One of the biggest advantages of online sports gambling is the range of sports we can now easily follow. Clearly gambling on sports such as horse racing and football remains the biggest sports gambling activity in Ireland and many other parts of the world, but the introduction of online sports gambling has encouraged many of us to gamble on some of the less popular sports, particularly when it comes to major events. It has to be said that gambling on tennis for example is not a major part of our sports gambling for most of the year, but for the next two weeks there will be a massive surge in tennis gambling because of the start of the Wimbledon championships. It doesn’t seem to matter what the sport is for many ardent sports gambling fans, a major tournament will always attract their attention and Wimbledon is as big as it gets in tennis. There are four Grand Slam tennis events played around the world, but to win Wimbledon is still considered to be highest achievement that any professional tennis player could aspire to. The appeal of major tournaments such as this for sports gambling fans whatever the sport is the guaranteed presence of all the top players in that particular sport. In tennis of course there is another major difference between the Grand Slam events and all the other men’s tennis tournaments contested throughout the year. and that is the matches being played over five sets instead of three. Tennis commentators usually agree that the longer matches favour the best players, but Wimbledon in particular has a history of staging major upsets certainly in the early rounds, which can be a good opportunity for tennis gambling fans to back a good outsider to knock out a seeded player. We’re sure that fans of gambling on tennis will be glued to their televisions over the next two weeks.
