Football usually takes center stage here, and it still does even though the college season is over and there are just four teams left in the NFL. But there is more to look for in your online sportsbook. Here are a couple of football matchups, and three more options you should check out.
New England Patriots @ Denver Broncos – Sunday, 3:00 PM ET
The Pats came back to stun the Broncos after spotting them 24 points in the regular season, but now the Broncos will be at home, where they have lost once this year. Can Peyton Manning improve on a dismal head-to-head record against Tom Brady with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line? This AFC title game figures to be something else.
San Francisco 49ers @ Seattle Seahawks – Sunday, 6:30 PM ET
The NFC could be just as good as these two West teams split a pair of meetings in the regular season with the home team winning each time. They also don’t like each other very much; the animosity is very real between the 49ers and the Seahawks, from the head coaches (remember, Jim Harbaugh and Pete Carroll went at it in college before moving on to the NFL).
Golden State Warriors @ Oklahoma City Thunder – Friday, 9:30 PM ET
Not only are these two contenders in the tough Western Conference in the NBA, they are also two of the most exciting teams to watch in the entire league. Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry are superstars in this league and can score from basically anywhere past the halfcourt line, and both teams rank in the top 10 in terms of points scored, so this should be fun to watch.
Montreal Canadiens @ Toronto Maple Leafs – Saturday, 7:00 PM ET
It is always an occasion when these two Original Six rivals meet, and the Maple Leafs are falling back of the pack as they are eight points behind the Habs at the beginning of the week. Montreal is powered from the back by a pair of newly-minted Canadian Olympians in reigning Norris Trophy winner P.K. Subban and Carey Price, with the latter being slated to be the #1 goalie in Sochi. This isn’t a must-win for Toronto, but they can’t afford to fall much further in the East.
Lucien Bute vs. Jean Pascal – Saturday, 10:00 PM ET
The Canadiens won’t be playing at the Bell Centre on Saturday, which frees up the arena for a boxing match of epic proportions, and likely the biggest in Canadian history. Bute and Pascal are native sons of Montreal and will go toe-to-toe for the WBC Diamond belt in this light heavyweight bout, and even though Bute made his name at 168 pounds, he has proven to be adept at 175 as well. Can he bring his knockout power up to 175 pounds to take down Pascal, the former WBC titleholder at light heavyweight? This could be an incredible match on Saturday night on HBO.
