Friday sees action from a number of sports to follow, including Championship football, World Championship darts and games from both the European Champions and Challenge Cups in rugby union.
The Championship fixture on offer sees Birmingham City play host to Reading, while topping the bill at the Ally Pally is two-time beaten finalist Michael Smith, who finally broke his Major hoodoo by winning the Grand Slam of earlier this year.
There is also action at the English Open snooker in Brentwood, horse racing which has beaten the weather to follow on our Sports Live Streaming platform and the Mauritius Open golf to keep tabs on with the bet365 Live Golf Tracker.
Both Birmingham City and Reading were expected to be down among the strugglers in the Championship this season, but both are performing to performing to a higher level than that currently.
Indeed, should the Royals take all three points on Friday evening they will move into the play-off places ahead of the rest of the weekend action, while a home win would see the Blues move above their visitors on goal difference.
Last season Reading won both meetings of these two sides by 2-1 scorelines, while two seasons ago it was the Blues who won out 2-1 in both clashes in the Championship.
Another 2-1 victory for Birmingham on Friday evening is priced at 17/2.
What: World Darts Championship, Day Two
Where: Alexandra Palace, London
When: From 12.30, Friday December 16th 2022
How to watch: Sky Sports Main Event & Arena
Odds: Michael van Gerwen 5/2, Gerwyn Price 6/1, Michael Smith 15/2, Peter Wright 10/1, Luke Humphries 14/1
Smith lost in the Ally Pally final in both 2022 and 2019, being beaten by Peter Wright and respectively, while in nine other appearances he has only reached the quarter-finals once.
However, having finally ended a run of eight Major final defeats by seeing off Nathan Aspinall 16-5 in the final of the Grand Slam of Darts last month, many expect Smith to make his strongest challenge yet for a world title.
He opens up on Friday evening against Nathan Rafferty, who edged out Jermaine Wattimena 3-2 in their first-round clash, having had an operation to remove his appendix exactly a week ago.
There are fewer tougher assignments in club rugby than a trip to Dublin to take on Leinster and that is what faces Gloucester on Friday evening.
The Cherry & Whites opened their European adventure with a narrow 22-17 victory over Bordeaux Begles at Kingsholm, while they have won five and lost four to lie in fourth place in the Gallagher Premiership.
boss George Skivington has made no fewer than 13 changes to the XV who began the win against Bordeaux, with Billy Twelvetrees partnering Giorgi Kveseladze in the centres and Ben Meehan captaining from scrum-half.
