Weekend Sports Betting Guide – 13/14 April 2018

Commonwealthe Games – Mens Rugby 7s Gold Medal

13 Apr, 21:00
The Rugby 7s tour returns to Australia for the Commonwealth Games this Friday night. It will be played at Robina Stadium and South Africa is the top favourite. But after a series win in the Hong Kong Rugby 7s last weekend, the Fijians will be confident of winning this. They just beat South Africa in the semi-finals 26-24, so it would be great to see them playoff for the Gold Medal. For the home side, Australia is missing their captain after a head injury before the Hong Kong series and it showed. They lost against Spain in the group stages and were easily beaten by Canada. But they did finish off the series with wins over England and Kenya. So they should be at least confident of earning a medal, especially with home ground advantage. Which they showed in the Sydney Rugby 7s a few months ago. They upset the South Africans and will need the same effort in this series. New Zealand is also up there in the betting. But they’ll likely struggle to beat Fiji and South Africa. In Hong Kong, Fiji thrashed them 50-7 and South Africa beat them 29-7. So in the end, the Fijians look like the best value bet at $4. They won the Hong Kong series and winning momentum is the key.
Best bet: Fiji WIN $4

MLB

White Sox at Twins

Apr 13, 10:10am
Odds: TBA
After both sides rallied in their last game, the Twins and White Sox will look to continue their momentum. Of the two sides, the Twins are looking the better team so far. They blew a save against the Astros, but in the end a walk-off home run earned them a series win. Meanwhile, the White Sox finally won at home after 6 attempts, which included 3 straight losses by 1 run. In the head to head between the Twins and White Sox, Minnesota swept them in the last series at this venue. They’ll also have the advantage on the mound with Jose Berrios. He tossed on a 9 inning shutout in his first start of the season but is coming off a rocky start against the Mariners. However, I can see him rebounding against a weaker White Sox batting lineup. They’ll have Lucas Giolito on the hill and he’s given up 8 runs in 11.1 innings so far this season. So after the Twins scored 9 on the Astros, they should enjoy more runs in this contest.
Best bet: Twins WIN

NHL – Playoffs

Maple Leafs at Bruins

Apr 13, 9am
Odds: Bruins $1.65, Maple Leafs $2.30
The race for the Stanley Cup begins for the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs as they face off at TD Garden in game 1 of this series. In the head to head this season, Toronto had the wood over Boston with 3 wins in 4 games. But the last game at this venue was a 4-1 win for the Bruins, so they’ll be confident of opening the series with a another victory. They were especially dominant at TD Garden this season with 28 wins from 41 matches. Meanwhile, the Maple Leafs went 20-16-5 on the road. Overall since 2011, the Bruins are 12-6-2 against the Maple Leafs as well. So on home ice, the Bruins should win this.
Best bet: Bruins $1.65

Rugby Union – Super Rugby

Rebels vs Jaguares

14 Apr, 3:15pm
Odds: Rebels $1.25, Jaguares $4.00
The Rebels return from the bye and will look for win number 5 on the season as they face the Jaguares at AAMI Park. The home side Rebels have been pretty inconsistent of late so they can be hard to predict. Before the bye, the Hurricanes exposed their defence as they won 50-19. But previously at home, the Rebels thrashed the Sharks 46-14. I would say the Jaguares are a similar side to the Sharks so this could be a blowout. However, they did beat the Rebels 32-29 last season, which was apart of a 2 game winning streak in Australia. They are coming off a 40-14 loss to the Crusaders. So these two sides are hard to predict. In the end, I’ll favour the Jaguars to cover the line after their last performance in Australia.
Best bet: Jaguares +11.5 $1.90

Highlanders vs Brumbies

14 Apr, 5:35pm
Odds: Highlanders $1.15, Brumbies $5.50
The Brumbies head across the Tasman for the first time this season as they play the Highlanders in Dunedin. The Highlanders have lost their last 2 matches but have a 3-0 record against the Brumbies in Super Rugby. However, the Brumbies have covered the line in all 3 of those matches. They thrashed the Reds last week and should be confident of covering the 15.5 point line. They have a better defensive record compared to the Highlanders. Whereas the Highlanders are slightly better in attack. So this should be a close contest. The Brumbies are 18-11 against the under total as an away side coming off a win. So their defence should keep them in this match until the end.
Best bet: Brumbies +15.5 $1.90

Waratahs vs Reds

14 Apr, 7:45pm
Odds: Waratahs $1.32, Reds $3.40
This is a huge clash between the Waratahs and Reds, which will be played at the SCG. NSW is coming back from Japan after thrashing the Sunwolves. They’re proving to be one of the best scoring teams in Super Rugby and that should be the difference against the Reds. QLD got smashed in the end against the Brumbies as their usually strong defence got exposed. But they also lack the scoring options, which will hurt them against NSW. The Waratahs are averaging 35 points per match and the Reds score under 20 points per match. NSW has also won the last 7 meetings against QLD. In the last 3 meeting played in NSW, the Waratahs have smashed them by an average of 24 points. So the line of 8.5 points is nice value in what should be another large win.
Best bet: Waratahs -8.5 $1.90

Soccer – EPL

Southhampton vs Chelsea

Apr 14, 9:30pm
Odds: Southhampton $4.25, Chelsea $1.83
The EPL action begins in Southampton as they host Chelsea. In the last 4 meetings, Chelsea has dominated as they’ve outscored them 9 goals to 3. They’re not in great form at the moment, with 3 losses in their last 5 matches. But they have played a few good sides, such as Man City and Man United. Meanwhile, Southhampton lost all 3 matches on the road and were outscored 9-2. They’ve only won 3 matches at home this season in 16 attempts. So it’s hard to see them upsetting Chelsea.
Best bet: Chelsea WIN $1.83
