Sports Schedule: Thursday 30th April

A look at what’s on Thursday’s agenda in the world of sports

There’s plenty of horse racing action from across the globe, including a pair of interesting meets from across the pond. Elsewhere, there’s a couple of early morning football matches, darts, Esports and more.

We’re looking ahead to all of the action before it gets underway, with all events scheduled to take place at the time of writing.

Horse Racing

Our coverage starts in Japan, where we have three race meetings from Sonoda, Kasamatsu and Oi. Action gets underway at 02:45 in Sonoda, before Kasamatsu hosts its first at 03:00 and Oi at 06:40.

There’s early morning action Down Under too, with six meetings from 03:42 when the Cairns card gets started. We’ll cover the meets from Geraldton, Pakenham, Wagga, Wangaratta and Wyong too.

We’ve got odds from Amal, Bergsaker and Boden in Sweden, starting from 11:20, as well as a solitary meeting from Norway where the Forus course hosts a six-race card from 15:20.

Finally, we head Stateside where we’ve got two quality meetings from Gulfstream Park and Oaklawn Park. Gulfstream Park hosts an 11-race card from 18:00, before the nine-race meet at Oaklawn Park takes place from 19:05.

Darts

We’re onto day 14 of the PDC Home Tour, where four more contenders step up to the oche to top the Group 14 standings.

The day’s action gets underway from 19:30, where Chris Dobey is the 2/9 favourite to beat Ciaran Teehan, who’s priced up at 3/1.

Ron Meulenkamp and Kai Fan Leung also line up in the group, and they take each other on in the second match of the group in what looks like the hardest match to call. Our traders can’t split the pair as you can find 5/6 on either thrower to win.

The Modus Icons of Darts continues with day four of week four’s matches. They’ll start the day’s arrows action from 11:00, before the Modus Night at the Darts takes place from 18:00.

The Czech Premier League returns for its second and final night of the week, with play due to commence from 19:00.

Football

We’ve got a pair of early morning matches from the Nicaraguan Primera Division, as the second leg of the Tourneo de Clausura play-off semi-finals get underway from 02:00.

First up, Real Esteli host Diriangen FC. The home side start the second leg with a 1-0 advantage and are the 3/5 favourites to win again. Diriangen are 5/1 outsiders to win.

Then at 03:00, Managua FC take on CD Walter Ferreti in an all or nothing second leg, after the first game finished 0-0. We’ve got the home side as 2/3 favourites to win, with CD Walter Ferreti 21/5 longshots.

Golf

The GCU Championship continues in the Outlaw Tour from Grand Canyon University, Phoenix, Arizona. Day one leader KK Limbhasut will be hard to catch after an opening course record of 61.

We’ll be covering the last round In-Play with 2-ball and 3-ball markets. The leaders will get the day’s action underway at 15:30.

Basketball

After a 99-81 win on the road last time out, Yulon Luxgen Dinos host Taiwan Beer in game six of the Taiwan Super Basketball League play-off final at 10:00.

Yulon take a 3-2 lead in the seven-game series and could win the final on home soil. They go into the match as 13/10 underdogs, with Taiwan Beer still the 8/15 favourites to take it to game seven.

Snooker

The Armenian Snooker Championship continues, with a further three matches taking place from 07:00. We’ll have In-Play betting on all three matches.
