As the week comes towards the midway point, with it comes a number of fun and exciting additions to your sports betting tickets at one of the top online sportsbooks reviewed here. For Wednesday, we return once again to basketball, both in professional and collegiate form, as our main source for the best picks available for betting on sport this week. As the NBA is especially active tonight with 13 games lined up for us hoops fans, there’s no doubt where the betting will start today, and to get the action kicked off right I’m heading to Bookmaker Sportsbook to scope out the best picks on basketball first and foremost. For the first piece of action worth biting into, check out the betting lines for what should be a great defensive battle between the Chicago Bulls and the Indiana Pacers. Riding a 4-game winning streak including 2 straight at home, the Bulls combined better offense and shutdown defense should be enough to cover the points spread for the first wager of the day. Catching a few other wagers worth making on NBA play, watch for the San Antonio Spurs to continue their impressive home form with a squeaky win against the visiting Atlanta Hawks, and for the first time in forever I’m actually taking the Los Angeles Clippers straight up over the Lakers as the two square off at Staples Center.
Moving on with further picks for basketball today, watch out for a couple of great match-ups as 9 games feature Top 25 teams for betting on sports at Bookmaker Sportsbook. The best showdown of the evening takes place in the Big Ten, as the #11 Michigan State Spartans host the pesky Minnesota Golden Gophers, with the Spartans losers of 2 out of 3 games after winning 15 straight. However, after dismantling Purdue at home on Saturday 83-58 (whom Minnesota lost to by 13, at home), Michigan State looks primed to parlay their recent home form and start another hot streak once again, and Minnesota could have a tough time even covering the spread in tonight’s match. Shifting gears to the ACC, #6 Duke hits the road trying to bounce back from their first home loss in 45 games, but faces a tough competitor in Maryland who’ve won 8 straight games on home court. Over in the Big 12, #2 Missouri puts its talented lineup led by Kim English, Ricardo Ratliffe and Marcus Denmon up against the Oklahoma State Cowboys, who could be in for a blowout on their own court as their anemic offense will be hindered all night by the shutdown D of the Tigers. Missouri is definitely a team to watch down the home stretch of the season, and with a favorable schedule to boot, look for the Tigers to be a good pick on the money lines in the weeks to come leading up to the NCAA tournament,
With room for the lone NHL Hockey match-up set up before the All-Star break, we’ve got to get behind a wager on the Detroit Red Wings vs. Montreal Canadiens game, with the Red Wings hitting the road looking to retain their position as points leader in the NHL, on the back of a 7-game winning streak. While Detroit has set a franchise record with 16 home wins in a row, their road form leaves much to be desired at even .500 (13-13), but against a Montreal team that is 8-9-7 on home ice, look for the Red Wings to maintain their shutdown play of late courtesy of goalie Jimmy Howard’s efforts, and score a victory on the road in Montreal this evening. Find these great match-ups and more at one of the best sports betting sites reviewed at Bookmaker.com, and until tomorrow, good luck as always and we’ll see you around here again soon!
