The Whitbread Drinks Could Be On Or In The Blaklion
It’s a question of who wants it more in today’s live matches in the Premier League. Stoke’s need is greater than Liverpool’s at Anfield and Swansea are more desperate for points when they play at home against Chelsea. In predicting the outcome of these two matches it’s a balancing act between desire and ability. We are not suggesting players will not be trying but motivation is a driving force and in pinpointing who that affects most could provide help predict the outcome of these fixtures.
Stoke should have the fight to stay in the match against Liverpool as they have let in just two goals before half time in last 12 matches. Roma looked quite comfortable for 20 minutes in the Champions League but then Liverpool scored five goals without reply. They were brilliant for a big chunk of the match but then the levels of desire dropped and Roma scored two late goals. Jurgen Klopp might not send out his strongest team but his side should eventually do enough and the DRAW/LIVERPOOL option pays 16/5 with William Hill.
Swansea are right back in the relegation dog fight after no wins in six fixtures in the Premier League. They were in trouble when the new manager was appointed and he had the desired affect. However, in recent matches they have again found their level which means they are still facing the nightmare scenario of dropping into the Championship with all its financial implications. Even though Chelsea can still finish fourth that is an unlikely scenario, In this case motivation can help SWANSEA win three vital points and that outcome is 6/1 with Ladbrokes.
It’s the finale of the jumps seasons in Britain and Ireland and all the prizes will be handed out at Sandown and Punchestown. The big betting race of the day is the bet365 Gold Cup which to many people of a certain generation is still the Whitbread. Altior is the best horse in action at Sandown today and Apple’s Jade is the star of the Punchestown show and the double pays 7/4. You won’t get rich combining these horses but BLAKLION can be backed at 7/1 with Coral to win the race formerly known as the Whitbread.
