Weekend Sports Betting Guide – 8/9 June 2018

MLB – Friday

Seattle Mariners at Tampa Bay Rays

08 Jun, 09:10am
Odds: Tampa Bay Rays $2.02, Seattle Mariners $1.83
The Mariners and Rays face off once again, this time in Tampa. They met just last week and the Mariners swept them in 3 games. However, all 3 games were close and low scoring. So the Mariners will just start as the favourite. They will send Mike Leake to the mound and he’ll aim for win number 6. He faced the Rays on that road-trip and allowed 2 home runs in 7 innings. But the Mariners held on for a 4-3 win. They’ve won 5 straight games in his starts but he does struggle to keep runs off the board. In away starts, he has an ERA of 5.46 and team’s are batting .295 against him. The Rays are having their bullpen day and reliever Ryne Stanek will make his 3rd start of the season. His only start of the season came against the Orioles and he pitched just 1.2 innings. The Rays went on the win 5-1 as Banda pitched well in the middle innings. However, it’s hard to see the Rays bullpen having success against the Mariners, especially after just sweeping them last week. The Rays also come into this clash with 5 straight losses and the Nationals thrashed them 11-2 in their latest. So I’ll be getting on the Mariners.
Best bet: Mariners WIN $1.83

Houston Astros at Texas Rangers

08 Jun, 10:05am
Odds: Texas Rangers $2.60, Houston Astros $1.51
The AL West rivalry between the Astros and Rangers continues this Friday with game 1 of this series in Texas. The two sides met on Opening Day at this venue and the Astros won the series 3-1. They outscored them 17-5 in the last 2 games as well. In this matchup, they have a key advantage on the mound. The right handed Gerrit Cole will get the ball for the Astros and he’s having a fine season. He holds a 6-1 record and has a low ERA of 2.20. He’s one of the best strikeout pitchers in the Majors and should enjoy the Rangers lineup. On the road, he’s been especially dominant with a 1.76 ERA and a 4-0 record in 6 starts. Earlier this season, he pitched 7 strong innings against the Rangers at this ballpark and he allowed just 2 hits with 11 strikeouts. Meanwhile, Cole Hamels is up for the Rangers. IN 3 straight starts, Hamels has given up multiple home runs so the Astros lineup will fancy their chances of the same. He’s struggled at home with a 4.66 ERA and has recorded a 1-4 win-loss slate. So it’s hard to see the Rangers getting within 2 runs as the pitching matchup is well in the Astros favour. They’ve also beaten the handicap in 3 of 4 wins at this venue this season.
Best bet: Astros -1.5 $1.90

NHL – Playoffs

Washington Capitals at Vegas Golden Knights

08 Jun, 10:05am
Odds: Vegas Golden Knights $1.69, Washington Capitals $2.22
The Stanley Cup Finals could be over if the Capitals win this game on the road. They’ve taken a commanding 3-1 lead in the series and Vegas will need to find some form at home. They’ve struggled to find the back of the net since game 1. In those 3 losses, they’re averaging under 2 goals per game, so they will definitely need to find more avenues to goal. Meanwhile, the Capitals are looking unstoppable at the moment. They thrashed Vegas 6-2 in game 4, which was setup by a 3 goal first period. Alexander Ovechkin has been a beast in this series as he looks to end a 44 year drought for the Capitals. He’s on a five game point streak and is currently in the midst of one of the most dominant playoff runs in history. But the home side should be desperate to keep this series alive. So in the end, the over total goals is looking good. Game 1 at this venue saw 10 total goals and the two sides combined for 8 goals in the latest. The Golden Knights are 11-8 against the over when they travel back home. At this venue and with these two sides in action, the average total goals is 6. So I really like the overs here.
Best bet: Over 5.5 goals $1.91

Rugby Union

Australia vs Ireland

09 Jun, 8:10pm
Odds: Australia $2.10, Ireland $1.74
The Wallabies are the underdogs when they take on Ireland this week at Suncorp Stadium. The Irish are coming into this clash with 12 straight wins but haven’t won a game in Australia against the Wallabies since 1979. They last met in Australia in 2010 and the Aussies won 22-15, which was also at this venue. Ireland have won 3 of the last 4 games with the last 3 being played in Dublin. However, I can see value in the Wallabies here. A few close losses over in Ireland will give them confidence of upcoming the Irish on their home turf. They also beat the All-Blacks last year at this venue by 5 points. So get on the Wallabies for the value bet!
Best bet: Australia WIN $2.10

Tennis – French Open

Sloane Stephens at Madison Keys

08 Jun, 1am
Odds: Madison Keys $2.50, Sloane Stephens $1.53
It’s an All-American matchup as Sloane Stephens and Madison Keys aim for a place in the French Open final. Stephens is the heavy favourite in the betting as she’s 2-0 against Keys. Last year at the US Open, Stephens comfortably outplayed her in a 2 set victory (6-3,6-0). Previously, they met in Miami and Stephens again won in straight sets. So they haven’t met on clay but Stephens is looking the better player at the moment. During this French Open campaign, she has dropped just 1 set and has basically cruised through the tournament. She beat Kasatkina 6-3, 6-1 in her latest and easily beat Kontaveit 6-2, 6-0. So her last 2 matches have gone 24-6 in Stephens’ favour. Keys has had a tougher time, especially in the Quarters. She won through in 3 sets, 7-6 and 6-4. So she’s probably going to struggle here against the refreshed Stephens. In the end, Stephens record against her is hard to back against. She’s 5-1 ATS at this Grand Slam after a win and 5-2 when she’s the favourite in the betting.
Best bet: Stephens Handicap -3.5 $2
