Betting on the 2014 Asian Games with bet365Published September 23, 2014 by Mike P
Visit bet365 this week to find basketball and volleyball betting opportunities for the 2014 Asian Games.
The 2014 Asian Games were launched last Friday in South Korea, in the host city of Incheon. After being established in 1951, the games have been hosted every four years since 1954. This will now be the 17th occasion that the games have been held. The most similar event would be the Olympic Games, except that these games are limited only to countries in Asia.
Over 400 Events
From 19 September until 4 October, there will be 439 events held in 36 different sports. Competing in those events will be approximately 13,000 athletes from 45 Olympic Committees. All of the familiar sports from an Olympic Games can be expected, including athletics, badminton, football, cycling, gymnastics, and various others.
Opportunities at bet365
bet365 Sports will be providing odds on just a handful of the events hosted at the Asian Games. Unsurprisingly, a couple of the events will be men’s and women’s basketball. Ever since Yao Ming rampaged into the NBA in 2002, standing tall at seven feet and six inches, Asian basketball fans have been growing in numbers.
Check in with bet365 each day until the end of the games and you will be able to find basketball betting opportunities. The women’s games aren’t particularly appealing because the odds are relatively flat and you can’t even bet on a winner – just spread and scoring totals. In the men’s games, however, bet365 is giving odds of 6/1 and 9/1 on some of the underdog nations.
Compared to basketball, volleyball is a treasure trove of opportunities. Lots of games are being covered over the next couple of days, including both men’s and women’s. Some of the bets to look out for are whether to cover a positive or negative spread score – additionally, whether there will be an over or under score. bet365 has thousands of possibilities on a typical day.
