General: Moments of the Month: April Review

April has been an action-packed month of sport which included The Masters at Augusta, the Grand National and plenty of football highlights as the big domestic and European competitions moved thrillingly towards their climax.

The annual World Snooker Championship also got underway at the Crucible, while there were Formula 1 races in Melbourne and Imola and Tyson Fury had too much for fellow Briton Dillian Whyte in their big heavyweight showdown in front of 94,000 fans at Wembley.

Stunning Scheffler wins The Masters

American Scottie Scheffler, who is 14/1 to win The Open at St Andrews in July, maintained his superb 2022 form when he won his first major, finishing three strokes clear of Rory McIlroy at Augusta when all of his exploits were available to follow on bet365's Live Golf Tracker.

Scheffler came into The Masters as world number one after also winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational and WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in the build-up to the iconic Augusta event and he lived up to expectations in a tournament that also saw the eagerly-awaited return of Tiger Woods.

The 15-time major winner made his first PGA Tour start since the 2020 Masters and, after impressively making the cut, went on to finish 47th.

Liverpool's Quadruple bid still on

In football, Liverpool's quest for an historic quadruple remains on after Jurgen Klopp's side made it through to the FA Cup final, while they have one foot in the Champions League final and are still only a point behind leaders Man City in the Premier League. After the two title rivals played out an intense 2-2 draw in the league, the Reds then beat City at Wembley 3-2 to take their place in the FA Cup final, where they will face Chelsea, who overcame Crystal Palace in their last four tie.

In Europe, Liverpool hold a 2-0 lead over Villarreal ahead of next week's Champions League semi-final second legs, and if they progress to that final they could meet City again after Pep Guardiola's side won their first leg against Real Madrid 4-3 in a classic at the Etihad. Liverpool are 10/11 to win the Champions League in May, City are 6/5.

Surprise winner of National

Noble Yeats, trained by Emmet Mullins and ridden by the retiring Sam Waley-Cohen, managed a stunning Grand National upset when the 50/1 shot won at Aintree, finishing ahead of Any Second Now and Delta Work, which was part of our Sports Live Streaming.

Verstappen back on track

In F1, Ferrari's Charles Leclerc won the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne, before reigning world champion Max Verstappen triumphed in the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at Imola. Leclerc is 27 points clear at the top of the world drivers' standings and is 1/1 to be crowned world champion this year with Verstappen 1/1.

Crunch time at the Crucible

Snooker's World Championship has progressed in the second half of April to the semi-final stage where Ronnie O'Sullivan, John Higgins, Mark Williams and Judd Trump are all still in contention to win the top prize.

Fury outclasses Whyte then retires

The big heavyweight fight in April was comfortably won by Fury who retained his WBC title at Wembley. The 'Gypsy King' produced a stunning one-punch stoppage in the sixth round to beat Whyte and afterwards claimed he is retiring from boxing.
