Mayweather v Pacquiao – Betting Preview & Offers

mayweathervpacquiao

Finally, the fight everybody has been waiting for. Mayweather enters the fight as favourite, with odds of 1.50. You can actually get odds of 200/1 for Mayweather to win the fight within 60 seconds, however all the signs suggest that this will be a fight that won’t be over quickly. In fact, odds are currently 1.36 that it’ll go the full 12 rounds.

It’s the biggest fight of all time historically, and financially too. Mayweather will receive an estimated £90m from the fight and Pacquiao £60m. Fans are going to have to stay up late to watch it as it’s being televised at 4AM on Sunday morning and is being shown on Sky Box Office at a cost of £19.95. If you consider that to be expensive, fans in the states are having to pay almost £65 which alongside the record capacity of 16,000 in the stadium, it’s clear to see why there is so much money going into this fight. Lots of the bookmakers are running offers specifically for the fight, and here they are:

William Hill
William Hill: Enhanced odds for new customers

It’s pretty rare that William Hill run enhanced odds for new customers, so this is good to see. New customers can get odds of 3/1 for Mayweather to win, and odds of 7/1 for Pacquiao to win. A maximum stake of £10 applies, but the great thing about this particular offer is that the winnings are paid as cash. Usually they’re paid as a free bet, but as soon as the bet has been settled, you’ll be able to withdraw your winnings as cash.

Paddy Power
Paddy Power: Free in-play bet

Paddy Power have an offer for existing customers. Bet £20 or more in single bets before the fight starts, and they will reward you with a free £10 bet to use in-play. Given it is expected this fight will go the distance, there should be some good opportunity for the in-play bet.

Betway
Betway: Refund losing bets

Both new and existing customers can take advantage of Betway’s offer. They will refund losing bets up to £25 if Pacquiao wins inside the distance.  He’s not the favourite and Mayweather is yet to lose a fight, but at odds of around 3.00 this is a cracking offer from Betway.

AP McCoy Says Farewell at Sandown – April 25th Saturday Racing Offers

AP McCoy

Most of the attention today will be put on the retirement of AP McCoy, who will celebrate finishing the most successful career as a jockey. He will love to finish with a win, and he is participating in the 3:15pm (riding Mr Mole) and 4:25 (riding Box Office). The BBC have written up some statistics about his career. He has raced more than 16,000 and impressively within those races he has won over 4,300 times. We expect to see some very emotional scenes as he permanently awarded the champion jockey’s trophy for the 20th time. There are some good offers for this weekend, a mixture of usual on-going offers then ones specially for today:

Bet 365
Bet 365 : Regular Channel 4 Offer

AP McCoy’s final race was moved forward in the race schedule so that it could be televised on Channel 4 and therefore is eligible for Bet 365’s Channel 4 racing offer. Back any horse at 4/1 or greater, and receive a risk free bet for the next televised race.

Ladbrokes
Ladbrokes: Free bets

For existing customers, Ladbrokes can enjoy a similar offer to that of Bet 365. If you back any winner at odds of 4/1 or greater on Saturday, then Ladbrokes will give you a free bet.

Betfred
Betfred: Price Boost on AP McCoy Wins

This one is for new customers only. Betfred have adjusted their normal sign up bonus which is £30 in free bets to include a 10% price boost on any AP McCoy wins.

StanJames
StanJames: Money back on runner up

Note that this one does not apply to desktop users; you must be on either a tablet or mobile device. If your backed horse comes second in the race, StanJames will refund your bet up to the value of £25.

World Championship 2015: Betting Preview and Offers

2015 World Championship

The World Championship spans 17 gruelling days, and such is the length of the tournament the winner will need to show good, consistent form over a long period of time. John Parrott over on the Paddy Power blog gave some of his opinions on some of the favourites and their chances.  Entering the tournament, Ronnie O’Sullivan is favourite at the short odds of just 3.25. John Parrott reckons that he is in a good place, and has shown consistent form over some recent competitions but at such short odds, punters will find it hard to find value there and will look for value in some of the other players. Mark Selby can currently be backed at odds of 9.00 on Bet 365, and providing he can navigate himself out of the early rounds where he has some tough opponents. Not too much activity from bookmakers for the tournament, but here is a roundup of what is available:

Betway
Betway: Deciding 19th frame money back

For both new and existing customers, Betway have an offer for first round matches. If you bet between £5 and £50, Betway will refund losing bets if your backed player loses in in the 19th deciding frame. If they repeat this offer for the later stages of the tournament, we’ll update the page.

Boylesports
Boylesports: Deciding 19th frame money back // Trump card

Boylesports are running a similar offer to Betway, in that if your backed player loses in the 19th deciding frame then you’ll get your stake refunded as a free bet up to the value of £50 per customer. The one difference to point out is that it applies for all matches at the World Championship at Boylesports. They have a second offer too called ‘Trump card moneyback’. If Judd Trump wins the tournament, Boylesports will refund all outright winner bets up to £50. You’ll need to get your bet in before his first match, but given he is second favourite to Ronnie at odds of 6.50 then it’s a good shout.

Chelsea vs Man Utd Offers For New and Existing Customers

Chelsea vs Man Utd

There is a mixture of FA Cup and Premiership action this weekend. Most of the betting offers focus on Manchester United’s trip to Stamford Bridge late on Saturday afternoon. Manchester United have had a resurgence of form recently, winning their last six consecutive games including Manchester City last weekend. Whilst the good form has come too late for them to win the league, it will give them some good momentum going into next season and they’ll be keen to secure a victory against Chelsea to rubber stamp that. Here are the offers for the weekend of football including the FA cup:

Ladbrokes
Ladbrokes: Enhanced odds for new customers

Focusing on the headline fixture of the weekend, Ladbrokes have enhanced odds for new customers. They can get either 5/1 for a Chelsea win, or alternatively 10/1 for a Manchester United win with a maximum stake of £10. Keep in mind that if you choose this offer, you won’t also receive the £25 free bet so decide which you prefer.

Paddy Power
Paddy Power: Free in-play bet

This one from Paddy Power is for both new and existing customers. Bet £20 or more in single bets before kick off on Saturday (5:30pm) and Paddy Power will reward you with a free £5 bet to use in-play during the same game. Your qualifying bet must have odds at least 1/2 and the free bet token should appear within five minutes of kick off.

Betfred
Betfred: £5 for each goal scored

A fun one from Betfred for new customers. Any new customers that bet £10 on the Chelsea vs Manchester United game, will receive a £5 for each goal that is scored in the match. There has been a total of 8 goals in the past five games, but six of them has come in the previous two encounters. New customers usually get a £30 free bet, and we don’t think there will be more than six goals to make consideration to that, but we’d like to see more fun offers like this.

The 2015 Grand National – The Ultimate Betting Offers Guide

2015 Grand National

Current estimates according to the BBC are that £150m will be bet on the 2015 Grand National which is the equivalent to all four days at Cheltenham. AP McCoy won the Ryanair Chase at this years’ Cheltenham Festival, and currently he is favourite to win the Grand National riding Shutthefrontdoor.  With around one in three pounds bet on the race so far backing him, it has the potential to be a very bad day for the bookmakers. The odds on him to win are short at 8.00, which considering there are over 40 runners, it can’t be seen to be great value. The Grand National attracts a lot of new punters, especially a couple of hours the race and that has historically caused some bookmaker websites to actually crash. Therefore, it’s fairly common for the bookmakers to stop taking new players on the day of the race. So if you’re thinking of opening a new account, take a look at the offers below and try and be ready for Friday at the latest.

** A lot of the bookmakers have now withdrawn their free bets. We’re updating the site as changes happen, but at the moment the best options for new punters are Bet Victor who not only retaining their free bet, but also paying out on six places. Betfair too will give you a free bet.  **

VC Bet
Bet Victor: (Recommended): Paying out 6 places // Non runner no bet // £25 free bet

Bet Victor are the bookmaker paying out the most places for the Grand National, quarter odds at an incredible six places, which is great for existing customers. New customers too can receive a free £25 bet, but that not applicable to horse racing. It must be used on a football bet.

Betfair
Betfair: (Recommended): Paying out 5 places // Faller insurance // £20 free bet

Betfair have confirmed to us they will still be taking new customers on the day, and retaining their sign up bonus of £20.  They’re paying out five places, which is thereabouts with the average but on top of that, they are going to have a ‘faller insurance’. If your hose doesn’t finish the race, they will refund up to £10 as a free bet.

2015 Masters Preview – Tiger Woods Returns And Bookmakers Get Ready

2015 Masters

A lot of the focus for this Masters will be put on Tiger Woods, despite being ranked 111th in the Official PGA World Tour rankings, and unlikely to even place in the tournament. Augusta will be very familiar to golf fans, with particular holes such as the 16th providing great memories such as this Tiger Woods impossible chip. Rory McIlroy enters favourite, but even hid odds of 7.00 are long, so there will be value around. Bubba Watson has won two of the previous three Masters and comes in at odds of 12.00 but it’s the young Jordan Spieth that bookmakers reckon could represent the biggest challenge to McIllory. Spieth has been in good form of late, winning the Valspar Championship, and finishing runner up twice recently. That being said, it’s always pleasing to see winners at Augusta find their form in the Grand Slam, and as a result form isn’t always a good indicator for performance on the big stage. Here are the available betting offers this year:

Betway
Betway: Money back plus seven places for new customers

Betway have an offers for both new and existing customers. Kicking off with existing customers, if you place a bet on the outright winner, and if that player fails to make the cut, then Betway will refund your losing bet with a free bet up to the value of £25. It’s not clear on their website, but new customers can get seven places paid out on their each way bets. It’s up to £10 each way, and the extra payout applies to £10 of the stake. You do forfeit the usual £50 free bet, so bear in that in mind when registering.

Betfair
Betfair Offer: Paying out seven places

If you’ve already got a Betfair account, you’re best instead taking advantage of their offer which applies to existing customers. Betfair are also paying out seven each-way places on the Masters. You’ll receive your normal payout if your golfer finishes 1st to 5th, and if they finish either 6th or7th, the maximum stake paid out at 1/4 odds is £25. Because this is available to new customers, and the odds are so long, betting each-way can be good value.

Paddy Power
Paddy Power Offer: Paying out six places

Paddy Power customers can get a similar offer, paid out to six places. The main advantage of Paddy Power’s offer in comparison to Betfair is that the pay out on 6th is not limited to a £25 initial stake, so if you’re looking to put down a larger stake, Paddy Power would give you a larger return but only if the golfer finishes specifically sixth. Most punters will benefit from the Betfair offer.

Raheem Sterling Looks To Impress In Arsenal vs Liverpool

Raheem Sterling

The headline fixture of the weekend is Arsenal versus Liverpool. Attention will be put on Raheem Sterling, as he is currently in new contract negotiations with Liverpool. The primary issue seems to be money, and him leveraging the media to push forward a new deal has angered many including Jamie Carragher. He would have angered Liverpool fans too when he said he was ‘flattered’ to have been linked with a move to Arsenal. He will be looking to impress in the game today and we favour him to score. The bookmakers are all focusing on this game for their offers, and these are the ones we have managed to find:

Ladbrokes
Ladbrokes Offer: Enhanced odds on Arsenal vs Liverpool

Ladbrokes are providing new customers the alternative to their free £25 bet the option to receive enhanced odds for the Arsenal vs Liverpool game. You can receive odds of 5/1 for Arsenal to win the game, or alternatively 8/1 for Liverpool to win. The odds are quite long for enhanced odds, and if you back a Liverpool win at 8/1 you’ll certainly get more than you would do with their normal free bet.

Paddy Power
Paddy Power Offer: Free in-play bet

You’ll need to be quick to use this one. Bet £20 or more in a single bet before the Arsenal vs Liverpool game, and Paddy Power will give you a free £5 bet to bet in-play. This offer isn’t on their main promotion page, but if you go to the market page you will see all the information.

Bet Victor
Bet Victor Offer: Enhanced odds on Arsenal vs Liverpool

An alternative to the Ladbrokes offer, you can receive enhanced odds of 7/1 for an Arsenal win. It too is available only to new customers, and although the odds are better than Ladbrokes, the maximum stake is only £5. If you don’t have a Bet Victor already, then this is worth considering but also look at their normal free bet offer.

Betfair
Betfair Offer: Arsenal vs Liverpool pick your own cash back

This is for existing customers which makes it more interesting. You can pick you own trigger for cashback up to the value of £25, and this week it focuses on the Arsenal vs Liverpool match. There are five options, including Liverpool winning with both teams scoring, Arsenal leading 1 – 0 at half time, and some goal scorers.

Euro 2016 Qualifiers Return With A Frenzy Of Offers

Harry Kane

Harry Kane is set to make his debut in the fifth UEFA Euro 2016 qualifier match against Lithuania. It’s unknown whether he will start the match but a photographer took a picture of the starting line up in the training ground, causing Hodgson much anger. That picture showed that yes, Kane will start the match, lining up alongside Rooney, suggesting an attacking style of play. All the top betting sites are looking to attract new players this weekend, so without any delay, let’s take a look at the offers available this weekend:

Ladbrokes
Ladbrokes Offer: Enhanced odds for Euros

Starting with Ladbrokes, they’ve got enhanced values on some markets. They increased the treble of England, Sweden (away to Moldova) and Spain (playing Ukraine) all to win from 10/11 to 5/4. If you don’t fancy Kane’s chances of scoring on his debut, Ladbrokes have enhanced the odds on Rooney getting the first goal from 5/2 to 7/2. The last one is enhance odds from 9/2 to 6/1 on Ibrahimovic, Morata, and Kane all to score. All of these enhanced odds can be used in conjunction with their normal free bet of £25.

Stanjames
StanJames: First goal scorer refund

StanJames are extending their ‘Just a Second’ offer to the UEFA qualifiers this weekend. Not sure whether Rooney or Kane will score first? Reduce the risk on your first goal scorer bet with StanJames, because if your selection doesn’t score first, but actually scores second, they will refund your losing bet as a free bet, up to a surprising £500.

William Hill
William Hill: First goal scorer refund

William Hill have the same offer as StanJames, with the only difference being that the maximum refund is £50.  On top of that, their frequent ‘bore draw’ insurance applies. It would be unlikely to end in a goalless draw, considering England have scores ten goals in their first four games, but if it does, then William Hill refund certain market bets, again up to the value of £50.

All The Betting Offers For Cheltenham Festival 2015

cheltenham2015

Cheltenham festival starts on Tuesday 10th March and will host 27 races over four days. There will be a flood of betting activity, and all the bookmakers are running specials in addition to their usual welcome offers. We’ve reached out to all of them and compiled this comprehensive article detailing all the offers, and organised it by day of the festival. There are a general mix of offers. Some apply to the entire festival, whilst some bookmakers are running offers for particular races. We’ve broken them out, and will continue to update this article depending on what new offers get added.

Bet 365
Offer: Free bet on the following race

Bet 365 have an on-going offer which applies to any horse races being televised on Channel 4, and because Cheltenham is being shown live, it is eligible. If you back any single winner at odds 4/1 or greater, Bet 365 will automatically give you free bet for the next race. It’s for both new and existing customers, and a maximum of £50 applies.

Betfair
Offer: 3 X free bets

On the opening day, both new and existing customers will get three free bets when you make a bet on a winner. The free bets are equal to your qualifying stake and the maximum is £25 per bet, which means that you would receive £75 in total in free bets. This is a really good one from Betfair. After day one, the offer becomes that you receive one free bet for each stake that you make.

Betfair
Offer: Varies daily

Net Bet have a great welcome bonus but don’t frequently run promotions for particular events, but they’re going for it this year. For each day of Cheltenham they have a different offer. On day one, they will refund your bet up to £50 if your horse falls in any of the races. One day two they have tablets to give away (not so great), but the action picks up again on day three when they will refund your bet if your horse loses by a neck. On the final day, Net Bet will refund 20% of your losses. Quite a bit of variation there.
