Best Bets To Make During 2018
22 January 2018
There are many great betting opportunities available in 2018 that have a great chance of coming in and winning a tidy reward. By getting in early on the action you can secure the best odds and will have a chance to hedge your bets once the events come around. In this article, I offer my betting tips that you can make on the different sporting events coming up this year.
Horse Racing – Cheltenham Gold Cup 2018
Cheltenham Bets are one of the most popular during the horse racing calendar year and it attracts all the big money gamblers. My hot tip to win the Gold Cup in 2017 is Thistlecrack who is priced at 5/1 and the current favorite. I expect the odds to drop as the event comes closer so you can get a better return by betting early. The horse was injured with a tendon injury so did not take part in the 2017 event. If Thistlecrack manages to stay injury free this time around, it is hard to see any other winner. For those of you who fancy Horse Race Betting, on this page you may find the best Cheltenham betting tips that are available online.
Football – World Cup 2018
The World Cup attracts vast sums of money in bets and there are many betting options available to choose from. My tip for this event is to bet on the top goalscorer and my pick is Barcelona striker Luis Suarez. He is priced at 28/1 and due to the fact that Uruguay has one of the easiest groups which include Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Russia, the 30-year-old should bang in the goals.
Tennis – ATP Ranking 2018
It can be difficult to pick the Grand Slam winners of the tennis season and generally the returns are not too high due to the favorites doing well at these events. That is why my tip is to bet on the ATP rankings and my pick is Lucas Pouille. The young French star is priced at 8/1 to finish the year ranked in the top eight places and after his Davis Cup heroics, he will be full of confidence.
Another reason this is a great bet to make is due to the number of injuries to the players ranked inside the top ten. Andy Murray is suffering from hip problems, Kei Nishikori, Milos Raonic and Stan Wawrinka are all suffering from injuries and Novak Djokovic along with Rafael Nadal are not at 100%.
Golf – US Open
My betting tip for gold in 2018 is for the US Open and Patrick Reed to claim the cup. He is priced at 80/1 and the reason I am backing him is down to the event been held in New York Shinnecock Hills where the player has an exceptional record. This tricky course is where Reed can shine as it is perfectly suited to his short game.
Cricket T20 Blast
Northamptonshire is an outstanding white-ball team and in the T20 they are being overlooked by the bookmakers. They are priced at 16/1 and with Ben Duckett looking like he will be not going away the Lions this summer, they could go all the way in the T20 Blast.
