Sunday’s NCAA tournament games decide the Final Four

The two remaining college basketball games on Sunday leading to the NCAA Final Four were a continuation of the excitement that has been going on all month long. Though the Florida Gators definitively handled the Oregon Ducks, the game between UNC and Georgetown gave basketball fans a true taste of what college basketball is all about. The constant back and forth action ending in an overtime victory for the Hoyas kept fans on the edge of their seats throughout the entire game. I for one was lucky enough to have my wagers placed on our featured sportsbook at come through in exciting fashion as Georgetown rallied back late, and finished the UNC Tarheels by a final of 96-84.  Holding UNC to only 2 points from the floor in extra time, Georgetown is a very real threat to take the NCAA Championship, which would make this writer a very happy camper (as I have picked them to win the tourney from the beginning in my bracket selections).  Regardless of how anyone did in the brackets, or online in the sportsbooks, this year’s tournament has had a multitude of great basketball contests, even if mostly top-seeded teams have prevailed.

With the NCAA on hiatus until the Final Four begins later this week, it is a perfect time to focus in on the NHL, which is quickly coming to a regular season close in just a few short games.  For Sunday, the NHL had a number of great contests; of note the cross town rivalry between two storied New York hockey clubs both vying for a spot in the post season. Taking an overtime period to decide the outcome, the Rangers overcame the Isles 2-1, making their playoff hopes more secure and leaving the Islanders clinging two points out with only 6 games remaining. Elsewhere, the Colorado Avalanche rallied in a shootout against my Vancouver Canucks to keep them barely in the playoff hunt. Their fate rests solely with the Calgary Flames who downed the Chicago Blackhawks tonight 3-2 giving them a solid lead for the 8th and final seed in the Western Conference. Though my parlay wager was busted on the Canucks loss this evening, hockey action is always worth wagering on in our featured online sportsbooks. It truly is the fastest, and one of the most exciting games in all sports, and this season has been great with changed rules, more balanced teams, and great divisional rivalries.

Make sure that you mark some NHL and NBA games into your calendar, as the few remaining match-ups in professional hockey and basketball will make for some great wagering in our featured online sportsbooks at Besides, we all need a little something to do before the two Final Four games take place, and this time of the season is fantastic for placing sportsbook wagers. Have a great upcoming week, and check back with us for the latest updates from the exciting world of sports.
