Only three of oddschecker's staff remain as we reach Friday in the Betfair Exchange Free Bet Streak
Just three tipsters remain from the original nine in oddschecker’s last tipster standing competition using Betfair Exchange’s Free Bet Streak.
We’re now into day four into the streak and thanks to wins from Real Madrid andCheltenham Town yesterday evening there are still four bets on the table for today.
So, without any further waffling let’s hear from the oddschecker experts who remain giving us their tips for Friday’s sport.
Teague Calvin, Marketing Operations Manager - Slections: Lipizanner to win the 14:25 and Elarqam to win the 15:00
I am going to split my £10 of free bets into two £5 bets for Friday.
Ryan Moore is a man in form and looks to be on the winner in the Norfolk Stakes with his ride LIPIZANNER (currently 5.0). The colt made a solid debut on soft ground so is likely to handle the underfoot conditions. He has only finished half a length behind the leader on his two outings but will no doubt have improved for those runs under Aiden O''Brien, and last time out finished ahead of Battleground who won the Chesham impressively on Day 3.
Another jockey banging in the winners has been Jim Crowley with five already and I expect him to win the Hardwicke on board ELARQAM (current price 3.5). I'm not quite sure how the five-year-old didn't win at Haydock 11 days ago, another couple of lengths and he would no doubt have won so whilst the longer trip will worry most I think it could play to his advantage if he handles the more testing conditions. The horse he would've beat was none other than Lord North who made mincemeat of multiple Group 1 winner Japan on Wednesday.
Sam Farley, Content and Marketing Manager - Selection: Under 2.5 Goals in Slavia Mozyr v FC Smolevichi-STI
There are three things in life you can always rely on, death, taxes and low scoring Belarusian Premier League games. Belarus was flavour of the month when the former Soviet outpost bravely (stupidly?) took the decision to play on in the face of a global pandemic. I had the pleasure of watching these two teams on awful streams, and neither are much cop. Smolevichi haven’t even managed to score a goal per game this season, whilst Slavia have only managed 15 in their 13 games. Unders looks the smart play here.
Jake Gallagher, Head of Social and Content - Selection: Lay Tottenham v Man Utd
If you read my write up yesterday you’d know I bottled backing Stradivarius and moved the cash to African Dream because it was raining. What, on earth, was I thinking? I’ll be sticking to football today for my final Free Bet remaining.
Normally when punting on football I don’t look at good form, I concentrate on poor form and target the teams on bad runs. With that in front of mind, I implore you to lay Tottenham against Man Utd. Despite being boosted by the news yesterday that Harry Kane is ‘fit’, be mindful that Kane usually takes three or four matches to get to full fitness on any normal pre-season and this situation is far from a normal pre-season. Couple that with the form Spurs were on pre-lockdown and just how badly they’re playing under Jose Mourinho I think Man Utd will be too much for them. Bruno Fernandes is likely to be the key man, as he has been since his January switch to Old Trafford.
