Draw Suits Both Wednesday And Boro
Sheffield Wednesday have made the best of a bad job and are now in the top six in the Championships. They could not make any signings until near the end of the transfer window so had to rush into making additions to the squad. A good run of fixtures and an unbeaten record at home has taken Wednesday into the playoff places. The good work of the last two months can continue at home to Middlesbrough tonight.
One point from the in first three league matches did not augur well for the home team but they have steadied the ship. Boro have the best defensive record in the division and have drawn six of their last nine matches on the road. There are reasons to assume both teams would not be too disappointed with a stalemate so the DRAW is the recommendation and that result is 9/4 with bet365.
Some bright spark scheduled England’s five match One Day International series away to Sri Lanka during the monsoon series. The appetite for international cricket meant this was the only window to play the fixtures but rain has affected each meeting. Only 133.3 overs of the scheduled 300 have been played but England lead 2-0. They are at number one in the ODI world rankings but Sari Lanka are average in the format.
The best bet is that it will be too wet to play all of tomorrow’s fourth ODI which is due to start at 5.15am GMT. There could be a no result or an outcome based on the Duckworth-Lewis Method. At 3/10 with William Hill to win the match ENGLAND are too short to back for the man on the street but any other result is an unlikely outcome if enough overs are bowled but a monsoon could prevent that happening.
The run-up to Christmas seems to start earlier every year and there are far more worse examples than the Book Your Christmas Party At Dundalk Handicap (6.30) at the track tonight. Some stores have been peddling Christmas related products since August so the All-Weather track are relatively late. The course probably now think they have NOTHING TO LOSE and a horse of that name can be backed at 16/1 to win the 13 runner contest over seven furlongs.
