Brighton are 12/1 to win the 2012/13 Championship ahead of he final day of the Premier League season on Sunday with Champions elect Manchester City 1/8 to win their first title in 44 years; Bolton are likely to join the Seagulls in the Championship and need to win at Stoke City and the Trotters are 15/8 to take all three points at the Britannia.
Everton are desperate to finish above neighbours Liverpool and are 5/4 to beat Newcastle at Goodison but the bet of the weekend is Liverpool 23/20 at Swansea. The Reds will want to build on their 4-1 thrashing of Chelsea midweek and all Liverpudlians must be thinking what if given Andy Carroll continued to torment Chelsea at Anfield after his Wembley cameo.
Sunday is the only day of the PL season when all 20 teams kick off at the same time at 3pm; we have markets on highest scoring game and which team will score first, and make Manchester City our 13/2 favourite to calm the nerves at the Etihad, with Chelsea 8/1 and Spurs and United at 19/2; City are 2/1 to be the highest-scoring team on the final day and we have an enhanced acca of 9/2 for the final day good things Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs, City and United to all oblige.
We have a sensational offer at betvictor.com for the forthcoming Euro 2012 tournament: place a bet on the outright market and if holders and World Champions Spain retain their European crown in Kiev on July 1 we will refund losing bets up to £50. Thus if you fancy Germany, Holland or – don’t laugh – England we will refund your losing stake if Spain continue their recent monopoly of major tournaments. This offer is backdated and lasts until the first ball is kicked in Warsaw when the hosts Poland meet Greece on June 8.
Looking forward to the reappearance of St Leger third Sea Moon at a soggy Chester in the Ormonde Stakes on Friday; there are only five runners in the race but it is a quality renewal with Royal Ascot winner Brown Panther, owned by Manchester United’s Michael Owen, and the Derby fourth Memphis Tennessee in the small but select field. Pippy (Mrs Rooney’s nickname at school) was out of luck for Wayne and Coleen Rooney at Chester on Tuesday but I wouldn’t give up on him just yet as he looked all at sea on the soft ground.
Sea Moon if successful will go to the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot and I fully expect him to make up into a top class four-year-old. Harbinger took this race en route to King George glory back in 2010 and whilst Sea Moon must improve significantly to be mentioned in that exulted company he is taken to make a winning debut.
One of the big betting races of the weekend is the Swinton Hurdle from Haydock Park and, if given the nod by Nicky Henderson, I think All The Aces (3.40) must have a great chance given he has form on soft ground and looks well treated on bits of his novice form; he is currently a top price 25/1 but that wont last if he is a confirmed runner.
Apart from the Masters and the Open, the TPC is my favourite week of golf in the calendar with its signature hole, arguably, the most famous in golf. Tiger Woods was 20/1 before the 1st tee shot was hit on Thursday morning; how the mighty have fallen, with odds of 100/1 being quoted after his first round 74.
