Sheffield United Can Win Away At Hull
There are no Premier League fixtures this evening so your betting diet includes Championship footy and Six Nations egg chasing. For insomniacs or early risers there’s also the final of the men’s 50km mass start cross country skiing from the Winter Olympics. I hope you’ll all be setting your alarms for that. The man from a cold country will probably win the gold medal.
There are no medals up for grabs when Hull host Sheffield United in the Championship. The visitors are 14 places and 33 points ahead of their opponents in this match. Hull are one place above the relegation places while Sheffield United are one place below the promotion places. The match should produce an away win but football is not an exact science.
However, in this case the most obvious outcome should take place. Sheffield lost two games on the bounce but have won their last two fixtures. Hull have only won once over their last 10 matches in the league. United won the League One title last season and were in good shape for another promotion before a blip. They can get back into the top six with a win tonight so SHEFFIELD UNITED are tipped at 17/10 with William Hill.
Italy have never beaten France in the Six Nations and lost heavily in the last meeting in Rome. However, two years ago in the match in France the home team’s winning margin was just two points. The handicap line has been set at 17 points and that looks way too big. France have lost both their matches in the Six Nations so ITALY +17 is the standout bet at 11/10 with Betfair.
Warwick stages a decent handicap chase at 3.30pm which is worth over £18,000 to the winner. Dell’ Arca has turned in some decent efforts in the past and has to be respected off today’s mark. Kayf Adventure has good course form and is a leading contender. However, CALIPTO has the best form on ratings and has a manageable weight so should be backed at 9/2 with Ladbrokes.
