Waiting on a Hurricane

It is one of the busiest weeks of the year in sport and there is major action in a variety of sports. In the GAA there is NFL action this weekend. Roscommon 4/7, Fermanagh 7/4, draw 7/1. Cork 4/9, Down 9/4, draw 15/2. Mayo 4/9, Armagh 9/4, draw 8/1.

All Ireland club finals: Crossmaglen 8/15, St Brigids 2/1, draw 15/2. Clarinbridge 6/4, O’Loughlin Gaels 8/13, draw 10/1.

Next week the annual Cheltenham racing festival takes place. Champion Hurdle: Binocular 3/1, Menoah 9/2, Hurricane Fly 9/2, bar those 6/1. Queen Mother Chase: Master Minded 9/4, Big Zeb 3/1, bar those 7/1. Gold Cup: Imperial Commander 3/1, Kauto Star 5/1, Long Run 11/2, Denman 7/1, bar those 10/1.

In soccer FA Cup quarter final: Man United 10/11, Arsenal 3/1, draw 5/2. In golf the second world championship event of the year takes place in Florida. Martin Kaymer 9/1, Tiger Woods 10/1, Phil Mickleson, 14/1 Graeme McDowell 16/1, bar those 8/1.

In rugby the Six Nations handicap betting as follows: Italy + 16, France -16 evens; Wales -2 Ireland +2 evens; England -16, Scotland +16 evens.

Bet of the Week: Our punt on Man United last week well and truly bombed. This week we will have a tenner each way on Hurricane Fly to win the Champion Hurdle on Tuesday in Cheltenham we might even sneak 5/1 as the race comes up.
