If you’re an avid fan of betting on sports, it doesn’t get any better than the month of October. No matter what sports you follow, there’s always something for the money man/woman in all of us. Consider this: in any particular weekend in October, you could be looking at 50 or 60 college football games, 14 NFL games, 15 or 20 NHL games, 15 to 20 NBA match ups, and even sometimes six or eight playoff baseball games. There’s a LOT going on, so pay attention and you could easily maximize your profit by betting on games.
Some great events to bet on are coming up this month. Keep an eye on the MLB playoffs, as there are definitely underdogs and big money opportunities available to those who are paying attention. For me, this post-season I’d keep an eye on the Cleveland Indians. Cleveland won the first wild card spot in the american league by going on an absolute tear to end the season. They won their last 10 games and streaked past the Rays and Rangers (who are now competing in a one-game playoff for the second wild card spot) thanks to a favorable schedule down the stretch and great play to finish the regular season. October is gonna be a doozy for major league baseball.
Another event to keep an eye on is the NFL. October is when things begin to heat up and the good, bad, and ugly teams start to take shape. For example, NFC East divisional match ups between the Eagles and Giants in week 5 and the Redskins and Cowboys in week 6 could be interesting, as the NFC East might wind up being the closest division from week to week despite the fact that the division seems pretty weak right now.
To the folks looking to make some cash and have some fun in the best month in American sports, best of luck to you! And don’t forget that for the best place to place odds on betting, Betfair Exchange is the place to go.
Good luck and happy betting!
