Blog from Roy The Boy with Harry Kane to win Sports Personality of the year recommended as a solid bet
Where’s the tricast options at PP gone?
Tried placing a tricast on a horse race at Paddy Power’s website recently? Don’t bother yourself. You will only be offered a fixed price about a very limited number of tricast outcomes.
The Power online business really has gone down the tubes since introducing its new software and the entire shebang is clearly aimed at the very casual punter with the IQ of a sponge. The possibility of the London Stock Exchange listed company incurring a major loss to small stakes through its website has all but been eradicated.
Race planning masterclass?
I’m more than a little off the pace when it comes to Irish greyhound racing but scheduling a valuable 550 yard competition at Shelbourne Park – featuring Droopys Biker the current Derby favourite – at the same time as the Laurels looks a masterpiece of race planning doesn’t it?
The story of the week had to be the 73-year-old coach driver who sponsored the 'David Chillery Happy Days Celebrating His Divorce' at Newton Abbot. I’ll not bore you with the details as they are self-explanatory but you gotta love this guy.
The Odd thing about Sir Harry
England was euphoric after the country’s club trounced Panama by six goals to one. Oddschecker wasted little time on cashing-in on associated publicity by announcing ‘bookmakers’ were offering 11/1 about Harry Kane earning a knighthood before the year 2020. Suffice to say the ‘bookmakers’ were not named. One would guess their sources were Skybet who don’t take bets, only pinch headlines.
Finding a price on the England captain to win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year accolade is much easier, he’s top-priced 7/4 with Unibet. Given Anthony Joshua is as short as 2/1, this looks an amazing price. You must not forget the boxer was massive odds-on for victory in the SPOTY race last year when he failed to finish in the top-three.
Crazy from the heat
Paddy Power’s excellent website (see above) shows 10/1 is available about the UK highest recorded temperature being breached. 38.5 degree centigrade is the mark to beat, it was set on August 10th 2003.
Given we are in June and temperatures have exceeded 30 degrees already this summer, it looks a fair bet. Of course weather does not work like that and every year people back a ‘white Christmas’ at 3/1 after there has been some snow at the start of December. By Christmas day the temperatures are pushing the teens countrywide.
Anyway, last year the record UK temperature was set in June. That was 34.5 degrees centigrade recorded at Heathrow Airport.
