Weekend sports events
Headed by Kentucky Derby winner Orb and Preakness winner Oxbow, the final leg of the Triple Crown will be held on Saturday at Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y.
Orb comes into the race with five wins in nine starts for owners Ogden Mills “Dinny” Phipps and Stuart Janney III, and it’s the 3-1 line favorite at the sports betting lines to win the third and final stop in horse racing’s Triple Crown.
On the other hand, Oxbow’s Preakness win was just his third win in 11 starts for Calumet Farm and owns 5-1 odds to win the 145th Belmont Stakes. Freedom Child at 17/2 and Unlimited Budget at 10/1 are the other contenders near to the top.
For this weekend, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum will meet in Saturday’s UFC on Fuel TV 10 main event, which takes place at Paulo Sarasate Arena, in Fortaleza, Brazil.
Werdum is one of the top contenders in the heavyweight division, while Nogueira was one of the heroes of UFC 153. The last time they met was at the PRIDE ring in 2006 and Nogueira was the winner, claiming his 28th career win by way of unanimous decision.
However, it seems that everything has change in the last years since Nogueira’s memorable career appears to be ending, while Werdum has become a bigger threat and the betting odds have Werdum as the favorite at -320 to win Saturday’s fight.
The San Antonio Spurs won Game 1 of the NBA finals with a 92-88 win over LeBron James and the Miami Heat. Tony Parker became the hero of the game when he managed to hit a shot that dropped in with 5.2 seconds remaining, and gave the victory to the Spurs.
Parker led San Antonio with 21 points and six assists, while LeBron James had a triple-double, 18 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists. For their part, Dwayne Wade had 17 points and Chris Bosh had 13 points.
Game 2 is Sunday at 8 p.m. ET at the American Airlines Arena, and defending champion Miami is listed as the favorite to win the NBA Championship at odds of 1/3, while San Antonio is listed at 7/2.
The Chicago Blackhawks are leading the series by 3-1 against Los Angeles Kings. The Blackhawks need only one more win to defeat the defending Stanley Cup champions Los Angeles, and to advance to its second Stanley Cup Final since 1992.
Game 5 will be on Saturday June 8th at the United Center, Chicago, and the Blackhawks are listed as favorites at -145 to be at the Stanley Cup Finals, while the Kings are at +125.
On the other hand, the Boston Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins will play this Friday at TD Garden in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final. The Bruins are the favorites for tonight’s game at -125 on the betting lines and the Penguins’ fans must consider that only three teams in NHL playoff history have ever rallied from a 3-0 series deficit.
