Best Bets Dec. 29/30: What to watch THURSDAY, DEC. 29
NCAA Division I Finals
ESPN Classic, 4 and 6 a.m. Early-morning replays of this year's college title games, with North Carolina and Charlotte battling in the opener and Stanford taking on Duke in the second game.
FRIDAY, DEC. 30
MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER
Houston Dynamo at Galaxy
ESPN Classic, 9 a.m. MLS Cup 2011 might have been David Beckham's final competitive match with the Galaxy -- we'll know more about that soon. He was superb against the Dynamo, and so were Robbie Keane and goalscorer Landon Donovan.
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE
Newcastle United at Liverpool
Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Deportes, 11:30 a.m.
One point separates sixth-place Liverpool (8-3-7) from seventh-place Newcastle (8-4-6), and the Reds will be without Luis Suarez, who is suspended after a nasty gesture to Fulham fans earlier this month -- and faces eight more games off in a racism probe. Replay: FSC, 5 p.m.
Perth Glory at Newcastle Jets, Fox Soccer Channel, 9 p.m.
