William Hill Sports Betting Guide – 10th October 2017

NFL – Vikings at Bears

10 OCT, 10:30 AEST
Vikings $1.59, Bears $2.40
The Bears are coming off a 35-14 loss in Green Bay and they now turn to Matt Trubisky for his debut. They’ve been decent at home this season as they knocked off the Steelers and came within 6 points of the Falcons. They also beat the Vikings in the last matchup at home, 20-10. They’re 6-1 against the Vikings at home since 2010, but the Vikings are 4-1 overall since 2014. The Vikings lost by 7 against the Lions in a low scoring contest last week. But they have struggled on the road with a 3-6 ATS record since last season. They also lost by 17 in their last road game against the Steelers.

In the end, the Bears are 6-1 ATS at home and they’ll be keen to respond from last week’s poor performance. They’re also coming off a Friday game and will be fresh for a home game against a divisional rival. So we’re taking the Bears +3.

In terms of points, the under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings between the sides. It’s also gone under the total in 4 of the last 5 games in Chicago against the Vikings. The Vikings scored just 7 points last week and 9 in their last road game. So we would back the under total.
Best bet: Bears +3 (2.00)

Value bet: Under 39.5 points ($1.91)

MLB – Nationals at Cubs

10 OCT, 6:05 AEST
Nationals $1.80, Cubs $2.05
The series at tied at 1-1 so game 3 is crucial for both sides. It will mainly come down to the pitching matchup and it should be a beauty. Max Scherzer of the Nationals will take on Jose Quintana from the Cubs. Scherzer has won his last 2 starts against the Cubs and the Nationals won 6-1 in his only start against them this year. He has been dominant on the road this season with a 1.82 ERA and 10 wins from 12 decisions. The Nationals are also 3-0 in his last 3 starts on the road. While for the Cubs, they’re 10-4 in Quintana’s 14 starts as a Cub and 6-0 overall. They’re also 6-0 in his last 6 starts at home. But he does have trouble with runs conceded at home, having allowed 12 runs in his last 4 home starts. The Nationals went 2-1 against the Cubs in the last series at Wrigley Field and they’re coming off a 6-3 victory in game 2. They also won 9-4 in the last game in Chicago and based on Scherzer’s road form, we’re backing the Nationals in game 3.
Best bet: Nationals WIN ($1.80)

MLB – Dodgers at Diamondbacks

10 OCT, 12:05 AEST
Dodgers $1.83, Diamondbacks $2.00
The Dodgers have won the first two of the series and will need to get past Zach Greinke for a chance at the sweep. They should have a good chance after he pitched just 3.2 innings in the wildcard game against the Rockies. He’s also earned a win in just 1 of his last 5 starts against the Dodgers. The D-Backs are 2-0 against the Dodgers when he starts but as they found out in game 2, the playoffs are a different ballgame. The Dodgers are 5-3 in Yu Darvish’s 8 starts as a Dodger. He faced the D-Backs in Arizona and the Dodgers won 8-6 in his road start against them. So runs should be on the cards in game 3. The over total is 2-0 in this series and the D-Backs will be desperate for a win. They’ve scored 10 total runs in two games and should be able to get 3+ against Darvish. The total reached 19 runs in Greinke’s last appearance and the Dodgers have scored 17 total runs in this series. So we’re taking the over total.
Best bet: Over 9 runs ($1.87)
