This week has to be one of the most exciting weeks in college basketball, as all teams within a fighting grasp of the NCAA tournament duke it out for the final seed positions left. Across the country, league championships are beginning, and some basketball teams have already been guaranteed a spot for the Big Dance. On Tuesday night, a handful of games were available for wagering on in our featured sportsbooks, and this writer decided to take a shot placing a few bets on the mid-major teams fighting for coveted seeds granted by winning league tournaments. With four men’s basketball games on the night, a four team parlay wager, taken out at www.Sportsbetting.com, seemed like a fun way to test the waters to find a potential cinderella story. The game of the night, pitting #17 Butler against underdog Wright State happened to be a perfect example of what could, and probably will happen in this year’s NCAA tournament. With home court advantage Wright State managed to upset Butler 60-55, and in the process busted my four team parlay right off the bat. Since I only put up slightly less than 10 bucks on the wager, it’s no big deal, and hopefully I will have better luck as tournaments continue throughout the week.
Elsewhere in sports for Tuesday there was exciting action in the NBA that made for a few solid potential wagering opportunities in our featured sportsbooks. I caught the double overtime game in Minnesota, as the Timberwolves managed to come from behind to beat the Lakers 117-107, further bringing up questions about whether or not the Lakers have any depth heading down the home stretch towards the playoffs. On the other hand, the once written off Minnesota Timberwolves team is certainly showing signs that they have a good chance of making the post season this year, creeping ever so close to the struggling Denver Nuggets who have now disappointingly dropped below .500. These teams battling it out for final playoff spots is in stark contrast to the playoff hopes for the Dallas Mavericks, which have come to full realization already. Winning the most games to this point in the season since the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls, Dallas has already clinched a playoff berth while riding on a 16 game win streak, including going 3 full months without losing at home. It will be a great playoff race as Dallas, San Antonio, and Phoenix will all be fighting for a shot at the NBA Finals. It’s going to be a great post-season this year, even if the regular season has been slightly weak for a majority of teams.
Sports action for this week will certainly be full of exciting wagering opportunities on our featured sportsbooks at CasinoReview.org. I for one can’t wait for the start of the Pac-10, Big-12, and ACC Tournaments that will all be taking place over the course of this week and into the weekend. Make sure that you get a chance to hop on an online sportsbook or two, because you certainly won’t want miss out on some practice wagering before the college basketball brackets begin in less than two weeks. Check back with us tomorrow for more sports updates, and hopefully for myself and everyone else, better luck will be just around the corner. Have a great night, and thanks again for using www.CasinoReview.org for the best in online sportsbooks and casinos the internet has to offer.
