Rugby League is one of Australia’s favorite sports, and this season has already shown that any team can beat any team on their day, which makes it even more attractive to watch, but the downfall is it’s been tough to bet on.
Round 8 of the NRL season was run and won last weekend, and it left punters with no fingernails whatsoever. Across the eight matches, seven of them were decided by six points or less.
Out of those, four were upsets, with the Parramatta Eels, Wests Tigers, Manly Sea Eagles and the Gold Coast Titans all winning at huge odds.
The Donald Trump era as the 45th president of the United States has been nothing short of an absolute whirlwind. Whether you love him or hate him, you can’t deny The Donald is great at grabbing headlines.
Online sportsbook Bovada has some YUGE prop specials available for Trump’s 100th day in office, which occurs on April 29. Never one to shy away from extending his Twitter fingers, you can bet on how many tweets he’ll send on that date as well as his job approval rating.
This Tuesday is ANZAC Day, which stands for “Australia and New Zealand Army Corps” Day. On the 25th of April each year, Australians stop to commemorate the first military engagement of the ANZAC forces that occurred during the First World War.
ANZAC forces landed on Gallipoli on April 25, 1915, to fight against the Ottoman Turks, who were allies with Germany. The main objective was to capture Constantinople but the campaign was disastrous and over eight months, more than 8,000 ANZAC soldiers lost their lives.
There's an old saying that Australians will gamble on two flies crawling up a wall. Well, we're not sure if there's an Easter fly-crawling contest on anywhere, but Aussies will be pretty much betting on everything else this long weekend.
Two iconic events will be staged in sports you would not usually associate with betting — the Stawell Gift in athletics, and the Rip Curl Pro in surfing.
The Augusta National Golf Club may be almost 16,000 kilometres (9,800 miles) away from the east coast of Australia, but this weekend, the distance, and the time difference, will not matter if one of the five Aussies in the field for the year’s first golf major, the Masters, makes a run on the final day.
For those Aussies who are making the trip, and there will be plenty, it takes 21 hours on a plane, plus the requisite transit times plus customs, but it will be worth every minute, and every cent, once the freshly cut grass of the world’s greatest course comes into view.
