May for Sports Fans: Latest Action

We have another thrilling weekend in store in the sporting world, with quality action on the football, racing and F1 fronts. Here we take a closer look at what lies ahead and pick out a couple of the best betting offers currently available.

May 7 - 8 – Football: Premier League Action

It’s nearly nail-biting time in the Premier League with both the title race and battle to beat the drop looking like going right down to the wire.

Turning first to matters at the top of the table, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are faced with a potentially tricky home clash with Champion’s League chasing Spurs in the Saturday 7:45pm fixture. Hot on the heels of booking their spot in this years Champion’s League final, the Reds are 4/9 favourites with Boylesports to pick up the win. Manchester City meanwhile are last in action as they take on Newcastle United at the Etihad in the Sunday 4:30pm game. At 1/7 with Betfred, they are the shortest priced favourites of the weekend.

Looking next at the wrong end of the table, Everton gave their survival chances a huge boost with a home win over Chelsea last weekend and will be looking to back that up on the road at Leicester City, whilst Burnley face an in and out Aston Villa side at Turf Moor, and Leeds are faced with a tough trip to Arsenal. Everton do still occupy the third of the relegation spots, but how will things look come Monday morning?

May 7 – Horse Racing: Trials Day at Lingfield

A cracking Saturday afternoon card at Lingfield is lit up by trials for both the Derby and Oaks, with runners from a number of top yards on show. Team Godolphin can do little wrong at present and look set to saddle the clear favourite in the Derby Trial Stakes in the shape of the smart Dubawi colt Walk Of Stars (5/4 with Unibet). However, they may not have things all their own way, with William Haggas’s promising Lysander (7/2 with Unibet) and a trio of runners from the Aidan O’Brien operation amongst the current entries.

And it’s a similar story in the Oaks Trial Fillies Stakes, as Life Of Dreams (Evs Sporting Index) is rated the one that they all have to beat for the Boys in Blue, with the Aidan O’Brien duo of Lily Pond and Emily Dickinson chief amongst the opposition.

May 8 – Formula 1: Miami Grand Prix

We have a new stop on the F1 tour in 2022, as this weekend sees the long-awaited debut of the Miami Grand Prix. Featuring a number of dramatic turning sections and overtaking opportunities, the inaugural edition of this race is one of the most eagerly anticipated of the season. But who will take to the challenge best of all? Red Bull and Ferrari have split the four races of the season to date, and the bookmakers expect that trend to continue with the manufacturers number one drivers of Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc dominating the betting for what promises to be a thriller.
