We’re getting ever-so-close to yet another glorious weekend, however at least for sports fans, and those with a taste for betting on sports, the interim time before the end of Friday has a number of great options for online sports betting, including continuing action in the 2010 FIFA World Cup, as well as exciting action in the College World Series of Baseball, and of course the usual string of Major League Baseball games, which are always present every day of the week. For our incursion into the depths of great potential wagers today, we’re headed back to one of the best online sports betting sites at the Bookmaker Sportsbook (read the review of Bookmaker Sportsbook), which features great bonus opportunities, solid customer support, and a reliable and easy-to-navigate website which will have you placing your wagers in no time.
Wrapping up the Group Stage of competition this week, the 2010 World Cup has already been one of the most dramatic and exciting tournaments we’ve seen as of late, and is certain to provide all sports fans with some great opportunities for making a little added cash any day of the week. For Thursday, the third and final games of the Group round take place, including some interesting match-ups in Group F and Group E play. Strangely fighting for survival of their own, the Italian team takes on Slovakia needing a win to secure a top 2 finish in their group, and while definitely on a different class level, Italy will face a tough match against a very physical Slovak team with nothing to lose. Expect a close match, with a goal separating the eventual winner, and for this one, we’re going with Italy 2-1 over the upstart Slovakian team. In other matches today, Paraguay looks to hold off the pesky New Zealand squad, who have already made their mark drawing Italy in the second game of the Group Stage. Paraguay will need a win to advance today, with help from Italy, and our money is on New Zealand’s luck finally running out, after a good tournament showing this year. Lastly for World Cup wagers, check out Japan who looks to hold off Denmark for a shot at a Round of 16 entrance, and the Netherlands, playing some of the most solid ball of the tournament, looks to send off Cameroon with a possible 3 game sweep of their Group.
Baseball action is the anchor leg for online sportsbook bets today, with 12 MLB games, and a very interesting College World Series match-up between South Carolina and Oklahoma. Both teams sit at 50 wins on the year, but something has to give, and we’re backing South Carolina with Blake Cooper against Zach Neal in a great young pitchers duel. Count on some low scoring in this contest, at least through the starting pitching today. For the Majors, look to continuing action in Interleague play to lead to some exciting online sports bets, as the Padres take on the Rays, the White Sox look for win #9 against the Atlanta Braves, the Dodgers vs. Angele duke it out in SoCal and the Toronto Blue Jays face a tough task to avoid a sweep at the hands of Adam Wainwright and the St. Louis Cardinals. Jump on to the Bookmaker.com sportsbook this morning or afternoon, enjoy all the great options for betting on sports, and as always good luck!
