In a year that seems destined to be a good one for online sports betting, there is one week in the near future that seems likely to stand out, and that too solely for the sheer number of events lined up during that period. The week in question at this point in time is the first week of May 2015. And if you want to know why this week is special, all you need to do is check out the sheer number of events scheduled for that period. There are some medium-sized ones, some fairly big ones, and one monster of an event, at least by online sports betting standards.
For starters, 2nd May is the day when the face-off between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao, two big draws in the world of boxing, is slated to happen. The magnitude of the event can be gauged by one single piece of statistic: online sportsbooks are already on overdrive with regard to bets on the fight, and it is still a good two months away!
And then there are the other events apart from the bout slated for the week. Take football and that is the period when the action is slowly reaching a deafening crescendo as the teams head into the final stretch of their domestic league commitments. That is when, unless one team is so far ahead of the rest that their leadership is unquestionable, most teams are taking that last stand in the league title tilt. Come to the USA and there are the NBA and NHL playoffs scheduled in that time period.
And of course finally there is that all-American favorite, baseball. And it cannot get any more heavy duty than a game featuring the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees, and that game is scheduled for the first week of May this year, 2nd of May to be precise. So that is why we are calling that week the Action Overload Week, and you would definitely be a happy person knowing the field is open for you to place your sports bets on.
