Monday Night Football kicks off a new week of online …

Starting off another work week is never an easy proposition, especially after a weekend chalk full of great sports contests, exciting options for online sports betting, and tons of games at all hours of the day to keep us sports junkies entertained indefinitely. However, with Monday Night comes the next installment of Monday Night football, and this Monday features an exciting game between the San Diego Chargers and the Denver Broncos in an AFC West clash, with the Chargers hosting, and looking to pick up their 3rd straight win on route towards their typically stellar 2nd half of the football season. With online sports betting today happening at Players Only sportsbook (read the review of, we’ll take a shot on the Monday Night game for the first wager of the day, and without a doubt the favorite to win tonight’s match-up is San Diego, playing well at home, needing their first win in the AFC West, and clearly outmatching Denver on both the offensive and defensive sides of the football. With San Diego’s poor play to start the season coming only with special teams issues and a lack of turnovers for the defense, look for the improving Chargers to count on Phillip Rivers to run a more even game plan against a shaky Denver D, and put enough pressure on Kyle Orton’s one-dimensional offense to prevail in this big match-up tonight.

For other sportsbook betting opportunities on Monday, The NBA comes in with 8 exciting match-ups for sports betting at the Players Only Sportsbook, including a big match-up as the Boston Celtics visit the Atlanta Hawks, looking to avoid back-to-back road losses after a close contest last night at Toronto. It’s the best place for Boston to come in to, as the Hawks have not played their best ball at home, and have been struggling to find a balanced game for 4 quarters of play recently. I like the well-rounded Celtics team to win the first pick of the night, on the backs of solid play all the way down the bench to lead the charge. Moving to other match-ups for sports betting on the NBA, Steve Nash comes back to the line-up for the Phoenix Suns as they face the Houston Rockets, a game that looks to be a good bet on the over wager on total points at 210. These are two teams that are smaller can run without stopping when matched with similar teams, so expect the scoreboard to light up tonight in this contest. Check out the Oklahoma City Thunder quietly moving up the ranks, looking for their tenth win on the season backed by outstanding play from Kevin Durant and his young support group. Elsewhere a huge match-up between the San Antonio Spurs and Orlando Magic gets underway, the Utah Jazz look for their 10th win against the Sacramento Kings, and the Denver Nuggets ride in to face Golden State, a team that started strong yet is fading more quickly than expected. All around great action is in store for sportsbook bets on NBA basketball, so check out these great options today before action gets underway.

Rounding out the betting options for Monday, look to another handful of contests in the NHL, as some great match-ups make for exciting action on the ice tonight. I love the match-up between the Philadelphia Flyers and the visiting Montreal Canadiens, with the Flyers looking to bounce back against the Habs after a shutout last week. These are two of the hottest teams in the league, so expect a tight game, but I like Brian Boucher to keep playing better and the Flyer offense to be luckier with their shots on goal against Carey Price this time (who stopped 41 shots in the shut-out last time around). The Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay should also be a great match-up to check out, and with Tim Thomas looking to be on the bench in place of Tukka Rask for the Bruins, I give the nod to the home-ice skating Lighting, behind Steven Stamkos and Company. With plenty of other wagers for NHL Hockey, as well as NCAA Basketball action continuing onward today, you’ll easily be able to find at least a couple of profitable wagers worth looking into, and hopefully some added change in your online sports betting account for the remainder of the week. I for one can’t wait to get my hands on more Basketball wagers as the NCAA ramps up action (including a huge match-up tomorrow as #1 Duke takes on #4 Kansas State), so make sure to keep tabs on how the top teams in College Hoops play to start the year, and start lining up good wagers on down the road as trends stand out more and more each day. For us at, have a great rest of the week, thank you for stopping by as always, and we’ll see you tomorrow with more exciting updates for online sports betting!
