Murdoch favourite to add further gold in men’s 100m breaststroke

| 25.07.2014

Seven gold medals are available on Saturday evening in the pool in Glasgow at the Commonwealth Games and Coral has betting available on all seven finals.

Ross Murdoch is one of Scotland’s best chances of a gold on Saturday and he has been installed as the 6-4 favourite in the men’s 100m breaststroke.

England’s Francesca Halsall is 2-1 to upset odds-on favourite Cate Campbell in the women’s 50m freestyle, while in the women’s 200m breaststroke, Sophie Taylor is rated as a 9-1 shot with Coral to beat the warm market leader, Taylor McKeown, who is available at 4-9.

“Ross Murdoch did us a favour when he beat odds-on favourite Michael Jamieson on Thursday, this time around the money has been pouring in for the 20-year to make it double gold at the Games,” said Coral’s John Hill.
