It was an excellent week for the B.B golf contributors with both Joe Dyer and Mike Norman tipping 40/1 Dubai Desert Classic winner Stephen Gallacher, Paul Krishnamurty landing a 66/1 place in the same event, and Mike also coming agonisingly close to a 1,270/1 double. Here's our weekly round-up of the best tips...

"Joe went for defending champion Gallacher, pointing out his excellent desert form and his very good current form. After a stunning round of 63 on Saturday Gallacher found himself with a two-shot lead. And despite an awful start to his final round the Scot fought back in tremendous fashion to win by a single stroke."


Every week our regular golf writers provide an each-way selection in one of the main Tour events and last week the guys were in Dubai for the 25th staging of the Desert Classic.  

Joe went for defending champion Gallacher, pointing out his excellent desert form and his very good current form. After a stunning round of 63 on Saturday Gallacher found himself with a two-shot lead. And despite an awful start to his final round the Scot fought back in tremendous fashion to win by a single stroke.

Just in behind Gallacher was talented Frenchman Romain Wattel, who stormed through the field to snatch a place at 66/1 for Paul and his followers.

So after the success in Europe all eyes were on the PGA Tour last night. Having also advised an each-way double, with Gallacher forming part of the first leg, Mike then had three live chances going into the last round of the Phoenix Open. A win for Canadian Graham Delaet would have meant the win part of the double paid out at the massive odds of 1,270/1.

But it was agony for Mike as 30/1 selection Delaet finished a shot shy of a playoff, and perhaps even more frustrating was that alongside Delaet in second was Mike's 28/1 selection Bubba Watson who gave up a two-shot lead in the final round.  

But it was still a hugely profitable week for the Double Delight column; Mike's 18-point outlay returned a very impressive 181.5pts thanks to the each-way part of his doubles.

NFL tipster Neil Harvey had a Superbowl to remember. He has been backing the Seahawks all season and provided more reasons to get behind them last week. 

Neil also tipped four winning bets out of five on the side markets for last night's clash. The fifth tip on Marshawn Lynch's rushing yards could also easily have paid out had Seattle not withdrawn him as they were so far ahead. 
 
On to racing and Timeform had a nice double winner for the SmartPlays column on Saturday, as Rebellious Guest and Grendisar both won at Lingfield.

Not many people predicted quite how one-sided the Merseyside derby would be on Tuesday, but Evan Bartlett emerged with a tidy profit after tipping Steven Gerrard as first goalscorer at 11.521/2.

Andy Tongue predicted goals and a fast start for Watford as the Hornets visited Forest on Thursday and he was correct on both counts. His advice to Cash Out on Watford was also spot on as they contrived to throw a two-goal lead away.

England's disastrous tour of Australia is now finally over but cricket correspondent Ed Hawkins managed to eke a profit out of the T20 series with a 9.28/1 tip for Jos Buttler to top score for England in the second game. Ed probably thought it might take more than 22 runs to do so, but a win's a win!

Elsewhere, Alex Steedman correctly predicted that Anthony Joshua would stop Dorian Darch in round two, while Paul Krishnamurty's astonishing run of snooker success continued as Ding Junhui won the German Masters. Paul's snooker column is now 279 units up since the start of 2013!
