Welcome back, crypto sports fans!
This is the week when Formula 1 comes back to The Strip of Las Vegas. What an experience the fans will have at this unique sporting event. The build-up around the race looks fantastic as you can see in the image below and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t jealous of anyone who will be in the stands this weekend.
Mixed Bag of Wins and Losses
Not a week goes by without the emotional roller coaster that comes with sports betting. Last week brought mixed results with last second NFL field goals against all my 3 picks, UFC knockouts and NHL upsets. Win or lose, the world of sports doesn’t stop and the all-you-can-eat buffet of betting opportunities continues and another week full of action awaits.
1) NHL Global Series
As part of this year’s NHL Global Series, the league has sent four teams to Stockholm, Sweden, this weekend. Detroit Red Wings, Minnesota Wild, Ottawa Senators and the Toronto Maple Leafs are playing four games in four days.
While the Red Wings has looked rejuvenated and is off to a hot start, life in Ottawa has been chaotic. These games in Sweden will also be harder to predict as you are now dealing with a long flight, time change, and potential jet lag. The teams have had a few days to figure things out but you never know how it will impact their performance.
Ottawa Senators vs Detroit Red Wings (November 16)
The first game is later today and it’s the only one open for bets so far. I decided to lay down some different bets on this game instead of just picking the winner. The Senators are slight favorites and want to get back in the playoff-race as soon as possible. My gut is telling me the Red Wings might steal this first game though and get two points before the tough battle with the Maple Leafs tomorrow.
Based on the odds at Stake, my 3 bets for Ottawa Senators vs Detroit Red Wings are:
Ottawa vs Detroit Winner (incl Overtime & Penalties)
🏒 My Pick – Detroit Red Wings 🏒
Detroit Red Wings Total Goals
🏒 My Pick – Over 3.5 Goals 🏒
First Period – Both Teams to Score
🏒 My Pick – Yes 🏒
Total Payout – €200
Putting down €20 on these bets has the odds of 9.99x and will pay out €200.
2) NFL Week 11
The big game this week is of course the repeat of the last Super Bowl between the Chiefs and the Eagles. There are so many stories surrounding this game and I think it’s going to be a great one, especially since both teams just happened to have a bye week last week.
Mr Taylor Swift vs Sexiest Man Alive
We’ve got the mighty popular Kelce brothers going head to head once again and while Travis made his way down to Buenos Aires to see his girlfriend Taylor Swift, Jason landed a spot as a finalist for People’s prestigious “Sexiest Man Alive” award. Long flights might not be the preferred way of taking care of your body during your week off so let’s see what version of Nr 85 we’ll see on Sunday.
It’s an incredibly difficult game to pick a winner and I believe these are the top two teams in the league once again.
Eagles Looking for Vengeance
The game is in Kansas City and the Chiefs are expected to come out on top. However, I think the Eagles are coming in looking for vengeance and to set the tone, as there’s a big chance the two will be playing against each other again in the next Super Bowl.
Also, is it a sign that Sportsbet.io has the same colors as the Eagles?
🏈 My Pick – Philadelphia Eagles 🏈
🏈 My Pick – Detroit Lions 🏈
🏈 My Pick – Houston Texans 🏈
Total Payout – €81
Putting down €20 on these bets has the odds of 4.06x and will pay out €81.
3) EURO 2024 Qualifications
All the big football leagues (Premier League, La Liga, Serie A etc) are on break right now due to another round of the Euro 2024 qualifications. Erling Haaland and the rest of the stars are trying to get their respective countries into next year’s festivities.
I’ve Picked 5 Winners
You can see which teams have already qualified in the image above but I’ve picked out some winners for this weekend. The five winners picked just happen to be favored by a pretty big margin but still… they should be able to make you some money.
⚽ My Picks – Denmark, England & Italy ⚽
⚽ My Picks – Netherlands & Switzerland ⚽
Total Payout – €56
Putting down €20 on these bets has the odds of 2.78x and will pay out €55.60.

Hopefully I managed to help you figure out some bets for the weekend because the options are endless. Betting live during the games is a very popular way of betting and it can be very exciting, so if you’re watching sports with your buddies, it might be worth considering.
I can’t wait to see how my picks are doing this week.
