Here is a look at the exciting sporting events heading our way this summer

We are moving quickly from winter into spring and will have summer sooner rather than later.

This means that, in a sporting sense, we are moving to when the real action happens. In football we have crunch games in club football before the World Cup begins.

In summer sports like cricket and tennis we have huge matches coming up and in US sports we have the playoffs in the NBA, which will be beyond exciting with the chance of a new winner with the Warriors not looking their usual invincible selves and the Cavaliers really struggling.

The fact that we have so many different channels we can use to watch sporting events makes this time of year even more wonderful.

There is just so much sport to watch that it can be hard to find the time to do anything else. There are many events, so many matches, so many trophies to be won and names to be made.

Many of the great sporting moments in our memories are backdropped by the summer sun or the glow that only spring can provide.

The only small issue can be, the fact that, with so much going on, it can be really easy to miss something you wanted to watch.

It’s not a matter of not being able to watch it, there are so many ways to record content now that can always DVR a football game if you are watching the tennis.

It’s that the date or time of something you wanted to watch just fall out of your head because there is another event in there that has taken its place.

With that in mind, we felt it would be prudent to highlight three events in particular which you have to watch.

Events that should be written down right now and circled in your calendar, dates which you can book off work or make sure you can have your friends round for. These are the big ones, that ones where champions and legends are formed.

May 31: The NBA Finals

The biggest set of games in Basketball begin at the end of May with a rematch between the Cavs and The Warriors the most likely matchup but one that doesn’t look as set as it did in recent years, particularly with the Toronto Raptors playing so well. Whoever makes the finals, it will be a great occasion and will be pulsating viewing.

July 2-15: Wimbledon

With Indian Wells in full swing, the tennis calendar is getting to one its most packed times. We have some big events coming up with the French Open, of course, on everyone’s minds.

However, you only have to look at how many Wimbledon 2018 betting offers are already available to see just how much people are looking forward to the grass grand slam, it is going to be another great one this year. Unsurprisingly, sports betting is very closely linked with the excitement around the sports themselves. Sports betting sets itself apart from other forms of gambling by mixing passion for a sport with knowledge of the different teams and players; allowing for much more strategic betting, more enjoyable gaming and safer wins. The more punters are interested in events, the more they bet on it – and, by that metric, this coming Wimbledon should be one for the ages.

July 15: World Cup Final

The biggest game in the footballing world will take place in Moscow on the 15th of July with two sides coming together and one emerging as a World Champion.
