Enjoy The Busiest Week Of The Year For Betting With A Bang At Bet365 Sport
In this article, we are going to give you a preview of just some of the massive events heading your way this week, as well as what types of betting are available on each and of course, our tips on who you should be backing with Bet365 Sport in order to try and win yourself a bit of extra cash.
The action gets under way from Tuesday with another key round of Premier League action:
Premier League Tips: Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th April
There’s a full schedule of Premier League games on Tuesday and Wednesday this week including some massive games at either end of the table including Leicester v Sunderland and Manchester United v Everton on Tuesday night, followed by Hull v Middlesbrough, Swansea City v Tottenham and the huge clash between Chelsea and Manchester City on Wednesday.
Remember, you can take advantage of the Euro Soccer Bonus by putting together a nice accumulator bet of three selections or more from the ten games played across the two days, while several bets will be covered by the Bore Draw Money Back guarantee offer.
My Euro Soccer Bonus tip is to back Burnley, Leicester, Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea to win, which offers odds of 22.2/1. That means you would get back £222 for a £10 bet, but you would also receive an additional £22.20 as a 10% bonus for a successful fivefold bet for a total return of £254.20.
The Masters – Thursday 6th April to Sunday 9th April
On Thursday, all the eyes of the golfing world will once again be focused on the manicured settings of Augusta as the world’s best golfers descend on Georgia to contest the US Masters 2017. The first Major of the year was won last year by Yorkshireman Danny Willett (who is 125/1 with Bet365 to defend his title) and Bet365 are offering some great prices on who could be the next person to don the Green Jacket.
It is worth remembering that 2016 was an unusual year in that it saw four first time Major winners in each of the four Major tournaments. Will 2017 follow suit and see a new name added to the ranks of Major winners? Or will some of the old guard who have one or more major titles to their name claim arguably the most prestigious of all Major titles?
The smart money appears to be on the latter with the in form Dustin Johnson, the current World Number 1, an 11/2 shot to win the title. He is followed by Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy who are both 8/1 shots, with a large gap in the prices then to Jason Day, who is an 18/1 chance. Rickie Fowler and Hideki Matsuyama are 20/1 with the in form Spaniard John Rahm a 22/1 shot and crowd favourite Phil Mickelson a 25/1 chance.
For the winner, it is hard to see past Dustin Johnson to be honest. The American will benefit from prodigious length off the tee and he has finished sixth and fourth in the last two Masters. He has finished inside the top ten in six of his last eight Major tournament appearances and he has also won his last three tournaments. He is the man in form and has the length and game to win here.
Bet365 also pay out Each Way bets on the top five players in the event and a solid each way option here could be Lee Westwood (90/1). Westwood has finished in the top twelve of the Masters every year since 2010, bar 2015 and has twice been second and third in the event. At 90/1 he is a decent each way punt.
Chinese Grand Prix – Sunday 9th April
After Sebastian Vettel’s win in the Australian Grand Prix, the general feeling is that this maybe the year that Ferrari challenge Mercedes dominance in the sport. However, Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas will be hoping that they can reclaim the top two spots on the podium at this weekend’s Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai.
The feeling is the new Ferrari engine, which is also being run by the Haas team, is now on a par with Mercedes offering and that the two Mercedes drivers may not have things all their own way this season in quite the same way as they have done in the past three years or so.
Despite Ferrari’s win in Australia, Lewis Hamilton remains the 5/4 favourite to win the Chinese Grand Prix with Sebastian Vettel 6/4. They are the clear leaders ahead of Hamilton’s team mate Valtteri Bottas who is a 13/2 shot and Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen who is an 8/1 chance. Outside of this four you are looking at outsiders with the Red Bulls of Max Verstappen (18/1) and Daniele Ricciardo (22/1) next.
A good outside tip could be to back Romain Grosjean at 1000/1 as an each way option. Haas use the Ferrari engine and they feel it is on par with Mercedes for speed. Grosjean qualified in sixth in Australia and was running seventh before he was forced to retire. It’s clear the Haas car has speed but perhaps lacks reliability, but if they can sort that then a podium place may not be beyond them.
You can enjoy a host of different betting markets, plus In Play betting live on the race on Sunday at Bet365 Sport.
And it is worth noting that I am only briefly mentioning that the County Championship season gets under way on the 7th April for all cricket fans (with plenty of betting to enjoy throughout the season in all formats of the game at Bet365).
Additionally, Tennis fans will enjoy the Davis Cup Quarter Finals taking place from Friday 7th to Sunday 9th April, including France taking on Great Britain, Australia v the USA, Belgium v Italy and favourites Serbia facing Spain.
With so many huge sporting events taking place, it is easy to see why bookmaking sites are bracing themselves for one of their biggest weeks of the year and remember you can enjoy all the top betting, great value odds, superb promotions and of course In Play betting on a wide range of these events all at Bet365 Sport.
