The first day of the domestic season resumed yesterday and in our opinion did not feel like the football season actually took a break. We have European championship competitions, which took us through much of June and days after this was the first phase of the Champions League. From a betting perspective, being accustomed to leagues in the middle east, the Aussie league and Scandinavia suggests that the game is played somewhere every day of the year.
The premiership has yet to begin yet, and kicks off in thirteen days time, with all the talk around Chelsea and Manchester City. The month of August will see the start of the League cup in England, which will see the first and second rounds being commenced. We should not forget that the Cricket season is in play also and is a time of the year, where football fans will revert back to the game after watching cricket for the last couple of months.
With England in a good position to win the ashes, on day three of the test match appears that England will play out a draw, seeing Australia came good and batted to an in excess of five hundred runs in the first innings at Trent Bridge. The draw would suit England, but not those backing an England whitewash. Those taking this bet would have been in the position of giving themselves an extra gamble, on the British Weather, which can be volatile at the best of times. Whether England win this 5-0 or 3-2, winning the ashes means everything to the team!
Looking at the betting for Sunday, there is no shortage of action on all sports. The Cricket season domestically is going through a break in the Sunday league 40 over format, although a game is scheduled for today with Surrey entertaining Scotland. Looking at the football, Derby entertain Blackburn Rovers on one of the TV games and the other comes from Scotland involving Hibs and Motherwell from the SPL.
Copenhagen will look to overturn their slack start of the season winning their first game over in Denmark. Their opponents Randers have drawn both of their games this season. Partick will be looking good to progress in the Scottish Cup with a win over Ayr in the opener. The double pays 21/20 with Boylesports.
Two of the three last games between Derby and Blackburn has seen a goal after the 27th minute and BetVictor go 11/10 on the time of first goal after the 27th minute, which is worthy of taking on.
Lockup Single of the day – Derby/Blackburn: Time of first goal – after 27 minutes 11/10 BetVictor
