Dec 19: Rugby & Other Sports Tips

MRF_SportsTips

GLASGOW WARRIORS are wary of a backlash today as they face a European Champions Cup rematch with the Scarlets side they tonked 43-6 on home soil last weekend.

Scarlets welcome back former Warriors winger DTH van der Merwe and make nine changes in total as they try to turn the tables on Gregor Townsend’s men.

Glasgow are 6-11 at marathonbet to make it back-to-back wins over the Welsh outift who are chalked up at 21-10 by bet365 while the draw is 28-1 at Skybet.

The day’s other Euro fixutres include Pool 1 leaders Saracens at home to bottom club Oyonnax and a crunch clash between the top two in Pool 5 as Bath host Wasps.

Elsewhere, Phil Taylor begins his bid for a 17th world title in today’s darts drama from the Ally Pally and there’s also boxing, Test cricket and NBA action worth a punt.

Good luck with your bets and let’s hear your sporting tips and chat here and on the forums.

    About time someone added some rugby tips to this site I feel. Been my most profitable area for a long time.

    Northampton v Racing 92 (745)

    These two clash after meeting last week in France, where Racing ran out comfortable 33-3 winners. Racing have name an unchanged team filled with stars such as Dan Carter, Juan Imhoff, Joe Rokocoko and Chris Masoe. Northampton have made a number of changes with Myler starting at 10, Lawes moving to the second row to partner Matfield and Pisi joining Burrell in the centres.

    This is an improve Northampton side who simply must win this game, and with Myler in have shown that they will be trying to win the battle for territory.

    However, I believe they will come up short. Myler is no match for Carter, and Northampton simply will not be able to cope once again with the power that Racing have upfront. I am usually very wary of betting on French teams away in Europe, particularly against teams of the Saints quality. Given how Racing hammered them last week, both on the scoreboard and on the pitch, and are unbeaten in 4 on their travel in Europe ( Including a 32-8 win at Northampton last year) I cannot see past the tremendous value that Racing represent.

    My bets

    Racing +2 @ 1.91 (Boyle sports) – 3 points
    Racing to win @2.2 – 2 points

    —————

    One winner and one loser as a tight game finished 9-9. small profit of 0.73 units. Will post tips for tomorrow in the morning but not too much value from first glance

    Points staked: 5
    P/L: + 0.73

    Klay Thompson (Warriors) Over 19.5 Points @ 5/6 @ Paddy Power – 2.4 points **WIN**

    DeMarcus Cousins Over 27.5 Points + Rebounds @ 5/6 @ Paddy Power – 4.8 points **WIN**

    Been having some mild success with some early morning spreads in the Aussie and PBL leagues so here goes a double:

    Rain or Shine vs. NLEX Warriors

    NLEX have a pretty decent away form in the league and even though Rain or Shine are second past meetings have been close. Losing by four, five and two I would expect them to cover + 11.5.

    Townsville Crocs vs. Perth Wildcats

    Perth are top of the table in good winning form both home and away. Townsville aren’t doing too badly themselves with 2 wins from their last 5 but those wins came against lower league opposition. Recent meeting had Perth winning by 8 so would expect them to cover -1.

    NLEX Warriors +11.5
    Perth Wildcats -1

    Just over evens @ bet365

    What a day yesterday….my Euro Bball selections returned a nice little profit which was then out matched by some top NBA picks.
    Followed Thompson and Cousins props (Jay), thanks to nick for highlighting this for us all.
    Was also on Spurs spread (Huggy), and 4 from 5 winners from in-form Oriaz.
    Woke up to a healthy 16 point profit to add to yesterday’s winnings. Thanks lads, absolutely smashed it 😀

    MZT Skopje @ Metalac

    Don’t understand these odds….I would have had Skopje as slight favourites here.
    Metalac have struggled recently, lost four of their last five encounters. Also, Metalac have been troubled with injuries and will have a few key players out for this game. The reverse fixture was a big win for Skopje 93-67.

    MZT Skopje (Money Line) @ 31/20 Sportingbet – 2pts staked.

    Anyone know on darts if Bet365 for some reason include a 177 as a 180. Yesterday I was on @tungsten bet and it showed it as a loss when Eidams had only 1 180 and 1 177. It would have lost anyway as he went on to have 3 180’s but it definitely showed it as a loss before.

    Tried asking one of the Drongos on chat at 365 but they were about as much help as a chocolate teapot as always just kept telling me when he got the 180’s which I wasn;t actually disputing

  12. Profile photo of jacksonator
    jacksonator 12 months ago

    Never thought Eidams would win but he just started playing so well, MVG didn’t really play badly just the other guy was bang on for 2 and a half sets. You could almost tell that when it went to sudden death he started thinking about it and the nerves kicked in. You can tell how raw he is with his finishing – one of the attempts at double top was in the middle of the numbers!! Whatever he said after MVG was definitely looking very nervy at one point!

    World Championship Darts afternoon session

    Double:

    Beaton vs Kokiri, highest checkout Beaton
    White vs Van den Bergh, over 3.5 sets

    11/8 Bet365

    Kokiri is a bit of a unknown quantity outside of Oceana. His career earnings are low but he has won the Oceanic Masters to his credit. Beaton of course is a former lakeside champion. Nothing really seems appealing enough to take as a single but I think Beaton will get the highest checkout by either dominating the match and not letting Kokiri have many shots on a double or by taking out a Shanghai or similar ton plus.

    White is in 9th possition in the PDC order of merit and uses his power scoring frequently to great effect. His opponent Van den Bergh is a young, fearless type player who finds the 20 and 19 beds without too many problems. I think Van den Bergh is certainly good enough to take one set of White here.

    Good luck all

    Billy Joe Saunders to win via decision, v Andy Lee , BOXING 6/4 ,

    Two scenarios for this fight. Either Lee KO or Saunders by points , so no real point putting it on the outright win, BJS the much better boxer but lee does have the power, so should be a good fight, as long as there no accidental headbutts I can’t see lee getting knocked out, fancy Saunders to outbox him , when this fight was first made Saunders decision the odds were 11/4 so the price has come way in

    • Profile photo of mulac

      agreed. it’s an extremely difficult pick though.

      im SLIGHTLY more confident about bryant jennings @ 7/5
      Ortiz has faced absolutely nobody of note (his best win is NC) against a cruiserweight…he was then busted for steroids.
      im surprised Jennings is a underdog here, he is the proven fighter at this level.

      Junior dos santos KO @4/9 has to be one oft he acca as well, overeem has a glass chin.

    We have the luxury of an NFL game tonight which sees the New York Jets head to Jerry World to face the Dallas Cowboys. Money has been coming for Dallas but I’ve seen enough of them with Matt Cassell in charge to think the Jets should win this. The Cowboys aren’t necessarily out of the playoff picture, and with a record of 4-9 it shows just how bad the NFC East is this season, being dubbed the NFC least by many. Last week my Green Bay Packers ran the ball down Dallas throat for the majority of the game and pulled off the victory with over 230 team rushing yards. Eddie Lacy had 24 carries for 124 yards on the ground. The Jets lead rusher is Chris Ivory who is very much a replica of Lacy. A powerful downhill runner who is tough to bring down. Last week Ivory ran for 101 yards on the ground on 22 carries against a Titans defense who had been fairly stingy on rushing yards this season, but the effects of a grueling NFL season will tend to take it out of players as the season wears on. If the Jets can replicate the Packers style last week I think Ivory could achieve this total with a fair amount of ease, but it won’t be easy in Dallas’ home.

    Chris Ivory (New York Jets) Over 72.5 Rushing Yards @ 1.85 @ Bwin – 2 points

    SPURS -7.5 WAS A 5 IN A ROW MAIN BET ( SCRAPED HOME FROM THE FREE THROW LINE )

    and plenty of free money with the 2 prop gifts which were doled out , added to my free Hunter money , was a pretty good day , 7 days in the black leading up 2 christmas.

    small card tonight , but plenty of inform guys on here to still pull a winner , ORIAZ smashing it lately , leaning towards prop bets against the lakers where i think the thunder will cover 16 , westbrook 25.5 , ibaka 12.5
    also think memphis will cover the -1 vs the pacers and over the 201.5

      Some insight about the Clippers/Rockets game, the line is small (it opened at Clippers +1 and is now at Clippers -1) that does mean the money has been coming in for the Clippers after their performance against the Spurs and like I’ve stated above I think they’ll win BUT Rockets haven’t played since thursday so will have had plenty of time to reste and prepare the game.

      I like Knicks to cover mainly because the Bulls just played a very long game (4 overtimes) and have to travel to New York.
      Gasol is also rested and didn’t travel to New York (still checking for official confirmation).

    World Championship darts evening session

    Singles:

    Whitlock vs Evans, Whitlock most 180’s 4/5

    Whitlock vs Evans, Whitlock over 4.5 180’s 10/11

    Ryder vs Van der Voort, Ryder over 1.5 180’s 8/11

    Whitlock heads into the Worlds in good form having disposed of Peter Wright at the Players Championship with a 10-9 victory. One of his strengths has always been his maximum hitting and he should win the 180 contest against Rapid Ricky Evans. Evans, the former World youth finalist, can be his own worst enemy at times with regards to maximum scoring because he dispatches his darts so quickly that the crucial remaining dart either drops low or goes high.

    Ryder is a slow methodical type of thrower but his technique still gets him his fair share of 140’s and to a lesser extent 180’s. He should be able to cover his 180 line through the duration of the match.

    Prices with Bet365

    Good luck all
