We have already posted some picks and predictions for the first few days, so be sure to check back for more of our blogs and videos at YouTube. Along with the NHL qualifiers, the NHL round-robin is also taking place. The games do not have the same importance as the play-in games, but still, teams are jockeying for position.
NBA up and running
Not only has the NHL returned but the NBA is up and running with games. Fans can watch and bet on NBA games practically every day as they complete the playoff play-in series. The NBA will begin the playoffs on August 17, so there is a sprint to the finish line before the Association begins the postseason. There is a lot of basketball to be played and wagered on.
