NHL Online Betting Preview: Regular Season Now In Full Force
After waiting more than three months for the NHL and NHLPA to finally come to terms on a Collective Bargaining Agreement, hockey fans and poolies are excited for their first full week of regular season action. After a full slate of games Saturday and Sunday, the schedule continues with at least four games every day of the week, including what promises to be a physical affair between two conference favorites when the Boston Bruins and New York Rangers meet on Wednesday. The next night the Rangers are in Philadelphia to take on the Flyers in a rematch of the teams that played in last year’s Winter Classic showdown, but how much they have left in the tank will be a key storyline to follow.
Australian Open Online Sportsbook Preview: Djokovic, Federer Fight On
The Australian Open will continue this week with many of the favorites still alive, including Novak Djokovic, and Roger Federer. Djokovic has won 17-straight Australian Open matches dating back to last season, and with no Rafael Nadal he is the obvious favorite to win the tournament again if he can get past both Roger Federer and Andy Murray. Meanwhile on the women side, both Serena Williams and Venus Williams have made their exit, as Maria Sharapova ousted Venus following Serena’s exit due to injury. That leaves the door wide open for someone to step up, and Sharapova is among those eyeing the hardware.
NBA Sports Betting Preview: Lakers Continue To Look For Answers
The struggling Los Angeles Lakers enter this week still looking for answers, and the schedule isn’t about to get any easier. The Lakers have lost seven of their last 10, and now have to travel to Chicago Monday before a trip to Memphis on Wednesday, before returning home to host the Utah Jazz on Friday. Meanwhile in the Eastern Conference, the Boston Celtics will continue their fight to lock down a playoff spot with a couple of tough games, with back-to-back road games at New York and Atlanta to end the week. The veteran Celtics’ roster has been criticized all season for not being able to handle tight schedules, and this two-game trip will be the perfect chance to see whether or not they can handle the rigors of playing two tough road games on consecutive nights.
College Basketball Sportsbook Preview: Wolverines Stuck In Log Jam At Top
With the cluster at the top of the national rankings early on, it looks as though this college basketball season will be among the most exciting and unpredictable in quite some time. The fifth-ranked Michigan Wolverines bounced back from their first loss of the season with a dominant win at No. 9 Minnesota last Thursday, and will look to continue to prove they are the most talented team in the country when they play Purdue on Thursday. Unfortunately for the Wolverines there are still four teams ahead of them in the rankings despite the top eight teams each having just one loss, including top-ranked Louisville, which travels to Villanova on Tuesday. Another former No. 1 and current No. 2 Indiana takes on Penn State Wednesday, while No. 3 Duke travels to Miami.
