There are some fantastic sporting events to bet on in March of 2017, but these three are offering some of the best odds.
We’re finally coming into Spring, and a number of amazing major sporting events are just kicking off. Here are a few of the best events that you can already bet on with PaddyPower.
Bet on March Madness in 2017
The first and most obvious sporting event to bet on in March is the NCAAB Championship, more commonly known as March Madness. From March 14th to April 3rd, the best teams in college basketball will be competing for the national championship in one of the most exciting tournaments in sports.
A number of 2017 March Madness betting favorites have already emerged, and many basketball betting experts are busy choosing their underdog bets. At the moment, Kansas is favored to win the NCAA Basketball Championship with odds of 13/2. Kentucky, UCLA, Villanova, Gonzaga, and North Carolina are also betting favorites with odds of 17/2.
How about betting on some March Madness dark horses? Florida is seen as a great betting option with odds of 25/1. Virginia is another solid betting option with odds of 33/1. Leicester City showed that anything can happen in sports, and if you want to bet on a similar upset taking place in college basketball, consider betting on Boise State, who’s odds to win currently sit at 500/1.
Bet on the 2017 Six Nations Championship
We at GamingZion have already covered a number of major Six Nations games this year, and with less than two weeks until the tournament’s conclusion, this is one of the best sporting events to bet on in March, according to PaddyPower.
England has been dominating the competition thus far. They are the only undefeated team in the tournament with 3 straight victories, most recently beating Italy by a massive 36-15 margin. England holds 13 table points at the moment, and is the significant betting favorite with odds of 4/9.
Behind England in the rankings is Ireland, who have also played admirably this year with 2 wins and 1 loss, with a +58 point difference and 10 table points in total. Ireland’s odds to win the 2017 Six Nations are set at 5/2. Scotland still has a chance to make UK gambling news by capturing the title this year if they can win their next two games, but they’re serious underdogs with odds of 10/1.
Bet on Gennady Golovkin vs. Daniel Jacobs
Gennady Golovkin, one of the most feared boxers in the world, will once again be stepping into the ring this March against American middleweight Daniel Jacobs in one of the best sporting events to bet on in March. Some boxing betting experts feel Jacobs presents some real threats to GGG, yet PaddyPower still lists him as a major betting underdog.
Golovkin is one of the biggest hitters below 170 pounds, and has arguably the best chin in boxing today. With a perfect 36-0 record and 33 KO’s, GGG may be the sport’s pound-for-pound king. Not many people are signing up to fight this man, and he’s entering this fight against Jacobs as a massive favorite with odds of 1/8.
Daniel Jacobs was seen as a potential star early in his career. In 2012, he was diagnosed with cancer, and spent more than 15 months outside the ring. He went on the beat the cancer, and has now won 8 straight fights, all by TKO. Nearly all online sportsbooks in the UK list Jacobs as a serious underdog with odds of 9/2.
