Coral extends partnership with Sunderland

It has been a rough couple of seasons for Sunderland having dropped straight from the Premier League through the tiers to League One, where they find themselves this season. They do however have the backing of betting operator Coral who have extended their partnership deal with the Black Cats for another couple of years. Coral will be providing betting services on every league and cup match at the Stadium of Light through the 2018/19 and the 2019/20 domestic season. On top of that Sunderland fans are going to be able to access exclusive offers from the bookmaker and enjoy promotions such as visits to their training ground. Sunderland supporters will actually be able to pick up any winnings from in-stadium match day bets in any Coral betting shops across the UK. Coral will continue to have a strong presence on the Sunderland official website page and social media channels and there will plenty of branding opportunities for them around the ground. Commenting on the partnership, Sunderland AFC’s managing director, Tony Davison, stated: “It is great to see a leading brand such as Coral showing their support for the club as we embark on the start of a new journey. We are looking forward to continuing to work with Coral, in what has already been a fruitful partnership for both parties.” Coral PR director, Simon Clare, added: “We are thrilled to be continuing our UK partnership with Sunderland AFC. We would like to wish everyone connected to the club, especially all its passionate and dedicated supporters, the very best of luck for the season ahead.”

Pre-watershed advertising regulations to be considered by Ladbrokes Coral

Bookmaker News
The Guardian recently ran a report about advertising during the 2018 World Cup and it said that one in five commercials during broadcasts of the tournament were gambling advertisements. It was also reported that the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) received a huge spike in complaints about the amount and nature of gambling advertising during the tournament. Saturation seemed to be the biggest complaint because, with the timing of matches, there was a lot of pre-watershed advertisements pushed out. Under current regulations, gambling advertisements are allowed pre-watershed, but Ladbrokes Coral have announced that they would be “supportive” of changes. GambleAware chief executive Marc Etches said there were increasing concerns about sports betting becoming “normalised” for children. Etches said in a statement: “In the absence of evidence, the concern is that this is an adult activity and young people are growing up with it being normalised. “They get exposed to it on television around sports, advertising online and gambling activities within [computer] games. “It seems to have gone too far. And for young people growing up there just seems to be a stronger and stronger affiliation between the two [gambling and sport] and I’m wary of that.” Ladbrokes Coral market director Alexis Zamboglou said that “Sports betting is enjoyed by millions of people across the UK every year and we wanted to make sure that this great sports entertainment product enhanced sports fans’ experience of the World Cup, without diluting our strong commitment to responsible gambling.” He went on to state that commercials that were produced for Ladbrokes and Coral during the 2018 World Cup “enhanced” the coverage of the football tournament for sports fans.

Coral World Cup 2018 odds

If you have already filled out your World Cup 2018 chart you will have a picture of how the summer tournament may pan out. From that then you would use the information you have come up with to move forward and do your World Cup betting. Coral World Cup 2018 odds offers a tremendous amount of variety and options ahead of the big kick-off which is on June 14th. You can go right now to their website and look at all the match outright odds for every single group stage fixture that is coming up. So it could be a good time to take some early prices on each of England’s three group stage matches at the 2018 World Cup for example. The Three Lions open their account on June 18 when they take on Tunisia before going into what should be the easiest fixture on the 24th against World Cup first-timers Panama. England can be taken at and odds-on price to win each of those individual matches in Coral World Cup 2018 odds. So maybe looking ahead, they are options to either maybe use as a banker in an accumulator, or to pair them up in a little double wager.

Coral World Cup 2018 outright winner odds*

Germany 9/2 Brazil 9/2 France 6/1 Spain 6/1 Argentina 9/1 Belgium 10/1 England 14/1 Portugal 25/1 Uruguay 28/1 Russia 33/1 Columbia 33/1 Croatia 33/1 Poland 33/1 Mexico 66/1 Denmark 80/1 Switzerland 100/1 Sweden 100/1 Bar 125/1 * (betting odds were taken on June 5th, 2018 at 5:49 p.m.)

England v Belgium

England’s biggest and most difficult group stage match will be against Belgium Thursday, June 28 and even though both of the European nations should have qualified from the group before the kick off in that fixture, it is still going to boil down to it being a decider for the top spot. Belgium are the favourites to top out Group G with England at 8/11 odds* (betting odds were taken on June 5th, 2018 at 5:49 p.m.) to get the group stage victory. With England trading at a big price to win the World Cup outright, looking more than an optimistic each way option, there are still viable options to back them with. You can look at the England individual matches coming up at the tournament and the group betting options for them, such as winning the group or taking a straight or dual forecast on them and Belgium from the group. Or you can weigh up your options in the England Stage of Elimination market in Coral World Cup 2018 odds. England are 9/5, for example, to get knocked out in the round of sixteen where they would be facing either Poland, Senegal, Colombia or Japan or 12/5 odds* (betting odds were taken on June 5th, 2018 at 5:49 p.m.) to get dumped out at the quarter-final stage.

Last 16 9/5 Quarter-final 12/5 Group stage 9/2 Semi-final 5/1 Runners-up 11/1 Winners 14/1 * (betting odds were taken on June 5th, 2018 at 5:49 p.m.)

England a strong dark horse

In the World Cup outright winner market at Coral, you have six teams trading at a shorter price than what England are currently at. Germany, Brazil, France and Spain really are the big four heading to Russia 2018 and they are all coming in at 6/1 odds* (betting odds were taken on June 5th, 2018 at 5:49 p.m.) or under and then you have Argentina and Belgium at 10/1 odds* (betting odds were taken on June 5th, 2018 at 5:49 p.m.) to lift the World Cup. So with England out at the price that they are, they can be at least considered one of the strongest dark horse bets. If England were to pull off a momentous summer and land themselves the World Cup title for the second time in their history then it would probably be all built on the back of goals from Harry Kane. The Tottenham man is at a price of 16/1 odds in Coral World Cup 2018 top goalscorer odds* (betting odds were taken on June 5th, 2018 at 5:49 p.m.) and he can take some inspiration from James Rodriguez who was the top scorer at the last World Cup. The Colombian did it in just five games and so if Harry Kane can fill his boots in the group stage against the likes of Panama and Tunisia then he could be in the picture despite England being an outright underdog.

Top Goalscorer Options

A quick glance down the Coral World Cup 2018 top goalscorer odds market shows the glittering array of talent that is going to be on show. The big two names at the head of the market are South American duo Lionel Messi and Neymar. Messi is edging favouritism at 9/1 odds* (betting odds were taken on June 5th, 2018 at 5:49 p.m.) ahead of Neymar at 10/1* (betting odds were taken on June 5th, 2018 at 5:49 p.m.) and both will be expected to carry the weight of responsibility on their shoulders for Argentina and Brazil respectively at the tournament. But there are great scoring threats around like Antoine Griezmann, Diego Costa, Romelu Lukaku, Gabriel Jesus and German duo of Thomas Muller and Timo Werner who will get pressure on them. Will there be a surprise package coming through the field once again?

Coral World Cup 2018 Top Goalscorer odds

Lionel Messi 9/1 Neymar 10/1 Antoine Griezmann 12/1 Cristiano Ronaldo 12/1 Gabriel Jesus 12/1 Timo Werner 14/1 Harry Kane 16/1 Romelu Lukaku 16/1 Diego Costa 20/1 Thomas Muller 20/1 Edinson Cavani 25/1 Luis Suarez 25/1 Sergio Aguero 25/1 Dries Mertens 33/1 Eden Hazard 33/1 Gonzalo Higuain 33/1 Robert Lewandowski 33/1 Olivier Giroud 33/1 Kylian Mbappe 33/1 Mo Salah 40/1 Paulo Dybala 40/1 Philippe Coutinho 40/1 Bar 50/1 * (betting odds were taken on June 5th, 2018 at 5:49 p.m.)

Coral World Cup Betting Odds Options

Not only can you fill your boots with so many options ahead of the start of the tournament, once the games start rolling along, and certainly the first two weeks of action are going to be very busy with all of the group stage matches, then you are going to be able to expand your betting horizons even further with all of the live in-play betting action that will be available. Coral do also offer a great feature which is called #YourCall and this is where you can create your own bets by selecting from multiple options like including a player to be carded, any time goalscorer, shots, passes, tackles and assists and requesting odds from the bookmaker on that selection. Mobile users can also use their Build Your Bet feature which allows you to get an instant price on about creation as opposed to requesting odds through the #YourCall tool.

Royal Ascot 2018 Top Trainer and Jockey Betting – Horse Racing Odds June 19-23

Horse Racing Betting
There are a number of specials surrounding next week's Royal Ascot. The most popular are traditionally the markets surrounding Top Trainer and Top Jockey, though there are odds-on favourites in both. Aidan O'Brien has been Top Trainer at the Royal meeting for the past four years and a powerful team has been assembled to ensure the master of Ballydoyle takes the lion's share of the prize money again. O'Brien amassed a record tally of 28 Group or Grade 1 winners in 2017 and has already sent out two UK classic winners this season in Saxon Warrior and Forever Together. Rhododendron, U S Navy Flag, Hydrangea and Order Of St George are just a few of the stars that the Irish trainer will be sending over. Coral are among those layers offering 1/2 that O'Brien is top dog again this year but the Cashel-based team is not the only one expecting the winners to flow at Royal Ascot next week. John Gosden will run Cracksman and also has high hopes for the likes of Without Parole, Stream Of Stars, Lah Ti Dar and Stradivarius. The yard has been in cracking form so the general 7/2 will make plenty of appeal. Sheikh Mohammed's Godolphin team won the Epsom Derby a couple of weeks ago but the operation's leading trainer, Charlie Appleby, is as big as 14/1 to be Top Trainer at Royal Ascot and Sir Michael Stoute is 16/1 in places.

Royal Ascot 2018 Top Trainer Betting

Aidan O'Brien 8/11 John Gosden 7/2 Charlie Appleby 14/1 Sir Michael Stoute 16/1 Mark Johnston 25/1 William Haggas 25/1 Roger Varian 33/1 Wesley Ward 33/1 Clive Cox 50/1 Saeed bin Suroor 50/1 The Top Jockey betting is shaping up to be a match between Ryan Moore and Frankie Dettori. Moore holds the record for most number of wins at a single Royal Ascot meeting, riding nine in 2015. He's been Top Jockey at the meeting for the past four seasons but Dettori has won 50 races down the years at Royal Ascot, including that famous 'Magnificent Seven' in 1996. The pair are backed by the two stables that are likely to dominate proceedings so will have plenty of ammunition and are 8/11 (William Hill) and 7/2 (Betway) respectively to top the charts in 2018. Godolphin's retained jockeys, James Doyle and William Buick, are respectively a best 10/1 and 12/1 but you can get 20/1 about Hamdam Al Maktoum's retained jockey Jim Crowley, even though he has a possible plum ride on Battaash in the King's Stand Stakes. Champion jockey Silvestre De Sousa is 33/1 with several bookmakers.

Bookies relieved as Royals pick the name Louis

Novelty Betting & Other Events Betting
Bookies were relieved on Friday as Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge pulled a name out of left field for their third child. The couple called the newborn Louis Arthur Charles and the name Louis was around 6/1 odds but at some places, bookmakers had ignored the name like at Paddy Power where it was an 18/1 in the build up to the big unveiling. Heading up the market for the name of the next royal baby just before Kensington Palace made their announcement, was Albert at 2/1 odds. Paddy Power had suspended betting on the market early on Friday after a late flurry of action on Albert. That was after, they announced, that they had paid out on the name Arthur before the Royals had even left the hospital. Ladbrokes had Louis at 20/1 odds after the birth and was at 14/1 early on Friday morning. Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Prince Louis has caught both bookies and punters by surprise. With it being one of Prince George’s middle names fans didn’t see it as an obvious front-runner for Kate and Wills second son.” “It looks like we made the right decision to keep betting open until the very end for royal punters, rather than suspending the market or paying out early due to the rumour mill going into overdrive, as we so often saw over the last few days.” Not many punters predicted Louis in the Royal baby name betting so it has proved to be a little bit of a surprise, to the relief of the bookmakers who feared the late gamble on Albert,” said Coral’s John Hill. But one punter at Betfair clearly had a startling revelation as someone stuck a £12,000 bet at Betfair on the royal baby being named Louis on Friday morning. Betfair's biggest winner of the day was a £3,200 payout in Leicester by a punter who bet £200 yesterday when the odds were at 16/1. But as news of the name seemingly leaked out through this morning, the odds kept shortening. “At 6 am this morning the name Louis was at 120/1, so a £10 bet at that time would have netted you £1,200," said Betfair's Katie Baylis. "Those odds kept shortening throughout the morning and by 9 am Louis was at 60/1, at 10.30 30/1 and just 15 minutes later was at 9/1. "By 11 am when the name was announced it was as short as 1/100 and we had had 12k bet on Louis this morning alone."

Scottish Grand National Winner Odds & Predictions – 21st April 2018

Horse Racing Betting
The Scottish National will get its annual renewal at Ayr on the weekend as the big field takes on the challenge of the 4 miles and 110 yards that hosts 27 fences. This is a staple of the Ayr Scottish Grand National Festival. After the excitement of its English counterpart just a week prior, it’s all eyes on this one north of the border. There have been instances of a horse winning both the English Grand National and the Scottish Grand National, and the only horse to have pulled it off in the same year was Red Rum in 1974. The reigning champion is Vicente who is back for another crack at the Scottish national. He is back as the 10/1 joint-favourite with sponsors Coral* (betting odds taken at 7:30 p.m. on April 17th, 2018). Joining him at the head of the market is Vintage Clouds who was last seen out at Cheltenham. They were both pencilled in to take on the challenge of the Grand National last weekend, but both missed so they should be fresh.

Scottish Grand National Winner odds*

Vicente 10/1, Vintage Clouds 10/1, Doing Fine 12/1, Ballyoptic 12/1, Fagan 14/1, Sizing Tennessee 14/1, Daklondike 14/1, Folsom Blue 16/1, Henri Parry Morgan 20/1, Regal Flow 20/1, Beware The Bear 20/1, bar 25/1* (betting odds taken at 7:30 p.m. on April 17th, 2018) Vicente Having won the last two editions of the Scottish Grand National, it would be a shock if Vicente wasn’t positioned where he is in the market. He was scheduled to go in the Grand National last weekend but was pulled out because of testing ground after rain on Merseyside. Owned by Trevor Hemmings (who also own Vintage Clouds) Vicente has owned this race in the last two years. After a 66 day break, he turned up at the Cheltenham Festival in the Ultima Handicap Chase and was pulled up with four to go. His form isn't great at all, but loves Ayr. Vintage Clouds Was one of the reserves for the Grand National last weekend, actually the only one of the four not to make it to post. Was beaten by Coo Star Sivola at Cheltenham in the Ultima Handicap Chase in his last outing and his last win was at Aintree back in October. He did go in the Scottish Grand National last year and despite a bit of a rally three from home, he clearly had nothing left in the tank and finished seventh. He goes as the same weight as last year. Put in a third-place finish at the Welsh National without ever looking like having enough to win it. A place option could be solid. Doing Fine With the ground drying out in Ayr the more favourable the chances of Doing Fine getting into the picture will be. He will be carrying a couple of pounds less than in his last outing where he came home fourth with Barry Geraghty taking the ride. That is something that should put him in the picture. Full of potential and experience and is a solid traveller at three and more miles, but in a stacked and evenly matched field. Can he stand out? Ballyoptic There should be a strong challenge coming in from this novice chaser who put in a decent enough run in the RSA Chase at Cheltenham recently, finishing fourth behind Presenting Percy. In the race prior to that, he took a win at Wetherby by just over two lengths from Vintage Clouds. Exciting but up there in the weights, five pounds more than when he took that Wetherby success. Has consistently been up in the top two in his races, and has been out for six months so should be fresh. Fagan Going for Gordon Elliott who has a big hand as you would expect, in the Scottish Grand National. However, this is going to be something totally new for Fagan who hasn’t been in a big field before. So there is that factor and whether or not he has the staying power to produce over the four miles. Sizing Tennessee Showed up really well in the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham over the four miles this season despite losing a shoe along the way. This is a ballsy, fearless jumper who isn’t going to hold back at all and that gives him good appeal at 14/1 each way odds at Coral* (betting odds taken at 7:30 p.m. on April 17th, 2018). Can handle the distance, jumps well and is in decent form. That’s a lot of boxes checked. Daklondike Is a well-matured stayer who isn’t going to have problems holding himself together over the distance. He is carrying decent form as well with back to back wins at Wincanton and Newbury heading up to Ayr. The one question mark would be over the ground as this is a grinder of a horse who will dig it out in tough conditions as opposed to being fleet of foot on the firmer ground. Folsom Blue Folsom Blue was a fifth-place finisher in the Irish National so has shown stamina for Gordon Elliott. He has been more settled since moving over to the new yard as well and he won’t mind the distance. The question really is whether or not he has anything left in the tank after that Irish National challenge. Has potential to push close. Outside Chances Label Des Obeaux put in a decent run at the Sky Bet Chase for a sixth-place finish but goes a good four pounds lighter for this challenge. So that’s a big boost. Looked sluggish and out of rhythm at Kempton back at the end of February though. Has won before at Ayr in the 2017 Weatherbys Hamilton Novices. The Dutchman was going well at Aintree last week before unseating his rider and will have no problems with the distance, but it’s a quick turnaround. Regal Flow is in great form heading to the Scottish Grand National including a win at the Midlands National. Is carrying ten pounds more though than for his Uttoxeter success. Has had a very strong season though and 20/1 each way odds* (betting odds taken at 7:30 p.m. on April 17th, 2018) won’t deter.


It is always a bit of a minefield on the day and the quick ground will eliminate some of the stayers. It is going to be such an epic feat if Vicente makes it three in a row and for that reason we oppose with the exciting Sizing Tennessee who just fits nicely for the Ayr challenge. Ballyoptic has a good chance of being in the picture while our long-shot hopes rest on Regal Flow.

Scottish Grand National

Three horses have won the Scottish National on three separate occasions, Couvrefeu II, Southern Hero and most recently Queen’s Taste in the 1950’s. Only Couvrefeu II did it in consecutive years. Vicente landed the win last year at a whopping 11-10 in weight the biggest weight winner since Grey Abbey in 2004 carrying 11-12. Of the last thirteen editions of the Scottish Grand National, just three winners have been over 11 pounds. There has been a mixed bag of results when it comes to age of winners recently. Since 2010 there have been three 9-year-old winners, two 11-year-old winners, two 7-year 0ld winners and one 8-year-old.

Who Will Host The 2026 World Cup?

World Cup 2018 Betting
With new FIFA boss Gianni Infantino running the governing body of World Football, the next bidding for a World Cup, which will be World Cup 2026 should be highly interesting. Infantino has already said that with the credibility of FIFA at stake, the bidding process has to be "absolutely bullet-proof". The bidding for the 2026 FIFA World Cup should have already started, but it was delayed amongst all the corruption scandals that blighted the organization last year. The bidding for both the World Cup 2018 and for World Cup 2022 are still under investigation by Swiss Authorities. You can enjoy some betting on the 2026 World Cup already with online betting site Coral’s 'Who will Host the 2026 World Cup' market. Coral are one of the first bookmakers out of the block offering a market on the host nation. At the head of the market, Canada is running as 4/1 favourites. The Canadians came up with a four year plan back in 2014 to get a shot at hosting the 2026 FIFA World Cup. Canada are hoping that by hosting the event, it will boost interest in their domestic game, one that is dragging behind that of their neigbours, America. Canada will need new stadiums built and a lot of renovations to bring things up to the standard of hosting a FIFA World Cup. Montreal's Olympic Stadium has been touted as the place that the final would be held. Edmonton’s Commonwealth Stadium, Toronto’s Rogers Centre and Vancouver’s BC Place are all over 50,000 seater stadiums. The only other current venue that comes in at the FIFA minimum seating requirement of 40,000 would be the New Mosaic Stadium in Regina, scheduled for completion in 2017. Canada's hopes for hosting the FIFA World Cup may well be boosted after successfully hosting the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. The USA have been gaining some interest in the market to host the World Cup. They were one of the nations who went for the 2022 by were passed up for in favour of Qatar, the result of that being under investigation. They seem the likely ones to host the 2022 World Cup if the Qatar bid were to be overruled. But the USA are out at 8/1 in the market to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup, interestingly having seen Mexico come in at a shorter price. The main crux of the Mexican bid is renovating the famous Azteca Stadium in Mexico City. The infrastructure of Mexico, which has hosted the FIFA World Cup twice before, probably isn’t quite as up to date as that of the USA though. So the USA have the stadiums in place, a much improved domestic scene which has grown since they hosted the tournament in 1994 and they have made good headlines at previous World Cups. The USA were one of the aggrieved parties when the 2022 bid went to Qatar, so they garner some sympathy there. The voting isn't likely to happen until 2019 anyway, because nations generally have seven years to get ready for a FIFA World Cup. Colombia have also been put into a price of 13/2 alongside Mexico, with Morocco at 16/1 and New Zealand at 20/1. You can narrow all of this down a bit because it is likely to end up somewhere in the Americas. No European nation or Asian nation will be hosting it, because a confederation can’t bid for a World Cup for two tournaments after it has hosted. So Russia 2018, knocks out European entries, while Qatar 2022 knocks out Asian entries. So you have the OFC, where only New Zealand can bid because Australia moved to the AFC and can’t host until 2034 because of that. From the CAF Morocco are strong contenders from the confederation and they always seem to put their name in the hat. The World Cup has only been to Africa once, so that could work in their favour, however it’s probably the confederation that would need the most money putting in to build infrastructure.

Who Will Host The 2026 World Cup?

CONMEBOL representatives Colombia have some interest, whoever, their plans may well get pushed aside because of the 2030 World Cup which is the centenary anniversary of the first World Cup. The first World Cup was held in Uruguay and for the celebrations, FIFA is likely to want to send it back there in a joint bid between Uruguay and Argentina. If they were to do that, it would mean that no South American nation could host in 2026. So you are basically going to realistically be left with CONCACAF, where the USA, Canada and Mexico come in. It looks to be the most viable three horse race.

How can I request my own bet from bookmakers?

Bookmaker News
Bookmakers have started to put a fair bit of control into the hands of punters thanks to online betting opportunities. No longer do punters just have to go and settle for what is on offer in a sportsbook with a bookmaker, instead, now, punters are able to go and create a bet of their own liking and then simply go and ask for that wager to be priced up. It is nice to be able to go and call the shots to some degree if you think you can strike it rich. This increasingly popular new feature of being able to request a bet is allowing punters to get as creative as they like for their online betting. The ability to create a bet is largely focused on football matches and from stats involved in them such as the number of corners, both teams to score and how many assists a named player in a match will make. You can throw things like this together, and as many as you want, into a single bet.

How to request a bet

The one thing that all of the different request a bet features across different bookmakers have in common is that you will have to go and hit up Twitter to request a price. Each bookmaker is naturally running a different hashtag for their request a bet feature so all that you would do is look for the specific hashtag and which handle to Tweet it to and just send it off. Generally what happens is that the bookmaker will then reply to your Tweet along with a link where you can go directly and place the bet.

Coral #YourCall

Coral are one of the purveyors of this and their version is called #Yourcall. On all Premier League, Championship, Champions League, La Liga and Serie A matches you can create a bet from the following markets: Match result, Both Teams To Score, Total Match Goals, Total Match Corners and Total Match Booking Points, plus you have the options based on named players in the match as well, such as shots, tackles, assists and a player to be carded. Coral also offer the feature on NBA Basketball matches including Money Line, Total Points, assists, rebounds, 3-point goals, blocked shots and steals.

Ladbrokes #GetAPrice

Ladbrokes also run a version of being able to request a bet. So there you can combine your own Match and Play Stats markets. You can pick your bet from a from a whole host of stats like assists, passes, shots, shots on target and tackles, or any combination. The Ladbrokes #GetAprice is available every week on all Premier League, Championship, La Liga, Serie A and Champions League matches. Basically, if you can’t find a market that you want, you can ask Ladbrokes to create it for you.

Paddy Power #AskPaddyPower

If you can think of a market that Paddy Power haven’t listed on their site then you can go and ask them to price it up for you. With Paddy Power whatever you can think up pretty much flies as they state that they will offer you up a price on virtually anything. So even if you think you have a crazy old creation going on, the chances are that Paddy Power will take a look at it and offer you something. Just Tweet them and find out!

William Hill #YourOdds

William Hill are another of the major online bookmakers to offer punters the chance to request a price on a wager of your creation. Again you can simply go and ask the bookmaker to price something up for you. There is a list of sports that William Hill have listed that will be covered by the #YourOdds feature, such as football and horse racing, but even if you are thinking outside of the list then there really is no harm in just asking anyway.

Back Bets Created By Others

What you will notice at bookmakers, such as at William Hill there are even dedicated sections for the special markets that punters have created already. So if you are lacking the time to go and create one of your own then you browse through other bets that have already been requested by and matched for punters and just strike a bet as you would on a regular sports betting market and make the most of those!

Make your own betting call with Coral #YourCall

Like the thought of making your own calls when it comes to betting? At Coral, there is a feature which allows you to do just that and it is called #Your Call - You Call the Shots. This is a feature which allows you to go and ask the bookmaker directly to price up a market of your choosing. This is becoming an increasingly popular feature in online betting, where punters basically can request a bet of whatever they can come up with. How this works at Coral is that through their promotions page you will get access to a ‘Tweet Your Bet’ button or you can just go on Twitter with the hashtags #Your Call and @Coral and request a bet. This is largely available on football mostly and this is where, if you think that you have the winning match and player stats, you can throw it together and try to cash in. These are obviously bets that you can't find in a regular bookmakers' Sportsbook. Basically, you are looking at stats like assists, passes, shots, shots on target and tackles and get them priced up into a bet in any way you want. #YourCall is available on all Premier League, Championship, Champions League, La Liga and Serie A matches on the following markets: Match Result Both Teams To Score Total Match Goals Total Match Corners Total Match Booking Points

How to Use Coral #YourCall

Also on offer in the Coral #YourCall are options on named players including a player to be carded, any time goal scorer, shots, passes, tackles and assists. For example, you can send a Tweet @Coral for Alvaro Morata to score 1+ Goals, Cesc Fabregas to make 1+ assists and Chelsea to win #YourCall. Once the Tweet has been sent then Coral will message you back with a price as well a link so that you can actually go and strike the bet. It’s really just that easy. You will also find on the Coral website, #YourCall bets that have already been matched up by the bookmaker and you can go and bet on them just as you would on any regular market in the sportsbook. So if there is a created bet that you fancy, then you can enjoy it without having to actually create it yourself.

Next Royal Baby Name market heats up as due date approaches

Novelty Betting & Other Events Betting
When Kensington Palace confirmed last October that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting her third child with Prince William, the betting markets have been abuzz. The Next Royal Baby Name market at Coral has now seen the names Mary and Alice heading up the market as 5/1 favourites* (betting odds taken at 6:16 p.m on April 4th, 2018). Coral’s John Hill said: “Interest in our Royal baby name betting is really hotting up as we edge towards Kate's due date and at the moment, many punters are convinced it is going to be a girl and it will be named Mary.” The baby is expected in a few weeks, with Kate already on maternity leave, but there is no news of the sex of the child yet. It is expected that she will give birth once again at the Lindo wing of St Mary’s Hospital, where she had her first two children, Prince George, four and Princess Charlotte, two. Kate’s bump has looked bigger this time around than in her previous pregnancies so maybe there is even more than one in there. You can browse around the internet and find all sorts of stuff from the shape of her bump indicating that it is a boy (boys apparently are larger on average meaning bigger bumps) to speculations over when the baby will pop out. April will be an interesting month as well because the birth could fall on St George’s Day which is April 23rd. The Queen’s Birthday is on April 21 and then there is the 29th of the month which is the anniversary of William and Kate’s 2011 wedding. Regardless of the date, you can pick a day of the week at Coral for 5/1 odds* (betting odds taken at 6:16 p.m on April 4th, 2018).
