Springtime Sporting Highlights: Best of the Weekend Action, New Betting Sites and Offers

Wembley Heavyweight Showdown: Fury vs Whyte

The sporting action continues in style this coming weekend, with a cracking menu of Premier League football, top class horse racing and heavyweight boxing on offer.

Here we take a closer look at what lies ahead and pick out a couple of the best new player bonuses available.

April 23 – Wembley Heavyweight Showdown: Fury vs Whyte

There’s nothing like a world title boxing fight to set the pulse racing - especially in the “blink and you’ll miss it” heavyweight division. Make it an all-British affair in front of 94,000 fans at Wembley Stadium and you have one of the most anticipated sporting events of the year to date. Over to you Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte!

Unbeaten in 33 career fights, Tyson Fury puts his WBC belt on the line on Saturday evening, in a bout which many believe may be his last. “The Gypsy King” is the red-hot favourite at 2/9 with Betfred but will need to maintain his focus against the man nicknamed “The Body Snatcher”. Whyte has 19 knockouts from 30 professional bouts to his name, but will he be able to do what no man has done before? The London native is a 4/1 shot with Boylesports.

April 23-24 – Premier League: Merseyside Derby

Hot on the heels of a scintillating destruction of a woeful Manchester United outfit in midweek – a win which at least temporarily took them to the top of the table – Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool outfit are back in action on Sunday afternoon as Everton make the short trip to Anfield for the latest edition of the Merseyside Derby.

A big game for the hosts in the title race, this is a huge fixture for the Toffees too, as Frank Lampard’s men find themselves perilously close to the drop zone. Whilst form can sometimes go out of the window in these derby games, it would be something of a shock were Liverpool not to come out on top, with Unibet making the Reds 1/6 favourites for this 4:30pm kick off.

April 23 – Horse Racing: Jumps Finale at Sandown

The highlight of the week on the racing front comes at Sandown Park. It’s all about the flat on a Friday card headlined by the Group 2 bet365 Mile, but on Saturday the focus shifts to the National Hunt game. The Grade 1 Celebration Chase takes top billing at the Esher venue, as the stars of the 2m chasing division take to the track. Won by the likes of Altior and Sprinter Sacre in recent years, the betting for this year’s edition is headed by Dan Skelton’s Nube Negra. He’s a 6/4 shot with Betfred, but likely won’t have things all his own way, with defending champion Greaneteen and Irish raider Envoi Allen amongst the likely opposition.
