Biggest Sporting Events in April 2024

April was a cracking month for the online sports betting industry, with hotly contested matches, nail-biting finishes and winning slips. Here are the online sports betting statistics and outcomes for April 2024:

  • Golf : The Masters at Augusta National delivered spectacular golfing, with fan favourite Scottie Scheffler taking the top spot at -11, a full 4 strokes ahead of second-placed Ludvig Åberg. This was Schefflers 10th career win, his 4th in 2024, and netted him a purse of $3.6 million.

  • Snooker : The World Snooker Championship was a hotly contested event, with defending champ Luca Brecel and potential rival Mark Selby both ousted in the first round. In a fist-clenching 35-frame final, 12th-seated Kyren Wilson won his first-ever World Snooker Championship victory over Jak Jones with a score of 18-14.

  • Horse Racing: The Grand National proved to be a more exciting event than originally anticipated, with the 2023 winner, Corach Rambler, losing his rider at the first fence. The ultimate winner was, however, the 7/1 joint favourite I Am Maximus, who brought home the first-place ribbon for Paul Townsend and Willie Mullins.

  • Tennis : The Madrid Open upset Spanish fans when local favourite Carlos Alcaraz lost in the Men’s Singles Quarterfinals to world no. 5 Andrey Rublev. Rublev beat Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime 4-6, 7-5, 7-5 to win the Men’s Single Finals.

  • Esports : The League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational Chengdu, in China, is currently underway, with players having completed the Play-In Stage. The first bracket will be played from 7 to 12 May, and the second from 14 to 18 May, with the finals being held on 19 May 2024.
