"One of other IPL previewers, Matt Harris, also ended the tournament in style, with his fourth correct top batsman tip in five as 4.03/1 shout Suresh Raina top scored for Chennai in their semi-final clash with Punjab."


Ed described KKR as the 'standout value' at 13.012/1 in his preview back in April and Gautam Gambhir's men delivered, securing victory on Sunday with a thrilling final win over Kings XI Punjab.

One of other IPL previewers, Matt Harris, also ended the tournament in style, with his fourth correct top batsman tip in five as 4.03/1 shout Suresh Raina top scored for Chennai in their semi-final clash with Punjab.

The biggest domestic action of the weekend was at Wembley as Carl Froch took on George Groves, with the Nottingham man stopping the challenger in the eighth with one of the best knockout punches in recent memory. In his preview of the fight, Luke Moore tipped a Froch win inside the distance, at a price of 2.427/5, while Ralph Ellis also recommended backing the champ to win.

The Froch win topped a good week's tipping for Ralph, with Toulon at 1.875/6 completing the second part of a Jonny Wilkinson double and his pre-season 6.411/2 tip Northampton picking up the Aviva Premiership crown.

On to football and it was another profitable week for Paul Robinson's daily Against All Odds column, with four winners for a total profit of 2.8pt

The highlight was on Monday with a successful lay of under 3.5 goals in the Malmo FF v AIK match from Sweden, with the game ending 2-2. 

Finally, golf, and more profit for Paul Krishnamurty's 'Find Me a 100 Winner' column as 170.0169/1 tip Eddie Pepperell delivered nine profits with his price hitting the first lay target of 20.019/1. That's 38 points profit for 2014 now for the column, which looks for three-figure back-to-lay runners from a selected golf tournament each week.
