July 2021 - Latest Sports Betting News
July sees the conclusion of the Euro 2020 tournament, which ends on Sunday 11th July with the final at Wembley. This has been a very good tournament so far, with some shock exits already (France, Netherlands) and some good progress by England.

As we enter the Quarter Finals stage, England are now favourites at 2/1, with what looks like a relatively 'easy' route on paper to the final. Also the Semi-Finals and Final will be at Wembley, giving England home advantage and their best chance of winning since they got to the Semi Finals at Euro 96.
Spain are next at 16/5, though we think the other finalist will come from the winner of the Italy vs Belgium match. It's an interesting tournament and don't rule out further shocks as teams seem to be
blowing a little hot and cold, understandable with player tiredness after a long domestic season.
Of the outsiders, it's hard to see the winner coming from there, but possibly Denmark could be a good shout at 10/1 if England do slip up and don't make it through their half of the draw.
Boxing - Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3
Once the excitement of the Euros is finished, later in the month Tyson Fury boxes Deontay Wilder for the third time. The bout takes place on Saturday 24th July.
Most boxing fans had hoped to be watching Tyson Fury face Anthony Joshua in a huge unification bout, but Wilder had a rematch clause for a third fight and after much legal wrangling he got his way.
So fans will have to wait and hope that Fury dispatches Wilder with the same ease as he did in the second fight when he knocked out the American fighter in 7 rounds having domainated the fight.
Tyson Fury 1/3 (Bet365)
Deontay Wilder 5/2
Draw 25/1 (Betfred)
The odds put Fury as the clear favourite, however anything can happen in heavyweight boxing. We hope that Fury does get the win and we can all look forward to the Fury vs Joshua showdown for all the belts.
