Valterri Bottas to win the Austrian Grand Prix.

He is 3/1 In the best car. All things being equal his only rival is Hamilton and maybe one of the Ferraris.

Bottas has a solid record at this track and historically it's not the strongest track for Hamilton. Bottas is due a win, and I think thisnin the one.

Bottas 3/1 win. This may change post Qualifying ( this afternoon)

You can get 9/2 at ladbrokes for Bottas as race winner, it's the bet of the race if your going against Hamilton.

Bottas quali 4th, but now prompted to 3rd.

Merc race pace is usually better than Ferrari and Red Bull, BUT Austria is difficult to pass. All that considered, I still might double down on Bottas, now at 5/1. Fuck it. He's a half decent start and living up to race pace away from winning this.

Mercs had engine management issues. They couldn't run at full spec. Both drivers had to coast around to stop the engines overheating. Finishing 3rd, 14 seconds behind the winner in a car running at 80% shows how good their race pace usually is.

Lib Dems are 1/5 to win the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election, Greens arn't running and Plaid are telling their voters to vote for the Lib Dems. It's short odds but free money imo.

Some long shot as bets on TDF stage 6.

Vincenzo Nibali 50/1
Nairo Quintana 33/1

Worth a nibble

Hughie Fury rounds 6-10: 9/4

I think even the 50-year-old, shot version of Peter has a good chance of reaching the second half of the fight against Hughie.

Pacquiao vs Thurman Not to go the distance - 2/1

Cant see this fight going the distance, Thurman just looked like shit and his chin was non existent plus theres no drug testing Pac could look like a beast

Thurman keeps saying hes going for the KO and I believe him he cant box for 12 rounds without getting caught anymore he will start fast

This fight goes 2 ways, Thurman starts fast and catches Pac early and finishes him, goes 4-5 rounds and Pac starts getting closer and then eventually hurts Thurman and beats him up, Thurman cant outbox Pac for 12 rounds that Thurman is long gone

Whyte vs Rivas not to go the distance 5/4 these odds are crazy

Rivas is way more prime than Chisora was he will put the pressure on, one left hook from Whyte can end the fight and one over hand right from Rivas could rock Whyte, im not even saying its 100% but im 70% someone gets stopped

I fancy doing that and also putting the potential winnings on the Rivas KO, which would give me a free bet at the Rivas ko, which is 13/2 atm. Just looking around for a decent cover bet as I don't want to leave myself too exposed.

Back with a bang

Had a very very good night could have been a great night but 2 let me down

Put £100 on Price to win by tko ko won £250
Put £50 on Szpilka to get knocked down won £100
Put £40 on Chisora rounds 1-5 5/1 won £240
Put £50 on Pacman points 11/8 won £118.75

Then a beauty of a acca

Chisora
Price
Whyte
Pac

£20 at 8.071 wins £181.44

Now my 2 lost bets

Had £25 on

Price win ko
Chisora win ko
Whyte win ko

Offered £100 before Whyte ring walk should have cashed out but let it roll stupid decision.

Then had £25 on whyte win rounds 1-5 again stupid bet I said at the time wasnt confident.

£900 not bad

Also won £150 on England winning cricket world cup. Very pleased with that as just put free bets every week. Pure fluke but ill take it.

Lost heavy on the Rivas ko and fight not to go the distance, but england's women getting spanked it the netball and cricket has seen me break even. Bounced off the couch in the 9th though when Whyte was dropped, was nearly £1500 up for a brief moment there.

Fook m8 hard lines unlucky

Have to say never in a million years would I bet on netball. LOL fair play if u know about it

With Whyte unless I read his fights completely wrong he was out on his feet in the 9th badly hurt and just like AJ Parker fight u can read the distress and panic him in. His powers of recovery though hats off to him.

Sky say he wasnt hurt and in total control so what do I know.

Was wafching us commentary on pac vs Thurman lol. Thurman bet on himself rounds 1 2 and 7 and Roach backed Pacman lol
