What next for Luis Suarez? The Liverpool striker faces another lengthy ban after his latest in-play nibble this time on Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini and we are betting on the length of his ban at BetVictor and make 22-24 games our favourite at 3/1.
If you think FIFA are a toothless body we bet 5/1 he receives no ban for his latest indiscretion and 5/1 also he is banned for 25 games or more. Suarez could come back hungrier than ever of course but the 5/2 for him to finish the 2014/15 Premier League season makes no appeal especially if you think Liverpool might say enough is enough.
That said who would now want to buy the Uruguayan? The striker is reported to be on in excess of £200k a week at Anfield but Brendan Rodgers might now think enough is enough. Barcelona were 4/6 to take Suarez to the Nou Camp by September 2 after a flurry of bets with Real Madrid 6/1 but the Spanish giants’ have their own image to consider and they may now have to review their summer transfer targets.
Sheffield’s Danny Willet finished in a tie for third in the Irish Open last weekend winning over 100,000 Euros in the process although he didn’t quite have the rub of the green on the final day. The result was enough to secure his place in the Open Championship at Carnoustie next month and featured his second hole-in-one of the season in Round three. Willet tees up in the BMW Championship in Germany this week for which he is a 40/1 shot at BetVictor behind home favourite and recent US Open Champion Martin Kaymer at 8/1.
Willet is 150/1 for the Open Championship behind 10/1 joint favourites Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods and the latter returns from injury this week in the Quicken Loans National at Congressional for which he is a top price 18/1 at BetVictor. That price could look very big come Sunday evening although he is bound to be slightly rusty following microdiscectomy surgery on March 31st. Jordan Speith, Jason Day and Justin Rose are the 14/1 joint favourites but all eyes will be on the return of the Tiger.
Yorkshire will entertain Lancashire in the T20 Blast on Friday evening looking for the double over the Red Rose County following their sensational win at Old Trafford last month. Yorkshire are 6/1 to win the Trophy behind 4/1 favourites Hampshire and 4/6 to do the double over Lancashire with the visitors 6/5.
