There was a huge winner on the horses lastweek after playing a €30 bet and defying the 1258/1 odds that was riding on it. The bet was a fivefold accumulator on the horses from Thursday’s action at Wolverhampton, Worcester and Sandown, placed with Boylesports.

The lucky County Meath punters got things kicked off as Manhattan Skyline won the 2 pm at Wolverhampton having been backed a good early price of 15/8 with Boylesports. There was another early price boost winner in the bet, with Handbell coming home at 10/11 in the 2.30pm also from Wolverhampton.

Wins at Sandown for Tawwaaq and Who Dare Wins were topped off by Club And Trumps at Worcester. Those three ended up drifting to longer odds than their respective early prices, but the punter won’t be complaining about that after they still landed an extra €21,128.55 in special offer returns bringing their total winnings to €37,772.11.

Liam Glynn, Boylesports’ spokesperson said: “We would like to congratulate the Co. Meath punter on their savvy selections as they turned their €30 into a whopping €37,772.11.”

He added “July continues to see Boylesports getting bashed by the punter with this big win following on from a Monaghan customer who turned their Lucky 15 into a whopping €32.8K earlier in the month.”

There is some expansion on the cards for online betting site Boylesports who are looking to break out into the Asian market next year. There is a lot of expansion plans from the bookmaker who are also looking at ways to get into Eastern Europe and West Africa according to their commercial director Brendan Hughes.

Hughes said: “We are actively looking at emerging markets.

“We already have a digital development and customer management team in Manila. It makes sense to be a launchpad to establish an Asian business.”

Boylesports currently employs 90 people in Manila from its overall total of 1,700 employees who are spread across Ireland, Britain and Gibraltar.

Hughes said: “The Asian gaming market is worth somewhere between $30 billion and $100 billion and it is growing by 15 percent a year. It’s a complex market. They bet on sports in different ways to Europe. They are more into live casino experiences online too.

“We will need to develop different products to the Irish and British markets. The next step is to build a team out there to identify significant opportunities.”

He confirmed that Boylesports were looking to hire a management team to develop its Asian business and planned to conduct market research there.

England will be looking to put Australia to the sword by racing out to a 2-0 lead in the Ashes series when the two nations meet for the Second Test. Online betting site Boylesports are once again offering punters some insurance for the meeting as lost stake refunds will be paid out on the Second Test Top Run Scorer markets if England’s Joe Root or Australia’s David Warner top scorers for their country.

Joe Root was the star of the England batting show last time around and is the favourite in the Top England batsman market, followed by Alastair Cook at 4/1 who could use a good innings, Ian Bell and Adam Lyth at 5/1 then Gary Ballance at 6/1. Back a Top England Batsman selection and if it is Joe Root who top scores for England in the first innings then you will get a free bet.

The story is the same over on the side of the tourists. Shane Watson has been kicked to the kerb after continuing to struggle for form, leaving the highly impressive Steve Smith and David Warner as joint 3/1 favourites in the Top Australia Batsman market, followed by Chris Rogers and Michael Clarke at 4/1 then Shaun Marsh at fives. If Warner top scores for the Australians in the first innings, then losing bets on the market will be refunded with a free bet.

Whoever you are eyeing up in the top batsman markets for the second test which starts on Thursday, head over to online betting site Boylesports for some fantastic coverage. New customer opening an account with them can earn up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus too.

Britain’s Andy Murray is moving nicely through the Wimbledon draw after overcoming a shoulder problem in his third round tie against Andreas Seppi. After winning the first two sets comfortably, Murray was struggling in the third against the Italian, going down 1-6 before having to receive treatment in the fourth set. After losing six games in a row, Murray rattled off six in a row himself to cruise to a 6-1 win in the fourth.

Murray now moves on to face Ivo Karlovic in the fourth round. Murray has faced the veteran Croatian five times before on the ATP and Murray has won all five of them. Their last meeting happened to beat Wimbledon back in 2012 in the second round when Murray won 3-1 to progress. Murray has dropped a set in three of his five matches against Karlovic and a Murray 3-1 option in Set Betting is trading at 3/1 with Boylesports.

Murray to win 3-0 can be backed at 4/5 with the bookmaker. Karlovic came through a four-set victory over Jo Wilfried-Tsonga in the third round to set up the clash with Murray. The world number 223 took gruelling 7-6 wins in each of his set victories against the Frenchman. The Croatian does bring a massive shotgun serve to the table, but Murray has been returning superbly so far in the tournament and should be able to combat it.

This is the first time that Karlovic has been past the second round of Wimbledon since his run to the quarter-finals in 2009. He has one title to his name this season winning the Delray Beach Open in Florida back in mid-February, beating Donald Young in the final of the ATP World Tour 250 event. Karlovic is a 7/1 quote to beat Murray, with the Brit at 1/12 odds on to book a quarter-final berth.

Online betting site Boylesports are running a great Wimbledon betting promotion. Get a bet down on any match in the men’s draw at Wimbledon and if your player loses the match in the fifth set, then they will refund your lost stake as a free bet up to the value of £25.

There is nothing worse than watching a tennis bet go down in the final set. It is a tough pill to swallow having backed a player in a match and then seeing them go all the way to lose out in a deciding set in a match. There have been some great five-set thrillers so far in the men’s draw, notably Marin Cilic’s epic 12-10 win over John Isner in the fifth set of their third round clash.

His fourth round opponent Denis Kudla also needed five sets in he third round to make it through while Britain’s James Ward suffered a heartbreaking fifth set defeat in his third round clash with Vasek Pospisil, losing 8-6 in the final set. How about the fifth set thriller in the all-French affair between Gael Monfils and Gilles Simon, the latter winning through?

Those five set battles crop up and imagine having lost money on the likes of Isner and Ward in their epic battles. Well, online betting site Boylesports have some great Wimbledon betting insurance in place to cushion some of the blow of seeing such a thing happen.

Place a bet on any men’s match at Wimbledon and if your player loses the match in the fifth set, then you will get your lost stake refunded as a free bet from Boylesports. The maximum refund in the Boylesports Wimbledon Money Back Special is £25 and new customers opening an account with the bookmaker can earn up to £50 worth of free bets as a welcome bonus.

Irish UFC fighter Conor McGregor will be stepping out to take on Jose Aldo in Las Vegas on July 11th for the featherweight crown. There has already been some great verbal sparring between the two ahead of their Octagon clash, with McGregor telling the Brazilian fighter to just act like a man and suck up his bruised rib.

The injury though could force Aldo out of the fight, even though McGregor mocked his opponent by telling him that he wouldn’t be going for ribs, he will be gunning for his chin instead. The UFC have lined up Chad Mendes as a replacement to take on McGregor if Aldo has to withdrawal. There is a lot of pride and money at stake in the mega-fight and one punter in Dublin has thrown a lot of money at McGregor.

A five-figure bet has gone down on McGregor to win the title fight, the punter placing €11,000 on McGregor to defeat Jose Aldo at 8/11 with Boylesports. That will return an €8,000 profit if the Irishman leaves Las Vegas victorious. Jose Aldo has been eased out to Evens from 5/6 following his rib issue.

Liam Glynn, BoyleSports’ spokesperson said: “Conor McGregor is all the rage to win his upcoming UFC match against Jose Aldo and if he manages to win, BoyleSports will be hit with a six figure loss.”

He added “One punter certainly has faith in The Notorious, having placed €11K on the UFC fighter on Friday morning and our traders are expecting the current 8/11 available on McGregor to defeat Jose Aldo to dry up sooner rather than later judging by the latest surge of support.”

Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova are two of the biggest names on show at Wimbledon against this year. Both are former champions as well, Sharapova winning the title for the only previous time back in 2014, but again will be one of the front-runners in the women’s draw for this year’s edition.

Roger Federer has won the title seven times before in his career and he is looking for an amazing eighth title there and aiming to go one step further than his defeat in last year’s final. Federer’s recent win at Halle shows that the old master still has it in him to win titles and he will be heading to Wimbledon full of confidence again.

Online betting site Boylesports are offering some money back insurance on both the men’s and women’s Wimbledon 2015 draws. Any pre-tournament bets on the men’s draw will be refunded (up to the maximum value of  £25) if Roger Federer wins the championship.

Over in the women’s draw if Maria Sharapova wins the title then losing pre-tournament bets will be refunded to the same maximum value. This offer is open to both mobile and desktop customers and both new and existing customers can take advantage of the Wimbledon promotion, which closes Monday 29th June at 10am.

Well, what a season it could turn out to be for Jordan Spieth. The 2015 Masters Champion is now lined up for a possible shot at back to back majors. After landing a T2 at the 2014 Masters, he went on to card a solid T17 at the US Open. So can he go much better than that twelve months on and land back to back majors for the start of the season? Of course, no matter how good of a player you are, landing back to back wins at Majors is a tough thing to pull off.

What adds an air of unpredictability about the 2015 US Open is where it is being played. Chambers Bay is a pretty new course, and everyone seems to be split on whether it was a brave, innovative move to send the US Open there or one of folly. Players have been trying to get as much early practice in on the course as possible, which has long rolling fairways and is pretty much a lush links course.

The greens are huge, the fairways are wide and there are going to be some massive elevation changes to deal with. This is the first time the US Open has been held up in the Pacific Northwest and the course doesn’t even have a permanent clubhouse yet because it was only constructed in 2007. The course is a par 70 but the 1st and 18th holes will switch between par four and par five across the event.

So the winner of the US Open 2015 could come down to who can adapt the quickest. The course is likely to play like four different courses on each day of the event, so thinking on the fly and some rewards for bravery are going to pay off and that should play Spieth into the spotlight. The FedExCup leader has carded two top-three finishes in his last three events (T2 Crowne Plaza and T3 at the Memorial) and that combined with his wins at the Hero World Challenge and the Masters, plus a second place finish at the Valero Texas Open.

That’s nine top ten finishes for Spieth this season from sixteen events two firsts, two seconds and one-third. Spieth is running at a 2/1 quote with online betting site Boylesports to take a top 5 finish at the US Open 2015 while he is running at a quote of even money to secure a top ten finish at Chambers Bay. With outright favourite Rory McIlroy having fallen into some bouts of inconsistency lately on the European PGA Tour, Spieth may look a little more value for punters out of the only two men in the field who are in single figures in US Open 2015 betting.

US Open 2015 Betting Odds

Rory Mcilroy 7/1, Jordan Spieth 9/1, Phil Mickelson 16/1, Justin Rose 20/1, Dustin Johnson 20/1, Rickie Fowler 20/1, Henrik Stenson 28/1, Hideki Matsuyama 33/2, Bubba Watson 35/1 Adam Scott 33/1, Sergio Garcia 35/1, 40/1 bar

You can take advantage of some good insurance running at online betting site Boylesports for your US Open 2015 betting. Place a pre-tournament wager on a player and if they end up finishing second or third at the US Open 2015, then you will get your lost stake back as a free bet, up to the value of £50.

Bookmaker Boylesports were again paying out this week, after a punter landed over €15,000 after picking just three numbers in this week’s Euromillions draw. The stake on the bet was €10 and consisted of the three numbers 5, 9 and 17.

All three rolled out and totalled a wonderful €15,010 return. According to Boylesports, if the three numbers have been picked just as a regular National Lottery draw selection, then the numbers would have returned a paltry €11.

Aoife Heffron, PR Executive at BoyleSports, said: “BoyleSports want to offer our sincere congratulations to the lucky Cork punter who grabbed €15,010 and wish them all the best whilst enjoying their winnings.

“We have seen an influx of punters doing their Lotto numbers with BoyleSports and we suspect it’s winnings like this that has enticed customers to come into our stores to do their lucky numbers.”

It is going to be a busy weekend of Euro 2016 qualification action over the weekend and Friday night sees a clutch of interesting games going off. One game in particular comes from Latvia, to where the Netherlands travel in search of a win to bolster their chances of trying to make it to next summer’s finals.

The Netherlands are trailing the Czech Republic and Iceland badly in the group and will be desperate for a big three points to help their cause. Given that they have already beaten Latvia 6-0 in the group, it’s likely that the Dutch will get the points on the board. Group rivals Turkey, who lie just a couple of points behind the Dutch have a winnable looking match as they take on group outsiders Kazakhstan, and a win for the Turks would put some pressure on the Netherlands if the Dutch fail to win their game.

That’s all going on in Group A, while in Group B there is a top of the table clash in Cardiff between Wales and Belgium. Both sit on eleven points and with Israel just two points back of both of them, it’s not a game either side will want to lose. The Red Devils go as favourites for the win though, the Welsh not being helped out with defensive injuries.

Online betting site Boylesports are running an enhanced odds boost for Friday night’s Euro 2016 qualification action.

Back a treble of Holland -1, Turkey -1 and Belgium all to win at an enhanced odds price of 6/1, up from 5/1. The maximum stake in this offer is £100 and it is open to both new and existing customers.
