England take on the Netherlands in an eagerly anticipated UEFA Nations League semi-final on Thursday. The Three Lions have been in magnificent form under Gareth Southgate as they reached the World Cup semi-finals and then looked strong in the Nations League last year. They are up against a talented Netherlands side led by Liverpool’s Champions League winning defender Virgil Van Dijk. Ajax were also sublime in this year’s Champions League and several of their exciting players – Matthijs de Ligt, Frenkie De Jong and Donnie van der Beek – are also in line to start. It promises to be a fascinating clash and William Hill has a tempting offer for anyone interesting in betting on it. It will pay you out in cash if your team scores first, but does not go on to win the game. This Golden Goal offer is valid up to £50, and if the team you back gets the first goal, you can sit back and relax, safe in the knowledge that you will be paid, regardless of the end result.
The French Open rages on at Roland Garros and we should be in for some terrific action this week as only the best players remain standing. Paddy Power will pay you out early if the player you bet on goes two sets up at the tournament. This offer is only applicable to the men’s tournament, as the women only play three sets and the match is over when someone goes two sets up. It is an interesting offer on the men though, as you do see instances of a player taking a two set lead and then falling apart. This is another offer that allows you to relax for the end of the match. Bet Victor continues to offer 30/1 on Rafa Nadal winning the tournament for the third year running. The king of clay has been in imperious form so far.
Ladbrokes and Coral will give you £20 in free bets and if you deposit £5 of your own money into a new account. You must wager your £5 qualifying deposit on a market where the odds are 1/2 or greater and then you will unlock four free £5 bets to play with. These are sister sites owned by GVC, which is keen to push more into the digital sphere after a cap on stakes on FOBTs dented its land-based business.
Mansion Bet will give you a 50% extra welcome bonus worth up to £50 when you join the site. If you deposit anything from £50 to £100, it will then add an extra 50% of that sum into your account. You have to turn this money over six times at odds of 4/5 (1.80) or greater before you can make a withdrawal. Another option is to look at 888 Sport, which will give you £30 in free bets when you deposit £10 into a new account. You just have to wager the £10 on a market where the odds are 1/2 (1.50) or greater in order to unlock the free bets. William Hill is also running an identical offer.
