ANOTHER weekend, another sporting smorgasbord.
The footy season is in full swing, the NBA playoffs are just around the corner and there’s more Group 1 racing at Randwick as Sydney’s Autumn Carnival continues.
There’s also plenty of soccer action from Australia and abroad as things start to get serious in world football’s top domestic leagues.
Let’s take a look at the best sports betting specials for the weekend ahead at our trusted online bookmakers.
CrownBet’s Saturday Randwick Special
The Championships 2016 was the biggest yet, with bookies recording a 30 per cent increase in total wagering compared to last year’s event.
Punters who want more Group 1 betting action can get back on it this weekend as Royal Randwick plays host to the All Aged Stakes and the Champagne Stakes.
Online bookmaker CrownBet.com is offering a bonus refund up to $50 if your pick runs second in any of the last four races at Randwick this Saturday, April 16.
For example: if you place a $50 fixed odds bet on Malaguerra to win the 2016 All Aged Stakes, CrownBet will give you a $50 bonus bet if he runs second.
That’s only one among many generous racing promotions available this weekend at our top-ranked online bookies:
William Hill’s Multi Insurance Plus
Place a racing multi bet of four legs or more and collect up to 40 per cent extra on your winnings, or $50 money back if your multi misses by one leg.
Sportsbet Daily Racing Specials
Get up to $50 cash back for fixed price bets on selected Australian thoroughbred races every day of the week.
Sportsbet NBA Multi Boost
With the regular season wrapping up on Wednesday night, we’re ready for round one of the 2016 NBA playoffs.
Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Eastern Conference to set up a date with Detroit this weekend, while Charlotte Hornets head to Miami, Boston Celtics travel to Atlanta, and Indiana Pacers go north to Toronto.
Golden State Warriors are hot favourites against Houston after taking out the Western Conference, LA Clippers face a tricky tie against Portland, San Antonio Spurs are home to Memphis, and Oklahoma City resume their state-line rivalry with Dallas.
If you fancy a flutter this weekend, our friends at Sportsbet.com.au are offering a boost of up to $200 cash for winning NBA multi bets of four legs or more.
- Four legs – 15% winnings boost
- Five legs – 20% winnings boost
- Six legs or more – 25% winnings boost
So if you salute with a six-leg NBA multibet paying $100, for example, Sportsbet will boost your payout up to $125.

CrownBet NBA Playoff Bonus
If your team leads at three-quarter time but loses the game, CrownBet will refund your stake up to $50 in bonus bets.
AFL Chase the Points at William Hill
Under-the-pump Richmond kick off round four of the 2016 AFL Premiership season with a tough test away to West Coast, who are flying high after last Saturday’s big derby win.
If you pick any player to score the first goal in the Eagles vs. Tigers game, WilliamHill.com will give you $1 for every point they score in the match (up to the amount of your stake).
Best of all, it doesn’t matter whether or not your player kicks the first goal. If he gets on the score sheet, you get paid.
For example: if you put $50 on West Coast’s Josh Kennedy in the first goalscorer market and he finishes with five goals and two behinds for the night, you’ll win $32 cash for the big man’s efforts – even if he didn’t bag the opening major.
There’s plenty more AFL betting specials on this weekend at our top-rated online sportsbooks:
Sportsbet’s H2H Special
Get up to $50 money back on fixed win bets if your team leads at any break but loses the match.
AFL Multi Insurance at CrownBet
Pick a footy multi of five legs or more and grab a bonus refund up to $50 if you miss out by only one leg.
Luxbet.com’s AFL Sunday Special
Place a half-time/full-time bet on Collingwood vs. Melbourne and get your money back up to $50 if your team loses the match after leading at the main break.
A-League and EPL betting specials
It’s finals time in A-League 2015-16 as Australia’s top six teams vie for a spot in the title decider.
This weekend’s elimination round sees the two Melbourne clubs fighting for survival, with City hosting Perth Glory while Victory play away to Brisbane Roar.
If you place a first goalscorer bet on either A-League elimination final at Sportsbet.com, you can get up to $50 money back if your player’s team fails to score.
The same deal applies to the match of the round in the English Premier League, where shock champions-in-waiting Leicester City will take on a West Ham United side looking to snatch a top-four spot.
If you love an EPL multi bet, check out these promos at William Hill and CrownBet:
