William Hill Sports Betting Tips – 4th January, 2018

EPL – Arsenal vs Chelsea

4 JAN, 06:45am AEDT
Chelsea $2.60, Arsenal $2.75

Arsenal kicked off the new year with a disappointing draw against 2nd last West Brom. Their defence has been questionable over the last 3 games as they’ve allowed 6 goals. They now meet Chelsea at home and they’ll definitely need to show improvement. Chelsea is coming into this clash in red hot-form after thrashing Stoke 5-0. They haven’t conceded a goal in their last four matches either. They’ve now moved into second position on the table and will be hard to beat.

In the head to head, Chelsea lead 8-4-3 since 2010. They met earlier this season and the two sides finished with a 0-0 draw. So this should be another tight contest. While Arsenal has shown poor defence over the last couple of games, they’re a much better side at home with an 8-1-1 record this season. We’ll be looking at the under total goals as Arsenal should be able to keep Chelsea contained at home. So after a 0-0 draw in the last meeting, we’re backing the under total here.

Best bet: Under 2.5 goals ($2.25)

NBA – Boston Celtics vs Cleveland Cavaliers

4 JAN, 12:00pm AEDT
Odds: TBA
The headline matchup of Thursday’s NBA action is of course the Celtics hosting the Cavaliers. Boston ended the year with the best record in the NBA at 30-10. Kyrie Irving has been better than expected and the Celtics never say die attitude means they’re always in the contest. Against the two best Western Conference sides at home in the Warriors and Rockets, they made a comeback when down more than 10+ points. So they’ll hold no fears against the Cavs. But the Cavaliers will be looking to continue their form over the Celtics. They beat them in the first game of the season and have gone 3-0 against them dating back to last season. However, their away form is a concern. They’ve lost four straight on the road, which includes losses against the Kings and Jazz.

Boston has won it’s last three games and their defence will likely contain LeBron James and the Cavs. Irving will enjoy facing his former side and we can see the Celtics winning this contest.
Best bet: Celtics WIN

Big Bash – Hobart Hurricanes vs Adelaide Strikers

4 JAN, 7:10pm AEDT
Strikers $1.67, Hurricanes $2.20
The Strikers are back from the bye and head to Hobart against the Hurricanes on Thursday. After the Hurricanes poor batting display against the Thunder last year, they responded with a victory in the next game against the Thunder on Monday night. Darcy Short was the man of the match with his 97 leading the way for a big score. So they’ll need the same batting output against the Strikers bowling lineup. The likes of Rashid Khan, Billy Stanlake and Ben Laughlin lead a formidable bowling lineup for the Strikers. They also have one of the form batsman in the Big Bash with Alex Carey. Coupled with Travis Head and the late order hitting of Michael Neser, the Strikers are a team to watch in BBL07. In this matchup, the Strikers have the edge in the bowling department. They knocked over the strong Heat batting lineup last game and the Hurricanes do rely on Short to score big, which he’s only managed in one game. The Strikers are also 4-2 against the Hurricanes and we’re backing them to make it 5-2.
Best bet: Strikers WIN ($1.67)
