July 2020 Sports News Updates, Analysis and Betting Tips for the Month

Mo Salah looks the bet to be top goalscorer

The good news is that just about every sport is back and as things stand, no more events have been cancelled.

Most of these events don’t have any fans at the stadiums and there are a few other measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety is the most important thing, such as no real goal celebrations.

But…let’s just be thankful that sport is well and truly back!  Here are a few of the highlights for July.

Premier League finale: who’s going down, who’s in the Champions League next year?

There are six more rounds of the Premier League till the end of the season and it all reaches a climax on Sunday, July 26, the last weekend of the season where everyone plays at the same time. We know that Liverpool are champions and that Norwich are all but down but there’s still plenty that needs to be decided. Things to look out for:

  • Leicester, Chelsea, Manchester United and Wolves are locked in a fascinating four-way battle for the remaining two Top 4 places with Liverpool and Man City in the Top 2. They’re separated by just three points and this will surely go to the wire.
  • It’s also two from four at the other end of the table. With Norwich all but down, Aston Villa, Bournemouth, West Ham and Watford are battling it out to stay up.
  • There’s yet another four-way battle going on, this time for top goalscorer honours. Jamie Vardy (19), Danny Ings (18), Mo Salah (17) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (17) are all in with a good chance but Vardy is out of form, Ings has some really tough matches coming up and Aubameyang may have other things on his mind as he’s out of contract in the summer. It could be Salah’s to lose.

Verdict: We’re looking at West Ham and Salah

West Ham look a good price at 2.9 with 10CRIC for the drop given David Moyes has failed in the past to keep sides up, while Salah looks the call for top goalscorer 4.5 with Betway.

England v West Indies: Test cricket back at last

It’s wonderful to have Test cricket back and the first series to get us underway is England v West Indies. It’s a three-test series beginning on Wednesday, July 8 with games played in Southampton and two in Manchester. What to look out for…

Heavyweight player. Rakheem Cornwall is the heaviest Test cricketer ever

  • England vice-captain Ben Stokes will be in charge as Joe Root misses out to be present for the birth of his first baby. It will be Stokes’ first experience of captaining England in a Test match.
  • The Windies’ Rakheem Cornwall, the heaviest man ever to play Test cricket, will be facing England for the first time.
  • Windies pace pair Kemar Roach and Alzarri Joseph can cause England some serious problems if they bowl well and fast as a unit.

Verdict: Our money’s on England

the Windies are more than capable of winning a Test in this series, especially if their fast bowlers show up in good shape. But that might be as good as it gets for them, so a 2-1 win for England looks the call at 11.0 with Betway, a far bigger price than it is anywhere else.

Formula One: Hamilton the man to beat as usual

The F1 season kicks off this weekend in Austria and just like every other sport, it will be interesting to see how it’s affected by the Coronavirus and how that changes what actually happens out on the track. A few things to look out for:

  • Mercedes will support the Black Lives Matter cause by swapping their traditional silver colour for black for the 2020 season.
  • Valteri Bottas may see this as the season he really needs to step up. We know he has the talent but Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes team-mate needs to start adding runners-up spots in races and the odd win to his CV if Mercedes are to win the Constructor’s Championship
  • Max Verstappen has won in Austria before and will be ready to take risks to try and start the season in style for Red Bull by winning the first race. Red Bull rate a more serious challenge to Hamilton and Mercedes than Ferrari do.

Analysis: Verstappen is worth you’re time (and money)

It’s hard to see past Hamilton winning another title and odds of around 1.5. But don’t put it past Max Verstappen drawing first blood in Austria, a 3.0 chance with Betway.

Plenty for Max Verstappen to think about

There’s plenty more to come!

Those are three of the best events to look forward to but there’s plenty more including the FA Cup, the La Liga climax and some more UFC events.

We’ll have betting previews ahead of all of the key clashes so keep coming back to these pages nearer the time.
