Summer Soccer Betting – Filling in the End of a Canceled Season

No doubt all football fans feel the low end of the English football season, not long after the last game is played and we are all counting down to August when it all starts again. Online Gambling Those who increase the thrill of every game by betting on their team will suffer a double hit – no football and no betting!

There are ways to fill the void. There are many other sports  available to bet on; boxing, golf and snooker but tennis and cricket would be my picks here. There is plenty of cricket at the 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 Major league football.

If other sports don’t work then there is international football to get you going, but these are few and far between. So another way is to take advantage of Betfairs’ online offerings and place some bets on the football ‘special’ market.

Most people are aware of Betfair’s unique position, which means you can bet on a certain outcome NOT happening. For example, Villa are now without a manager and everyone is speculating who will take over. When betting with traditional online bookmakers like WilliamHill and Ladbrokes you have to choose who you think will take over, this could be one of two or three people and you could end up losing. Using lay bets with Betfair you could say; “Maybe Martin Jol or Mark Hughes but definitely not Sam Allardyce.” You can place a lay bet on Alladyce taking over feeling pretty confident she won’t, and this way it doesn’t matter which of the other competitors gets the job.

If you are going to give this a try then make sure to use the free sports betting offers available. Currently Betfair has a free £30 bet on offer, so take advantage of this when you bet. If your prediction doesn’t come in then you don’t lose, and if you don’t, you get not only the winnings but also the bonus money that is credited as part of the free bet!

Other great football specials available today include old favorites that look set to launch every year, such as whether or not Tevez, Drogba, Fabregas or Ashley Young will leave over the summer. Also added to this year’s list is whether Gareth Bale will stay, and will Berbatov, Arshavin, Defoe and Modric leave their respective clubs. Plus all vacancies in the managerial comedy round will appear on the site.

So my advice is to get on the site and give it a try, and if you want some tips then try going on the respective club’s forum sites. Unofficial forums tend to be full of people who live and breathe their local club and you can guarantee there is always someone with relatives who works for the club and has a bit of inside information!
