What to Bet on This Weekend

We’ve got another busy weekend on tap in the sports world. While we don’t quite have the fanfare of UFC 276, we do have a UFC on ESPN card, as well as NASCAR in the U.S. and F1 across the pond.

UFC Vegas 58: dos Anjos vs. Fiziev

Rafael dos Anjos has had quite the storied career and he’ll look for his third straight win in the main event against Rafael Fiziev. Fiziev is 11-1 overall and 5-1 in the UFC, but RDA is a big step up in class from the past opponents he’s had. There are 12 fights total on the slate and some exciting up-and-coming prospects.
