Sports Tips and Predictions
The ‘big five’ European leagues have released their schedules for the 2021-22 season so we have analysed the fixture difficulty for them all. While every team has to play everyone else at some point, timing can be everything. A tough start can easily undermine a positive pre-season, while a gentle run of opening fixtures can provide the momentum necessary for a successful campaign.
Canada were one of the most impressive teams during the group stage of the CONCACAF Gold Cup and may feel aggrieved to be seen as the underdogs for their quarter-final in the eyes of the bookmakers. The Reds enjoyed two comfortable victories before a narrow loss denied them top spot in their group, although it should be noted Costa Rica were one of only two teams to progress with three wins out of three.
Michael van Gerwen continues his quest to end his title drought when he faces Nathan Aspinall in the World Matchplay quarter-finals on Friday. The Dutchman is enduring an unusual barren spell having not won a tournament since November while Peter Wright and Michael Smith square off in the night’s other last-eight clash.
Mexico head into the quarter-finals as the 6/4 favourites in the CONCACAF Gold Cup winner odds and will hope to prove why when they face 22/1 outsiders Honduras. Mexico have won the Gold Cup a record 11 times including three of the last five editions so there is plenty of reason to think they are the team to beat.
Great Britain are one of the leading medal contenders in the women’s Olympic football and will hope to show why when they begin their campaign against Chile. England’s run to the World Cup semi-finals two years ago suggests a squad with three players from Scotland and Wales to strengthen it should be capable of reaching the latter stages.
Great Britain will hope to have an athlete on the podium as we check out the Olympic women’s 100m odds for the Tokyo Games. Dina Asher-Smith is one of the Team GB squad’s biggest medal hopes on the track in Tokyo in the 100m and 200m but faces fierce competition from Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce in both events.
The women’s football at the Olympics has more prestige than the equivalent for men and we have taken a look at the leading contenders to win gold. With no age restrictions in place, many of the top players in the world will be on show at the Tokyo Games so here is our assessment of the best Olympic women’s football predictions.
Milwaukee Bucks are only one win away from their first NBA title in 50 years when they face Phoenix Suns in Game 6 in the early hours of Wednesday. The Bucks were trailing 2-0 to Phoenix after Monty Williams’ side won back-to-back home games but Milwaukee are on a roll after three straight triumphs to leave them on the cusp of their first success since 1971.
With Euro 2020 now over, attention is shifting to the upcoming domestic football season but the competition’s impact may be felt here as well. Until the first ball of a new campaign is kicked, the attention of fans tends to be fixated on the transfer market, where the Euro 2020 stars will have drawn the attention of the game’s big spenders.
