An Exciting Monday Night to Start of October

If there is a better way to finish off a Monday night, or for that matter to start a new month, this Monday’s sports action was certainly an excellent way to go about it. With both Monday Night Football between the New England Patriots and the Cincinnati Bengals, as well as the tie-breaking game in Major League Baseball between the Colorado Rockies and the San Diego Padres, these two games alone would provide more than enough action for online sports betting on Monday. While the football game turned out to be somewhat of a bust, with the Patriots clearly the better team on both sides of the ball, the tie-breaker game played in Colorado had to be one of the more exciting games of the year, going 13 innings deep, and having everyone on the edge of their seat from about the 3rd Inning on. It was an unexpected series of events, and with my bet placed on the Rockies at one of our top sportsbooks at, I was certainly in the game for the long haul from start to finish.

While I certainly feel that a celebration is in order for the Colorado Rockies, it is also a very tough loss for Padres fans, who had to endure a very sub-par performance from their ace Jake Peavy, as well as a complete meltdown by Trevor Hoffman to close out the game. I won’t be the one to judge whether or not Matt Holliday was safe at home or not (as it certainly didn’t look to me like he touched home plate), but with that pitcher in that situation, it should have never even come down to that scenario, and the Rockies just seemed destined to win at any cost. Fortunately for myself, my online sportsbook bet for this game fell on the team with the right amount of luck, and I for one am excited to catch the series coming up this week between the Rockies and the Phillies, both team who are hungry for a chance to move on in the playoffs, and who both deserve to be where they are. That being said, if you haven’t ventured down to one of our top sportsbooks here at and place some bets for this week, now is the time to start.

It’s going to be a great week for Major League Baseball this week, as October roars forward with all kinds of great playoff match-ups, and great opportunities for betting on sports. Check out the lines in our featured online sports betting sites, and get set for a great post season with some fresh teams looking to make team history. Both the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs are looking to finally break their streaks of most years as an organization without a World Series, and you can bet this will only add to all the great drama that always accompanies the MLB Playoffs. Until tomorrow, thanks as usual for checking out the best online sportsbooks and online sportsbook reviews here on our site, and good luck on all your sports betting for the MLB postseason!
