Temp Head - BOYLESPORTS CHARITY BET
BOYLESPORTS CHARITY BET
BEAT THE BOOKIES
THE race for All-Ireland football and hurling glory is heading for the home straight but, sadly, our battle with the bookies appears to be meandering up a cul-de-sac right now. Neither side made any profit (again!) last weekend, which may suit Leon Blanche and his team at Boylesports but is worthy diddly-squat to everyone over at Herald HQ.
THE BLANCHE BET: €50 Double on Mayo minors to beat Monaghan @ 8/11 and Mayo seniors to beat Tyrone @ 3/10.
RUNNING PROFIT: €1,187.93
THE HERALD WAGER: €10 on Mayo and Tyrone to draw @ 10/1; €10 treble on Cillian O'Connor to score first goal @ 11/2, Mayo (-4) to beat Tyrone @ 11/10 and Mayo minors to beat Monaghan @ 8/11; €20 treble on Mayo seniors to score first, lead at half-time and full-time @ 13/8, total match points in Mayo/Tyrone being over 33.5pts @ 11/10 and a red card being shown in Mayo/Tyrone @ 11/10; €10 on Colm Boyle being named Sunday Game 'man of the match' @ 40/1.
RUNNING PROFIT: €766.64
