Smart Betting Tips For Rio 2016
It is that time again, when the entire world comes together to celebrate athletic excellence. One of the oldest sporting tournaments is making its way to the energetic, vibrant, and colourful city of Rio after a gap of four years. The Olympics makes its presence felt for the second time in the continent of Latin America and, arguably, there could be no greater ambassador for it than the hustling and bustling Brazil. Rio 2016 promises to be one event that will be remembered for a long time.
Excitement, Intrigue, And Farewells
The 31st Olympics promises to be a carnival of joy and fun, but also has many a sporting spectacle to offer. Rio will bear witness to many a sportsperson walking away from their chosen discipline, having thrilled fans for decades. None more so than Usain Bolt. The ‘fastest man on earth’ has announced that this will be his last race and final curtain call.
There is also the Brazil football team that hopes to win back its lost pride. After being hammered out of the World Cup on their own turf, they will look to win the gold as a minimum to appease the football-mad nation.
Betters Can Strike Gold As Well
With the multitude of sporting events streaming one after the other, not to mention simultaneously, it presents a golden opportunity for punters to strike it rich. Make no mistake, betters can feel a bit lost in the ocean that is the Olympics. Our experts have listed three simple tips that can help people strike gold during the mega event:
- Take advantage of the uninformed
The Olympics presents a strange time for people who indulge in sports betting. There are many who put their money on a team or an athlete without getting information about them. A common reason is that the team or the individual belongs to the betting person’s country. This presents an opportunity for those who do their research to gain more on the same bet, because others bet incorrectly.
- Options and more options
Not only are the general public entertained with the variety of sports on offer, even the bettors find it to be one of the more exciting times to wage money on sports. It is kind of a double whammy with a plethora of sports, including equestrian events, and numbers of exotic events that includes individual, teams and other betting choices within a discipline. Athletics is one of the best examples of the wide variety of options available to appease your betting desires.
- Odds are golden
This is where the punters can go all out. The Olympics provide odds on each and every event. All that has to be done is a certain amount of research, which will help to understand which odds to go for and which ones to ignore.
