Free bets and bookie specials for weekend May 27-29

IT’S crunch time in the NBA Conference Finals, the French Open tennis is in full swing and State of Origin is right around the corner.

There’s also the small matter of two Spanish heavyweights duking it out for ultimate bragging rights in the UEFA Champions League decider in Milan on Saturday.

Let’s check out the best sports betting specials and promotions for the week ahead at our top-ranked online bookmakers.

Champions League first goal specials at Sportsbet

Local rivalry hits the international stage this weekend as Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid go toe-to-toe in the 2016 Champions League final.

Punters can celebrate the biggest night in European club football with an exclusive money back special at Sportsbet.com.au.

If you place a Champions League first goalscorer bet for Saturday’s final, Sportsbet will give you up to a $50 cash refund if your pick scores anytime in the game.

For example, let’s say we put $10 on Cristiano Ronaldo to net the opener. If he doesn’t score the first goal, but goes on to score anytime in the match, we will get our $10 bet back.

NBA Playoffs betting bonuses

It’s all gone topsy-turvy in the 2016 NBA Conference Finals.

Golden State Warriors are in crisis mode after going down 3-1 to Oklahoma City Thunder, while Toronto Raptors are back in the hunt after mauling Cleveland Cavaliers in game five.

How could this incredible playoff series get any better? By taking advantage of the generous NBA betting specials available at our top-rated online sportsbooks.

Sportsbet.com.au is offering up to $50 cash back on first basket bets for the rest of the NBA Conference Finals.

If your pick scores the second or third basket of the game, but not the first, the bookie will refund your bet in cash up to a $50 maximum.

You can pocket a similar deal over at CrownBet.com, but with bonus money in place of cash credits.

If your first basket bet nets the second, third, or fourth of the game, but not the first, CrownBet will match your initial stake with a free bet up to $50.

French Open multi insurance at William Hill

While the stars of international tennis look to take out the second major of the season, you can enjoy a range of multi specials at our approved online betting sites.

The best deal comes from our friends at WilliamHill.com, where you can get a tiered bonus for winning multis and up to $50 money back for losing bets.

If your multi of four legs or more misses out by a single leg, William Hill will refund your stake up to $50 cash.

If it wins, you can pocket up to 40 per cent extra winnings on top of your original return.

The more legs in the multi, the bigger the bonus:

For example, let’s say we put $10 on a six-leg tennis multi bet that pays $500. If we win, we collect a 10 per cent bonus for $550 in total winnings; and if we lose, we get our $10 stake back in cash.

Best of all, this deal isn’t restricted to French Open betting – you can mix and match legs from any sports you like.

The crown jewel of Australian rugby league kicks off on Wednesday, June 1, as Queensland and New South Wales resume hostilities in State of Origin 2016.

H2H Origin Special – If your head-to-head pick in game one loses by 10 points or fewer, CrownBet will refund your stake with bonus bets up to $50.
