It has certainly been an exciting summer for sports gambling enthusiasts, and with the Euro 2012 football championships and the Olympics now over there is still plenty to come. The Paralympics are already under way as is the US Open tennis in New York. Laura Robson has already given tennis gambling fans something to think about with her unexpected victory over Kim Clijsters, a player who had not lost at the US Open since 2003. For those sports fans who enjoy gambling on motor racing, this weekend also sees the return of the F1 series with the Belgian Grand Prix, and with nine races to go many believe the Championship is still wide open. Certainly this season has seen so many different race winners that gambling on any particular race may be tricky let alone the overall Drivers Championship winner. Also starting this weekend is the Rugby Union Premiership, which rugby gambling fans may also find difficult to predict with any degree of confidence. Most rugby commentators believe that this season will be very close to call. Next up in this extraordinary year of sport is a feast for golf gambling enthusiasts, with the Ryder Cup to be contested this year on American soil. Both teams have now been finalised and experts differ in their assessment of which team will start favourites. Europe have more players in the World top ten golfers than ever before, but the American team includes a lot of experienced and proven winners including of course a resurgent Tiger Woods. The final result is bound to be close so this is yet another event where sports gambling fans will find it difficult to pick a winner. Recent financial reports from major online gambling operators Paddy Power and 888 Holdings prove that sports gambling remains a popular pastime and that we appear to be as willing as ever to gamble on our favourite sporting events, so all we can say is best of luck and we hope you pick a winner.
