This snooker and football acca pays over £105 from a £5 stake
Five picks from Thursday’s sporting action
With the Europa League taking a back seat this Thursday, the Coral News Team have put together a tasty five-fold consisting of snooker and international football instead.
From the Champion of Champions tournament just after 1pm to Croatia v Greece in the evening, there’s a wide range of action to get stuck into.
If you choose to back this Thursday five-fold, you could be in line for a tasty profit of £108.80 from a £5 stake. All prices and returns correct at time of writing.
Ronnie O’Sullivan to beat Neil Robertson
Things get going in the Champion of Champions tournament from Coventry. Ronnie O’Sullivan has made the final here in three of the last four years and has the quality to dispose of Neil Robertson in the Group semi-finals.
The Rocket has won 12 of his 19 encounters with the Aussie and is taken to improve that sequence at odds of 1/2.
John Higgins to beat Anthony McGill
John Higgins is the current holder of the tournament and as such will be eager to retain his crown. He defeated today’s opponent in the final of the Indian Open in September and should make it through here.
Northern Ireland to beat Switzerland
In what should be a tight encounter at Windsor Park, the Coral News Team are backing Northern Ireland to come out on top. The hosts are devilishly difficult to break down and boast a highly impressive home record of nine wins in their last 11 games.
With world champions Germany the only side to beat Michael O’Neill’s men in Belfast in a competitive fixture since 2013, it makes sense to take advantage of the 27/10 on a Northern Ireland win.
Netherlands to beat Scotland
Incredibly, neither of these countries will be present in Russia next summer. However, Netherlands should still have the quality to be able to see off their hosts this evening. The Dutch have won their last three matches against the Scots without conceding a goal.
Plus, the Oranje are actually in pretty decent form. They’ve won six of their last seven, including their last three on the spin. It’s even-money that they continue their good form at Pittodrie.
Croatia to beat Greece
Croatia are unbeaten on home soil since a 2-1 defeat to Belgium in 2013. That’s a run of 16 games without defeat on their own patch, with 13 of those ending in a Croatia victory.
They’re 2/5 to see off Greece at 7:45pm.
