NBA, NCAA, NHL action on tap for sportsbook betting at …

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, especially now that the 2010-11 College Bowl Season has officially gotten underway over the weekend! After a handful of early bowl games over the weekend featuring very lopsided competition, football fans are more than ready to get down to some decent competition, and for Tuesday we’re all in luck as a solid showdown between Louisville and Southern Mississippi takes place this evening in the Beef ‘O’ Brady Bowl from St. Petersburg, Florida. Though the ridiculously named bowl today may not be of the caliber that most are waiting for in bowl games to come, tonight’s match-up is a great taste for things to come, and sports betting fans should get primed with a wager on this game in order to prepare for the better games between ranked teams ahead (most notably a solid match-up tomorrow between #19 Utah and #10 Boise State in the Las Vegas Bowl). That said, 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 (read the review of, and after a bit of personal deliberating will take a pick on Louisville to prevail, as while they sport a weaker record, their stronger competition over the season, and solid offensive attack by running back Bilal Powell and QB Justin Burke leads me towards taking the Cardinals for the first pick of the day.

For continued wagering options at the top online sportsbook at, check into some of the great hoops action in both the NBA and NCAA scheduled for later on today. The game to watch tonight is the match-up between the Dallas Mavericks and the Orlando Magic, in what should be an interesting contest as the Magic begin their rebound from a tough month, and host a team with only one road loss on the year. Expect a very tight game tonight, but a solid chance Dallas ekes out another road win with a potent offense that likely may be too much for Dwight Howard to contest against (as he seems the only prolific scorer for the Magic these days). 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 #11 Kansas State in an interesting home match-up against upstart UNLV (10-2 to start the year), and another interesting contest between #18 Tennessee and the visiting unranked USC, who may be a good look to cover the points spread, as they’ve played very well against ranked competition this year (losing by two at Kansas last week, and soundly defeating Texas at home on Dec. 5th). All-in-all, there are a few solid opportunities for making a little extra cash in today’s sports betting on basketball, so peruse the options at the sportsbook for a few good picks today.

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. With Colorado vs. Los Angeles, St. Louis vs. Atlanta, and Dallas hosting Montreal among the best options available for sports betting at, now is the time to place your bets, root for your home team (or just the best team per match-up today), and hopefully come out a winner! Good luck this evening, enjoy all the College Bowl games and great professional competition to come through the holidays, and as always thanks for checking all the great sportsbooks on our site!
