With no football for a couple of months, a lot of you may be feeling a bit dejected on the sport and betting front. Where can you place your UK free bets at this time of year? Well, there may not be the Euros or World Cup to satisfy your football fix, but there are plenty of other sports to keep you entertained.
Let’s begin with the fight scene. We were treated to an incredible UFC fight recently between Max Holloway and Jose Aldo. The Hawaiian proved victorious with a well-deserved TKO, and fight fans have plenty to keep them entertained during the summer. The long awaited rematch between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones takes place on July 29th. Jones won their first clash by unanimous decision during UFC 182. There have since been two rematches in the pipeline, with Cormier suffering an injury and then Jones facing a one-year suspension. Finally, they will meet at UFC 214 in the ultimate grudge match. This is certainly an exciting event that is well worth using some of your free bets on. Jones is current favourite, yet Cormier has won four times since his defeat to the challenger. If you are more of a boxing fan, you may be coming down from the high of Anthony Joshua vs. Vladimir Klitschko. But there is plenty to keep you entertained over the coming months, including the rematch between Ward and Kovalev, and Manny Pacquiao is in action in July. But, if you are looking for something a bit closer to home, Ohara Davies takes on Josh Taylor in Glasgow on July 8th in what is set to be an explosive contest. It’s a close match to call, and that is reflected in the betting, so it is bound to be an exciting event to place your UK free bets on.
There is also plenty going on in the world of horse racing, with Royal Ascot only a couple of weeks away. There are bound to be plenty of great betting promotions on during this period. Common betting site promotions include a free bet if your horse finishes 2nd or 2nd to the starting price favourite, a free bet if you were beaten by a length, and, of course, William Hill currently do a promotion called ‘2 clear’ whereby you get 15 per cent of your stake back as a free bet if your horse wins by two lengths or more. These are all great promotions to make the most of during Royal Ascot. The most hotly anticipated race would be the Ascot Gold Cup, with last year’s winner Order of St George currently heading the market. Others in the field include recent Sandown winner Big Orange and Vazirabad. Another popular race is the King Edward VII Stakes, with a wide-open field, including 2nd and 3rd in the Derby, Cliffs of Moher and Cracksman. And, who can forget the Diamond Jubilee? A race featuring the likes of Quiet Reflection, The Tin Man, Magical Memory, Brando, and current favourite, Limato.
Football season may be over, but there is plenty to keep you busy throughout the months ahead. From horse racing to mixed martial arts, we are bound to see some memorable sporting events, and hopefully you will win some money by using your UK free bets in the process.
