IT’S World Cup quarter-final weekend and William Hill are offering 13-8 that all four favourites – South Africa, New Zealand, Ireland and Australia – make it through.

There is a risk injuries could catch up with Ireland and Wales and it’s 11-4 that no northern hemisphere sides reach the semis.

In the first match today Wales look big at 3-1 with Stan James against a South Africa side priced up at 6-17 by Marathonbet.

And defending champs New Zealand are 1-5 at Betfred and Totesport to progress at the expense of France, 6-1 outsiders at StanJames.

At the Shanghai Masters tennis it’s semi-final action this morning. Stan Wawrinka barely tried a leg in his meek quarter-final surrender to Rafa Nadal who should be too strong at 9-20 with Sportingbet to get past Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Andy Murray was dazzling in his demolition of Tomas Berdych and now finds himself 7-2 underdog at Marathonbet in his clash with Novak Djokovic.

Murray won their last meeting in August – ending an eight-match losing streak to the world No.1. The Scot is in fine form this week and although Djokovic hasn’t dropped a set since the US Open Final I like the evens at Paddy Power and Ladbrokes for Murray to win a set.

There’s also plenty of boxing among the Saturday sporting highlights so post all your tips and chat here and good luck with your bets.

    Just over 16 hours till this game, anyone who watches the Nfl tune in to espn for this game,
    College football is better to watch than most Nfl games and they dont get much bigger than this one

    1 day, 16 hrs ago

    Saturday College Football

    Michigan State at Michigan 8:30pm

    Michigan State are unbeaten 6-0 while Michigan are 5-1 after losing the first game

    Michigan State have also beaten Michigan 6 out of the last 7 times & 5 of those wins were by 14+ points,
    So it’s simple this one, Michigan State have the stats to win so they must right?

    No, because although Michigan State are 6-0 they are not playing well, whereas Michigan after losing the first game have only conceded 14 points in their next 5 games
    Their last 3 games they have not conceded a single point.
    Also Michigan have only conceded an average 150 yards per game over the last 5 games

    Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook is terrible under pressure and needs time on the ball and Michigan should take advantage of this.

    Michigan State (MSU) have some serious injury problems but are confident of having Kodi Kieler, Jack Conklin and Jack Allen back which will be a massive boost but maybe not enough.

    Michigan like to start fast and rack up some points then ease off late on but they can step it up again.

    Probably the best matchup on the field & one I want to see is MSU Wide Receiver Aaron Burbridge against Michigan Cornerback Jourdan Lewis who has been excellent this season

    I have already tipped Michigan -6.5 points 10/11 Ladbrokes
    but that has gone now & Michigan are now 8 point favourite

    A second tip I like is
    Michigan to score over 24 points 10/11 Ladbrokes

    Sunday Fourfold

    Cincinnati Bengals +3.5
    Minnesota Vikings ML
    New England Patriots -2.5
    Green Bay Packers -2.5

    2.17/1 @ 365 – 2.15 points

    Sunday Fourfold

    Patriots -6
    Packers -6

    9/2 @ 365 – 1 point

    Injury update. Still no decisions made on a host of skill players for Buffalo. QB Tyrod Taylor is till questionable. He wants to play but Rex Ryan has said ‘we’ll see’. RB LeSean McCoy is probable but has had a while out with a hamstring injury. Receivers Percy Harvin and Sammy Watkins both questionable with Watkins coming out saying he’s unhappy with his targets so far (it would help if you were on the field, Sammy). Backup RB Karlos Williams is out with a concussion who had been fairly productive in place of McCoy.

    The Bengals only had two players questionable for Sunday and have both been upgraded to probable in DB Adam Jones and WR Marvin Jones.

    Green Bay as usual had question marks on their receivers but I still think it was down to them being thin in that area, Randall Cobb and James Jones both probable now, with Davante Adams questionable, which has been his best status in the last 3 or so weeks. Morgan Burnett still questionable at the Strong Safety position but hasn’t played since the home game vs Seattle and Hyde has done fairly well in his place. The biggest loss could be our nose tackle with BJ Raji doubtful with a groin injury. That could hurt our run defence a fair bit which Raji has contributed very well all season. TJ Lang was pulled from the Rams game on Sunday but is good to go, so that’s our strongest offensive line playing for only the second time this season.

    The Patriots have a few injuries which might be big losses in RB Dion Lewis who has given problems to almost every team he’s come up against. DB Tarell Brown is out which will be big with the Colts offensive players at hand. LB Dont’a Hightower also questionable with a rib injury after coming out of Sundays game but practiced yesterday.

    Nadal lost first set and second set he won 6-0
    is he back to form?

  13. Jordan 1 year ago

    That’s for the Green Bay Packers.

  14. Attila 1 year ago

    Can see this last set going to a tie break. Not sure why Nadal can’t finish him off…

    Tsonga breaks.. its over for nadal tsonga serving for game 5-6 final set

  16. Attila 1 year ago

    Christ – Nadal lost me a ton. Put him as final leg of a multi… Tsonga has been pedestrian all week, can’t believe he beat Nadal. Typical! Why do I keep putting tennis legs in Accas?!

  17. Aye Right 1 year ago

    Nadal was atrocious there I know people will say he played well but really that forehand wasn’t that impressive and he did what amateurs do when they find themselves in difficult situations which is flap.

  21. Picksix 1 year ago


    Gennady Golovkin V David Lemiux

    * Total Rounds Under 6.5 @ 4/5

    This fight shouldn’t last long, Lemiux isn’t going to approach this fight any different to his others and will constantly come forward wich means he is going to be in big trouble against GGG. Golovkin is possibly the hardest puncher in boxing and with a granite chin too you just can’t go toe to toe with him. Although Lemiux is KO specialist himself he is not on Golovkins level and should be stopped early. For how long this fight will last which I don’t think will be long this is a must watch

  22. mlac 1 year ago

    Today/tonight’s NAP:

    cleverly v fonfara over 9.5 rounds
    Kohei Kono V koki kameda over 9.5 rounds

    just under Evens *won*

    Cleverly v fonfara to go to the scorecards 8/15 *won*
    Cleverly to win on points 3/1 (small stakes) *lost*

    felt sorry for clev, he was completely dominating fonfara at midway through the fight and was winning by 4-5 rounds and that broken nose completely changed it.

    will post my boxing picks for tonight later but heads up for peeps who want something in their acca:

    Golovkin v Lemule under 9.5 rounds 1/3
    GGG v lemule Under 7.5 rounds 4/5

  23. mlac 1 year ago

    beat me to it picksix 😀

    sorry it’s under 7 rounds * now @8/11

    cannot wait for this fight.

  24. mlac 1 year ago

    tonights boxing:

    Mathew macklin v Jason welborn under 9.5 rounds 3/10

    Macklin needs to look impressive here against a journeyman who has been stopped by lesser opposition.

    GGG v Lemule Under 9.5 rounds 1/3 under 7 rounds 8/11:
    for obvious reasons this is NOT going the distance, i will be amazed if it goes beyond 7.

    Kid Yafai v Jason cunningham over 9.5 rounds 11/10:
    i expect yafai to get a TKO but cunningham being the bigger man will hopefully hold out until the later rounds, yafai isnt a huge puncher and struggled recently against a journeyman.

    Sam eggington v Dale evans Eggington KO 3/10 under 9.5 rounds 1/2:
    Eggington has been beaten by evans but dont let his fool you, it was a 3 rounder at the very beginning of his career, Eggington will show he has a class above tonight and stop Evans in the mid rounds.

    Roman Gonzalez V brian viloria over 9.5 rounds 5/4:

    Gonzalez is arguably the best boxer on the planet now floyd has retired, The bookies are expecting him to blow viloria out early but viloria is a very live opponent who is very durable and underrated, this is my least confident pick, but i expect to be able to cover around the midway point.

  25. Topbuzzer 1 year ago


    Jason welborn to win 8/1

    Can see a big upset here

  26. mlac 1 year ago

    @topbuzzer might be worth a quid or two and macklin is definately past it BUT looking at their records with welborn being KO’d 3 times all to journeyman by hooks to the body + with macklin being the bigger man and a body punching specialist doesnt bode well for welborn.

  27. Topbuzzer 1 year ago

    @malc yes i agree, but at that price it has to be taken macklin definitely not the fighter he once was its just a matter of time, shame eggington isn’t fighting gavin really fancied eggington for that one can’t find any value in the evans fight.

  28. Harry 1 year ago

    Looking forward to the New Zealand v France game later. Wouldn’t like to touch new Zealand on a -13 handicap as these knockout games are often very tense and close. France also very very unpredictable and capable of an upset depending on what mood they turn up in. Just going to back 2 scorers as the prices are good with it being a QF

    Julian Savea – anytime tryscorer

    6/4 skybet

    Aaron Smith – anytime tryscorer

    7/2 paddypower

  29. mlac 1 year ago

    ^ if you wait a few rounds you will get eggington KO for just under evens.

    also under 9.5 rounds @1/2 and under 7 rounds is 11/10 m8.

    • The Paul Bunyan Trophy dates back to 1953, when Michigan State entered the Big Ten Conference, and has become the cornerstone of the Michigan-Michigan State rivalry since its inception.

    • It was a donation by then-Michigan governor G. Mennen Williams; the Paul Bunyan Trophy stands nearly four feet tall.

    • The wooden trophy depicts the figure of legendary folk hero Paul Bunyan astride an axe, with his feet planted over the state of Michigan. On each corner of the state lies a flag emblazoned with the Michigan ‘M’ or the Spartan ‘S.’ Each year the winner of the Michigan-Michigan State game is awarded ownership of the prize.

    Greater Rushing Effort Key to Victory

    • Michigan is ranked in the top five nationally in six defensive categories.

    • The defense has pitched a shutout in three consecutive games for the first time since the 1980 season; Michigan became the first FBS school to accomplish the feat since Kansas State shut out three straight opponents in 1995.

    • U-M is just the fifth team ever to have multiple 28-point shutouts over AP ranked teams in a single season: 1945 Army, 1948 Michigan, 1956 Georgia Tech, 1966 Notre Dame and this year’s teams are the only to accomplish the feat.

    Bodies will be left on this pitch, its the game that means everything.
    Big Brother v Little Brother and Michigan Wolverines are the big brother,

    Michigan at home which should see 115,000 fans in the stadium which isn’t bad for a college game and for a stadium that is meant to have an official attendance of just over 107,000

    Mark Dantonio v Jim Harbaugh
    Michigan State Spartans v Michigan Wolverines
    This will worth watching

    Penn State 5-1

    But we can rule out Penn State
    Michigan win tonight then they should qualify

    Good luck everyone.

      Duncan Poundcake, I have to agree although that’s a boost to Scotland getting Gray and Ford back.
      Didn’t think that appeal had a chance of being overturned completely although the two who would have replaced them will be gutted.

  49. OriaZ 1 year ago

    @Harry, thanks for the tryscorers, little profit with Savea even if Smith didn’t get one… what a game. 62-13 … frenchmen didn’t get any chance.

    @Jordan, ment to say awesome tipping on the football thread. Been a bad day all around for most but you managed to pick out the right games it seems!

  52. Johnb 1 year ago

    Jabrill Peppers is having a good game

  53. Andy 1 year ago

    Having seen the way Scotland played several times in person and also the way Australia play.
    Scotland’s real chances of points won’t come from tries

    Australia’s defence is a solid yellow wall and they proved that with 13 men against Wales and didn’t concede a single point. They rarely give away penalties and I can’t see anything but a yellow steamroller!
    The southern vs northern hemisphere is a battle but my word what a game tonight by the all blacks!
    My tip is
    Australia -15
    Ireland -4
    As a double…. Depending on your Brooke it’s around 4/1 …

    Overall win of World Cup has to be all blacks!

  54. Duncan Poundcake 1 year ago

    MR F ,sadly not to be for the Portuguese golfer I still think but he was worth a punt at the price ,he has a good swing imo ,One to consider when he has more experience GL.
