Welcome to the sports betting tips for March 12th, 2015.

We will continue Cheltenham of course and hope to have more luck – yesterday was a win and a couple of places, and we will of course have the golf!

Last weeks golf we had a good week verging on great. We had Bubba Watson 16/1 who came in 3rd for the cash, and Azahara Munoz who was 30/1 and also came Top 5 for a cash. There was a lot of “Oh man so close” moments too with the likes of Weekly, Watson(who should have came 2nd) and Jaco.

But either way still a profitable week.

Let’s get to the tips:

Valspar Championship 2015 Betting Tips:

Only doing the PGA this week.

First up we have Luke Donald 25/1. Donald loves this course and is coming into it on great form. Surprisingly he is only the 7th favourite and we’re all ove rthat.

We also recommend a small bet – say a quarter of a unit on John Senden. 66/1 he probably won’t do anything – but his course form, and the fact that he has won here previously – makes it worth the bet.

Our last bet of the week is Jim Furyk 18/1. Similar to Donald he has good form here and also is coming in on good form.

All 3 bets are of course E/W.

Cheltenham Day 3 Betting Tips:

1:30 – Vautour. It’s not the most imaginative of selections, but last year’s Supreme Novices’ hurdle winner is looking in fantastic form, and he’s from the Walsh/Mullins combination that can seemingly do no wrong this week. Ptit Zigg could be the danger, but it’s all about the classy Vautour. Make sure you get on early, as the current 2/1 is going to vanish before the off.

2:05 – Brother Brian. A tough, tough race, and you could put a pin in the form guide and pick the winner almost as easily. However, Brother Brian has a nice line of form through Rock on Ruby, and he gets the tentative nod here. It’s a bookies’ benefit this race, so look for a double-figure winner here, as seems to be the tradition.

2:40 – Don Cossack. Some hot form in Ireland, and we know that Bryan Cooper is riding well this week. 44 length winner over Texas Jack last time out in Ireland, with Texas Jack going on to chase Champion Chase contenders Champagne Fever home in his last run, so the form is solid. A nice, open contest, but we’re going with the horse and jockey in form. It’ll be a tough test, and Don Cossack should be the second Don to get his head in front this week.

3:20 – Whisper. Just the one run under Whisper’s belt this year and it was over fences. In our big write-up for the race, we said that the majority of runners had a lot of questions to answer. Well, not Whisper. He’s prepped nicely, has great form in the bag, and it going to put up a huge showing and what is going to look a great price.

4:00 – Rawnaq. Yes, a bit price, but he could be seriously well-in on the handicap here, having only had three runs over fences and winning two of them. It’s a big field, again, and preferences tends to lead us towards the bottom of the handicap, which is where you will find Rawnaq. If he’s well in and the handicapper has missed a step, he could win this at a canter. But, in all honesty, there could be several horses like that in the field. We just like Rawnaq’s big price.

4:40 – The Package. another bookies’ benefit here, and it’s hard to find the winner, but we like The Package just on previous Cheltenham form. Not much to say about this race, as there could be multiple winners, but again we’ll go for one with course form and that is likely to stay the distance.
