Most popular sports events in Ireland
- 6 Nations
- All Ireland Senior Football Championship
One of the most popular events on the sporting calendar is the Rugby Union Guinness 6 Nations and not golf betting as some might guess. This event is held every year in February and March, spanning seven weeks. The event doesn’t just take place in Ireland, but across England, Wales, Scotland, Italy and France, with each team hosting home games as well as playing away. Each team plays the others just one time, with teams accruing points for a win, draw and loss (scoring a losers bonus point if they come within eight points or less in the final score against the winning team. Points matter throughout the Championship, though it’s the goal of all teams to perform a Grand Slam – the team wins every single game and therefore makes a clean sweep of the opposition and takes home the trophy.
The All Ireland Senior Football championship is the number one Gaelic football league in the country. The tournament happens every year and is played by only Irish teams against one another. The game is one of the oldest in the country, with the event dating back to 1887 when the first tournament took place. The ending event is always the same though – the final is held on the 35th Sunday in the year at Dublin’s Croke Park. There is a relatively lengthy process of selection to end up in the event, with each of the four regions within Ireland playing their own qualifying games to see which teams reach the qualifiers for the tournament. Once in the qualifiers, teams go through two knockout rounds which whittle the number to eight teams in two groups of four, who play a round-robin with each other.
Odds and tips for online betting
When you decide to start sports betting, you need to understand what the odds mean and what tips you can use to get ahead. Keep reading on to learn what odds are and how they work for sports betting. Need info on tips and tipsters? We have you covered for that too!
Odds for sports in Ireland
If you’re planning on starting a betting career as an Irish player, then you need to be aware of what the odds are and how they can help you. An odd is the number that details how likely it is that an event will happen. The lower they are, the higher the probability that the event in question will happen. However, they don’t just tell you the probability, but also how much money you can win if you make that bet and it comes to pass. These numbers can be written in a number of different formats that include fractions, decimals and American. In general, fractions are used in Ireland, but you can use whichever of the formats you are most comfortable with – the one that makes the most sense to you.
When looking for the best odds, there are some things you need to bear in mind. For instance, while odds such as 2/1 indicate a very high probability that the event will happen, if it does, you’re not going to get a very big payout at the end of it. For every euro you bet, you’re going to get two back. Odds like 40/1 will give you a much bigger payout – for each euro wagered, you’re going to get €40. However, the fact that these odds are so high is an indication that it’s unlikely the event will come to pass. You can make this bet, but generally, you’re going to lose your money by doing so. With this in mind, it’s important that you weigh up the options when placing a bet.
Tips and tipsters for sports in Ireland
All sporting events require a certain amount of background knowledge, as well as current information on the player, team, field or pitch and more if you want to make accurate predictions and subsequent bets. As a partial answer to this, you will find that there are numerous tipsters all offering various sports betting tips online. These tipsters spend much of their time following teams and players, analysing games and results and checking out overall form and injury status. They do this in order to create an informed picture on each team and therefore can make accurate predictions on the outcome of sporting events. These predictions will be shared online so that players can make use of them, or not, as they choose. However, we don’t recommend solely relying on tipsters for all your betting needs.
While tipsters can get you ahead initially in online betting, it is always a good idea to couple their information with your own research. Using a tipster is a good jumping-off point if you’re new to sports betting or to a particular sport as they can give you an idea of what it is you need to be looking for, and what can affect an outcome. They can also be handy for finding good value bets online too, where you can make a little extra unexpected cash. Generally, though, use tipsters as a jumping-off point and then make your own betting decisions so that you are not relying on everything they say. After all, they’re not perfect and can get it wrong too, and sometimes going with a gut feeling is the right way.
