Ayr Gold Cup virginbet

An excellent weekend lies ahead for armchair sports fans, with this week’s menu featuring seven Premier League fixtures, one of the biggest racing handicaps of the season, and a cracking dust-up from Nevada.

Here we take a closer look at what promises to be a thrilling weekend and highlight a couple of the best new player offers for those looking to spice up the action with a bet or two.

Friday September 16 – Sunday September 18 – Premier League Action

Following a respectful period of absence, the Premier League springs back into action with five of the weekends seven fixtures live on TV. Aston Villa and Southampton get things underway in the Friday evening game, as Steven Gerrard’s men attempt to build upon that excellent result with Manchester City. A win for the hosts will see Villa leapfrog the side from the south coast and, given that performance against City, they may be a popular selection at Evs with Parimatch.

City themselves are then first up on Saturday afternoon as they make the trip to Molineux to face a Wolves side who continue to struggle for goals. Given the sizzling form of Erling Haaland, the Citizens certainly have no problems in that regard and are hot favourites at 2/7 with Parimatch to prevail. Saturday’s late game then sees rock bottom Leicester City travel to North London to take on a Spurs side looking to bounce back from midweek Champion’s League disappointment.

Sunday’s double bill begins at the GTech Community Stadium as Arsenal bid to maintain top spot and bounce back from their first defeat of the season at Old Trafford. They may not have things all their own way though facing an Ivan Toney-led Brentford side who are unbeaten in three so far at home. The Gunners are nevertheless strong favourites at 3/4 with Parimatch, who make Brentford 10/3 shots to pick up all three points. The televised action concludes with an intriguing encounter on Merseyside, as David Moyes takes his West Ham United side to take on former club Everton.

Saturday September 17: Horse Racing: Ayr Gold Cup

Another bumper day for racing fans on Saturday, with no fewer than seven British and Irish cards on offer. Newbury lays on the classiest meeting, with the seven-race card from the Sunbury-on-Thames venue featuring three group class contests, headlined by the Mill Reef Stakes.

The big betting heat of the day however comes from Ayr as the Scottish track lays on its biggest flat contest of the season in the shape of the Ayr Gold Cup. 6f is the trip in this handicap affair, with a maximum field of 25 expected to go to post. No shortage of likely contenders here, including Commanche Falls and Escobar, both of whom are officially 4lbs well in on the handicap, and the defending champion Bielsa. Out on his own at the head of the market though is the William Haggas-trained, Khanjar (6/1 with BetUK). Way too good for his rivals last time out at Haydock, the mount of Jim Crowley looks set to go well for a trainer who took this with Nahaar in 2020.

Friday September 9 – Canelo vs GGG 3

The weekend also sees what promises to be a truly epic conclusion to one of the most entertaining boxing rivalries of recent times as Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin do battle for the third time. The first fight back in 2017 ended in a controversial draw, with the 2018 rematch then going the way of the Mexican fighter by the narrowest of margins. Practically inseparable over those previous 24 rounds, who will emerge victorious this time around? Canelo is heavily favoured at just 2/11 with BetUK who make the 40-year-old Golovkin 19/5 to come out on top. Whichever way it falls, this slugfest is not to be missed, with ring walks expected to take place at 4 am (UK Time) on Sunday morning.
