Josh Warrington v Carl Frampton Preview

Josh Warrington v Carl Frampton – 22nd December – 22:00 BST Josh Warrington is fighting Carl Frampton for the Featherweight championship of the world this Saturday night. If the previous sentence had been written two years ago, it would have been a fight that would be scoffed at, as world champion Carl Frampton would have been a very heavy favourite, only available at prohibitive odds in the betting markets. However, as it stands today, Warrington is at the top of the tree and holds a strap, and it is Frampton who enters the bout as the challenger. The Irishman Frampton still starts as a betting favourite for the fight, but his chances are set at about 67%, when in reality a few years...

Whyte v Chisora 2: Repeat or Revenge

Dillian Whyte vs Dereck Chisora II – 22nd December – 22:00 BST This Saturday, 22nd December, boxing fans are spoilt for choice with the action available at the end of their fingertips. However, while in years gone by, the casual and diehard alike would have been clamouring for more live action on the TV, it appears counter productive to have two pay-per view shows on the same night. The second fight between Dillian Whyte v Dereck Chisora battles it out for views with a mouth-watering domestic match up on BT Sport between Josh Warrington and Carl Frampton. Some will buy both events, but not many and so it appears more than rational to suggest that both events would have made more money...

Guardian Tells Partial Story re Threatened Lawsuits vs William Hill and Paddy Power

The definition of something sad: A “news” story that intentionally omits as much relevant information as it claims to reveal. An example of interest to sports bettors occurred this week, courtesy of that venerable Brit outfit The Guardian, in a feature about London legal firm Mackrell Turner Garrett preparing “compensation claims” against prominent UK-facing sportsbooks William Hill and Paddy Power Betfair. The threatened claims pertain to an unnamed problem gambler who embezzled about £1.5m from several victims, then lost that money gambling at William Hill and Paddy. One might think, “Ho hum, we’ve seen a bunch of these stories already,” but something...

Smith to Become the King of Ally Pally!

You know Christmas is upon us when, with Elton John, Paul McCartney and The Pogues filling the airwaves, ‘Alexandra Palace’ and the ‘PDC World Championship’ are mentioned in the same breath. It signals the start of what is commonly acknowledged to be the biggest party in town. This year the event sees 96 players taking part – as opposed to the usual 72 – with the world’s darting elite battling to lay hands on the prestigious Sid Waddell Trophy in a tournament that straddles Christmas and the New Year. The extra 24 qualifiers mean this year there are an extra six sessions to be accommodated at Ally Pally, and included in those 24, for the first time ever, are two female competitors...

2018 Mosconi Cup Preview and Betting Tips

It’s Europe versus America time again as the Mosconi Cup Nine-Ball Pool spectacular returns to the Alexandra Palace in London. 12 months on from an 11-4 triumph in Las Vegas, Europe now seem a class above their American rivals and a victory this year would be an incredible nine wins in a row. The Mosconi Cup remains one of the most unique events of the sporting calendar. Expect a loud and boisterous atmosphere, far removed from the normal for snooker or pool. Lots of crowd involvement and plenty of niggle between the teams. The Mosconi Cup isn’t quiet handshakes and jolly well played. Winners celebrate. Losers skulk off. I first got hooked when Steve Davis beat Earl Strickland in...

Fury to Take Wilder the Distance… and Win!

WBC Championship Fight – 1st December – 9:00PM ET After a three-year absence, Tyson Fury arrives back in the big time in his LA showdown with the fearsome Deontay Wilder. His route there has been torturous and after much-fabled break from action in the ring, now is the time for Fury to finally deliver with actions rather than words. After two low-key and uninspiring warm-up fights, Fury was arguably offered the fight with Wilder long before he was ready for it, but such is his character, once that carrot was dangled there was no way on Earth he was going to turn down the opportunity. The bookies have the current WDC champion as odds-on favourite but in a two-horse race, for Wilder to...
