March Madness moves on to the Sweet 16, more Sportsbook …

It has officially been an exciting first portion of the NCAA tournament. With many sportsbook wagers placed over the course of the last two days, myself and many others are sorting out what’s left of our brackets, and how much money we will have left over for further wagering on the NCAA tournament. While there have been plenty of great games for sports fans to wager on in our featured online sportsbooks, what is most surprising still is the relative lack of upsets being handed to top seeded teams. Yesterday, only a few higher seeded teams were bumped off, including Wisconsin who fell somewhat surprisingly to UNLV, and Texas, who was upset handily by USC. After Sunday’s match-ups, every #1 seeded team is still remaining, and no team higher than a #7 seed is left. So much for the Cinderella story this year, as it will all coming down to the heavy hitters from the Sweet 16 on out.  Though I will be the first to admit the disappointment from not getting to see a long shot make it deep into the NCAA tournament, my wagers placed on our featured sportsbooks at have definitely benefited from the lack of upsets, and I’m just happy to have money left to keep wagering in the next round of play.

With the NCAA tournament on hold until Thursday, there will be plenty of sporting action to keep fans busy in the sportsbooks throughout the remainder of the week. While Sunday’s hoops action certainly kept wagers mostly on NCAA basketball, the NBA and NHL leagues are coming close to wrapping up regular season play, giving plenty of opportunities to place some sportsbooks bets. Although I personally have taken out enough wagers for this weekend already, tomorrow night will be another action-packed day for sports, and I’m all set to place more wagers for Monday night’s contest. First of all, my beloved Canucks will be taking on the Edmonton Oilers from Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alberta.  Holding only a 1 point lead over the second place Minnesota Wild, each game from here out will be ever-so-important for Vancouver. Since there is only one other NHL on the slate for Monday, I’ve taken out a quick two-team parlay at In the other contest, Pittsburgh looks to take a share of the Atlantic Division lead, while the NY Rangers are sitting right on the edge of playoff contention. These should indeed make for a couple great match-ups on a usually slow night for hockey.

On the NBA side of things, Monday will be a little slow in the online sportsbooks, as there are only two more match-ups scheduled in professional hoops for the evening. However, as the NBA season also winds down, fans should be getting prepared for yet another postseason, and taking out wagers on the teams fighting for playoff spots. Even with just a few contests available, sportsbook wagering is always a fun option for sports fans this time of year.  I’m actually a little glad to be able to take a break from college hoops, and have a slow night for once! I sincerely hope that you have enjoyed March Madness, and have been successful in your sportsbook wagers during this crazy time of year. Thank you again for using for the best online sportsbooks and casinos on the internet. We’ll see you again soon!
