Weekend Winners: Winning tips and tales of punting glory

We celebrate the best bets that have come in over weekend

Sporting Life boxing expert Chris Oliver landed with a couple of decent bets on Saturday night, hot on the heels of another big week for the racing desk - get the latest Weekend Winners.

Campbell stays the pace

Luke Campbell had the unenviable task of taking on Vasyl Lomachenko at London's O2 Arena on Saturday night and most observers gave the Brit little of a chance against a fighter with such a high standing in the sport.

In fact, following Floyd Mayweather's retirement, Lomachenko has become the pound-for-pound boxing king but that didn't perturb our expert Chris Oliver who was sure Campbell could go the distance.

What that 9/4 banker landing, as well as a decision win for Charlie Edwards on the undercard, it was a profitable night on the boxing front.

Be sure to keep an eye out for our next big-fight betting preview.

Hot Holt and blazing Bell light up Super Saturday

Following all the razzmatazz of last week's Ebor Festival and the £1 million Sky Bet Ebor itself, this weekend was always going to be more low key on the racing front.

Nevertheless, that didn't stop Simon Holt maintaining his fine run of form as he again turned a profit while Oli Bell was also amongst the winners.

In fact, Oli found Beverley Bullet winner Judicial at 10/1 to ensure his followers were laughing all the way down the Westwood.

Luck of the Irish!

Four picks, £4.50 staked and just under four hours later Dean, from Sligo, was £6400 richer.

It all started when French Twist landed the 14.20 at Wolverhampton at odds of 15/2 and the fun on the sand didn't stop there, Ruby Gates (5/1) and Chicago Doll (9/2) obliging before Miss Garger (9/1) brought home the four-fold in cosy fashion.

Nice work if you can get it!

Ryan from Liverpool was another to strike lucky at the weekend, this time on the football, as his 20 pence treble netted him over £1100.

His picks were Sadio Mane to score first and Liverpool to win 3‐0 at 40/1, Manchester City to win 4‐0 at 8/1 and Leicester to win 3‐1 at 14/1.

Yep, you read it right the first time.
