After a short break the betting diary is back, sometimes when stuff isn’t going your way you’ve just got to take a step back. Rather than go for a football treble this weekend there are a few things that look enticing so I’m taking a slightly different approach.
Carl Frampton to beat Scott Quigg on points
This is being billed as the very definition of a 50-50 fight by some pundits out there and maybe it is, but for me I think Frampton is the classier of the two and he may just shade it. Frampton by decision or technical decision is a top price 15/8, or for the braver a split decision win in the Irishman’s favour is 9/1 with Ladbrokes and may be worth a cheeky dabble.
Stuttgart to beat Hannover to nil
Hannover just can’t score at the moment and have managed just one goal in their last five games, and none in their last four. Stuttgart are in decent form and although they’re not clean-sheet specialists they might just keep one and take all three points tomorrow at 15/8.
Ireland to beat England
Ireland look hugely overpriced at 7/2 in this one, granted they’ve not won in the Six Nations yet but they’ve not played particularly badly either. England have won two but this will be the real test, as Scotland and Italy have been their previous opponents. If you want to keep it safe 11/10 with a +8 handicap is a gift but I’m prepared to take the risk.
As a treble that pays out at just over 34/1 using all the top prices. Paddy Power stands out for this particular bet as they offer the best odds on both Ireland and Stuttgart, with a Frampton points win 7/4. As always I’ll be backing this as singles and the multiple for the purposes of this diary even though I’ve not bothered to work out just how down I am in a while.
I’ve used Oddschecker for the best prices but I am not affiliated with them or any bookmakers in anyway.
