Premier League 2012/13

After more than 40 years without a Premier League title to their name, Manchester City finally have bragging rights in the city of Manchester and the question is now whether they can go on and dominate the English game for years to come.

After the jubilation of winning the Premier League in the dying seconds of the season, all eyes will be on Manchester City to see if they are able to retain their title.

American David Duval was victorious the last time The Open Championship was hosted at Royal Lytham & St Annes, and one thing we can say with some confidence is that we won’t have the same winner this time around. The American can be backed at around 750/1 if you really do fancy a nostalgic punt, though we would suggest saving your £1 and investing in a lottery ticket instead.

The most prestigious of all the Majors gets underway on Thursday and the bookies anticipate that over £200m will be wagered on the event worldwide, with over half of those stakes being struck with [Read full article »]

Haye as big as 5/4 to see off Chisora inside 10 rounds

West Ham Utd’s Upton Park will play host to one of British Boxing’s most controversial fights yet when David Haye and Dereck Chisora do battle on Saturday night.

So without replaying the history of how this fight came about, and whether you agree with it or not, our resident boxing expert @Smido11 talks you through the boxing side of things…

David Haye comes into this bout as short-priced favourite (2/7Totesport) and he & his manager/trainer Adam Booth are possibly the most calculated and selfish minds in boxing today.

Guardiola 10/1 to replace Mancini | Next Man City Manager Odds

With the emerging rumours that Roberto Mancini is set to become the Russian national team manager on a 6 year deal worth over €43m, Twitter is rife with speculation surrounding who will replace him in the Etihad hotseat.

With just over a month until the season gets underway, owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyanwill be keen to appoint someone soon and out of work Pep Guardiola looks a decent price at around 10/1, with Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho the early 4/1 favourite.

There are a number of managers with Premier League experience in the running, including Ancelotti (14/1), Hiddink (14/1), Benitez (16/1) and Moyes (25/1) all of which are likely to be popular with punters. [Read full article »]
