April 2022 Sports Calendar

[Get Exclusive Tips on our Patreon, Ad-Free

April is one of the biggest sports months of the year as we see the beginning of the MLB season and the start of the NBA Playoffs. We will have tips here on our regular schedule, but we will be posting tips nearly every day on Patreon. This month is also home to the greatest event in all of golf, The Masters.

The MLB season seemed like it might not have happened for a minute, but they managed to get a deal and things are getting started this month. It should be a competitive year with an expanded playoffs to look forward to. The Blue Jays are looking like a real threat in the American League while the Mets have made moves in the National League to put themselves in the conversation with the Dodgers, Braves, and Brewers.

The NBA Playoffs kick off this month and that is always an exciting time. This year’s Play-In tournament looks like it could be the best yet with the Nets and Lakers potentially involved. The Bucks, Sixers, and Heat should be the teams to watch in the East. While the Suns are the clear favorite in the West with the Grizzlies and Warriors looking to make some noise.

A lot of other sports this month as well, including F1, NASCAR, MLS, EPL, Champions League, WrestleMania, the final games of the NHL season, and more.
