Markets and Odds

One thing is certain at Boylesports and that is you’ll never have a dull moment. The site is packed with markets aplenty. Whatever the time of the day (or night) there will be a whole host of games for you to choose from and that means you could be a winner whether the sun is rising, shining or setting.

The top sports are all covered so if you’re a football fan you’re going to love visiting this site. The same goes for those of you who are passionate about horse racing, cricket, golf and tennis. Particularly the latter because it’s not just the major WTA and ATP tournaments that are covered. The Challenger series tournaments are also covered and that means even more games from all over the world that you can be placing bets on.

It’s the same with sports such as football where you can be betting on the Premier League one moment and a youth match in Asia the next. American sports fans won’t be disappointed with plenty of coverage of American Football, Baseball and Basketball. Horse Racing comes from around the globe with action from the UK, Australia, America and South Africa at all times of the day.

Finding all the relevant sections for each sport won’t cause any problems at all. It’s easy to find everything with an index on the left hand side of the home page. There’s the list of the most popular sports such as football and horse racing and if you want there’s an A to Z list of all the sports they cover as well as politics and TV events.

The odds at Boylesports are really competitive and there are enhanced offers that make it well worth your while betting on this site.

You may well spend lots of time studying form for the Premier League or the next day’s big race but how about something a little bit different? There are some out of the box bets on this site but a winner is a winner isn’t it? There’s even a page that looks at novelty bets.

Bets that might not be the first to come into your head include:

  • Who will win the most seats in the next Irish General Election?
  • Will Adele play Croker Park?

Its also possible to place ante-post bets at Boylesports. That’s always likely to get you some really good odds if your long-term bet comes off. The site has plenty of opportunities to take advantage of in all the sports they cover.

Live Betting

Placing ante-post bets can give you some long-term profits but can you wait that long? Betting on events as they take place really is exciting. Odds fluctuate all the time and it’s possible to make some really good profits with loads of markets available throughout the game.

The action at Boylesports goes on all day long so if you’re up for a late night, there’ll still be lots of betting odds available on live games even in the early hours. Those of you who love baseball and basketball may well have a few sleepless but profitable nights ahead of you.

Live Streaming

Following the game you’ve got a bet on is great fun but it’s even better if you can actually see all the action.

Live streaming is available on the site so you’ll be able to watch that team you’ve just backed score the winning goal. Action includes a wide range of sports with everything from horse racing to football from around the world and top tennis action.

Check out the live diary on the site that gives you information about the events that can be seen live. In addition there is live radio coverage of football and horse racing.

Boylesports Promotions


Crossbar Cashback

Here’s a promotion you don’t see on many sites. In televised Premier League games if either side hit the crossbar then all losing bets are refunded as a free bet. The ball has to rebound back into play and the maximum free bet refund is £25 per customer.

All Sports Acca Insurance

It’s always so frustrating when your accumulator goes down just because of one team. You know what it’s like, the rest of the night/week is spent cursing that team and forever thinking of what you’ve lost and what you could have won.

Well, if that happens to you in a any accumulator with five or more teams then you’ll receive your stake back as a free bet. The minimum odds are 1/3 for each selection/leg and the minimum stake returnable is £5 with the maximum £25.

Horse Racing

Best Odds Guaranteed

A frustrating part of betting is when you take a price in the morning and then watch that get larger and larger and still your selection wins. How many times have you thought you were being clever taking that 4-1 and then it goes off at 7-1.

If that happens to you when betting with Boylesports then the good news is that you’ll be paid out at the starting price and that can definitely lead to some higher profits.

Fair Play Moneyback

It’s that moment that all gamblers dread. They’ve spent all day working out who is going to win the race and their selection goes and gets upset or loses a shoe or something stupid and fails to come under starter’s orders.

At Boylesports if that happens in a UK or Irish race you’ll receive your stake back as a free bet up to a maximum of £100. I guess if you’ve gone off your selections chances of winning you might be begging for it to get withdrawn.

Other Cashback Offers

There are some special cashback offers made for major events. This includes cashback if the last score in the All-Ireland Hurling Final was a goal or if a player loses in the fifth set at a Grand Slam tournament.

All the promotions (and there are a lot of them) are listed on one page so just keep paying it a visit and see what’s on offer.


Statistics are becoming more and more important in betting. The site has plenty of information that will help you decide who you should be backing.

There are so many events being covered and many feature teams you’ve probably never heard of. Boylesports have some top tipsters (including Stan Collymore), podcasts and lots of articles giving information about upcoming games.

Desktop Site

There’s plenty to bet on at this site but that doesn’t mean it looks cluttered. Everything is well spaced out and totally clear. Navigation isn’t a problem either, just take a good look round the site after joining it and then you’ll have a great idea of where everything is.

The boxes down the left hand side of the screen allow you to instantly find the sport you want to bet on.

Mobile Site

These days you’re keen to be keeping up with everything while you’re on the move. That’s not just checking your latest emails but also playing your favourite betting sites. The good news then is that you are able to get a mobile version of the Boylesports site and an app.
