What a fantastic Saturday it is for sports fans eager to place some wagers on the most exciting sports action available online at the best online sports betting sites on the web! With Saturday hosting tons of action across various sports leagues, now is a great time to set your sites on your favorite types of wagers, by heading down to one of the best sportsbooks reviewed here, such as the one we’re visiting today at the sportsbook (read the review of For betting on sports today, it’s all about Game 6 in the Western Conference Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Phoenix Suns, as the Lakers look to dispose of the Suns in the same fashion that Boston removed the playoff hopes of Orlando just last night with a 96-84 win at home. Luckily for the Suns, at least their Game 6 hopes hinge on them being able to knuckle up at home to send the series back to Los Angeles for Game 7. However we can already see the Boston-Los Angeles series on the horizon, knowing just how badly the Lakers would like to take another championship from the all-time most winning team in the NBA, so look for the Lakers to come out swinging with plenty of offensive brunt to take on the smaller, faster Suns.

Moving to the NHL for online sportsbook bets today, the start of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals get underway in Chicago with the Blackhawks hosting the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 1, in what should be a very exciting final series to cap off another great season of NHL Hockey. If one thing may be of note in this series, it’s the route that each team has taken to get this far. Chicago has played outstanding hockey on the road, and now at home, meanwhile the Flyers have had to fight for every game of each series, and could be facing some burn out heading into the series with one of the toughest, youngest teams in the league. If there is one player that Philly needs to focus on in this series, it’s Dustin Byfluglien, who has been simply outstanding in front of the net in all series thus far. Compound that with the likes of Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Duncan Keith and the rest of the Blackhawks attack, and Philadelphia certainly faces an uphill battle once again; at least this year their fully capable of playing the underdog role, and coming back from oblivion when it looks like the lights are out on them. For today’s match-up, we’re looking for some opening game jitters from both teams, with plenty of offense, and a win for Chicago to start the series off.

In Major League Baseball bets at today, definitely make sure to check out the featured game between the Phillies and Marlins, as the pitching duel between Roy Halladay and Josh Johnson is not to be missed. Low scoring should be the emphasis for betting on sports in this one, as both pitchers are on fire this year, and should be up to the challenge facing one another this afternoon. For further great baseball betting options, check out Carlos Silva for the Chicago Cubs who looks to go 7-0 with a start against St. Louis, as well as Carl Pavano at home for the Twins vs. Rangers, and Boston vs. K.C. with Clay Buchholz starting against the struggling Zach Greinke (1-6 so far this year). Any which way you like to place your wagers at one of the best online sportsbooks, check out these games and more for Saturday, and hopefully score some added cash for future bets on all the great sports action available every day!
