Week in Sports Gambling Preview: Week of Halloween has NBA, NFL, College Football and More NHL Cancellations
NFL Betting Preview: Chargers Look For Spark Versus Chiefs On TNF
After dropping three-straight games in forgettable fashion, the San Diego Chargers will look to get back on track when they take on the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football this week. The Chargers have watched an early division lead evaporate over the past month, and will need to take down an AFC West rival in order to get back to .500 this week. Kansas City has lost four-straight since an overtime win against the New Orleans Saints in week 3 including a 37-20 blowout loss the last time these teams met, and it won’t get any easier with their two Primetime games against the Chargers and Pittsburgh Steelers in back-to-back weeks. Neither team has been able to take advantage of their opportunities this season, but considering San Diego won the first meeting on the road, the Chargers should be a good bet to win at home.
NBA Sportsbook Preview: Regular Season Tips Off With Three Games Tuesday
Basketball fans will have reason to celebrate on Tuesday when the regular season tips off, with three games scheduled for opening night, and a handful to look forward to the following night. While the Washington Wizards taking on the Cleveland Cavaliers is far from a marquee matchup, the Boston Celtics will renew hostilities with the Miami Heat in a rematch of last year’s Eastern conference finals, before the new-look Los Angeles Lakers host the Dallas Mavericks later on. The action continues on Wednesday night with nine games, followed by two key matchups on Thursday, including the Brooklyn Nets’ home debut against the New York Knicks, and a rematch of last year’s Western Conference finals between the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs.
College Football Betting Preview: Huskies Battle Cal In Pac-12 Showdown Friday Night
The Washington Huskies managed to snap a three-game losing skid with an improbable win over the No. 7 Oregon State Beavers on Saturday, and now have the chance to climb back above .500 with another win this Friday night when they travel to face the California Golden Bears. The Huskies have three of their next four games on the road where they haven’t won a game all season, but it isn’t as though Cal has been much better at home where it has lost two of its last three.
NHL Online Betting Preview: NHL To Cancel Winter Classic
With no talks scheduled for this coming week, the NHL is set to cancel this year’s Winter Classic meeting. The two sides haven’t had any formal discussions since talks broke down two weeks ago, and with neither side willing to budge on its stance to get a deal done, it appears as though there could be more cancellations on the way with the very real possibility of an entire season being lost if progress isn’t made over the next couple of weeks. A formal announcement on the cancellation of the Winter Classic is expected on Thursday.
