The hope is that you were able to hit on some of your best bets this weekend, but it’s now time to transition to the weekend. With many different sporting events taking place, you should be able to find some great variety in the bets as well.
The action will start on Friday with a full slate of MLB games, and then you can look at some other sports over the weekend.
Here is a look at four of the weekend bets that you should consider making.
Cincinnati Reds vs. Chicago Cubs -1.5
You should kick off your weekend bets with a MLB matchup at Wrigley Field on Friday afternoon in Chicago. The Cubs are set to host the Cincinnati Reds to begin a three-game series, and these two NL Central Division rivals have had plenty of history.
Cincinnati is currently in last place in the Central Division, and they are expected to stay there throughout the season. The Reds are a team that has the ability to score some runs, but they also have a pitching staff that has struggled.
Chicago will have Justin Steele on the mound on Friday afternoon, and he has been one of the best pitchers in baseball this season. The Cubs have a powerful offense, and they should have a big game on offense in this one.
- Take the Cubs on the run line at -1.5 as they roll to a big win over the Cincinnati Reds.
St. Louis Cardinals vs. Cleveland Guardians -120
There is another MLB game to look at when making the best weekend bets as the Cleveland Guardians host the St. Louis Cardinals to begin a series. St. Louis has started to turn things around after a slow start, but there are still some flaws with this team.
Shane Bieber will be on the mound for the Guardians in this game, and he’s been terrific throughout the season for Cleveland. You shouldn’t expect St. Louis to do much scoring in this matchup, as that offense has had a tough time this season.
The moneyline is pretty tight for this matchup, as both teams should be pretty competitive.
- The biggest difference in this game will be on the mound, and that is why you should bet on the Guardians at -120 to come away with a win in this one.
Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat ML
There is an NBA game that you can include when making weekend bets, as the Eastern Conference Finals will continue on Saturday night. Miami looked as if they were going to run away and sweep this series, but the Celtics are back in it after winning two straight games.
Jayson Tatum has responded well after three tough games to begin the series, and there is now a ton of pressure on the Miami Heat at home. You can expect Jimmy Butler to step up, but the outcome of this game will depend on how well the Heat are able to shoot the basketball.
Boston is a slim 2.5-point betting favorite in this game, but they have been favored throughout the series. Miami is going to be looking to put this series away at home, and they have what it takes to get that done.
- Bet on the Miami Heat moneyline as they win Game 6 to advance to the NBA Finals.
Dallas Stars vs. Vegas Golden Knights -135
If you are looking to bet on sports when it comes to the NHL, then there is just one option left for this weekend. Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals is set to take place on Saturday night, and the Vegas Golden Knights host the Dallas Stars.
Dallas was able to win in Game 4 to extend the series for another game, and they will be trying to get the job done again on the road in Game 5. Vegas has been extremely impressive throughout the postseason, and they want to end this series and not be forced to go back on the road.
The Stars will be competitive in this game, but they aren’t going to be able to get the job done.
- Bet on the Vegas Golden Knights -135 to come away with a win in this game.
