Sports Betting in Summer and Fall

Sports Betting in Summer and Fall: This is a great time of year for sports, isn’t it? The NBA playoffs, the NHL playoffs, baseball heating up as the All Star Game draws near, NFL training camp on the horizon – you’ve practically got it all, and you’ve got it right now. As ever, BetNow is your home for sports betting, no matter what sports you’re into. The NBA and NHL are racing towards their final pairing, while the better teams in the MLB are starting to separate themselves from the pack. You can bet on the sports that are happening right now as well as those that are soon to come. 

Sports Betting in Summer and Fall: Sports Betting the NBA Playoffs 

We don’t have the odds for Game 4 of the Phoenix Suns and Clippers as of this writing. Why not, you might ask? Well, it’s because this blog is being written during the second quarter of the game. Right now, it’s very tight. That said, if the Clippers don’t win this game… well, then things might not be so tight anymore. Then, the Suns would be up 3-0, and it would be hard for even the most ardent fan of the Big Ships to see them coming back to go to the Finals (although they could!) 

That said, it could go the other way, too. The Clippers could gut out a win tonight without Kawhi, and then… just keep doing the same. There’s certainly precedent for teams to win without their best player, even against quasi-impossible odds. (After all, the old “Ewing Principle” didn’t come out of nowhere.) So, by the time you read this blog, we’ll probably have odds on this game. And they could be very different from what you might think right now. 

Betting the Eastern Conference 

Of course, we do have odds for the Eastern Conference game two tomorrow. We had the Bucks winning game one. That did not happen. Trae Young went off and quieted the Bucks’ crowd. You might think that our handicappers may have seen that and thought: “wow, that’s a tough Hawks team. Should we pick them in Game 2?” We don’t. Our pros do not see it that way. As of this writing, we have the Bucks as a 7.5 point favorite at home in Game 2. We believe that the Bucks will get up off of the mat and take this game. 

There’s one powerful reason for that: the Bucks more or less have to. Sure, they could pull a Clippers and go down two games to none and then come back to win. But, it’s a lot harder to do that when you’ve already lost two games in your gym. Then, you have to win in the other team’s gym, with fans who are (quite appropriately) yelling as loudly as possible. That’s rough on any team. How do you see this going? Will the Bucks win Game 2? Or are we one step closer to Atlanta going to the Finals? 

Betting the NHL Playoffs and More 

Going from the Finals to the Final, the hockey conference finals are almost over. Game 7 is tomorrow in Tampa Bay, as the Lightning try to repeat against a more than pesky Islanders squad. Again, we don’t have odds for Game 7 between the Golden Knights and the Habs as of this writing because, well, we don’t know if there’s going to be a Game 7. Right now, the two teams are tied at two in Montreal. If Montreal wins that game on their rink, then they go to the Final for the first time in a long time. If they don’t, they go back to Sin City for what’s sure to be an incredible game. What do you think is going to happen? No matter what you think, you can bet online at BetNow!
