Weekly Sports Betting Schedule for the week of June 8-12. Sports betting odds at the online sportsbook.
The NBA and NHL will be back in action by July. The same can’t be said for Major League Baseball with owners and the MLBPA still unable to come to an agreement on the length of the season or player compensation. A new proposal has been penned by owners which is to be expected to be in union reps hands as early as Monday. Initially, MLB wanted Spring Training 2 to begin by June 10 with July 4 the target date for Opening Day. The hope for that coming to fruition has diminished with the former date sneaking up quickly, and no agreement in sight. But fret not; there is still time to get this done. It will however be time to worry should the beginning of July roll around and nothing have changed. The PGA Tour, AFL and La Liga all return to action this week which should have online sportsbooks thrilled about the prospects of booking more action. It only gets even more exciting next week with the English Premiere League, Serie A and the Belmont Stakes all on the docket. Until then, here’s a look at the offerings for the workweek spanning June 8-12.
SOCCER BETTING ODDS
Though the EPL hasn’t returned just yet, there’s still a bevy of soccer matches to wager upon this upcoming week with other less popular leagues already back in action for a couple of weeks now. German Bundesliga betting action is light during the week with only one matchup locked in for Friday between TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig. Making up for it will be a 6-pack of matches on Saturday.
