Devils paid out one of the biggest sports wins i have ever had. First i took them BIG to win series and after first loss i doubled that up. To yesterdays match i had ml and pl.
Back to cycling, i've been doing pretty well with this years giro but managed to post losing picks here. Hope it changes today. Basso is still 4 to 1 to win whole Giro so i'm taking him to win today... he didn't look that bad yesterday. Stage 20 is killer with insane finish: last 20km ascends over 1400 meters. That averages over 7% steep hill...
Will Ivan Basso Win Stage 20? YES +780 x 2u
i think he played safe yesterday and will dominate today
Joaquin Rodriguez +100 vs Ryder Hesjedal
Domenico Pozzovivo vs Ivan Basso +108
John Gadret vs Mikel Nieve -128 x 2

Just a couple more metres, a push left to the top.
His heart wants to reach it, his legs want to stop.
Every pedal a struggle, every meter a fight.
The leaders he followed, now long out of sight.
The rider knows now, as he suspected before
it’s the hardest stage ever, in any grand tour.
But the realization, that wont be good for morale
Is that he’s just crossing over, the Passo del Tonale.
Twenty k down, 200 to go.
3000m climbing, before the Passo Stelvio.
Four difficult hills, and the Mortirolo as well
Ladies and gentlemen,
