We’re on Day 3 without sports, and you’ve probably already deep-cleaned the house twice, learned to play the piano, built a new deck and stocked up on food.

So what now?

Our friends at PointsBet have offered up five leagues to bet on Saturday (and we’ve got horse racing).

The sportsbook, available in Indiana and New Jersey, is also offering NFL lookahead lines (we’re only 183 days away!).

1. Horse Racing

It’s horse racing’s time to shine.

You’ve probably heard a lot about it since every other league suspended play. If you want to learn how to bet it, check out our beginner’s guide.

The Rebel Stakes, part of the road to the Kentucky Derby, begins at around 6:30 p.m. ET on Saturday from Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Ark.

Our Jeremy Pond wrote a full preview of the race here.

2. Super Lig (Turkey)

Turkish soccer? Free to watch online for 30 days? Sounds like the perfect marriage.

Through some quick digging, it appears you can get a 30-day free trial to watch Boluspor vs. Bursaspor (-190) at noon ET.

3. Russian Superliga

Sportsbooks really want you to keep betting. DraftKings is even advertising the fact that the Russian Superliga broadcasts its soccer matches live on YouTube.

The last match on Saturday is Arsenal Tula (+125) vs. Rubin Kazan (+245) at noon ET. You can bet it at DraftKings and watch it on YouTube.

4. UFC Brasilia

UFC Fight Night 170 will go on with no fans in attendance in Las Vegas after being moved from Brazil. The prelims start at 3 p.m. ET, with Kevin Lee (-135 at PointsBet) against Charles Olivieira in the main event around 7 p.m. ET.

You can watch on ESPN+.

5. Super Rugby

Highlanders (+320) vs. Jaguares (-450) may sound like a bizarro-world Arena Football League game, but it’s a Super Rugby match kicking off at 7 p.m. ET in Argentina.

What is Super Rugby? It’s a league featuring club teams from Argentina, Australia, Japan, New Zealand and South Africa. The more you know.

You can watch on ESPN+, and bet at PointsBet if you’re in New Jersey or Indiana.

6. Liga MX

You may actually recognize some team names in Liga MX, Mexico’s domestic soccer league.

There are four matches tonight, with the first at 7 p.m. ET and the last kicking off at 11 p.m. ET.
