BEST BETS 2010… but first a funny video
Right, forget the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, here are some of the best tips for this year, and not from Alan (!)
What are the best bets in 2010? You need look no further than the world of sport this year. Plenty of good online casino reviews etc on Oggs main site, but let’s look at the sporting tips in certainly a busy year to come.
Let’s start with the World Cup football in South Africa this summer, Ladbrokes and other bookies have these odds 11/2 for England to heal 44 years of hurt and win. Sky Bet offer 150/1 on David Beckham clinching the trophy by hitting the winning penalty in a shoot-out. Whilst Brazil and Spain are joint favourites the best bet looks to be the current champions Italy at a very good 12-1 across the board.
At home in the UK, Chelsea were anti-post favourites to win the Premiership title and still available at 6/5 with Blue Square, 888sport.com, Sky Bet and Paddy Power. And the Golden Boot award? Well the preseason outsider at 50/1 Darren Bent is on scintillating form and now priced at 7/1.
Of course England’s cricketers are bouyed by their 2009 Ashes win and are 11/8 with Totesport to retain those Ashes in Australia at the end of 2010. Rugby Union’s Six Nations’ title is up for grabs with England at 5/1 but still only second favourite behind the impressive Irish.
Boxing was wild in in 2009. David Haye is 2/1 with William Hill to defend his WBA heavyweight crown by beating John Ruiz and then beating either of the Klitschko brothers all in 2010.
Golf is normally the best sport to bet on and the amazing news story involving Tiger Woods at the end of 2009 has seen him withdraw from playing, but the cracking bet of Totesport’s 5/2 shot that he is lured back to play in The Masters as his first golf competition in 2010 is one not to pass lightly.
USA is not doing well at Wimbledon in the Mens’ Championship and so the Brits have Andy Murray at 11/8 with Sky Bet, Totesport and Victor Chandler to win a major grand slam in 2010.
Now I love Formula One motor racing and the return of Michael Schumacher will certainly spice the races up, Sportingbet have him at at one time would have been an outrageously good price of 3/1 to win the drivers’ championship, but perhaps the best bet is with William Hill and that the champion will be British, a fair 5/4.
Now I can’t miss out horseracing, and my wasn’t 2009 probably the best year ever, one exceptional horse race after another. The magnificent Kauto Star is 6/4 to lift win the Cheltenham Gold Cup in the Spring and other festival tips are Big Bucks at 6/4 with most bookies to take the World Hurdle and Master Minded at 7/4 to win the Queen Mother Champion Chase.
I miss my local dog track that shut down, but will be keeping my eye on the fine Irish dog Tyrur Quinn to spring a surprise and race off with the Greyhound Derby, well at a cheeky 50/1 each-way price why not. I’d love Ireland to win something this year if they are not going to be represented at the football World Cup.
Well enjoy your year, bet safe and may the luck of the Irish be with you in 2010!
