It was a fine week for Betting.Betfair with our writers hitting a lorryload of handsome winners across plenty of different sports...
"Horschel's victory makes it five tournament winning tips for the each-way column since the turn of the year, and a running P&L of more than £250 based on a £5 EW bet on each of the regular tipsters' bets every week."
Rory McIlroy may have missed out on the £6m FedEx Cup main prize but Billy Horschel's Tour Championship win was very good news for Betting.Betfair's Steve Rawlings - he was keen on the in-form American in both his event preview and each-way betting column last week.
And Horschel rewarded Steve's faith at a handsome price, coming home first of the elite 29 man field at 23.022/1.
That makes it five tournament winning tips for the each-way column since the turn of the year, and a running P&L of more than £250 based on a £5 EW bet on each of the regular tipsters' bets every week.
Lewis Jones then got the weekend off to an explosive start with a tip of the draw at 3.55 in Arsenal's set-to with Manchester City before Jonno Turner landed a double figure odds winner with his Big Saturday Multiple - Reading, Chesterfield and Burton delivering for Mr T at a generous price of 10.24.
And the good times kept rolling via B.B's very own Mike Norman, who was knocking in winners left, right and of course centre in his many football previews including Everton and Middlesbrough in his Premier League and Championship columns. Manchester United have been unconvincing so far this season but Mike was convinced they would get the better of QPR with ease and completely nailed it in his preview of the Sunday kick-off, recommending wagers on over 2.5 and 3.5 goals @ 2.89/5.
That was also a winning bet for Luke Moore as he - alongside Mike and BB editor Dan Thomas - all put up successful tips at decent prices in the editors' Betting Battle, with only Joe Dyer letting the side down.
Perhaps the most credit should go to Jaymes Monte for his contrarian take on Liverpool's home fixture against Aston Villa. Betfair customers were all over the Anfield side but Jaymes was happy to oppose and even put up a tip on Villa recording a clean sheet at 11.521/2. Kudos to the man!
And it wasn't just golf and football that supplied the notable winners. Cricket's own Champions League competition begun on Saturday and Paul Krishnamurty got into the swing of the event straightaway with Farveez Maharoof topscoring for Northern Express at a recommended price of 12.011/1 in their defeat at the hands of Mumbai, while Ed Hawkins backed Lahore to beat Mumbai at 3.052/1.
The Champions League continues to October 4 and we're previewing every game of the tournament.
On to racing, where 80/20 man Nick Shiamborous had a good week, with three winners for a 5.2 point profit. The highlight was the 9.7 selection Pelagian at Brighton.
Finally to NFL where Luca Bercelli had a cracking week with 12 winners from his week two tipsheet, for an 8.34 point profit.
