THE CHAMPIONS League Final will draw the eyes of the sporting world on Saturday night and with the Football League Playoffs, Aviva Premiership final and Monaco Grand Prix – there's plenty at stake this weekend!

No matter what you fancy you can take part in Five for a Ton, the free game that offers a £100 Free Bet to the most prolific tipsters. Pick your best bet at odds no shorter than 4/6 at Sportingbet, then tune in at for the weekly codeword.

Simply email both to and if you complete the challenge, you'll get your just rewards.

Barcelona are 4/9 to claim the Champions League trophy and a more attractive 19/20 to complete the job inside 90 minutes. The Catalans have been lauded around the world, while the current Man United side are deemed a lesser team than the side which lost to Barca in 2009.

Sir Alex Ferguson loves to defy a critic though and at 13/8 To Lift the Trophy – and 11/4 to pull it off in normal time – it could yet be worth siding with the Premier League legend.

Don't forget you can bet in:play throughout the game – so tip a winner at any time, back a goal in the next 15 minutes or take your pick from loads more markets with most comprehensive live betting service online!

Champions League glory might garner greater respect but in terms of value, Bank Holiday Monday's Championship Playoff between Swansea and Reading is the game that returns the most financial reward.

The Welsh club are 27/20 favourites (8/11 To Be Promoted) to win the £90m game, while their Berkshire-based opponents are priced up at 7/4 (evens To Be Promoted).

The lower leagues should offer some contrasting drama, given Huddersfield (4/5 To Be Promoted) v Peterborough (9/10 To Be Promoted) is expected to reward goal-hungry punters, while Stevenage (31/20) are expected to try and stifle Torquay (31/20).

If you think the clashes at Wembley and Old Trafford add glamour to the sporting weekend, then it's fitting the Monaco Grand Prix is also on the calendar.

Sebastian Vettel leads the Drivers' Championship by 41 points but has never won the famous street race, unlike two-time winner Fernando Alonso, who impressed in Thursday’s practice sessions.

There's plenty at stake in the world of rugby union too, as the mighty Leicester go to war with Saracens in the Aviva Premiership final, looking to make it three straight titles.

The Handicap suggests a tight game, however, with the Tigers available at 5/6 -3 points. You can back Saracens at evens with the equivalent head start, at 8/5 in the Match Prices or spot the value in the Winning Margin, First Scoring Play and Half-Time/Full-Time markets.
