2008 Summer Olympics

Here we are heading into the second full week of August and things are really starting to heat up at Gambling911.com's esteemed online sportsbooks.

Taking center stage this weekend will be the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing where many of these sportsbooks will be offering bets on everything from which country will take home the most gold medals overall to which country will take home the most gold in each individual event.

Some of the online gambling sites were also offering daily matchup betting for sports such as baseball, hockey, basketball, handball, soccer, tennis and water polo.

Remember that not all online sportsbooks are built the same. Some are currently offering the most aggressive industry bonuses we have ever seen.

Another weekend highlight will be UFC 87 betting, which promises to provide plenty of action for what would normally be a rather dull Saturday night. UFC 87 features some top of the line matchups including George St. Pierre vs. Jon Fitch and Heath Herring vs. Brock Lesnar just to name a few.

"Typically we witness a tremendous surge in traffic on weekends when UFC and other major Mixed Martial Arts events are scheduled," expressed Payton O'Brien, Operations Manager for the Gambling911.com website. "There should be no exception to that rule this weekend."

Although PGA Golf is taking place as well through Sunday, Gambling911.com has not forecast that event to draw significant wagering action.

"Our focus heading into the coming week will be increased interest in both NFL and College Football," said O'Brien. "Mid August is around the time when gamblers begin fueling their online sportsbook accounts."

It should be noted that there is a sportsbook available for one and all endorsed by Gambling911.com and featured on the Online Sportsbooks page. Those appealing to recreational sports bettors, professional sports bettors and all those in between. Credit cards, debit cards, bank wires - check your favorite gambling website to see what the latest offers are (remember, they can change daily).
