Get the bet in early for the best odds. Take out some bets on the soccer World Cup this year, or be left waiting another four years for the chance to do it again!
NFL Super Bowl
Opinions on the NFL are a little mixed at the minute, but that won’t affect the popularity of the Super Bowl. It’s the one game a year that practically everyone sits down and watches, and that presents a lot of chances for betting. NFL Super Bowl bets go beyond betting on just the game too; people are free to make bets on things like the adverts and how long the half-time show will last. Take bets on which team wins, who gets the most touchdowns, and just about any other aspect of the largest NFL game of the year.
The NBA represents the best of the best of basketball, and the NBA Championship goes to the very best of the best of the best. Have an idea of which team that is? Then put your money where your mouth is with a sports bet. Take out a bet on a lot of other aspects of the game as well; who scores the most points, who gets the most 3-pointers, and anything else you can think of. The NBA Championship also opens the doors to betting on the NBA playoffs and a range of other basketball events. Every self-proclaimed gambler owes it to themselves to explore the gambling opportunities of the NBA Championship.
Major League Baseball All-Star Game
The Major League Baseball All-Star Game takes place in July and offers something of a halfway-point of the MLB season. The rosters for the teams in the all-star games are selected by fans, players, and managers. Replacements are also chosen in case they are needed. As one of the largest games in the baseball season, there’s a lot of betting action to be found. For a start, fans can take bets on which players are going to make the teams, as well as the final outcome of the game of course. Bets can also be placed on the best players for each team, the number of runs, and anything else that can be betted on during a regular baseball game.
Daytona 500 (NASCAR)
The Daytona 500 is the most important race in NASCAR, and also the most popular. Even those with no real interest in NASCAR tune in to the 500-mile-long race held at the Daytona International Speedway. The main betting choice in the Daytona 500 is the winner of the race of course. Different sports betting providers also offer different betting options, including things such as how long it will take to complete the race and the number of crashes. Anyone who watches the Daytona 500 knows that there will be at least one crash. The good news is that the cars are built in such a way that the drivers are never in a lot of danger.
