Busy Day of Betting Opportunities
Today the 26th of February may seem like just another day, however there are a whole host of betting opportunities available and as such if there is one day this week when you should be considering having a bet then today has to be the day!
Should you be looking to have a punt on the horses then both Lingfield and Leicester racecourses in the UK have interesting fields, however all eyes will be on Refusal who is running in the 5 o’clock race at Leicester, whilst this is the last race on their card this horse is certainly one to consider having a wager on and many punters will be hoping she can romp home and is one of the best napped horses at the meeting.
Another horse which could be worth placing a speculative wager on is running in the 2.10 race at Lingfield and this is Flying Tempo, whilst the race is an apprentice handicap this horse does tick a lot of boxes and could be worth a double with the above named horse, however get in early as the odds are likely to reduce as the betting public latch onto the chances of this horse!
Soccer fans will be looking at two of the major teams in Spain this evening at 7pm as Barcelona and Real Madrid go head to head. There is currently a point difference of sixteen between these two teams, however when it comes to the unexpected these two teams certainly both know how to deliver the goods and it is anyone’s guess who will come out on top.
However the bookmakers and sports betting sites are all in agreement and as such they have made Barcelona the favourites, and you will find that they are generally on offer at 8/11 to win the match, however it may be worth placing a small saver wager on the draw which currently the best odds available are 3 to 1, and for everyone who is expecting Real Madrid to come up trumps then 10/3 are the odds for them to walk away with the points.
The FA Cup fifth round stage will see Everton at home to Oldham this evening and with Everton in the form of their lives the bookmakers are not taking any chances and have made them rock solid favourites at 1/7, the draw is available at a healthy 7 to 1 whilst only the diehard Oldham fan would consider placing a wager at 14 to 1 for the northern town to take the game and progress through to the next stage.
