Betting news on England, Felipe Massa and Templegate’s tips

by Josh Powell | October 18, 2012

Football

England laboured to a 1-1 draw with Poland in Warsaw last night as their qualifying campaign hit a minor speed-bump. The Three Lions took the lead through Wayne Ronney but were pegged back when Joe Hart flapped at a corner and Kamil Glik took advantage. One of the reasons being reported for the poor performance by Roy Hodgson’s team is the sleeping pills they took on Tuesday night.

England are still unbeaten though and remain the 3/10 favourites to top Group H on the way to Rio.

Darts

One of the richest competitions in darts reaches Group Six today as three-time world champ John Part, 2009 Championship League winner Colin Osbourne and Jamie Caven join the party.

The Championship League of darts winning pot is £10,000 but with money up for grabs in every leg it is one of the most exciting tournaments on the floor.

The darts isn’t on your television screens but you can see all the tungsten tossing action streaming live on PPtv. 

Formula 1

Felipe Massa has signed a new one-year deal with Ferrari meaning he will be at the team until the end of 2013. The 31-year-old only collected 11 points from the opening eight races this season but has suddenly seen a resurgence in form.

Massa’s team-mate Fernando Alonso is the only man who can realistically challenge Sebastian Vettel for the F1 Drivers Championship with four races remaining. The Spaniard is a 5/2 shot with the Red Bull driver a clear 1/4 favourite to retain his crown.

Racing

There is racing today from Uttoxeter, Wincanton, Kempton, Wolverhampton and Punchestown. Unfortunately the card at Brighton was abandoned as the track was waterlogged.

The Sun’s leading tipster Templegate has his nap running in a handicap chase at 3.50pm at Wincanton.

Last Shot can hit the bullseye today. He stepped up on his chasing debut when a good second at Fontwell two weeks ago. He looks well weighted and is still improving’.
