It is a bumper weekend of sporting action with major events in horse racing, golf, Gaelic games, soccer and rugby.
In GAA it’s the All Ireland club football semi finals. Nemo Rangers 4/11, St Brigid’s 11/4, draw 8/1. Kilmacud Crokes 4/6, Crossmaglen 13/8, draw 7/1. In the national football league games this weekend: Dublin 5/6, Kerry 6/5, Draw 8/1. Galway 5/4, Mayo 4/5, draw 7/1.
In racing, the Racing Post Chase at Kempton will take centre stage. Finstral Beach 5/1, Nacarat 6/1, Quinz 7/1, Bar those 8/1. In soccer the main games in the Premier league this weekend: Wigan 6/1, Man United 1/2, draw 3/1. West Ham 3/1, Liverpool 1/1, draw 5/2. Man City 4/9, Fulham 13/2, draw 3/1. Tuesday 1st March Chelsea 6/5, Man United 2/1, draw 5/2
In golf the world match play championships are on this week and bet as follows: Tiger Woods 12/1, Paul Casey 14/1, Lee Westwood 16/1, Rory McIlroy 16/1, Martin Kaymer 16/1, Graeme McDowell 25/1.
In rugby this weekend’s Six Nations games bet as follows: Italy -10 points v Wales +10 points evens. England -4 points v France +4 points evens, Ireland +5 points v Scotland -5 points evens.
Bet of the Week: Last week out bet was €20 Euro on Dublin footballers to beat Cork at 6/5 which came up trumps. This weekend we are switching to golf and are going to back Graeme McDowell each way in the World matchplay. Its 1/4 the odds to be in the first four so €10 each way at 25/1 looks good to me!
