  • Switzerland Best Bets for Euro 2016

    garethp1981 on 20 May at 22:00

    The Swiss national team, the “Nati” as it is often called in Switzerland should be reasonably familiar to anybody who watched England’s qualifying campaign for Euro 2016. The team finished second in that group behind England, who beat them 2-0 on both occasions that the two countries met. The Swiss still qualified reasonably easily, winning all of their other games except when being beaten 1-0 in Slovenia back in 2014. They won 21 points and finished with a reasonably healthy goal difference of +16. Managed by former Lazio manager Vladimir Petković and captained by Stephan Lichtsteiner of Juventus, the Swiss have a reputation for being solid defensively. In the 2006 World Cup they became the first team to be knocked out without conceding a single goal in normal time (they were knocked out on penalties) and they kept clean sheets…

    The Brigadier Gerard Stakes is a Group 3 race for runners aged 4 years and older which is run over 1 mile, 2 furlongs and 7 yards at Sandown on Thursday, 26 May 2016. With an average field size of just over 7 runners during the past decade, the Brigadier Gerard Stakes often provides an interesting puzzle for punters to assess. During the past decade 4 market leaders have obliged for a Loss of 2.00 points, whilst 4 of the remaining 6 winners were, sent off at 7/1 or shorter, with the exceptions starting at odds of 11/1 and 20/1 which suggests that punters should probably concentrate on runners that are quoted at single figure prices.
