It’s the weekend! Whether you’re planning on dusting off your golf clubs, taking the kids to the swimming pool or surfing the couch, get involved in this quintet of top bets.
The selections are all taken on their own merits, but if you fancy going large this would pay out at an obscene price of 433/1 in a multiple…
Football – Radamel Falcao to score anytime v Everton @ 4/5
Wayne Rooney’s suspension will ensure United’s Colombian is in the starting line-up and having failed to register in his first three appearances, while playing well, it seems inevitable he’ll bag against a leaky Everton back line at Old Trafford.
Formula One – Jenson Button for a points finish @ 1/3
McClaren’s improvement since the break has been notable and Button has been a consistent source of points lately as a result.
Although out of luck with a retirement in Singapore, the former world champion had registered five straight top 10s before then, while he was very encouragingly fourth fastest in the second practice at Suzuka.
Horse Racing – Cotai Glory to win the Prix de L’Abbaye @ 10/1
Picking a horse that has never previously won at a higher grade than Group 3 level to win a 5f Group 1 that involves Sole Power is a somewhat risky strategy, but Cotai Glory has looked every inch up to this rise in class in recent starts.
After winning the Molecamb Stakes, she was well in command of the Group 2 Flying Childers Stakes last time, until jockey George Baker’s saddle slipped in the dying strides and the two parted ways in the shadow of the post.
He has every capability of being the first two-year-old winner of the Prix de l’Abbaye since 1978.
Golf – Stephen Gallacher to win the Alfred Dunhill Links @ 8/1
At the time of writing Gallacher is two shots off the lead midway through his second round.
A previous champion of the event in his home country a decade ago, Gallacher has a point to prove after a disappointing showing on Ryder Cup debut, but has shown all season what a fine player he is.
NFL – Cincinatti Bengals to beat New England Patriots @ 20/23
The Bengals are one of just two unbeaten teams remaining in the league and visit the struggling Patriots allowing the fewest points-per-game in the NFL, at just 11.0.
Tom Brady’s side is experiencing a serious decline on the offensive side of the ball, with their future-Hall-of-Fame quarterback ranking 30th of 34 for passing-yards-per-contest.
While the Pats’ defence has largely earned the side their 2-2 record, they are still allowing 2.5 points more on average than they’re scoring, which is more than enough for the impressive Bengals to take advantage of.
