Morning all, and good to be aboard!
I’ve been a long time lurker on the page, so its nice to (hopefully) contribute back. I usually enjoy having a punt on the AFL, Premier League and NFL, but given that only one of these is currently available I’ve had to have a gander elsewhere…
To kick this round off, I’ve gone a few of the home favourites in the NBA playoffs:
- Wizards at home to the Cavaliers
- Celtics away at Timberwolves
- Raptors hosting the Suns
- Jazz at home for Spurs
- LA Lakers to beat the Grizzlies
$50 on this 5 leg multi @ $3.90
Into the soccer now…
Juventus have been absolutely flying and a great multi booster this season, although I’m a tad hesitant on them this week. The ladder leaders are paying $1.33 away to cellar-dwellers SPAL, but they will have half an eye on their Champions League first leg final at Lyon mid next week. Good value nonetheless and I’ll back them here.
Wolves $1.45 are hosting a poor Norwich who, while impressing in their loss to Liverpool last week, sit on the bottom of the ladder for a reason.
Man Utd ($1.57) host Watford this weekend, after walking away with an invaluable win at Chelsea last weekend. Hopefully former Watford striker Odion Ighalo gets his first start for United (anytime goalscorer paying $2.00 by the way), and they get the job done. Hard to say which United show up though, as they love to lift for the tough encounters and flop in the winnable games…
And my team, Liverpool, have West Ham coming to Anfield but a win at home is only paying $1.14. I’ll back our defence though, with a win to nil paying $1.91, having kept cleansheets in 10 out of the last 11 games (way to jynx myself!)
I did like Tottenham ($4.50) away to Chelsea, with Jose Mourinho no doubt intending to take some points from Stamford Bridge where he is revered. The double chance (win/draw) is paying about $2.00, but with their Harry Kane replacement Son Heung-Min breaking his arm, Spurs are very light on in the attacking department. Tempted nonetheless, but will steer clear in this multi…
Which makes our second bet the following:
- Man Utd
- Liverpool to win to nil
