Summer Soccer Betting – Filling the End of Season Void
No doubt all soccer fans are feeling the low that comes with the end of the English football season, no sooner as the last game is played and we’re all counting down to August when it all starts up again. Those who enhance the thrill of every game with a bet on their team will be suffering a double hit – no football and no betting!
There are ways to fill the void. There are lots of other sports that are available to bet on; boxing, golf, and snooker, but tennis and cricket would be my choices here. There’s load of cricket going on at County and National level, and Wimbledon provides a great two weeks of tennis betting. Also, if you want to go overseas and try something new there’s US basketball, baseball, and don’t forget the Major league soccer.
If other sports won’t do, then there are Nhan dinh bong da the soccer internationals to keep you going, but these are few and far between. So the other way is to take advantage of Betfairs online offers and place some bets on the soccer ‘specials’ markets.
Most people are aware of the unique positioning of Betfair, which means you can bet on a particular outcome NOT happening. For example, Villa are now without a manager and everyone is speculating who will take over. When betting with the traditional online bookmakers such as WilliamHill and Ladbrokes you have to pick who you think WILL take over, this could one of two or three people and you could end up missing out. Using the lay bet with Betfair you can say; ‘it might be Martin Jol or Mark Hughes but it definitely won’t be Sam Allardyce’. You can place a lay bet on Alladyce taking over feeling pretty confident he won’t, and this way it doesn’t matter which of the other contenders does get the job.
If you are going to have a go at this then be sure to make use of the free sport betting offer available. At the moment Betfair are have a free £30 bet on offer, so take advantage of this when you place you bet. In the unlikely event that your prediction doesn’t come in then you haven’t lost out, and if it does you not only get the winnings but the bonus of the money credited as part of the free bet!
Other great soccer specials available at the moment include the old favourites that seem to get rolled out every year, such as will Tevez stay or go, will Drogba, Fabregas, or Ashley Young leave over the summer. Also added to the list this year are whether Gareth Bale will stay, and will Berbatov, Arshavin, Defoe and Modric leave their respective clubs. Plus all the vacancies on the managerial merry-go-round will turn up on the site.
So my advice is to get on the site and give it a go, and if you want a few tips then try going on the respective clubs forum sites. The unofficial forums tend to be full of people who live and breathe their local club and you can guarantee there’s always some-one with a relative who works for the club and has a bit of inside information!
