Rickie Fowler to win the Deutsche Bank Championship @ 35/1 (1,032 votes – 35%)

Twilight Son to win the Sprint Cup @ 10/1 (1,032 votes - 35%)

A photo finish was needed before Twilight Son could be named the narrow winner at Haydock on Saturday. The Henry Candy-trained three-year-old took up the lead just inside the final furlong from Magical Memory, but Fergus Sweeney had to dig deep to hold off the strong finishing Strath Burn to claim the competitive handicap at a double figure SP.


Rickie Fowler to win the Deutsche Bank Championship @ 35/1 (1,032 votes - 35%)

Rickie Fowler fired four consecutive sub-70 rounds to claim the second FedEx Cup playoff late Monday night. Fowler started the final round one shot behind 2013 FedEx cup winner Henrik Stenson. A double bogey late in the back nine for Stenson saw Fowler secure a one-shot lead and claim his second tournament of the season at a tasty price.


Republic of Ireland to beat Gibraltar 4-0 @ 5/1 (17%)

Ireland were able to take third place in their Euro 2016 Qualification group ahead of Scotland after running out comfortable winners in Gibraltar. Martin O'Neill's men only carried a 1-0 lead into the break, but Gibraltar had posed very little threat. The boys in green were much more exciting in the second half, with Robbie Keane nabbing a brace, bringing his international tally to 67, before Shane Long made it 4-0 and happy day for correct score backers at 5/1.


England to beat San Marino 6-0 @ 11/2 (13%)

England were able to brush aside San Marino to secure their place in Euro 2016 with a 100% win record. There was no value in Match Odds so punters took to Correct Score betting to find some competitive prices. Wayne Rooney fired home a 13th minute penalty (to see him equal Sir Bobby Charlton's record) but wasn't able to surpass it that day. Instead, Theo Walcott, Ross Barkley and Harry Kane helped raise the tally and give punters a more appealing return.
