Snooker: Allen looking to defend title on home soil

The latest installment in the 2022-23 snooker season comes from the Waterfront Hall in Belfast for the Northern Ireland Open.

Last year, Mark Allen took home the £70,000 prize pot after he narrowly defeated John Higgins 9-8 in a tense and thrilling final.

Allen, priced at 14/1 to win outright, comes into the tournament in good form and he was runner-up in the British Open only a couple of weeks ago losing out to Ryan Day.

Judd Trump won the tournament in each of the three years prior to Allen's triumph and will be one to watch at 13/2 as will world number one Ronnie O'Sullivan at 5/1 - The Rocket is looking to win the tournament for the first time.

OddsBrighton 2/5, Draw 15/4, Nottingham Forest 6/1

Saturday was another disappointing day at the office for Nottingham Forest as they went down 1-0 to fellow strugglers Wolves.

The crucial goal came via a contentious penalty which VAR took a long time to review - Harry Toffolo was guilty of handling the ball inside the area following a shot.

The loss, coupled with Leicester's point against Crystal Palace, means Forest are back at the bottom of the table and next they face a tough trip to Brighton.

However, they can take hope from the fact that the Seagulls have lost each of their last two without scoring.

OddsManchester United 5/4, draw 12/5, Tottenham 21/10

The biggest game this midweek comes from Old Trafford where Manchester United play host to Tottenham with Antonio Conte's side looking very strong for a top-four tilt.

Spurs are becoming ruthlessly efficient and that was evident in their 2-0 victory against Everton on Saturday.

Harry Kane grabbed yet another goal while Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg added the gloss at the end.

They have happy recent memories at Old Trafford with a 3-0 and 6-1 win there in the last four years and they can be backed at 21/10 to do the same with United 6/5 and a draw is 5/2.

Football: Gunners aiming to maintain fine form

Arsenal play their rearranged Europa League game at home to Dutch outfit PSV Eindhoven on Thursday with Mikel Arteta's men aiming to seal their place in the knockout stages.

They edged past Norwegian side Bodo/Glimt last Thursday with the Gunners showing they can win when not at their best.

Arsenal can be backed to win Thursday's contest at 1/2 with PSV 5/1, and a draw is 10/3.

Golf: Fifth PGA Tour event of the year in South Carolina

The PGA Tour returns to the United States next week following the Zozo Championship in Japan.

Keegan Bradley won his first event in four years with a narrow one-shot win over compatriots Rickie Fowler and Andrew Putnam.

He will be hoping to make it back-to-back wins while defending CJ Cup champion Rory McIlroy will also hope to be in the running as he beat fellow major champion Collin Morikawa by one stroke last year.

Friday 21st October

This season has been tough so far for London Irish who have lost three of their four matches this season, with only Bath below them in the Gallagher Premiership.

Things will not get much easier on Friday as they prepare to welcome Gloucester, whose record is the opposite - they have won three and only lost one in the Premiership so far.

Saturday 22nd October

Rugby League: England seek to make it two from two

England began their home World Cup in sensational style in Newcastle, battering Samoa 60-6 in a match that was deemed a potential banana skin pre-tournament.

Shaun Wane's men ran in 10 tries with Dom Young and Elliott Whitehead grabbing a brace each.

England are seeking to win the tournament for the first time and have laid down a big marker. France will be their next opponents and they will be expected to put up more resistance with their squad containing Super League stars such as Fouad Yaha and Morgan Escare.

Cricket: England get T20 World Cup campaign underway

England won the last ODI World Cup in 2019 and now they will seek to add the T20 tournament to their list of achievements.

Their form has picked up as they prepare for the comepetition, winning a seven-match series against Pakistan 4-3 before edging out Australia by eight runs on two occasions to win 2-0.

Expectations have certainly been raised and they will be expected to have too much in the locker against Afghanistan. England are 1/5 to win with Afghanistan 7/2.

Formula One: Champion Verstappen hoping for back-to-back US wins

Max Verstappen won his second title in bizarre circumstances at the Japanese Grand Prix earlier this month, following a soaking wet race in Suzuka.

A penalty picked up by Charles Leclerc means that the Dutchman's lead at the top is now unassailable and he can enjoy himself at the remaining races.

It has been an utterly dominant season from the Red Bull driver and now, his aim is to break the record for number of race wins in a single season - currently standing at 13 with Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel both achieving the feat.

Verstappen is on 12 and has four more opportunities to win - he won the US Grand Prix in Austin last year and is 4/9 to collect another win and equal the record.
