As you will have noticed with some of the other promotions in which we have featured, the British & Irish Lions tour of New Zealand is gaining large amounts of attention, with this only set to increase as the countdown to the second test match begins. Warren Gatland’s men came off second best against the World Champions at Eden Park last weekend, however strong showings from the likes of Liam Williams and Connor Murray, along with a spirited first half performance, suggest that the tourists are still in with a hope of causing an upset during the series.
As a result of such attention being placed upon the tour, a number of bookmakers are also looking to get in on the action, with Betfair no different. The popular bookmakers are offering their customers the opportunity to earn double the earnings from bets placed upon the first try scorer during upcoming matches. Having scored two tries during the first test against the Lions, Rieko Ioane is certain to be one of the favourites in this market for the second test in Wellington, while British fans will look to the likes of Liam Williams and Anthony Watson for their potential selections.
Should you be lucky enough to back a winner, you will earn double the earnings from your stake, up to a maximum of £10. Simply log in to your Betfair account, place a pre-match single bet on the first try scorer market for any match during the Lions Tour 2017, and sit back in the hope of your player delivering the goods. Should your player go on to score again during the 80-minute match, winnings will be paid in cash at normal price, before being topped up to double odds in the form of free bets.
Elsewhere in terms of terms and conditions, free bets will be credited to your account within 4 hours of the match ending, and are then available for 48 hours. Remember that your selection must score at least two tries during a match in order to successfully qualify for this double odds offer. However, with many predicting a high scoring encounter for both the second and third test matches, along with the upcoming match against the Hurricanes, there is plenty of opportunity to back a lucrative winner.
