USA 13/8 to Be Top North American Team at the World Cup

May 13th, 2014 at 7:42 AM
By Sports Media 101

The World Cup is almost upon us and there are plenty of betting markets to whet the appetite from outright winner and top scorer all the way down to lowest scoring team and player of the tournament. There’s lots of value to be had in some of the less known markets and Easyodds.com football tipster has picked out which nation he thinks will go furthest from each continent.

Top South American Team

Uruguay @ 14/1BET NOW

This is perhaps the hardest selection to pick with the World Cup winner likely to come from South America. Brazil look a touch short at 11/10 given they are likely to face tough opponents as early as the last 16 with Spain, Holland or Chile the most likely sides to face them while Argentina have not gone beyond the quarter-finals since 1990 and don’t appeal at 7/4. Therefore I have plumped for Uruguay at a huge price 14/1. I expect Oscar Tabarez’s side to qualify from Group D where Colombia or Ivory Coast should meet them and they certainly have the quality to negotiate either of those sides. The fixtures get trickier from then on but with Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani et al in their ranks they can beat anyone on their day.

World Class Athletes are Always Looking for a Competitive Edge

By Sports Media 101

With the grand prix well under way, horse racing season upon us and other major sporting events just around the corner such as The Commonwealth Games this July, it is an important time for many sports players and fans world over. Often we see players and fans taking all sorts of weird and wonderful measures to give their side the competitive edge, from strange diets and exercise regimes, prayers and wishes to psychic consultations; often no stone is left unturned in the goal for that next win.

Winning Matters

Since organized sports first began in Ancient Greece with the invention of have gladiator fighting and athletics there have been various superstitions and rituals associated with gaining good luck to win. At the heart of organized sports is the competitive nature of individuals to do better than the opposing team or player and as such, winning does matter to both players and fans. Stating that it is just a game or something where people hit a ball around a field a few times is not going to go very far with an avid sports lover.

How to Turn the Local Park into Your Gym

During the winter, those of us who are more fitness-inclined see ourselves spend less and less time exercising outside and more and more time exercising at the local gym or in our home workout spaces. With a treadmill at home (Fitness Warehouse is a reliable provider), you can burn calories in private, but as we all know, outdoor exercise is more intense and burns calories faster than indoor exercise does. So, now that spring has finally arrived, it’s time to start thinking about taking your exercise regime outdoors again. The local park is the perfect place for a full body work out, here’s now you can use the space to its full potential.

Testing Your Strength on Trees

Trees are nature’s jungle gyms. If you’re looking to build some strength in your upper body and core, find a sturdy tree with a low-hanging branch. Before you use it for anything, test that it can hold your body weight, and then use the branch for pull-ups. The best thing about using a branch is that the tree’s bark provides a great grip, and the natural give of the wood will make your first pull-up more manageable.

Head to Harrogate

Harrogate, one of the most expensive and desirable areas in all of Yorkshire is going to be one of the hot spots for those looking to get a piece of the action at the Tour de France this year. On July 5th, there’ll be a sprint to the finish line across the Stray which is just by the side of the main city centre, and leaves you in the perfect position to get a slice of cake from world-famous tea shop Betty’s. If you fancy watching a more endurance-testing stretch of the race, then the hike up the A59 out of Harrogate will be worth a watch – though it means you’ll have to wait for your Betty’s.
