Vinnie Jones Betting Tips
“And the winner of the Best Actor Award is . . . VINNIE JONES!”
Yes, folks, that’s right. Best Actor at the UK Film Festival 2020 - signed, sealed and delivered. No messing about, the sweet smell of success is not just Brut these days, it’s my film The Big Ugly.
Catch it on the major streaming services - and tell me what you think. All I know it’s had fantastic press, a great reaction from all who’ve seen it, and the icing on the cake was winning this award. Fantastic and BOOM!
It’s just a shame I can’t bust out the tuxedo for this one - but they tell me the Oscars will be a proper ceremony next month. You never know, Easyodds people, you never know! But winning this UK Film Festival award is special, real special.
Talking of special, what can we say about the special one, Jose Mourinho?
He’s back at the top table, quite literally, and feasting on Premier League teams. Arsenal were brushed aside at the weekend, quite simply put to the sword by the Kane and Son show - orchestrated by the man in the blue mac in the dugout.
Okay, Arsenal had much of the ball in the second half, but did they ever look a threat? Nah. Jose had their number, sucking it up and then breaking fast - and it’s a plan which has worked so far this season, with the possible exception of when they played Chelsea.
The Blues hit the top of the league briefly after beating Leeds.
It might have been a different story had Leeds taken their chances, but the stats tell you Chelsea became the first team to match Leeds in terms of ground covered - Frank did his homework, again! And he’s got the players to do it - unlike Arsenal.
But calm down Spurs and Chelsea fans. I might love you both - even if you don't like each other (!) - but looming on the horizon is a red juggernaut called Liverpool. They gave Wolves a hiding and just seem to be flexing their muscles again.
Man City are also bang there, but I still feel the Champions League will be their number one priority which might just take the edge off them in the league. But maybe not.
Either way, I fancy they’ll have too much for United in the Manchester Derby this weekend.
None of us are sure what’s going on at Old Trafford just now. The team are doing okay - they’ve come back and won two games recently when behind against Southampton and West Ham, so the spirit must be decent.
Any other manager and they’d be given the benefit of the doubt and a free pass, but not Ole it seems. Some people just want him out and Pochettino in - even Paul Pogba’s agent was putting the boot in this week.
Pep doesn’t seem one hundred per cent happy himself, but they’ve bounced back from Spurs with two easy wins against Burnley and Fulham and look in decent enough shape for their trip across the city on Sunday. Pep wants his football to do the talking.
Anyway, kick off the weekend with a Leeds win against West Ham.
Rodrigo could be back in the fray - from the start - although even without him starting the team continues to play well. As I said they had plenty of chances against the Blues and that will give supporters plenty of confidence.
And the feelgood factor in the city could be back. Okay, Elland Road still can’t let fans in because they’re in tier three but the news that season tickets bought this season will be rolled out across next season, too, is just what fans wanted to hear.
Check out my predictions for all this weekend’s Premier League matches below and get involved - but keep it real!
SO to Dubai for Vinnie’s Three Off The Tee this week with the DP World Championship taking place at the glorious Jumeirah Golf Estates.
A shootout in the desert for a pot of gold - and some! - it’s the conclusion of the Race to Dubai, so expect the players to bring their A-games to the table with something like £7m up for grabs.
We’ve been with Tommy Fleetwood for much of the season and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him walk off with the loot - but I think this might be Tyrell Hatton’s time to cement his position as one of the best players in the world right now.
Tyrell has had a fine season, looks right at ease now, and for me is the one to beat. Hatton to land a knockout blow has a good ring to it!
Andy Sullivan and Rasmus Hojgaard have also had pretty decent seasons - both winning on the European Tour. They look each-ways plays.
FINALLY, I’ll be tuning in to see Anthony Joshua’s return to the boxing ring this weekend.
He’s up against Kubrat Pulev, a dangerous opponent but one which Watford boy AJ can wear down and stop in rounds eight or nine.
Then we can think about Fury v Joshua in 2021. Let’s get it on boys!
Enjoy the rest of the week Easyodds people - and stay safe.
