The world of sports betting was rocked this week regarding the revelations about match fixing in tennis. It is the third biggest sport for gamblers with billions bet on matches world wide. It is a known fact that in the hey day of the American Mafia they were infamous for rigging games and in recent times the Russian equivalent and Asian Syndicates have been responsible for criminal activities within tennis.
Even Novak Djokovic has revealed that in 2007 he was offered £100,000 to lose a game however why it has taken him over eight years to speak up is beyond me. Tennis is one of the easiest sports to fix as any sport where only two people are participating is tailor made for fixing.
Mind you none of us should be surprised as rigging results has gone on since the times of David and Goliath or the great Chariot race in the film Ben Hur. In fact it’s much harder to fix any sport these days with all the technology and paper trails to track down perpetrators. We have to accept there will always be people who will do anything for money not just in sport but in all walks of life including Government, business, crime, etc, etc, it’s a flaw a tiny percent of the human race have and will never change as long as we have the sky and the stars above us.
Its been another good week for the Eye-Catchers and also Betting Opportunity. I must draw your attention to the Eye-Catchers as we looked to be on for a fourth losing day in a row last Saturday when the first selection bit the dust however the next two duly obliged and also gave us a 32/1 winning double which means we are well ahead on the month yet again.
The moral of this is never ever get discouraged after a losing run regardless of which tipster you follow.
Now with the risk of getting boring as I have banged on about this over the last few weeks. It is in my opinion that my Eye-Catcher service is so superior to any other advisory service that even if it was ten times the price that we are charging you should get involved as I guarantee it will make us all a lucrative second income.
You see with this service I believe it’s not about signing new clients up every week but more about retaining those who join as they will be so happy with the regular profits and low risk strategy they will never want to leave or look for another advisor.
At last a decent days racing and for Howies Hottie I’m playing in the 2.10 Lingfield a 13 furlong handicap. The tip is Peeps trained by Mark Tompkins and actually owned by the brilliant actress Judy Dench. The filly gets in here off bottom weight and a slight drop in trip might just help her get the gold medal or at least a podium finish.
Moonday Sun trainer P.McEntee – The gelding landed a massive gamble last week backed from 14/1 into 4/1. The horse was highly regarded when coming over from France and trained by Amanda Perret but lost its way and changed stables a few times. He is still very well handicapped and could win again.
Pearl Acclaim trainer D.Nicholls – Ran a cracker at Chelmsford and seems to be finding his form and is another who is on a winning mark.
Thimaar trainer Sarah Hollinshead – This gelding will win at a massive price sooner or later. He was a classy stayer back in the day with John Gosden and is now approaching a basement rating.
Born Survivor trainer D.Skelton – He got stuck in the mud at Warwick and is far better than he showed.
Reblis trainer G.Moore – The gelding ran well in a staying hurdle at plumpton and can win over hurdles or fences as he is now on a competitive mark.
Back next Wednesday be lucky.
