Whilst 2020 has been a tough year, the betting markets have still managed to survive. A dramatic drop in the sport being competed has led to a drop in the sports betting events. This isn’t great for the bookmakers but going into 2021 it means that there are some seriously good promotions and betting opportunities, especially on day 3 of Cheltenham which will be full of tips and promotions. Hopefully they can help win you big and get you that extra funding for a potential, long-awaited, holiday next year.
Biggests Betting events in 2021
Following its postponement the biggest international football tournament in Europe has been rearranged for 2021. This will see the biggest and best teams from across the continent compete. Running throughout the summer, there are little other competitive clashes which should see the championships soar to popularity in both tv viewings and also betting. As with most other footballing events the chance to stick coupons on and involve those who would otherwise not bet in sweepstakes is high.
There will also be undoubtedly large promotions from the bookies which the punters can make the most of. With such an open competition and no clear favourite following recent results, this competition is sure to be a good one for your standard gambler.
Following a year which saw huge changes and cancellations, horse racing still – for the best part – soldiered on. Unfortunately, one of the biggest races in the land had to go virtual to sustain itself on the world stage. The Grand National which has been running a virtual race from 2017 had to use this as the pinnacle of the sport due to the actual event being postponed.
With fans eager for the return to the ‘Big One’, the 2021 fixture is set for a return to real life racing and could see Tiger Roll secure a historic 3rd Grand National title. This prospect in addition to the standard excitement that this race brings to the punters and public across Britain and indeed the world is sure to set the bookies up for a big day of winnings or an even bigger day of payouts. Let’s hope it’s the latter!
With Stradivarius aiming to become only the second horse in history to lift the Gold Cup four times, Royal Ascot is poised to be a spectacle in itself. But what would make it even more of a spectacle would be to have the fans back at the racetrack. Whilst this year the race went ahead, it was surrounded by empty concourse and the race felt deflated like never before. Normally this race would draw in thousands of punters, trying their luck at the bookies surrounding the racetrack to try and get some bang for their buck on their selection. Let’s hope that by June next year there are some fans back in and supporting the horses on this track.
Currently in a very strong position in terms of the pandemic, Australia has managed to curb the flow of the deadly virus on its shores. This has allowed for a relative return to normality and given many people some of their lives back. This also means, with the Australian Open being the first major of the year in the tennis calendar that it is bound to be a big one and hopefully have fans back.
A return to something of a normality would be a perfect way to kick off 2021 and I’m sure some of the big names in tennis will fight for their right to the crown, whilst some young guns might well have something else up their sleeves to offer an upset. It tends to wet the whistle for many before the French Open and Wimbledon.
