NBA and NHL Sports Betting This Week
Sports fans will be all over the key NBA betting matchups this week as its regular season comes to an end, while the first round of the NHL playoffs conclude as well. Baseball then rounds out the sports betting opportunities in the days ahead.
Utah currently holds down the final NBA playoff spot in the Western Conference, and they have a chance to nail it down if they can defeat the Phoenix Suns - who can tie the Jazz in the standings with a victory - on Tuesday. Utah will be a slight home favorite in this game, but it’s Phoenix that has won both meetings this season, including one on the road.
The NBA's regular season will come to an end on Thursday, with the Jazz playing host to the Portland Trail Blazers that day. The Suns conclude their regular-season schedule at home on Wednesday night against San Antonio.
Florida will try to send the Devils packing with a win in New Jersey in Game 6 on Tuesday in the lone NHL playoff betting matchup on the day's slate. New Jersey will be a home favorite for this contest, but the Panthers lead 3-2 in the series and already have a win on the road.
Washington and Boston will tangle on the NHL betting lines in a deciding Game 7 on Wednesday night in Beantown. The Bruins will be home favorites, and with their experience in these situations they could see a lot of attention on the NHL betting lines for the pressure-packed contest.
The Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles are contenders in the AL East in the early going, as those teams sit near the top of a tightly-contested division. Toronto has been good on the road so far this year and could be comfortable in this series when it gets underway on Tuesday on the MLB betting lines.
As well, the red-hot Yankees tangle with the scorching Texas Rangers, who are leading the league in wins - they continue their series on Tuesday. The Dodgers are one of the surprises of April and have been an MLB betting favorite most nights – they play Atlanta on Tuesday night in the second game of their series.
