Sports Recap July 18
I am just waiting on the Olympics to cover all the events and free sports offers from the bookmakers including live in-play so I thought today we would do a recap as far as the sporting world goes for potential punters wanting to make bets before London 2012!
Another major drug scandal at the Tour de France, it seems like its always the same every year that a top cyclist goes out of the tour for some obscure substance. This time Frank Schleck takes the fall, a top cyclist from the Radioshack Nissan Trek team who shared the podium with his brother not long ago takes exits for taking Xipamide, and is now on his was back to Luxembourg from this year´s edition of Le Tour according to his team. Expect this to be a great time to bet on Wiggins and his British teammate to win the event 1-2 now that competition has been quite easier for them given the worst of the tour has passed as they still remain on top.
Major news from the Golf world is currently circling the web as Woods, McIlroy, and others take center stage this weekend. Rory stated its not his turf as major winds will be piling into the course during the event. Woods is 9 to 1 to win @bet365 and guys like Mickelson are 27 to 1 odds. Lee Westwood is currently runner up favorite with 15 to 1 odds. Expect a lot of action as most die hard Woods fans will be cheering for him to finally take his game up a notch and recover from the personal scandal that shook up his game a few years ago as it seems his game is reviving at last.
I also have some major football news that will likely mix up a few results during the next European season. PSG has signed major players, one being Ibrahimovich and another Thiago Silva in order to attempt to make a major rise in the UEFA Champions League competition. It seems that with the young Argentinian Pastore, and Lavezzi leading up the right wing, the team will likely go far in both the French competition and the Champions League action this season. This is now a clear goal for the team as the coach has stated recently during his latest press conference. In the first game of the Le Championat, PSG is at 1.36 to win its first game against Orient.
