Wagering options at online sportsbooks are starting to increase with more sports getting up and running. Fans can say they are going to stadiums and arenas to protest since that seems to be an acceptable way to gather thousands of people without any repercussions from the “deadly” coronavirus. Political commentary aside let’s stick to sports since there is plenty of action ahead. NASCAR and UFC have been at it for a while and both are featured this weekend. There are 11 fights on the UFC Fight Night card with a women’s flyweight bout between Jessica Eye and Cynthia Calvillo the main event. NASCAR is in Florida for the Dixie Vodka 400. These are just a few of the wagering options available at online sportsbooks this busy weekend.

UFC

It’s back to the octagon on Saturday for UFC Fight Night: Eye vs. Calvillo. The main event on the 11-bout ticket is a women’s flyweight tussle between No. 1 ranked Jessica “Evil” Eye (15-1) and wannabe contender Cynthia Calvillo (8-1-1). Calvillo makes her UFC flyweight debut after missing weight in her last bout. A furious third round allowed Calvillo to earn a draw against Marina Rodriguez leaving her undefeated in her last three fights. Eye was destroyed by champ Valentina Shevchenko in a title fight last summer but bounced back with a unanimous decision over Viviane Araujo. Oddsmakers expect a close bout with Calvillo a negative odds underdog.

There should be fireworks in the co-main event. The middleweight bout between Marvin “The Italian Dream” Vettori (14-4-1) and Karl “Baby K” Roberson (9-2) has been scheduled a few times but never went off. Maybe this time the two can settle their differences. Vettori’s only loss in his last five fights was a split decision against current champ Israel Adesanya. Roberson shoots for his third straight victory. The prelims start at 6 p.m. ET with the main card at 9 p.m. ET with all fights on ESPN.
