SBB Weekend Accumulator
Following on from our fairly successful weekend football accumulators last season, we thought we’d continue on in a similar vein if we have a collection of fancied bets for the weekend and tomorrow we have three selections which we think are good enough value to warrant an accumulator with them.
Jaydubs: Australia to win by 1-12 points
(Rugby Union: Sat 11th July Australia v British Lions 11:00am)
Without Warburton and Tupiric on the bench the Lions have no real openside; against George Smith we will lose lots of ruck ball and will be turned over with penalties given. The selection of Hibbard is panic at its best, he is worse in the line out and that is an area where we have been struggling with less secure ball in there so we look set to struggle. A more defensive back row has been chosen despite a blatant need for more attacking, whilst we have had no plan for Will Genia and still don’t. O’Connell, O’Driscoll and Warburton are all out so when the going gets tough there appears to be no ready leaders. We have an exciting back 3 but bringing Roberts back, who is still only half fit and shouldn’t have been selected, means they will not get used as they should. I do think with it being the decider the first half is going to be very, very tight so Australia to win by 1-12 looks good value.
DarylRogerson: Al Kazeem
(Horse Racing: Sat 11th July 3:50pm Sandown Coral Eclipse)
James Doyle was the only jockey switched on enough to keep an eye on trailblazer Mukhadram last time in the Prince Of Wales Stakes at Royal Ascot, with the other jockeys watching Camelot intently Paul Hanagan stole a march on them before Al Kazeem managed to bear down on him in the final furlong to win. Mukhadram’s connections have already strongly hinted they intend to go for the line straight from the off again and I expect the field to be ridden much closer to the pace. I think this can only aid Al Kazeem who finished very strongly in both that race and when coming away from Camelot in Curragh’s Tattersalls Gold Cup. A promising talent who has finally got his act together and has won two Group 1’s in his last two races. Whilst Declaration Of War was an impressive winner of the Queen Anne Stakes there was nothing of the same calibre that Al Kazeem has beaten and I’m am very strong on his chances today.
Zipster: David Price by KO, TKO or Disqualification
(Boxing: Sat 11th July David Price v Tony Thompson)
David Price suffered a shock 2nd round defeat to Thompson back in February and this weekend see’s the re-match and for me it will be a re-match in which Price will be out to get his career back in track. Thompson caught Price with a cracker in that last fight but Price will be back more determined than ever and I just cannot see Price losing again, he should get the job done and done within the 12 rounds.
