As 2011 quickly comes to a close, we sports fans press on with the final two days of online sports betting, in the hopes of ending the year on a good note, and with hopefully a bit more cash in our online sports betting accounts to start off another year of sportsbook bets with! Getting into the sports contests set on the bettinon Wednesday, fans have grewat options for betting on sports ranging from College Bowl games to NHL Hockey, with plenty of NCAA and NBA basketball in between, and there is really no better time than right now to head down to one of the best online sportsbooks reviewed here, and get in while the gettin’ is good! For me, it’s a trip back to the Intertops Sportsbook, where a proven reputation of excellence as well as great customer support and a great website have sports betting fans coming back time and time again to place wagers on this great site. A staple in the stable of sportsbooks right here, and tried and tested by yours truly for the last 5 years, Intertops Sportsbook is one of the most trusted, highly-regarded, and highest reviewed sportsbooks anywhere.
For betting on sports today, take a look pair of College Bowl games lined up, with couple of good-looking match-ups set to make for exciting online sports betting this evening. The first good look for bowl games today is between Toledo and Air Force in the Military Bowl, with the former team holding a solid 7-1 conference record in MAC play, amounting to an 8-4 overall on the year. While Air Force comes in at 7-5 overall and just 3-4 in the Mountain West conference, they are winners of 4 out of their last 5 contests to close out the regular season, and had a very good showing at then-#5 Boise State in a 37-26 loss. This game should be a great battle as we’ve seen in bowl games already finished this week, but with Toledo’s high-powered offense clicking on all cylinders right now, we’ll look for the Rockets to cover the 3 points against the spread and pick up the bowl win tonight. Moving on to the biggest bowl match-up of the day, turn to the Holiday Bowl down in San Diego, CA, where the California Golden Bears take on the Texas Longhorns. Cal rides in on a hot streak to close out the season, winning 3 of 4 with the lone loss coming in a close 31-28 loss at #9 Stanford, while Texas is struggling to manage a quarterback situation that hasn’t been good all year long. While I picked Texas to win in my College Bowl pool this year, I’m reneging on that prediction with a little more research on the match-up, and with the offensive advantage firmly in Cal’s court behind talented QB Zach Maynard and leading rusher Isi Sofele, who should give Texas’ firm defense trouble. With either David Ash or Case McCoy not looking like a good bet to back for Texas at QB, I’ll take Cal to win tonight as the underdog at +155 odds, with a solid in-state advantage and better confidence coming into this match-up in San Diego.
To finish off the sportsbook betting for today, look to a plethora of great NBA and NCAA Basketball contests on the betting lines at Intertops Sportsbook, as well as a few games in NHL Hockey action to highlight your sports betting experience. For the NBA, look to the Miami Heat to start the season 3-0 with a win over Charlotte tonight, we’ll also chase a solid-starting Atlanta Hawks team with a wager on them to overcome the Washington Wizards at home, and to round off a 3-team parlay today we’ll bank on the Oklahoma City Thunder to move to 3-0 as well as they take on the Memphis Grizzlies in what should be a great rematch from last year’s brilliant 7-game showdown in the Western Conference Semifinals. Checking out some choice sports betting options for NCAA hoops tonight, look for a great match-up between #15 Indiana and #17 Michigan State, #4 Louisville shoots for its best start in school history as they open Big East play at home against the surging #12 Georgetown Hoyas, and #7 Baylor seeks a similar 13-0 start as they get a challenge from their first ranked foe in the scrappy #14 Mississippi State Bulldogs. Last but not least, find a slew of great NHL games on the ice tonight featuring top teams facing off as Vancouver takes on San Jose, Los Angeles faces Chicago, the New York Rangers head into battle against the Washington Capitals and the Minnesota Wild try to break out of a crushing 7-game losing streak with a tough road match-up against Nashville.
