NHL Online Sports Betting Preview: Blackhawks Look To Extend NHL Record Streak; Canadiens On Their Way
Just when it seemed the Chicago Blackhawks’ NHL record streak of games with at least a point was about to end, the team provided another dramatic comeback in a 2-1 shootout win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday and extended their point streak to 22 games. Chicago has earned a point in an NHL-record 22-straight games to open the season, and have at least one point in 28-straight games dating back to last year. The Blackhawks will look to keep that roll going when they host the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday, before welcoming the Colorado Avalanche to town on Wednesday. Meanwhile, there is another streak brewing in the Eastern Conference that has gotten far less publicity, as the Montreal Canadiens have now gone 11-straight games with at least a point. The Canadiens are in first place in the East because of their run, and will look to keep it going when they begin a four-game road trip at Long Island on Tuesday
NBA Online Sportsbook Preview: Heat Can Set Franchise Record; Lakers’ Chase Continues
The Miami Heat went for a franchise record 15-straight wins when they visited the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night, and will look to keep rolling when they host the Orlando Magic on Wednesday. Lebron James went off for 29 points and 11 rebounds despite injuring his knee in a 99-93 win over the New York Knicks on Sunday, and while the injury was deemed minor by Lebron, it will be something to keep an eye on. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers took down the Atlanta Hawks with a 99-98 win on Sunday to reach .500, but will have a tough time avoiding falling back under that median line when they visit the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday. The Lakers are still 2.5 games back of the Houston Rockets for the eighth and final playoff spot in the West, as the Rockets have also won consecutive games and visit the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday.
College Basketball Sportsbook Preview: Gonzaga On Top For The First Time After Completing Perfect Season
The Gonzaga Bulldogs are the top-ranked team in the country for the first time in the history of their program, and after sweeping their West Coast conference schedule, they will stand alone on top this week with no games left to play until the Madness begins. The situation isn’t nearly as clear across the nation though, as the No. 2 Indiana Hoosiers look to hold down that spot when they host the No. 14 Ohio State Buckeyes on Tuesday, while the No. 3 Duke Blue Devils look to hold their own against Virginia Tech that same night, despite a good chance they won’t catch No. 6 Miami for top spot in the ACC despite beating them on their own home floor this past weekend.
