Top 10 Events of the Week (November 26, 2012)

This week’s Top 10 Events of the Week are shaping up similar to last week. Half of the teams that made our Top 10 Thanksgiving week are ranking amongst the top again. However, the No. 1 spot belongs to a Conference Title Game that has BCS Championship implications.

With the cheapest SEC Championship tickets averaging 4-times higher than the cheapest Pac 12 Championship tickets and over 11-times higher than the cheapest Big 10 Championship tickets, the matchup against Alabama and Georgia Saturday at the Georgia Dome ranks No. 1 on our Top 10 Events of the Week.  Fans of the winning team will need BCS Championship tickets as they’ll likely play Notre Dame January 7th. Free shipping is available on any NCAA Football tickets in honor of Cyber Monday. Follow us on twitter (@Razorgator) to get that code and for more information.

For two straight weeks, the Chicago Bears made our Top 10 Events of the Week. Last week the Bears played a divisional matchup against the Vikings; this week they moved up four spots to No. 2 as they take on the Seattle Seahawks at Soldier Field Sunday. Chicago Bears vs. Seattle Seahawks tickets are the most expensive NFL tickets this week. Seattle is 1-5 when playing on the road this season but have a good resume against tough teams. Chicago could be without Matt Forte and need to keep winning to stay atop the NFC North. A chance to catch these two NFC teams will cost you at minimum $109.

For the second week in a row, the New York Knicks come in at No. 3. The Knicks will host the Washington Wizards and Phoenix Suns at home this week; New York Knicks vs. Washington Wizards tickets are averaging $250 for Friday’s game at Madison Square Garden and New York Knicks vs. Phoenix Suns tickets are averaging $264 for Sunday’s matchup. Los Angeles Lakers tickets for the remainder of the season are still averaging about a buck and a half more than New York Knicks tickets, making the Knicks the second highest ticket in the NBA (first this week). Will Knicks fans continue to watch their team score 100+ each game or will New York start to melo out? 

Last week, Miami Dolphins fans got to witness a game winning field goal when their Phins played the Seahawks. This week, Miami is up 6 spots to No. 4 where they’ll play the New England Patriots at Sun Life Stadium Sunday. On Dennis and Callahan, Tom Brady said the following about the Dolphins “They won a big game yesterday against Seattle, a team we lost to. It’s a team we always have a tough time with down in Florida. They’re athletic. They can rush the quarterback. Cameron Wake is one of the best players we’ll play all season.” Pretty much sums up the Phins strengths. The Dolphins look to make up some ground in their divisional race as they welcome an 8-3 Patriots team who hold the top spot in the AFC East. Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriot tickets start at $62.  

With two big home games this week against the San Antonio Spurs and Brooklyn Nets, last year’s NBA Championship team lands at No. 5 in our Top 10 Events of the Week. Tickets to the Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs game will cost you, on average, $159 per ticket. The Spurs currently have the most wins in the NBA with 11; the Heat with a similarly impressive 10-3 start. As we’ve mentioned before, the Heat boast the third highest ticket in the NBA (behind the Lakers and Knicks respectively). Miami Heat vs. Brooklyn Nets tickets are averaging slightly higher than Thursday’s game at $195. The last time these two teams met, the Heat ran away with a 103-73 convincing win.

Another team to make our Top 10 for consecutive weeks is the Dallas Cowboys; this week they are up one spot at No. 6. In another NFC East divisional matchup, the Cowboys will play the Philadelphia Eagles at Cowboys Stadium. The two teams competed against one another three weeks ago and Dallas was victorious in Philadelphia. Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles tickets start at $33 ($85 less than last week’s get-in price to Cowboys Stadium).

Coming in at No. 7 are the 10-1 Atlanta Falcons who will play NFC South opponent, the New Orleans Saints at the Georgia Dome. The Falcons one loss was handed to them by the Saints; so as you can imagine, Atlanta is ready for payback. Should Atlanta win this go around, they will solidify their top spot in the NFC South as well as a No. 1 playoff seed. Saints vs. Falcons tickets reach $377 but start at just $62.

On Saturday, Madison Square Garden will play host to another Top 10 event as Miguel Cotto fights Austin Trout for his WBA “Regular” Light Middleweight title. Miguel Cotto vs. Austin Trout tickets range from $37 – $1,295. Check out Sports Chat Place’s preview and who their writer predicts will win. 

The San Diego Chargers hold on to the No. 9 spot this week with a home game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Believe it or not, the Bengals are still a playoff contender, winning 3 straight against the Giants, Chiefs, and Raiders respectively. A seat in Qualcomm can cost you anywhere from $29 – $236 this weekend; Chargers vs. Bengals tickets averaging a reasonable $91.

The last spot in our Top 10 is occupied by a 4-7 New York Jets team who will face another 4-7 team, the Arizona Cardinals at MetLife Stadium. It’s possible that Jets fans are mainly interested in seeing Tebow play (Rex Ryan expects Tebow will be ready Sunday) Sunday; but the likelihood that Ryan will continue to place the ball in Sanchez’s hands seems far greater. 50 yard-line concourse 3 seats start at $48.
