Darts, table tennis, simulated games and esports got the betting public through some trying times. While we aren’t out of the COVID-19 woods yet, things are looking better with plenty of live sports to wager on this weekend.

UFC president Dana White took his bromance with President Trump to another level by staging three separate events over a one week span. The third takes place on Saturday with a matchup of top-10 heavyweights headlining the 11-bout ticket.

The PGA Tour plans to return in June and we’ll get a glimpse of a few pros smacking the ball around in a charity skins game.

And soccer fans are ecstatic that the Bundesliga raises the curtain on the resumption of its season. Online sportsbooks have the odds and are waiting for you to throw down this weekend.

UFC

Kudos to the state of Florida and the UFC for giving the finger to the coronavirus. After two months of sheltering in place the fighters took to the octagon in a series of events that proved the games can be played. UFC Fight Night, the third event in a week at the promotion’s temporary home in Jacksonville, takes place Saturday with 11 bouts scheduled. The main event features top-10 heavyweight contenders Alistair “The Demolition Man” Overeem against Walt “Big Ticket” Harris. The Big Ticket is undefeated in his last four fights and he spent a total of 62 seconds in the octagon last year. He’s a -145 favorite on the current odds at BookMaker.eu.

Women’s strawweight hopefuls Angela “Overkill” Hill and Claudia Gadelha duke it out in the co-main event. This marks Hill’s fifth fight in a calendar year and she’s coming off wins in the last three. Gadelha hasn’t been nearly as busy and this will be her first fight since an ankle injury put her on the shelf. Still, the Brazilian is listed at -220. The six-fight preliminary card gets underway at 6 p.m. ET followed by the main card at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Golf

With its built in physical distancing, golf is the ideal sport to start a revival. So why not chisel off some of the competitive rust in a charity skins game. That’s the plan on Sunday when Tour pros Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson take on Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff in the TaylorMade Driving Relief. Each team starts with half a mil in the bank with an additional $2 million at stake on the skins. All proceeds go to COVID-19 relief efforts.

McIlroy is the No. 1 ranked golfer in the world and D.J. is No. 5, so it isn’t alarming that they are favored at BookMaker.eu to win the most skins. Between them they have 38 PGA Tour wins. Fowler has nine professional wins and Wolff earned his maiden PGA Tour win last July, becoming the third golfer to win the NCAA individual title and a Tour event in the same year. The event takes place Sunday at the Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida, and will air on NBC.

Soccer

Germany’s Bundesliga will become the first major European soccer league to return to the pitch with resumption of the season on Saturday. Six matches are on the slate with an additional two scheduled for Sunday.

Other leagues across Europe are gearing up for a return in the next several weeks as well. They never stopped playing in Belarus with matches in the Vysshaya Liga and Belarus Cup continuing over the weekend. Matches from the top leagues in South Korea, Taiwan and Turkmenistan are also on tap. BookMaker.eu has all your wagering needs covered with odds posted for all the soccer games.

NASCAR

One of the fastest sports in the world came to a screeching halt because of the coronavirus. Now it’s time to start your engines because NASCAR is back this weekend with The Real Heroes 400 from Darlington Raceway.

With no practice or qualifying the starting lineup was determined by a random draw with Brad Keselowski getting the pole position for the first major race since March.

Sports Sims

A crutch for fans and online sportsbooks during the pandemic, simulated games will continue until the big four return. BookMaker.eu is keeping everyone interested by running sports sims from all the major sports.
