If you would have said that the LA Dodgers would already be one game away from the National League Championship series at some time this year, I would imagine that no one would take you any bit seriously. However, as the second playoff game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago Cubs came to a close tonight, one thing is very apparent: this Dodgers team is hot, and it might take more than the Phillies, Brewers or Cubs to muster up the strength to stop them. Notching up 2 wins at Wrigley field while the hometown crowd booed their own players after 3 errors in the 2nd inning led to 5 runs which sealed the game, this series is now all but over for the Cubbies. Sorry to be the one to admit it, but with the Dodgers heading home clicking on all cylinders, and the Cubs starving to score runs, it looks like yet another disappointing season for the Chicago Cubs, who managed to field their best team since 1937 this year. After taking a hit yesterday in my online sports betting on baseball, I decided to lay off this first game, and instead focus my sports betting on the Tampa Bay vs. Chicago game 1, with that game now underway and into the 5th inning with a 6-3 lead for the Rays.
Going to our of our best online sportsbooks at Sportsbook.com (read the review of sportsbook.com) for today’s wagers, I’ve got Tampa to win this game tonight, and once again I’m more than anxious with the young pitching that is on the hill for both teams. Either way though, this is yet another exciting post season game, and I for one am just excited to get the opportunity to be wagering on these games (though I sure could use a win today). This series is definitely going to be a great one no matter what the outcome of this one game is, and I’ve been looking forward to this match-up for quite some time. Both teams have great power on demand, and are solid throughout the rotation, which always makes for hard-to-judge baseball. In this series, for your online sports betting, it probably wouldn’t be too bad of an idea to go with the over betting on total points, since the bats should be hot no matter how deep into the series they go.
As I speak, the jam is over for the White Sox, and the lead stays at 3 runs for now. For the rest of the evening, there is more great baseball action for your online sports betting interests, as the L.A. Angels will look to get even with the Boston Red Sox in game 2 of their series. Even a few College Football games are under way, with a good match-up between the Oregon State Beavers, and the #15 ranked Utah Utes. With so much great sports action throughout the week and weekend, it’s certainly high time to get down to one of our top sportsbooks, and place your wagers for anything that might suit you. Friday is just around the corner, so enjoy the sports action tonight, and have a great weekend of online sports betting to come.
