What a day of sport is taking place on Saturday 1st June.
The Epsom Derby heads the horse racing action, it’s the Champions League final between Tottenham and Liverpool, rugby union’s Premiership final where Saracens face the Exeter Chiefs, the continuation of the French Open from Roland Garros, day three of the ICC Cricket World Cup and Anthony Joshua’s US boxing debut against Andy Ruiz.
And our Super Odds are combining three of these events, doubling the odds on a specific treble from 3/1 to 6/1.
The treble in question is that Aidan O’Brien trains the winner of the Epsom Derby, both teams score in 90 minutes in the Champions League final and Joshua successfully defends his heavyweight belts with a victory between rounds 1-6.
Below is why we think each of these individual outcomes will come in.
Not only has O’Brien been responsible for four of the last seven Derby winners, but he’s also saddling seven of this year’s 13 entrants.
This includes Epsom Derby betting favourite Sir Dragonet, while both Broome and Anthony Van Dyck are also prominent in the market. Circus Maximus is another and has been well backed in the build up to the race.
In terms of which O’Brien horse may triumph, Broome is fancied to get the better of Sir Dragonet. More can be read on why here
Champions League final
Clean sheets have proved especially rare in the more recent Champions League finals. In fact, the most recent final in which either team failed to score was back in 2010, when Jose Mourinho’s Inter Milan beat Bayern Munich 2-0.
The chances of this becoming nine in Madrid are enhanced by the fact that Liverpool and Tottenham have already squared of twice this season in Premier League action, with the Reds prevailing 2-1 in both.
Joshua vs Ruiz
AJ has won all 22 of his professional bouts to date, with 16 of these victories coming inside the opening six rounds.
He’s expected to make relatively light work of Ruiz at Madison Square Garden, on the basis that the challenger was a late replacement for Jarrell Miller following a failed drugs test.
Read here to see the threat that Ruiz poses to Joshua and how the champion should have the tools to deal with any danger comfortably.
