NBA, NCAA, NHL action, start of College Bowl Season in …

I certainly hope that at least some of you have gotten this week off, or at least have only tomorrow to work this week, as the holiday season is primed for great sports action each and every day of the week, starting with today’s kick-off of bowl season! This College Bowl Season starts it off right, with the Las Vegas Bowl featuring #14 ranked BYU against #18 Oregon State. You certainly won’t want to miss out on watching this game, let alone a chance to wager on the first of what should be a series of great games over the next two weeks. For the first wager of the day, I double back to an old favorite at the sportsbook (<a href=””>read the review of</a>), and after much gut checking, have BYU down for a wager (not to mention my bowl bracket pick), even though I typically go with PAC-10 over Mountain West any day of the week. There just may be a changing of the guard in terms of dominance out west this year, and this game could be the defining example of whether the MWC has finally been ordained into the ranks of the power conferences. My bet says they have.

For continued wagering options at the top sportsbook at, check into some of the great hoops action in both the NBA and NCAA. The game to watch tonight is the match-up between the Dallas Mavericks and the Portland Trailblazers, in what should be an interesting contest. There are plenty of lopsided games featured for the NBA tonight, so while there may not be too many good options for games to catch on the ‘tube, the games listed at the best online sportsbooks reviewed here will be popping with good chances to make some extra cash. Continuing with basketball bets, check out the NCAA as well today, which features #9 Michigan State against #2 Texas, and another interesting contest between #19 Washington and unranked Texas A&M, who look to gain a possible Top 25 ranking with a win and a current 9-2 record to start the season. For tonight’s game though, the Aggies have a tough test on the road against a Husky team that is undefeated (7-0) at home thus far.

With a few wagering chances in the NHL tonight, hockey fans can get into the mix as well, as with each and every day there are exciting match-ups between well-matched teams (yay, league parity!). With the Sharks vs. Blackhawks, Predators vs. Canucks and Ducks vs. Avalanche games available for sports betting at, now is the time to place your bets, root for your home team (or just the best team), and hopefully come out a winner! Good luck this evening, thanks for checking all the great sportsbooks on our site, and happy holidays!
