NFL conference championship games, NBA rivalries, and a full slate of NHL games highlights a busy weekend of viewing and betting
Okay, so we're still a full day away from the start of the weekend. But we can still look ahead and get excited, right?
Indeed, this looks to be an action-packed weekend in sports! There are plenty of NFL, NHL, and NBA matchups worth watching on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Who knows -- maybe we'll even find a game or two worth betting on! Okay, so you knew that was coming. If there's a game on the schedule, it's always more fun to have a little bet down on the outcome.
The whale of the week, of course, are the two NFL conference championship games happening this Sunday. From a viewing standpoint, it's going to be impossible to top last week's slate of action. Incredibly, all four football games were thrillers and went down the final play, which determined the ultimate outcome.
Nonetheless, this week's Cincinnati-Kansas City matchup is quite intriguing since it matches the super Chiefs who are hosting their fourth straight championship game against the league's new-kid-on-the-block Cinderella team, the Bengals.
Meanwhile, the NFC championship is going to be the "Battle for California." We'll see if the 49ers can beat the Rams for a third time this season.
The NBA offers a preview of what might be this year's championship finals.
Brooklyn, the odds on favourite to win it all this season, travels to Golden State.
This interconference battle could be the game of the year until the playoffs begin. Even if they don't end up at the top seeds in each conference, there's no doubt these are star-powered teams and anytime they tangle should be quite a show.
The Nets and Warriors tip off at 5:30 PT this Saturday night.
In the NHL, Saturday all day long will be a hockey fan's fantasy. All 7 Canadian teams are in action. There's a game in every region and time zone.
The first puck drops in Ottawa at noon, and action continues until the late nightcap in Calgary.
Oh, and let's not forget the 2022 Winter Olympics begin this coming week in China. This might not be the typical Olympics that we're all used to watching, but Canadian sports fans will have plenty events to cheer. The national team is favoured in several events.
We'll cover many of these competitions in later reports, and will also preview the most popular events at Pointspreads.ca.
