Every day the Denver Gazette sports staff will publish its best bets:

1. Bulls (-1.5, -110) at Pacers: Chicago's on a back-to-back, but Indiana's on an 0-5 ATS slide.

2. Penn State at Rutgers (-5.5, -110): Lock it in, and check out the Under (145.5) as well.

3. Ohio State (+3.5, -110) at Illinois: Under the radar, Buckeyes field a top-five 'O' in the country.
