SPORTS BETTING : Australia to pass this Test at 6-5
Monday 21 July 1997
Confirmation that Atherton's men are still deep in the big sleep came when, after only the weather deprived them in the second Test, Australia romped away with the third at Old Trafford by 265 runs. And, in their recent Tour game with Glamorgan, Australia's gave further evidence of their renewed confidence by taking batting order experimentation to a point where the County Championship leaders could hardly be blamed for accusing their opponents of urine acquisition. Headingley is notable for producing results and, if the weather does not intervene, the visitors should have the last laugh.
Manchester United remain 5-4 favourites to retain their Premiership title with Ladbrokes who then go: 7-2 Newcastle, 4-1 Liverpool and 9-2 Arsenal. However, home counties punters wishing to avail themselves of better prices and avoid paying nine per cent tax to boot, could do worse than go horseracing and seek out boards bookmaker Rod Sapphire, who has been betting 6-4 Manchester United, 4-1 Newcastle, Liverpool, 5-1 Arsenal between races of late.
