What Sports Are in Store for the Rest of 2017?

Steve Marks submits: It has been a great year for sports so far, and with six months of 2017 left, there are still plenty of great events scheduled. Whether you like to take part yourself, watch with friends, or have a flutter on your favourite team, there are lots of opportunities in store for you. If you are someone that likes to take a punt then it’s worth checking out what the professionals have to say about the favourites at the home of betting predictions, SBat.


As for what is in store over the next few months, there is lots to keep you entertained. From football, to tennis, to horse racing and boxing- let us read on to find out more!

Wimbledon

There is nothing better than sitting back with a jug of Pimm’s in the summer sunshine and tuning in to Wimbledon. Arguably, one of the greatest tennis tournaments in the world, Wimbledon brings together the leading athletes in the tennis world to battle it out over several weeks to see who is the best in the world. Last year’s men’s singles winner- Andy Murray looks like he will be out of the running for this year’s title, due to a wrist injury that has kept him out of action for most of 2017. Unless he undergoes a massive transformation, it seems unlikely that he will be vying for this years top spot.

Mayweather vs McGregor

In what has been billed as “The Fight of the Century”, all eyes are on the upcoming bout between MMA champion Conor McGregor, and the retired yet undisputed king of boxing- Floyd Mayweather. It seems certain that the fight will end quickly, and probably in Mayweather’s favour, but there are some that believe McGregor has every chance of surprising us all and packing the winning punch. At this stage it is difficult to tell, but be sure not to miss out on what will most definitely be one of the most exciting matches in MMA and boxing history.

Champions League

The Champions League kicks off in September, putting the cream of the European football against each other in a battle to be crowned UEFA Champions. Real Madrid have held onto their title for the last two seasons and there appears to be no reason why they won’t retain their crown this time. But with lots of new talent cropping up in all of the big teams, there could be a few surprises in store for this year’s tournament.

Melbourne Cup

The Melbourne Cup is one of the most eagerly awaited events in the Aussie calendar and it is colloquially known as “the race that stops the country”. Watched by millions of equine enthusiasts from across the world it is a great opportunity to win some cash by backing a winner.

It certainly is shaping up to be quite the year for sport and if you have never had a punt before, it could be time to place your bets to be in with a chance of pocketing a great win!
