Leicester have a decent record against West Ham and have beaten their opponents in tonight’s fixture in London five times in the last six meetings. Those wins have not been decisive and on each occasion the margin of victory has been one goal.
If Leicester beat West Ham by any score the atmosphere at the London (Olympic) Stadium would become even more toxic. West Ham are a mess on and off the field and LEICESTER can benefit and are 13/8 with William Hill to win this match.
At one stage during the second day of the First Test England were trading at 2.0 (even money) on betting exchanges. Their price to win the match has fluctuated in-running and their biggest price has been 5.0 which equates to 4/1. Australia are odds-on heading into the third day but you can back the DRAW at 4/1. That seems a big price in a low scoring match on a pitch that doesn’t make things easier for the bowlers. Scoring runs is not easy so a definite outcome may not transpire.
You can stay up late or get up early to watch England play Tonga in the semi-finals of the Rugby League World Cup. Time differences with Auckland means the match starts at 5am but it could be worth being awake at the ungodly hour. England have not reached the World Cup final since 1995 and Tonga will be a tough nut to crack in the Southern Hemisphere but the heart and head says ENGLAND should be backed at 8/13 with Ladbrokes to make the final which will probably be against Australia.
There is an open looking Class 2 handicap at Ascot today. Michael Owen is riding in a charity race at the meeting but Kilcrea Vale has a better chance of scoring in the 2.40pm race than the former footballer in his contest. The horse was useful over hurdles and has translated that form over the bigger obstacles. With lots of action taking place in Australasia there is a decent bet to be had closer to home and that is KILCREA VALE at 9/4 with Coral at Ascot this afternoon.
