9:01 AM PACIFIC: UFC 262 COMING UP THIS WEEKEND

UFC 262 is on tap for this weekend and it’s going to be a thrilling card. The headline bout of the night will feature Charles Oliveira taking on Michael Chandler. Both are ranked No. 3 and No. 4 in the Lightweight rankings, respectively.

Tony Ferguson is also on the card as he’s looking to make amends for back-to-back losses. He fell short against Oliveira at UFC 256 and was knocked out by Justin Gaethje at UFC 249 before that. We’ll see if he can get back on track.

The Colorado Avalanche have a big game tonight with the Vegas Golden Knights and they’ll get a boost to the lineup just in time. Star forward Nathan MacKinninon is expected to play tonight after missing a couple of contests with a lower body injury.

The Avs are on a roll right now as they’ve won five of their last six games. They have three games remaining in their regular season as they’ll face the Los Angeles Kings twice after this. Tonight, Colorado is a small -120 favorite.

3:44 PM PACIFIC: DEGROM LANDS ON INJURED LIST

The New York Mets are going to be without ace Jacob DeGrom for the short term future as he has hit the injured list. Originally, there was greater concern that he might have a serious injury but it appears it’s just some tightness.

The Mets had a shaky start to the year as they were just 11-13 through 24 games. However, they have won each of their last five contests and are on a bit of a roll. Next up is a two-game series with the Baltimore Orioles, who are 15-19 on the year.

12:30 PM PACIFIC: TIM TEBOW IS BACK!

It’s been over 3000 days since we’ve seen Tim Tebow play in an NFL game but that could change very soon. The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed Tebow and play to employ him as a tight end. BetOnline will have a number of Tebow props in the coming days.

Tebow is joining the Jaguars as his former college football head coach Urban Meyer now leads the team. The Jags just drafted Trevor Lawrence with the first pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, so they aren’t expected to use Tebow at quarterback save for a few gadget plays.

9:51 AM PACIFIC: TOTAL FOR CHESTNUT HOT DOGS EATEN AT 2021 HOT DOG EATING COMPETITION SET AT 74.5

It seems like it’s a given that Joey Chestnut is going to win the 2021 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest (in July) but the odds have opened up on just how many hot dogs he’ll manage to scarf down. The over under is set at 74.5.

Chestnut is basically money in the bank at this event as he’s won in five straight years and 13 of the last 14. The lone miss was to Matt Stonie six years ago. As for the women, Miki Sudo has won seven straight years and her total is set at 45.5.

The WWE Raw women’s championship has been hotly contested over the last couple of years. Over the last three years, six different women have held the belt. Currently, Asuka is holding the title after winning it at SummerSlam in August.

BetOnline has posted odds on which woman will be holding the title at the end of the year. Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair are among the two favorites but Asuka is not far behind. In total, there are five wrestlers with odds of 6/1 or shorter.

3:49 PM PACIFIC: DUSTIN JOHNSON FAVORED TO WIN THE PGA CHAMPIONSHIP

Taking a look ahead to the futures for the 2021 golf season, Dustin Johnson has opened as the favorite to win the PGA Championship. Johnson did well in majors last season, winning The Masters (his first green jacket) and also placing sixth at the U.S. Open.

While Johnson is on the board at +900, Jon Rahm is second in line with odds of +1200. Rory McIlroy is right there with him with those same odds while Justin Thomas is next at +1400. Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau are the only other golfers inside of 20/1 and both are at +1600.

9:09 AM PACIFIC: QUICKLEY DOUBTFUL FOR SUNDAY’S KNICKS-CLIPPERS GAME

The New York Knicks look like they could be without stellar rookie Immanuel Quickley on Sunday when they take on the Los Angeles Clippers. He missed the team’s last contest and is now likely to miss consecutive games.

With Quickley out, that will put more pressure on Derrick Rose to deliver. He’s been playing well of late as he’s averaging 22.5 points per game over his last four contests. The Knicks have just four games remaining in their regular season after this one.

The 2021 regular season win total for all 32 NFL teams are up on the board. One thing to note for this year is that the regular season has increased to 17 games, so if you’re seeing some higher over-unders for the teams, that’s why.

The team with the highest number on the board is the Kansas City Chiefs, who are at 12.5. Right behind them are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are sitting right on 12. Meanwhile, the lowest number on the board is the Houston Texans, who are facing a win total of just 5.5.

Canelo Alvarez is back in action on Saturday night as he’s set to take on Billy Joe Saunders. Alvarez is one of the top boxers in the sport these days and is 55-1-2 in his career. The lone loss was to Floyd Mayweather Jr. back in 2013.

Although Alvarez has fought quite a bit, he’s still just 30 years old and is squarely in the prime of his career. He’ll take on Saunders, who is undefeated in his career to this point. However, Saunders hasn’t fought anyone of Alvarez’ caliber.

The Tampa Bay Rays and Oakland Athletics will meet on Saturday afternoon at 4:07 PM ET after playing a dramatic Friday night affair. The game was tied 1-1 in the bottom of the ninth before the A’s walked it off with a Seth Brown home run.

The Rays are a -140 favorite for this Saturday afternoon game as they’ll have Tyler Glasnow on the mound. The A’s are going to counter with Frankie Montas, who has a 7.71 ERA in his home outings this season.

There will be plenty of other intriguing bouts on the card, including the return of Donald Cerrone. Cowboy has hit a bit of a rough patch as he’s lost four in a row and is coming off a no-contest. He’ll take on Alex Morono on Saturday.

A lot of NFL futures are up on the board and that includes player props, like who’ll win the MVP next season. To no one’s surprise, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is favored to win as he’s on the board at +500.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is next at +900 while Buffalo Bills signal caller Josh Allen is third at +1000. Those are the only three players who are at 10/1 or shorter. Rodgers won the award last year and a quarterback has won the award every year since 2012.

5:02 PM PACIFIC: ANTHONY DAVIS PLANS TO PLAY ON FRIDAY

The Los Angeles Lakers continue to slip and slide down the standings in the Western Conference. On Friday, they’ll have a very important game with the Portland Trail Blazers – the team who they are tied with for sixth/seventh in the conference.

That’s important because the team that’s sixth makes the playoffs while the team that’s seventh has to go into a play-in tournament. The Lakers lost on Thursday to the Los Angeles Clippers as Anthony Davis had to leave the game early. However, he’s expected back on Friday to play against the Trail Blazers.

2:44 PM PACIFIC: JAYLEN BROWN OUT ON FRIDAY NIGHT

The Boston Celtics will be without one key cog on Friday night as Jaylen Brown will miss the contest with the Chicago Bulls. The Celtics have been playing well of late as they have won three of their last four contests overall.

The Bulls are 27-39 on the season but they are coming off a win. They beat the Charlotte Hornets on Thursday night but it was their first win in their last six games. We’ll see if they can keep momentum going on Friday against the Celtics.

The Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates will engage in the lone day game on Friday. First pitch goes at 2:20 PM ET as the Pirates will put Trevor Cahill on the mound while the Cubs will counter with Zach Davies as their starter.

Davies has been batted around this season as he has an ugly 8.22 ERA and a 2.13 WHIP. He’s given up 20 earned runs in just 19 innings of work. Cahill hasn’t been much better as he’s allowed 15 earned runs in 19 innings of work this season.

6:00 PM PACIFIC: MCHUGH-HEANEY MATCHUP IN LATE GAME

The last baseball game on the board will see the Tampa Bay Rays visit the Los Angeles Angels. First pitch for this contest will take place at 9:38 PM ET. The Angels are 13-16 on the year while the Rays are slightly better at 17-15.

Collin McHugh will be the Rays starter in this one and he hasn’t looked good in minimal work. Working as a reliever so far, he has given up eight earned runs in 5.1 innings of work. Meanwhile, Andrew Heaney has been up and down. He’s given up 11 earned runs in two starts but has given up just three earned runs in his other three outings.

One of the two evening games is the Miami Marlins-Arizona Diamondbacks showdown at 6:40 PM ET. The Diamondbacks will put Madison Bumgarner on the mound while the Marlins are going to counter with Pablo Lopez as their starter.

Lopez has pitched relatively well for the Marlins this year as he has a 2.34 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP but he hasn’t had much run support. The Marlins have lost four of the six times he’s been on the mound as they’ve scored just six runs in the four losses.

The action gets underway early with the Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers squaring off at 1:05 PM ET. It might be a bit of a pitcher’s duel as Zack Wheeler will take on Brandon Woodruff. The Brewers are a -120 favorite.

The Los Angeles Lakers have been in a bit of a funk of late. LeBron James made his return last Friday but is once again out as he’s clearly not 100%. The Lakers will have to live without him on Thursday night when they face the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Lakers are coming off a big win over the Denver Nuggets but prior to that, had lost three straight and six of seven. The Clippers are kind of in the same boat as they are coming off a win themselves but had lost three in a row before that.

The Los Angeles Angels will have star pitcher-hitter Shohei Ohtani on the mound on Wednesday when the team takes on the Tampa Bay Rays. He’s been impressive at the plate this season as he already has nine home runs and 22 RBI’s.

He’s also the team’s starting pitcher on Wednesday and he’s been pretty good in that regard. He gave up four earned runs in his latest outing but prior to that, had allowed just one earned run in his first two starts. We’ll see if he can get back on track.

3:44 PM PACIFIC: SOTO OUT AGAIN ON WEDNESDAY

If you’ve been thinking about betting the Washington Nationals on Wednesday, you should note that star Juan Soto will not be in the lineup again. He served as a pinch hitter on Tuesday but apparently isn’t quite ready for full-time duties.

The Nationals faced the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday and ended up losing 6-1 as their offense was muted. They’ll have to overcome the loss of Soto on Wednesday. He’s batting .294 on the season with two home runs and eight RBI’s.

John Means will take to the mound for the Orioles and he’s been money in the bank in terms of a betting perspective. On the year, the Orioles have won four of the six times that Means has been on the mound with the two losses coming in extra innings. His 1.70 ERA is fourth-best in the American League.

LaMelo Ball has long been favored to win the Rookie of the Year award but there was some trepidation after his wrist injury. Some felt that if he was out for the year, he might not be able to win the award due to missing so much time.

Ball is back, though, and he’s again the clear-cut favorite to win the award. He’s up on the board at -500 while Anthony Edwards is second in line at +350. Edwards has had a good year but Ball has been on another level. He’s also helped the Hornets improve while the Minnesota Timberwolves are still one of the worst teams in the league.

The Clippers are expected to get point guard Patrick Beverley back in the lineup after he missed the last 12 games. They’ll also have Kawhi Leonard as he goes up against his former team. The Clippers are posted as a 10-point favorite.

The Charlotte Hornets have lost three of their last four and will face some headwinds going into Tuesday. They’ll be without Miles Bridges and P.J. Washington tonight as they face the Detroit Pistons. Even so, the Hornets are a three-point road favorite.

The Hornets were 27-24 and appeared to be a young team on the rise but since then, they have dropped nine of their last 13 games. The good news is the Pistons are one of the worst teams in the NBA and have lost 10 of their last 13 contests.

The Dodgers will send Clayton Kershaw to the mound while the Cubs will counter with Kyle Hendricks. Hendricks has struggled against the Atlanta Braves this season (in two meetings) but has given up just five earned runs in his other 15 innings pitched across three starts.

The Green Bay Packers were in the spotlight at the 2021 NFL Draft as rumors circulated that the team was set to trade away star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. At the time, all Packers futures took a hit as it looked like they were in for some big changes.

As of now, the Packers don’t plan on trading Rodgers – at least that’s what they’ve publicly said – and that’s allowed futures to reopen. The Packers went from -250 to win the NFC North but are now down to -120 for the time being.

There are a couple of 10 PM ET games on the board tonight in the NBA and one of them will feature the San Antonio Spurs visiting the Utah Jazz. There are a lot of eyes on the Jazz these days as the team appears to be scuffling as the playoffs approach.

The Jazz started the year with 24 wins in their first 29 games but are just 8-7 in their last 15 games. The Jazz have failed to cover the spread in eight of their last 11 contests. Meanwhile, their opponent, the San Antonio Spurs, has covered in seven of their last nine.

The Penguins haven’t really missed him much as they’ve been one of the hotter teams in the NHL of late. They’ve won two straight and six of seven. Monday marks the start of a home-and-home set with the Philadelphia Flyers as the two teams will also square off on Tuesday.

The Lakers are currently the No. 6 seed and are just one game out of seventh, but they are still favored to win the conference at +190. The Los Angeles Clippers are second in line at +275 while the Utah Jazz are at +375. The West-leading Phoenix Suns lag behind at +575.

The Celtics are coming off an incredible win as they trailed the San Antonio Spurs by 32 in their last outing but managed to come back. Jayson Tatum was incredible as he dropped 60 on the Spurs in the overtime comeback. He’ll need another big game if the Celtics are to win tonight.

Essential Quality is favored to win the Derby at +250 followed by Rock Your World (+500). After that, it’s Known Agenda (+750) and Hot Rod Charlie (+800) who are next in line. Bet all of the Saturday races from the link below.
