Meanwhile, options bulls are chiming in at double what's typically seen at this point. More specifically, 125,000 calls have crossed the tape so far today, in comparison to 12,000 puts. Most popular by far is the weekly 6/25 35-strike call, followed by the 33-strike call in the same series, with new positions being opened at both. 

However, FUBO could be due for a short-term breather. This is per the stock's 14-Day Relative Strength Index (RSI) of 66 is nearing "overbought" territory. Plus, the $34 mark still looms large. This region acted as a floor for FUBO prior to a bear gap the stock experienced in early March. Since then, it's kept a tight lid on the shares.
