Boat Race Free Bet

Boat Race Free Bet

It’s the only race in the world that sees half a million people line the banks of the River Thames, but the Boat Race has become such a popular event that the Boat Race betting is now a serious market. At Ladbrokes.com customers are able to bet on the Boat Race outright winner, winning time, margin of victory and starting spot of each crew among plenty of other markets, and a Boat Race free bet is a great way to get involved in the action.

With millions of people watching at home, the Boat Race betting is now a major market and there is plenty of profit to be made, and plenty of excitement to be had in the 20-minute period. In-play betting means the Boat Race odds will be updated throughout the 20 minutes allowing punters the chance to back the crew that looks most likely at different points throughout the race.

This will be the 157th time Cambridge and Oxford will have gone head-to-head on the River Thames, and while Cambridge lead the way with 80 wins to Oxford’s 75, (1 dead heat), the head-to-head record tells you just how little separates these two crews. The University Boat Race attracts interest from all over the world and both Blue Boats boast international crews that will fight to end for victory.

It’s assumed that the heavier crew and the crew that races on the Surrey side of the Thames, rather than the Middlesex side, holds the advantage. Cambridge will line-up for the 2011 Boat Race as the heavier crew but we won’t know which side of the river they’ll start on until the coin toss before the race. Ladbrokes.com customers are able to bet on the outcome of the coin toss among many Boat Race betting markets, and new customers to Ladbrokes.com are eligible for a free bet which can be used as a Boat Race free bet.
