With all due respect to the Grizzlies and Mavericks, the Spurs and Thunder are finally going to get some competition on the NBA playoffs. Sport betting insiders are hyping this series to be the best basketball we will get to see in the second round as both teams have been very evenly matched throughout the regular season. This could be a tight series that has the potential of going to a full seven games, and it really could go either way, but San Antonio does have a slight edge over Oklahoma City.
The first week of the Champions League Semi finals went by, and left fans betting on soccer a bit underwhelmed on how the action turned out. One goalless draw and a tight 1-0, left both matchups wide open for any of the teams in competition. Right after the series passed all four clubs must return to their domestic leagues and get ready for what will be a very (in)tense week of soccer.
When we were giving you our Betting on Basketball preview of the Eastern Conference Playoffs we said that the Charlotte Hornets looked like underdogs, had the odds of an underdog, and well, played like underdogs. Yet, we acknowledged that the Hornets had a very decent chance of upsetting the Miami Heat, especially if they manage to steal one game from Miami. Last Night, they did, and not only that, game 6 moves to Charlotte with the Hornets on the brink of eliminating the favorite Heat.
Houston Rockets guard Jason The Jet Terry has guaranteed his team will win Game 6 against the Golden State Warriors, putting the series 4-2 – apparently oblivious that the series is to the best-of-seven games. The sports betting favorites Warriors crushed the ever-loving tar out of the Rockets 114-81 to send them packing on Wednesday night. Coach Steve Kerr’s strategy of having league MVP Stephen Curry feign a knee injury in order to give Houston a semblance of a fighting chance clearly did not work and Golden State will most likely face the Portland Trailblazers in the second round.
The Nashville Predators sealed the final ticket for the Second Round of the NHL Playoffs and sports betting now directs its attention to what’s next. Granted with the League’s bizarre schedule last night the West was defining the final ticket, while the East had the first game of the second round. Crazy start, but now we can get all in the same page and see who will make it to the Conference Finals. Here are our online betting predictions of who will move on, with the current series prices.
Are you betting on hockey and do not know what a Grand Salami is? There is no need to be ashamed of that. According to the last poll, 95% of new bettors admit to not knowing that either (disclaimer: poll and results may be imaginary). But with the NHL playoffs in full swing, it might literally pay off to become acquainted with this particular term. Basically, a Grand Salami is betting on the over/under total of goals in every hockey game played in a single day. That is that there is to it. Such sites as SBG Global sportsbook will include a Grand Salami option of total amount of away goals and home goals in a night’s action.Continue Reading
Are the Blues the new black? St. Louis took out the not-for-long-still-reigning Stanley Cup Champions the Chicago Blackhawks in seven games. Chicago blues may be one of the most important influences on modern music, but the ’Hawks had nothing on the St. Louis Blues. That doesn’t mean its all downhill from here, though. Some mofos are always trying to ice skate uphill, and the Blues won’t have any choice but to when they face the number 1 seed in the Western Conference, the Dallas Stars, in the second round of the NHL playoffs.
If betting on hockey were like in cartoons, the Penguins would obviously be favorites in the NHL playoffs second round series pitting the Pittsburgh team against the Washington Capitals. Of course, if that were the case, they would be actual penguins. But since they are not, the Caps are online betting favorites (odds -135) to win game one, which they host tonight. Though to be fair, Pittsburgh did own the Blueshirts in their first round series – making fast decisions, fast passes, and keeping their (happy) feet moving all the time, as real penguins are wont to do.
If the online betting trend continues, the Boston Celtics will tied their series with Atlanta tonight on Game 6, as they make their last stand at the TD Garden. The story in this series has been all about winning at home and losing on the road, and since the Hawks have home field advantage, at this point it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that Atlanta will move on to face the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second round. Atlanta is the odds favorite at -128 versus Boston (+108) tonight.
We had already taken a brief look into the early Kentucky Derby favorites, after time progressed, and we approach race time, we take another updated look into the contenders. A couple of things have happened since we last touched on how ‘the most exciting two minutes in sports’ are shaping up for the 2016 edition. Are new horses to be considered to take the race or are the early favorites still atop of the odds?
