NBA Conference Finals wagering, more MLB bets for Saturday

With the playoffs winding down in the NBA and NHL, whenever there is a game being played I get especially excited to hop online and place a few wagers on my favorite online sportsbooks listed on For Saturday, it’s back to NBA wagering, where the Utah Jazz look to gain back some lost ground to the San Antonio Spurs tonight in Salt Lake City. This is going to be a difficult wager to place tonight, as the Spurs are definitely the dominant team in the series; however Utah knows how to fight at home, and should be desperate to get a win to avoid the series falling to 3-0 in favor of the Spurs. There is a pretty tight set of betting types available for this game, with the Jazz favored to win, but only with a 2 point margin on the line. I’ll have to go with the total points in this game, posted at 190 on’s website (<a href=””>read the review of BetonUSA</a>), and hope that there won’t be any anemic scoring tonight between the two teams. With a 5:30 p.m. tip-off this evening, I’ll have a few hours to kill before the game, and the excitement begins.

As is always the case, Major League Baseball is in full swing this afternoon and evening, with another L.A. Angels vs. New York Yankees match-up for the earliest day game. I was pleasantly surprised yesterday when my online sportsbook betting for the MLB came through on both parlay wagers placed at My luck for baseball has certainly been better than it has for the NBA and NHL playoff games, and I’m starting to think that the rest of the baseball season could turn out to be quite profitable the way things are going. In fact, as this update is being written, the Angels have just sealed another win against the Yankees, grabbing 3-1 victory as Kelvin Escobar shut down the Yanks with a 7 inning, 6 hit, 1 run performance. All runs for the Angels came in the first inning, which was apparently enough to seal the Yankees’ fate today. With this kind of luck and solid all-around play, it would be no surprise to see the Angels sitting on top of the AL West at the end of the year, as they are looking like the same team that won the World Series just a few years back.

Games just getting underway this afternoon are the Cubs vs. Dodgers in Los Angeles, Atlanta vs. Philadelphia, and Cleveland vs. Detroit.  I’ve taken out a wager on pitching match-ups today at, taking the Cubs to win with Carlos Zambrano on the mound, and Matt Morris pitching for the San Francisco Giants later today against Colorado. There’s really nothing like betting on sports and then getting to have a relaxing day off on a long weekend. For all of your placing online sports bets, I wish you the best of luck today and through the weekend, and make sure to catch that NBA playoff game tonight, which should be a great one. We’ll see you again tomorrow, and thanks for checking out for great online sportsbook reviews, and the best online sports betting sites to choose from.
