Where’s the World Cup value? |

To date, there have been 19 World Cup tournaments. Now seven of these have been held in the Americas; four in South America, two in Mexico and one in the USA. And what do each of these tournaments have in common? Well; a South American side has won every one of them.

And of course, the World Cup hasn’t been held in is spiritual homeland of Brazil since 1950 (when Brazil lost to Uruguay in the final) so the logic goes that Brazil will probably win it and, if not the host nation, then their old rivals Argentina who, of course, won the last World Cup to be hosted in South America on their own soil back in 1978.

As a consequence of all this kind of thinking Brazil are favourites to win the tournament at around 10/3 followed by Argentina at 9/2. The next best fancied team is Germany at 5/1 followed by current holders Spain at 11/2, then Belgium (currently playing better than they ever have) at 14/1. Holland, meanwhile are around 20/1 and England 25/1 at the time of writing.

Now if you’re any kind of World Cup historian, you’ll quickly realise that the second most successful World Cup nation of all time is missing from this list so far and that is, of course, Italy.

Italy are available at a very generous 20-1 and they love this competition like no other. This makes them the outstanding value bet here. Their 4-0 loss to Spain in the final of Euro 2012 was no disgrace – they’d done extremely well to reach the final. But you can bet they’ll be determined to make amends and they haven’t really put a foot wrong in qualifying – so gobble up that value while you still can – then have a punt on the Euro Lottery and check the latest EuroMillions results to see if you can be in Brazil next summer in person to shout on your nation and/or your selection – but if you’ve got lucky, your wager won’t exactly matter too much!

Haye delighted with new Fury date |

David Haye has admitted his relief and delight after his huge domestic heavyweight clash against Tyson Fury was rescheduled for February 8. The original fight was scrapped a week before the event after Haye suffered a cut in sparring that required six stitches.

While there had been fears the fight would be cancelled altogether, both parties have now managed to come to an agreement over a new date for early 2014. But the fight being postponed hasn’t dented Haye’s confidence, and the Londoner has made it clear he is still convinced he will make easy work of Fury when he does step into the ring.

“News of the date in February is music to my ears. I was absolutely devastated this weekend, and felt as though I’d let a lot of people down. But now, with this new date, I couldn’t be happier.”

“My fans will still get the chance to see what they all wanted to see this weekend - they’ll get to see Tyson Fury sparked out in a spectacular fashion,” insisted Haye.

While Haye will remain the overwhelming favourite for the bout with the sportsbooks listed on TheTop10BestOnlineCasinos.com, there has been a growing feeling Fury has more than a puncher’s chance of shocking the world and proving the bookies wrong.

The giant Fury definitely looked in great shape in the run-up to the original fight against Haye, but will now have to decide whether or not to have an interim bout between now and February.

But with so much on the line from the Haye fight – both in terms of money and his hopes of earning a world title shot - it would be somewhat surprising to see Fury stepping in the ring for a ‘keep busy’ bout before the end of the year.

Serena Returns with a Bang |

The return of Serena Williams to the tennis court with a bang is one of the most awaited gifts for sports fans that have rattled this season of US Open. Serena advanced to the final of this season’s US Open after exhibiting excellent skills in the stretch of six matches this Friday, defeating Li Na of China. Williams has shown great consistency in 24 consecutive matches, before finalizing her berth at the US Open finale, going to take place this Sunday.

In Friday’s match, Serena snatched the first set within 29 minutes. Her opponent, Li Na, did not even stand a chance at the scoreboard until reaching the eighth game. After the match, Li even applauded the manner in which Serena took away the entire game from her. Li even informed that she was a bit nervous from the very beginning of the game that might have led to such a big disappointment. She was not upset to miss the game, but failed to put up a fight against the former World’s No.1 player.
Serena’s big win has enabled tennis fans to keep their fingers crossed for a thrilling US Open Finale on coming Sunday. She will be facing Victoria Azarenka, who has even beaten her twice on hardcourts this year.
When asked about the upcoming final match preparations, Serena told that the final would be a great competition for both of them. She even added that her loss to Azarenka at occasions was even due to missed opportunity, which she is not going to repeat this time.

Williams also said that since they have faced each other for a couple of times and know the playing techniques of each other, the final of US Open is certainly going to be a challenging one for them. Now she is only focused on playing good tennis at the court.

Serena Williams is certainly going to be the favorite for the final match of this season’s US Open and she has even sealed her fan base with Friday’s thrilling win.
