While it’s back to the daily grind for most of us, the reward for another hard days’ work comes in the form of some great sports betting choices at any one of the top sportsbooks reviewed on our site, and an evening full of sports action that should make for an exciting end to an otherwise pretty droning, dismal day. With tonight’s wager’s comes the NFL’s sixth installment of Monday Night Football for the 2010 campaign, featuring divisional rivals the Tennessee Titans (3-2) against the Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2). With much at stake considering the quality of teams in the AFC South this season, this match-up has huge implications for the race to the playoffs, and it’s a great chance to place a wager at one of the best online sports betting sites reviewed here before the start of the game this evening. With the way Vince Young has been manning the Titans offense of late, there’s a strong case for taking the favorite in this match-up, even on the road. Combined with a bit of a resurgent passing game, star running back looks to be even more effective this week, as the Jags won’t be able to focus all their defensive efforts on clogging up the middle of the field. If the Jaguars are to have a chance, Maurice Jones-Drew will have to have a tremendous effort pulling his team in face of the 11th ranked defense against the run this year. However for the first pick of the day at the Sportsbook.com sportsbook (read the review of Sportsbook.com), I’m banking on a Tennessee win as I love a Jeff Fisher-led team on any given Monday Night.
Moving on to more action in store for betting on sports, it’s a continued round of wagering at the Sportsbook.com sportsbook, taking out a wager on a pivotal Game 2 in the New York Yankees v. Texas Rangers series, taking place from new Yankee Stadium. With the series tied at 1 game apiece, tonight will be a huge test for New York especially, as they have to deal with arguably the best pitcher in baseball right now, Cliff Lee. With awe-inspiring command of his pitching arsenal, Andy Pettite, starting for the Yankees tonight, will have to be on absolute top form, and even then it might not be enough to match what could very well be another no run performance by the Texas ace. If the Yankees are to set themselves up with a 2-1 series advantage, they’ll need some clutch work by the top of their lineup early in the ballgame, as once Lee gets settled in to his rhythm, you can all but kiss your chances of scoring on him goodbye. Between the two great pitchers on the mound tonight, it’s definitely worth a peek at the under wager on total points, banking on the fact that there likely could be less than 2-3 runs in the game between these two horses. I’ll go with the gut in tonight’s game, and bank on another stellar performance from Cliff Lee, and put Texas ahead in the series 2-1 going into Game 4 at Yankee Stadium.
Lastly for sportsbook betting today, the NHL is moving forward with its exciting 2010-11 season, and for Monday find 5 games on tap, with even more history to back up your online sports betting habits at Sportsbook.com. The big game of the night occurs between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Dallas Stars, both getting off to hot starts this season, and looking very strong in the offensive category. I like a big point total tonight, and/or taking the home team (Tampa Bay) with a keen eye for Steven Stamkos, the 20 year old who has been one of the biggest bright spots in the NHL so far this year. This kid can flat out play, and with a solid cast of veterans around him, looks to be the key piece in a Lightning run for the postseason. Make sure to also check out the Pittsburgh Penguins who play host to the physical Ottawa Senators, with the latter team trying to pull out of their series opening slump (going 1-3-1 so far). The Pens are picking up the pace this year after a rough start to the season, and look to win their fourth game in five with a victory at home tonight. It’s a solid bet to bank on Pittsburgh today, as Ottawa, although a good team with good players, has not hit their groove so far this season. With a couple more good match-ups including Toronto hosting a surprising New York Islanders team, the Colorado Avalanche on the road at the Rangers, and the Chicago Blackhawks drawing St. Louis, there’s plenty of opportunities to find the right sportsbook bet on hockey for Monday. However your wagers go today, enjoy the excitement of another fine day of sports betting, check out the top sportsbook at Sportsbook.com and catch us again tomorrow for more updates in the exciting world of betting on sports!
