A Big Weekend To Bet

This weekend there’s a huge opportunity to enjoy some world class sport over many categories… and make some money doing it courtesy of!

Whether its golf, cycling, cricket, Formula One or just our favourite pastime football, that you enjoy, there is a feast of top class enjoyment to be had in front of the TV this weekend, so why not make it even more exciting than having a few quid riding on it?!

Just a few short miles down the coast the World’s best are fighting it out at Royal Lythan St Anne’s for the Open Golf Championship. Everyone is talking about Tiger Woods, but here at PNE Betting an each way bet on Ernie Els is a must. The experienced South African love links golf and has a fantastic record in the tournament. He started well on Thursday and sits in the group on -3, so get on him before the weekend starts in earnest!

The Tour De France comes to a close on the Champs Elysees on Sunday afternoon and history looks set to be made with Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome set to occupy the top two slots – the first British winner likely to come from Wiggins with his favoured time trial on Saturday following Friday’s easier effort.

The bet is on the stage winners for Friday and Sunday and we think it could be a great three days for the Brits with Mark Cavendish winning Friday and Sunday and Wiggins and Froome getting the best two times in the time trial on Saturday… get on a fantastic British three days in France!

Speaking of Cavendish, he proved cycling is anything but a minority sport with his Sports Personality of the Year victory in 2011. The 2012 award may be five months away but even in an Olympic year Wiggins looks like a real contender – get him now before he becomes unbackable come December.

Over at Hockenheim – everyone’s favourite Grand Prix track – the Red Bulls seem to be coming into form at the right time. The home fans will be hoping that Michael Schumacher can turn back the years and give the German’s something to cheer about, but we fancy current World champ Sebastien Vettell to brush his contenders aside in the Bavarian forests.

Finally, the fight to be the World’s best continues at The Kia Oval with England’s pace attack taking on South Africa’s pace attack… oh, and batsmen as well! Did you know that six of the top ten best bowlers in the world rankings are playing in this game - Steyn, Anderson, Broad, Morkel, Swann, and Philander!

The pitch looked pretty benign on Thursday’s opening day with Alistair Cook leading the way, but with Morkel and Steyn both enjoying spells around the wicket, the pitch could be ripe for some Swanny Super Overs come the weekend. The sun is set to blaze on Saturday and Sunday in London, and as the pitch dries and cracks the spin of Graeme Swann could prove the difference in this opener – back him for a ‘five’fer’ in both innings and you won’t be far away from it!
