Coral offer 20/1 enhanced odds on any goal to be scored in Man City v Arsenal

Coral
This is the only shot at silverware this season for both of these and the pressure perhaps is on the back of Arsene Wenger more. The Gunners have really been struggling lately and are likely going to finish outside of the top four in the Premier League. So this is a big moment for them and this is just the fourth FA Cup clash between the two sides and the first since 1971. The Gunners have lost just one of their last 21 FA Cup games so they have a pretty strong pedigree in the competition. The Citizens played out a 2-2 draw at the Emirates against Arsenal in the Premier League earlier this month having twice taken the lead in the match. The Citizens have alternated between victory and defeat in their last seven appearances at Wembley, beating Liverpool in a penalty shootout last time out in the 2016 League Cup final. This is a great opportunity for Pep Guardiola to edge closer to his first piece of silverware in England and he did win his only previous game as manager at Wembley, when Barcelona beat Man Utd in the 2011 Champions League Final.

Ricky Burns v Julius Indongo Boxing Preview & Odds – 15th April 2017

Sports Betting
It is going to be a huge month of boxing with the bouts of Manny Pacquiao v Amir Khan and Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko on the cards, but this weekend there is an interesting bout coming up for Ricky Burns. He goes into a super-lightweight unification fight on Saturday against the unbeaten IBF and IBO world champion Julius Indonga at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow on Saturday. The two fighters are 34 years old and Burns is keen to show his opponent that he isn’t near retirement yet. That is because Indonga said that he thought that his opponent had retired by now. Indonga is known as a big hitter and won his belt after just thirty seconds against Russia’s Eduard Troyanovsky back in December last year. However, this bout in Glasgow will be just his second fight outside of his home country of Namibia and the Glasgow crowd could help Burns a lot in this one to take on his opponent. Before that win over Troyanovsky, Indonga had won half of his 20 professional fights by a knockout, so he has some power in him. Indonga is also a southpaw, which Burns has struggled against before in his career. WBA world super-lightweight champion Burns has been sparring with southpaws in preparation for this and he has been looking powerful in camp. Burns holds a W41 L5 D1 record from his career and has a 30% knockout rate, which doesn't match up to the 52% that Indongo holds from his career. The two boxers are the same age and the same height, but there is that notable difference between their Orthodox and Southpaw stances which will be interesting. It has been a long way back for Burns after he surrendered his lightweight world title to Terence Crawford back in 2014 and then failed to beat Dejan Zlaticanin for the vacant WBC belt a few months later. He had looked disillusioned with the sports under former promoter frank Warren after training for fights that would ultimately be cancelled. But he is well back on track inside his new camp, at the right weight and Saturday's fight could be a huge stepping stone for him because he could get a trip to Vegas to faces American Adrien Broner.

Snooker World Championship Betting 2017 Winner Odds & Predictions

Mark Selby
The main draw for the Snooker World Championship Betting 2017 starts on April 15th and runs through to the Final on May 1st. This famous tournament is once again being staged at the equally famous Crucible Theatre in Sheffield. This is the final ranking event of the 2016/17 snooker season and going back into action as the defending champion this year is Mark Selby. Selby is trading as 4/1 joint-favourite with online betting site Coral for the Snooker World Championship Betting 2017. He will be running in some confidence as well after claiming the China Open title recently, after edging out Mark Williams 10-8 in the final. That result incidentally, left Williams needing to go through qualifying for the World Championships 2017. That was a big result for the form of Selby, particularly because Judd Trump had crashed against the Iranian World Number 76 Hossein Vafaei in the quarter-finals. Selby has won the World Championships twice in the last three seasons now so is definitely going to take some good backing in his one. Judd Trump is still on the hunt for his first World Championship title. At last year’s event, Trump was stopped in the second round by Ding Junhui. But overall he has had a pretty decent season and punters have backed him into that 4/1 joint-favourite position in Snooker World Championship Betting 2017 Winner Odds alongside Selby. Selby is the number one seed for the tournament, with Judd Trump running as the second seed so they would be kept apart until the final. There is a price of 12/1 at Coral on a Mark Selby/Judd Trump Final at the Crucible this year. During qualifying, Reanne Evans was looking to become the first ever women to make it through to the main draw of the World Championship. She found herself embroiled in a marathon duel with Welshman Lee Walker though and despite fighting back from 6-1 down to 9-6 in the match and looking in control for most of it, she couldn’t finish the job. So while it is Trump and Selby trading at the head of the market, the field is stacked with potential in the likes of Ronnie O’Sullivan, Ding Junhui and Neil Robertson

Snooker World Championship Betting 2017 Winner Odds & Predictions

Judd Trump 4/1, Mark Selby 4/1, Ronnie O’Sullivan 5/1, Ding Junhui 12/1, Neil Robertson 12/1, John Higgins 161/, Barry Hawkins 18/1, Marco Fu 18/1, Shaun Murphy 20/1, Stuart Bingham 25/1, Kyren Wilson 33/1, bar 40/1.

Snooker World Championship Betting 2017 Winner Odds & Predictions

Mark Selby - it has been a big season from Selby, who completed his second Triple Crown, and the jester from Lester is tracking along to finish off the season in some style. He has bagged himself four ranking titles this season already and for many, he will be the frontrunner for the action at The Crucible, especially after his recent win in China. There is no-one can touch his form or success on the snooker circuit this season. Judd Trump - If success is measured only in titles, the Trump’s season has not been right up there. He has claimed the European Masters and the Players Championship titles this season, but his tally for the seasons could have been so much bigger because he has been to at least the semi-finals in six other tournaments this season. So he has been there or thereabouts but he hasn’t been able to convert often enough when the pressure has been at its highest. Perhaps the only thing working in his favour is that after his shock loss in the quarter-final in China recently, he will want to come back with something to prove. Ronnie O’Sullivan - You just never know what you are going to get from the Rocket. He emphatically won the Masters this season but that has been it from him. He really hasn’t had the greatest of seasons by any stretch of the imagination and in turning up at the Shanghai Masters recently, that was his first tournament appearance for five months. He is just a wild dark horse in the tournament and he is up in Selby’s half of the draw. He is a five-time World Champion, but he hasn’t quite been on his game this season. Ding Junhui - He was the runner-up to Selby in last season’s World Championship. Going off of his break-building performance at the Crucible last year he is going to be good outside bet. Ding was running pretty hot through the first half of the season, but he hasn’t been back to a final since losing to Mark Selby at the International Championship back in October last year. Neil Robertson - The Australian has had a disappointingly quiet season. He is a former World Champion but has been well short of that kind of quality this season. He is nothing more than an outsider at the moment for this one as he has suffered some strange setbacks such as his loss against Peter Lines in the UK Championship and getting whitewashed by Ronnie O’Sullivan in the European Masters. It hasn’t happened for him this season.

Snooker World Championship Betting 2017 Winner Predictions

We are going on the basis of elimination in this one. Ding Junhui and Neil Robertson are better players than their current form is showing so they aren’t likely to make a huge impact, particularly in the crowded top half of the draw. The same can be said of Ronnie O’Sullivan who is going to have to pull out all of the stops and then some to work his way through a tough draw to get to the final alone. So that boils down to Trump and Selby. Of the two, Trump having been the nearly-man of the season, actually has a much easier path to the final than Selby does and that has to count for something. For that reason, simply because there are bigger hurdles in the way of Selby, we are going with Trump to show his mettle and respond to that shock defeat in China. Our dark horse each way bets for the Snooker World Championship Betting 2017 will be Marco Fu who had that great run at last season’s championships and who recently went to the final of the Players Championship and who won the Scottish Open this season, to have a good run. The other has to be third seed Stuart Bingham who could benefit hugely from the being in the easiest quarter of the draw.

USA, Canada and Mexico for 2026 World Cup hosting

Football News
The USA, Canada and Mexico have announced that they are throwing down a bid to make a play for the 2026 World Cup this week. This is a historic bid, with three nations joining up for the first time ever to try and lure the World Cup. If the bid is successful, then it would be the first time since the 2002 tournament, which was co-hosted by Japan and South Korea, that the World Cup would be hosted by multiple countries. The field is somewhat limited for 2026 World Cup hosting because it was announced by FIFA that the two previous hosts wouldn’t be able to bid. So with Russia hosting in 2018 and Qatar set for 2022, that ruled out Asia and Europe making a bid. So that just leaves the CONCACAF, the CAF, South America CONMEBOL and Oceania OFC nations to throw forth a bid. Only the latter has never hosted before. There are changes set for the 2026 World cup with the tournament being expanded to a 48 team tournament in a massive 80-game format. Last summer FIFA announced a four-stage bidding process to host the 2026 edition of the World Cup and the decision will be made in May 2020. The USA played hosts in the 1994 World Cup and CONCACAF hasn’t hosted since then. Their bid comes at a time when US and Mexico relations aren’t great and with much furore about the US’s proposed travel bans, it could make life difficult for themselves in the bid. However, US Soccer has said that US President Donald Trump is happy to work with Mexico on the bid. The lion’s share of the games in the proposal would be held in the USA. The proposals of the bid would see the US host 60 games including each fixture from the quarter finals onwards. Then Mexico and Canada would split the remaining 20 fixtures in the tournament equally. Despite just being a 24 team tournament, the 1994 World Cup holds the record for being the most highly attended tournament in this history of the World Cup. The last time Mexico hosted the World Cup was in 1970 and Canada have yet to do so, but they were hosts of the Women’s World Cup in 2015.

Coral offer Double winnings on Arsenal v Man City betting

Coral
One of the top games in the Premier League this weekend is the clash from the Emirates on Sunday afternoon between Arsenal and Manchester City. It was the Citizens who came out on top in the earlier meeting in the season and they will look to drive forward in their current form of seven matches unbeaten in the top flight. As for Arsenal, they have lost four of their last five league games and need a huge response in this big game to stop themselves falling further away from the top four. Before that on Saturday evening, there is a great match up in the Championship play off race. Reading v Leeds is a top clash and this will probably be a tight, tight battle. They are both sat inside the top six and the Whites have a two point advantage over the Royals. If either can collect three points in the game then it would do their chances of locking in a play-off place the world of good. Will the in-form Leeds be able to land the away win? Coral are offering double winning on both Arsenal v Man City and Reading v Leeds fixtures with their Win-Win Get In offer. Place your single bet of £5+ on the 90-minute Match Result market in either of the selected matches before kick-off and if your team wins both halves (wins the first half AND wins the second half), Coral will double your winnings as a CASH payment up to £100. This offer is open to both new and existing customers and you can qualify for both matches with a £5+ Single bet on the 90-minute win-draw-win before kick off. The offer applies to the first real money bet placed on the qualifying market and there is one cash payment per customer per match.

Curling World Championships Betting 2017 Men – Winner Odds & Predictions

Sports Betting
It is off to Edmonton, Canada for the Curling World Championships 2017 and the exciting action on the ice gets underway on April 1st and will draw to its conclusion on the 9th. This is being hosted at the Northlands Coliseum and there are twelve nations in attendance, most of them European. Canada will be defending their title on home soil then after beating Denmark in the final last year for their 35th Curling World Championship title. It’s little surprise then that at Coral, the Canucks are going into this home tournament as outright favourites with Skip Brad Gushue back to add to his title from last year. If ever a nation has been dominant at a sport, then it is Canada with Curling. Their men have won the Curling World Championships 35 times and the second most successful nation behind them in the history of the tournament is Sweden who have collected seven gold medals. So pretty much this is Canada’s title to lose one would imagine, but they have been under increasing pressure from the Swedes in the last few years. Canada have won four of the last seven World Championships, but just one of the last four with Sweden collecting two of the last four. It is Sweden, who are actually the topped ranked nation going into Curling World Championships Betting 2017 with Skip Niklas Edin leading the way again for them. British interest comes in from Scotland who are ranked 16th in the world and they have two-time World Champions David Murdoch back as Skip for them. Scotland’s last time came back in 2008 and aside from Sweden and Canada, the only other nation to have won it since then is Norway in 2014. Along with Canada as hosts, eight teams from the 2016 European Curling Championships (which was on by Sweden) join up. They are Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Russia, Germany, Scotland and Italy along with the Netherlands who were the winners of the World Challenge Games. The United States are there because of their win at the 2017 America's Challenge and the top two from the 2016 Pacific-Asian Curling Champions, Japan and China make up the numbers in at the Curling World Championships 2017.

Curling World Championships Betting 2017 Preview

With so many European nations making up the numbers in this one, it is worth starting with a look at last year’s European Championships. Sweden swept the board winning eight of their nine matches along the way and they took down Norway in a 6-5 win in the Final there. So that speaks to the threat of both of them heading into the Curling World Championships and it wouldn't be a surprise to see them both in the final four. Switzerland and Russia were the other losing semi-finalists, but if you were expecting either of them to come through then it would be Switzerland and they did come out on top in the bronze medal match against the Russians. But it is going to be a big ask for Switzerland to win this one outright, so too Norway. Sweden are just so dominant on the continent at the moment having won the last three European Championship titles on the bounce and four of the last five editions of the tournament, all with Edin as Skip. They are a very strong and settled side and can make a serious title challenge out in Edmonton. The question is, can Canada take them down on home soil? With the extra support behind them, they are naturally going to be a big threat and history is on their side. The Swedes will be looking to make up for a disappointing run last year at the World Championships when they finished sixth in the round robin stage and fell well short of expectations. You would imagine that with the European title under their belt last year, they will be fired up for this one. But then Canada stormed to some impressive form with a W10 L1 record in their matches throughout the tournament last year and you know that they aren’t going to give up much at all this time around in defence of their title. Canada have the chance to get big monument and confidence under their belt as they open against Switzerland on April 1st. Sweden opens against China and then big show and between Canada and Sweden will happen on April 2nd so you can pencil that one in. After the round robin stage, it is a straight shot in the playoffs. The top two in the league play off and the winner goes straight to the final, while the loser of that will get another chance as they play the winner of the knockout match between the third and fourth placed team.

Curling World Championships Betting 2017 Predictions

There’s some top action to come from Edmonton and things look pretty evenly matched between the top-two ranked sides. We would roll with Canada taking the win in this one because of home support on their side. Sweden choked a bit last year, but of course proved themselves in the European Championships, but they may find the challenge of Canada just too much to handle. Look for Norway and Switzerland to make up the top four.

IPL Cricket Betting 2017 – Winner Odds & Predictions

Cricket Betting
The new season of the thrilling IPL gets underway on Wednesday, April 5th with the opening match between the Hyderabad Sunrisers and the Royal Challengers Bangalore raising the curtain on the new season. The IPL player auction is in the bag and that has left the Royal Challengers Bangalore as the outright favourites at a price of 7/2 with Coral to claim this year’s title. The IPL is a Twenty20 event contested by franchise teams. The money which has been thrown at the tournament has made it the most attended cricket league in the world. It attracts players from all over for the fast-paced action across India, and each of the eight teams plays each other twice in a round-robin and then the top four from that go forward to the play-offs. The top two finishers in the league play each other with the winner going through to the final. The loser of that game will play the winner of the match between the third and fourth placed teams in the league to see who makes it through to the final where the winner there will be crowned the IPL champions. It is probably the auction of players which has really hyped up the IPL action. There is an annual action where players are signed and traded and there can only be 10 foreign players in an IPL squad and just four in a match day eleven. There is a salary cap on this which helps to keep the playing field somewhat level and each franchise importantly too must have 6 under 22 players in their squad as well. So with such big contracts tossed around, the best players descend in the world descend on India for a big payday.

IPL Cricket Betting 2017 Betting Preview

Royal Challengers Bangalore 7/2 The Royal Challengers Bangalore finished runners-up last year but they have added England’s T20 specialist Tymal Mills to their ranks. They have been heavily backed to win this year’s tournament and they have some quality players around like AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle, Shane Watson and Virat Kohli who have all been retained. They are strong in all departments and have been cut down in price after the IPL Auction. They may take some stopping as they go in search of their first ever title. They have been the bridesmaid three times before in the final, but never the bride. They're usually favourites and have yet to deliver. Mumbai Indians 5/1 at Coral If there is one team in the IPL this season who can genuinely oppose the Royal Challengers, then it is the Indians. They have balance in abundance throughout their squad and their bowlers have a lot more nous on the surface of things than Bangalore do. They were shockingly bad with the bad last season which saw them fail to make it past the round-robin stage, but they have a wealth of experience and the batting power is there if they can put it together. They have a better bowling attack than the outright favourites do, including bringing in Mitchell Johnson which could be a game changer. Hyderabad Sunrisers 11/2 The Sunrisers are the reigning champions in the IPL and they came from nowhere really last season because they won the whole thing without an international-level spinner in their ranks. Because of their success last season, they didn’t bother picking one up for this season’s tournament in the auction either. They have a massive pace bowling attack including Mustafizur and Bhuv Kumar, it’s a big ask for any team to win this whole thing back to back and they aren't as strong in the batting as they were last term. Rising Pune Supergiants 11/2 The Supergiants finished second from bottom in last season's IPL round robin stage. They gambled massively in the IPL auction, throwing a record-breaking sum of money at England all-rounder Ben Stokes. However, they probably needed to spread that £1.7m around a little better because while they are stacked with spin talent, they are lacking the pace bowling department which will probably mean that they are going to do much rising this season. It could be a tricky season for Steve Smith as skipper having taken over from MS Dhoni. Gujarat Lions 6/1 The Lions are our dark horses for a run at the title this season. They have a lot of energy in their squad and they have some firepower at the top of the order in Brendon McCullum, Jason Roy and Aaron Finch and AJ Tye could squeeze his way into action as well to add to that. They finished third in the league last season and with the addition of Roy through the Auction and arguably the most competitive squad in the whole IPL, they could go places this season. Kolkata Knight Riders 15/2 The Knight Riders are pretty comparative in balance to what the Mumbai Indians have in their ranks. The only difference between the two, the Knight Riders have a younger bowling line up compared to the experienced ageing troops of the Indians. They have a decent amount of depth in this one and they have been crowned IPL Champions twice before and if Chris Lynn turns up in the big bullish mood then they could be very competitive. Delhi Daredevils 8/1 Arguably the Daredevils have the most uninspiring side in the IPL this year and disruptions are likely to make it worse for them. JP Duminy has quite and they have a major injury issue with Quinton de Kock. The Daredevils would have lost them though for South Africa’s tour of England ahead of the play-off stage anyway. There really just isn’t the depth around from them to make any kind of challenge this season. Kings XI Punjab 8/1 There you have the Kings XI Punjab who have managed to win just seven of their 28 games in the IPL in the last couple of years. They badly need a spark of inspiration from somewhere and they could look to their Aussies in Shaun Marsh and Marcus Stoinis to give them that. Eoin Morgan was brought in through the auction and they added a bunch more, but can they play together as a team? There’s a big job ahead for skipper Glenn Maxwell to pull all of this together.

IPL Cricket Betting 2017 Betting Predictions

Our outright favourites for this season’s IPL is going to be the Mumbai Indians. The Royal Challengers Bangalore have choked before and the steady, experienced hands that the Indians have could get them to the title. They have arguably the most balanced squad of all and they can deliver the goods. The raucous Gujarat Lions could make a big impact this season because they can throw tremendous energy at the whole thing and they have some heavy, heavy hitters.

MotoGP Riders Championship Betting 2017 Winner Odds & Predictions

Marc Marquez (ESP/ Honda)
The opening race of the MotoGP Riders Championship 2017 season will roar into action on March 26th. That is the first of 18 Grands Prix that make up the season. The opening spectacle comes from Qatar and it is Marc Marquez who will head back into the season to defend his title as the Spaniard takes his ride for the Repsol Honda Team. That was his third MotoGP title and fifth world title overall last season, and he swept the season with three races to spare. That all came about after reigning champion Jorge Lorenzo had made a great start to the season, but couldn’t sustain his challenge through wet races in mid season. Marquez took five race wins across the season with Lorenzo banking four of them and overall eleven of the 18 races in the season were won by a Spaniard. Fellow countrymen Lorenzo and Marquez have been having a ding-dong battle at the top of the MotoGP for the last seven season now, with them splitting three titles each and Australia’s Casey Stoner the only other man to get in on the title action in that span with a win in the 2011 season. Will anyone be able to break up the dominance that the two of them have laid down?

MotoGP Riders Championship Betting Preview

Between them, you would imagine that Lorenzo and Marquez are going to get at least half of the 18 Grands Prix titles that are up for grabs. So that doesn’t leave a lot of meat on the bone for the other riders really. Last season there were notable first wins for Cal Crutchlow, Jack Miller, Andrea Iannone and Maverick Vinales at the premier class. That was the first time ever that four first-time winners had emerged from a single season and hopefully that will translate into this being a wide open and competitive season. There was a span of eight races last season where eight different riders each won a race in a remarkable stretch. There was also a record nine different winners across the season too. Perhaps most notable of all was the victory from Maverick Vinales at the British Grand Prix. The Spaniard has been very well backed in MotoGP Riders Championship Betting 2017 to the point where is 6/5 favourite at Coral to win the opening race of the season in Qatar and he is second favourite in the season outright to land the title. The youngster is a previous Moto3 World Championship and the Yamaha rider won the best rookie award in the MotoGP class in 2015. With his first top division win under his belt last season, where he finished fourth in the final standings, much more is expected from him this season than the four podium finishes he record last term. Can the 22 year old make such a big impact to knock off legends Marquez and Lorenzo? It looks a bit of a stretch with those two still running strongly. Britain’s Cal Crutchlow, like Vinales is still something of a rookie at this level and from a betting perspective it is hard to see them coming through the pack, especially down the latter stretch when the pressure starts mounting to pick up points. Once Marquez got himself going in the second half of the season, he wasn’t going to lose his momentum that he gained. So someone would need  fast start against him to challenge and would have to look at how well Lorenzo’s Yamaha went last season over the early stages with three wins in six and two pole positions. It was only when things got wet across Europe in the middle part of the season did he go off the boil. However, Lorenzo has ended his 9 year relationship with Yamaha and he moves to Ducati to pair up with Dovizioso. He either knows something very special or he is taking a step backwards because there hasn’t been a title for Ducati since Casey Stoner’s win in 2007. So that just heaps more favouritism to Marquez who stays with Honda. With Vinales now getting a Yamaha ride, you can see why his stock is rising and he is a fantastic price with Coral to finish second in the Championship favorite Marquez in a 1-2 forecast. If Lorenzo is going backwards slight this year, no-one else looks ready to step in. Valentino Rossi will continue to have his hits and his misses and that means that he is may be worth opposing in favour of compatriot Andrea Dovizioso to finish above him this season. Dovizioso put in some good rides last season with five podium finishes including one win and if this season is going to be as wide open as we believe, then the margin between them is going to much narrower this season. Look for Marquez to retain his title, but for a big season from Vinales.
