England Are Fifth Favourites To Win The World Cup
Punters came out on top in the battle with the bookies on Saturday. The well backed favourite in Withhold won the feature race in Britain and the two favourites obliged in the last 16 World Cup ties and there were more than two goals and both teams scored in each match. Punters like to bet on things to happen rather than not happening and that generally means definite results and goals. There are two more knockout matches in this brilliant World Cup today and Flat and jumps racing in Britain and Ireland. Meanwhile ENGLAND are 8/1 with Betfair to win the World Cup.
Croatia could potentially be new winners of the World Cup from the opposite side of the draw to England so the two nations could meet in the final. There were 10 goals in yesterday’s two ties but today’s fixtures could be low scoring. There have been more than two goals in just one of Denmark’s last 11 matches. In a match of few goals CROATIA are the team to back to win in 90 minutes at 20/23 with Coral.
Russia probably exceeded expectations by getting out of the group but the 3-0 loss to Uruguay is more indicative of their ability than wins in their first two matches. Spain have quality all over the field and have not lost in 23 matches. The World Cup loses something when the hosts are eliminated but that is on the cards today. SPAIN are the bet at 4/7 with Ladbrokes to beat Russia in 90 minutes.
There are decent prizes in a hurdle race and chase at Cartmel who stage summer jumping today. The handicap hurdle at 2.45pm is a good opportunity for Leapaway to win a good race. The horse carries a penalty for a win seven days ago but that is manageable. LEAPAWAY should be backed at 3/1 with William Hill.
