Dana White’s Contender Series: Diego Lopes Vs. Joanderson Brito

Diego Lopes and Joanderson Brito will be the first fight on the return of Dana White’s Contender Series on Tuesday. Both fighters have a respectable record and online sportsbooks are viewing this fight as a near pick ‘em.

Lopes Vs. Brito Moneyline Odds

  • Diego Lopes -120
  • Joanderson Brito -110

Lopes is 19-3 in his career as a professional while Brito is 11-2-1. Those betting on the UFC should note that this will be Brito’s first fight in over two years as he has been out of the game since May of 2019. Both fighters will be looking for a submission, but since there are near even odds for them, it may be smart to side with Lopes as he's been the more active fighter.

US Open Odds: Novak Djokovic Vs. Holder Rune

Novak Djokovic is the overwhelming favorite to win the entire US Open, so it’ll be no surprise to find that tennis betting sites have him as an incredibly large favorite against Holger Rune in the opening round.

Djokovic Vs. Rune Set Betting

  • Djokovic 3-0 -325
  • Djokovic 3-1 +295
  • Djokovic 3-2 +1300

Djokovic is -5000 on the moneyline, but there’s more value on betting the exact set score. As the top-ranked player in the world, Djokovic should be able to cruise through this first round with no real threat, even if he does drop a set it likely won’t be worrisome.

MLB Betting: Colorado Rockies Vs. Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers are looking better as they are no longer the worst offensive team in baseball, however, they still are borderline bottom 10 in every major statistical category. Despite their improvement, the team is still outmatched against the Colorado Rockies.

Rockies Vs. Rangers Moneyline Odds

  • Colorado Rockies -133
  • Texas Rangers +113

The Rockies have the highest wOBA in the MLB over the last 30 days and are also second in SLG and BA. Plus, Colorado has an apparent pitching advantage as Austin Gomber (9-8, 4.38 ERA, 1.20 WHIP) is matched up with Jordan Lyles (6-11, 5.70 ERA, 1.49 WHIP). The only thing that happened by the Rangers hitting the ball a little bit better is allowing MLB betting fans to get their opponents at a better price.
