Betting on the Olympics in Toyko is going to be a challenge because of the 13-hour time difference from Eastern Time in the United States. Even though Olympic action will be on TV all day, much of it will be tape delayed. So we already have the results and it's not bet-able.

So which events are live on Saturday? There's a big break in live action in the middle of the night in Toyko, which is much of the daytime in the United States.

The biggest live events in primetime on Saturday are swimming, beach volleyball, softball (USA vs. Australia) and the early stages of men's and women's tennis.

You may see some duplicate channels below because NBC will move in and out of coverage on certain events where there are big breaks in action, like swimming.

Overnight into Sunday, we'll get plenty of men's soccer action, Team USA men's basketball in action vs. France and plenty more.
