New Year closes in, last bets of 2010 at

As 2010 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 on Wednesday, fans have options for betting on sports ranging from College Bowl games to Premier League Football, and from NCAA and NBA basketball to NHL Hockey, and there is really no better time than right now to head down to one of the best online sportsbooks reviewed right here, and get in while the gettin’ is good! For me, it’s a trip back to the flagship of online sports betting, at sportsbook (read the review of, 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 4 years, is one of the most trusted, highly-regarded, and highest reviewed sportsbooks anywhere. Listed as a featured sportsbook with companies like ESPN, you know it’s first in sports as well.

For betting on sports today, take a look at the three College Bowl games, with a number of good looking picks to take in lopsided match-ups. The first good look for bowl games today is between Maryland and East Carolina in the Military Bowl, with the former team holding a decent 5-3 record in ACC play, amounting to 9-4 overall on the year. East Carolina comes in at under .500 ball on the season out of a weaker Conference USA schedule, and is clearly an underdog heading into this match-up. Even though highly favored, Maryland remains a proper pick, especially for a parlay wager today, should you head that route for online sports betting. On to the Texas Bowl, while Baylor holds home field advantage, Illinois looks to be the better 7-6 team in this match-up, especially with the 11th-ranked ground attack behind NFL-bound Mikel Leshoure likely to cause problems for the Baylor Bears’ defense, who have given up an average of 50 points in their final three games of the season (albeit all to ranked, and good, opponents). It’ll be a ground attack versus aerial today, and either way, it should make for an exciting, high-scoring affair, even if neither of the teams in play really deserve to be playing in a bowl game (as is the case for more than half the bowl-eligible teams these days). Lastly for College Football bets today, the final match-up on the day likely to be the most lopsided, as #14 ranked Oklahoma State heads for a showdown with Arizona in the Alamo Bowl. Arizona, who finished terribly in the regular season on four straight losses, likely won’t stand a chance against the high-powered offense of the Cowboys, who are coming off one of their best seasons in history. Nick Foles at QB may be the only hope for Arizona to keep this game close, but against the tandem of Brandon Weeden and Justin Blackmon on the other side, they may be out of luck in tonight’s showdown.

To finish off the sportsbook betting for today, look to NBA Basketball, NHL Hockey, as well as a few games in English Premier League action to highlight your sports betting experience. For the NBA, turn to the Los Angeles Lakers vs. New Orleans Hornets, as Kobe Bryant and company try to get back to winning ways on the road against a slipping Hornets crew, and otherwise look for plenty of mismatches tonight to lead to good opportunities for lumping games together in parlay action. In the NHL, find the game of the night between Detroit and Dallas, with the Red Wings coming to town looking to put plenty of scores on the board to get past a tough home Stars team. With these games and more, check out all the best bets today and any day at, where the action is always hot in the sportsbook, and the excitement makes a bland day great again!
