Two Sports Betting Tips Which Could Make You Bank
The last 12 months have been pretty incredible in the world of sports and entertainment.
In the world of soccer, Lionel Messi secured his legacy as the greatest player that’s ever lived when he led Argentina to its first FIFA World Cup triumph since the days of Diego Maradona some 36 years ago.
And it isn’t just on the international side of the beautiful game which has shone brightly.
In club competitions, Manchester City looks set to become just the second side in the history of English football to win the coveted treble.
They face cross-city rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup final and Inter Milan in the UEFA Champions League final in the coming weeks.
With the Premier League already in the bag after outlasting Arsenal in a dramatic title race, Pep Guardiola’s Blues look dead set on becoming history makers.
Stateside, Basketball has never been more popular, and the Miami Heat have provided us with plenty of shocks and surprises in the ongoing postseason.
They stunned the top-seed Milwaukee Bucks in the opening round of the playoffs, before then defeating the New York Knicks in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Following that, Jimmy Butler and Co. raced into a 3-0 lead in the conference finals against the Boston Celtics however, unfortunately for them, they have recently pegged back, and the series is now tied at three games apiece.
While the Heat has impressed everyone on their heroic run, it isn’t them that we are tipping for glory in this article. But we will be starting our roundup in Florida.
Here are four sports betting tips that could make you bank over the course of the next few months.
Florida Panthers to Win the Stanley Cup – EVS
Just like their Floridian counterparts in the NBA, the Florida Panthers have embarked on a heroic run in the NHL.
They secured their spot in the playoffs as a wildcard and in the first round of the postseason, they immediately saw off the top-seed Boston Bruins in a gripping seven-game series.
They then knocked off the second-seed Toronto Maple Leafs in the second round, before thumping the reigning champion Colorado Avalanche in the conference finals, setting up the first Stanley Cup finals appearance in 27 years and just a second appearance in franchise history.
With the Las Vegas Golden Knights and the Dallas Stars going hell for leather in the other conference finals series, the latest NHL odds to win the Stanley Cup make the Panthers even money favorites.
And should that aforementioned pair end up playing through a full seven-game series, that could benefit the Floridians further, as their players have been recuperating for the best part of a fortnight.
At even money, they look like a great bet and a maiden Stanley Cup trophy may very well end up at the FLA Live Arena in the coming weeks.
Cristiano Ronaldo To Return To Real Madrid – +250
While Cristiano Ronaldo’s greatest rival Lionel Messi was etching his name into immortality last December, CR7 was making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
His interview with Piers Morgan and subsequent release from Manchester United were the talk of the sporting world at the time.
His move to Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr on wages reported to be as high as €200m per season then left the jaws of sports fans wide open.
While the former Juventus star and current Portugal captain has put the Saudi Professional League on the map, so much so that Messi and his former Barcelona teammates Sergio Busquets and Andrés Iniesta may very well join him in the Arabian Gulf this summer.
That’s if Ronaldo hangs around long enough to be reunited with them, however.
In recent weeks, there have been talks of Cristiano Ronaldo’s return back to the club which he catapulted to four UEFA Champions League crowns, Real Madrid.
The 38-year-old is the highest goalscorer in the history of Los Blancos, netting 450 goals in just 438 games throughout his nine years at the Bernabeu.
Despite almost reaching 40 years of age, you have to feel that the great man would still do a job in the Spanish capital.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side has just concluded a disastrous campaign in which they finished a whopping 11 points behind their rivals from Catalonia, FC Barcelona, in La Liga.
They were also thumped 5-1 on aggregate by Manchester City in the semifinals of the Champions League.
They did manage to secure the Copa Del Rey this term for the first time in nine years however, that hardly amounts to a successful campaign when you’re representing Real Madrid.
While Ronaldo may well not be an automatic starter at the Bernabeu, you have to feel like his arrival would immediately lift spirits within the squad.
A number of his former teammates are still regulars for Los Blancos and when you’re coming up against the likes of Almeria and Getafe on a regular basis, you have to feel that the great CR7 would still manage to find the net.
At odds of +250, you could do worse things with your wallet than betting on Cristiano Ronaldo returning home.
