July 2020 - Latest Sports Betting News
The sports action continues in July, with many sports now returning to action and the Premier League in full swing as the final month of the season plays out. There is also action in Serie A in Italy and La Liga in Spain.
The Premier League is back in full swing, with Liverpool now finally confirmed as champions. There's still plenty to play for though, with Champions League spots and Europa spots up for grabs and with a number of teams still scrapping it out to avoid relegation to the Championship.
With Liverpool champions and Man City a clear 2nd, an interesting market to look at right now is the odds for 'top 4 finish' in the Premier League:-
Top 4 Finish Odds
Man Utd 4/9 (Paddy Power)
Chelsea 8/15 (Bet365)
Leicester 11/10 (888Sport)
Wolves 3/1 (Bet365)
Arsenal 125/1 (Paddy Power)
Tottenham 150/1 (Paddy Power)
Sheffield United 250/1 (Bet365)
Leicester have been in poor form since the return of football and weren't doing too great in February and March either, so they look like they might fall out of the top four picture. A very good shout is Wolves at 3/1, they have been in great form and offer some value over the favourites Man Utd and Chelsea.La Liga
La Liga returned in June and the title race is still undecided with Real Madrid currently enjoying a 4 point lead over Barcelona at the time of writing.
The bookies make Real Madrid massive title favourites with only 5 games to go, with Real only available at 1/9 with Bet365 and Barcelona available at 13/2 at William Hill. The run-ins are fairly similar, it would be unexpected for Real Madrid to drop the 4 point lead from here, but certainly it may be worth a small punt on Barca at 13/2.
Serie A is also in it's final stages with Juventus currently atop the table and enjoying a four point lead over nearest rivals Lazio with 9 games to go. Juventus look very strong but Lazio are putting up a good fight. We can't really see past Juventus at this stage but the run in is going to be fun to watch.
Serie A Title Odds
Juventus 1/8 (Bet365)
Lazio 5/1 (Ladbrokes)
Inter 33/1 (Coral)
The bookies make Juventus 1/8 favourites, although Lazio still do have a shout with 9 games left, but Juventus look to have a much stronger squad.
