European PGA – The Desert Classic winner odds & predictions

Golf Betting
European PGA Golf Preview - January 17th, 2019 The European PGA tour moves to the west coast of the USA this week for the Desert Classic. This is the 60th anniversary of the tournament which is hosted out in California at Palm Springs. This is a pro-am event hosted across three different courses. In use will be the PGA West Stadium course, the PGA West Nicklaus tournament course and La Quinta country club. Spain’s Jon Rahm is the 7/1 outright favourite to win this week* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 15 at 00:52 AM)

The Desert Classic betting odds*

John Rahm 7/1 Justin Rose 9/1 Patrick Cantlay 16/1 Charles Howell III 20/1 Adam Hadwin 25/1 Andrew Putnam 30/1 Aaron Wise 35/1 Abraham Ancer 35/1 Luke List 35/1 Chez Reavie 40/1 Phil Mickelson 40/1 Patton Kizzire 45/1 Scott Piercy 45/1 Kevin Kisner 45/1 50/1 bar * (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 15th at 00:52 AM) This is a popular pro-am event and heading up the market is John Rahm. He carded an eighth-place finish to start the season off with at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. It was a pretty solid effort from him and it was straight after his win at the Hero World Challenge back at the start of December last year in Albany. Rahm is the reigning champion at the tournament so the Spaniard will be a popular pick this week. Let’s not forget that Rahm started last season so well with a second at the Tournament of Champions and a win at the CareerBuilder Challenge. The other big name at the head of the field is current world number one, Justin Rose. This will be Rose’s first action since his third place at the Hero World Challenge tournament in December.

American Winners

It may be worth looking at an American winner though and skipping over the top two. The reason for that is it has been an American who has won the title in all but three of the last eighteen editions of the tournament. Jon Rahm's win twelve months ago saw him become the first non-American to win it since Jhonattan Vegas in 2011. The top American in this year’s field is Patrick Cantlay, currently ranked 19th in the world. So he may pop up with a little more appeal for punters in the tournament. It is worth remembering that this is still early season stuff so players are still getting their eye in a bit. Charles Howell could be worth another look this week with back to back top fifteen finishes this season from his two starts. That’s a pretty consistent run and back in 2013, he finished as runner up in the tournament. Another player who has come up with a good result at the tournament recently is Canada’s Adam Hadwin. He was second in 2017 and has another shot at 25/1 odds* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 15th at 3:42 pm) Bud Cauley and Brian Harman are another couple of players from further down the pecking order who have churned out some decent results in the past few years at the courses. There is also two-time winner Bill Haas back for another crack. He won the tournament in 2010 and then again in 2015 and he is just one of eight players to have won it on more than one occasion. Also in the field is Phil Mickelson who has won it twice.

Prediction

Granted it’s not the deepest of fields to pick from and it is a pro-am event which distractions can happen. But we are going to stick with the recent trend of American winners by and large. We are going to skip over picking an actual outright and lean on a nice pick of 7/4 and 6/4 respectively on Charles Howell II and Patrick Cantlay both securing a top ten finish* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 15th at 3:42 pm).

Abu Dhabi Championship Golf Winner Odds & Predictions

Golf Betting
Abu Dhabi Championships 2019 Preview - 16th January, 2019 The European PGA starts the new season of action and there is a world class event going down. It is the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship. This is a pretty new event in terms of golf spectacles really because the inaugural edition was only back in 2006. Last year it was Tommy Fleetwood who came out swinging by getting his hands on the title. He is back as a strong contender twelve months on, but it is Justin Johnson who will tee up as the 11/2 outright favourite* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 15th at 3:42 pm)

Abu Dhabi Championship Odds*

Dustin Johnson 11/2 Tommy Fleetwood 10/1 Brooks Koepka 10/1 Henrik Stenson 16/1 Louis Oosthuizen 18/1 Thomas Pieters 20/1 Tyrrell Hatton 22/1 Rafael Cabrera Bello 25/1 Haotong Li 28/1 Thorbjørn Olesen 30/1 Matt Wallace 30/1 Brendan Grace 33/1 Lee Westwood 35/1 Byeong Hun An 40/1 Martin Kaymer 40/1 Tom Lewis 45/1 Lucas Bjerregaard 45/1 50/1 bar * (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 15th, 2019 at 3:46 pm)

Early start

Make a note that this one starts on Wednesday, January 16th instead of the usual Thursday start that tournaments get. That is because of the 2019 Asian Cup and working around that.

Can Fleetwood get three-peat?

Englishman Tommy Fleetwood came up with back to back titles at the Abu Dhabi Championship twelve months ago. It wasn’t necessarily the greatest show of distance driving from him but that’s a not major factor at this tournament. So in eyeing up a player this year’s field, you may want to look for accuracy over distance. Greens In Regulation looks to be the forward for your Abu Dhabi Championship betting this week.

Repeat Winners

Something else that the tournament has churned up recently is repeat winners. Paul Casey won it twice in three years. Martin Kaymer won it three times and now you have Tommy Fleetwood who has won it back to back. So there is something behind the old course form factor going into this one really.

The Main Contenders

Dustin Johnson is back for another crack at the European event and he turned up a couple of years ago and actually played his way into contention. Given his status in the World over the last couple of years, it is no great surprise that really he is going off as the 11/2 favourite, but is that a price that will particularly appeal for punters in this first event of the lucrative Rolex series* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 15th, 2019 at 3:46 pm)? Fellow American Brooks Koepka is right up there at the head of the market and this will be his second attempt at the tournament. His first was back in 2014 when he pretty much had a tournament to forget and didn't get to the weekend. He is a tremendous player, of course, a three-time major champion, but is a bit of an unknown quantity in this. He at least has had some action this year with an appearance at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. There is, of course, Tommy Fleetwood who has clear course form. The one negative against him perhaps is that this will be his first appearance for 2019. So he hasn’t had a competitive warm up to get his teeth into head of the title defence. But then again he knows what he is doing at this event and will have done everything else possible to prepare. This is a great field for a great tournament and Henrik Stenson continues his run of appearing in every edition so far. He hasn’t managed to stick the win on the board yet though and it would be a surprise to see him win it this go around. He is still working his way back to full fitness after the problem with his elbow last year.

Predictions

It is a tough tournament to call because there really doesn't look to be a great deal of value on the front-runners. Considering that this is still the early season then it is probably worth skipping the outrights until we see new year form and so instead we are sticking with the top ten finish market. There some options become a little clearer with Fleetwood for example at even money to at least get in the top ten* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 15th, 2019 at 3:46 pm). Digging a little deeper down the field Thorbjorn Olesen and Branden Grace both look decent enough options at 5/2 and 7/2 respectively* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 15th, 2019 at 3:46 pm).

Rocky Fielding v Saul Alvarez Boxing Winner Odds & Predictions

Sports Betting
Rocky v Alvarez Boxing Preview - Sunday, December 16th - 3.00 am You are going to have to stay up late on Saturday night to get a glimpse of this much-hyped about. The fight is expected to start at 3.00 am on Sunday morning (UK Time) from New York. England’s Rocky Fielding will be making the first defence of his WBA Super Middleweight title as he takes on the legend that is Saul Alvarez at Madison Square Garden.

Rocky v Alvarez Odds*

Saul Alvarez 1/16 Rocky Fielding 8/1 * (betting odds taken from bet365 December 14th, 2018 at 2:52 pm) [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"]

Fielding the underdog

There is little doubt in the bookmakers’ minds about which way this fight is going to go. This is such a step up for Fielding in terms of quality. He is a massive underdog at MSG. Rocky got his hands on the WBA Super Middleweight Title though against the odds. He was the underdog in Germany when he took on the undefeated Tyron Zeuge but Fielding got the win through a knockout in the fifth round. That took his professional career record to 27-1. The only loss in his career happened against Callum Smith back in 2015, failing to get his hands on the WBC Silver and the then-vacant British Super Middleweight titles. But he has won six fights on the bounce since them and four of those six wins have been by a stoppage. Fifteen of his career wins have been via a knockout. It has already been a terrific year for British boxing if he could pull out a win in this one at 8/1 odds* (betting odds taken from bet365 December 14th, 2018 at 2:52 pm) it would be a spectacular cherry on the cake.

Canelo steps it up

Mexico’s Canelo was last seen causing a huge upset of his own. He took out his rival Gennady Golovkin in a majority decision. That was not a decision without controversy though as many had pegged GGG as having done enough to get the win. Pretty much just as it had been in their first meeting when they drew, and so the world waits to see if the two of them get back in the ring and square up again to settle that score. For this battle against Rocky, Alvarez is going up in weight. But the Mexican sensation has had no trouble switching divisions before. He has earned titles at Welterweight, Super Welterweight and middleweight. This will be his first ever fight at the Super Middleweight though. He really has nothing to fear, not with a huge 50-1-2 professional fighting career under his belt. If you look at it really, it’s not a fight Canelo needs. He will be looking at this as easy fodder in order to just get another belt. Alvarez is 1/4 to get the win by knockout* (betting odds taken from bet365 December 14th, 2018 at 2:52 pm)

Prediction

There is a clear gulf in class and experience between these two. This would be a monumental effort from Rocky to upset the odds here. Adding to the problem is that the fight is America and as British fighters now, it’s often hard to get points decisions to go in their favour over there. Rocky is 33/1 to get a points decision* (betting odds taken from bet365 December 14th, 2018 at 2:52 pm).  It’s unlikely that Rocky has the power to stop Canelo. It may all come down to just when Canelo will get the breakthrough and hurt the Englishman. So then the approach to the fight is whether or not Fielding just can stick in there and actually get to the end of the fight. That in and of itself would be seen as something of a win for him against one of the elite fighters in the world. Saul Alvarez by Decision or Technical Decision is a tempting 7/2 proposition* (betting odds taken from bet365 December 14th, 2018 at 2:52 pm).

Ireland v New Zealand Rugby winner odds & predictions

Rugby Betting
Ireland v New Zealand preview - 17th November 2018 - 7 pm kick off After the All Blacks pulled out a dramatic win over England last weekend at Twickenham, they will move on to face Ireland at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Saturday. Ireland, who are the reigning Six Nations champions will be looking for their first ever win at home against the mighty New Zealand. The Irish are 15/8 underdogs to pull off the triumph* (betting odds taken on November 15th,2 018 at 7:48 pm)

Ireland v New Zealand Odds*

New Zealand 4/9 Ireland 15/8 Draw 22/1 * (betting odds taken on November 15th,2 018 at 7:48 pm)

Irish looking for first home win

Ireland have had a very good 2018 with a W9 L1 record. They opened their autumn action out in Chicago with a win over Italy, a game which they won comfortably and then it was at home against Argentina last weekend. Ireland came out 28-17 winners in that one, moving them on to a four-match winning streak in their current form. Back in the summer, they came from behind to beat Australia 2-1 in their series Down Under, a huge coup for the Irish who are bang on top of their game again. The only loss that they suffered in the 2018 calendar year was in their opening test against the Wallabies in early June. In the last decade, Ireland has faced New Zealand a total of nine times and lost eight of them. In November 2016 they did take a famous win over the All Blacks out in Chicago, which leaves them never having won a home international against the Kiwis. After beating New Zealand in Chicago, they met a couple of weeks later at Lansdowne Road and lost 21-9 but were in the game until the final fifteen minutes of the fixture. Three of Ireland’s last four losses against New Zealand have been by a margin of no more than -12 points. The one exception was their horror result of a 60-0 drubbing by the All Blacks in Hamilton in the summer of June 2012. An Ireland +6 handicap is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 15th,2 018 at 7:48 pm).

The All Blacks

It is so rare that you will see the All Blacks fail to win a game. Even at times when they are looking down and out in a game, they have such an astonishing ability to haul themselves back from the brink to win games. Last weekend at Twickenham, England produced a top-drawer performance against them. The All Blacks had to come from 15-0 down in the game (15-10 at halftime) to pull out the win. That is what they can do. Even when they look beaten, they pull it out and they are come back kings of international rugby. The form of New Zealand this year is now W11 L1 the only defeat there in that sequence coming against South Africa during the Rugby Championship this year (which New Zealand won yet again). Of the eleven wins that New Zealand have collected this year, nine of them have been by a margin of at least 13 points. Six of the eleven wins that the Kiwis have produced have been by a margin of at least 22 points. In the anytime try scorer market eat shortest priced option is Rieko Ioane at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 15th,2 018 at 7:48 pm).

Prediction

The All Blacks have proven time and time again that they are just so hard to beat. They are ferocious in the scrum and they tore into England’s lineout last weekend. Lat weekends’ tussle at Twickenham was actually a wonderful flawed game, but things could be a little more controlled this weekend in Dublin. Still, even though rightly Ireland are there to be respected given their current standing, we have to back the New Zealand power to come through. Ireland +6 handicap fits.

Dortmund slashed for Bundesliga title after downing Bayern

Football Betting
Borussia Dortmund produced a huge result on the weekend as they took a 3-2 win over Bayern Munich in Der Klassiker in the Bundesliga. It was a thriller at the Westfalenstadion as the hosts had to come from behind twice in the game to get their rewards. Former Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski twice put the visitors ahead in the match. It hasn’t been plain sailing for reigning champions Bayern at all this season, but they still had managed to put together some fantastic away form in the German top flight and it was showing. But under Lucien Favre, Dortmund look something a bit special this season. They are an attacking powerhouse and they extended their unbeaten form in the German top flight this season with goals from Marco Reus and Paco Alcacer, which saw them claw their way back twice to claim a 3-2 victory. That win leaves them four points clear of Moenchengladbach at the top of the Bundesliga with Bayern trailing them by a massive seven points. Overall this season Die Schwarzgelben have posted a W8 D3 record from their eleven league games and they have averaged exactly three goals per game across the course of the season as well. Dortmund, who really have gotten their attacking flair back for the first time really since Jurgen Klopp left them for Liverpool, also have the joint second-best defensive record in the division as well. They are on the hunt for their first Bundesliga title since 2012. So that was a big win for them and bet365 had cut them down to 10/11 on Sunday after having closed the previous day at 5/2 to win the Bundesliga outright* (betting odds taken on November 11th, 2018 at 7:14 pm). That left them at the same price as Bayern who were in as short as 1/3 for yet another Bundesliga title before their defeat at the Westfalenstadion.

Hughie Fury v Kubrat Pulev Boxing Winner Odds & Predictions

Sports Betting
Hughie Fury v Kubrat Pulev Preview - October 21st, 2018 at 3.00 am Hughie Fury, the cousin of former heavyweight champion Tyson, is ranked number five by the IBF in the heavyweight division. You can’t have any fight in this division without a mention of Anthony Joshua and Fury believes that after he sees off Pulev on the weekend, he is going to be gunning next for Joshua.

Hughie Fury v Kubrat Pulev Odds*

Kubrat Pulev 4/6 Hughie Fury 11/10 Draw 25/1 * (betting odds taken from bet365 on October 18th, 2018 at 9:07 pm) [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"] [toc heading_levels="2"]

IBF eliminator

Why this is is because his fight with Kubrat Pulev on the weekend is an IBF eliminator which means that the winner will become the next mandatory challenger for Joshua’s IBF title. So this will be a big step forward for the 24-year-old who carries a 21-1 career record into this bout on the weekend. The fight is taking place out in Sofia, Bulgaria, the home city of Pulev. So Fury certainly won’t have the crowd on his side. Fury won the British heavyweight title against Sam Sexton back in May which in turn was after a failed attempt to win the WBO heavyweight title against Joseph Parker back in September last year.

Going The Distance

The defeat against New Zealand’s Parker is Fury’s only defeat during his career, the majority decision going against him. Eleven of Fury’s fights have been won by knockout so that probably indicates that a win for him is most likely going to come by a points decision and the fight going the distance. That has to be backed in Fury v Pulev betting at bet365. Pulev was scheduled to fight Anthony Joshua last year but pulled out eleven days before the contest because of an injury. The 37 year old is a former world title challenger as he went up against Wladimir Klitschko in 2014 and was knocked out in the fifth. He has won all five of his fights since then, including a success over Dereck Chisora in May 2016.

Experienced Cobra is no pushover

The Cobra holds a 25-1 career record and is quite accomplished and experienced, and is a former two-time European and IBF International Heavyweight Champion with thirteen of his victories coming by knockout. But then, Fury has called him out for not having fought anyone difficult other than Chisora and Klitschko. But you look at Fury's record and that's a bit of the pot calling the kettle black type of nonsense.

Preview

It wouldn't be a great surprise to see this thing go the distance. There is a vast age difference between the two of them, and Fury has a slight height advantage over his opponent. The extended experience of Pulev though may just have enough to see him win this one. After all, he was ready to stand toe to toe with Joshua on merit. Fury couldn't handle the grinding work against Joseph Parker and it may be the same way in Bulgaria on the weekend.

WTA Moscow Kremlin Cup Winner Odds & Predictions

Tennis Betting
WTA Moscow Preview - October 15th, 2018 Simona Halep returns to the Kremlin Cup and this is her first time at the tournament since winning the title in 2013. She goes as the 9/4 favourite* (betting odds taken on October 14th, 29018 at 8:33 pm) for this week’s action in Russia. However she has been a bit hampered recently with her back injury which threatened at one point to keep her out of the end of season WTA Finals. Reigning champion Julia Goerges is not back to defend her title. [toc heading_levels="2"]

WTA Moscow Odds*

Simona Halep 9/4 Karolina Pliskova 4/1 Sloane Stephens 9/2 Kiki Bertens 10/1 Anett Kontaveit 16/1 Anastasija Sevastova 20/1 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 20/1 Elise MErtens 20/1 Dari Satakina 22/1 Johanna Konta 22/1 Kristina Mladenovic 25/1 Mihaela Buzarnescu 25/1 Bar 28/1* (betting odds taken on October 14th, 29018 at 8:33 pm) [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"]

Halep Returns to Moscow

Back in 2013, Simona Halep was on a hot streak of form and she claimed the title in Moscow. Her form isn’t hot at the moment because she is trying to battle through a back issue that she has had, which has seen her suffer early exits in recent tournaments. That includes having to retire at the end of September in Beijing in her first round match. She gets a bye in this one and this year’s French Open winner may be worth a pass until we see her get back to full fitness and her form return.

Bertens needs a boost

Kiki Bertens is going to be showing up this week with the bit between her teeth. She goes as fourth seed and she needs to at least make the semi-finals in Moscow to shove either Karolina Pliskova or Elina Svitolina out of the eight that will be heading to Singapore for the WTA Finals. Bertens, this year’s Cincinnati champions is as short as 10/1 to make a winning run here* (betting odds taken on October 14th, 29018 at 8:33 pm). Pliskova is competing this week and she gets to the final four of the Kremlin Cup then she will guarantee herself a place at the end of season finals. So she has a big incentive to make a strong run as well this week and she goes as the second favourite behind Halep. Pliskova who won in Tokyo at the end of September slipped to a defeat in her first match out in Wuhan against Qiang Wang. Sloane Stephens booked herself a place at the WTA Finals for the first time, so she can relax this week a bit. She gets her spot at the finals on the back of Elina Svitolina not playing anywhere this week. She hasn't been in the great of form to be fair on this Asian swing of the season and with nothing at stake like Bertens and Pliskova, we feel it’s worth looking past her. Daria Kasatkina was the losing finalist here last year so will be enjoying some fairly fond memories of this tournament.

The Draw

Halep and Pliskova are the first and second seeds respectively for the tournament so they are on the opposite side of the draw and would only meet in the final. It is Kasatkina who is in Halep’s quarter and could be worth a flutter to cause an upset by winning that section. Kiki Bertens as fourth seed heads up the second quarter with 7th seed Elise Mertens (who opens against Jo Konta in a big first-round match). With question marks over Halep that could end up being a good draw for Bertens who needs that deep run. The third quarter has Anett Kontaveit opposing third seed Sloane Stephens. Then making up the fourth quarter is second seed Karolina Pliskova and fifth seed Anastasija Sevastova.

Predictions

We see the path ahead for Karolina Pliskova being a big factor at the Kremlin Cup and as she needs a good run to guarantee a place in the WTA Finals, we like the 4/1 odds on her* (betting odds taken on October 14th, 29018 at 8:33 pm). She would meet a Qualifier/Lucky Loser in the second round after her first round bye. From the top half, again because of the necessity of turning up on form, Kiki Bertens has to have appeal in the tournament.

Super League Grand Final Betting 2018 Winner Odds & Predictions

Rugby Betting
Super League Grand Final Preview - October 13th, 2018 at 6.00 pm The Super League XXIII season will be settled on the weekend at Old Trafford in one of the big highlights of Rugby League. It is Wigan v Warrington facing off for the spoils. This is a repeat of the Grand Final from two years ago when the Wigan Warriors edged the Wolves in a tight scrap. Wigan are the 4/7 odds-on favourites to take the win again* (betting odds taken on October 12th, 2018 at 6:24 pm).

Super League Grand Final Odds*

Wigan 4/7 Warrington 7/4 Draw 14/1 * (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on October 12th, 2018 at 6:24 pm)
[bbutton bookmaker="ladbrokes"]

Super League Regular Season

At the end of the regular season, the Wigan Warriors finished in second place behind winners St Helens. They posted a W16 D0 L7 record across the course of the season, finishing a big ten points behind the league leaders. Warrington finished three points back of the Warriors down in fourth place with a W14 D1 L8 record on the board.

Super 8’s

Following the seven extra matches played in the Super 8’s things didn’t change in the league standings. St Helens stayed top with Wigan in second and Warrington coming fourth behind Castleford. That set up the play offs as St Helens v Warrington and Wigan v Castleford. Warrington pulled off the big shock really in taking down St Helens, who had lost just four games all season. In the sixth round of the Super 8’s St Helens had hammered the Wolves 34-14 so an upset looked far from being on the cards. Tom Lineham scored a late try for the Wolves to complete the upset. Wigan progressed through from their play off tie against Castleford winning 14-0 at the DW Stadium.

2018 Super League Grand Final

Warrington are in their fourth Grand Final while Wigan Warriors in their 10th Grand Final. Wigan are the favourites and they created a bit of history in the Super 8’s, becoming the first team ever to will all seven of their games in that section. This is the last time the Super 8’s format is being used, so the record won’t be matched. It is worth looking at the differences in terms of scoring and defence between the two sides at the end of the season (not counting the play off matches). Warrington actually outscored Wigan 767 to 740, which was a turnaround as they trailed the Warriors by 42 points at the end of the regular season. The Warriors had a much better defensive record conceding 417 points to the 561 shipped by Warrington. Wigan finished with a points difference of +323 while the Wolves had a points difference of +206. The top try scorer for the Wolves was Tom Lineham with 18 and he is at 6/4 in the anytime try scorer market* (betting odds taken on October 12th, 2018 at 6:24 pm). The top scorer for the Warriors was Liam Marshall with 16. Tries for the season. Wigan’s Dominic Manfredi is the 7/4 favourite in the market* (betting odds taken on October 12th, 2018 at 6:24 pm).

This Season’s Meetings

Round 3 Warrington 16 Wigan 10 Round 15 Wigan 38 Warrington 10 Round 20 Wigan 13 Warrington 12 Super 8’s Wigan 26 Warrington 6

Third Grand Final Meeting

This is the third time that Wigan and Warrington have met in the Grand Final. Wigan won both of the previous meetings, in 2013 and in 2016. The Warriors took a big fourteen-point victory in the 2013 final over the Wolves, while it was just down to six in 2016.

Prediction

That was some performance that Warrington pulled out of their hat in the play offs to take down red-hot favourites St Helens. It may be hard for them to top that and the defence of the Warriors is so good. Wigan are on a nine-match winning streak and they have conceded just 92 points in that run of games. We see more misery coming the way of the Warrington Wolves on their big occasion, but we are expecting a tight duel nonetheless. Warrington are 11/10 at a +4 Handicap* (betting odds taken on October 12th, 2018 at 6:24 pm) as we can see them getting close but not quite having enough to totally break that Wigan defence.

Ramsey to Anfield gains momentum in betting markets

Next Manager Betting & Transfers
Arsenal star set for summer move? There has been a lot of speculation about the future of Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey. The Welshman’s contract talks with the club has fallen through and it looks for all the world that he will be leaving the Gunners in the summer when his contract is up. During the recent summer transfer window, there were links between Ramsey and AC Milan. They have been long admirers of the midfield ace and they are in at 10/3 to capture his signature in the summer* (betting odds taken on October 9th, 2018 at 4:20 pm). Whole other big names like Juventus, Manchester United and Chelsea have all been linked up with interest in the Welshman, it is Liverpool who are shorter than ever to get his services. Liverpool are now just 5/2, making them the favourites to get Ramsey in the summer* (betting odds taken on October 9th, 2018 at 4:20 pm). That is down from a price of 5/1 so it’s been a big move.

Aaron Ramsey Next Club

Liverpool – 5/2 AC Milan – 10/3 Juventus – 4/1 Manchester United – 9/2 Chelsea – 6/1 * (betting odds taken on October 9th, 2018 at 4:20 pm) [bbutton bookmaker="Ladbrokes"] Liverpool have just started to show signs of becoming a bit static and predictable this season, a far cry from their powerful, fluent attacking selves from last term. Their big three of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino haven’t been at the races and certainly, the arrival of Ramsey would give the Reds a tremendous boost in the middle of the park. Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “With Arsenal seemingly preparing for life without Ramsey, it now looks as though Liverpool will add another Gunner to their ranks at the next available opportunity.”

Tottenham v Cardiff Predictions & Betting Odds – 6th October 2018

Tottenham
Tottenham v Cardiff Betting Tips - Premier League, 6th October 3.00pm Spurs have managed to win their last two league games to steady what was a bit of a rocky ship. They are going into this weekend’s game as red-hot favourites for three more points as well as they play host to Cardiff. The Bluebirds have failed to record a single win so far this term and look to be finding life in the top flight pretty hard. Read our predictions for Tottenham v Cardiff.

Tottenham News and Form

Spurs have steadied their unsettled ship with back to back league wins out on the road against Brighton and Huddersfield. So that has taken them up to a W5 L2 record for the term, so things are looking a bit better for them. Spurs have collected at least two goals in all but one league game this season so goals haven’t been a problem. They should be pretty comfortable against the struggling Bluebirds you would imagine. A Tottenham 2-0 correct score looks a strong option at 7/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:03 pm). We are taking into consideration the midweek Champions League action that Spurs had. So we are just going for a nice easy, reasonable win for them in this one at Wembley. Spurs to win to nil is tremendous value at 21/20 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:03 pm). Harry Kane has scored three goals in his last two games and is the first goalscorer favourite. Spurs have so far only played the two home games this season and so there’s not much home form to go on. But they have averaged exactly two goals from the two home games that they have played. Their 2-0 win out at Huddersfield last weekend returned just their second clean sheet of the season.

Cardiff News and Form

The Bluebirds are struggling pretty badly at the moment. Even when they are scoring they are still not able to get points on the board. They are stuck on just two points from 0-0 draw against Newcastle and Huddersfield early in the season and now the Welsh club are on a four-match losing streak. In that sequence of four games, they have conceded a total of thirteen goals as well. They lost 2-1 at home against Burnley last weekend and there doesn't appear to be an immediate solution to their problems. Away from home they are D1 L2 and they suffered a big loss at Chelsea in their last away game. On their two trips to London this season in the top flight they have shipped a total of seven goals. Cardiff have produced just the one away goal this season. Looking at the goals which they have conceded ten of them have either been in the final fifteen minutes of the first half of the final fifteen minutes of the second half during games. So those are certainly the periods where they are most vulnerable. This could be another long afternoon for them and both teams not to score is at 4/5* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:03 pm).

Tottenham v Cardiff Head to Head

The last time that Spurs and Cardiff were together in league action was back in the 2013/14 season. Spurs won both game 1-0 that season. The Lilywhites are unbeaten in their last seven games against the Bluebirds in all competitions and they haven’t conceded a single goal in any of their last five against the Welsh Club.

Tottenham to win: It would be an upset to many if Spurs didn’t get three points out of this game. It should be fairly routine for them at Wembley we feel and for our Tottenham v Cardiff predictions we are going to go with Tottenham to win to nil.
