Dec 24-26: Cricket & Other Sports Tips

MRF_SportsTips

IT’S a quiet couple of days before the sporting action returns with a bang on Boxing Day with cricket leading the way.

England begin the first Test against South Africa in Durban and the tourists are sweating on the availability of leading wicket taker James Anderson who has a calf injury.

Anderson will be given every chance to prove his fitness ahead of the four-match series against the world’s top-ranked side.

For series victory South Africa are 8-11 favourites (Paddy Power), with England chalked up at 3-1 by Boylesports and the draw paying 9-2 at bet365.

You can get 26-11 at Marathonbet for England to start with a win while a home victory in the opener pays 11-8 at skybet and the draw is a 5-2 shot at StanJames.

The World Darts Championship resumes on Boxing Day after a two-day break and defending champ Gary Anderson tops the bill, so don’t forget to check out Lockuptipster’s unmissable picks.

There’s also a Christmas Eve match in the NFL and NBA action from Christmas Day onwards for those who love their Stateside sport.

Feel free to share your tips and chat and I wish you all a very merry Christmas.

    Lads if you have 5 minutes I really suggest watching this Chris Paul/Aaron Rodgers challenge video. It’s unreal…

    Saw that the other day Jack. Rodgers accuracy is unreal! The balloon!

    Klay Thompson Over 18.5 Points @ 10/11 @ Skybet – 4.4 points **WIN**

    Thomas Sperbeck (Boise State) Over (53.5) Receiving Yards @ 5/6 @ Paddy Power – 2.4 points **WIN**

    Nice Christmas Eve Eve. Hopefully I have a couple of bets for us to wake up to Christmas day as a little pressie from the NFL haha. Not all markets available so will check in after the last minute shop.

      Nice work Jordan. Missed the boat on the Thompson total (increased to 20.5), glad I left it now.

    Forget that they’ve been put up!

    Latavius Murray (Oakland Raiders) Over 75.5 Rushing Yards @ 10/11 @ William Hill – 2.2 points

    Phillip Rivers (San Diego Chargers) Over 1.5 Passing TD’s @ 10/11 @ Betfair – 2.2 points

    Danny Woodhead (San Diego Chargers) Over 60.5 Rush + Receiving Yards @ 5/6 @ Paddy Power – 2.4 points

    Think the Woodhead/Murray TD Double offers value @ 3/1 @ Skybet

    Ho ho hopefully a nice wake up. Good luck gents and have a great Christmas.

    Charlotte Hornets -2 @ 1.90 – *LOSE*

    Utah Jazz + 14 @ 1.90 – *LOSE*

    SA Spurs @ Minnesota Timberwolves Over 195 @ 1.90 – *LOSE*

    During some down time at work I put in some research for a player prop bet, something a little different…

    Sac Kings
    DeMarcus Cousins Under 36.5 (Pts, Ast & Reb) – *WON*
    DeMarcus Cousins Under 25.5 Pts – *LOSE*
    Rajon Rondo Over 24 (Pts & Ast) *WON*

    Hornets
    Jeremy Lin Under 15 Points -*WON*

    Magic
    Nikola Vucevic Over 25.5 (Pts & Reb) – *WON*
    Viktor Oladipo Under 14.5 Points – *WON*

    Rockets
    James Harden Under 28.5 Points -*LOSE*

    Looks like I’ll be putting more prop bets on in the future, 5-2 on the night and finished in profit.

      Hey bud, was on one of your props yesterday (Cousins Under 25.5 points), you’ve put that down as a loss but he scored 25 points and I’ve been paid out. Hope this was just a typo. Cheers Raoul

      • Profile photo of raoul duke
        raoul duke 12 months ago

        Thanks for pointing that out hunter, it should be a winner!

        Under 36.5 (pts, ast & reb) was the loser, because he racked up a massive 16 rebounds…

        So it’s still 5-2 on the night…

        Going to be placing a lot more prop bets going forward.

        • Profile photo of hunter
          hunter 12 months ago

          Either way, fantastic selections. Props can be a great alternative if there’s nothing you like in the game markets. Think you’ll do well from them.

    Thought I’d use this opportunity to say Merry Christmas to everyone in this thread! I’m still a relatively new member but the last few months have been awesome! I made a withdrawal from my Bet365 account this morning that pretty much pays off Christmas 😀

    November was a very strong month for my NBA bets, December has been a little more shaky but thanks to @hunter ‘s Euro Basketball tips I’ve kept in a nice profit overall.

    All the regulars here have been killing it! @jordan @huggybear518 @oriaz and any one I’ve missed, have a fantastic Christmas, lets smash the bookies again in 2016.

    Peace.

        Cheers bud. Was confident the Cavs would limit his threat and force him to pass more, and in turn, assist more. A tad lucky with the assists but he got there.

    Just a a little one for tomorrows game. DeSean Jackson will be back where it all started for him in the NFL when the Washington Redskins travel to the Philadelphia Eagles, where this game will have HUGE playoff implications for the winner. Jackson has been a big threat for Washington since his return with 4 TD’s in their last five games and having receiving totals of 87, 66, 80, 43 and a 153 yard game against Buffalo last week. With Cornerback Byron Maxwell not practising this week and doubtful to play, Jackson shouldn’t have too much trouble down the field where he has grabbed passes for 77, 63 and 56 yard gains in his past five with a reception of 28 yards or more in his last 6 contests. Last season Jackson had over 117 yards in both games against Philly, totaling 243 yards on 9 receptions for a TD. There is rain scheduled so this may be quite risky.

    DeSean Jackson (Washington Redskins) Over 72.5 Receiving Yards @ 1.85 @ Bwin – 2 points

  43. Profile photo of raoul duke
    raoul duke 11 months ago

    Kawhi Leonard Over 28.5 Points + Rebounds @ 5/6 (PP)

    Houston have the highest 3 point attempt’s per game at 31.3, rebounds a’ plenty…. plus Leonard is averaging 22.2 points per game in the last 5.

    A very achievable bet.

    Good luck.

    Cincerely hope I’m wrong this time around but I have been right on the majority of the Packers games this season. Sunday is probably our biggest game of the regular season with the way things have played out, but its also our toughest. Arizona lost Tyrann Mathieu last weekend, and that’ll be a huge loss on the defensive side. Fortunately they have one of the best offense in the league in my opinion and I will be amazed if my Packers who haven’t won convincingly in many of their games this season. We had a 92 yard drive last week in Oakland but only ended the drive with three points. Performances like that won’t get the most important W of the season in Arizona.

    One of the hottest teams in the AFC head to Baltimore for this divisional match up. The Steelers have scored 30 or more in their last six contests and need to win their last two games for a wildcard sport without concern, but can still win their division if the Bengals lose in Denver and depending on what happens next week. Pittsburgh know what they need to do with the Ravens playing for a better draft spot. Baltimore will try to make a game of this as much as they can, but I can’t see the Steelers dropping a L here. Not if Beg Ben and Antonio Brown have anything to say about it.
