The Australian Open is the first big event of 2016 and it’s hard to see beyond record-breaking five-time champion Novak Djokovic. The Serbian looks banker material to get our acca off to a flying start.
Best odds: 1.8
Super Bowl 50 takes place at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, on February 7, and we think Tom Brady can guide the New England Patriots to their fifth Super Bowl Championship.
Best odds: 5.5
The Cheltenham Festival dominates the betting landscape in March and the blue riband event, the Gold Cup, takes place on Friday 18. Willie Mullins looks sure to have a very strong hand but we are very keen on the chances of the revitalised Cue Card who looked better than ever in winning the Betfred Chase at Haydock and Colin Tizzard’s stable star can win his third race at the festival.
Best odds: 8.0
Golf grabs centre stage in April where the 80th US Masters takes place at the stunning Augusta National course in Georgia. World number two Jason Day has finished second in 2011 and 2013 and the Aussie superstar looks a good bet to add to last year’s PGA Championship win.
Best odds: 9.0
The Premier League draws to a conclusion in April and although there are probably many more twists and turns to come, we think the cream will eventually rise to the top and Manchester City will be crowned champions.
Best odds: 2.2
Euro 2016 will light up June and a huge amount of focus will be on England and Wales, who have been drawn together in Group B. However, neither side is good enough to go all the way and you can’t go far wrong in backing Germany to once again emerge the best of the bunch. Best odds: 4.3
