Another Wonderful Weekend for Sports Fans: Sporting Highlights, Best New Betting Sites and Offers

September 08, 2022

september Weekend for Sports

No shortage of action for sports and betting fans to get stuck into this coming weekend, with another intriguing list of fixtures in the Premier League, the final horse racing classic of the year, and the opening weekend of what promises to be another thrilling NFL season.

Here we take a closer look at what lies ahead and pick out a couple of the best new player offers for those looking to enhance the entertainment with a bet or two.

Saturday September 10 – Monday September 12 – Premier League Match Day 7

It’s certainly been another eventful week in what is already proving to be a dramatic season in the Premier League. The inadequacies of VAR were making the headlines in the early part of the week, with the news in recent days then dominated by the sacking of Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea. What will Match Day 7 have in store?

Managerless Chelsea are first in action in the Saturday afternoon early kick-off, as they make the short trip to Craven Cottage to take on an Aleksandar Mitrovic-led Fulham side who have made an impressive start to the campaign. Given the turbulence at Chelsea, Fulham are likely to have plenty of supporters at 3/1 with LiveScore Bet, with the Blues available to back at 3/4 with the same firm. Saturday evening then sees a real firecracker of a fixture at the Etihad, as champions Manchester City take on Tottenham Hotspur. Will the shrewd Antonio Conté be able to devise a plan to stop the frighteningly good Erling Haaland? Super Sunday sees a battle between the two sides robbed by VAR last weekend as West Ham host Newcastle United, followed by a resurgent Manchester United’s trip to Crystal Palace. All that, and there is still the Monday night matchup between Leeds United and Nottingham Forest to look forward to on what is a cracking weekend for football fans.

Saturday September 10: Horse Racing: St. Leger at Doncaster

The 2021/22 flat campaign is now beginning to wind down, but there are still several highlights in store – not least the mouth-watering prospect of the brilliant Baeed taking on all-comers in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. First up though it’s the final classic event of the season, as the best of the three-year-old division travel to Doncaster for the historic St. Leger Stakes. 1m6f is the trip for the longest, and oldest, Classic on the calendar. As ever the biggest event of the season at the Town Moor venue looks set to attract a top-class field.

Godolphin landed this prize with Hurricane Lane in 2021, and are red hot favourites to do so once again, with Charlie Appleby’s hattrick seeking New London out on his own at the head of the market at 4/5 with Fitzdares. If handling the additional distance and the step up to Group 1 company, the impressive son of Dubawi may take some stopping. Should any chinks emerge in the armour of the favourite, there are a whole host of runners who looked primed to take advantage, including Roger Varian’s Eldar Eldarov, and Derby second Hoo Ya Maal (8/1 Fitzdares) who is the top-rated runner in the field and looks set to be popular with each way players. Throw in Bluegrass and Emily Dickinson, who represent a two-pronged Aidan O’Brien attack, and the 2022 edition of this great race looks set to be a sizzler.

Friday September 9 – Tuesday September 13 – NFL Returns

For those in need of still more sporting action, the weekend sees the 32 teams of the NFL set out on the road to Super Bowl LVII in Arizona. 1:20 am on Friday is the date in the diary for gridiron fans, as defending champions the LA Rams play hosts to the Buffalo Bills who are the favourites to lift the title this year. Little to split these two in the betting, with Betzone making the Bills slight favourites on the money line at 4/5, with the Rams available to back at 11/10. Other standout fixtures include the Minnesota Vikings trip to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers at teatime on Sunday, before the action concludes with the Seahawks at the Broncos in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
