Weekly Sports Recap & Update – May 23rd Edition

Every single weekend in the month of May has come with some great sporting events, and those have also led to some great betting opportunities. That trend is not going to end this weekend as there is a loaded slate of sports action coming. 

There will be some big playoff action coming in a couple of sports, and the MLB season will continue to heat up this weekend as well. Along with those games, you are also going to find some great action in some other unique sports. 

Here is a look at some of the top sports events for this weekend, and some things to watch when it comes to betting. 

Betting Action: Weekly Sports Recap & Updates


Indianapolis 500

The Indianapolis 500 is set to take place this weekend, and fans are going to be flocking to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. This is one of the biggest events of the year, and the action on the IndyCar Series has been great all season long. 

Cars are going to be zipping around the track at the IMS, and there could be some big crashes that impact the results this weekend as well. Betting odds have been set for this big race, and there is some value in making some predictions or picks on who will win. 

Scott McLaughlin is the favorite to win the Indianapolis 500, but there are other great drivers set to battle it out. Betting on the champion is one option, but you can also look to make predictions on the fastest lap or other props. 


Charles Schwab Challenge

The next stop on the PGA Tour will be the Charles Schwab Challenge and there is another loaded field of golfers ready to compete. Since Scottie Scheffler had to miss some earlier tournaments, he is going to be back in action this weekend. 

Scheffler has betting odds set at +275 to win this tournament, making him a heavy favorite to come away with a win. Collin Morikawa has the next best odds to win this tournament at +1200, but that shows that there is clearly a gap in the talent in this tournament. 

There will be a ton of value to explore when looking at the odds to win the Charles Schwab Challenge, and it’s best to bet on someone beyond Scheffler. 


NBA/NHL Conference Finals

The NBA and NHL Playoffs are really starting to get good as there are now just four teams left in each of the leagues. With the conference finals starting this week, each series is going to be shifting to a new location ahead of this weekend. 

The Boston Celtics remain big favorites to win the NBA Championship, while the Minnesota Timberwolves are expected to meet them there. Things are much harder to predict in the NHL as all four teams appear to be equal. 

Every single playoff game is going to come with some good betting opportunities, or you can also make some future predictions. Be sure to keep a close eye on the betting odds for each sport and be ready to strike.
