With the Final Four, Miami Open, 15 NBA games, 22 NHL games, and 15 early MLB series, there are many online sports betting opportunities at BetMGM. Here are some notable events:
Saturday, April 1 | CBS | 6:09 p.m. ET
March Madness will begin its final act of 2023 this weekend with two national semifinal games on Saturday. No. 9 seed Florida Atlantic will play No. 5 seed San Diego State in the early game, which is scheduled to tip off on CBS at 6:09 p.m. EDT. In the late game, new championship favorite UConn (-125) will play Miami.
This has certainly been an NCAA Tournament for the ages, with a historic number of upsets throughout the first two weeks. Occasionally, college basketball will draw a Final Four without any No. 1 seeds, but a tournament without any top-three seeds has never happened before.
With the field now cleared of most of the top competition, UConn will be a popular pick to win the final two games and take home another national championship. Not only are the Huskies the highest remaining seed, but they’ve also won four national championships since 1999 — more than any other Division I team during that time.

Miami Open Championship Round
Saturday, April 1, and Sunday, April 2
The winter hardcourt season will reach its conclusion this weekend in the United States, when both the ATP and WTA tours conclude the Miami Open.
The women’s championship, which is played on Saturday, is the first of the singles championship matches. As a 1000-level event, Miami has attracted many of the top players in professional tennis, and they’ve really shown out so far.
In the top half of the draw, 2022 Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina won her quarter and advanced to play home-crowd favorite Jessica Pegula in the semifinal. In the bottom half, 2023 Australian Open champion Aryna Sabalenka lost her quarterfinal match to unseeded Romanian Sorana Cirstea.
In the men’s draw, which will play its championship match on Sunday, world No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz drew top American Taylor Fritz in his quarterfinal.
Philadelphia 76ers at Milwaukee Bucks
Sunday, April 2 | 8 p.m. ET
A major NBA showdown looms this weekend, as the 76ers head to Milwaukee for a fourth and final regular-season meeting between two key Eastern Conference competitors.
Milwaukee (+275) has assumed a healthy favorite status in the NBA championship odds market, with the 76ers (+1000) third in the pecking order in the east behind Boston. But some NBA analysts feel that Philadelphia may have a specific matchup advantage against the Bucks, with Joel Embiid’s physical style of play outmuscling the Bucks’ front court.
Philadelphia has won two straight games against Milwaukee, with Embiid scoring 30 points in both of those games.
The underdog has won all three of the games between Philadelphia and Milwaukee this season.
