NBA, NHL Playoffs Continue, MLB Action for Sportsbook Bets

Heading into another day packed with great sports action for online sportsbook betting, Tuesday’s venture down to one of the best online sportsbooks reviewed here find us paying a visit to the Betonline Sportsbook, for all the available games in play across the NBA and NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, as well as Major League Baseball, which hosts a full selection of games. Starting the day off with a bang, we’ll jump into the playoff options for betting on sports today, with 3 contests scheduled in the NBA and 1 more on tap for the NHL. In the first of three actionable items for betting on the NBA playoffs today, the Atlanta Hawks once again host the Boston Celtics, who will look to recover from a tough Game 1 loss, 83-74. Boston faces a serious uphill challenge without their star point guard Rajon Rondo, who will sit out tonight’s game due to a suspension levied against him in Game 1 for bumping an official. Without Rondo, Boston is still just a 4 1/2 point underdog heading into tonight’s game, which could make for an excellent pick taking Atlanta to cover the spread. Moving along to the two other games in NBA playoff action tonight, first catch the Los Angeles Lakers at home getting a -5 point favorite against the Denver Nuggets, who simply had no answer in the paint against Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol in Game 1, and will have to find a way to keep up their transition basketball against an LA team that loves settling into half-court basketball. Lastly, check out the betting lines for the Chicago Bulls vs. Philadelphia 76ers, where Chicago is a huge -285 favorite with -6 1/2 points against the spread, as they try to continue their home dominance over the Sixers without the help of Derrick Rose the rest of the way (who is out for the year with a blown ACL).

Checking out today’s options for Major League Baseball, a whole host of items hit the sports betting pages at Betonline Sportsbook, with 15 games spread out across the American and National Leagues tonight. Look for a great opening game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Washington Nationals, as their series gets underway with a solid pitching duel between Trevor Cahill of the DBacks and Jordan Zimmerman of the Nationals. After surprising everyone with one of the best starts in the Majors, the Nationals must stop the bleeding after a 4-game losing skid, but could have a tough time at home against Arizona, who is 6-4 on the year on the road and looking for their third straight win. Another big match-up set for this week lies with the Atlanta Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies, who square off just a few miles away from tonight’s NBA playoff game between the Celtics and Hawks. With a win behind Cole Hamels, Philly could finally get back to .500 ball on the season, but they’ll have to get around Brandon Beachy and a Braves team that owns the third best home record in the MLB thus far. With few teams on hot streaks at the moment (no team in the league has more than 2 consecutive wins right now), look for a couple teams with potential to have great series this week including the San Francisco Giants, who host the Miami Marlins, the New York Yankees, who seek a third straight victory with a win over the visiting Baltimore Orioles, and the Texas Rangers, who have a favorable pitching match-up against the Toronto Blue Jays with Neftali Feliz facing Drew Hutchison.

Wrapping up the days’ venture into online sportsbook bets at Betonline, the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs hold just one featured contest for the evening, with an exciting Game 2 showdown between the New Jersey Devils and the Philadelphia Flyers. After what was an intense 4-3 overtime win in Game 1 for the Flyers, you can surely expect another tight contest for Game 2 this evening, as Philadelphia will try to gain a 2-game advantage before shipping the series over to New Jersey. For the Devils, finding a way to slow down the torrid pace of the Philadelphia offense is crucial, as Claude Giroux and Danny Briere lead the way in the playoffs with 15 and 10 points respectively, and show no signs of slowing down their points accumulation. They’ll simply have to muster more defensive strength to avoid getting into an 0-2 hole after tonight’s game, and getting a big performance out of veteran goalie Martin Brodeur would also help to keep their chances of staying in this series alive.
