One of the great stories to come out of the Grand National over the weekend, came from bookmaker Boylesports. The bookmaker was keen to track down a couple who were dressed in full wedding attire, who apparently took some all important time out of their wedding day to pop in and get a wager down on the Aintree Grand national.

With the power of a social media campaign, Boylesports have now reported that they have found the couple who were photographed. It turns out that the couple are Aishling Duggan and Jason McElligott, who were married in Listowel and had their reception in the Park Hotel Killarney.

Aoife Heffron, PR Executive at BoyleSports said that members of the couple’s families first made contact through Facebook and last night Aisling’s father rang Boylesports to confirm they were the couple involved.

“Aishling and Jason are off on their honeymoon at the moment,” Heffron said.

“But when they get back their cheque for €2,500 from BoyleSports will be waiting for them.”

Boylesports were so happy the the pair took time out of their big day to place a bet in their Killarney shop that they wanted to give them an extra wedding present – of €2500, which reflects a €100 stake on 25/1 Grand national winner Many Clouds.

The newly crowned Masters champion Jordan Spieth is straight back out in action this week and after tearing up Augusta, he is running as 6/1 favorite at online betting site Boylesports for another title this week. There probably will be a  bit of a comedown after the thrill of him landing his first major, so punters will still be well advised to look past him and take some longer priced value in the market.

Zach Johnson is the nearest one to him in the outright market, running at a price of 14/1 at Boylesports for the win. He was good over the weekend at Augusta and he finished second at the 2012 RBC Heritage and with top ten finishes in his last three outings this season, he is looking some pretty good value. Hovering around the 20/1 mark in RBC Heritage betting are Ian Poulter, Hunter Mahan and Patrick reed.

You also look a bit further down the market for value in the likes of Kevin Streelman and Webb Simpson as well. So big value around this week and online betting site Boylesports are offering some insurance for your PGA Golf betting. Back a player in the outright market and if they finish second or third (which includes ties) then you will get your lost stake back as a free bet.

The maximum free bet refund in the Boylesports offer is £50 and the same deal also applies to this week’s Shenzhen Open where Bubba Watson is a 6/1 favourite headlining act. Again, lost stake refunds on the outright market will be rewarded for a second or third place finish at the tournament. New customers registering an account with Boylesports can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus too.

How big of an appeal was Grand National betting this year? Huge. That was clear as a photograph was taken of a Bride and a Groom in full-wedding get-up, stepping into a Boylesports shop.

The couple clearly decided to take some time out of their big day to get into a Boylesports shop in Killarney for a flutter on the Grand National.

Boylesports aren’t aware of the actual identity of the happy couple, but they applaud their sporting instincts and are keen to give them a wedding present. The bookmaker wants to make a gift of €2500 to the pair. Why that amount? Well it is the equivalent of a €100 bet on Grand National winner Many Clouds, which won at odds of 25/1.

The couple arrived at the Park Street shop in Killarney, Co Kerry in their wedding attire as they obviously didn’t want to miss out on the Aintree marathon betting action.

Aoife Heffron, PR Executive at BoyleSports, commented: “It may be a first for BoyleSports to have a couple call into their shop on their wedding day and we would love to give them a wedding gift if we can track them down. We are looking for any information at all on the newlyweds in the photo.”

She added “As we don’t know who the bride and groom are or the bets they placed we have decided to give them €100 on Many Clouds, who won the Aintree Grand National, at 25/1 as a belated wedding present but we just need to find them!”

The Snooker World Championship 2015 will be taking centre stage from the Crucible in Sheffield once again, and it is the final ranking event in the 2014/15 season.

The first round action starts on April 18th and it Ronnie O’Sullivan who is running as 2/1 favorite to walk away with the title. O’Sullivan has won the title five times before in his career and has fired off three 147’s at the tournament as well, his most recent coming in 2008.

O’Sullivan has won two of the last three editions of the World Championship and made it back to the final last year in search of three wins on the bounce, but was stopped by Mark Selby 14-18. Selby is running out at 8/1 and he goes as top seed and therefore in the opposite half of the draw to O’Sullivan. It’s actually not too bad of a draw for Selby, who should be a confirmed quarter finalist you would imagine, and then a semi final would likely be against fourth of fifth seed Neil Robertson or Barry Hawkins respectively.

With O’Sullivan unlikely to be troubled too much in his fourth quarter, it is the third quarter of the draw which makes the most interesting in Snooker World Championship 2015 betting, because it houses both third seed Ding Junhui and sixth seed Judd Trump. The winner of that quarter would then have to face up to O’Sullivan most likely in the final four. So not an easy path to the final there for Trump, who has held ground at 6/1 in the outright winner market, with Ding Junhui way out at 16/1 with online bookmaker Boylesports.

World Snooker championship 2015 betting odds

Ronnie O’Sullivan 2/1, Neil Robertson 6/1, Judd Trump 6/1, Mark Selby 8/1, Shaun Murphy 11/1, Ding Junhui 16/1, 25/1 bar

Because of the setup of the draw, you can take a nice early look at the Name The Finalists market for your Snooker World champions 2015 betting. If O’Sullivan continues his brilliant form at the Crucible, then you would pair him up with either Neil Robertson at 7/1 or an O’Sullivan/Selby final at 9/1 with Boylesports. Fourth seed Neil Robertson should have full command of the second quarter of the draw and could clash with Selby in the semi finals.

Online betting site Boylesports have a World Snooker Championship 2015 betting promotion running. They will refund lost stakes on the outright winner market if it is Judd Trump who goes on to lift the title this year. This great snooker betting offer applies to pre-tournament bets only and the maximum free bet refund on offer is £50!

New customers registering an account with Boylesports can earn up to a free £50 bet as well as a welcome bonus from the popular bookmaker.

The Polling Day in the UK General election is rapidly approaching and online betting site Boylesports have stepped up to announce their their in-depth data into General Election betting markets. With the race for 10 Downing Street looking as if it is going to be another tightly fought encounter, Boylesports are trying to help punters decide where to put their money.

Some reports having the Conservatives winning by just one seat, which would again lead to a hung parliament, but Labour leader Ed Miliband is hoping that the launch of the Labour Manifesto will see them gain further support ahead of the May vote. The Conservatives have still managed to hold the upper hand at 2/5 to win the most seats in the 2015 General Election, with Labour at 7/4.

The Labour Minority in a new UK Government is the most likely outcome at the moment, and Boylesports have made that option a 2/1 favourite quote in their General Election betting markets. A Conservative-Lib Dem coalition is the shortest priced coalition at 6/1. Any other coalition has been backed in from 14/1 to 8/1 of recent and is currently the most popular bet in the market.

No Overall Majority is now as short as 1/6 with online betting site Boylesports, having been initially installed at 11/10. A Conservative Majority can be backed at 11/2, while Labour have been on the drift to land a majority at 11/1. The two opened pretty narrow in the market, with 2/1 and 9/4 respectively on the Tories and Labour.

The Conservative party is again top the betting to win the most seats in England, at 1/7. The percentage of voter turnover is expected to reach 65.01-70% with BoyleSports offering 6/4. 70.01% or more is next in the betting at 15/8, with 60% or less on offer at 10/1.

Aoife Heffron, PR Executive at BoyleSports, commented “Punters seem to have made up their mind and have been backing the Conservative Party to win the most seats in the upcoming UK Election to no end. At 2/5 it is currently the biggest liability and we suspect that it could get even shorter in the run up to the election.”

“A Labour minority to be the next UK Government may be the favourite at 2/1 but the support is firmly there for any other coalition to take the reins having been backed in from 14/1 to 8/1 and one of the top bets with punters of recent.”

Premier League Betting

Liverpool v Newcastle Betting Preview

While Liverpool will be delighted with the recent demise of Manchester City, the chance of them banking a top four finish this season remains slim. They head into Monday’s home game against the misfiring Magpies seven points adrift of fourth placed City. Miss out on the three points on offer here and Liverpool will probably see the Champions League door shut firmly in their faces.

Online betting site Boylesports have superb bonuses available on the first goalscorer market. Just place a winning selection on the first goalscorer market and if that players score the opening goal in the first 20 minutes of action, then you will be paid out double your original odds! Huge boost that pay out to be and the bookmaker also runs great acca insurance for your football betting too.

Liverpool v Newcastle Betting Tips

It is nothing more than an outside chance for the Reds to squeeze their way into the top four and they would need Man City to keep falling apart to do so. They have blown their chances because of a drop in their own form, losing two crucial back to back matches against fellow top four contenders at the time. There was a home loss against Manchester United and a hammering at Arsenal. However, a home game against Newcastle should afford them the chance to get back to winning ways. Aside from a trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on May 10th, Liverpool do have a really easy run in, so there are points on offer for them.

Liverpool had put together that fantastic 13 match unbeaten streak in the top flight before the defeats against Man Utd and Arsenal came. They have won four of their last five games at Anfield in the Premier League and should be value for a win on Monday night. They did have an extra midweek game, having to come through a trail at Blackburn in the FA Cup quarter final replay, it wasn’t a game in which Liverpool impressed really, and they have looked as if they have ran out of ideas a bit. This one could go over 2.5 goals as Premier League matches between Liverpool and Newcastle are the joint-third highest fixture for goals in the history of the competition. Daniel Sturridge is even money favourite in the anytime goalscorer market, but Jordan Henderson is in form having scored in four of his last five Premier League appearances and is a 3/1 quote.

Newcastle won the earlier meeting this season against Liverpool, baking a 1-0 home win over the Reds. However, you have to go back to the 1993/94 season to find the last time that they did a league double over Liverpool. Could be worth leaning towards a both teams to score bet, because Newcastle have scored at least once in each of their last 19 visits to Anfield in the Premier League. The Magpies though are slumping badly, having lost their last four league outings on the bounce. They have lost five of their last six actually, and have won just one of their last eight Premier League games (W1 D2 L5). John Carver’s men have failed to score in four of their last six Premier League games and away from Tyneside, they have lost their last three on the bounce, failing to score in any of those and shipping eight goals in total.

Liverpool v Newcastle Betting Odds

Liverpool 2/5, Draw 4/1, Newcastle 8/1

Liverpool v Newcastle Predictions

Absolutely no reason to expect anything other than a Liverpool win. Newcastle are struggling badly, but given their record at Anfield, it is worth considering both teams to score. Whatever happens, even if Liverpool ship a goal, they will probably have enough to pick up the three points in the game.

Crystal Palace v Manchester City Betting Preview

Well, Manchester City will be feeling the pressure now. Good wins for Arsenal and Manchester United over the weekend sees the Citizens going into their match at Selhurst Park sitting down in fourth place. Only a win will move them back up into second, and a title defence looks nothing more than a distant dream for them at the moment. With a huge match against rivals United next weekend, City need three points here.

The first goalscorer market should be pretty active for this one, and you can double your odds on the market at online bookmaker Boylesports. Place a first goalscorer selection on the game and if the player you selected opens the scoring in the first 20 minutes of action then you will be paid out double your original first goalscorer odds by Boylesports! Great offer and new customers registering an account with them can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

Crystal Palace v Manchester City Betting Tips

Well, the Eagles have found some good form and would move up into 11th in the league with a win against the Citizens on Monday evening. Back to back wins over QPR and Stoke have seen them in a positive mood, having taken three wins in their last four. It is the kind of form that could upset a City side who have been shaky on the road lately. It has been a fantastic job done by Alan Pardew, and under him, Crystal Palace have won 19 points in 10 Premier League games, two more than they won in their previous 20 PL games in 2014-15 (17 under Millen/Warnock). Not only that, Pardew has won more points from losing positions as a Premier League manager this season than any other (20 points total, 10 each with Newcastle and Palace). That means they are watching live in-play for comeback value.

You could have a seriously look at both teams to score for a price of 4/5 with online bookmaker Boylesports, as Crystal Palace haven’t managed to pick up a clean sheet in any of their last eleven Premier League home fixtures. Palace aren’t that much of a reliable side at home because they have won just two of their last eight at Selhurst Park in the top flight (W2 D2 L4). Not only that, they are on a really poor run of form against Manchester City, the Eagles having lost the last seven in a row against the Citizens in all competitions. That run includes a 3-0 loss they suffered in December at the Etihad in the Premier League. Even with their decent form, clean sheets are at a premium when it comes to the Eagles, so they go as underdogs.

City’s last away game saw them lose 1-0 at Burnley and that followed a crucial defeat at Liverpool. So in total, Manchester City have won just one of their last five away from home now. Their hopes of retaining their league title have pretty much gone, and even the great Sergio Aguero is struggling at the moment. The Argentine has now failed to score in his last 466 minutes of competitive football for Man City in all competitions. Still, he is 4/1 favourite in the first goalscorer market. City have been weak through the middle of the park lately, and with defensive issues largely surrounding Vincent Kompany, are they a fading force? David Silva continues to be their bright spark and he is running at a 3/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market.

Crystal Palace v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 4/6, Draw 3/1, Crystal Palace 9/2

Crystal Palace v Manchester City Predictions

After their loss at Burnley, can you trust City enough on the road at the moment to pick up the three points that they need to climb back into second place in the league? It may be hard for punters to do that, especially at such a short price. Look for goals in the game as City need to press hard for three points here. Go over 2.5 goals and back both teams to score in what could potentially be a thriller.

It can be heartbreaking when just one leg of a big wager lets you down. But the realism of the matter is that it does happen, and one Irish punter missed out on a massive Lucky 63 bet over the weekend at Boylesports all because of one leg.

The 30 cent stake on the Lucky 63 (six selections) would have returned a massive payout of around €300,000, but after watching five of the six selections romp home on Sunday, one horse failed him.

It wasn’t a total disaster though as the bet still turned up a huge €32,524.47 for his €18.90 total stake, so the punter was well up in profit. The missing selection from what would have been a phenomenal day of punting was Top Cat Henry who finished second.

A Lucky 63 is a six-selection wager consisting of 63 bets: six singles, 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 four-folds, six five-folds and a six-fold accumulator. There is a 10% bonus paid on five winners with a 25% bonus paid on six winners.

Liam Glynn, PR Executive at BoyleSports said: “We wish to congratulate the lucky punter from County Meath who just hit the cross bar on Sunday and was just one winner away from winning just under €300K.

“If Top Cat Henry who finished second had managed to win, the bet would have netted just under €300 K and it would be another big pay-out in county Meath following the win of €168K by a punter during Cheltenham week.

Didier Drogba (Chelsea)

Hull v Chelsea Betting Preview

Well, the rest of the Premier League season for Chelsea is going to be about careful precision. They just need to keep picking up wins and they will get to the finish line with their hands on the league trophy. But with four draws in their last six in all competitions, are the Blues creeping rather than racing their way to the top prize?

Big goalscorer options in this one and you can double your first goalscorer odds on the game at online bookmaker Boylesports. If your winning First Goalscorer selection opens the scoring in the first twenty minutes of the match, the you will get double your odds! Great promotion and new customers registering an account with Boylesports can also get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

Hull v Chelsea Betting Tips

Rough season for the Tigers who can’t get themselves out of the relegation mire. It’s been hugely disappointing from them. They start the weekend just three points above the drop zone, but they have only lost one of their last six in the top flight (W2 D3 L1). They are unbeaten in their last three at home as well, winning two of those, but that has been a part of just four home victories on home turf in the top flight this season. In total, after their run of one win in 11 Premier League home matches (W1 D3 L&0, they have won three and lost one of their last five at the KC Stadium. So there has been a bit of improvement on home soil from them.

Chelsea are in clear ascendancy here though as they will be looking to at least maintain their six point lead at the top of the table (with a game in hand). They have been slipping to draws a lot lately, and in the Premier League, they have only managed one goal exactly in five of their last six played (W3 D3). So they haven’t had the clinical finishing power at their disposal the longer the season has drawn on. Diego Costa got back on target in their last game, a 1-1 draw with Southampton. Costa is running as 3/1 favourite in the first goalscorer market at Boylesports.

Loic Remy has form against Hull, having scored three goals in three Premier League appearances against them, and Drogba has three in four against the Tigers. Chelsea have hit a stretch of good away form, having won their last three in a row away from Stamford Bridge. They have lost just two of their last 17 Premier League away matches (W11 D4 L2) and on top of that, they have won nine and lost none of the last 11 meetings in all competitions against Hull. Will this be another case of an efficient display from Mourinho’s men, and grind out a narrow win in a game which is likely to go under 2.5 goals for a price of 4/5??

Hull v Chelsea Betting Odds

Chelsea 4/9, Draw 10/3, Hull 6/1

Hull v Chelsea Predictions

Not expecting the fireworks to be flying in this match at all. The Blues just need to do what they do, and grind things out without putting on a show. Hull have struggled for wins in general this season, but Chelsea have been lacking a killer instinct. Would expect the Blues to grind out a narrow win though.

Henrik Stenson (Schweden)

Big week of golf betting action coming from the Arnold Palmer Invitational this week. Rory McIlroy is back in action after his disappointing performance at Doral recently and he is heading up the Arnold Palmer invitational 2015 betting field as 5/1 favourite with online betting site Boylesports. Just as a note, his disappointing performance at Doral was still a top ten finish (his 11th since last season Open Championship). This is McIlroy’s first ever crack at Bay Hill but it is an easy kind of course that he should lap up regardless.

Henrik Stenson is the name which will take a lot of backing this week at a quote of 10/1, as he in good form at the moment. He has secured fourth place finishes in the last two weeks and has always made the cut at Bay Hill from his six previous visits there. Stenson has carded top ten finishes at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in his last two appearances. JB Holmes is another name who may on the mind of punters, and his second placed finish at Doral recently included a 62 in the opening round. He secured a top ten finish here last year and has made the cut in eight previous appearances.

Bubba Watson carries a strong record into the tournament and ha landed four top fifteen finishes this season, including a third at Doral recently. Watson is a 12/1 shot at online betting site Boylesports behind the two front runners (McIlroy and Stenson). Australian duo Adam Scott and Jason Day are also running in under twenties, with Rickie Fowler leading the rest of the contenders at a price of 28/1 and out.

Grab some great insurance on your Arnold Palmer Invitational golf betting this week at online bookmaker Boylesports. If your selection in the outright market finishes second or third (which includes ties) then you will get your lost stake back as a free bet up to the maximum of £50. New customers registering an account with the bookmaker can also get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.
