The British & Irish Lions face off against the New Zealand All Blacks for the third time in just a matter of weeks on Saturday, knowing that they are just 80 minutes away from writing their names into the record books. Despite many having predicted the All Blacks to dominate the tourists throughout the series, the Lions, led by Kiwi Warren Gatland, have shown that they are up to the challenge. A comeback victory last time around levelled up the series at 1-1, with it now all riding on Saturday’s encounter at Eden Park.
As a result, a huge amount of money is expected to be bet on the match, with New Zealand still the firm favourites to secure a series win. However, for supporters backing the Lions, the first try scorer market will be tempting many. Bookmakers Ladbrokes are looking to take advantage of this by offer money back as a free bet, on both losing first try scorer and 5 point winning margin markets, if the Lions score the first try on Saturday. This means that if you bet on either of these two markets, and you see your bet lose, your stake will be refunded in the form of a free bet, if in fact it was the Lions who scored the first try of the game.
The likes of Julian Savea, Jordie Barrett, Liam Williams and Anthony Watson will all fancy their chances of crossing the line, with this latest promotion from Ladbrokes set to temp more customers into placing bets. With this offer being made available to both new and existing customers, there is no excuse to miss out.
As far as terms and conditions go, only single bets will qualify, with customers placing bets after 17:00 on the 6th July will be eligible for a potential refund. In the rare instance that no tries are scored on Saturday, then no refund will be awarded.
For rugby fans, this really is not one to miss out on, with the final match of the tour set to test the skills and hearts of all those involved, including those watching at home. Head to Ladbrokes now in order to get involved, before placing your bet on the first try scorer or a 5-point winning margin market.
