RACING TIP - We really like this one, and we are giving it out for FREE use. However, we are going all-in today, and if you want the other four it’s time to visit our friend Mr Paypal!! To join Racing Premium firstname.lastname@example.org —————— TRINITY STAR is very much a course specialist, and he comes into this on the back of an improved effort at Newcastle. The argument is if the 8 year old can do well at another track, he should be even better here. Laura Coughlan should handle him well, and she gets to take 5 pounds off his back. However, he hasn’t won for a while, and we believe there is a fly in the ointment in the shape of another CD winner QUOTELINE DIRECT. Micky Hammond’s 6 year old got into all sorts of trouble behind EDGAR ALLAN POE, and under the circumstances he showed enough. The selection should be well handled by his 3 pound claimer, and we have him down has a stronger stayer than the first mentioned. This ground looks perfect, and the race should be set to suit!
PREMIUM FOOTBALL PICK - We have two tonight to build on our winning streak, this is the one we are giving for free use. Please note we won’t be giving many for Freemium users, it’s not economically viable! ———————— In traditional leagues sports modelling is generally straightforward, and in the group stage of Europa/Champions league it’s the same. However, at the qualification stage it’s all about doing the homework, and over the past few seasons we have done particularly well. Lets test the water with a couple for this evening——————— Many pundits are asked how Celtic would perform in the English Premier league, it’s a stupid question. The reason, The Hoops are perennial Scottish champions without having to spend like English clubs. If they used the same XI in the EPL, they wouldn’t be top half. And, that’s the thing, if Celtic was in the EPL they would buy more quality to compete. According to squad valuations, Championship sides such has Fulham & Middlesbrough are worth substantially more! What we can confirm is Celtic are particularly good at beating-up smaller clubs. At this stage last season they won the opening game against Alashkert 0-3, and they did the same in the reverse match. And, while Celtic could only draw in Rosenborg, they where simply defending a (3-1) lead from the first match. Some smart players come out of Bosnia, and no doubt FK Sarajevo have a couple of hidden gems. To be fair the hosts got past the first round of Europa league qualification last season, but they probably wish they hadn’t. Afterall, in the second round they where annihilated (0-8) by Italian side Atalanta in this stadium! PS - Sarajevo didn’t do much in recently friendly defeats to Domzale (lost 3-2) and Slovacko (0-2). And, from what we are seeing, they are without defenders! Celtics problems will start at an higher level than this, and according to a couple of recent friendly wins they look good to get the season started!
PREMIUM WTA TIP - We had 4 winners from our six bets yesterday. It’s been a really good tournament for ourselves and subscribers, and we are going with three today. This is the one we are giving away for FREE use! ————— On monday, both players spent about the same time on court. Johanna Konta did fantastically well to come back from a set down and beat Petra Kvitova like she did. The Brit is a former (2017) semi finalist here, and she is looking better than ever coming into the quarters! Barbora Stycova came from 7-5 5-2 down to beat Elise Mertens, it was an incredible comeback from the 33 year old. Strycova will certainly feel she has a better chance against Konta rather than Kvitova, so maybe she will give her a psychological boost! The Czech girl is a former quarter finalist, but she’s never progressed beyond this stage of the tournament! One thing is certain, if Strycova gives Konta the same leeway has yesterday, her opponent will take it. The other thing is Barbora does tend to fade at the business end of majors, and that’s another reason for taking Konta to win!
PREMIUM RACING - We had a non runner yesterday, so we are replacing with this one for free use———— Happy to see PASS THE GIN drop back to five furlongs. While Andrew Balding’s thee year old has been expensive to follow, he’s had valid excuses. Dropping back to the minimum trip is a big tick in the box, and the other is having Oisin Murphy back in the saddle. This is a decent prize, and fast ground will help his cause. WEDDING DATE is in form, but no guarantee Richard Hannon’s runner will run to the same level here.
WTA BETTING PREVIEW - If you would like to join WTA Premium it’s €300 to the end of the season (end November), or €150 per month (email@example.com) . We have six bets for todays R4, this is one we are adding for Free use! ————Barbora Strycova was suggesting this could be her last Wimbledon, suggesting she wants to leave the sport on her terms. Whatever the situation, the 33 year old had a fantastic first week. On saturday, Strycova defied the odds to beat Kiki Bertens in straight sets. While the first set was close, the Czech girl played some supreme tennis and ran away with the second. Elise Mertens showed a lot of guts to beat Qiang Wang. However, one interesting stat to come out of that match, the Chinese girl converted just 1/15 break points. That compared to 4/13 for Mertens who also served 6 aces!! Mertens won the only head to head at last years US open, albeit in was a very close match. We are of the opinion that Strycova has a bigger advantage on grass, and the way she’s been playing this week suggests she’s at the top of her game! Our biggest worry for the Czech girl is stage fright, although in 2014 she progressed to the QF of Wimbledon. Whatever, Strycova is really impressing, and playing this to the same level should be good enough!
PREMIUM RACING PICK — We shall slow down with free premium bets next week, hope this one helps you out ————— NIKKI STEEL was a bit unlucky the last twice, but it was his own doing with mistakes. Market Rasen isn’t very forgiving, i wouldn’t want him over this track. OVERTOUJAY is a bit high in the weights, while AGENTLEMAN doesn’t win very often. WEST WIZARD is a course and distance winner, but we prefer VERY FIRST TIME. He’s having his second run for the skeletons today, and he’s got a very interesting h’cap mark. Dropping back in trip could be key, especially over this entertaining track.
BONUS PICK - No tennis today, so have a second one on us! ———Following KuPS win in Honka, Ilves dropped to 2nd in the league. However, they played three games less than that club, and 4 less then third placed HJK. The IPA come into this on the back of three straight wins, and they have only conceded 7 goals in 12 games. While the hosts are just 2-3-0 at home, their is no reason to believe they won’t perform at the Tammelan. In fact, they have already beaten SJK in a cup game here, a competition they went on to win. Jarrko Wiss’s side lost just one match since last october, and they are 19-5-1 over those 25 games. From the three games last year Ilves won 2 and drew the other! SJK are a decent side, and they should finish in the top half. With that said, they lost to easier opponents than this!! Team news couldn’t be much better for the host, and they look full of confidence for now!
PREMIUM FOOTBALL PICK - Three winners and a push yesterday, let the profits keep coming. Here is one of our four for today, if you want to get the discounted season ticket get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org ——————— We would have been sceptical about betting Brazil to cover the spread if this was a group game, but it’s a final and that changes the dynamics. What can we say other than Peru have been fantastically efficient throughout this tournament. In the recent semi final they beat Chile by a whopping 3-0, their best result to date. However, we should at least point out that the Incas had just 35% possession, and they scored with each of their three shots on target. The other thing is their opponent didn’t find the net with any of their 19 goal attempts, of which seven tested the keeper. In fact, Chile also missed a penalty, and the result was one which should be put down to experience. Brazil allowed Argentina plenty of the ball, albeit the Selecão where always in control. Tite’s team went on to win that match by a comfortable 2-0, and that meant they still haven’t conceded a goal! The other obvious issue for Peru, back in the group stage they where hammered by todays opponent (5-0). And, if anything, that scoreline could have been bigger again! Peru did incredibly well to make it to this stage, and in boxing terms they have a punchers chance. What more can we add, Brazil should kick ass!
PREMIUM RACING PICK - 19.27% ROI from 1871 picks, that’s 36,054 profit for 100 stakes over the past 15.5 months — interesting in making an average of 2200 per month for 100 stakes? email@example.com —————. SHEPPARDS PURSE won his last race, but his career record of 3/53 is very modest. ONLY SPOOFING likes it here, but he tends to miss the break and that’s not ideal over 5F. We are keen to get with WAR WHISPER, because he’s particularly suited by a stiff finish like this. Paul Midgley’s runner showed much better at York, and he’s just one pound higher than his last win.
PREMIUM PICK - If you want to book a full year of syndicate football picks, do it now. Like you may know, we don’t discount packages once the season begins — firstname.lastname@example.org ——————— Summer leagues have been going nicely for followers, but we do accept limits are much lower. Nevertheless, they are high enough for most of our subscribers, and the big leagues are just around the corner. It’s hard to explain how Rovaniema can go from a team which finished second last year to a moderate tenth this season. The club didn’t make many changes during the closed season, something which makes their current predicament even more unfathomable. The other worry for new coach Pasi Tutti is the team took just 1 point from two games under his guidance, and next week they have Europa league football. And, for todays game they are without suspended defender Taiwo, and they have a few niggley injuries from last weeks home draw with bottom club Kokkola!! Mariehamn lost back to back home games against two of the best sides in the division, namely HJK (0-2) and Ilves (cup 0-2). On an upbeat note the visitors haven’t lost any of their last four away games, and on the road they have draw with top of the table Ilves (0-0), plus won in Kokkola and Honka. Last but by no means least, the visits won the reverse match 2-0. And, here comes the punchline — they managed it (red card 26 mins) with just ten men!! We mention often enough no advantage for home teams in this league!
PREMIUM WTA - 5/5 yesterday, 5/6 the day before. Today we have four bets, and we are giving this one for free use. Nearly all the players are saying the courts are slower this year, maybe that is helping Kiki Bertens. Whatever the case, the 27 year old is a genuine top ten player, and it will take a good one to stop her. 33 year old Barbora Strycova fits into that category, and she’s particularly solid on grass. The Czech girl made a recent semi final of Birmingham, and our only criticism of Strycova is she tends to struggle at the business end of tournaments. With that said, she’s a former quarter finalist here, and this is just the third round. Strycova’s play against both Siegemund and Tsurenko was as good as ever, and on this surface she must have a chance to lower her opponents colours. Furthermore, Bertens only beat a couple of non surface base-liners!
PREMIUM FOOTBALL BET (we won't be adding many premium picks for free use, because it costs us hosting and it's not economically clever to pay for others to win) - Please note we have filed this under a separate section, because some people get confused when we switch a league for one day use! ———————This is the top fixture in this weeks Norway Eliteserien. Third placed Odds entertain top of the league Molde at the Skagerak arena this evening, and we fancy the hosts to get an important three points! Odds lost (3-0) their last game at 2nd placed Bodo/Glimt, we can’t argue with the result. However, on a more positive note, the hosts responded well to the other defeats this season by winning their next games. In fact, Odd went into last weeks match on the back of losing just one in their last ten, and another stand-out is they are the perfect 6-0-0 at home! In the last round Molde dropped points against Brann (1-1). The visitors are just 3-1-3 on the road, and last season they took just one point from todays opponent. That was a 1-1 draw in this stadium during a splendid run of (9-2-0) for Molde, in the reverse match Odd won 0-1. With regards to past meetings between the pair, Molde won just one from 12 in this stadium! Coach Dag-Eilev Fagermo will be without suspended Fredrik Jensen today, but the visitors are without first choice GK Andreas Linde and they have European league next week!
