So if you have used up all the online casino no deposit bonus keep what you win that you had available and are looking for a fresh way to wager, why not take a look at these fantastic sports betting opportunities with Bet365?
We had a sneaky peek ahead at Wimbledon fortnight last week in our preview article and I even gave you my tips on who I think would be holding aloft the men’s and women’s single trophies at the end of the week. However, we are now entering the second week of Wimbledon and that is when things get a little more interesting.
That is because in both the Women’s and Men’s events, plus a number of doubles events, we are down to the last 16 competitors in each and it promises to be an exciting week of action as the field is further whittled down to the last two competitors in each tournament who will contest the finals over the weekend.
In the Women’s event, it is open for almost anybody to take control. Two of the favourites before the tournament, Kvitova and Pliskova have both been eliminated and World Number 1 Angelique Kerber has hardly been in great form in the tournament so far, though she is (at the time of writing) still in the event. Could Venus Williams roll back the years and claim another Wimbledon title, or will home support push Johanna Konta on to be the first British female singles Champion since Virginia Wade back in 1977?
In contrast, the Men’s event seems to be once again boiling down to the big four names in male tennis. Andy Murray, the current champion and crowd favourite, has had his ups and downs on his way through to the Fourth Round but he is starting to look a little sharper now. The same can be said for Novak Djokovic who seemed to rediscover some of his fire and energy during his third round win over Ernest Gulbis.
Have Murray and Djokovic peaked at the right time? It is hard to tell as Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have both moved into Round Four in imperious form and neither player has been unduly troubled in any of the matches they have played thus far and in truth it would be a huge surprise if anyone other than these four players compete in the semi finals against each other.
There’s Fourth Round, Quarter Finals and Semi Finals to be played this week across all five of Wimbledon’s major tennis tournaments (including the doubles events), so that offers you plenty of pre match and In Play betting opportunities at Bet365.
Remember, you can still take full advantage of Bet365’s fantastic Tennis Accumulator Bonus with Bet365 by betting not just on the remaining singles games in the event, but also on the matches in the Men’s Women’s and Mixed Doubles tournaments taking place this week. Indeed, there can be some huge upsets in these events that can boost returns on your accumulator considerably.
Cricket – England v South Africa Second Test
Just a few days after the completion of the First Test at Lords, which saw England earn a rare victory at the home of cricket, after bowling South Africa out for 119 on an incredible fourth day of action that saw 19 wickets taken in total, the teams will go at it again at Edgbaston starting on Friday 14th May.
That win gave new England skipper Joe Root a morale boosting win in his opening test as captain and while there are concerns at how England’s batting order collapsed in the second innings, the problems England face seem to be smaller than that of the visitors.
After scuttling England for a relatively low total in their second innings, South Africa’s collapse to 119 all out was a real eye opener for the team ranked as the second best test side in the world. The Proteas have a lot of work to do over the next week, and not a lot of time to get it done ahead of what is now a crucial second test in Birmingham.
Should England win they would take a 2-0 lead in this four test series and it would mean that the home side could not lose.
South Africa will be without their key fast bowler Kagiso Rabada who is suspended for this test after earning his fourth demerit point of the year following his actions after bowling Ben Stokes. He is a big loss to a South Africa attack that has already had problems removing England’s top batsmen, especially during the first innings.
You can enjoy plenty of outstanding betting on this second test later this week at Bet365 Sport.
F1 – British Grand Prix at Silverstone
It promises to be an exciting race weekend at Silverstone as the F1 Circus heads to Great Britain for a crucial British Grand Prix for Lewis Hamilton. The home crowd favourite is now 20 points adrift of Sebastian Vettel in the Driver Championship following his fourth place finish in Austria at the weekend.
However Hamilton will also know he faces a new threat, team mate Valtteri Bottas whose second win of the season at Austria moves him to within 15 points of Hamilton. Sebastian Vettel’s second place in Austria saw him extend his lead on Hamilton and for the German that will represent a decent weekend of work ahead of this weekend’s race at Silverstone.
After two disappointing races which saw Hamilton lose ground to Vettel in Azerbaijan and then Austria due to issues with the car, the British three-time champion will be hoping that his luck will change in his home Grand Prix and he will get back up to the winner’s step on the podium.
It will be the 50th time that the British Grand Prix has been held at the Northamptonshire track and there is lots going on to celebrate the fact, but all eyes will be on the battle between Hamilton and Vettel on the track in what could be a pivotal race in deciding the championship.
Currently, Bet365 have Lewis Hamilton 8/11 to win the race, with Sebastian Vettel 9/4 and Finland’s Valtteri Bottas a 5/1 shot. Max Verstappen is a 16/1 chance and Daniel Riccardo a 20/1 shot, Kimi Raikkonen at 33/1 is the only other driver at odds of under 250/1 to win what appears to be a race between the top six drivers from the top three teams.
Football – Women’s Euro 2017
On Sunday 16th July, the women’s European Championships gets under way in the Netherland’s with 16 of the continents top female teams competing to become the new European Champions. After England’s Lionesses’ outstanding performance in the World Cup two years ago, where they finished third, hopes are high Mark Sampson’s team can put on a good show here too.
The four groups offer some intriguing matches and have been drawn as follows:
- Group A – Netherlands, Norway, Denmark and Belgium
- Group B – Germany, Sweden, Italy and Russia
- Group C – France, Iceland, Austria, Switzerland
- Group D – England, Scotland, Spain, Portugal
After the group stage, the top two teams in each group will qualify for the Quarter Finals, with the winning team in each group pitted against a runner up from another group. Should England win Group D, they will face the Runner up in Group C, with a match against the Winner of Group A or the runner up from Group B awaiting them in the Semi Finals, if they can get that far.
The competition runs until the 6th August and there is plenty of outstanding betting to enjoy on it at Bet365 throughout the summer.
