MANCHESTER, U.K. – Today’s daily sports betting preview takes a break from the new normal, which has been esports and table tennis, to bring its readers some MMA action and some Australian League soccer action.

For MMA, Cage Warriors 113 is proceeding as scheduled, with all of the participants being screened for COVID-19 symptoms.

In soccer, the Australian A-League is back for the foreseeable future, and you can already bet on many of the matches that will be played in that illustrious competition.

Cage Warriors 113 MMA Betting Preview

Cage Warriors 113 will be broadcast live from Manchester, England, as the famous mixed martial arts promotion – Europe’s longest running MMA promotion – brings the 113th installment of its fighting to the masses.

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, fights have been hard to come by for fans of the sport and fans of MMA betting alike, and the return of Cage Warriors is a welcome break from the monotony of limited sporting event offerings.

The main event of the Cage Warriors 113 card is Darren Stewart vs. Bartosz Fabinski – both of whom actually fight for the UFC, so those familiar with UFC Betting might be familiar with them already.

Their match was bumped off of a canceled UFC card set to be in London, and the two of them have chosen to fight it out here instead.

Stewart is a notable favorite over Fabinski, with -250 odds to win, while Fabinski has +195 odds to win.

There is a title fight on the card as well. The Cage Warriors Lightweight title is available, and the bout to win it features the largest underdog of the night.

The two fighters who are attempting to claim the Lightweight belt are Joe McColgan and Mason Jones.

Jones, tonight’s largest favorite, is one of the better fighters in the promotion and is favored to win the match by a whopping -550 odds.

McColgan, on the other hand, enters this match as an enormous underdog with +375 odds to win the belt.

For MMA fans and online sportsbooks around the world, the return of Cage Warriors should bring some much needed distraction from the outside world – a breath of fresh air in the midst of the pandemic.

Australia A-League Soccer Betting Preview

MMA is not the only familiar sport that has overseas options still running. Australia’s A-League is set to resume play.

The first match will be between Western Sydney Wanderers FC and Sydney FC, and will be played at 4:30 a.m. EST, on Saturday, March 20, 2020 – which means the time to bet on it, for USA-based sports bettors, is on Friday.

Western Sydney Wanderers are underdogs in this match, but not by too much. They have +245 odds to win it outright, and a +0.5 goal spread that itself has -130 odds.

Sydney FC, on the other hand, enters as favorites but not as significant ones. They have +110 odds to win the match outright and their spread of -0.5 has +105 odds.

A draw has +250 odds to occur – only slightly higher odds than Western Sydney winning outright.

The Over/Under line for the match is set at 2.5 goals. However, there is significant shading towards the Over 2.5, which has -140 odds, while the Under 2.5 only has +110 odds.

All of this taken together tells smart bettors that the sportsbooks expect the game to be some amount of high scoring relative to expectations. They also expect that a draw and/or a Wanderers victory will occur roughly a similar amount of the time, combined, as a Sydney FC victory.

This dynamic makes this game a very interesting one to bet on, and it should serve as an excellent challenge to all of the soccer bettors out there, who are lucky to have such a unique opportunity in this time of crisis.
