Bellew v Usyk: Choice of Enhanced Welcome Offers from SportPesa
We’ve already seen some huge fights in this boxing year but Saturday’s showdown between Tony Bellew and Oleksandr Usyk could be the greatest match up of them all. A total of four belts are up for grabs in this cruiserweight Winner Takes All battle and it’s clearly going to be a busy night for the bookies too.
Among the offers and promotions that are trickling in is a choice of two new customer deals from SportPesa*. They apply to different markets and carry different staking terms so let’s move straight on and see what’s available.
*New players only | Exact stake £1 | Bet settled in cash at normal odds, then topped up with bonus token to reflect promo price | Bonus token valid for 5 days from issue | No E-Wallets | BeGambleAware.org | 18+ | T&Cs Apply
75/1 Bellew to Win
The first offer is in the straight result market where SportPesa have lifted Tony Bellew’s price up to a mighty 75/1. That compares to best odds in the open markets of 49/10 with MarathonBet while Usyk is the clear favourite at 1/6 with most bookies including William Hill and Betway.
We’ll round up the terms shortly but would point out at this stage that there is a fixed stake of £1.00 for this offer.
Even Money the fight not to go the distance
The second of the two promotions quotes a boosted price of Even Money if this fight doesn’t go the full distance. Obviously that’s lower than the 75/1 quoted above but this time, the fixed stake has risen to £50.00.
For reference, the equivalent bet in the open markets can be picked up at 4/7 with SportingBet so the bookmakers also feel this has a better chance of landing.
You can’t take both of these deals but if you want to take one up and are a new customer to SportPesa, you can cross from here to start the process. You will need to complete the sign up forms at the other end of this link but these are quick and easy and will only take up around five minutes of your time.
Once validated and confirmed, you should be taken across to the cashier. If taking the Even Money price boost, you will need to deposit at least £50.00 to cover the stake but if you are backing the 75/1 Bellew to win offer, you will need to credit the set minimum of £10.00.
Whichever deal you choose, be sure to add those funds using a debit or credit card because all eWallets, including Skrill and Neteller, are specifically excluded under terms and conditions.
Take care of those points and you can move on to the next phase.
Place Your Bets
Funds should clear straight away and you can then pick between those two offers and bet whichever of the two fixed stakes is applicable. The fight takes place on Saturday November 10, with a scheduled start time of 10pm GMT and if, at the end of it, you have backed a winner, profits will come back to you in two parts.
An initial return will make its way back to you in cash and this will be based on SportPesa’s equivalent odds in their standard betting markets. The balance, up to whichever of those two price boosts is applicable, will then come back as a series of free bet tokens within 48 hours.
Do look out for those tokens as they must be used up within 5 days before they expire and while that completes a full run down of significant points, you are free to check all terms and conditions on the SportPesa promos page if you prefer.
Which to Choose?
We’ve already seen that Tony Bellew is the outsider for this fight: The Englishman has won 30 of his 33 pro bouts with two defeats and one draw while his opponent has 15 wins from his 15 fights.
Usyk has won 11 of those bouts by knockout so it would seem that the Fight to Not go the Distance option is safer and that’s a theory which is backed up by the odds setters. Really, it’s up to you; you could take that safer punt but that 75/1 price on a Bellew victory will be tough to beat.
Whichever side of the fence you fall, either of these promotions could lead to significantly boosted profits for new SportPesa customers.
