OKBET Basketball Betting, after some confusion over whether the 2021 PBA Governors’ Cup would be completed or abandoned in favor of prepping for the 2022 PBA season, the popular Philippine basketball conference has been permitted to begin as scheduled, much to the satisfaction of Philippine OKBET Online Sports Bettors Worldwide.

The tournament framework has not been altered much, import players remain in the nation, and the games continue as scheduled at OKBET Basketball Betting.

However, one little alteration was unavoidable:

All Governors’ Cup games will be played in the Ynares Center in Antipolo, Rizal, from February 23 to February 27. When the Governors’ Cup resumed on February 11, games were held in the Big Dome (aka Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City) at OKBET Basketball Betting, however that stadium is now hosting qualifications for the 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup. Which, of course, you can wager on right now at the finest online sportsbooks in the Philippines (see below). In the PBA, though, the Governors’ Cup elimination stage is about two-thirds complete, with most teams having played eight or so of their 11 scheduled games.

The following are the 2021 PBA Governors’ Cup rankings as of Wednesday, February 23:

  • Magnolia Hotshots are undefeated
  • 5-1 Meralco Bolts
  • 6-3 NLEX Road Warriors
  • 5-3 Alaska Aces
  • 5-3 San Miguel Beermen
  • 4-4 in the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters
  • Tropang Giga TNT: 4-4
  • 3-4 Barangay Ginebra San Miguel
  • 3-5 Elasto Painters: Rain or Shine
  • 2-5 Terrafirma Dyip
  • 1-5 NorthPort Batang Pier
  • 0-7 for Blackwater Bossing

Only the Hotshots and Road Warriors have qualified for the 2021 Governors’ Cup quarterfinals thus far, while their precise seeding is unknown.

Although no team has been officially eliminated, it seems that the final two teams above – NorthPort Batang Pier and Blackwater Bossing – are unlikely to make large enough advances on their opponents to go over the eighth-place cutoff limit.

Interestingly, OKBET Sportsbook, which has long been our top pick for legal online sports betting in the Philippines, has just recently begun giving PBA betting odds, and they have lines on both of tomorrow’s games:

Odds for the 2021 PBA Governors’ Cup – Thursday, February 24, 2022

  • Meralco Bolts vs. Mahindra Enforcers*
  • Meralco Bolts -9.5 spread
  • Meralco Bolts -582, Mahindra Enforcers +442.
  • 5 points total
  • Global Port Batang Pier vs. Magnolia Hotshots*
  • Magnolia Hotshots -10.5 point spread
  • Magnolia Hotshots -600, Global Port Batang Pier +450
  • 5 points total

Interestingly, BetOnline has Terrafirma Dyip labeled as the “Mahindra Enforcers,” the team’s previous moniker from 2015-2016. The same is true for NorthPort Batang Pier, which BetOnline has dubbed “Global Port Batang Pier.” From 2012 until 2018, the team was known as Global Port.

As you can see, OKBET hasn’t given PBA odds in quite some time. Naturally, the PBA isn’t the only local basketball betting possibility available this weekend. As previously noted, the Big Dome in Quezon City is one of the sites for the 2023 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers, which begin this Thursday.

Unfortunately, the FIBA game between South Korea and the Philippines, which was also scheduled for tomorrow in Quezon City, has been canceled due to Team Korea’s COVID-related withdrawal.

Of course, OKBET Basketball Betting provides odds for all of the remaining FIBA games on the schedule:
