Sports Betting News Roundup – 3rd May 2018

Kentucky Derby betting odds

Can O’Brien make the headlines by winning the first two classics and the first leg of America’s Triple Crown?

There’s a huge weekend of horse racing ahead with the 2000 and 1000 Guineas at Newmarket and the first leg of America’s Triple Crown, the Kentucky Derby.

1000 / 2000 Guineas Betting Odds

Remarkably Aidan O’Brien trains the first two 2000 Guineas betting odds with Gustav Klimt being the market leader at a top-priced 5/2 (888sport).  The Irish trainer fields five fillies in the 1000 Guineas including the race favourite, Happily (5/2 BetBright).

In America the handler fields Mendelssohn who is vying for favouritism in the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs.  Betway are currently top-priced about Europe’s big hope, they are offering 9/2 about the colt who cost $3 million as a two-year-old.


The Kentucky Derby and its fellow ‘Triple Crown’ races, the Preakness and Belmont Stakes are three races which have eluded O’Brien and his principle owners, the ‘Coolmore Lads’ which incorporate John Magnier, Michael Tabor* and Derrick Smith.  But in Mendelssohn, who will be ridden by Ryan Moore, they have a very real chance of breaking new ground.

If you think Aidan O’Brien can win all three of these three-year-old championship races at the weekend, Betvictor will give you 20/1 as part of their #PriceItUp bet request service.


Liverpool’s Betting Bonanza

Champions League Semifinals Betting Preview
If you think this weekend is a betting bonanza, Liverpool’s qualification for the UEFA Champions League final is likely to create massive football betting turnover.  The Reds face Real Madrid who are chasing their 13th title and hope to retain the cup for a third consecutive year.

The final takes place in Kiev on May 26th and it is 8/11 (top priced at William Hill) that Real Madrid win the competition either within 90 minutes of play, in extra time, or by a penalty shootout.


Paddy Power / Betfair Need a Result

The 2018 World Cup starts just three weeks later (June 14th) and there is no disputing this is the biggest betting event on the planet.  Favourable results can have a major effect on any bookmaker’s balance sheet which is something the Paddy Power Betfair group now need quite badly.

On Wednesday the company announced a drop in operating profit of 12%  following a string of “bookmaker-friendly sports results”.  Resultantly 6% was written off of the company’s share price on the London Stock Exchange. The value of Paddy Power Betfair stock has now dropped by more than 22% in the past 12 months.  


*Tabor did own Thunder Gulch who won the 1995 Kentucky Derby for US trainer D. Wayne Lucas.
