February is a welcome page on the calendar for punting in Australia.
After a slumber of a couple months, Thoroughbred racing is back with Group level racing commencing on 2 February straight through to the 27th of the month, with Saturday meetings and a few key races on other days as well.
Caulfield and Rosehill dominate for the early party of the month. Tasmania has some nice races early on, too.
The first Group 1 of the season is the CF Orr Stakes at Caulfield. Six Group races are set for Randwick, including the Group 2 Apollo Stakes that will be a big draw as Winx resumes. Flemington has a few, Moonee Valley and Rosehill will all inaugurate autumn racing in advance of the big races to follow in March.
There should be several or more free bets promotions and punters should make sure to use the bookmakers free bets, bookmakers free bookie bonuses and promotions to get the extra edge to stay in front and start 2019 off properly.
February is also last call for those punting masochists that like to have wagers on NFL gridiron, as the Super Bowl, the 53rd edition is on February 4.
The NBA is in its annual regular season grind and the number of markets up is extraordinary.
Major college basketball is on offer from the NCAA and do not forget to check out the goings on in the NBL league as Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Brisbane head the list for now as the season heads for the Grand Final series.
There is far more going on in cricket than we can cover adequately, but a few of the highlights include Test ODI with New Zealand and the closing stages of the Big Bash League, to mention just two. Sri Lanka is touring for Test cricket. We found over 80 markets with one bookmaker with which we checked in.
The AFLW will start its third season and could very well offer some free bookmaker bets and free betting markets.
Those few codes alone might make February an ideal month to join Sportsbet for a $501 bonus free bet and the ideal opportunity to bet with the bookie’s money.
Punters looking for a new challenge are increasingly turning to E sports, as those same kids we were yelling at to turn off the video games and do their school assignments are turning into electronic rock stars in worldwide competitions that feature thousands of players and teams in cyber competitions to determine which have the world’s quickest thumbs.
All of you soccer fans never lack for a punt and there is plenty of action at the domestic and international levels. The A-League seems like a one-horse race at the moment, with Sydney FC well ahead of closest competitor Newcastle Jets. Up north, Liverpool sits on the top rung of the Premier League, but Man City is hot on their trail and Tottenham is anything but dead.
There is also an Asian Cup final to start the month off.
The popular Mixed Martial Arts has a couple big bouts on tap, with Marlon Moraes versus Raphael Assuncao, but the must-see for MMA fans in 10 February, where Robert Whittaker will face Kelvin Gastelum.
