It’s Friday and if you’ve been paying attention you’ll know that we like to establish something of a gambling corner around these parts before we head into the weekend. Luckily, we’ve got a variety of options this weekend for the first time in a while.
We already touched on Bundesliga above, so let’s have a look at what else we can bet on this weekend and see where the value lies.
NASCAR:Ā So long, iRacing. NASCAR is returning to a real live track this weekend with a race at Darlington at 3:30 p.m. ET on Sunday. The running will end a two-month hiatus for the sport, and SportsLine’s Mike McClure (who scored major points with me by complimentingĀ my taste in Bon IverĀ last weekend) hasĀ delivered predictions via his projection model:
  1. Kyle Busch (5-1)
  2. Denny Hamlin (13-2)
  3. Brad Keselowski (8-1)
  4. Kevin Harvick (13-2)
  5. Martin Truex Jr. (15-2)
  6. Joey Logano (8-1)
  7. Erik Jones (14-1)
  8. Kurt Busch (22-1)
  9. Chase Elliott (10-1)
  10. Alex Bowman (14-1)
UFC:Ā We’ve got another UFC card with Fight Night on Saturday in Jacksonville, and SportsLine expert Kyle Marley hasĀ picked his winner in every bout. Here’s a handful of his biggest selections:
  1. Walt Harris (-165) vs. Alistair Overeem (+145): Overeem via submission
  2. Claudia Gadelha (-185) vs. Angela Hill (+165):Ā Gadelha via decision
  3. Edson Barboza (-130) vs. Dan Ige (+110):Ā Barboza via TKO
  4. Krzysztof Jotko (-155) vs. Eryk Anders (+135):Ā Jotko via decision
  5. Song Yadong (-185) vs. Marlon Vera (+165):Ā Yadong via decision
Golf:Ā It’s not “The Match” sequel just yet but we do have a big golf match play event this weekend withĀ Rory McIlroy and Dustin JohnsonĀ againstĀ Rickie Fowler and Matthew WolffĀ in theĀ 2020 TaylorMade Driving ReliefĀ skins event at Seminole Golf Club on Sunday. Sal Johnson has someĀ very insightful and in-depth analysis over on SportsLine.
  • McIlroy/Johnson are the overwhelming favorite at -210, with Fowler/Wolff at +180
  • Johnson is siding with McIlroy/Johnson to win straight-up, but he recommends keeping an eye on hole-by-hole bets as well as props as the event nears
Look at all that opportunity spread out in front of us! Isn’t it beautiful? Also, don’t forget about those late night KBO wagers. Here’s to hoping the Dinos can keep lining my pockets. If we can’t go out and party this weekend we may as well stay in, have a little fun watching sports and make some money in the process. I missed this, didn’t you?!
