The AFL season comes to a close this weekend with ArenaBowl XXI in New Orleans, while bettors will also have a full slate of baseball, Canadian football, WNBA, and NASCAR.
The San Jose SaberCats and Columbus Destroyers clash in Arena Bowl XXI at New Orleans Arena on Sunday. The SaberCats are a 6.5-point favorite in the game, but the Destroyers have plenty of experience with big upsets after winning all three of their playoff games so far as underdogs.
On the Canadian gridiron this weekend Week 5 of the CFL season continues. Friday night’s lone game sees Hamilton visit Winnipeg, while on Saturday Edmonton faces Saskatchewan and B.C. battles Calgary.
With August just around the corner playoff races are heating up throughout Major League Baseball. The top matchups to keep an eye on in the American League include a clash of division leaders in Detroit and Los Angeles, and division battles Minnesota at Cleveland and Oakland at Seattle.
Also on tap in the AL this weekend are the Yankees at Baltimore, Boston at Tampa Bay, Texas at Kansas City, and Toronto at the White Sox.
Over in the National League there are also a number of divisional faceoffs, including the Cubs at Cincinnati, Milwaukee at St. Louis, and the Dodgers at Colorado.
The rest of the NL schedule includes Florida at San Francisco, Atlanta at Arizona, San Diego at Houston, Washington at the Mets, and Pittsburgh at Philadelphia.
With the playoffs less than three weeks away they’re getting into crunch time in the WNBA. The weekend schedule tips off on Friday night with four games as Houston visits San Antonio, Phoenix travels to Chicago, Indiana invades Seattle, and Minnesota tries to snap their 10-game losing streak when they host Los Angeles.
Saturday’s schedule is much lighter with only one game as first-place Detroit takes on Washington. The lull ends on Sunday as there are six games on the schedule, with both conference leaders in action as Los Angeles visits Detroit and San Antonio takes on Seattle.
Also on Sunday there is Connecticut at New York, Houston at Chicago, Indiana at Phoenix, and Minnesota at Sacramento.
On the race track this weekend NASCAR returns to Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard.
Jimmie Johnson won at Indy last year, but points leader Jeff Gordon is the favorite at 6/1, followed by Tony Stewart, who’s coming off his first win of the season, at 7/1.
