Fists fly and engines roar. It’s party time in Las Vegas, so let’s cash some tickets on boxing and NASCAR this weekend — and, of course, football.
Cashing tickets is what it’s all about, so here’s two picks for Saturday and three for Sunday.

Mexico is plus 1,200 at the South Point to win the championship and as much as plus 600 to win its second-round match Monday against Brazil.
Arizona big man Deandre Ayton might have starred in the NBA draft as the No. 1 pick, but the league has upstaged its own show with the drama surrounding LeBron James.
Before Thursday, you could back Dustin Johnson at 10-1 odds. With a 69 followed by a 67, you’ll be lucky to find even money on the front-runner at Shinnecock Hills in Southampton, New York.

A horse named Justify and a basketball player nicknamed King James headline a terrific betting Saturday that starts with the Preakness, the second jewel of the Triple Crown.
