The Cesarewitch Handicap, tonight's World Cup qualifiers and Rugby's Pro12 all feature this Thursday!
It’s been another hectic week in the life of the Oddschecker bet slip and today’s biggest bet comes from across the Severn Bridge where the Scarlets face the Dragons in the Pro12 on Saturday. The Scarlets will be looking for their third straight win, whilst the Dragons will be hoping to avoid a fourth defeat on the spin. One punter has £800 on the Scarlets to deliver the goods at best-price 1/6.
At number two we’ve seen a £700 bet on St Michel in Saturday’s Cesarewitch Handicap at Newmarket. The 3-year-old is currently the ante-post favourite at best-price 6/1 and is heavily fancied to go well here.
Republic of Ireland host Georgia tonight in their second World Cup qualifier in a game they really ought to win. The Georgians are ranked 137th in the world behind the likes of Madagascar, Tanzania and Sudan, so a price of 1/2 for the home side looks incredibly generous. Clearly we are not alone in our thinking as we’ve seen a £400 bet on Ireland/Ireland in the Half Time/Full Time market at best-price 6/5. The game is live on Sky Sports 2.
Back to the horse racing we go and in particular to Hereford for today’s 14:00 meet. 5-year-old Rather Be is the best-price 8/15 favourite to win the race and one customer has placed £300 on him to win here. His price has shortened from 11/10 this morning.
Our fifth biggest bet of the day is in tonight’s game between Austria and Wales. The Austrians go into the game as favourites despite a poor Euro 2016 campaign and an unconvincing 2-1 win over Georgia in their first World Cup qualifier. The biggest bet we’ve seen on the game so far is a £250 stake backing the draw at best-price 9/4.
