The latest edition of the RealBet Online Sports Betting News is hot of the press. Although it’s the dog days of the sporting world, there was still plenty to wager on the past couple of weeks and here is hoping your bets were winners. Let’s take a look at some of the biggest moments and see where the value was hiding.
Online Sports Betting News – Portugal Wins EURO 2016
By the time the knockout stage started, Portugal was sitting at 10-1 odds to win Euro 2016. They weren’t even favored to beat Croatia, let alone squirm their way to the final. But, with a stifling defensive structure and the world’s best player, Portugal angled their way to the final and took advantage of a rather fortuitous draw. On the flip side, the host nation of France had everything in front of them. Home field advantage and a Portugal team that lost its superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, to injury within the first 20 minutes of the game. France’s inability to generate anything in the final – a game they were expected to win dating all the way back to January when they were listed at 4-1 odds to win the whole tournament – was disappointing. Portugal stole the game in extra time and the underdog bet paid out huge to those who were willing to risk a little online sports betting.
MLB Betting Online – Giancarlo Stanton Wins HR Derby
There’s nobody who crushes the ball like Giancarlo Stanton. On Monday night, he kept crushing balls into outer space and defeated defending champion Todd Frazier to win his first derby crown. Stanton was among the favorites to win the derby, but on most sites he was sitting behind Frazier who is becoming a staple in this competition. While the field didn’t have everyone we wanted in it (see Bryant, Kris) Stanton hammered his way to a title and showed the world that nobody hits the long ball with more distance than he does.
Olympic Betting Online – Basketball Wagers
The upcoming Olympics in Rio is shrouded in controversy, but the basketball competition is still going to draw plenty of attention. On Sunday, France squared off against upstart Canada in a battle to see who would qualify for Olympic basketball in the 2016 Olympics. Canada, playing without Andrew Wiggins, were underdogs heading into the game vs. a very experienced and deep French team. France controlled the game from start to finish and paid out for anyone who banked on the Canadians being in over their head vs. a quality French side. Tony Parker led the way for France, whichenters the 2016 Olympics as a legit contender to win silver.
Best Tennis Bets – Serena Williams and Andy Murray
Lastly, we saw history on the grass courts. Serena, the favorite to win Wimbledon for months, won her 22nd Grand Slam singles title tying Steffi Graf for the all time record. On the men’s side, Andy Murray, who assumed the role of tournament favorite after Novak Djokovic was upset in the quarterfinals, took down Milos Raonic in straight sets to win his 2nd Wimbledon trophy. Both Williams and Murray will be among the favorites heading into the US Open, with Williams looking to cement her place in history as the greatest women’s tennis player of all time.
