With a rare two day break from soccer matches we thought it'd be a great time to briefly chat about various bets available in other sports available this week on Uwin.com.
Hockey: No, unfortunately the NHLPA and the league have not come to terms on a new collective bargaining agreement that would see the pros hit the ice again. However, one of our nation's great pastimes is underway this week in the form of the World Junior Hockey Championship, which is taking place in Russia.
With Canada always being favoured to win the championship by our overzealous domestic media, the boys in red have been boosted by some young talent that normally would have been playing in the NHL right now. With a 9-3 win under its belt already over Germany yesterday, Canada faces a stiffer test against Slovakia tomorrow, yet is offered only at 1.04 to win outright. The spread sees Canada down -4.5 goals with a payout of 1.77 should it win by five, while the Slovaks are at 1.91.
Like Rocky Balboa and Ivan Drago did over 20 years ago, the USA and Russia will face off in what will surely be an entertaining game. The home side is favoured at evens (2.00) while the Americans are not far off with a 2.63 offering. Check Uwin's website daily for new game odds.
UFC: Yes, while the sport is actually called mixed martial arts, everybody knows the UFC and there is a great card featuring a big heavyweight tilt this Saturday night that no fan of combat sports should miss. Current UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos will fight the man he beat for the title over a year ago in Cain Velasquez. The heavy handed champ is paying 1.53 to defeat Velasquez again and 2.70 to repeat his first round knockout, while the Mexican-American is paying 2.50 to regain his title.
Football: Yes, we all know soccer really is football, but in these here parts we are referring of course to gridiron. Uwin has a great series of offerings for the sport as it specializes in football odds and bonuses worldwide. This is also one of the most highly bet on times of the year for the sport, with both the final regular season day for the NFL coinciding with the start of the NCAA Bowl Series.
The big game in the NFL on Sunday is definitely between the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys, where the loser is eliminated from making the playoffs. Given +3.0, Dallas is paying out 2.05 while down the same amount the Redskins are at 1.80.
With too many games going in the Bowl Series to list, there are tons of options available to you so have a look and see what you like. The usual suspects like USC, Michigan State, and Ohio are all in action so claim the bonus that Uwin has on tap and lay down some of that free coin on who you like.
