, Alena, Coutinho; Malcom, Suarez, Dembele.

Barcelona turned in a sub-par performance last week as they slipped to a 2-1 first-leg loss against Levante in Valencia but will be hopeful of turning that deficit around.

Ernesto Valverde rotated his side heavily for that first encounter and after some failed experiments in that match – most notably in defence – he will be confident that he and his players have learned from the experience.

Espanyol vs Villarreal predictions for Thursday’s Copa del Rey round-of-16 second-leg match in Barcelona. The first game was drawn 2-2. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

The visitors were in complete control of the game heading into the last five minutes last week leading 2-0, yet conceded twice late on to give Villarreal hope.

After a run of below-par matches, Magico seems to have turned a new leaf in the new year. They have remained unbeaten in their two matches in 2019. They almost pulled off a victory in their first leg tie against the Yellow Submarines. But late-match complacency undid all the hard work they put in earlier.

Despite showing some spirit in the final minutes of the first leg, Villarreal have endured an extremely disappointing time of late.

The side from the province of Castellon have not won away in any competition since September 26, a run of ten winless games on the road.

Espanyol meanwhile have been generally strong at home, winning eight of their last 11 matches in front of their own fans, and while they may not be in the best form, they will certainly have more confidence about them than a struggling Villarreal side.

The famed Anoeta welcomes one of the most exciting teams in Europe right now, for the second leg of the Round of 16, Copa del Rey. Real Betis were held to a goalless draw in the first leg of this Copa del Rey tie by a Real Sociedad side much stronger on their travels, and all is far from lost for the Seville club.

The Verdiblancos can make the journey north still with real hope of reaching the quarter-finals because, at least before Monday’s match against Espanyol (result not known at the time of writing) Sociedad had accumulated the fewest points and goals at home in the Spanish top flight this season. There has been a huge difference in Sociedad’s results on their own pitch and on the road this term, even enough to suggest their best chance of progressing from this tie may already have gone.

But, of course, it may not be that simple and this is unlikely to be a cakewalk for Betis. It is unrealistic to expect them to emerge as comfortable winners because, as the stats above outline, Sociedad have been keeping things pretty tight in their recent matches. Ultimately, we think this could be a similarly cagey contest to last week’s, but in terms of nailing our colours to the mast of who will advance to the last eight, our money is on Betis.

Chili Bowl Nationals 2019
Date: Thursday 17 January, 2019

This week, some of the best drivers dirt racing has to offer have flocked to Tulsa, Oklahoma, for the 33rd running of the annual indoor midget car event held on a 1/5-mile dirt oval at the River Spirit Expo Center. As of Jan. 14, more than 350 drivers and teams were featured on the entry list as five qualifying nights lie ahead leading up to Saturday night’s A-Main event. The champion gets the coveted Golden Driller, a replica of the 76-foot statue located outside the venue.

NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Christopher Bell goes into this year’s Chili Bowl searching for his third consecutive victory. In 2017, the Norman, Okla., native became only the second Oklahoman to win the event, beating out World of Outlaws driver Daryn Pittman for his first triumph. In 2018, Bell took advantage of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Kyle Larson’s misfortunate after engine issues parked Larson in the waning laps. Bell out-dueled two-time Chili Bowl champion and former Gander Outdoors Truck Series driver Rico Abreu for the victory.

Bell, 24, will need to get past the usual suspects in order to become just the third driver to win three or more Chili Bowls behind four-time winner Kevin Swindell (2010-13) and five-time winner Sammy Swindell (1989, ’92, ’96, ’98, 2009). Bell feels his stiffest competition is none other than Larson as both will compete under the Keith Kunz Motorsports umbrella.

Monday kicked off a week of action-packed racing, including practice rounds that began at 9 a.m. local time, followed by the first night of preliminary racing. The entry list is divided into sections for each qualifying night, which includes a series of heat races and qualifiers, followed by a 25-lap feature event. The top-two finishers in each qualifying night feature event lock themselves into the 24-car A-Feature event on Saturday night.

Drivers who do not finish in the top-two positions in their respective preliminary features will have one more shot to make the field with a series of main events on Saturday, with the top-seven finishers from each of the two B-Mains transferring to make up the full field.

Iowa State. The Wildcats are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The road team is 0-4-1 ATS in the last five meetings. Texas Tech. The Sooners are 7-18-1 ATS in the last 26 meetings. The underdog is 6-1-1 ATS in the last eight meetings. Prediction. Iowa State is excellent defensively, but are offensively challenged.

College basketball point spread: The Tar Heels opened as 17-point favorites; the total is at 155, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. Line updates and matchup report.

Saturday’s game against the Cardinals was the worst performance of the year for the Tar Heels, seeing that it was at home in a game they were favored in. The Tar Heels came out flat and fell behind from the start, never fully recovering and never leading in the game once.

Iowa State had lost three straight and four of five before coming up with the win over Texas Tech State. Now, the Wildcats have to go on the road and deal with the Sooners. Iowa State erased a 6-3 halftime deficit by outscoring Texas Tech State 28-6 in the second half en route to the win.

He said his goal in his younger days after a bad game was to make as many players “throw up” as much as possible. But these days, Williams said, he takes a more measured approach.

“We gotta bounce back against Iowa State,” Williams said Monday. “We know we’re going to face a zone defense, so we’ve got to shoot the ball better than we have been.”

The Tar Heels have not had many great shooting performances this season. They have made half of their shots only once in their last 11 games. So they’ll likely have to rely on their defense to win tough games.

The Tar Heels shot 13.6 percent from behind the 3-point line, and 34.5 percent from the floor overall against Louisville. It was a game that they had needed to win ugly. But the Tar Heels turned it over 14 times, and their defense did not provide much help.
