Daily Sports Betting Preview: Invicta FC 55, Dodgers v Giants, South Africa v India 06/28/2024

  • Talita Bernardo vs Olga Rubin in Invicta FC 55 lead off the late-night Friday betting action.
  • The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants begin two hours later in a pick em.
  • Saturday morning's T20 World Cup cricket match between South Africa and India is the best to wake up to.

DALLAS – Whether it was payday or not this Friday, there are plenty of betting odds available, but this sports betting preview for June 28 focuses on MMA, MLB, and cricket.

At 8 p.m. ET, the main event for Invicta FC 55 takes place, where Talita Bernardo is a -165 odds favorite over Olga Rubin. Projected to go the distance, the fight may be leaning too much toward Bernardo.

Rubin has only been knocked out in two fights (of 12) and going the distance is her way. With five victories by decision, all but one has been unanimous in her career.

Bernardo certainly has the ground advantage with six of her 10 victories coming by this method. Four of those were first-round victories pre-2017, but has two under her belt in Invicta as well.

Either way, the best bet for us is over 4.5 rounds at -165 odds.

Dodgers vs Giants

If the odds stand, this will be the first time since 2016 that the Dodgers are underdogs on the road vs the Giants. Despite being an old trend, the Dodgers are 2-8 overall from 2013-2016 in this situation.

Regardless, the Dodgers have seen themselves as close road dogs a few times this season.

Date Opponent Dodgers ML Score
June 24 White Sox -115 3-0
June 8 Yankees -105 11-3
June 5 Pirates +100 6-10
May 28 Mets -115 10-3

With big scoring in three of the four, looking for a "yes run first inning" (YRFI) is the play here.

T20 Cricket

Don't forget that cricket starts Saturday morning, and those on the West Coast might not be up in time for it (10:30 a.m. ET).

With this, it's best to take your MMA betting winnings and reinvest them into cricket.

Both teams are favored to score 150+ runs (-300) but India is given the nod on the moneyline.

Still, at 1:2 odds (-200), it's a tough ask to get behind. While they probably come out victorious, it may be easier to find live betting odds that are closer to -160.

India is expected to be at 24 runs at the fall of the 1st wicket while RSA is around 19. If this comes to be closer, those t20 cricket betting odds should be much closer.
