Three Rules…for betting on the Commonwealth Games
This entry was posted on Thursday, July 24th, 2014
a) Don’t be a homosexual
No literally, don’t be. And whilst the Opening Ceremony appeared to be an attempt to out-camp Julian Clary, the facts make for depressing reading, with 53 of the 71 competing nations outlawing homosexuality in their legislature. So EuroSport it aint. But there is punting oh yes, straight or otherwise, so here are three tips to ensure your wallet bulges. Just not in that way.
b) Big Names can’t always be bothered
As typified by Usain Bolt finding ten seconds work that little bit too stressful, and thus settling for just one cheeky 100m blast in the relay. Elsewhere, Jessica Ennis decided labour would be a more attractive option than competing, whilst Mark Cavendish decided to hurl himself onto pavement than wear the Isle of Man vest. In other words, even those who are there might not put their all into it, so laying Bradley Wiggins against home favourite and defending Champion David Millar in the Road Time Trial may be a good idea.
c) Australia are looking ominous again
Spanking us in the cricket, decent in the pool at London 2012, Australia have decided to return to the top table of global sport. So punt them here to clean up even when they aren’t favourites, for example in 7s Rugby where they are available at 13s in places. They are also 3.25 in both men’s and women’s bowls. Get right on that one too as a lovely double.
