Betting: Odds for the Irish in action at Day 2 of the World Championships

It was a profitable day yesterday for who filled our boots on the quite frankly ridiculous odds of 4/5 on Michael O’Reilly. We were also dissuaded from placing a treble on the trio of Irish who were in action due to the unwarranted short odds on Dean Walsh (and the victorious Brendan Irvine). and this wariness paid off.

Day 2 sees two Irish in action and we’re afraid to say the betting prospects don’t look too good.

At 1pm Irish time, Sean McComb is up against Mexico’s Lindolfo Delgado (odds – 5/2). The very short odds of 1/4 on Siúcra Sean are probably just about correct – but we wouldn’t be putting our houses on it. Instead, McComb could act as a accumulator-filler for anybody taking a bigger punt.

Then at 6pm Irish Time it is the turn of Wexford welterweight Adam Nolan, and we’re afraid to say that we will be going nowhere near his odds of 10//11. Nolan faces the European champion, Eimantas Stanionis of Lithuania (odds – 4/5), and while the punching policeman can beat anyone on his day, he should still be deemed a bigger underdog with the bookies for this fight.

Good luck!
