The list of big bets at the moment include multiples from Betfair, first tryscorer bets from www.SportsBet.com.au, and a nice bonus bet for new gamblers at Luxbet. When searching the online bookmakers for the biggest wagers, your best selections are going to be in the team sports, where the proposition wagers settle on one player.
Though that’s the most common way to find long odds, it’s not the only way. When you make wagers on individual sports like tennis and golf, you’re betting on one player to defeat a field of 120 or more. Tennis is a little more predictable than golf, since a champion tennis player only has to defeat one opponent at a time, while the golfer must defeat the entire field all in a row. Below is just a partial list of the large wagers people can try.
Betfair offers multiples from the world of football this weekend. Choose from matches in Barclays Premier League, Bundesliga, Coppa Italia, Ligue 1 Orange, or the Npower Championship Play-Offs.
Punters wanting to try multiple betting on horse races can select from races at key events in the British Isles, such as Aintree Racecourse near Liverpool, Kilbeggan Racetrack in Ireland, or other tracks, such as York, Newbury, Hamilton, and Newmarket.
Betfair Australian has a couple of intriguing weekly offers right now. The $6 Doomben Cup Top-Up is their latest offer. Punters can have their first Best of Four and Betfair will top the bet to $6 when betting the Doomben Cup and pick Forteller or Lights of Heaven. The $5 Double Footy Favourites allow on NRL wagers. For instance, the current payout on St George/Penrith is $2.51, but it will be topped to $5 if you make the wager right now.
The big bet in sports for this week included the much-anticipated return of Josh Dugan to the NRL, this time with the St. George Illawarra Dragons. Sportsbet offered a Megabet this week called the Josh Dugan Special. If Josh Dugan scored a try in the Saturday match between the Dragons and Eels, the player won on odds of 17:35. Dugan scored two tries against the Eels, so the winnings were huge for any believers in Dugan this weekend.
That bet is past, but if you choose Beau Ryan of the Cronulla Sharks as the first tryscorer, the odds are 23.00. The potential return is worth $230.00. If you miss out on the new megabet, keep looking for the next one offered. Betting on the scorer of the first try is always worth big money.
The biggest free bet you can make is the $500 free bet when you sign up with Luxbet. Punters need to deposit $500 or more and use the coupon code 500BONUS. Those who don’t want to commit $500 to their gambling account can make a deposit of $100 and receive a $100 bonus bet, instead.
If punters place a heads-up AFL bet and it loses, they receive a special bonus bet up to $100. This applies for your first AFL bet in the 2013 season. Remember this only applies to heads-up propositions.
Some of the wagers with the biggest odds are those on the outright winner of golf results. This week’s latest wagers include bets on the outright winner of either the Volvo World Match Play or the Byron Nelson Championship, both played between May 16 and May 19. Punters also have the option of betting on the 2013 Open Championship, 2013 U.S. Open Championship, or the this year’s Solheim Cup.
