IT’S men’s quarter-final day at Wimbledon and Andy Murray couldn’t have wished for an easier opponent.
The super Scot takes on No.56 Vasek Pospisil who is in his first Grand Slam quarter-final and has had to play three five-setters in the past week.
Murray has won all three of their previous meetings and should get this one done in straight sets, which pays 40-85 at Betfair.
Roger Federer has sailed to this stage without having dropped serve but faces his first real test from Gilles Simon. Both their previous Grand Slam clashes have gone the distance and over 3.5 sets today pays 11-10 at bet365.
Stan Wawrinka versus Richard Gasquet also looks good for overs at 1-2 with bet365 while Novak Djokovic could be troubled be Marin Cilic if the Croat turns it on.
On the cricket front the Ashes gets under way with the first Test in Cardiff. England have improved and ushered in a new era since the 5-0 whitewashing they suffered Down Under in 2013-14 but the Aussies are still a fearsome force and look a safe bet to win the series at 4-9 with Coral.
England are 9-2 at Skybet for series victory with the draw 15-2 at 888sport. For the opening Test the Aussies are 21-20 at Stan James, with England 10-3 at Paddy Power and the draw 13-5 at Betway.
There’s also stage five of the Tour de France today with Chris Froome looking to regain the yellow jersey from Tony Martin. Good luck with your bets and let’s hear your tips and chat.
