For those who like to bet on sports in India, and bet on cricket in particular, this will prove a very interesting year. They’ve expanded the Indian Premier League to include two new teams and no one is quite sure what effect that will have. Certainly online bookies in India think they do and reflect their view in their odds on the 2022 IPL. However at the recent player auction Liam Livingstone topped the chart, so does that give the Punjab Kings a better chance? No. Not really.

Boris Johnson’s ability to waltz free from what appear the most terminal of political situations is astonishing. He is now a veritable parliamentary Houdini, albeit it one who required a little help this time round. Where one would expect the smoking remains of his career, he continues to lead both his party and nation. Given the odds on British politics online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 were handing out, that’s amazing. So are they wrong or is he just that good?

2024 Election Odds Still Favor Trump Over Biden Or Kamala

You’d think, after all that has gone on, the odds on Donald Trump getting re-elected would appear quite distant. Instead, he’s the favorite at most online betting sites in the US. Even Bovada give him around 3/1 in their 2024 election odds. That’s astonishing. Or at least we’d think it was if the Democrats weren’t their own worst enemy right now. They are looking down the barrel of a big defeat in the midterms and still seem incapable of doing much, just talking big.

Some are born great, some become great and others have greatness thrust upon them. Or so they say. These days they might find some other options. Traditionally, of course, they insist that one cannot escape one’s fate. Apparently, we are all hand in hand, together on a path of unswerving destiny. They cite examples such as the man in Michigan who found the best lottery to play wasn’t the one he wanted. Apparently if you are fated to win the lottery, that’s what will occur.

As the French move three points clear at the top of the table the bookies tighten their Six Nations odds considerably. Many believe that this is now France’s tournament to lose. Perhaps they will. However whilst that would require a good deal of luck, England are busy congratulating each other for a victory that didn’t require any. Even those who like to bet on sports in the UK felt bad backing England over Italy at Bet365. But to hear England talk you’d think they’d won the final.

Anyone who regularly puts a bet on sports in the UK knows the England Test cricket team needed to change. They simply weren’t winning enough to justify any retention of the status quo. So they brought in a new boss, a new coach and they picked a new team. Much to the consternation of some members of the old team who got left out from the Windies tour. Of course you’re likely to find the odds on Test cricket missing them as much as they believe are quite long.

As leader of the opposition in the UK, you’d think Keir Starmer would find the current situation amusing. Why wouldn’t he laugh at the dire malaise into which the Conservatives dove headfirst? However, those who regularly bet on politics in the UK know this week wasn’t much of a laugh for the Labour leader. Which means you can probably bet on Keir Starmer dropping any pretense at playing Mr Nice Politician. The caretaker has taken over the company, and he’s not happy.

For those who like to bet on politics in the UK it is an infinitely fascinating book. Will the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, see out the year or will the party, people or opposition oust him? No one is entirely sure, and each option seems equally as likely. That’s why, as partygate peters out, online bookies in the UK like Bet365 are reexamining the odds on Boris Johnson. He think’s he’ll survive, and they have to hedge their bets. But can he really muddle through this mire?

From David against Goliath to Jack and his beanstalk, we’ve always had a soft spot for giant slayers. So you’ll find quite a lot of attention focused on the odds on Boreham Wood FC in the FA Cup right now. The 5th tier team did a number on Bournemouth and now face a fixture with Everton. Naturally online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 tend to think Everton will win that easily. But then, they thought Bournemouth would sweep aside Luke Garrard’s team too.

Indeed, with things as they stand, can any of the other teams actually challenge the French? Let’s see.
