Put on your punting caps or you lucky punting t-shirt, because September is coming along and there is much to be found in terms of value and entertainment.
From the first day, through the last, September is one of the best months of the year, with major events from all codes offering all manner of markets and free bets promotions.
In the waning days of August, the final slam tennis tournament of the year, the U.S. Open is underway. Punters can find futures markets, individual match markets and more exotic markets. It is not uncommon to see not just head-to-head bets, but also 20 or more markets for such things as total games per match and betting on the outcomes of individual sets
Please do not forget that Australia are in England battling to retain the Ashes they won last year. September will feature the final two Tests and the drama to this point has been exceptional. There will be not whitewash and with no fewer than 60 markets with most online bookmakers, it should not be hard to find solid opportunities or to take a leap and use free bookmaker bets to finance the fun.
All of September will feature plenty of AFL finals betting. The first round of finals is still over a week in the future and there are already close to 1,000 markets to be found. There is still time to do some futures betting, although the premiership market has eliminated 10 teams, which helps to make it easier.
The NRL will finish the regular season fixture in early September. There is two weeks’ worth of games remaining, and then the league jumps into finals. Given some of the results we have seen to this point, there might not be any sure bets, but NRL punting typically offers some lucrative dividends.
Those whose football preferences lean in the union direction has the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan and it is hard to imagine one or more of the bookies not offering some free betting markets.
While we are on the topic of international sports, there will be a basketball World Cup in China. The FIBA World Cup tournament gets underway on the last day of August, so there will be plenty of action throughout September.
If you want to avoid the rush, there are already some NBA markets open, but the real action does not start until October and as we said, there is so much going on in September that October is a problem for no one.
By now, the racing punters have got to think we have forgotten spring Thoroughbred racing, but we have not.
September has five Group 1 races and with Winx gone, the dividends have taken a healthy leap upward. There will be major spring racing action at Flemington, Rosehill, Newcastle, Caulfield, Randwick and Moonee Valley. There are, by our count, 16 Group 2 races and 16 Group 3 races. Many of the races will be open to the older horses, so keen form analysts can find some solid wagers from punting the gallopers.
We should mention that at this moment, top-flight English Premier League football is just ramping up and few things inspire the sort of passion that world-class soccer elicits.
If you prefer other than English football, there is plenty to be had, so much, in fact, that one bookie website we inspected had 11 filters with which to narrow the choices.
Major League Baseball is heading toward its playoff season. There are plenty of regular season games left, supplying thousands of wagering markets. While many of the Division races are not close, when the playoffs start, baseball luck comes into play, so there is no telling exactly what will happen.
U.S. professional and college level gridiron will feature in September, with teams at both levels out to prove they belong in the post-season play.
With all this going on, and probably three times as much we do not have room to mention, September might be an opportune month to join Sportsbet for a $501 bonus free bet.
In any event, be sure to wager responsibly and make sure to us the bookmakers’ free bets, bookmakers’ free bookie bonuses and promotions to get that extra edge to keep you in front.
