Great NBA and MLB sportsbook action for Monday

Unlike most Mondays, where going back to the daily grind often supercedes any sort of excitement for the rest of the day, this Monday was a great day for betting on sports, specifically with the big New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox series taking place, as well as the first game in the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Detroit Pistons Conference Finals. With no game scheduled Monday in the NHL, the focus was clearly on a few selected games, however with no lack of excitement and great online sportsbook betting opportunities to be had. To start the day’s sportsbook betting off right, a wager on the NBA would certainly be necessary, so heading to one of our best online sportsbooks at (<a href=””>read the review of BetUS</a>) seemed appropriate. In the Cleveland vs. Detroit series, I will have to go with playoff experience as the backing for my wagers, and as such take the Detroit Pistons to win Conference Finals match-up. For the first game, deciding on Detroit to win turned out to be the right move, as the Pistons shut down LeBron James to only score 10 points, and secure a 79-76 win. This win does not bode well historically for the Cavs, as Detroit is 14-1 in series play after winning the first game. If Cleveland expects to have any chance at all, they must split the series before heading back home.

Major League Baseball has had some great wagering opportunities on our featured online sportsbook gambling sites, especially as sports fans have been treated to a bit of  inter league play in the usual mix of action. The hype for Monday was certainly on the Yankees vs. BoSox contest, and New York certainly has something to prove after being ousted by Boston earlier this year. With the Yanks still under .500 for the year, a win on Monday would be critical, especially for what will be a hotly contested race in the AL East this year. With a 6-2 victory in New York last night, riding a home run hot streak by Alex Rodriguez, the Yankees move to 20-23 on the year overall, but still remain a whopping 9.5 games back of their rivals. It certainly is early in the season, but New York’s pitching woes will need some dramatic improvement if they expect to get anywhere this year. Chien-Ming Wang certainly filled the void last night, going 6 1/3 innings with only two runs to secure the much needed victory.

Sportsbook betting for the week will only continue to get better, as more NBA Conference Finals games keep coming up, as well as a definite match-up in the Stanley Cup Finals by the end of Thursday night (if necessary). Look for more online sportsbook betting to come on our featured websites at, and don’t miss out on all the great action in the NBA, NHL, and MLB that betting on sports brings to sports fans this week.
