Odds Alpha #6
Last week, we threw a few darts at the board and none of them managed to stick properly. The best we could do was a T6 place for Max Homa at The Players Championship, which was dominated by Scottie Scheffler. For those of you who backed with specific bookmakers, you would have had a split payment on the 20/1 EW bet as multiple players were tied for 6th place. Scheffler now looks to have a huge chance of going back to back next month at the 2023 Masters at Augusta.
However, we still sit on 6 winners from 14 selections and boast a nice profit, so we can look ahead into the future with confidence.
This weekend sees the final weekend of Six Nations Rugby matches. An abysmal England team last weekend will hope to be on a different level this weekend as they make a trip to Dublin. However, with Ireland chasing a Grand Slam in a World Cup year, it is difficult to see how England will do any better than when thoroughly outclassed last weekend. I think Ireland will win this easily.
The Selection: Ireland to WIN -18.5 vs. England @ 2.06
The Details: Saturday 18th March at 5pm GMT

Away from rugby, Arsenal will be desperately looking to pick up a victory against Crystal Palace in the Premier League as they aim to sustain their vital 5 point lead over current champions Manchester City. Chelsea will also host visitors Everton at a crucial time for manager Graham Potter, who has had a very patchy season overall. However, the team have seen a slight uptick in their last three games, with three wins including a victory against Borussia Dortmund. I’m confident that both sides will be picking up victories so am happy to double them up here.
The Selection: Arsenal to WIN and Chelsea to WIN
The Details: 18th and 19th March 2023

Good luck to all who are playing! For those reading this on Wednesday evening before the Liverpool vs. Real Madrid game kicks off, I am fairly sure we’ll be seeing the travelling side on the end of another defeat. This can be backed at around 2.36 on the Lunabets Sportsbook site!
