Betting Tips For The New Year

As 2023 draws to a close, here at we’re excited to see what 2024 holds from a betting perspective. The new year will serve up a packed sporting calendar and below we’ve listed just some of the bets you should consider going into January and beyond. As well as offering hugely generous free bet offers, we will also provide the very latest odds from our betting partners at BoyleSports.

Euro 2024

This summer, Germany will host the European Championships and England fans will once more dare to dream that football could finally come home. The domestic form of Three Lions stars such as Harry Kane, Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice make England the BoyleSports’ outright joint-favourites. Gareth Southgate’s side were losing finalists in the last European Championships but are excellent value at 7/2 to go one better in 2024.

Unsurprisingly, France’s star-studded squad are amongst the competition’s favourites at 7/2. The two-time winners and last year’s losing World Cup finalists boast arguably the best player set to compete in the tournament in Kylian Mbappe and the PSG forward is favourite to be crowned Player of the Tournament.

In what is likely to be Cristiano Ronaldo’s final major international tournament, Portugal have been considerable market movers recently, shortening from 14/1 to 7/1 in the space of just a few months.

Cheltenham Festival Highlights

The Cheltenham Festival is undoubtedly the highlight of the UK’s National Hunt season and the 2024 Festival is shaping up nicely. Antepost bets are an excellent opportunity to grab some real value in some of the Festival’s big races and here we’ve listed some of the most-backed selections across this year’s five-day Festival.

Constitution Hill: Champion Hurdle - 1/3

The shortest-priced selection of the entire meeting is Nicky Henderson’s superstar six-year-old, Constitution Hill. He’s just 1/3 to win a second successive Champion Hurdle but he is worth every penny! Maybe too short to consider backing as a single selection but Constitution Hill will be a great addition to any betting multiples.

Constitution Hill made an impressive return to the track over Christmas as he landed the Grade 1 Christmas Hurdle at Kempton in his first run since April.

Galopin Des Champs: Gold Cup - 5/4

Another horse tipped to defend his title is 2023 Cheltenham Gold Cup winner, Galopin Des Champs. Willie Mullins’ seven-year-old had eased in the betting following successive defeats at Punchestown in April and more recently in the John Durkan Memorial Punchestown Chase in November. However, he was back to his best in the Savills Chase at Leopardstown last month, finishing 23 lengths ahead of Gerri Colombe in second.

Marine Nationale: Arkle Chase - Evens

Marine Nationale shocked favourite, Facile Vega to win the Supreme Novices Hurdle at the 2023 Cheltenham Festival. The six-year-old has been tipped to follow in the footsteps of several previous Supreme winners such as Douvan and Altior by going on to win the Arkle twelve months later.

Marine Nationale was back in the winner’s enclosure on his reappearance at Leopardstown last week but the Arkle will certainly prove a considerable step up in class.

El Fabiolo: Champion Chase - 10/11

The 2023 Arkle Chase was won by the last of our 2024 Cheltenham picks. El Fabiolo has been backed to run in the Queen Mother Champion Chase in 2024 and he could once again get the better of Jonbon at Cheltenham. The two rivals finished first and second in the Arkle but have both been tipped for the Champion Chase in 2024.

Since landing the Arkle, El Fabiolo has won a Grade 1 Novice Chase at Punchestown as well as a Grade 2 at Cork, finishing four lengths clear of Fil Dor in early December.

Novak Djokovic v Carlos Alcaraz

Novak Djokovic is the most successful men’s tennis player of all time having won an unprecedented 24 Grand Slam titles throughout his career. However, over the past 18 months we have seen the emergence of his likely successor; 20-year-old, Carlos Alcaraz.

Djokovic and Alcaraz have won the last six Grand Slam events contested, stretching all the way back to Wimbledon in 2022. The world’s top two players are predicted to dominate again in 2024, as indicated by the latest outright Grand Slam betting odds.

Heavyweight Boxing: The Road to Undisputed

Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk will finally meet in a boxing ring on February 17th with the winner set to become the first undisputed heavyweight world champion since Lennox Lewis. Tyson Fury remains the bookies’ favourite but his odds have eased slightly following an unconvincing win over former UFC star, Francis Ngannou. Former undisputed cruiserweight world champion, Oleksandr Usyk is aiming to emulate Terrence Crawford and Naoya Inoue in becoming just the third man to become a two-weight undisputed world champion in the four-belt era. If you are looking to engage in boxing online betting, here are the latest odds for fight:
