The shortlist of nine finalists has been drawn for the RTÉ Sports Personality of the Year and it comes as no surprise to me to see Paddy Power install Graeme McDowell as 1/2 favourite. Horse-racing’s most admired personality Tony McCoy is priced up at 5/2 to claim yet another victory.
Week 14 of any NFL regular season is usually wake-up time! With just four rounds of matches left before the postseason begins, football teams are looking to perform beyond their ability to clinch their division, or at worst, manoeuvre themselves into contention for a play-off spot.
The SAP Arena in Mannheim, Germany takes centre stage once again this weekend as boxing’s heavyweight champion of the world, Wladimir Klitschko (1/12), defends his IBO/IBF & WBO titles against the unbeaten Dereck Chisora (6/1).
Chisora, who hails from Finchley, London, has had 14 professional bouts to date and with nine knockouts on his record the British boxer has every chance of claiming a world title but can he really upset the current champion?
World Championship Boxing takes centre stage on Sky Box Office next weekend when the pound-for-pound king, Manny Pacquiao, takes on Mexican figher Antonio Margarito for the vacant WBC Super Welterweight Title. Also in action is England’s David Haye, who defends his WBA World Heavyweight Title against fellow country Audley Harrison.
American Football continues this weekend as Week 9 of the NFL regular season sees the Philadelphia Eagles (8/13) host the Indianapolis Colts (27/20) at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. Also in action are the current Superbowl Champions New Orleans Saints (1/3) who make a road trip to take on the out-of-form Carolina Panthers (12/5).
NFL Week 8 is fast approaching and there is some mouth-watering clashes taking place this weekend, none more so than the Pittsburgh Steelers (10/11) road trip to face the reigning Super Bowl champions New Orleans Saints (10/11). London is also in the spotlight on Sunday as it hosts it’s fourth NFL regular-season game. Last week’s American Football tips resulted in a 15.5pt profit, so let’s concentrate on the betting for this week’s games and hopefully select some winning NFL betting tips.
American Football continues this Sunday as Week 7 of the NFL pitches two of the worst teams of the regular season against each other. Both the San Francisco 49ers and Carolina Panthers couldn’t have envisaged such a dreadful start to their NFL campaign but much to their relief, the 49ers managed their first win of the regular season against the Oakland Raiders last weekend.
The NFL regular season continues this weekend and there’s a number of teams in action with seemingly straight-forward tasks.
The Pittsburgh Steelers, 1/9, will make light work of the Cleveland Browns while the New York Giants, 2/11, should easily account for the Detroit Lions. Elsewhere the San Diego Chargers, 2/9, will win on the road at the St. Louis Rams and don’t bet against Chicago Bears 1/3 being upstaged at home by the Seattle Seahawks. The Buffalo Bills, Cincinnati Bengals, Arizona Cardinals and the Carolina Panthers all have a bye week.
Last week’s NFL betting tips resulted in a small loss of 1pt. From 7pts staked, that’s actually not too bad considering how difficult the opening weeks of the NFL regular season have been to predict.
Yet again there is some really interesting match-ups taking place this weekend, none more so than the clash between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Buffalo Bills, who are winless so far this campaign. It should be noted that Miami, New England, Pittsburgh & Seattle all have a bye week.
The new National Football League (NFL) season got underway recently, with all 32 teams optimistic of contesting Super Bowl XLV at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington next February.

When you have backed a golfer at 16/1 to win a tournament, seeing them at the top of the leaderboard with four holes to play is a great feeling. That’s how I felt on Sunday as Martin Kaymer negotiated the back nine in Versailles…until double bogeys on the 15th and 18th hoes meant he finished T6 – not even good enough for an each way profit.
Still, I correctly identified three of the World Cup semi-finalists for an 8 point profit. Not bad!
