The year 2018 is exciting. Exciting for sports betting that is. Even though nearly half of the year has passed, there are still a great number of events that sports betters can look forward to and bet on.
Here are a couple of sports events that all sports betters in America should look out for in the remainder of 2018.
Football fans rejoice! The season for the National Football League (NFL) is about to begin in a month’s time in September.
This past year’s Super Bowl was one of the most amazing ones in history. In it, the Philadelphia Eagles finally beat the juggernauts in Tom Brady and his New England Patriots. This is particularly interesting because the Eagles had been chasing the Super Bowl for quite a while.
Apart from this though, the Eagles were going in to it with their backup quarterback Nick Foles. And won.
This just goes to show that absolutely nothing is set in stone when a committed group of people come together and work hard for it.
What do you think we’ll expect this coming NFL season? Surprises lay in wait for us every time the season begins.
GGG vs. Canelo Alvarez
This is one of the most awaited rematches in boxing history between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin or Triple G (GGG). Golovkin’s WBA and WBC middleweight titles are on the line once more. The event is slated for September 15, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The first fight was particularly interesting. It ended with a draw that many people and critics found controversial. However, it was also seen as one of the best fights of 2018.
The rematch was actually slated to happen a bit earlier. It was decided upon last May 5. However, Alvarez failed a drug test for the drug Clebuterol and was suspended for six months by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).
These two fighters are legends in their own right. Alvarez is coming in with a record of 49-1-2 and 34 knockouts. Golovkin has a record of 38-0-1 with 34 knockouts as well. This is the deciding fight to see who is better between the two.
