Racing Post podcast panel contemplate Jurgen Klopp’s debut
In the latest enthralling edition of the Racing Post’s popular Coral-sponsored podcast, aptly entitled ‘Postcast’, John Hill joins Bruce Millington, Daniel Charles and James Milton to discuss the best bets and most tempting prices ahead of this weekend’s football fixtures. To hear their latest thoughts, have a listen below:
Among the array of Premier League and Championship topics covered, the Postcast panel of experts cast an eye over Jurgen Klopp’s upcoming Liverpool debut, as the newly-installed Anfield boss takes his team to tackle Tottenham.
Spurs are 7/2 to win and both teams to score, with the hosts tipped to capitalise in this early Saturday kick-off. Though looking further forward, it could be worth considering Liverpool’s long-term future under Klopp, as Coral feature several specials for the quirky German coach, who is 7/2 to win one major trophy in 2015/16.
Another boss set to make his bow is also on the intriguing Postcast agenda, as Millington and co question Sam Allardyce’s appointment at Sunderland, and whether the much-maligned manager can save the Mackems from relegation.
The Black Cats have beaten the drop twice in as many recent seasons, but are a 2/9 price for their luck to run out this time.
In other weekend action, the Racing Post crew run the rule over Arsenal’s trip to Watford. At 7/4 to win to nil in the Hornets’ nest, the Gunners are also now 9/4 second favourites to take the Premier League title, following their recent 3-0 thrashing of Manchester United.
Also on the table for discussion, after automatic Euro 2016 qualifying was wrapped-up, is which teams already featuring in the France finals present the best and worst value for punters.
Currently, England are 11/1 for European glory, and customers can also stand to profit from their opinion on which Three Lions squad players could book a surprise seat on the plane next summer. Similarly under the microscope, are unseeded Ireland’s chances of emerging through the third place play-offs unscathed, can the Boys in Green beat the big-guns?
