Lionel Messi Expected To Join PSG

At this point, it seems the only realistic options are PSG, Man City, and Chelsea, just from a financial standpoint.

Olympic Basketball Gold Medal: USA vs France

Team USA are listed as a monster favorite against France for the Olympic gold medal in basketball. The USA are -900 on the moneyline and are favored by 12 points. However, the best bet of the game could very well be on the total.

USA vs France Total Odds

  • Over 175.5 -110
  • Under 175.5 -110

Those that are betting on the Olympics should take note of the many signs pointing towards the Under.

MLB Betting: Toronto Blue Jays vs Boston Red Sox

The Toronto Blue Jays will host the Boston Red Sox on Friday night. The Blue Jays will take the field as the favorites but could be deserving of shorter odds. Alex Manoah will pitch for Toronto and Manoah has a 2.47 ERA and 0.97 WHIP on the mound this season.

Blue Jays vs Red Sox Moneyline Odds

  • Toronto Blue Jays -135
  • Boston Red Sox +115

Toronto has had one of the best offenses in the MLB over the past month, ranking fourth in wOBA (.342), second in SLG (.475), second in ISO (.211), and second in wRC+ (116). A pitcher this good and an offense this hot makes for a great MLB betting opportunity.
