You'll find that the banter is mighty on the Paddy Power Blogs!

2017-11-26 15:00:00

Available via the top tab on Paddy Power’s main page, the website’s ‘Blog’ section offers both a range of expert opinions by experienced campaigners and sports-related articles that give the punter something a little different.


Soccer fans and punters are sure to find something that interests them with Paddy Power’s ‘Football News’ section on the blog, with a blend of tips, markets and expert opinion. Former Manchester United, Inter Milan and England midfielder Paul Ince has a regular column, offering his unique and expert insight on current football issues. Tips related to Paddy Power’s Hotshot Jackpot, where customers can win £250,000 for free, can be found as well as football accumulators and betting news.

Horse Racing Columnists

Paddy Power’s blog section offers regular columns by horse racing experts, including former champion jockey Mick Fitzgerald and well-respected equine shrewdy Jason Weaver.

Mick Fitzgerald can be regularly seen on our television screens giving an expert opinion, and on his Paddy Power blog, he gives his biggest fancies on the week’s biggest horse meetings. Readers are sure to get a value bet with Mick, who knows the sport inside out and has a wealth of knowledge at his disposal. Equally knowledgeable about both flat and national hunt racing, Fitzgerald is well worth following.

Jason Weaver is a flat racing expert, who offers his opinion weekly via Paddy Power’s blog on half a dozen races. Like Mick Fitzgerald, Weaver will ensure readers of an excellent insight into the selected races. With big price winners a common feature, it would be unwise not to have a look at his column.

Paddy Power Recruits Nigel Farage

Two men never far from controversy and often splitting popular opinion, the combination of Paddy Power and Nigel Farage seems ridiculously fitting. With political betting becoming more common, particularly with Paddy Power’s range of markets, Nigel Farage will offer his opinion on current events. Given the success of Paddy Power’s US Presidential election campaign, the Brexit fallout and the upcoming French Presidential elections, the recruitment of Farage seems a smart move.

Farage quipped: “So Paddy Power lost $4.5 million (£3.6 million) on Trump’s election last year – another example of EU-based idiocy. As the only British politician with a direct line to the Donald (Trump) – I’m the perfect man to lead this recruitment initiative.”

Paddy Power replied; “I’m sure the irony of Nigel taking a job in the EU isn’t lost on him, but we’re looking forward to channelling his expertise.”

Watch this space as hilarity and endless satire are bound to ensue.

Additional Features

Paddy Power’s blog section has a range of extra articles and side pieces, including a section devoted to their latest and infamous social media posts. No one is safe from Paddy Power’s send-ups and readers can view the latest tweets and Facebook posts, as well as newly released betting markets. The Latest sports news, particularly focused on football and horse racing, is a regular feature. Paddy Power’s blog certainly offers an interesting alternative to most betting sites and is well worth a glance.
