Very nice finish to last week subscribers were sent 17 football bets over the last seven days, 11 won and produced very decent returns. In addition to which, I also sent them four golf bets, which included two winners, both at odds of 5.0 full details below, along with edited comments.....
ARNOLD PALMER INVITATIONAL (sent thursday)
I am going to back two in form players in the top ten market and am sure that we will get a very good run for our money, infact, I expect to make a decent profit.
Retief Goosen has now won twice this season and it is safe to say that he is back to, or at least close to his best, winning a first USPGA title in four years last week would have really given him a lot of confidence and Goosen is a golfer who holds his form well and often plays well the week after a win. Like many others he took time to come to terms with Bay Hill and it was not until 2005, when after a poor opening round, that things clicked and he finished 4th, after shooting the lowest score for the final 54 holes. He has been 14th and 18th in the last two years, when he has been struggling with his game, now that he arrives in his best shape for years, we can expect an improvement and I would be amazed if he is not involved at the business end of this event.
Nick Watney, is a player who has started 2009 on fire and at just 27 years old, the best is very much still to come. He won the Buick Invitational, then finished second in the CA Championship, where he lost nothing in defeat by battling World Number 2 Phil Mickelson all the way over the closing 18 holes in what was virtually a match and then finishing 12th last week in the "Transitions". He plays the Par 5's incredibly well, that should suit him well on a course where big hitters are often favoured. He came here in poor form last year , finished 21st and doubtless learned a lot about Bay Hill, he is playing on another level at present and if not too exhausted from his recent efforts, then he should once again go close this week.
7 points Goosen to finish in the top ten 3.50 general quote. LOSER
4 points Watney to finish in the top ten 4.50 + ........... 5.0 Paddy Power. WINNER
WITHOUT O'HAIR AND WOODS (sent sunday morning)
Nick Watney is fighting for a top ten spot, he is currently in a tie for tenth with seven other players and played well over the closing holes after a dodgy start yesterday, he is a very solid round 4 player, currently ranked 16th this year and hopefully he will do enough to register a high finish.
O'Hair (-7) leads by five strokes from Tiger (-2), who is in turn a further shot clear of a packed field, I am going to look at the market without those two. Zach Johnson (-1) performs well at this time of year, already has a win to his name this year and four strong round 4 performances, which have left him in the top ten for the season and is a tough battler in contention.
I am going to pair him with Pat Perez, who has a little more ground to make up at level par, but is one of the best Sunday players on tour and has been ranked inside the top 20 for each of the last two seasons. Now that he has a breakthrough win on tour, he can be expected to record another, maybe not today of course, but a very high finish is on the cards. He was very consistent in ultra tough conditions yesterday, when he shot a third straight 70, that is also his average for the last three seasons in the final round and if Bay Hill is as unforgiving today, something similar will take him very close in this bet.
4.5 points Zach Johnson 5.0 Stan James WINNER
3 points Pat Perez 13.0 Stan James. PEREZ WAS TIED WITH JOHNSON PLAYING THE 18TH
