I love watching Athletics and I start betting on this league with good results.
Triple jump final tonight. With Pedro Pablo Pichardo and Aleksandr Yurchenko out, the final looks very open.
Favorite is Alexi Copello. He jumped twice over 17m20 this season. But Nelson Evora will also have a chance. The 2008 Olympic champion knows how to be there in big events. In Rio, he was the only European finalist with Compaoré and Hoffman. He has the best personal record.
Frenchman Jean-Marc Pontvianne only needed one try to qualify and cross 16m77. The Nîmois will certainly be fighting with the Spanish Torrijos for 3rd place. He has already crossed the 17m mark, unlike the Spaniard. I give him an advantage on the podium.
2u Jean-Marc Pontvianne podium @ 2.65 (Unibet)
1u Nelson Evora @ 4.10 (PINNACLE)
Bet: Warrington Wolves-10
Super League – Rugby XIII – 20h45
The Catalan Dragons are travelling to Warrington. They have nothing more to play because with 4 days to go, they are 8 points behind the 4th, Warrington (a victory is worth 2 points). Last Sunday, they qualified for the Champions Cup final by defeating St Helens. They’ll face Warrington in the final at the end of the month!
Two players stand out on the Catalan side. Scrum half Josh Drinkwater, who joined the club at the mid-season, has already scored 7 tries and delivered 14 try assists. He also has a very high foot success rate. He’s the top-scorer. The other key player is winger Tony Gigot. He was the man of the game against St Helens. The coaches decided to include many youngsters for this trip. Sam Moa, Louis Anderson, Julian Bousquet, Lewis Tierney, Benjamin Jullien, Tony Gigot, Josh Drinkwater are rested! The team is largely reshaped.
Warrington is 4th and well on his way to qualifying for the playoffs. They can even hope to move up to 2nd place because Wigan has only 3 points more. The coaches decided to rest Stefan Ratchford, Mike Cooper and Ben Murdoch-Masilan. Three important players but Warrington has a better depth of strength. Plus, rookie Thompson will be playing his first game.
A team that has no stakes and comes with a B team faces a team that plays TOP 4. This handicap is too low. Home by 15 at least..

Ireland has a good team. They have a big support in San Fransisco. They have one of the best 7s player with Conroy. They can even win this one.

Wales was very bad in this tournament. Canada was impressive against Japan and could win vs Australia.
Canada can win by 10/11

World Cup Sevens San Fransisco – Ranking match for places 9-12.
Ireland began with a win over Chile before sinking against South Africa (45-7). In the ranking match, they won vs Kenya 24-14. They defended well and could count on a good Conroy, who scored an hat-trick.
Wales started with a success against Zimbabwe before being taken out by the USA (35-0). In the standings, they struggled to beat Samoa (24-19 after extra time). It was a very poor match and the Welsh made a lot of technical mistakes. They took advantage of Samoa’s huge mistakes to score tries.
From what I’ve seen since the tournament started, I can see the Irish stronger.
Argentina – France

World Cup Sevens San Fransisco – Ranking match for places 5-8.
France started with a crushing victory against Jamaica (50-0). In the eighth round, Les Bleus beat Australia (17-22), to everyone’s surprise. In 1/4, they faced New Zealand (7-12). They’re not far from victory. The Blacks were feverish and were sanctioned with three yellow cards.
Argentina beat Canada 28-0 before falling to Fiji 7-43.
France had won 28-26 in Paris against Argentina. But the Pumas were very handicapped. In particular, they were deprived of their two best tryscorer Sabato and Roura. France had to take a blow behind the head with their defeat against the Blacks. I see Argentina winning easily.
Kenya – Ireland

World Cup Sevens San Fransisco.
I watched most of the game even if it’s during the night. Ireland was trashed 41-7 by South Africa but South Africa is, with Fiji,the best team of the World. Ireland has a good team. They made good sevens tournament. They were 3rd in London.
Kenya lost 31-26 against Scotland after leading 26-0 ! It’s hard to be motivated after such a game. Keny is not among the best team. They have fast players but they are very poor defensively.
This game is 50/50. I take Ireland with handicap !!
Samoa 7s v Scotland 7s
Scotland 7s (Match Result) @ 2.600 1/10 Bet365

Pick published in paid few minutes ago.
Match for 13th – 16th place.
Samoa lost in the 1/4 final of the Trophy against France on the score of 19-7. During that match, they lost their best try scorer Joe Perez who was sent off. He is therefore suspended until the end of the tournament. Alamanda Motuga and Alatasi Tupou are already missing who are the team’s 2nd and 3rd best tryscorers.
Scotland lost 28-5 to Wales. In group, they were closed to qualifying after beating Russia and South Africa.
Samoa’s gonna be tired. They’ve only 5 substitutes. I see Scotland coming through
France 7s v Samoa 7s
France 7s (Match Result) @ 1.95 5/10 Bet365

Trophy game in this Sevens of Paris at 09:29.
France finished third but could have done better. They played well against England and USA. Against Argentina, they made a big first half before running out of steam in 2nd half. That still allowed them to win by 2 points. I’ll repeat myself, but there are a lot of players back in the team.
Samoa were in the death group with Fiji, New Zealand and Kenya. They came out with three defeats. This team is greatly weakened compared to usual with the suspension of their captain and best try scorer, Alatasi Tupou. Other players are missing includind Tila Mealoi, Alamanda Motuga,…
France have been underestimated since the beginning of the competition, while Samoa seem overestimated to me. I expect France to win.
