Hey Team!

The Bank Holiday Weekend sees plenty of big football matches for your Welcome Offer trigger and free bets!

The famous FA Cup Final and the Scottish Cup Final are in action on Saturday, whilst the final games of Italy's Serie A and League Two Play Off Final are in action on Sunday!

The '£150 million' game (if you believe the Sky Sports hype!) on Monday is the Championship Playoff between Huddersfield and Reading with the winner being promoted to the Premier League!

To help make it as easy as possible for you, check out my top selections below from Friday 26th May to Monday 29th May.

Please note you can use the OddsMonkey OddsMatcher (guide) to make more profit and speed up placing your bets too!

The below trigger bets are the best, based on they are:

  • The most popular sporting events this week.
  • Odds between 1.5 to 2.5. Note these are stated at the time of writing, don't worry if the odds have changed a little so long as they are still above the minimum odds (1.5 or 2.0 as stated in our guides).

Which trigger bet should you choose from the below table? Any trigger bet where the game has not started (based on the times listed below) and are above the bookmaker's minimum odds per our welcome offer guides.

Once you have chosen a trigger bet, continue on to Step 2 from the welcome offer guide you're completing.
