Uruguay Have Been The Best All Round Team In The World Cup
At the start of the World Cup no team left in England’s side of the draw was less than 16/1 in the outright winner betting. Germany, Spain and Argentina, all former winners, are out and there is now a lopsided draw. England have a great opportunity to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time since Italia 90. This time next week England could be facing a last four match against Brazil or be back home in the UK. The shock results have opened up the tournament and ENGLAND can benefit and win the World Cup for the second time and that outcome is 6/1 with Betfair.
There are four more ties in the round of the last 16 today and tomorrow and then there are two days with no World Cup action. The top goalscorer market has been turned upsides down with the elimination of Spain and Portugal. Diego Costa and Cristiano Ronaldo have gone which means it has become a market dominated by Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku. Uruguay have been one of the best teams and can go all the way so their striker, EDINSON CAVANI, looks a big price at 20/1 with Ladbrokes to be the leading scorer in the World Cup.
Andy Murray has withdrawn from Wimbledon which starts today and will be all over the BBC for the next two weeks. In a World Cup year when England are involved the tennis takes a back seat. Roger Federer is the defending champion and the player from Switzerland could win the title again. His country are still in the World Cup but Spain are out so RAFAEL NADAL can win something for his country. He is 7/1 with Paddy Power to be the Wimbledon champion for the second time.
The main race of the week is the Eclipse Stakes at Sandown on Saturday. This is an all-aged Group 1 contest over one mile and two furlongs. It is the first major race of the season that brings together the Classic generation and older horses. Three-year-olds receive a 10 pound weight-for-age allowance which means Masar has a huge advantage. However, the Derby winner has to be supplemented so the horse in second place at Epson, ROARING LION, is the bet at 5/2 with William Hill.
