Two of the fastest rising lightweight fighters on the planet enter the octagon when Tony Ferguson takes on Michael Chiesa in Sioux Falls on July 13. A win for either fighter could result in a title shot at 155 lbs.

Ferguson – who enters the bout on a seven-fight winning streak – is a large -275 favorite with Chiesa coming back at +215 per Bovada.


UFC: Nelson vs Lewis Betting Odds

If you are looking for two big men to step inside the Octagon and throw bombs, then you will love watching Roy Nelson and Derrick Lewis do battle during International Fight Week. ‘Big Country’ has 13 career victories by way of TKO/KO while ‘The Black Beast’ has recorded 14 wins via knockout.

With both men being one punch away from victory, Nelson has opened as a -145 favorite with Lewis coming back at +115 per Bovada.


UFC 201: Johnson vs Reis Betting Odds

Demetrious Johnson continues his trek to completely empty out the flyweight division when he defends his title against Wilson Reis at UFC 201. ‘Mighty Mouse’ is the only champion the division has even known since its inception in January, 2013.

Johnson has opened as a ridiculously massive -1400 favorite with Reis coming back at +750.


Pens Looking to Win Cup Tonight at Home

Penguins Sharks NHL

Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final takes place tonight in Pittsburgh, and the Penguins will be looking to win their third Stanley Cup in franchise history. The home team has won three of the four games in the series so far, which follows suit with the history of this matchup, as the home team is 15-5 in the last 20 games between the Pens and Sharks.

After being the NHL’s top road team during the regular season, the Sharks are struggling outside of San Jose at the wrong time, going just 2-6 in their last eight road games. The Penguins haven’t been easy to beat in the Steel City lately, as they’ve gone 12-3 over their last 15 home games.

Pittsburgh opened the day as -167 favorites with San Jose coming back at +151. There’s a few odds-related trends working in the Sharks’ favor tonight, as they’ve gone 12-4 in their last 16 games as underdogs and are a perfect 7-0 in their last seven games after losing as a favorite.

If you have a feeling the Sharks can come back to win this series, you’re best off ignoring it. As mentioned in our recent futures update, teams who are up 3-1 in the Stanley Cup Final have won the series 30 straight times.

MLB’s Top Money Pitcher Starts Thursday

Josh Tomlin is not quite a name that comes to mind when you think of dominance, but there is no better word to describe him for bettors this season. Bettors would be up $769 if you backed Tomlin in each of his 10 starts this season – assuming you wagered $100 on each game. Tomlin will take to the mound once again when the Cleveland Indians visit the Seattle Mariners Thursday.

Tomlin has pitched well this season - with a 3.54 ERA - but it has been the run support that has made him an incredible bet. The Tribe has supplied Tomlin with 5.6 runs of support per game - which is among the top third in the MLB.

The Mariners will counter Tomlin by sending Nathan Karns to the bump. Karns has been a good fifth starter for the M’s this season, but he is coming off an outing in which he allowed eight hits and seven runs through just four innings.

Halos Hate Playing in the Bronx

The confines of Yankee Stadium have been anything but friendly to the Los Angeles Angels as of late. The Angels, who have dropped the first three of their four-game series with the Yanks in the Bronx, will be seeking to stop an eight-game skid on Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • The Angels are 1-4 in their last 5 games.
  • The UNDER is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings between the Yankees and Angels.
  • The OVER is 5-1-1 in the Angels' last 7 road games.

With a win today, the Yankees would improve to 24-8 in their last 32 games at home against the Halos. Newcomer Chris Parmalee has stepped up in a big way since joining the Bronx Bombers and hit two home runs in Wednesday’s 12-6 victory.

Jhoulys Chacin and Ivan Nova will get the start for the Angels and Yankees. Chain has a 3.73 ERA in five starts since being traded to the Angels last month, while Nova (4-3, 4.41) has lasted just six innings in each of his last four starts but has given up 13 runs in 18.5 innings over his last three outings.

PGA: Major Odds for Spieth & Day

Jason Day Jordan Spieth PGA

Anyone who hasn’t been living under a rock for the last few years could tell you the days of dominance by one man on the PGA Tour are long gone. Tiger Woods will forever be remembered as one of the best golfers to ever swing a club, but it’s quite clear his time of being a perennial contender is well in the rear-view mirror.


The Best Bars to Watch Soccer at in Vegas

Cristiano Ronaldo

With Euro 2016 set to kick off later this week, tourists with an affinity for soccer who are visiting Las Vegas will obviously not want to miss out on any of the action when in town. Believe it or not, Sin City has plenty of viewing options when it comes to seeing soccer matches. Some of the most popular bars are even within a short walking distance of Vegas sportsbooks, where you can easily throw down a wager before settling down to enjoy a pint of Guinness or Smithwick’s and watch your favorite team play.


NBA Finals: Exact Series Outcome Odds

Stephen Curry LeBron James

In the wake of an exhilarating semifinals, there was no shortage of storylines for the 2016 NBA Finals. The rematch. Curry vs. LeBron. Blue-collar Ohio vs. plush California. But after a pair of less than exciting opening games (to put it lightly), the championship series has been a complete flop so far.

After hammering Cleveland 104-89 in Game 1 and 110-77 in Game 2, the Warriors are on cruise control right now. To prepare for its conclusion, one online sportsbook is offering a prop special on the correct outcome of the series.


Warriors Top Second Half Team In Playoffs

Maybe you’ve noticed - the Golden State Warriors are pretty freakin’ good during the final 24 minutes of a basketball game.  

The Warriors are statistically the No. 1 second-half team in the NBA these playoffs, piling up an average of 54.6 points and they have a second-half plus-minus of 6.8. 

That second number is really the one that should interest halftime and in-game bettors. It means Golden State is three possessions better than the competition throughout the postseason which is leaving the competition in the dust.
