Athletics betting can allow a punter to really explore a variety of individual and team events in pursuit
of a good wager. Additionally, the variation in outcomes between indoor and outdoor events adds to the
uncertainty and thrill of the experience. If you are looking for a change from betting on traditional
team sports, athletics betting can be just what you are looking for right now.
The flashiest of the athletics betting opportunities are the speed races. Both men's and women's events
are highly charged and heavily followed. The top names know each other and the difference between winning and
losing can come down to a tenth of a second. Sometimes, the difference is all about who wanted it more that day,
creating an opportunity for long odds and unexpected showings.
Other events that attract a bit of a crowd are the hurdle events and the jumping. Recently, there has been a
surge of interest from the Asian side of things, as the Chinese have been fielding some very fast athlete on
the men's hurdles, which had traditionally not been strength for them. Punters will thus find that volumes are
up, creating more opportunities on the betting exchanges.
Marathons also can be major monetary windfalls. Betting on the London marathon is popular, and the number
of combinations available is really something to see. You can bet on individuals, teams, corporate sponsorship
placings, overall times, best times, worst times and everything in between. It's quite entertaining, although
most athletics betting specialists will turn up their noses at some of the more comical opportunities.
All laughing aside, athletics betting is quite different from betting on team sports. To be really
successful, you need to study the individuals. The speed races aren't the only events where it really pays to
know the competitor and the coach. You will find that you place more profitable wagers with study, and that
you are more adequately limiting losses.
You will also be pleasantly surprised in your study at the number of athletics betting opportunities that
arise. The qualifying matches and tournaments run all year long, meaning that you don't have to endure a
miserable off season. Furthermore, the health of the competitors is something that constantly fluctuates,
opening up positions for underdogs and new arrivals throughout the year.
Add in some of the major world championship events to push up volumes, and you will find that this is an
opportunity you shouldn't be ignoring. Do a bit of research and choose an event. You'll be quite happy you took
