Capping the worst day on the sports betting calendar

Jul 17, 2013 |
With Major League Baseball resuming regularly scheduled ball games this Friday, the first day following the All-Star Game represents the quietest day on the sports betting calendar.

Even the Tour de France had a bit of an off day. Wednesday in the Tour means it's Stage 17, which represents a timed trial in the celebrated cycling event. In case you missed it, Christopher Froome won the stage to extend his overall lead and is now -2,000 (Bet365) to win outight.
