England v South Africa Women’s Cricket World Cup Semi Final

Cricket Betting
England are still on track to potential Cricket World Cup 2017 glory. They will show down against South Africa at the Brightside Ground in Bristol on Tuesday for a place in the semi final. These two, of course, met up in the round robin first stage of the competition and England Women had to bring their top batting game to the fixture. That was back in early July when England took a 68 run victory over South Africa. On that occasion, England’s Tammy Beaumont and wicketkeeper Sarah Taylor both posted solid centuries in the match to set England up. That was in the first innings and South Africa stayed behind the needed run rate all of the way in their chase, but they did get over 300 runs, recording 305 in response to England’s 373 total. England’s batting has just gotten better and better as the tournament has rolled on and they always seem to have someone come good in a match with the bat in hand. There's a lot of depth there. Beaumont has scored magnificently in the tournament and is a 3/1 punt at Coral to finish as England’s Top Batsman in the match, with Taylor as 5/2 favourite.

England v South Africa Women’s Cricket World Cup Semi Final odds

England Women 1/4, South Africa Women 3/1 After their surprise opening defeat, England have really stepped up to the plate and perhaps that spurred them on. They finished top of the table in the round robin phase, including a historic win over Australia, who are competition with India in the other semi final. No-one has been able to get close to England’s run rate in the tournament and that should carry them through pretty well in his one. South Africa are actually the ones who were the closest to England in the run-rate through the first stage. England are well up in the head to head against South Africa in one-day internationals have won 18 of their previous 19 against them. This is South Africa’s first semi final in the World Cup since 2000 and they do carry a bowling threat in captain Dane van Niekerk who has produced some stunning performances, including taking four wickets for no runs in their group win over the West Indies. England can expect the Proteas to come back hard at them because after all they have no pressure on them and have nothing to lose from the position as the underdog. Van Niekerk has to take some serious consideration to be the top bowler in the match, while from England’s perspective, Alex Hartley, Anya Shrubsole and Katherine Brunt, who have all contributed very well at the tournament, are all joint 7/2 favourites at Coral to be the England Top Bowler in the fixture. England's batting power should again get them the win. Follow live in-play cricket betting at Coral, who offer a Bet & Get Club for their customers.

Chelsea favourites to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund

Football Betting
Do Chelsea have £70 million to shell out on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang? Reports are that Borussia Dortmund are prepared to sell him off to the Premier League Champions but the Blues will have to pay a fair penny for him. This has come about because the player himself has allegedly told the club that he wants a move away from the Bundesliga giants. PSG were in the market for the Gabon international but they have since pulled out interest, so the player will be looking for another club. The Blues had launched off a matching deal to Manchester United’s successful offer to Everton for Romelu Lukaku, so after missing out there, they could be looking for alternative sources to provide the goals up front for them in a busier season than last, because of Champions League duties. There have been rumours that they are going for Alvaro Morata, but Aubameyang, who netted 31 goals in the German top flight last season is something that Chelsea fans would get excited about. That goal haul was from 32 games. With Dortmund apparently keen enough to let the 28 year old go for the right price, he looks as if Aubameyang will be departing. Chelsea could of course just keep their money in their pockets and make peace with Diego Costa who still seems to be sticking around with little market interest in him. But for now, the odds on Aubameyang going to Chelsea in the summer have fallen from 33/1 down to 7/2 with Coral. There is still a price of 7/4 on him going over to China something and AC Milan are potentially going to come into the market for him at a price of 11/4. But you would imagine that if Chelsea launches a serious bid for him, with the allure of Champions League football and going to the champions of England, they would probably get their man.

F1 Austrian Grand Prix 2017 Betting Odds & Preview

Sports Betting
Here it is then, the big return of F1 as the season heads to Austria and this will be the first race following that ugly driving from Sebastian Vettel in Azerbaijan where he deliberately rammed into Hamilton’s car. The best act of revenge that Hamilton can get over the German will be to go out and beat the German to the chequered flag at the Red Bull Ring in Austria on Sunday. It was a good day on Friday for Hamilton who was the fastest in the second practice session as he beat out Vettel. There is a bit of an atmosphere around obviously and while Hamilton has accepted Vettel’s forced apology, the British driver is rightly still annoyed that the Championship leader wasn’t penalised further than the 10 second penalty that he received during the race. Vettel still finished ahead of Hamilton in the race to extend his lead over Hamilton in the Drivers Championship to 14 points. So this is one that Hamilton will want to score big in to close that gap again. Hamilton goes as the favourite to do that and he is the reigning champion as well with his win on the board last season. The Mercedes team has won the last three editions of the Austrian Grand Prix since it was reinstated back in 2014. So they will be expecting to find some form here but Hamilton’s team mate Bottas seemed a little off the pace on Friday during practice, finishing behind Vettel. Hamilton would enjoy it even more if he could get Bottas between himself and Vettel as that would increase Hamilton’s chances of winning. He needs his team mate to step it up a little bit. Vettel has never won in Austria and he barely got a run last year as he had an accident on the 26th lap and retired after having started back in ninth on the grid. To be fair to Vettel, part of the reason why he hasn’t won the Austrian Grand Prix is that it wasn’t hosted when he was dominating in his Red Bull years. So Hamilton looked pretty comfortable and could be on his way to a maximum point weekend. He needs it. The Red Bulls, after impressing a little bit more in Azerbaijan, don’t quite appear to be on the pace in Austria to challenge enough for the win, but Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo were fourth and fifth quickest respectively on Friday and it may be worth pushing for one of them to squeeze off a podium finish and Verstappen is 7/4 at Coral to do that, with Ricciardo, winner in Azerbaijan at 3/1 to get the win.

Austrian Grand Prix Winner Odds

Lewis Hamilton 8/13, Sebastian Vettel 3/1, Valtteri Bottas 5/1, Max Verstappen 14/1, Daniel Ricciardo 25/1, Kimi Raikkonen 25/1

Austrian Grand Prix Pole Position Odds

Lewis Hamilton 2/5, Valtteri Bottas 7/2, Sebastian Vettel 9/2, Max Verstappen 20/1, Kimi Raikkonen 28/1, Daniel Ricciardo 33/1, bar 300/1

Austrian Grand Prix Prediction

This one looks ready made for Hamilton. He is the reigning champion and Vettel doesn’t have the track record here. Bottas's time on Friday wasn’t comparable because of not running full race simulation and Hamilton needs a big weekend from his buddy too to try and keep Vettel as lower down the order as possible. Hamilton for a pole and win double. Online betting site Coral offers a Bet & Get Club for their customers.

England v South Africa First Test Cricket Betting Odds & Preview – 6th July, 2017

Cricket Betting
It has been an action-packed summer of cricket on domestic soil, and while the Women’s World Cup is going on, England’s men will step back into action in the opening match of their Test series with South Africa. This will be a first for England under their new skipper Joe Root, who becomes the 80th man to captain the nation at the Test Level. After Alastair Cook stepped down from the role back in February after a record 59 Tests in charge, it is Root who fills the void now. This is the first of four Tests between the two nations and so far on the Tour, England took a 2-1 ODI series win over the Tourists, while they won the Twenty20 Series by the same scoreline. So they are in the ascendancy and with the Tourists surprisingly getting a little worse as their trip has gone on, particularly in the ICC Champions Trophy, then the home side are odds on at 4/7 at Coral to win the Test Series. July 6-10 1st Test, Lord's (11:00 BST) 14-18 2nd Test, Trent Bridge (11:00 BST) 27-31 3rd Test, The Oval (11:00 BST) August 4-8 4th Test, Old Trafford (11:00 BST) The Proteas are 3/1 to triumph in the series. So to the first test, which England are even money to win, which will be the first between the two since early 2016 in South Africa. England did edge that series with two wins a draw and a defeat on the road. The last time that the two of them squared off at Lord's was back in August 2012 with South Africa taking a win, which was part of their series victory over the English. South Africa have won their last two Test series in England. But England look the better of the two at the moment and they have brought back Gary Ballance, Toby Roland-Jones and spinner Liam Dawson into the squad. England’s key bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad are in the squad along with Mark Wood. Keaton Jennings and former captain Alastair Cook are the opening partnership for England. As for South Africa, they will be missing their captain Faf du Plessis who had to go home to attend what was described as being a difficult birth of his first child. The South Africans will also notably be missing pace bowler Dale Steyn and AB de Villiers is taking a break from the format. So England have a good chance of getting off to a strong positive start at home against the Proteas. In the Series Correct Score betting at Coral, an England 2-1 option is the shortest priced at 9/2 followed by a 3-0 home win coming in at 5/1 across the four match series. Online betting site Coral offers a Bet & Get Club for their customers along with top live in-play cricket betting.

Snooker World Cup 2017 Betting Previews & Predictions

Snooker Betting
Although this is just an invitational tournament, the Snooker World Cup represents a really exciting event for fans of the game. This contest features teams of two players who step out to represent their country at the game. This tournament, while low in featuring on the yearly snooker calendar, was actually originated all the way back in 1979. From 1996 though it took a long break until it was revived in 2011 and then there was a four year wait for the next edition. The gap has now been cut down to two. This year’s Snooker World Cup is hosted out at the Wuxi City Sports Park Stadium in China and it is China who has won the last two editions of the tournament so they are the ones to beat. Actually, China have two teams at the tournament. In 2015 it was their China B team of Zhou Yuelong and Yan Bingtao who took the title and in the edition before that, it was their China A team of Ding Junhui and Liang Wenbo who won it. Both Chinese teams are exactly the same for the Snooker World Cup 2017 edition. The tournament runs through to July 9th and you have four groups of six nations. That’s right, there is a total of twenty-four nations taking part and the winner walks away with $200,000 in their pocket, so it is a nice payday. In the group stage, each team in a round robin format, players the other in best-of-five frame matches (all five frames are played regardless). The matches consist of two single frames, a doubles frame and then two reverse singles. Then from that, the top two teams from each group go through to the knockout stages. In the knockout stages, you have the competition stepping up to the best of seven frames and so in the race to four frames, the format is two singles, a doubles frame, two reverse singles, another doubles frame, and a winner-take-all singles if necessary. So it is pretty exciting stuff to watch, especially watching some of the top players around the world getting some doubles action on, because that is something that you rarely, rarely see.

Snooker World Cup 2017 Odds

England 5/2, China A 4/1, Wales 11/2, Scotland 7/1, China B 15/2, Northern Ireland 11/1, Hong Kong 16/1, Thailand 16/1, Australia 33/1, Belgium 33/1, bar 40/1

Snooker World Cup Preview

So there are a total of 24 nations and breaking things down a bit, there are eight seeds, which means that two seeds go into a group and for your betting, those seeds will be the favourites to win through to the next round.

Overall Snooker World Cup Rankings (in order)

China B - Zhou Yuelong, Yan Bingtao) Scotland - (John Higgins, Anthony McGill) England - Judd Trump, Barry Hawkins) China A - (Ding Junhui, Liang Wenbo) Hong Kong - (Marco Fu, Au Chi-wai) Australia - (Neil Robertson, Kurt Dunham) Northern Ireland - (Mark Allen, Joe Swail) Wales - (Mark Williams, Ryan Day)

Group A

China B, Wales, Brazil, Malaysia, Norway, Finland Well, the Welsh duo should get out of this group easily enough and they did open with a comfortable win over Norway. China B got off to a flyer as well in crushing Finland as you would expect. This pretty much should just come down to a battle between the two who meet on July 6th, to see who wins the group. Wales are 11/13 at Coral to do that, with China A at 11/10.

Group B

China A, Hong Kong, Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Egypt You would expect the China team to be pretty strong though this one as well and they opened with a 5-0 demolition of Ireland. So it was easy pickings for them and it should be that way through the group stage. The Hong Kong duo are expected to raise a challenge though with Belgium being the pick of the dark horses. But still, they are a long shot to qualify out at 9/2 with their duo of Luca Brecel and Jeff Jacobs. China A are 6/11 favourite to top the group, with Hong Kong at 3/1.

Group C

England, Australia, Malta, Switzerland, Iran, Pakistan This would be a shocker if England didn’t get out of their group and to some extent, it would be a shock if they didn’t win it too. They easily beat Switzerland in their opening match, while Australia, who are second favourites to win the group, lost to Malta in their opener. So that has thrown the race for the second place open a bit with the Aussies at 13/2 so it may be worth a flutter at getting in on one of the underdogs, probably Malta, even though there’s enough time for the Aussies to bounce back. England are 1/10 odds on at Coral to win the group.

Group D

Scotland, Northern Ireland, Thailand, India, Cyprus, Israel Again, it is not a group where you would expect to see an upset, except there was one on the opening day with Thailand beating second seeds Scotland. So the Scots will have to respond to that and it leaves the door wide open for Northern Ireland to power though at 2/1 to go and win the group. Scotland are 11/13 to fight back and top the pile, with Thailand in the mix at 3/1. In the group stage, all teams play a match each day through to July 7th. Then you have all of the quarter finals being played on July 8th and then both semi finals and the final itself being contested on July 9th. So interesting stuff and since it’s inception, England are the most successful nation at the tournament, having won it four times before, most recently back in 1989 in the three-man team format when they beat the Rest of the World in the final. Ireland are the next most successful nation with three titles and then Wales, Canada and China have two each. Scotland are the other nation to have won it, with Stephen Hendry, John Higgins and Alan Mcmanus triumphing over Northern Ireland in the 2011 Final.

Snooker World Cup 2017 Predictions

You would have to be looking at the top of the betting market for this one to find a winner. The Chinese are going to be strong contenders on home soil, and given their track record, it’s hard to ignore them and the stronger of the two is their A side. But England looks well equipped to at least make a run at the title in this one. They are a very tempting 6/4 price at Coral To Reach The Final, while Northern Ireland looks handily placed out at 11/1 as an each way punt.

Tour de France 2017 King of the Mountains betting Odds & Preview

Sports Betting
The Polka Dot Jersey signals who is the best rider in the mountains in a given edition of the Tour de France. Broken down simply, this is a points award for the rider that picks up the most points for reaching the mountain summits first. So you have a rider getting to the summit of a mountain first and there is points haul there for them and this will be based on the difficulty of the climb as well. The harder the climb, the more points are on offer. Chris Froome notably won this one his way to winning the 2015 General Classification and it wasn’t something that he was aiming for particularly. This season things are a little different and a little more difficult to call because of the lack of summits. So with the lack of finishes at the top of a mountain in 2017 it throws the field a little wider open really, but Rafal Majka who won last year’s King of the Mountains classification is a good 11/2 punt at Coral because of his past success. He is just one of the best climbers in the sport and he would be a better General Classification punt if he could land equally consistent rides across the rest of the stages. But Thibaut Pinot is trading as the 10/3 outright favourite and he will be a big threat for this minor award after coming in from the Giro d’Italia. Also as a good outside shot in such a shorted Kings of the Mountains battle this year, Nairo Quintana, also off the back of the Giro effort, could have a decent say in the battle at a price of 33/1.

Tour de France 2017 King of the Mountains betting odds

Thibaut Pinot 10/3, Rafal Majka 11/2, Pierre Rolland 9/1, Thomas De Gendt 11/1, John Darwin Atapuma 20/1, Johan Esteban Chaves 28/1, Nairo Quintana 33/1, Richie Porte 33/1, Chris Froome 29/1, Alberto Contador 28/1, Fabio Aru 33/1, Romain Bardet 33/1, Jakob Fuglsang 33/1, bar 40/1 Online betting site Coral offers a Bet & Get Club for their customers.

Coral
So the Lions need to hit back with a victory in Wellington against the All Blacks on Saturday in the second test.

Taking on the All Blacks is never an easy challenge and this will be the biggest test of the Lions’ mettle so far on the Tour. This is a game which they can’t afford to lose.

While the Lions were disappointed with that first test result, they have the chance to swing back into some confidence. Coral are offering Double Winnings as the Hurricanes take on the touring Lions.
