After weeks of relative quiet, we have a somehwat busy sports weekend ahead with both UFC 249 and WWE Money in the Bank taking place this weekend.

The UFC card will be headlined by Tony Ferguson vs. Justin Geathje for the Lightweight interim title. The show will also feature Henry Cejudo vs. Dominick Cruz for the Bantamweight title, Francis Ngannou vs. Jairzinho Rozenstruik, Jeremey Stephens vs. Calvin Kattar, and Greg Hardy vs. Yorgan De Castro. A pretty stacked card in Jacksonville and as always we’ll have some tips up for it later this week.

Sunday will see WWE’s annual Money in the Bank event. This is going to be a weird one with the Money in the Bank ladder matches taking place at WWE’s headquarters in Connecticut. The wrestlers will start on the main floor and then head their way up to the roof where a ring will be set-up, just in case you thought this product might resemble sports in anyway. Maybe UFC should do the same thing for UFC 249.

The show will also feature a WWE Championship match with Drew McIntyre vs. Seth Rollins, a WWE Universal Championship match between Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt, a Smackdown Women’s Championship match with Bayley vs. Tamina, and a 4-way Smackdown Tag Team Championship match with The New Day vs. The Forgotten Sons vs. The Miz & John Morrison vs. Lucha House Party.

We’ll have tips for this up this weekend as well and we’ll also be doing an episode of the Going Over: Bet Pro Wrestling Podcast about the show. Make sure you subscribe to that in your podcast app so that you can get the episode right when it drops.

We’ll have that all covered over the next couple of days and this weekend. As for today, we are going to be betting on some esports and also taking our first foray into NBA 2k20 twitch streams. Should be fun, let’s make some money.

NBA 2K20 Sims Betting Tips:

You can watch this one at tonight at 7:00 Eastern time.

2005-06 Miami Heat vs. 97-98 Utah Jazz: A nice historic match-up here with the Shaquille O’Neal and Dwyane Wade Heat taking on the Karl Malone and John Stockton lead Jazz. The Heat are a favorite here and I’m all over them. I don’t see anyone on this Jazz team that can match the athleticism of Wade and there is no one on the Jazz team that will have a shot at stopping Shaq. Greg Ostertag? I don’t think so.

Bet Miami Heat -3.5

CS:GO ESL One Road to Rio Betting Tips:

Chiefs Esports Club vs. Ground Zero: This is the closest moneyline match-up of the day and yet the over on games is one of the best values on the board. I am not quite sure why. I really think this one is going to go three games with it being close all the way through. Good value here and worth a bet.

Bet Chiefs Esports Club/Ground Zero Over 2.5 (+105)
