After what was truly a wild January 1st, sports fans are treated to yet another great day of sports action, and online sportsbook betting as College Football and Basketball, as well as the NHL and NBA have full plates to suit any sports fans’ fancy. After dropping just a few bucks yesterday (and unfortunately sealing my fate in the College Bowl pool I happen to be in after Oregon’s loss) I look to rally back with a fresh set of options for betting on sports, starting with the College Bowl games remaining. Must, get, redemption, somewhere….it’s a unique day for Bowl games today, as only 1 out of 10 teams is actually ranked. Interestingly enough, it may be the one true upset of the day as #18 Oklahoma State takes on Ole Miss. Will Mississippi may have had a bad ride this year in the SEC losing all of their four games in conference, I like Dexter McCluster and the Ole Miss offense to put more numbers on the board at the end of the day, and win this game. Elsewhere the Mike Leach-less Texas Tech Raiders face off against Michigan State, South Florida has a favorable match-up against Northern Illinois, Arkansas should have no trouble against East Carolina, and Connecticut and South Carolina round out all the Bowl action available for top sportsbook betting.
With a relatively mild day of College Football in terms of Top 25 teams, there is plenty of action found elsewhere, as the NBA and NHL both contribute 12 games apiece for sportsbook betting options. I’m always a fan of the Utah Jazz at home, however tonight will be a tough call against the Denver Nuggets. Coming off a 3 game losing streak, the Nuggets need a win today to avoid putting themselves in a serious rut. Utah is the favorite in this one, but I like the Nuggets to cover the point spread for wagering today. Meanwhile my new default home team (as the Seattle SuperSonics are no more) the Portland Trailblazers should cruise at home against Golden State, as should Boston, who hosts the Toronto Raptors. In the NHL, I’m looking for Vancouver to get a win on the road against division rival Dallas, as well as throwing in the Sharks (looking for 8 wins in a row) and Blackhawks into a small parlay wager, over at one of the top sportsbooks at Bodog Sportsbook (<a href=”http://www.casinoreview.org/sports_betting/bodog.html”>read the review of Bodog Sportsbook</a>). A top site for some exciting bets any day of the week, count on the Bodog sportsbook to have just what you want any day of the week.
Last but certainly not least today for sportsbook bets at Bodog, it’s College Hoops action galore, with plenty of Top 25 teams playing. Exciting games include Oregon at #16 Washington in Pac-10 action, #5 Syracuse hosting Pittsburgh (who is still unranked despite being 11-2 overall, hmm) and Marquette taking on #8 Villanova. I love some good College Basketball action any day of the week, and you can certainly find a handful of games available for your online sports betting today. Take in all the action, enjoy the rest of the weekend, and we’ll see you again soon for more sports betting updates on the hottest sports action around the globe!
