Salah Is A Decent Price To Score The First Goal
There is a lull in proceedings in the world of football betting with no major fixtures in Europe today. The countdown continues for the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool in Kiev on Saturday. If you are going to the match and don’t have a place one of the locals has set up a Facebook page offering an informal service that is akin to Airbnb. The alternative is paying massively over the odds for a hotel room. Meanwhile in a small town in northern Egypt the residents are drooling over one of their own making an impact in the biggest domestic match in the world. MOHAMED SALAH is 9/2 with William Hill to score the first goal.
If you are stuck for something to do this afternoon you could watch and bet on the Indian Premier League playoff match between the home team in Hyderabad and Chennai. Its wham bam cricket in India and each team has 20 overs to amass a total of about 200 runs. Scoring at a run a ball just doesn’t hack it in this form of cricket and you have to be scoring at 10 runs an over to be competitive. The two teams had an identical win/loss record during the regular season but Hyderabad topped the table thanks to a marginally better run rate. CHENNAI have more playoff experience so look a good bet at 4/5 with bet365 to win this match.
The racing in Britain and Ireland is a little bit like the calm before the storm. In the next four weeks there is the Derby and Oaks and Royal Ascot which is the Flat’s equivalent of the Cheltenham Festival. There is plenty of action today but it’s more about quantity than quality. The principle meeting is on the Flat at Nottingham but the seven races only offer £60,000 in total prize money. The fillies’ handicap at 3.25 has the biggest prize for the winner but that is less than 10 grand. VERANDAH is more about potential than form on the track but it could all come right today and a win for the John Gosden trained horse is 11/4 with Coral.
