Pay Day Yankee: Southampton Fans, Back Your Team To Beat Arsenal This Weekend

The very best gamblers don’t tip. That would only shorten their winning odds. Instead, here is a steer make your own mind up. Far more rewarding in every sense.

What odds would Southampton normally be to win at Arsenal? Certainly a working man’s price. Except this year the fixture is first v third. Yet Southampton are still 5-1 or better. Compelling for a two-horse race.

At 33-1 Portugal are also a huge price to win the World Cup. They scrapped in this week via a qualifier against Sweden on the back of a hat trick from Ronaldo. Can one player win a World Cup? Ronaldo isn’t quite a Maradona but he could carry Portugal to the semi finals. Then you’d be on the cusp of at least each way odds of 16 and a half to one.

Ronaldo is odds on to win the Ballon d’Or. Everything seems to be designed to ensure he wins. For example, the voting has been re-opened and votes can even change their minds during this window. But be that as it may would you take him over Messi? Maybe at evens but at 8-1 the latter?

Cricket’s own peacock, Kevin Pietersen, is 7-2 to be England’s top batsmen in the on-going Ashes series. By now he could be shorter, but most likely still attractive on the basis that his centuries are usually big hundreds.
