Joshua v Takam: SportNation Offering 33/1 to New Customers This Weekend

This Saturday’s world heavyweight title fight hasn’t quite gone to plan with a late change of opponent forced by injury but Britain’s Anthony Joshua will still start as favourite where he lines up against Carlos Takam this weekend.

The standard market price on the defending champion has dropped even further following the late switch so, a new customer deal worth a potential 33/1 if Joshua wins has to be looked at. The promo is from SportNation and if you don’t already have an account here, this is what you need to do.

Signing Up

As we mentioned this is a deal for new customers to SportNation so the first and most obvious place to start is with a sign up for a new account. You can head across via this link and register with just a few basic details and as a small point, the bookmaker also asks that you follow them on Twitter or like their Facebook page.

They helpfully provide links so this can be done very quickly and it’s a good idea to follow on social media as you will keep up to date with all the latest offer and promos.
From here, make a deposit of at least £10.00 via debit or credit card and you must then stake the fixed amount of £1.00 on Anthony Joshua to beat Carlos Takam when the two men meet on Saturday October 28.

If that bet is a winner then you will be paid out at a flat 33/1 and your returns will arrive as Free Bet Tokens on Monday October 30, following the fight. SportNation refer to their free bets as Bonus Funds and they do come with wagering requirements. Players must play through the bonus figure 5x at odds of 2.00 (Even Money) or greater before any profits can be withdrawn.

Those are the specific terms and conditions but we recommend just checking the full list of ts and cs to make sure you are happy before going ahead.

Market Prices

The markets reacted quickly to news of Joshua’s opponent and if you were looking to back AJ in the standard betting, the best price on a straight win stands at a very short 1/25 with MarathonBet. In fact, most bookies are at the 1/50 mark and in some places the defending champion is as short as 1/66.

In contrast, the best win odds for Carlos Takam stand at 33/2 – also with MarathonBet – so while we always say that nothing is ever guaranteed, this does look to be one of the stronger enhanced odds deals for new customers that we’ve seen over the past few weeks.

It’s easy to see why those market prices are in effect: over 19 professional fights, Joshua has won all 19 and all of those wins have been by knockout. His opponent Carlos Takam, has enjoyed a reasonable career, 35 of his 39 fights but at 36, the Frenchman’s best days are behind him and it would be a real shock if he were to win on Saturday.

If you agree and are a new customer to SportNation, you can get involved in a promo that could lead to a significant lift on the standard prices on an Anthony Joshua victory.
