St. Brigids are slight underdogs

An entertaining weekend of sport lies ahead beginning with the Connacht Club football championships with St. Brigid’s travelling to Pearse Park in Galway on Sunday to take on Killererin in the semi-final. The Kiltoom men are slight underdogs in what should be a closely-fought contest. The match betting is as follows: 4/5 Killererin, St. Brigid’s 5/4, draw 13/2. The outright bettting for the Connacht Club Championships is as follows: Ballina 5/6, Killererin 11/4, St. Brigid’s 7/2 and Tourlestrane 8/1.  In soccer, after last week’s top of the table clash, the revised betting for the Premiership is as follows: Manchester United 5/4, Arsenal 5/2, Chelsea 7/2, Liverpool 8/1, 80/1 bar. The weekend feature games include Manchester United hosting Blackburn on Sunday. The betting for that is as follows: Manchester United 4/11, Blackburn 8/1, draw 10/3. Elsewhere out-of-sorts Reading host Arsenal. Reading 5/1, Arsenal 4/7, draw 11/4. Finally, the Heineken Cup kicks off on Friday with the outright betting as follows: Stade Francais 3/1, Biarritz 5/1, Leicester 8/1, Perpignan 10/1, Gloucester 10/1, Wasps 16/1, Munster 16/1, Leinster 25/1. It is difficult to envisage the Irish provinces mounting a serious challenge. Bet of the Week For our bet of the week this week we will go for an outright punt on the Heineken Cup. Stade Francais are a strong outfit and highly experienced and at 3/1 are an attractive betting proposition.
