Sports Life is Over for Usain Bolt

Olympic champion Usain Bolt said his sports life is over. The 32-year old gave up his football dream. He last played with the Australian team Central Coast Mariners. He left the club after it failed to find a sponsor.

He made his debut for the Mariners in a trial match in September when he came off the bench. In his second game for the club, he was a starter and scored two goals. However, many sports betting bloggers questioned his ability to play football at a pro level. Some people had doubts that an elite Olympic runner can excel in a second sport.

Although Usain Bolt had an offer from Maltese side Valletta, he turned it down because it can’t afford his demands. In addition, he trained with German team Borussia Dortmund, and Norwegian side Stromsgodset.

He also had offers from French and Spanish clubs, but he turned them down because they were not in the top division. Also, he didn’t want to learn a new language. A bookie handicapper didn’t take Bolt seriously because they thought his football skills were lacking.

The Future for Usain Bolt

Usain Bolt retired from athletics in 2017. He is still the world record holder in 100 m and 200 m. Regarding his time training with football teams, he said that he enjoyed being part of a team. In fact, he said that it was fun and a good experience for him.

As a runner, he was competing on his own. He can only rely on himself to get better. His hard work paid off when he won Olympic gold medals in Beijing, London, and Rio. As a result, he is known as the fastest man on Earth.

At present, Bolt is focusing on different businesses. In addition, he has several things in the pipeline. He is trying to reinvent himself from being an elite athlete into a businessman.

Soccer Betting – UEFA Champions League Round of 16

We are halfway through the first leg of the Round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League , with all of the favorites emerging victorious last week. Real Madrid bested Roma 2-0 in the only game decided by more than one goal. Paris SG, Benfica, and Wolfsburg were the other victors, with those four clubs now having a better chance of advancing heading into the second leg, which takes place the second week of March.

There are four more first-leg matches, with two games being played on Tuesday, February 23rd and two more the following day on Wednesday, February 24th. The two teams pegged by the online sportsbooks to win it all are both in action Tuesday.

The Big Favorite

Barcelona is a +200 favorite to win it all, and they are a big -165 choice to beat Arsenal, who is returning a hefty 4:1 payout with a big upset. Even a draw would be a surprise, returning a 3:1 payday, and combined with an over/under of 3 goals, the best sportsbook pay per head are looking for the tournament favorite to win this one in convincing fashion.

After Barcelona, Bayern Munich is the next choice to win it all, returning a +225 payout. But unlike Barcelona, the FCB has a much tougher task on Tuesday. The online sportsbooks do list Bayern Munich as the favorite, but with a +150 return for a victory while Juventus will net a +195 payday for the win. Juventus will be playing on their home field, and if Bayern Munich can even earn a draw it would be considered a favorable result. The draw is returning the best payday on the board at +215 – an attractive wager considering the stakes.

Both favorites are obviously expected to advance to the next round, and are laying heavy odds to do so. Barcelona is -500 to advance, while Bayern Munich is -400. Remember, in moneyline wagering, you have to lay that number (in dollars) to win $100, so backing Barcelona to advance to the next round means you would have to wager $500 in order to win $100.

Manchester City will likely be the English Premier League’s best chance to send a team through to the next round, as City is a big -500 favorite to advance. They are also a +115 favorite to best Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday (+235 payouts for the Ukraine team to upset as well as +235 for a draw). Manchester City is a +950 longshot to win the tournament – far better than EPL counterparts Arsenal (28:1) and Chelsea (23:1).
The other match being played on Wednesday pits Athletico Madrid against PSV Eindhoven, with the Spanish side a hefty -130 choice to emerge victorious. Athletic Madrid shares an identical +950 future payout with Manchester City for their tournament future odds. If the Netherlands side can pull the upset they will return a +375 payout (draw pays +230).

We’ll be back to preview the second leg of the Champions League Tournament in a few weeks.

Betting on Soccer – UEFA Men’s Final -Barcelona vs. Juventus!

With the Euro Soccer Leagues winding down the UEFA Champions League Final is also in schedule for the 6th of June 2015 with Barcelona playing Juventus with the start time for the game scheduled at 2:45 PM ET with the game played in Berlin, Germany.

Yes, the Final is set and there will be no ‘El Classico’ as Juventus traveled to Santiago Bernabeau and upset Real Madrid 1-1 in a draw, but in the aggregate won 3-2 for the two games, and now meet Barcelona in Berlin for the Title.

These two teams are the blue bloods of Europe, with Juventus the Italian team with the most success, and Barcelona the team that thinks of itself as more than just a club, but finalists in this UEFA Champions League Tournament. Both teams have different views and vantage points in this final.

It was just 9 years ago and Juventus was playing the Italian Serie B with players like Marchisio and Chiellini and now playing in the Italian Serie A they are here at the Champions League Final. The team has players that have had a taste of the bottom and the top of Italian Soccer Leagues.

The Barcelona team was the Euro Champions in 2006-07 with Messi, Iniesta and Xavi, and now this will be Barcelona’s 3rd trip to the Finals as they won the title back in 2009 and 2011, and their fans feel like they should have won the title in 2010 and 2012 for their 5th title.

However, in Germany there seems to be no question that will be the favorite, yes Barcelona, while Juventus will take the roll of the gate crasher, in this European Soccer’s biggest game.

The Barcelona team will field what may be one of soccer’s greatest attacking offenses with the trio on Neymar, Suarez and Mess who have combined for 121 goals this season in all games. They are a team that is accustomed to winning, and a team that is not the least bit phased by the size at atmosphere surrounding this competition. Some think if the Barcelona team has troubles it will be with their newcomers of Suarez, Rakitic and Stegen, but the truth is their addition to the team has been incredibly successful.

The Italian Juventus team is made up of a combo of veterans and a couple of talented youngsters from other teams in Pogba and Morata. The team has won a lot of domestic title as several players are at the top if European Soccer. Several teammates have played in past Champions League Finals like Evra, Tevez, Pirlo, Morata and Buffon. The main difference is they were not on this Juventus team when they had those experiences, but with other European teams.

If you’re an avid fan, and Bet on Soccer at an Online Sportsbook, remember these tournaments can be the beginning and the end for some of the participants, and in different ways. For example the Barcelona team will more than likely continue as a unit, where the Juventus team will have many changes, like Real Madrid has a option to buy back Morata. Then Pogba is already as hot commodity in this summer’s transfer market and for Juventus to keep in could prove to be a difficult task. Then their players are aging with Buffon 38, Pirio 35, Evra 33 and Lichtsteiner 31, thus the team should be seeking younger players to refresh their roster.

Thus it’s the Champions League Final, and is Barcelona too much for the Italian giants this 2015? Watch and see!
