After a wild weekend, today is a quieter day on the sporting front. Other than the best tennis player in the world and the Super Bowl champions of course!
After his temporary loss of sanity at the US Open, Novak Djokovic seems determined to make amends at Roland Garros, and he has advanced to the fourth round of the French Open without dropping a set.
His opponent Karan Khachanov is unlikely to stop the World Number One’s march to the quarter finals.
But the big-hitting Russian has actually defeated Djokovic before, in the 2018 Paris Masters final.
And with no value on offer backing the Serb straight up, a correct score bet of 3-1, available at 7/2 with William Hill, may give punters a nice start to the week.
There’s a rare Monday Night Football double header on offer when the New England Patriots face the Kansas City Chiefs and the Green Bay Packers host the Atlanta Falcons.
The Chiefs are not resting on their laurels this season after a stunning Super Bowl victory, and they are heavy favourites to despatch a Patriots side who will be without quarterback Cam Newton.
Over in Green Bay, the Packers are also defending a 3-0 record against a shell-shocked Falcons side who have surrendered not one, but two big leads in their last two games.
You won’t get rich betting on the Packers either, but you can bet on both sides to cover a six-point handicap, at 19/20 with Ladbrokes.
Punters with some pounds in their pocket after Sotsass’ Arc victory have plenty of racing to look forward to today, with action from Pontefract, Wolverhampton, Stratford, Windsor, and Killarney.
