The sporting schedule may have been depleted through the spring, but many top sports have returned and things are about to get a lot busier through the summer and the rest of 2020.
As announced on June 26, the NBA is set to become the first of the four major professional sports leagues in the United States to resume, with the season springing back into life with a big double-header on July 30 featuring Utah Jazz vs New Orleans Pelicans and Los Angeles Clippers vs Los Angeles Lakers. The NHL has announced its return simultaneously.
Basketball is one of the most popular sports on betting sites across the world, and the odds have been released for the first set of games. You can also wager on outright markets for each conference and the NBA Championship.
Sports Interaction is one of the best and most reliable sites for basketball odds, but by looking at a list of the best sportsbooks for online betting in Canada, you will be able to find a bookmaker that suits you.
While the NBA is set for action in Orlando, across the Atlantic there has already been a feast of top-flight sport for fans and bettors to enjoy in the form of football (soccer). Several of Europe’s biggest and best leagues came back in May and June, including the Premier League, which is always prominent on sportsbooks.
Upon the Premier League’s completion, the UEFA Champions League will return with a mini tournament in Lisbon to determine the winner. Manchester City and Bayern Munich are joint-favourites to win the biggest club competition in the continent.
If association football is your thing, you can’t go wrong with the classic British bookie, William Hill. It is one of the most renowned and trusted bookmakers on the market, and punters from a wide range of countries, including Canada, can register and bet with them.
While team sports are soon to be in full flow, individual sports have also been filtering back in, including mixed martial arts as the UFC has been back since May. A series of events are set to go ahead on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi, and top betting sites such as 888sport are accepting wagers on the fights.
Golf fans have been treated to some high-quality fields in the events that have taken place on the PGA Tour in recent weeks, and with the first major of the year, the PGA Championship, set for the beginning of August, the betting opportunities are going to increase further.
Betway is one of the best betting sites for golf, largely thanks to their huge selection of markets that span across straight win wagers, each way bets, first round 3 balls, tournament match bets, and more.
Formula 1 has had a large chunk of its calendar scrapped, but the first weekend of July marks the motor sport’s long-awaited comeback. The reduced season may make for an interesting title race, and bettors will be able to bet on the winner of both the Drivers Championship and the Constructors’ Championship, plus other bet types on betting sites like LeoVegas.
Horse racing has continued throughout the year in some parts of the world behind closed doors, and the month of June saw the Belmont Stakes run as the first Triple Crown event of the year in America, and Royal Ascot went ahead as planned in its scheduled slot but without an audience.
Many more big meetings are on the way, and of course, betting sites are a huge part of the horse racing ecosystem. Any bookie worth its salt offers a selection of horse racing markets, with Bet365 no exception.
