Euro 2020 Qualifiers
We are mid-way through and international break, but with competitive international football being played it is not all doom and gloom. There are eight Euro 2020 qualifying games being played today as well as some friendlies. You can find my predictions for all Euro 2020 qualifying games (and Asian World cup qualifier games) from our international football blog. Here are my predictions for today’s matches.
14:00 – Georgia v Republic of Ireland away win 2.47 with Marathonbet
17:00 – Denmark v Switzerland draw 3.3 with bet365
17:00 – Faroe Islands v Romania away win 1.25 with bet365
17:00 – Bosnia-Herzegovina v Finland away win 3.86 with marathonbet
19:45 – Norway v Spain away win 1.53 with bet365

19:45 – Liechtenstein v Armenia away win 1.27 with Bethard
19:45 – Italy v Greece home win 1.2 with bet365
India to win the Test – 1/9 with bet365
The India team are in the middle of playing a test match against South Africa and the momentum (at the time of writing) is certainly with India. A fantastic first innings saw them declare on 601 with Kohli racking up a fantastic 254 not out.
Needless to say this has had a big impact on the odds, leaving the outright market heavily stacked in the favour of India.
We did have our eyes on the odds prior the Test match starting and gave out some picks when things were on a more even platform. You can read them from our India v South Africa 2nd Test Preview blog.
Warrington and Uszyk both to win 1.04 with William Hill
Two significant fights on at night, although one of them is technically Sunday morning, but should be worth staying up for, in my opinion.
22:00 Josh Warrington v Sofiane Takoucht
03:00 (Sun) Oleksandr Usyk v Chazz Witherspoon
Not much value in the odds here for these two fights with Warrington and Uzyk out and out favourites to win their bouts. Punters may very well have to delve in to the fringe markets to sniff out any type of value here.
Value bet double Warrington to win in under 7.5 rounds and Usyk to win in over 3.5 rounds 2.81/1 with Boylesports
Italian open – Round three
My pick – Justin Rose 5/1 with betfair
At the time of writing (Friday 11th October 12:45) Henson was topping the leaderboard at -9, with Rose sat snugly in second along with three others. Rose’s putting has been in fine form so far and with him being the far more experienced golfer, I expect him to play the more consistent golf in the later stages.
I don’t see Rose slipping behind from here and can only see him closing the gap. Therefore I also expect the odds to shorten as Rose improves his score and position.
