Welcome back to ‘Brooke’s Best Bits’. A record breaking week for Feltham1, as they recorded the highest weekly ROI we have ever seen on betconnect! After placing 13 bet requests last week, Feltham1 finished with a weekly ROI of an incredible 286.5%. The 15:05 at Thirsk on Saturday has to be the highlight, where Feltham1 backed Pennsylvania Dutch at 14/1 in the 19 runner handicap. Pennsylvania Dutch got out of the gates well, and lead for most of the race to score by just over a length. It’s no surprise to see the next 2 pros in the top 3 from last week. Both Birkdale and benraw123 landed a 50/1 winner over in Ireland! It’s the ‘Best Bet of The Week’ so we’ll go into more detail later. Birkdale finished on a weekly ROI of 239.5%, with benraw123 back in 3rd on 111.5%.
The punters must be liking the look of callumth1‘s pro card, as he was the most popular pro last week, gaining 29 new connections. callumth1 currently has an impressive ROI of 31.1% from over 300 bet requests. Homeandhosed was next, gaining 18 new connections. The excellent cricket pro, 86048066, finished in 3rd after gaining 14 connections. 86048066 cleaned up on the IPL last week, after backing 7 winners from 10 bets! Have a look out for their bets this week.
As I mentioned earlier, Birkdale and benraw123 share the ‘Best Bet of The Week’ title, after they both backed Shanroe Al C each way at 50/1! The 2 mile 5 furlong race took place over in Limerick at 15:40 last Thursday. Shanroe Al C‘s price was smashed in throughout the afternoon, eventually going off at 16/1! The horse made a mockery of the earlier 50/1, and showed why he was so popular, as he travelled strongly into contention under Donagh Meyler. Shanroe Al C took the race up jumping the 2nd last hurdle, and stayed on well to win by 2 lengths. It has to be one of the biggest priced winners we’ve seen on betconnect, so a big well done to both pros, and all the punters that followed the bet in!
The extra category this week is the ‘Specialist Bet of The Week’, and it goes to a quite remarkable bet by the new pro Badgerman. Badgerman saw some value in the 12/1 price that was put on Oss to beat Sparta Rotterdam in the Dutch second tier on Sunday. Sparta Rotterdam had an excellent home record going into the match, winning 13 out of 16 in the league. They were also sitting in 2nd place with Oss back down in 11th. So it was no surprise that Oss were a massive 12/1 to cause an upset. They did more than that however! After going 1-0 down inside 10 minutes, Oss turned things around and came out as 4-1 winners! What a performance from the away side!
