The football season might be coming to an end, although Ladbrokes are currently busy preparing for a busy summer, with The Ashes, Wimbledon, Royal Ascot and British Lions Tour just around the corner. —
Football punters will turn their attention towards the summer sports and that includes the much-awaited meeting between England and Australia, with the tourists hoping to regain The Ashes over five mouth-watering Test Matches.
It’s been a long time since England were such strong favourites to win The Ashes, with Ladbrokes making them a 4/9 chance to beat an Australian team who have experienced a real fall from grace after dominating the Test Match scene for decades.
Indeed, many customers might be considering a bet on England to claim a 5-0 series whitewash at odds of 20/1, although much depends on the weather forecast and a 4-0 victory can instead be backed at 10/1.
Meanwhile, Royal Ascot takes place between 18-22 June, with this meeting the highlight of the flat racing calendar and we’re sure to witness five days of top-class action which will include a visit or two from the Queen.
Last year, Frankel and Black Caviar lit up the stage with victories in their respective races, while there are sure to be some superstars emerging from the pack this time around.
Ladbrokes are also anticipating plenty of bets when it comes to Wimbledon 2013, with Andy Murray hoping to claim his first title at SW19 and he’s sure to be confident after breaking his Grand Slam duck when winning the US Open in 2012.
Murray is currently 3/1 to claim victory at Wimbledon this summer, although Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer might have a thing or two to say about that.
Other notable events this summer include the British Lions touring Australia and hoping to give a good account of themselves, while the 2013 Open Championship takes place between 18-21 July and Muirfield is sure to provide a fantastic setting here.
Customers new to Ladbrokes can claim up to £30 in bets when they register using the Ladbrokes promotion code MAXIMUMBONUS and bet at least £10. This exclusive offer is available throughout the summer of sport.
