MLB : New York Yankees @ Boston Red Sox on Friday

April 29th, 2016

MLB Odds: Yankees, Red Sox Resume Ancient RivalryML Baseball picks

It’s one of the most ancient and enduring rivalries in US sports – the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox.

These two ballclubs have faced each other 2,137 times over the past 115 years, with the Yankees holding a 1,161-962 advantage heading into their latest series at Fenway Park. Game 1 of this three-game set takes place Friday night at 7:10 PM ET on the MLB Network.

This will be the first meeting of the 2016 regular season between the Yankees (8-12, –5.90 betting units) and the Red Sox (12-9, +1.84 units).

Masahiro Tanaka (3.14 FIP) is scheduled to take the mound for New York, while he might never be the same pitcher he was before he tore his elbow during his 2014 “rookie” campaign, but he’s played at a high level this year, leading the Yankees to three wins in four starts for a profit of 2.05 units.

Boston is expected to respond with Henry Owens, one of the top prospects in the system. Owens has been pressed into service because of injuries to the Red Sox rotation; in his 2016 debut, the 6-foot-6 southpaw gave up three runs over 3.1 innings in a 7-5 win over the Houston Astros (–105 at home).

Atletico Madrid Hosts Bayern Munich in Champions League Semifinal

April 26th, 2016

After eliminating their fierce Spanish rivals Barcelona in the quarterfinals, Atletico Madrid have another big task in the Champions League as they host German powerhouse Bayern Munich in the first leg of the semifinals on Wednesday.

Atletico has been on a roll since they edged Barcelona 3-2 over two legs in the quarterfinals, winning their last five games, including a 2-0 win over Barcelona in Game 2 of the quarter-finals at home. Antoine Griezmann scored twice in that game, sending Atletico to the semifinals for the second time in three years.

Bayern held on for a tough 3-2 aggregate win over Benfica, including a nail-biting 2-2 away draw in the second leg. Arturo Vidal scored in both legs and Thomas Muller added one in the second leg; Bayern has won three in a row since that game. They return to the semifinals – where they lost to Barcelona last season.

This is the third time that these two teams have met. They faced each other in two legs of the 1974 European Cup Final. The first leg resulted in a 1-1 draw, and Bayern scooped up a 4-0 win in the second leg.

Rugby – Autumn Internationals – Free Bets at Paddy Power

November 5th, 2010

At this time of the year, rugby fans are never quite sure what they can expect to watch at the weekend. Magners League, Aviva Premiership and Heineken Cup fixtures all come around regularly, but this weekend they all take a break for autumn international fixtures.

Rugby Union – England v New Zealand

England make just one change from the side that beat Australia in Sydney in June for the visit of Tri-Nations champions New Zealand. Even though they were beaten by the Wallabies with the final kick of the match last weekend I expect the All Blacks to win this one. Saying that, England with a 12 point start at 10/11 could offer some value.

Match Odds – Handicap Betting
England (+12.0) 10/11
Draw (+12.0) 25/1
New Zealand (-12.0) 10/11

Rugby Union – Ireland v South Africa

Jonathan Sexton again holds off the challenge of Ronan O’Gara for Ireland’s number 10 shirt as the Irish play South Africa. Ireland won this fixture 15-10 last November but the Springboks might just nick this one.

Match Odds – To Win Betting
Ireland 4/6
Draw 20/1
South Africa 6/5

Free Bet Options at Paddy Power

Sat. 2.30pm Sky Sports 1 – England v New Zealand
Sat. 5.30pm RTE2 & BBC2 – Ireland v South Africa

England are out of the World Cup – but you can still bet on them!

June 29th, 2010

With England’s latest World Cup failures heading home from another humiliating exit from the Beautiful Game’s top event, Paddy Power are betting on who amongst the manager and players are likely to be put out to pasture.

Who is going to jump from the England Set-up? :
————————————————–

First and foremost manager Fabio Capello future looks doomed with the odds at just 1/2 (1.50) that Capello has left the post by the time of England’s next match against Hungary on August 11th. Its 6/4 Capello survives.

In a likely clear out of an ageing squad Paddy Power is also taking bets on who will officially announce their retirement from international football before England’s next match against Hungary on August 11th.

35 year old David Beckham, never shy of an impeccably timed media announcement, is the shortest price to call it a day at 4/9 (1.44) followed by 39 year old keeper David James at 4/7. (1.63) Other big names being tipped to retire include Rio Ferdinand and John Terry at 6/1 with Steven Gerrard 10/1.

Finally – a summary of the winning results in the England World cup betting specials at Paddy Power :

Winning Pre-tournament England Bets At The World Cup :
—————————————————

5/2 England knocked out in the last 16
5/1 Germany to be the team who knocks out England
7/1 England to score none-five goals in the tournament
7/1 Rooney to score no goals at the World Cup
5/4 Gerrard to score one goal at the World Cup
11/8 Defoe to score one goal at the World Cup
20/1 “Bobby Moore” to be the England v Germany first Commentary Cliché used

Perhaps you’d rather forget about the football ?

Or if you’d rather put the football fiasco behind you altogether … anyone for tennis?
