There could be a cricket score in a football match today when the best team in the Premier League play just about the worst at home. Manchester City score goals for fun and West Ham are shipping goals in droves so City to win to nil and -3 on the handicap are bets to consider. However, the football bet of the day is a DRAW in the south coast derby between Bournemouth and Southampton at 23/20 with Betfair.
Charley Hoffman has a five shot lead after the third round of the Hero World Challenge but Tiger Woods suffered the bounce factor. A horse that has been absent from the track for a long time can have a decent first run back and then run poorly in the net start. After rounds of 69 and 68 WOODS came back down to earth with a 75 on Saturday and he is now 200/1 with one bookie to win the tournament he promotes.
Australia are potentially heading for a score of over 500 in their first innings in the 2nd Test. When most sides are seven wickets down that’s just about it but the Aussies have a tail that often produces the goods. England have their backs to the walls and even if Ben Stokes joins the squad it could be too late. At dinner (this is day-nighter) ENGLAND were 20/1 with Ladbrokes to win this match.
There are three Grade 1 races at Fairyhouse in Ireland today. The Hatton’s Grace Hurdle (1.30pm) brings together two of the best horses in training. Nichols Canyon and Apple’s Jade have won races at the highest level and on ratings have a massive edge over the rest of the field. An alternative who has little chance on form is a course and distance winner. AUGUSTA KATE can cause an upset at 28/1 with Betfair.
