Sunday morning’s Champions League final is one of those events that is definitely worth staying up for, and I can’t think of a better final line up than Borussia Dortmund Vs Bayern Munich. Both sides know how to play attractive soccer, both sides attack repeatedly and both know how to entertain.
Bayern Munich are strong favourites at, however I like the look of Borrussia Dortmund to pull it off. Bayern have a habit of choking in the big final, and I can see it happening again.
Dortmund are Read the rest of this entry »to win in 90 minutes, and to lift the cup. I like the look of both those odds. Read more »
Your Song has been drawn out in the car park for Saturday’s Doomben 10000, one of Queensland’s premier races of the year.
Buffering has the 12 stall but all the pace in the race is expected to come from the side slots with Rain Affair (5), Steps in Time (6) and Epaulette (4).
Other notables are Sea Siren (9), Rangirangdoo (14) and Spirit of Boom (13).
Prior to the draw Sportsbet took am $85,000 win bet on Your Song at odds ofwhich is obviously a risky bet so close to the barrier draw. The bookmakers are yet to release revised barrier draw odds but it’s highly likely the odds will increase for the favourite.

Wednesday’s Europa League final in Amsterdam looks likely to yield more entertainment for Benfica fans with activities outside the stadium than in, as Chelsea are rightly installed as keen favourites.
To lift the trophy Chelsea arewith Benfica . I feel the better value is on the handicap betting, with Chelsea -1 available at .
Chelsea’s recent form is strong, winning 6 of their last 8 games and with 2 draws, scoring at least 2 goals in every game bar the 1-0 victory against Manchester United. They have also got very recent European Final experience with last year’s Champions League victory.
Benfica on the other hand have a relatively weak streak, with 4 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in their last 8 games, including losing their last game, against PC Porto. They do often score though, so I think a cheeky correct score bet on Chelsea winning 3-1 atis in order.
In my opinion an Over 2.5 goals atis an almost certainty.
Other interesting Europa League 2013 Final bets are:
Chelsea to win both halves:
Lampard to score in 90 minutes and Chelsea to win the match:
Chelsea to score before and including 28th minute:
I don’t see much hope for Benfica, however given their likelihood to score, a bet on Benfica to Score Exactly 1 Goal is available at.Read more »
