Weekend Sports Betting Guide – 20/21 July 2018

Cricket – Test Match

Sri Lanka vs South Africa

20 Jul, 2:30pm
Odds: Sri Lanka $2.10, South Africa $2.75
Sri Lanka and South Africa resume their Test series with the home side coming off a stunning win. They absolutely dominated South Africa in the first test and they’ll be warm favourites in the second. To start off with, Karunaratne played a single hand in the first innings, finishing 158 not out in their total of 287. Rabada was damaging as always taking 4 wickets. Then the Sri Lanka bowlers went to work. They had South Africa in a spin at 3-13 and the away side could only manage 126. With a big lead, Sri Lanka were bowled out for 190 and set South Africa the task of around 350 to win. Which they came nowhere near. Sri Lanka bowled them out for just 73 with Perera taking 6 for 32. So Sri Lanka showed South Africa’s weakness to spin and it’s hard to see that changing in a short timeframe. Many team’s have struggled in Sri Lanka lately and that should continue. The home side only needs a draw to take this series but they have the momentum which should see them take the second test. Their spin bowling department has the wood over the South African batting lineup. So get on Sri Lanka to straight up win this.
Best bet: Sri Lanka $2.10 WIN

MLB – Friday

Cardinals at Cubs

20 Jul, 9:05am
Odds: Cubs $1.63, Cardinals $2.30
On Friday, the Cubs are playing host to their division foe the Cardinals at Wrigley Field. Before the All-Star break, the Cubs travelled to the West coast and won 3 of 5 games. Their record in their last 10 is 7-3 and they’ve won 4 of their last 5 at home. The Cardinals beat the Reds 6-4 at home to halt a 3 game losing streak. They’ve been inconsistent lately with a 5-5 record in their last 10 and start as the underdog on the road against the Cubs. In the head to head, the Cardinals lead 4-3 but in the two games at Wrigley Field, they’re tied 1-1. Overall since last season, the Cubs are 9-2 when they play the Cardinals here. On the mound, the Cubs give the ball to Kyle Hendricks. He has a ERA of 3.92 in season 2018 and a 6-8 win-loss record. While his win-loss record is poor, the Cubs haven’t given him much run support. In home games, he holds a 3.18 ERA and team’s are batting just .207 against him. Meanwhile, the Cardinals Carlos Martinez (6-5, 3.08 ERA) toes the rubber. His last outing against the Cubs was poor as he allowed 6 walks in a 6-3 loss. The Cardinals also lost 9-1 in his previous start as he gave up a home run and 3 runs over 5 innings. So in the end, I can’t see the Cubs dropping this game at their home ballpark as they look to continue their lead atop the NL Central division.
Best bet: Cubs WIN $1.63

Rugby Union – Quarter Finals Preview

Hurricanes vs Chiefs

20 Jul, 5:35pm
Odds: Hurricanes $1.45, Chiefs $2.75
The Super Rugby finals begin with a rivalry matchup between the Hurricanes and Chiefs at Westpac Stadium. The two sides met last week with the Chiefs getting over them 28-24. So I’m expecting a similar result. However, the Hurricanes take favouritism in the betting. This is mainly due to their dominant home record as they’re yet to lose in 8 home games this season. They’ve scored 34 points per game and only concede 21 on average when playing at home. The last meeting between the two sides at this venue was also a Hurricanes victory, 25-13. While the Hurricanes should win, the Chiefs won’t be a pushover. They’re coming into the finals with 3 straight wins and held a 5-3 record on the road in 2018. In away games, they rank 2nd in Super Rugby for points scored and also have a similar defensive record compared to the Hurricanes. So after they beat them just last week, I think the Chiefs are great value at the line as they could spring an upset. The line is a safer bet as this matchup should comedown to the last few minutes of play with a close margin.
Best bet: Chiefs +5.5 $1.90


Waratahs vs Highlanders

21 Jul, 8:05pm
Odds: Waratahs $2.22, Highlanders $1.67
The Waratahs are back in the finals and they’ll host the Highlanders in what should be an entertaining clash. The home side finished the regular season with a 9-6 record and were ranked 1st overall for points scored. They come into this final having scored 30+ in 4 straight games and they’ll look to continue their scoring power against the Highlanders. The last meeting at this venue was a crushing win for NSW as they dominated in a 41-12 scoreline. Which should be an issue again this time. The Highlanders defence hasn’t been great this season. They conceded 37 to the Rebels at home last week and 45 points in back to back road losses against New Zealand sides. They also recorded a poor 3-5 away record and also found it hard to put points on the board. They rank almost last in Super Rugby for points scored in away games having scored just 20 points per game. So in the end, the Waratahs are great value in this matchup. They should be motivated in front of their home fans and I’m backing them to win this.
Best bet: Waratahs WIN $2.22

Tennis – WTA Swiss Open

Sam Stosur vs Patty Schnyder

20 Jul, 1:30am
Odds: Stosur $1.33, Schnyder $3.30
Sam Stosur takes on Patty Schnyder in the WTA Gstaad on Friday morning. The Aussie is the warm favourite in the betting and she comes off a 6-3, 6-2 win as the 5th seed. However, Schnyder will be playing hard in her home country and will have the fans on her side at the Swiss Open. The pair haven’t played against each other for a long time with Stosur taking the last matchup in 2011 via 2 straight sets. The first meeting was all the way back in 2005 on the Gold Coast and shows how long these two Ladies have been on the tour for. Schnyder had to battle in her last match with a 3 set win. So I believe that Stosur will win this matchup with her power and take it in straight sets, which should be the best value bet.
