Both the Utah Jazz and Philadelphia 76ers will hope to take a huge step towards clinching their Conference Championship with wins over the Oklahoma City Thunder and Orlando 76ers respectively tonight.
Other games see the Washington Wizards trying to claim a Play In berth against the Cleveland Cavaliers while the Dallas Mavericks will aim to stay one win ahead of the LA Lakers, and in the playoffs rather than the Play In, when they take on the Toronto Raptors.
Top Major League Baseball Action
There’s plenty of top MLB action to enjoy on Friday too, starting with the earlier games as the Royals and White Sox clash, followed by the Giants and Pirates. The majority of matches take place later on in the day though with a number of huge games including the Rangers against the Astros, The Mets taking on the Rays, the Angels facing the Red Sox and the Marlins facing the Dodgers.

You can also find plenty of great golf action to enjoy a bet on at the AT&T Byron Nelson Classic, which will see the second round played throughout Friday. There will be plenty of great In Play betting available on players competing in the second round available to enjoy.
Soccer fans don’t have any MLS games to bet on across Friday, but there is an English Premier League game between Newcastle United and the new Champions, Manchester City.
