Fans who will bet on UFC Fight Night 90 favor Roy ‘Big Country’ Nelson to win his fight versus Derrick ‘The Black Beast’ Lewis on Thursday, 7th July at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Don’t let his, uh, less than defined physique – or the fact that he’s also known as Cheeseburger and the True Burger King – fool you; Nelson has defeated the likes of Brendan Schaub, Matt Mitrione, Cheick Kongo, Stefan Struve, Mirko Cro Cop and Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira in the past. The UFC betting odds for his bout with Lewis are:
In 2007-08, Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge engineered the largest single-season turnaround in the history of the NBA – going from betting on basketball underdogs to league champions with a new Big Three of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Kevin Garnett. Ainge has been at it again recently, signing coach Brad Stephens (deemed one of the brightest young coaching minds) to replace Doc Rivers in 2013, and drafting Marcus Smart with the 6th overall pick in 2014, and trading Marcus Thornton to the Phoenix Suns in exchange for Isaiah Thomas in 2015. Thomas made his first All-Star appearance this past season, and averaged a career-high 22.2 points.
Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg is the auto racing betting favorite to win the Formula 1 Austrian Grand Prix on July 3rd, 2016 thanks to his dominant performance at the European Grand Prix in Baku, Azerbaijan. The German racer lead every lap – including fastest lap – from the pole position for his fifth victory of the season and second career Grand Slam – the first took place at the Russian Grand Prix, which coincidentally had been his last win of the 2016 campaign. Rosberg had, willingly or not, ceded the spotlight to his teammate Lewis Hamilton, especially in Monaco and Canada. But he came back with a vengeance to solidify his spot at the top of the standings with 141 points (Hamilton is second with 117).

Philadelphia 76ers fans who appreciate betting on basketball SBG Global sportsbook should be pretty happy that their team selected Australian Ben Simmons as the first pick in the first round of the 2016 NBA draft… or should they? According to NBA.com's Draft expert Scott Howard-Cooper, the more mature Brandon Ingram was the versatile scorer that the 76ers could have used after finishing 30th in offense in the league (96.6 points per 100 possessions). Additionally, Philadelphia picked French Timothe Luwawu (24th) and Turkish Furkan Korkmaz (26th), though Howard-Cooper predicted at least one of those picks would be traded or spent on a player who will stay overseas.

On the one hand, Lauzon has 13 post-fight bonuses, the second most in the history of the company (he also has the most Submission of the Night honors with six) – earning the Human Bonus Machine moniker; on the other, Sanchez has been in more Fight of the Year bouts than any other fighter in MMA – dating back to UFC 6 in 2006 against Karo Parisyan – as well as seven Fights of the Night. Here are the UFC betting odds for the match:
Fans of the Oklahoma City Thunder who enjoy betting on basketball at SBG Global sportsbook are hoping that the team’s 2016-17 season will be just like Darkman II and features the Return of Durant. Only in this case it will not be ruthless, sadistic mob boss Robert G. Durant but All Star small forward Kevin Durant. Along with Russell Westbrook, the Thunder has the most dominant duo in the league – though LeBron James and Kyrie Irving might take offense to that (while Kevin Love hides inside a locker so he doesn’t get traded). Steph Curry and Klay Thompson might take offense too, but then they would have lost all touch with reality.
