NBA, MLB, UFC & Premier League Picks for May 7, 2021 | Odds Shark’s Guys & Bets (Episode 339)

Big weekend ahead in sports betting so the guys put together an array of their best bets to get you set for all the action.

The Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles are starting their third series of the season against each other today. The O’s swept the first three-game set and the Red Sox countered by sweeping the next three-game set. Joe isn’t betting on a full-game line or the total, he’s looking at an F5 moneyline bet. Matt Harvey has found a second life in his MLB career this season and he gets the nod for the Orioles.

Over to the Association as the New York Knicks are in the desert to face the Phoenix Suns. HOW ’BOUT THOSE NEW YORK KNICKS?!?! What a season it’s been in the Big Apple as the Knicks are relevant again. They sit fourth in the East, but they will have their hands full with the Suns. These are two of the hotter teams in the NBA at the moment with Phoenix winning 11 of its last 14 games and New York winning 12 of its last 14.

UFC Fight Night: Rodriguez vs Waterson from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas takes center stage on Saturday. Marina Rodriguez is a big betting favorite in this fight as the sixth-ranked contender in the women’s flyweight division. It’s a real opportunity to showcase her talents after a sluggish 3-1-2 start to her UFC career. Joe has a big plus-money bet lined up for this fight.

Ninja is heading to the Sunshine State for his opening bet. The Miami Marlins host the Milwaukee Brewers in the opening game of a three-game set. The Marlins are fresh off a sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks, outscoring them 20-4 in three games. The Marlins took two of three from the Brewers near the end of April, outscoring them 18-7.

On to the Premier League pitch which sees Brighton and Wolves matching up. This matchup has a tight history as these clubs have played to a draw in their last four matches against each other. Brighton has a slight edge on the season, scoring two more goals than Wolves while allowing seven fewer. With such an evenly contested past, Ninja has found a good spot for a plus-money bet.
