Premier League Trophy
English Premier League – Until 12th May 2019
The Premier League is the biggest sporting competition in terms of revenue and also the number of people that are watching around the globe. This year it has been very close right up at the top with Liverpool and Manchester City that are going head to head for the title.
From a betting perspective the Premier League is just massive: in the UK 70% of the bets are placed on football and around 3/4 of those are wagered on the Premier League. So this event alone is responsible for roughly half of all the bets that are placed in Britain. If you are betting on the Premier League consistently, you would be mad in not taking advantage of the many offers and odds enhancement promotions that are available from leading betting sites.

FA Cup Final – Saturday 18th May
The 2019 FA Cup might turn out to be one of the best in the last few years, yet the expectations are that Man City will simply dominate. In 2012 through the same outcome was expected by Wigan were able to produce one of the biggest upset of the last 30 years of the competition.
Watford are undoubtedly a better side compared with that Wigan team and they come into this final on the back of a great league season. In the semi-final against Wolves they made a great comeback and maybe this is their year.
Having said that it won’t be easy for them. Manchester City are one of the best teams in the world at the moment. Even though the Citizens are still focused on winning the Premier League, they have a deep squad that can cope with several competitions.
If Watford will be able to win they will also claim a place in the Europa League that for a team of their size would be a massive achievement.
The oldest cup final will take place on Saturday 18th May at Wembley. Bookmakers will go the extra mile in offering top value and we suggest you wait 24-48 hrs before the kickoff of the game to secure the best deals.

Even though snooker has expanded internationally, the famous World Championship at the Crucible Theatre will always remain at the top of this sport.
The format of this event has remained unchanged for more than 50 years and there is no reason to do so as it such a popular event. The best 16 players in the world will compete together with 16 qualifiers. 5 knock-out rounds are stretching from the Easter weekend to the final which falls on May bank holiday weekend.
This has a straight knockout format: games are decided on the best of 19 frames in round one, to best of 35 in the final. In this tournament there are very competitive matches between the very best players.
Ronnie O’Sullivan has had so far a great season having won the UK, Players and also the Tour Championship. He has also become the first player who managed to reach 1000 century breaks.
Difficult to predict who is going to stop Ronnie from winning a 6th title. If the legend fails then Judd Trump, Mark Selby, Mark Allen and Neil Robertson all will have a chance to win the crown.
