Sports Betting – Top Events of the Upcoming Week ( August 10th to 14th)

Top NBA Games – Monday, August 10th

Toronto Raptors vs Milwaukee Bucks

The Raptors have played like potential NBA Finals participants. The Bucks have played like a squad that doesn’t understand team defense. This is a huge game for both teams to get sharp for the playoffs.

Top MLB Games – Monday, August 10th

Minnesota Twins at Milwaukee Brewers

The Twins are solid enough to win the World Series. Milwaukee wants to take the NL Central from the Cubs. This should be a fun interleague battle because both these teams score a ton of runs.

MLS Is Back Finals – Tuesday, August 11th

Portland Timbers vs Orlando City

Portland battles Orlando in the MLS Is Back Finals. The match should be great because both teams played solid in their semifinal battles. Check out the odds on MyBookie.

Top NBA Games – Tuesday, August 11th

Portland Trail Blazers vs Dallas Mavericks

The Blazers are a half a game behind Memphis for the final playoff spot. Every game Portland plays is important. Dallas notched their playoff spot already. But don’t expect the Mavericks to take it easy on Portland. Pay attention to the Jusuf Nurkic versus Kristaps Porzingis center battle. That should be fun!

Top MLB Games – Tuesday, August 11th

Atlanta Braves at New York Yankees

This is a great game for Atlanta to see how they stack up against the Yankees. New York is 4-games ahead of their AL East rivals. The NL East is much deeper than the AL East. So, this game is more important for the Braves than it is for the Yankees.  

Top NBA Games – Wednesday, Aug 12

Miami Heat vs Oklahoma City Thunder

Both squads have locked down playoff spots. Still, this is an excellent game to see which of these teams can upset favored rivals in the postseason.

Top MLB Games – Wednesday, Aug 12

Washington Nationals at New York Mets

The Nationals and Mets both have a shot to grab playoff berths. Atlanta, the favored squad in the NL East, won’t have ace Mike Soroka for the rest of the season. That could open the door for the Nats or NYM.

Top NBA Games – Thursday, Aug 13

New Orleans Pelicans vs Orlando Magic

The Pels need some help to make the playoffs. The Magic may have sewn up a playoff spot when this game happens on Thursday. No matter the situation, this is still a top event next week. Why? Orlando could be a tough “out” for any team in the Eastern Conference Playoffs. So, pay attention to how well the Magic handle Zion in this.

Top MLB Games – Thursday, Aug 13

Milwaukee Brewers at Chicago Cubs

Cubs and Brewers are the class of the NL Central. As of August 6, the Cubs are 3 ½ games ahead of the Brew Crew. Because teams play just 60 games, this matchup means a ton.

Top NBA Games – Friday, Aug 14

Miami Heat vs Indiana Pacers

No NBA game on Friday is as intriguing as Heat-Pacers. After 4 games, the Pacers are 3-1 SU and ATS. The Heat are 2-2 SU and ATS. Both play good defense, and both have a top player. T.J. Warren for the Pacers and Jimmy Butler for the Heat. This matchup should give us an idea of whether either team can upset the Bucks, Celtics, and Raptors in the playoffs.  

Top MLB Games – Friday, Aug 14

L.A. Angels at L.A. Dodgers

If the season ended today, the Dodgers would be a wildcard post-season team. That’s not good for one of the odds favorites to win the World Series. The Angels are 4 games behind the Athletics in the AL West. Both teams have something to play for when this happens on Friday.
