MLB Playoffs Get Underway, CFL Football on Tap and More …

It’s that exciting and much anticipated time once again when just one day remains in the ho-hum boring world of the regular work week, however now that Friday has arrived, it’s time to celebrate the upcoming few days of freedom with a host of possibilities for online sports betting at one of the top sportsbooks reviewed right here at! We jump into the online sports betting action today with our first look at the opening games of the 2011 Major League Baseball playoffs, as the American League Divisional Series get underway with two games scheduled as the Texas Rangers host the Tampa Bay Rays, and the New York Yankees host the Detroit Tigers. Tonight’s match-ups will be a great source of entertainment both for online sports betting and for general viewing pleasure, so without any further adieu join me at one of the top sports betting sites found right here, such as the one at, and check out the lines for the games getting underway tonight.

There’s no bigger pitching match-up in MLB Baseball either during the regular season or now into the playoffs, than the one taking place tonight as New York’s C.C. Sabathia takes the mound in opposition to Detroit’s Justin Verlander. A likely candidate for the AL Cy Young award, Verlander’s amazing 24-5 record, 2.40 ERA with 240 strikeouts precedes him heading into this critical Game 1 of the ALDS from Yankee Stadium, meanwhile C.C. Sabathia will seek once again his 20th win on the year, even though the regular season has come to pass. In the opening game of this series, I like the Tigers over the Yankees as Verlander comes off a rare poor outing (7 innings, 5 earned runs against Baltimore on 9/24), and will look to shut down the Yankees’ bats tonight by himself. In the second game of the evening, the Texas Rangers and C.J. Wilson host the Tampa Bay Rays and Matt Moore, the impressive 22 year-old who earned a Game 1 start over Wade Davis and Jeff Niemann in part because of his outstanding 5 scoreless innings with 11 strikeouts he issued against the Yankees for his first career win. A gamble with a young pitcher for Game 1 at a hitter’s ballpark like the one in Arlington, but a gutsy move by manager Joe Maddon that could pay off if Moore gets a win and James Shields and David Price come up in the rotation in Games 2 and 3.

To close up another fine day of online sports betting at one of the top online sportsbooks, make sure to check out the two games slated for CFL Football, as a big clash between the injury riddled Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Montreal Alouettes should make for an interesting showdown between two of the top teams in the league, and out West the Edmonton Eskimos seek to defend their first place hold in the West Division as the surging B.C. Lions could pull even with them in the standings with a win at home. For future wagers on upcoming NCAA Football, be certain to look over the top action taking place for Week 5 set for Saturday, as huge games like #3 Alabama at #12 Florida, #11 Virginia Tech hosting #13 Clemson and #14 Texas A&M vs. #18 Arkansas should be just the tip of the iceberg in a great offering of College Football match-ups for online sports betting. Make sure to check out all these potential betting items at the Bodog sportsbook today, be sure to look over all the action available from Major League Baseball playoffs, to the CFL, NCAA and NFL and have yourself a great Friday filled with what will hopefully be very positive outcomes for your sportsbook bets placed!
