What You Can Bet On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday – May 8th Edition

Written by on May 8, 2020

On Saturday, we get a normal return to sports. Basketball, baseball, and hockey remain shelved. But Ultimate Fighting Championships runs a promotion. We’ll take what we can get as far as real sports are concerned. Also, there’s horse racing, sports simulations, and future betting on golf and the NFL. Check out on what we can wager on this weekend!

What You Can Bet On May 8th – May 10th

UFC 249 on May 9

A couple of weeks ago UFC President Dana White said anybody who wants to fight, can fight. White was true to his word. On May 9, UFC 249 takes place with 12 total bouts. The main card includes 5 bouts.

2-of-5 bouts are championship battles. In the co-main event, Dominick Cruz takes on Henry Cejudo. Cruz hasn’t fought since 2016. Dominick is a legend, though.

Then in the main event Justin Gaethje hopes to rid Tony Ferguson of his championship belt. Gaethje said he’s making life hell for Ferguson. We shall see!

Don’t rest on your laurels after Saturday. If you’re a combat sports fan, White and UFC want to entertain you this May. After the bouts on May 9, you must wait just 4 days for another UFC promotion.

UFC Fight Night Smith vs. Texeira happens on May 13. Then on May 16, just 7 days from Saturday, UFC Fight Night Overeem vs. Harris happens.

That’s 3 Ultimate Fighting Championship promotions in the span of 7 days. Does it get any better if you’re into mixed-martial arts? See all the UFC 249 Odds for these.

Gulfstream Park and Tampa Bay Downs Horse Racing

NFL Futures after schedule release

On Thursday night, the NFL released their 2020 schedule. It’s the perfect time to make future wagers. So far, the National Football League hasn’t said anything about a delay.

As the U.S. continues to reopen, the NFL should follow suit.
