Darts Masters 2017 Betting Preview & Winner Odds

Darts Betting

The next big darts action coming up on the 2017 calendar is the Darts Masters 2017 Betting. This tournament from the Arena:MK starts on January 27th and this is a quick fire event which pulls into its conclusion on the 29th. So as you would expect there is only a small field turning up for this one and only the top 16 players in the PDC Order of Merit get a place at the Unibet Masters. This is only the fifth edition of the non-ranking tournament and worryingly for the rest of the field, it is Michael van Gerwen who is heading to Milton Keynes as favourite.

After recently claiming the World Championship, the big Dutchman is going to be pretty hard to knock off his perch as the reigning Masters champion. Mighty Mike’s trading at a price of 8/13 with Coral in Darts Masters 2017 Betting. He is going to take some stopping and not even his old rival Phil Taylor is second favourite in the market, as The Power is going off at a pretty big price of 16/1 to take the crown. It leaves Gary Andersen at 5/1 as potentially the strongest challenger to MVG’s reign in MK, but even he was destroyed by Van Gerwen in the final of the World Championships recently.

Can anyone really mount a big challenge to Michael van Gerwen? That is pretty much the only question on the minds of punters going into this one. It is hard to see just who that player is going to be and no-one in his side of the draw is probably going to get a lot of interest from punters in his one. Four matches is all it takes to win the Darts Masters. Michael van Gerwen has proven that he is more than capable as he goes in search of his third title on the bounce in the event.

Darts Masters 2017 Betting Odds

Michael van Gerwen 8/13, Gary Anderson 5/1, Peter Wright 10/1, Phil Taylor 14/1, Adrian Lewis 28/1, Dave Chisnall 33/1, James Wade 33/1, Raymond van Barneveld 33/1, 50/1 bar

Darts Masters 2017 Draw

It is just a straight knockout all the way with the top seed facing the lowest seed, the second seed facing the 15th seed etc in the first round. The first round and the quarter finals both go over the best of 19 legs, with the semi finals and the final itself going to the best of 21 legs. The quarter finals, semi finals and final itself will all be played on January 29th.

Top Half of the Draw
Michael van Gerwen (1) v Simon Whitlock (16)
Mensur Suljovic (8) v Jelle Klaasen (9)
AdDrian Lewis (4) v Kim Huybrechts (13)
James Wade (5) v Robert Thornton (12)

Bottom Half of the Draw
Gary Anderson (2), v Benito van de Pas (15)
Dave Chisnall (7) v Raymond van Barneveld (10)
Peter Wright (3) v Ian White (14)
Phil Taylor (6) v Michael Smith (11)

Darts Masters 2017 Betting Predictions

There is only likely going to be one winner in this and that is Van Gerwen. But then he is such short value that he isn’t going to have a lot of appeal for punters. He has the easiest opener he can get and neither Adrian Lewis or James Wade really look on top of their game enough to raise much of a challenge to him in his half of the draw, so it should be plain sailing all the way through to the showcase match for the Dutchman. So your best bet is in going to looking at the Coral To Reach Final Market.

This obviously is producing shorter odds than if it were a bigger field in attendance, but you can still find some value around. The bottom half of the draw is fascinating because of Anderson, Taylor, Wright and Chisnall all in the mix there. No-one has an easy draw ahead of them and that makes this a great section to go and pull out a To Reach Final selection with. But who to go for? We are going to go against the grain and plump for Dave Chisnall. He has been to the final of the Masters once before and he carried good form to the quarter finals of the World Championship recently.

He’s a big price because he has Van Barneveld and Anderson in his path in his quarter and he is still looking for his first PDC Premier Event title, but is capable of producing. While MVG is likely to walk away with this one, look for a run from the Englishman nevertheless.

Coral offer Win Win Get In for Man Utd v Liverpool betting

Coral

The heavyweight clash of Manchester United v Liverpool betting is going to be the big highlight of the Premier League coupon this weekend. These two bitter rivals will be going at it at Old Trafford, looking for a huge three points that would serve each of them well. Liverpool have been one of the main contenders in the title race this season but starting the weekend in second place five points behind leaders Chelsea, the pressure is on them to not drop points. So can they bag themselves a valuable three points at Old Trafford?

United though have the head to head form in this fixture, having won 11 of the last 14 at home against Liverpool in the Premier League. Jose Mourinho’s men have put together a six match winning streak a well in the top flight and so they are in some hot form. But their back line, which has kept just three clean sheets at home this season is going to come under some heavy pressure from the creative and powerful Liverpool attack. United managed just 35% in their 0-0 draw at Anfield earlier in the season against Liverpool.

Go and place a single bet of £5+ on the Match Result market for Manchester United v Liverpool betting and if your team wins both halves of the match, Coral will double your winnings as a CASH payment.

This offer closes out at 16:00 GMT Sunday 15th January and this does apply to win bets only. The maximum payout return on the offer is £100.

Coral offer 33/1 enhanced odds on Man Utd or Liverpool to win

Coral

Who will be on top in the big Old Trafford clash between Manchester United and Liverpool on Sunday afternoon? This is the Premier League highlight of the weekend and it will be the 50th Premier League meeting between the two giants of English football. The stakes are going to be high in this one as well, with Liverpool having big title ambitions this season, while Manchester United will want maximum points to continue their upward swing of form.

United have won 11 of the last 14 Premier League games at Old Trafford against Liverpool and with them being on a six match winning streak in the league at the moment they are going as favourites. However, Liverpool are the Premier League top goalscorers this season and they have creativity to unlock the United defence, which has only earned the three clean sheets on home soil this season. So will that extra fire power that Liverpool have won the day, or will United’s solid, pragmatic approach win out?

Register an account with online betting site Coral and take 33/1 enhanced odds on either Man Utd or Liverpool to win! Plus, get a £5 free bet if your wager loses! Just choose your offer!

Snooker Masters 2017 Betting Preview & Winner Odds

Snooker Betting

Arguably one of the most famous snooker tournaments in the world, The Masters, the biggest non-ranking tournament that is on the top of every player’s list, swings back into action this month. The action from the Alexandra Palace gets underway on January 15th and runs through to January 22nd.

This is a relatively small tournament with just the sixteen players competing for the big prize, which is more about prestige and honour and being able to join that Masters winners club than it is about the money. Ronnie O’Sullivan goes back to the tournament as defending champion and is therefore top seed, while World Number One Mark Selby is second seed. The rest of the places in the Snooker Masters 2017 were then filled with the top sixteen in the world.

Snooker Masters 2017 Infographic

There is just the one player making his Masters debut this season and that is Kyren Wilson. The winner of the tournament will walk away with a cool £200,000 in prize money. Last season it was Ronnie O’Sullivan who landed the prize money as he smashed Barry Hawkins 10-1 in a bit of a non-contest in the final. That was O’Sullivan’s first tournament back after eight months away from the game and he still destroyed the field. O’Sullivan is 11/8 at Coral to go out and sweep the Ally Pally field again.

Will the Rocket be able to hold on to his title? Last season we also saw arguably the greatest ever Masters match up in the quarter final between Judd Trump and Neil Robertson, with six 100+ breaks in the 11-frame match. For the last decade the winners circle hasn’t been attended by a wide variety of players as seven of the last ten editions have been won by either Mark Selby or Ronnie O’Sullivan. Will the Rocket be able to set a new record of seven Masters titles won during his career? He currently sits level on six titles with Stephen Hendry.

Snooker Masters 2017 Betting Odds

Player Betting Odds
Ronnie O’Sullivan 11/4
Mark Selby 7/2
Judd Trump 15/2
John Higgins 8/1
Neil Robertson 10/1
Ding Junhui 11/1
Shaun Murphy 16/1
Stuart Bingham 25/1
Marco Fu 28/1

Snooker Masters 2017 Betting Draw

You have to look at the draw of course for some betting planning because if there are big early clashes between two contenders, then you have to put some further consideration in. Obviously the top two seeds, O’Sullivan and Selby are on opposite sides of the draw so they could only meet up in the final. They have met three times before in the final of the Masters and Selby holds a 2-1 head to head lead from those clashes.

Selby has a little bit of an easier route to the final than O’Sullivan does in this one. Selby opens against 15th seed Mark Williams and then would face either Shaun Murphy or last year’s losing finalist Barry Hawkins in the second road. The highest seed that Selby would have to get past on the way to the final is third seed Stuart Bingham, although Ding Junhui remains a dangerous floater in the half.

As for O’Sullivan he could meet up with Neil Robertson in the quarter final sand then have to go through either Judd Trump or John Higgins in the semi finals. The Rocket opens against 12th seed Liang Wenbo. So O’Sullivan could be facing tougher games down the line than what Shelby is going to have to do. It’s a tougher run for O’Sullivan that what it was last year, that’s for sure, despite beating Selby in the quarter finals.

First Round Masters 2017 Draw

Ronnie O’Sullivan v Liang Wenbo
Neil Robertson v Ali Carter
Judd Trump v Marco Fu
John Higgins v Mark Allen
Stuart Bingham v Joe Perry
Ding Junhui v Kyren Wilson
Shaun Murphy v Barry Hawkins
Mark Selby v Mark Williams

Snooker Masters 2017 To Reach Final Betting Odds

Ronnie O’Sullivan 5/4, Mark Selby 7/4, John Higgins 3/1, Judd Trump 3/1, Ding Junhui 9/2, Neil Robertson 5/1, Shaun Murphy 7/1, Stuart Bingham 10/1, Barry Kiwanis 14/1, Mark Allen 14/1, Marco Fu 14/1, 20/1 bar

Snooker Masters 2017 Betting Predictions

It has pretty much been Selby and O’Sullivan dominating this for some time. Only Shaun Murphy in 2015, Neil Robertson in 2012 and Ding Junhui in 2011 have managed to break them up. However, this year we are going to go outside of the box and suggest that there is some massive dark horse value running in Judd Trump at 3/1 with Coral. Well, he’s not exactly a dark horse, but he was in cracking form in last year’s Masters, but that epic quarter final took something out of him and then he went down to Barry Hawkins surprisingly in the semi’s.

He should be back stronger for that experience this year and even though he is lumped in the congested top half, with eyes and pressure on others, he could slide through. Look for Selby to still dominate the bottom half of the draw as there’s no clash with Ronnie O’Sullivan until the final potentially for him this season. This is likely to be a wide open tournament and ultimately it may just boil down to whether or not O’Sullivan is in the mood. But the Rocket is too short of a price in the outright, so look for Trump or Selby to rule.

BDO World Darts Championship 2017 Betting Preview & Winner Odds

Darts Betting

Not had enough darts action to kick off the new year with? Well after the end of the PDC World Championship, the BDO World Darts Championship 2017 swings into town from the famous Lakeside Country Club in Frimley Green, Surrey. The tournament is much shorter than the PDC version as it runs for just the week from January 7th through to the 15th. This year will see the tournament celebrate its 40th edition and it will be the 32nd time that it has been hosted at the Lakeside.

Unless You are an avid darts follower, there aren’t the household names on the BDO like there is in the PDC but this makes the tournament quite wide open and very competitive and as well as the men’s tournament going off here is a women’s BDO World Darts Championship 2017 running at the same time. So there is plenty of action to come and over the first round of action the tournament is the best of 5 sets, with the second round the best of 7, the quarter finals the best of 9, the semi finals the best of 11 and the final itself which is set to be played on January 15th being the best of 13 sets.

Top seed of the BDO World Darts Championship 2017 is Glen Durrant who was upset in last season’s quarter finals by Scott Waites, who went on to claim the title. So Durrant is going to be hankering to make a better first of things this time around and he is the top seed for the tournament and is running at a price of 15/8 with bookmaker Coral to claim the crown. He pretty much has been the man to beat this season having claimed nine ranking titles to make it the most successful year of his career.

Can Durrant land that elusive world title to his trophy cabinet? Two-time BDO World Champion Waites incidentally is trading at price of 12/1 to get his hands on the title for the third time while three-time world champion Martin Adams is out a price of 3/1. World number three Danny Noppert is a 6/1 shot and this is where the draw becomes interesting. Noppert and second seed Scott Mitchell occupy the bottom half so they would be the mainly opposing Durrant when it comes to the final showdown. Noppert and Mitchell would meet in the semi finals.

BDO World Darts Championship 2017 Betting Odds

Glen Durrant 13/8, Danny Noppert 6/1, Scott Waites 12/1, Jamie Hughes 12/1, Scott Mitchell 14/1, Dean Reynolds 16/1, Martin Adams 18/1, Jeff Smith 25/1, Mark McGeeney 25/1, Wesley Harms 28/1, Geert de Vos 28/1, Darius Labanauskas 40/1, Darryl Fitton 40/1, 50/1 bar

BDO World Darts Championship 2017 Draw

The tournament is a straight shoot out all the way and the first round of action runs from January 7th through to the tenth. The second round action is completed over two days on January 11th and 12th, wit the quarter finals are booked for January 13th and the semi finals on the 14th. Then you have the big final showdown on the 15th from the Lakeside.

Lakeside 2017 Men’s First Round Draw

Top Half
Glen Durrant (1) v Nick Kenny
Martin Phillips (16) v Hogan/Sawyer
Darius Labanauskas (8) v Conan Whitehead
Wesley Harms (9) v Ratajski/Mandigers
Martin Adams (5) v Nilsson/Ryan Joyce
Brian Dawson (12) v Asada/ J Smith
Jamie Hughes (4) v Martin Atkins
Jim Williams (13) v Tony O’Shea

Bottom Half
Scott Mitchell (2) v Hendriks/Janssen/McGrath
Geert de Vos (15) v R Smith/Van Baelen
Dean Reynolds (7) v Pip Blackwell
Darryl Fitton (10) v Wouter Vaes
Scott Waites (6) v Caldwell/Harbour
Mark McGeeney (11) v James Hurrell
Danny Noppert (3) v Cameron/Hendriks
Richard Veenstra (14) v Ross Montgomery

BDO World Darts Championship 2017

Durrant has been pretty much untouchable this season. While you have experienced hands of the likes of Scott Waites and Martin Adams knocking around the draw, this is an occasion where the favourite actually looks the firm favourite to land the title win. Durrant has been so dominant that it is going to take something special to knock him off his perch in this one. After such a successful year, rounding it off with his maiden world title has to be expected here.

We like the draw that Scott Mitchell has a little bit more than what would lie ahead for Danny Noppert, so there is a decent chance that the 2015 World Championship winner could come through his half of the draw. As for Noppert, while h has had a good season including a win at the Scottish Open, this is his first appearance at the BDO World Championships and that’s going to be a big ask for him to go and win the tournament on his debut and the presence of Waites in his quarter is probably going to be too tough for him to get through.

So when all’s said and done, if Durrant, with an easier quarter than he had last year in the draw, doesn’t get it done this time around, it will be a bit of a surprise at the Lakeside in the BDO World Darts Championship 2017 betting.

ATP Brisbane 2017 Tennis Betting Preview & Winner Odds

Tennis Betting

It is a year of new adventures for the start of the ATP and for this first week of action in the new year, the big guns are split across a couple of tournaments. There is Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic duking it out in Doha, while Rafa Nadal headlines the action from Brisbane at 7/2 favourite with Coral. With the Australian Open coming up later in the month, this is good preparation work to kick the season off with here and actually this is the strongest field in the history of the tournament.

Half of the top ten players in the Emirates ATP Ranking are in the mix with world No. 3 and reigning champion Milos Raonic, No. 4 Stan Wawrinka, No. 5 Kei Nishikori, No. 8 Dominic Thiem and No. 9 Rafael Nadal going for the title. Reigning champion Raonic is holding top seed in a tournament for the first time in his career and he will be looking to build on 2015 which was a career best season for him. He took down Federer in last season’s final of Brisbane for his eighth career ATP World Tour title.

Kei Nishikori has been to the semi-final of Brisbane the time before but never any further. As for Wawrinka and Nadal, they are making their debuts at the tournament. This could be a big year for youngster Dominic Thiem who was the youngest player to finish in the top ten rankings last year and he played the second most amount of matches last season (behind Murray) and also played in the most tournaments last term too. Can he take things up to the next level?

David Ferrer slipped backwards a bit last year ending the tour outside of the top twenty, so he has work to put in to raise his stock again. It will just be so interesting to see how Nadal and Wawrinka go in this one, as well as how Raonic handles the pressure of being a top seed. There should be a tremendous amount of competitive action coming from Brisbane in the early build up to the Australian Open 2017.

ATP Brisbane 2017 Tennis Betting Odds

Rafael Nadal 7/2, Stanislas Wawrinka 10/3, Kei Nishikori 4/1, Milos Raonic 10/3, Dominic Thiem 10/1, Grigor Dimitrov 11/1, David Ferrer 12/1, Gilles Simon 25/1, Lucas Pouille 28/1, 33/1 bar

ATP Brisbane 2017 Tennis Betting Predictions

Fiercely competitive is how we would expect this tournament to be to kick off the new year of ATP Tour action. It’s hard to nail down a winner in this one as you have four evenly priced players at the head of the market which you won’t see happening too often. So it is to the draw that we will look to for an edge. We would swing with Wawrinka here who has a great strike rate in finals. His challenge really won’t’ start until the semi finals where he would likely meet either Ferrer or Nishikori. The road for the rest involves just that little bit more.

ATP Doha 2017 Tennis Betting Preview & Winner Odds

Tennis Betting

A new year and the start of the top ATP Tour action is underway and Novak Djokovic is out to make get the new calendar year underway with a bang. He had his struggles towards the back end of last season, losing his number one spot to Andy Murray. This tournament is a regular start of the big guns in the new calendar year and this is one of just two ATP World Tour events which are held in the Middle east across the season.

Joining Djokovic in Doha is Andy Murray so there is a big showdown coming between Murray, who won the tournament twice before in back to back years in 2008 and 2009 and Novak Djokovic who is the current reigning champion. This is actually the first time that the top two players in the world have attended Doha since back in 2011 when then world number one Rafael Nadal and number two Roger Federer were in the mix (Federer winning).

It’s not worth looking outside of the big players in the for ATP Doha 2017 Tennis Betting because a top ten player has been crowned the champion in each of the last eight eight year and in all but one of the last twelve editions of the tournament. Murray was the man in form at the back end of last season and he takes a 24 match winning streak into the event with him, winning five titles on the track to close out 2016.

So will he be able to keep up his winning momentum? This is the first time he has been back to Doha since 2014 when he made a second round exit, his earliest exit from his four previous appearances. Murray and Djokovic are 6/4 joint favourites in the field and they are kept apart in the draw so you would only see them square off in the final itself. Frankly the rest of the field is pretty weak and no-one comes in under double figures to claim the title.

ATP Doha 2017 Tennis Betting Odds

Andy Murray 6/4, Novak Djokovic 6/4, David Goffin 20/1, Tomas Berdych 14/1, Jo Wilfried Tsonga 14/1, Ivo Karlovic 25/1, Fernando Verdasco 28/1, Philipp Kohlschreiber 40/1, 50/1 bar

ATP Doha 2017 Tennis Betting Predictions

Murray was the man on top but the winter break should see Djokovic come back refreshed and revitalised. He has something extra to prove now as he will want to reclaim his form and his world number one spot as well and that will make him very dangerous for this one. Even though Murray is the one running in that hot stopped by the break could put a damper on this opening tournament for him. Djokovic to take the title.

Amanda Nunes v Ronda Rousey UFC Predictions and Odds – 31st December 2017

Sports Betting

It has taken around a year, but Ronda Rousey is back on the UFC card. Since losing her crown to Holly Holm in November 2015, the fighting star has taken something of a low profile approach to her life. She is still a massive draw though of course and now she steps back into the octagon for the first time since that loss and it remains to be seen whether or not she will be the same fighter when she gets back.

Rousey will challenge Amanda Nunes on Saturday and while Rousey is an odds-on price of 5/8 at Coral to go and take the win, punters are seeing the value in Nunes at 13/10.

There’s no doubt that she is going to be on a mission to try and win her belt back, but it seems like it is a bit of a curse to be holding it because it keeps changing hands. Holm lost the title in her first defence against Miesha Tate, the Tate saw it go through her fingers to end up in the hands of Nunes. Nunes is running on a four-fight winning streak after brutally stopping Miesha Tate to win the belt during that sequence.

The loss against Holm was the first of Rousey’s career and it was devastating because it broke down the walls of invincibility that surrounded her. The “Lioness” Nunes will probably not be fearing Rousey as much as she would have done before that defeat which makes Saturday’s bout even more interesting.

This is a cracking division in the UFC and so once against the Women’s Bantamweight title is up for grabs. Nunes has never submitted in her pro-career and is fierce enough to take the initiative in this fight, particularly if Rousey is off-balance on her high-profile return to action. But then arguably Rousey is still the best woman fighter ever in the history of the UFC and only two of her 13 professional fights have gone past the first round.

Rousey really defined the Bantamweight division in the UFC but now her place in it is in serious jeopardy. Nunes is a beast and there is huge value in backing her to take the win in this one. If Rousey’s veneer has worn off since that harrowing defeat against Holm then she is going to be there for the taking. Rousey turned up at the weigh-in and then promptly disappeared immediately without a word. That’s not the pre-Holm Rousey.

King George VI Chase 2016 Prediction and Odds

Coral

What would the Festive period be without The King George VI Chase? Colin Tizzard has pretty much scared off the rest of the field running scared with Thistlecrack and Cue Card running in the field which will have a maximum of seven. The two stablemates are lining up at the head of the market of the Boxing Day race which has seen Vroum Vroum Mag and Valseur Lido both withdraw already. So those two big Irish withdrawals could be made worse by Road To Riches still being something of a doubt to make the starting line after recovering from surgery.

So the Kempton clash has Cue Card out as favourite at a price of 11/8 with Coral and he is the defending champion for the contest. Stablemate Thistlecrack is running at 6/4 with online bookmaker Coral. So there is mouthwatering showdown the cards here and the inclusion of Thistlecrack who is still a novice over the fences let’s not forget, has made up for the withdrawal of 2015 Gold Cup winner Coneygree.

So while Thistlecrack proved himself as a cracking daredevil over the hurdles, he has only had three races in his short chasing career. But Thistlecrack, who gave up the World Hurdle for a shot at this, is still expected to put down a stern challenge to last year’s King George winner Cue Card. Paddy Brennan goes on Cue Card while Tom Scudamore will be in the seat for Thistlecrack. For Cue Card there is the chance of him to land a £1m bonus for winning the Betfair Chase, King George and Gold Cup during his career. Will he be thwarted by his stablemate?

Cue Card is officially rated 2lb higher than Thistlecrack and the latter hasn’t taken on anything of the calibre of Cue Card in his career. Josses Hill is going as third favourite and will only have appeal for punters if they think that Cue Card and Thistlecrack are going to mismanage the fences. Josses Hill has never been the most natural jumper but he has looked far better this season and took out Tea For Two in the Peterborough Chase in his last appearance. While Josses Hill has won over the Kempton Course twice before, he hasn’t gone this distance.

King George VI Chase betting Odds 2016

Cue Card 11/8, Thistlecrack 6/4, Josses Hill 11/1, Tea For Two 16/1, Silviniaco Conti 25/1, Road To Riches 25/1, Roi Des Francs 50/1.

Once you are in, all that you have to do then is stake a cumulative total of at least £25 on any sports markets with them (there has to be qualifying odds of even money or greater) from Monday through Thursday in a qualifying week.

Then on a Friday in that given week at 6pm, Coral will credit you with a £5 free bet to use over the weekend, obviously as long as you have met the qualifying criteria.

The qualifying week runs from 00:01 Monday until 23:59 on Thursday of the respective game week. You don’t’ have to meet the qualifying stakes with one bet, you could of course play a 25 win single and hit the target or alternatively you could make 25 individual £1 win singles or whatever combination of bet that you could come up with. As long as all selections are evens or greater you can even have an 11 pence Goliath as part of your weekly tally.

Again as long as each selection in a multiple bet is at odds of evens or greater, and any straight line accumulators must have cumulative odds of even money or greater. All qualifying bets must be settled prior to 23:59 Thursday of each week.

Example:

Monday – £2.50 bet at 2/1 on Tennis
Tuesday – £7.50 Acca at 6/4 on Racing
Wednesday – £5 bet at 6/1 on Football
Thursday – £5 each way bet at EVS on Greyhounds
Total staked = £25 with all bets over Evs

Once you have opted in and met the qualifying criteria, you will receive a £5 free bet credited and that free Coral bet can be used on any sports market at odds of 1/2 (1.5) or greater and must be staked in full. Register an account with online betting site Coral and after registering, go and bet £5 with your first wager on the account and in return you will get a free bet £20 back from them!
