Welcome back to Brooke’s Best Bits. It was a rare poor week for the pros on betconnect as sophdabs was the only pro with 10 or more bets to have an ROI over 10%! sophdabs, who has been very consistent since joining the site back in March, landed 18 of the 35 bets they placed last week. The highlight has to be from the opening fixture of the Championship where newly promoted Luton faced Middlesbrough. sophdabs backed Britt Assombalonga to score anytime at 2/1, over 2.5 goals at 21/20, and both teams to score at 5/6. All winners! What a great start to the new season!
The ‘Best Bet of The Week’ title is awarded to worldcup1 who had a big priced winner on day three of the Glorious Goodwood Festival. worldcup1 backed the Japanese raider Deirdre each way at 28/1 in the Qatar Nassau Stakes. Soon to be champion jockey, Oisin Murphy, grabbed the rail on Deirdre and flew past Dettori in the final furlong to win by just over a length. A couple of the betconnect pros were on the 13/8 favourite Hermosa, but she flopped badly finishing last by 38 lengths!
This week we’ll be taking a look at the biggest gamble. The bet was from pro1 last Wednesday, and the gamble is unbelievable. pro1 backed Crystal Tiara at 15/2 in the 18:20 at Leicester three hours before the race. Within that three hours the price was smashed into 7/4! The filly went straight to the front under Gerald Mosse, and made all to win by an easy 4 lengths. Crazy gamble. I hope you were on.
