Live NBA Streaming on Bet365

You may or may not be aware, but anyone who has a funded Bet365 account (basically you need money in an active account) is able to watch loads of live Sport streamed live through their website for free.

Mainstream football from the German Bundesliga, Australian A-League, Dutch Eredivisie, Ligue 1 from France, and Serie A from Italy, are available to watch on a weekly basis.

To add to this, from tonight (29th October), it will now be possible to watch this season’s NBA Championship on Bet365 if you live in the UK, Republic of Ireland & Denmark.

The reigning champions Miami Heat take on the Chicago Bulls in the season opener at the American Airlines Arena. The Heat are favourites for the championship at 2/1, and the Bulls can be backed at 7/1 (they have been backed in from 9/1 over the last couple of weeks).

Lebron James will be looking for an amazing third straight (and fifth overall) Most Valuable Player award, and tonight he squares up against Great British hope Loul Deng in a mouth watering season opener.

Also tonight, we have the two Los Angeles sides squaring up to each other. The LA Clippers are expected to do the better of the two and can be backed to win the Championship at 11/1, while the LA Lakers are outsiders at 30/1.

The departure of Dwight Howard may have played a part in the Lakers’ current long odds of 30/1, but it might not be the worst thing to happen to them with Pau Gasol looking to express himself and prove that there is life after Howard.

Howard’s arrival at the Houston Rockets sees them at joint fourth favourites at 11/1 (along with the Nets, Spurs and Clippers), in what promises to be another spectacular season of NBA.

Will be back to the football betting next time, I promise 🙂

As I stated at the start of the article, to watch the NBA or all the football I listed, you will need to have money in your Bet365 account. If you haven’t an account, and wish to open one and also take advantage of a sign up offer worth up to £200.00, you can do so by following this link.

Bet365 Champions League 100% Euro Soccer and Bore Draw bonuses

The second round of Champions League fixtures kick off tonight and this gives us an opportunity to take advantage of Bet365’s 100% Euro Soccer and Bore Draw bonuses.

For anyone not familiar, you can get a bonus of up to 100% of your accumulator winnings on the Champions League group fixtures, more details are available through this link Bet365 100% Euro Soccer Bonus.

As well as that you can also take advantage of the Bet365 Bore Draw money back refund, this is where you get your money back on selected markets if the match ends 0-0.

The main attraction tonight is Arsenal v Napoli. Both sides have had strong starts to the season, although it could be said that Napoli have had the trickier fixtures – overall – to contend with. They’ve managed 4 wins from 5 so far, including wins against two European heavyweights, in Dortmund and Milan.

Arsenal are also looking in great form however so it will be very interesting to see who will come out on top when Benitez makes his return trip to London for the first time since taking charge of the Italian outfit earlier in the summer.

Surprisingly (or maybe not, to some people), Napoli don’t seem to have reverted to the stereotype negative Benitez style, although that could change tonight, as Rafa is renowned for being tactically astute in Europe.

A twist of irony sees former Arsenal target Higuain playing at the Emirates, Higuain is 3/1 to outscore the in-form Giroud with Bet365, the man he was set to replace at one stage!

Elsewhere, Ajax host Milan and Celtic will welcome back the mighty but Messi-less Barcelona. Celtic fans and players alike will be dreaming of a repeat victory from last November when they caused a huge upset to beat the Spanish Champions 2-1.

Bet365 have Celtic at 8/1 to repeat last season’s success and beat Barcelona, and they are 4/1 to earn a draw.

All these Bet365 offers are available to new and existing customers, to open an account. There is also £200 in free bets available to new customers, for further details, or to open an account, please click here.

Premier League Winner Betting

All the bluster of the Transfer Window is finally over, and we can now thankfully start to make our (so-called) informed decisions about who will win what, in this season’s Premier League.

From a personal perspective I like to wait until all the transfer window bullcrap is over before I decide who I think will do what, as it’s just too hard to call when you don’t know which players will be at which clubs, when the window finally shuts.

Despite all the money that changed hands, not to much has changed with regard to the Premier League winner betting odds. Chelsea and Manchester City are both 2/1, and Manchester United are 4/1, which is pretty much where they were.

Despite Arsenal signing Mesut Ozil, they are still outsiders at 12/1, and with none of the top 3 (in the betting) making a significant signing, there was no major shift in the betting.

Okay, so some might rightly argue that Marouane Fellaini is a significant signing at over £25M, but when it comes to a signing that punters believe can influence the title race, Fellaini doesn’t seem to fit that description.

Chelsea signed Willain and Samuel Eto’o, but surprisingly let Lukaku go with Demba Ba staying at the club, while Manchester City did all their main business pre season.

Basically, none of the three made a signing that made football gambling punters sit up and take notice, a signing that would really influence the football betting world.

To me Manchester United have pretty much stood still squad wise, and that is mainly why they are third favourites. They won the league last year quite convincingly, but I think seasoned watchers would say that it wasn’t with a vintage squad. That said, it is still a pretty strong squad.

For me they needed a right back, and they clearly wanted (and need) a creative midfielder, but unless they can get a top class world performer, then there’s no point in just buying for the sake of it. Can they be strong enough to win the league again? I’m not so sure, I think they are going to need City and Chelsea to under perform (again) this season.

Chelsea underwent a bit of a transformation season last year for me. Mourinho will get the balance of the team right, even if that means leaving Mata out, which all the early indications suggest he will. If Torres can recapture his top form, then Chelsea will be a force to be reckoned with.

Can they be stronger than Manchester City though? I thought that City majorly under performed last season. They basically chucked the league away that day Nasri ducked out of the way of Van Persie’s free kick in the last minute at Eastlands.

There are a few ifs buts and maybes for me, here. Can Torres perform, and can Pellegrini get Manchester City to perform to their potential? Whoever comes out on top there, will win the league in my view.

There is one other conundrum to throw into this mix here, and that is Eden Hazard. Hazard looks a top class player to me, he looks the sort of player who will one day take the Premier League by storm and win the league for Chelsea in the sort of fashion Eric Cantana and Cristiano Ronaldo did for Manchester United in the past – almost single handedly.

I’m not sure if that will happen this year for Hazard, but I’m sure he will develop into that sort of player some time over the next two to three years.

For now though, if asked to nail my colours to the mast, I’m going to go for Manchester City to win the league this year (I predicted that last year as well), and I believe the rest of the top 4 will be made up of the same four teams as last season (Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal – although not necessarily in that order).

Odds are based on the prices with Bet365, £200 in free bets are available to new customers

Bet365 Bore Draw Refund

Bet365 have many promotions to keep their existing customers happy. One such offer that runs all year round is their 0-0 ‘Bore Draw Money Back’ promotion.

The Bet365 bore draw is where you can have a pre match bet on one of the following three markets, Correct Score, Half Time/Full Time or Scorecast, and if the match ends 0-0, you get your money back. I don’t know about anyone else, but when betting on football, I find a 0-0 result is the most frustrating outcome possible.

The Bet365 bore draw refund is available on ANY football match, and – to the best of my knowledge – has no maximum bet limit.

For the casual football gambler, I believe it is a fairly decent offer. These markets obviously attract more speculative bets, and aren’t the type of bets that will see punters putting large amounts on, but at least with Bet365, you are getting a third option (money back) when you bet on one of these markets.

New Bet365 customers will get £200.00 in free bets. After you have opened an account and received your sign up offer, you will also see that there is also a lot of other Bet365 offers for existing customers. Other Bet365 promotions are…..

Regular £50.00 Free Bet For Existing Customers.

100% Euro Soccer Bonus

Pre Match Trading – Week 40 Results

29 May England v Rep of Ireland / Over/Under 2.5 Goals – Won £1.73
1 June Bayern Munich v Stuttgart / Over/Under 2.5 Goals – Won £2.42

A week’s online football trading profit of £4.15

Total Pre Match Trading profits to date is £260.82. My football betting bank now stands at £360.82, I started off the experiment with a betting bank of £100.00 and use around 75% of my available bank on my trades, which are all done pre kick off using Betfair.

Another quiet week, with just the two matches traded.

I only got involved in the match between England and Republic of Ireland once. It was one of those matches of which the market was hard to read, so after one trade I just decided to leave it alone.

It was a similar case with the Champions League final between Munich and Dortmund, this time my activity was limited as I was more interested in concentrating on making the most of the regular £50 Bet365 Free Bet for existing customers.

With this in mind, I just done a couple of trades in the afternoon, and then left it alone again. I was trying to get my qualifying bet (for my free bet) on at a certain price, so I didn’t want to have any distractions going on.

I know it’s not difficult to do both, but I find at times if I’ve got two things going on at once, one can accidentally get overlooked. This can lead to cock ups which can cost money, so on this occasion an over cautious safety first approach was adopted (some might call it sensible).

I’m hoping to get involved in more matches next week with the Under 21 European Championships starting and some World Cup qualifiers to be played.

Bet365 Free Bet for existing customers to use on Champions League Final

This weekend sees another Bet365 Free Bet offer as yet again they are running their £50.00 free bet for existing (and new) customers, this time to be used on Saturday’s Champions League Final between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

This represents another chance for us to bag ourselves another guaranteed risk free £35.00 using the matched betting method. This is where I would cover the qualifying bet on a betting exchange (I use Betfair). And then after I have placed the free bet, I would then lay off a proportion of the free bet to guarantee a return no matter what.

It basically works like this. For the qualifying bet, I would back Bayern at 1.8 on Bet365 for £50, and then I would lay Bayern on Betfair for approximately £50 (aim to get back as close to £90 as possible).

Once that’s all done, I would wait until half time so that a goal can’t be scored while placing the bets, and then place my free bet. I usually look for something at around 3/1 to back with Bet365. This means I get back £150.00 if the free bet wins.

I would then lay a proportion of the 3/1 shot on Betfair. It will usually be around 4.2 to 4.3 to lay. If I’m laying at 4.3, I would lay £35.50. This would give me a guaranteed profit of just over £33.70 after commission.

If you can find a 7/2 or 4/1 shot to back and lay, you should clear £35.00 profit.

Alternatively, you could just have a risk free, free bet. Again you will need to cover your qualifying bet on Betfair (ie, back Bayern for £50 with Bet365, and then lay them for approximately £50 on Betfair). And then have the £50.00 free bet in running on whatever you want. If it wins great, if it loses, so what, it’s a free bet and hasn’t cost you anything.

Either way, it represents great value and is why I would recommend to anyone that they open themselves a Bet365 account.

Remember, to qualify for the free bet, you will need to place your £50.00 qualifying bet pre kick off. You then place a bet in-running, the in-running bet is your free bet. If the in-running bet losses, you get your £50.00 back. It’s as simple as that.

There is one of these free bet offers every month from Bet365. I’ve been in this business now for a long time now and I can say that I’ve never known another online bookmaker offer a £50.00 free bet to existing customers on such a regular basis. I have rarely seen a bookie offer a £50.00 free bet full stop, never mind one every month or so.

Onto the match itself and at the moment Bet365 make Bayern Munich the clear favourites to win the cup. 90 minute betting sees Bayern Munich at 4/5, the draw at 3/1 and Borussia Dortmund at 7/2.

To win the Champions League outright, Bayern are 2/5 and Dortmund are 21/10, making the German champions the clear favourites.

I half think Bayern could run away with it, and I half think it could be a tight affair, I really don’t know to be honest. Considering Munich bottled the final last year, I would be a touch apprehensive about backing them at odds on in any capacity.

One bet I do like though is the ‘Method of Victory’ bet, which I think offers good value. I’m going to be backing penalties both ways, Bet365 currently have Bayern 12/1 to win on penalties, and Dortmund 14/1 to win on penalties.

As well as a bit of value, it’s the irony of the prospect of a German side losing a penalty shoot out at Wembley. It could only happen against another German team!

Another £50 Free Bet for existing customers from Bet365

Yes, here we go again, Bet365 are offering another £50.00 free bet to existing customer to use on Tuesday night’s Champions League match between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund from the Santiago Bernabeu.

This Bet365 free bet is the latest in a series of £50.00 free bets for existing customers, they usually come at around one a month on average. Following on from the free bets on both legs of the tie between Real Madrid and Manchester United in February and March, we hadn’t had one yet in April…. until now.

To qualify for the maximum £50.00, you simply have too place a pre-match bet on the Real Madrid v Borussia Dortmund game for £50.00, and Bet365 will give you a free In-Play bet to the same stake during the big match.

To qualify for your free In-Play bet, simply place a bet before kick-off, then once the game starts place another bet on any In-Play market. If your FIRST In-Play bet loses Bet365 will refund this stake, up to the same value as your largest pre-match bet (max £50).

As always, there’ll be plenty to choose from with over 70 In-Play markets available throughout the game including Next Goal, Match Goals, Total Corners, Half-Time Result, Full-Time Result and much more.

In the past I’ve used the matched betting method to guarantee around £35.00 profit, I’ve also just claimed the free bet and had it on something I fancy at half time.

It’s really up to the individual what approach you want to take with using the free bet, but the main thing is to claim it, as it is one of the – if the not the – best free bet for existing customers offer of any bookmakers.

As well as this magnificent offer, Bet365 also offer a £200.00 sign up bonus, the best in the online bookmaking world. To open a Bet365 account, please click here….

Free Bets For Existing Customers

As well as giving free bets to new customers, online bookmakers will also offer free bets to existing customers these days. This is nothing new, I have heard of this many times in the past, but from my own personal experiences it is getting more and more common.

Bet365 – Over the last year, I’ve had a £50.00 free bet for existing customers from Bet365 on average once every month to two. Bet365 usually do it when a big TV match comes around. You need to have a £50.00 bet on the match pre kick off, and then Bet365 will give you a £50.00 free bet in running. It is an easy way to make upwards of £30.00 from matched betting.

As well as the regular £50.00 free bet, Bet365 also offer new account sign ups £200.00 in free bets.

Paddy Power – I’ve had two free bet offers since the start of March, one for £25.00 on football, and one for £10.00 on horse racing – the horse racing one, just last week during the Grand National meeting at Aintree.

Paddy Power also offer regular money back specials, and there is a £30.00 in free bets for new Paddy Power customers.

I have a few quid sitting in my Paddy Power account, and I very rarely use it (as I do most of my football gambling on Betfair). So once in a while Paddy Power will offer me a free bet in an attempt to kick start me in to using their services again. Technically speaking this is a free bet for an existing customer, but it is a person specific one.

The Bet365 free bets for existing customers go a step further, as they are open to all new and all existing customers (unless your account has been limited).

It’s worth having online bookmakers accounts with Bet365 and Paddy Power just for these reasons alone, never mind the sign up offers. It’s also worth opening as many online bookmakers account as possible, for the reasons above.

As well as this, you will need a betting exchange account if you wish to make money from these free bets using the matched betting method, and there has never been a better time than now to open a Betdaq account.

Betdaq are currently on a promotional charge since they were bought out by Ladbrokes, and they are currently offering up to £200.00 in free bets, based on acquiring commission. You can open a Betdaq account here…

Bet365 £50 free bet for existing customers

Ahead of the upcoming new football season, one online bookmakers account I would seriously recommend any punter getting is a Bet365 account.

The reason? Well because not only do they have a very generous looking sign up offer of £200 in free bets (which I have to admit, I didn’t get the chance to take advantage off as I’ve had an account with them for years), but because they now regularly offer new and – most importantly for me – EXISTING customers an in-running £50 free bet on selected big matches throughout the season.

Since Christmas I have seen them do this offer for the matches between Liverpool and Tottenham in February, Chelsea V Napoli in March, Manchester City V Manchester United in April and in the Euro’s they did it for the Spain V Italy group match and England V Italy in the quarter finals. That’s basically one a month.

When they pick a game to run this offer, what you have to do is place a bet on the match pre kick off. You then place a bet to the same value in running and if it losses you get your money back. The maximum amount is £50.

What I usually do is place my pre match bet for £50, and then lay it off on a betting exchange (usually Betfair) so I don’t lose. I then place my in-running bet (obviously) after kick off and then lay a proportion of that on the betting exchange to ensure a guaranteed profit of some sort no matter what happens.

The £50.00, reload Bet365 free bet offer was first brought to my attention by emails I receive from Bet365, so be sure to always check the content of their emails. I’m fairly sure they have run it for a lot longer than I have been taking advantage of it for, as I’m sure I’ve noticed it getting a mention on Twitter in the past.

If football betting, or sports betting in general isn’t your game, then it might be worth signing up through bet365’s casino instead. You will need to enter the bet365 casino promo code in order to receive a £150.00 welcome bonus, instead of the Sportsbook Welcome Bonus.

You can’t sign up through the Sportsbook and receive the Welcome Bonus, and then sign up through the Casino and receive that Welcome Bonus as well, it has to be one or the other.

You can generally make yourself a risk free £20.00-£35.00 from this bet, depending on what betting market you use. You can get a Bet365 account by following this link… and don’t forget there is a £200 sign up bonus as well..
