Just yesterday, the last round of games in the year 2017 was played in the French Ligue 1. Asides the DFB Pokal this week, the German Bundesliga featured its last game for the year last weekend. And after this coming weekend, the Spanish La Liga will also go on a winter break to resume next year.
The only popular football league that will be having games is the Premier League. And while the games will be coming in thick and fast over the festive period, the games may not be enough for your bet slip, depending on the kind of bettor that you are.
Our guess is you already have a couple of options you’d like to explore during this festive period. However, here are a few sports that you can consider:
When you take a glance at how many games there are to be played in the NBA this season, you’ll be forgiven for forgetting about football for a minute.
These days, there seem to be one game or the other going on in the NBA franchise. And it will at least stay that way till this week runs out. From Cleveland at Golden State Warriors to the Rockets against LA Clippers, NBA fans are spoilt for choice, so much so that they’re already drawing up their fantasy games.
America is not the only place that will be busy with basketball action this period. From Germany’s BBA to the Italian Serie A (yes, that’s what they call their basketball league too) and the Republic of Korea’s KBL, the world is littered with basketball options to choose from this Christmas period.
It’s understandable if you thought the 2017 tennis season was already over. It actually is and what the world is waiting for is the Australian Open while keeping an eye on whether or not Serena Williams will feature.
But there’s just one more tennis tournament exhibition set to take place at the Abu Dhabi International Tennis Complex, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. You’re probably wondering which tennis players will be featuring in this one, right?
Well, with $250k in prize money up for grabs, it has attracted big names like Rafa Nadal, Kevin Anderson, Dominic Thiem, Novak Djokovic, amongst others. Those smart Arab guys!
A 17-week long NFL regular season is already 15 weeks old. With the Super Bowl looming and two weeks to spare, tams are struggling to make the cut. The Patriots, Steelers and the Jaguars look like they will make the cut.
But the likes of Titans, Chiefs and Ravens may have to take advantage of the remaining fixtures to prove their mettle.
Asides all these sports, which other sports are you looking to bet on this Christmas? Leave us a comment and let us know what you think.
