Major sports are in full swing once again. We break down the complete schedule for Saturday, August 8th.

Sports is back in full swing, and the Covid-19 delays have resulted in more sports than normal at this point. Once football returns in September, the schedule will go from crazy to absolutely ridiculous.

Here’s a look at what today’s television schedule looks like for North American sports plus UEFA Champions League. It starts at 11:10 a.m. ET with the main UFC Fight Night card starting at 9 p.m. We’ve separated out the baseball schedule because of the sheer volume of it.

Picture-in-picture and multiple televisions and computer screens can let the most die-hard of sports fans watch just about everything on this schedule, but you might need to pick and choose depending on your screen and/or work day limitations.

The heavy block comes a 3 p.m. We get what could be a fun WNBA matchup between a surging Mercury team against the Storm, a key NHL Western Conference matchup between the Golden Knights and Avalanche for the top seed, and the second leg of the two remaining UEFA Champions League Round of 16 matches. I’d put the hockey game as the lowest priority, with Munich vs. Chelsea right near it given the 3-0 Munich first leg score. If Chelsea gets hot in the first half, then maybe the second half will be worth a watch.

There is plenty of action all day and into the evening, so feel free to bet at DraftKings Sportsbook or enter your DFS lineups. All times below are Eastern Time.
