BetAnySports Weekend Betting Preview – May 5-7

By Dave Schwab

From playoff action in both the NBA and the NHL to ‘The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports’ with the running of the 143rd Kentucky Derby, the first weekend in May offers up some great sports betting action right across the board at BetAnySports.

One of the top MLB series on the slate this weekend is a three-game set between the New York Mets and the Chicago Cubs with Game 3 the featured matchup on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball at 8 p.m. (ET). There is also a wide array of betting lines on the board at BetAnySports for this weekend’s action in boxing and MMA fighting including Saturday night’s big bout in Las Vegas between Canelo Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. with Alvarez listed as a heavy -620 favorite. NASCAR bettors will be turning their attention to Talladega Superspeedway this Sunday for the running of the Geico 500.

The best-of-seven conference semifinals round of the NBA postseason is starting to heat up and Friday night’s betting slate offers a pair a Game 3 matchups starting with Cleveland going on the road against Toronto with a 2-0 series lead after winning the first two games at home both straight-up and against the spread. The Cavaliers closed as seven-point favorites in both of those games and they easily covered in Wednesday’s lopsided 22-point victory. Game time for Friday night is set for 7 p.m. on ESPN.

The backend of this ESPN double header at 10:30 p.m. is Game 3 between the San Antonio Spurs and the Houston Rockets with that series tied at one game apiece. Houston stunned the Spurs in Game 1 with a dominating 27-point win as a six-point road underdog, but San Antonio was able to even things up on Wednesday with a 121-96 victory to cover that same spread at BetAnySports.

Game 3 between Golden State and Utah is the featured matchup on Saturday in an 8:30 p.m. tip on ABC and Sunday night’s action on TNT in a 6:30 p.m. start pits Boston on the road against Washington in Game 4 of that series.

The post positions for Saturday’s Kentucky Derby have been drawn and Classic Empire has been opened as a 4/1 favorite breaking from the No. 14 post. Always Dreaming is a 5/1 second-favorite starting from the No. 5 post.
