IT’S a good time to be a sports fan.
The Ashes are on and the Big Bash is just around the corner.
The soccer season is in full swing, both home and abroad, as are most of the big leagues in the US.
There is also plenty of summer racing action to get stuck into, so let’s see what the bookies have in store.
T20 Big Bash League specials
BBL07 starts next Tuesday as the Perth Scorchers go in search of a fourth title in five years.
If you bet $50 or more on any team in William Hill’s Big Bash outright market before the season kicks off, you can pocket 40 rewards points for every six your boys hit this season – as long as they reach the finals.
CrownBet.com.au is treading similar territory for head-to-head Big Bash bets, offering $2 in bonus bets for every six your team hits in a game.
Early payouts are back at Sportsbet.com.au, where you can collect on BBL top team batsman bets as soon as your man passes 50 – regardless of whether or not he finishes the innings as top scorer.
If you fancy yourself as a tipster, TopBetta is running a Big Bash tipping tournament with shares in a guaranteed prize pool of $2000 up for grabs.
Palmerbet.com will give you up to $100 back in bonus bets if your team scores 160 and loses, while Ladbrokes will pay you out for the win if your team notches 170.
A-League and EPL bookie bonuses
Neds.com.au has special odds on four of the big-name forwards in this weekend’s English Premier League blockbuster between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur:
- Gabriel Jesus to score – $2
- Sergio Aguero to score – $2
- Harry Kane to score – $3.25
- Fernando Llorente to score – $4
Salute with either City or Spurs to win at Sportsbet and pocket a $5 bonus bet for every goal your side scores.
Ladbrokes.com.au has boosted odds on first goalscorer bets and player doubles for every game this week, as well as $3.25 EPL Mega Multi odds on Arsenal, Man City and Man United all to win.
That bookie has similar deals for the A-League, including an $11 Mega Multi for Newcastle Jets, Perth Glory and Melbourne Victory all to win.
If you pick an A-League multi bet of four of more legs at William Hill, you can score an extra Price Pump if only one leg fails.
NBA and NFL betting offers
CrownBet is taking on the OKC Thunder and Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday by dishing out $1 in bonus bets for every point your team wins by.
And if you place a first touchdown bet on the Falcons @ Buccaneers game in the NFL, you can get your stake back up to $50 if your man scores any other TD in the first half.
Sportsbet has a $50 bonus refund for NBA multi bets that miss by one leg, along with a similar deal for NBA Same Game Multi picks on selected fixtures.
The bookie also has pumped-up $1.95 betting lines for all NFL games this week.
Ladbrokes has boosted odds and special markets for several NBA and NFL matchups, along with a pair of Mega Multi specials:
- Eagles, Patriots and Cowboys all to win – $4
- Pacers, 76ers and Rockets all to win – $4
Horse racing specials
For the first four races at Caulfield, Doomben and Randwick this weekend, you can get up to $50 back in Sportsbet bonus bets if your horse runs second or third on a fixed-odds win bet.
CrownBet is running an identical deal for the races at the same tracks, while Ladbrokes is offering enhanced odds on every horse in the opening quartet at both Caulfield and Randwick.
If you back a horse to win in any of the first four at Randwick or Ascot, William Hill will give you a free Price Pump if your runner finishes in the first half of the field.
