Can Messi Score At Hat-Trick Today?
He’s rubbish that Ronaldo! Couldn’t hit a barn door. That might be the case but he has now scored at least one goal in four successive World Cups and he is one of only four players to have done that. Ronaldo scored his career 51st hat-trick against Spain and now plays against the two weaker teams in the group. RONALDO is good enough to score another two-hat tricks which would make his current price of 2/1 with Coral to be the leading scorer at the World Cup the bet of the century.
Lionel Messi has also scored for Argentina at the World Cups in 2006, 2010 and 2014 and it’s his turn today. He plays for Argentina against Iceland in Group D in a match his country should win. Iceland over performed at Euro 2016 and their 5-0 defeat to France was more indicative of their world ranking than the win against England who were abysmal. MESSI is 20/1 with Paddy Power to score three goals or more today.
The match bet of the four matches in the World Cup is CROATIA at 4/5 with William Hill to beat Nigeria. Croatia have conceded one goal or less in their last 14 competitive matches and Nigeria are not prolific. In midfield Luka Modric mixes it with the best for Real Madrid. He provides the creativity in front of a strong defence and goalkeeper. In the other matches France will be too good for Australia and the match between Peru and Denmark is difficult to call.
The most lucrative racing fixture is at York and the feature race is the handicap over six furlongs at 3.35pm. There are 20 horses declared to run which means each way bets will be settled at one quarter the odds for four places and some bookmakers may payout on five. FOXTROT LADY is improving and gets a five pound weight allowance due to the inexperienced jockey. The horse is the bet at 7/1 with Ladbrokes.
