Boylesports offer England v Australia Rugby Money Back Special


This is the one that England fas have been waiting for in the Autumn Series. This is a battle between the two old rivals and England will be looking to land their fourth win over the Wallabies this year. They completed a historic 3-0 whitewash in Australia earlier in the year and they are going as 1/3 favourites at Boylesports to make it 14 wins on the bounce under Eddie Jones as they face up against Australia at Twickenham on Saturday.

Big occasion and England have the chance to end the year unbeaten. If they do land the victory then they will set a new national winning streak record. The Red Rose is a well oiled machine at the moment and they will be looking to continue their usual dominance of their southern hemisphere counterparts up front in the pack. If England get control there they will have the visitors on the back foot for long periods.

England will likely have to keep the penalty count down a bit in this one to keep the Wallabies at arms length. Australia landed a win against Wales and only scraped out narrow wins over France and Scotland following that, before suffering a loss against Ireland last weekend which will have wounded their pride. Australia did get the better of the Poms in last year’s World Cup meeting and that was their fourth win in their last seven visits to Twickenham. This should be a cracker of a bottle full of fire.

Conor McGregor v Eddie Alvarez UFC Betting Odds & Predictions

Sports Betting

Ireland’s Conor McGregor is on a mission to create some history in the UFC. If the Dubliner gets the win he will become the first ever dual-weight world champion as he already holds the Featherweight crown and would rip the Lightweight title out of the hands of Sunday’s opponent Eddie Alvarez. Given the dramatic press conference that went down between the two in the week, this could be explosive on Saturday.

This is the main bout on a big night of UFC action from New York, the first time that such a night has been hosted there since the sport was legislated in the state after a 20 year legal battle. So with history created on this UFC night in New York, the hype is growing over the night’s big bout between McGregor and Alvarez.

Conor McGregor v Eddie Alvarez Odds

Conor McGregor 4/6, Eddie Alvarez 5/4

‘Notorious’ McGregor has been seen posing in a white Gucci mink coat as he looks to grab all of the limelight ahead of the bout. There was a bizarre press conference this week, when chairs were held aloft and title belts were stolen. Hopefully all of the hype around this one lives up to the billing and the betting margins are tight on the encounter. Conor McGregor is a 13/18 shot to land the win with Boylesports, with Alvarez at 11/8.

McGregor himself has predicted that he is going to have the fight wrapped up in the first round of the event. A Conor McGregor Round 1 wager will fetch you a price of 11/4 in Round Betting. In the Method of Victory marker you have Conor McGregor by KO, TKO, Submission or Disqualification you have a price of 5/6 with bookmaker Boylesports.

McGregor has a massive reach advantage of 5 inches over Alvarez but he has never been in a fight at 155 pounds. From his opponent, McGregor will have to deal with some relentless pressure and Alvarez is the technically stronger of the two when it comes to wrestling. Alvarez may well look to take the speed out of the fight by bring it to the mat. If the press conference this week is anything to go by then this should be a humdinger. Alvarez overall isn’t up to the quality of McGregor and it’s worth having a crack on a second round victory for the Irishman at a price of 6/1.

Boylesports are running a great promotion for the UFC battle. Place a wager on the bout before 05:00 on November 13th 2016 and if the bout goes the distance you will get your lost stake refunded as a free bet from the bookmaker. This applies to bets placed on 5 Round Betting only and the maximum free bet coming back from the promotion is £25 per customer.

Bookmakers suffer Trump fallout as punters cash in on US Election betting

Bookmaker News

Just before the US Elections on Tuesday, one Boylesports punter threw a huge wager at the controversial businessman Donald Trump winning the US elections. It was a massive gamble but with the Republican candidate defying all expectations and landing the win, it was a bet which paid out huge. The person had put €10,000 at 7/2 odds, while €12,000 was placed at 3/1 later.

So big were the lump sums that the bookmaker had to cut the odds on Trump to 3/1, while his rival Hillary Clinton’s was eased out from 1/5 to 1/4.

BoyleSports Spokesman Liam Glynn said on Tuesday, before the elections: “The bet on Tuesday lunchtime is the biggest bet we have seen for Donald Trump in the US Presidential Election and now he is hitting close to a €250K loser in the antepost book.

“It would certainly be the worst political result in a long time for us if Trump manages to win the race.

“After all we did get it wrong with the Brexit outcome, but somehow we still think, or hope that, Hillary will pull through as the eventual winner of the election.”

Unfortunately for the bookmaker, she didn’t. William Hill also reported a big winner on the US Election as they had to pay out $125,000 to a lucky punter. The punter had seen an opportunity when Trump was out a 20/1 to win the Republican Nomination and was 33/1 at the time to win the US Presidency. So the punter went and covered the entire book by playing around 33 bets on Trump coming through.

So The Donald’s subsequent White House win has proved lucrative for some lucky punters and there have been reports of UK-based businessman Vincent Tchenguiz claiming $1.1m (£850,000) after placing a $436,000 (£350,000) bet across two brokers.

“I’m surprised by how everybody is stunned that [Trump] actually won,” the Punter said. Betting site Betfair announced that its biggest overall winner claimed £2m after placing a stake on Trump way back in the primaries. The firm also reported that there was £200m traded, breaking their own record for minutes taken.

Barry Orr, Spokesman For Betfair, said: “The past 18 months have seen some extraordinary things happen in the world of politics and this morning’s Presidential Election was certainly no different.

“The Presidential market mimicked the pattern of a Remain vote in the Brexit market with its confidence in Hillary Clinton, with the Democrat trading at a staggering 93% chance of being elected as the Florida declarations trickled through. When polls closed during the referendum there was a 94% chance of a vote to Remain.

“Trump’s odds officially flipped at 2.24am (GMT), seemingly in response to the Republicans winning the Georgia Electoral vote.

“The market has attracted an unprecedented volumes of bet and, although 60% of the money staked was on Clinton, Trump attracted 54% of total bets.

“Initially this was attributed to bettors being happy to back an outsider because Brexit was so fresh in their minds, however it appears that the opposite was true; the market simply could not accept that the status quo could be wrong again.”

Betway reported that they were paying out on multiple bets of hundreds of thousands of pounds on the result of the election. They have dubbed it Brexit II and there are indications that it is going to be worse for bookmakers overall than the Brexit result and Leicester winning the Premier League as well.

Betway Alan Alger, said: “After Leicester winning the League at monster odds and punters cleaning us out in the late hours of the Brexit vote, we could have done without Donald Trump being given the keys to the White House.

Bookmaker News – Betfred Preferred Bidder

Bookmaker News

If reports are to be believed, Betfred is set to win its bid to acquire 360 betting shops from the £2.3 billion Ladbrokes-Coral merger.

City analysts are suggesting the Manchester-based firm have pipped Irish independent bookmaker Boylesports for the Ladbrokes-Coral retail inventory, which had to be put up for sale in order to comply UK CMA competition and monopoly standards.   

As the Ladbrokes-Coral merger nears its conclusion, Betfred’s bid is the apparent front-runner to land the properties beating Boylesports reported €118 million bid. At present, Betfred currently has a portfolio of 1370 betting shops and the new quota would raise their high street presence to over 1700 locations countrywide.

Since the official announcement of the Ladbrokes and Gala Coral merger in June 2015, Betfred founder Fred Done has made little secret of his firm’s intentions to purchase the real estate, which became available following the merged enterprise competition review.

However, Betfred also has a significant online presence and you can still get a £30 free bet if you register via and have an initial £10 bet.

Only customers who use the promo code ‘30FREE’ are eligible for this sign up offer. Your bet must be settled within 30 days of account opening in order to qualify for the free bet. Terms and conditions apply, please see full detail directly at Betfred.

In May, the UK markets authority had ordered Ladbrokes and Coral to begin to sell off some its retail assets as the review had identified +600 areas across the UK where the merger could harm competition. The Irish Independent expects an official announcement regarding Ladbrokes-Coral betting shops within the coming days.

Maybe you could use some of those free bet funds to back Hilary Clinton in the US Presidential race. Betfred is one of several bookmakers who have eased the Democratic candidate to 4/7 ahead of the upcoming Presidential debates with Republican Donald Trump.

Boylesports offer Celtic v Rangers Money Back Special


It is the big Old Firm derby in Scotland on Saturday lunch time, the much welcomed return of a top flight clash between Celtic and Rangers something which hasn’t happened since 2012. Both have gone unbeaten in the new season of the Scottish top flight, but it is Celtic who hold a point advantage with a game in hand over their old rivals at the summit, having banked three wins from three. The Bhoys have scored 10 goals in their three games this season, so what can the Gers do about that?

Well, they will have seen that Celtic’s defence has been far from watertight and that should give them a chance of getting something on the board. When they met in the Scottish FA Cup semi final back in April, it was Rangers who came out on top in a penalty shoot out after a 2-2 draw in the match. Also, in each of the last five Scottish Premiership seasons that these two have been together, it has been Rangers who has won the opening Old Firm derby of each of those seasons. An omen for them to go and raid Parkhead perhaps?

Online betting site Boylesports are running a great money back special and this is their regular Crossbar Challenge offer (which incidentally runs on all English Premier League matches as well).

Place a wager on Celtic v Rangers and you will get a losing bet refunded as a free bet if either side hit the crossbar in the match!

This is actually a really good offer because it applies to ALL LOSING BETS over ALL PRE MATCH Markets. However, there is just the one free bet per customer, which will apply to your first stake on the match and the maximum free bet refund value is £25. The ball must hit the crossbar, the side posts do not qualify for this offer and then rebound back into play for the offer to be triggered. Register an account with Boylesports and earn a free bet bonus from them.
