Betting Action: Weekly Sports Recap & Updates

Top Sports Events for This Weekend – December 25 – December 26


Santa Loves the NBA


To kick off the Christmas Day NBA slate of games, we’ll see Trae Young return to the Garden to take on the Knicks. Young became a villain last year in the playoffs as he torched the MSG crowd and knocked the Knicks out of the playoffs.

Santa’s next stop is in Milwaukee, as the Boston Celtics will take on the Milwaukee Bucks. The NBA fans are hoping that Giannis Antetokounmpo will clear the COVID protocol and will make an appearance in this one.

The top game of the day will be in Phoenix, as the NBA’s best team, the Suns, will host Steph Curry and the Warriors. These two squads have already met twice this season, with the series even at one game apiece. We’re hoping for a great Steph Curry show in this one.

Next up is the Brooklyn Nets heading to Los Angeles to take on the Lakers. Things haven’t been going well for the Lakers as of late, but having the depleted Brooklyn squad come to town may be what the Lakers need.

We’re not sure if we’ll see Kevin Durant in this one, as he has been placed in the league’s health and safety protocol.

After a long day, Santa’s final stop will be in Utah, as the Jazz will host the Dallas Mavericks. Dallas will probably be without Luka Doncic, so this one won’t be the matchup that we were hoping for.


A Great Christmas for NFL Fans


Not only will we see NBA action on Christmas, but we’ll also see two premier NFL games. The first one will see the Cleveland Browns, a team fighting for their playoff lives, head to Green Bay to take on the league’s best team, the Packers.

We’re looking forward to seeing Aaron Rodgers in action. Rodgers is one of the top candidates for the league’s MVP award.

The second game of the day will see one of the league’s hottest teams, the Indianapolis Colts, head to sunny Arizona to take on the Cardinals. We’ll see if Arizona can figure out a way to slow down Colts running back Jonathan Taylor.

On Sunday, we’ll see a huge game in the AFC East, as the Buffalo Bills will travel to New England to take on the Patriots. The Bills desperately need a win in this one to stay in the playoff hunt. After a rough 2020 season, the Patriots have come back to take over the AFC East once again.

We’ll also see numerous other games with playoff implications, as the Los Angeles Rams will head to Minnesota to take on the Vikings, the Baltimore Ravens will clash with the Cincinnati Bengals, the Denver Broncos and Las Vegas Raiders will square off, and Big Ben and the Steelers will head to Arrowhead to take on the Kansas City Chiefs.

What a great weekend of NFL action this will be!
