NHL Sports Betting Preview: Penguins, Blackhawks Look To Make Quick Work Of Conference Quarterfinals
The Chicago Blackhawks barely edged out the Pittsburgh Penguins for the best record in the NHL during the regular season. That doesn’t mean either team will have a tough time in their respective conference quarterfinals series. The Blackhawks will open their best-of-seven series the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday, one night before the Penguins open their series against the New York Islanders with game one on Wednesday. Chicago and Pittsburgh are the favorites to meet in this year’s Stanley Cup finals, and according to the odds it would be somewhat of a surprise if either team lost even one game in the opening round of the postseason.

The Miami Heat became just the sixth team in NBA history to sweep a four-game playoff series by winning all four games by double digits when they took down the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round.

What is a surprise to some basketball fans is that the sweep of the Bucks is the first playoff series sweep that Miami has since the big three united in South Beach. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh now have some time to get healthy, before they join Lebron in trying for another four-straight wins against whatever opponent they face in the second round.

NFL Online Sports Betting Preview: Tebow In Search Of Job After Release From Jets
From the Mile High to the Big Apple, is a trip north of the border next in line for Tim Tebow? The controversial status of Tebow reached an all-time high when he was traded to the New York Jets prior to last season, but he never got the chance to start at quarterback and struggled in a gimmick offense in which he never really had an opportunity to grow. For all of the criticism he gets, Tebow is still a raw talent that could find a role with another NFL team, although there have been rampant rumors about him potentially heading to the CFL for next season. There is still a lot of time for Tebow to decide his future, and while he does it will remain a hot topic for all of the wrong reasons.
