Are England A Good Thing To Win World Cup Group G?
The last domestic fixture in the UK has now been played so the focus is now on the World Cup. England have friendly fixtures at home against Nigeria and Costa Rica and then the real action begins against Tunisia on June 18th. Tunisia and England’s opponents in their second group match, Panama, are the 30th and 31st biggest priced teams in outright World Cup betting.
On rankings and form Saudi Arabia are only inferior to England’s first two opponents. The final fixture against Belgium in theory should decide the group and England’s match in the round of the last 16. Experience has taught us not to expect the outcome to be so straightforward but ENGLAND are 5/4 with Ladbrokes to win Group G so at those odds are you a backer or layer?
In the past British men’s tennis was an embarrassment like the England national football team can be at times. Andy Murray changed all that but he didn’t come through the system. He moved to Spain as a youngster and he is self made rather than being a result of investment in the sport in the UK.
In Murray’s absence Kyle Edmund is Britain’s best hope in the French Open. He reached the semi-finals of the Australian Open earlier this year but is yet to win an ATP World Tour title. EDMUND is 10/11 with William Hill to beat Alex De Minaur in straight sets in the first round of second Grand Slam tournament of the season.
It’s the Epsom Oaks on Friday and the Derby on the same track the following day. The Derby is the most important and prestigious Flat race in the world so it’s not a surprise that the racing is relatively ordinary at the start of the week. The two meetings in Ireland both offer over £100,000 in prize money while the five Flat cards in the UK are worth no more than £65,000 to connections. The richest race of the day is at Gowran Park at 6.45. TURRET ROCKS is racing at a lower grade than in the past and can win this race at 9/4 with Coral.
