The England/Kane Double Is Now The Favourite
Bookmakers reported that Germany’s late goal on against Sweden on Saturday cost the industry a fortune. It meant the three favourites had won and both teams scored in each match. That is the perfect scenario for punters but last night it was a different story. Only Uruguay of the four favourites obliged and both Portugal and Spain drew their matches as odds-on favourites. The bookies could probably have won it all back but we never hear about bookie bonanza results. England and Harry Kane won’t be having sleepless nights about betting outcomes but the World Cup Winner/Top Goal Scorer DOUBLE is now the favourite at 16/1 with Boylesports.
There are final matches in Group C and D today and only one of the favourites is less than even money. Argentina must beat Nigeria to qualify from Group D but are still relying on Iceland not beating Croatia and having a better goal difference. Argentina are in disarray on and off the field and Lionel Messi is having a torrid time. There is no confidence in the team so Nigeria can force a DRAW and that outcome is 16/5 with William Hill. CROATIA have qualified for the last 16 and they can confirm winning the group by beating Iceland at 6/5 with Ladbrokes.
France have qualified from Group C and can win the group by avoiding defeat against Denmark. If the match is drawn both nations progress to the next round and Australia are out even if they beat Peru in the other match. The winners of Group C play the second place team from Group D in the round of the last 16. France are in the driving seat and may settle for the DRAW against Denmark that takes them through which can be backed at 33/20 with Coral. All the incentive is with AUSTRALIA and they are tipped to beat Peru at 2/1 with Betfair.
The racing fare is average today but that is only to be expected on the Tuesday after Royal Ascot. There is no race at five meetings in Britain and Ireland worth more than £10,000 but the 10 furlongs handicap at Beverley looks an interesting contest. The footballer ZLATAN is not playing in the World Cup but the horse with the same name can win the Beverley race at 11/4 with William Hill.
