Some interesting bets today with the football season and Rio Olympics on the horizon.
It seems the Ross McCormack transfer saga could finally be coming to an end with Aston Villa agreeing a £12m fee with Fulham. McCormack bagged 21 Championship goals last season but is keen for a move away from Craven Cottage. Following a breakdown in talks between Fulham and Norwich, Aston Villa look set to get their man and one customer has placed £800 on McCormack to be a Villa player by the end of the window.
The second bet on the list comes from the Women’s Super League. Man City Women have been well-backed to beat Reading Women and the Oddschecker bet slip has seen a £700 bet on Man City. If you think Toni Duggan and co. will prove too good for Reading, then you can still get on at 3/10.
England take on Pakistan in the third Test at Edgbaston today and Wednesday’s third biggest bet of £600 has been placed on England to win the Test Match. They are currently 6/11 in-play. Catch the action live now on Sky Sports 2.
We’ve got a horse racing bet at 4, where 6/4 favourite Atalante has been backed with £450 to win the 15:00 at Bath. She has also been backed by Oddschecker tipster, Andy Holding. Not one to miss.
Now, it takes a braver man than myself to bet against Usain Bolt in the 100m but that’s exactly what we have at fifth spot. We’ve seen a bet of £300 on Justin Gatlin to win the 100m Gold medal at the Rio Olympics. You can get a best-price 2/1 on Gatlin, with Bolt the odds-on favourite. The old adage 'fortune favours the brave' springs to mind.
