Betting The NBA and NHL Restart at America’s Bookie

Coming off the first weekend of MLB games since last season, bettors have a full slate of action to close out the month of July. Joining the restart of major betting sports, the NBA season will resume on Thursday, July 30 with a pair of interesting matchups.

Playing an eight-game regular season plus a full postseason run to the 2020 NBA title, all the games will take place at one location. The NBA Bubble in Orlando has been designed to keep players and coaches safe from the coronavirus.


The lack of any home court advantage will be interesting to navigate from a betting standpoint. For example, America’s Bookie has the Los Angeles Lakers listed as four-point favorites for Thursday night’s showdown against the Los Angeles Clippers. The total line for this game is set at 216 points.


As the most trusted online sportsbook catering to US bettors, America’s Bookie offers a full board of NBA betting options to help kickoff that league’s return to action. Looking ahead to the month of August, the NHL returns to the ice on Saturday, Aug. 1 with the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Points of Concern for the NBA Restart

The initial round of games in the NHL include a best-of-five qualifying series to determine which eight teams in each conference will advance to the opening round. The top four teams in the East and West will face one another in a round robin format for seeding purposes. The other eight teams in each conference will battle it out for the final four playoff spots.


There are two designated cities to host the games. Hockey bettors know that the West will play out the rest of the season in Edmonton while the East is situated in Toronto for all of its games. The highlight of Saturday’s schedule is Game 1 of a best-of-five series between the Montreal Canadiens and the Pittsburgh Penguins. America’s Bookie has opened the Penguins as -158 favorites with the total set at 5.5.

The first round robin game in the East pits the Philadelphia Flyers against Boston Bruins on Sunday, Aug. 2. Boston has been opened as a -133 favorite with the total set at 5.5.

With baseball, basketball and hockey back on the betting board at America’s Bookie, there will be more than enough action to make up for lost time. Every deposit into your online betting account comes with a matching bonus and there are low rollover requirements to earn your money.


Everyone is betting to win.

However, if things do not go your way over the course of a month, America’s Bookie will refund 10% of any net loss as part of its Gambler’s Insurance incentive.

This way you can still win even if you lose.

Do not forget to tell your family and friends about the best online book to bet the games. You can receive 10% of every deposit any of your direct referrals makes as part of this added promotional offer. These are important things to consider when looking for a new sportsbook.

The last four months have been tough for avid sports bettors but the long wait is finally over. The excitement of a short 60-game sprint to the MLB playoffs is matched with both NBA and NHL postseason play. The NFL is still on track to start a new season in early September. This is when America’s Bookie really becomes your go-to source for all the sports betting action you are looking for.
