Beat the Bookies (Summer): Week 5

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 28/06/2012

LAST week's tips didn't get anywhere. Salford started well against Saints but fell away in the second half, Ronaldo was too good against the Czechs and Selena Williams is still in Wimbledon.

Rugby League

  • St Helens -16.5 v Hull KR - away win (2, Bet365). Hull KR were unlucky to lose last week to Catalans Dragons, and Saints wobbled a bit in their game last Friday night. Rovers have been in good form of late and the match could be a lot closer than this.


  • Wimbledon - Viktor Troicki vs Juan Monaco - Troicki (2.92, Marathon). Grass should suit Troicki a lot more than it will Monaco, who has only ever beat Troicki on clay.

    Euro 2012

  • Winner - lay Spain (1.94, SMarkets). Spain are so boring and predictable either Italy or Germany [written before Italy won] should be able to devise a game plan which will allow them to beat the Spaniards.
