The following is a list of sports available to bet on in April 2020:

1. Horse Racing

Horse Racing

Horse racing is a global sport, and there’s lots of action ongoing around the world in April. Those punters who like a flutter on the gee-gees have plenty of options to sink their teeth into.

Whether you want a quick £1 each-way or an across the card Lucky 15, you’ll be able to find the races to suit.

Australia, Hong Kong, Sweden, and the USA are all hotbeds for horse racing action this month. Peruse the fixture lists and you’ll find meetings at Sha Tin, Tampa Bay Downs, Launceston, and many other of the world’s major courses.

2. Belarusian Premier League Football

Belarus Premier League

The Belarusian Premier League, or Vysheyshaya Liga, is the country’s top division. The 2020 season has only just started, and the top teams are set to slug it out throughout April. That offers plenty of match result, in-play, and accumulator betting options for fans of football punting.

There’s even the opportunity to get a cheeky acca going. Big game weeks take place on Thursday nights when there’s plenty of games to pick from.

Perennial contenders like Dinamo Minsk and BATE Borisov are sure to be popular with punters. It’s lesser-known Belshina, though, who are defending the league crown they won in 2019.

Recommended Bookie: Unibet are offering odds and live streams (T&C’s & geo restrictions apply).

3. Greyhound Racing


One of the most traditional betting sports, greyhound racing is another with lots of events this month. Cast a glance around the globe, and you’ll find punting options from Australia or North America on a near daily basis through April.

Ballarat and Rockhampton are just two of the tracks in Australia hosting racing. It’s from the Antipodean nation that you’re likely to find the widest range of betting options. Most of the big bookies price up races from the active tracks all over the country.

New Zealand also have racing taking place and then there’s always virtual greyhounds if no live fixtures are available.

Recommended Bookie: Again Bet365 are your best option as there’s some live streaming available (T&C’s & geo restrictions apply).

4. Esports


If you like your sports betting a little more virtual, you’re in luck….

There’s more Esports action in April than you can shake a stick at. Contests are ongoing in leagues and tournaments for all the biggest global games. League of Legends, Counter Strike, and DOTA 2 are just three of the highest profile examples.

On any given day this month you’ll be able to head to a betting site and find a plethora of esports punting options. Depending on the event you choose, you have loads of market alternatives. You could choose a match result market, pick the team to win a particular map, or even place handicap wagers.

There’s even plenty of FIFA taking place in April and there’s always a free live stream available legally online for these type of events.

Much like regular tennis, you can bet on match results, final scores, game scores, and loads of other markets.

If you like your sporting action to take place in spandex with a big side order of trash talk, you’re probably a fan of WWE. That brand’s biggest event of the year, Wrestlemania, is just around the corner.

Taking place over two nights on the 4th and 5th April, there’s loads of sports entertainment action for you to bet on.

Lots of the major bookies are pricing up the biggest contests across the weekend. If you fancy Drew McIntyre to defeat Brock Lesnar or Charlotte Flair to take the NXT Women’s Title, you’ll be able to put your money where your mouth is.

Recommended Bookie: Unibet have the best selection of markets and odds.

8. UFC 249 (April 18th)

UFC 249

This is another event for those of you who love your combat sports. UFC is getting ever more popular, both as a spectator sport and with sports gamblers. The high-octane action and unpredictability of events in the Octagon make any major UFC night a hot ticket.

UFC 249 is no exception. Set for the night of April 18th, the exact card for the event is yet to be completely finalised. A women’s main event of Jessica Andrade taking on Rose Namajunas, though, is expected to feature. On the men’s side, the likes of Tony Ferguson and Islam Makhachev are also likely to feature.

Recommended Bookie: Unibet have the best selection of markets and odds.

9. The 2020 NFL Draft (April 23rd – 25th)

NFL Draft

We’re still some five months away from the new NFL season. The NFL Draft, though, offers some betting excitement for gridiron fans this April. The top college prospects will learn where they’re going to start their pro careers. Whatever your bookie of choice, you can also bet on where they’ll end up.

Markets are likely to multiply as we get closer to draft weekend. Expect many sites to let you place all kinds of bets to make a slightly repetitive night that bit more exciting. Maybe you think you know who’ll be number one overall or who the first running back drafted will be. If so, you can seek some monetary reward for your hunch.
