Dec 27: Cricket & Other Sports Tips

MRF_SportsTips_Tennis_MansNadal

ENGLAND recovered from a dodgy start on day one of the first Test against South Africa to give themselves a fighting chance.

Alastair Cook and Co were just 49-3 but recovered well to post 179-4 on a rain-hit day yesterday. They have drifted from 5-2 to 15-4 (888sport) to win the opener while the draw will have backers at 5-2 on a slow, dry pitch.

The action in Durban resumes early on Sunday morning and South Africa – now 15-8 at Titanbet – will hope for some quick wickets.

In the NFL it’s a super Sunday of action with plenty of games as the race for the play-offs hots up.

There’s also a rugby cracker with Glasgow and Edinburgh doing battle in the 1872 Cup Final first leg and more darts drama from the World Championships.

Good luck with your bets and let’s hear your sporting tips and chat.

    Jackson has been taking the top off of defenses with touchdowns of 28, 56, 63 and 77 yards over that span. He has an attractive matchup against a banged-up Eagles secondary that could be without top cornerback Byron Maxwell,

    Gran Canaria @ Andorra (12:00GMT)

    Both teams are in good form this season but in my opinion guests are much better team and I think that they are more likely to take the win in a closley fought encounter. They have score 8-4 and they are 4th in this league while hosts are 7th with 6 victories and 6 defeats. This wont be easy match for Gran Canaria but I think that there is big quality difference and I expect them to impose their superiority early on.

    1st Half Winner: Gran Canaria @ 10/11 Ladbrokes – 1.1pt staked.

    Good luck!

    Two offensive 160+ teams here so I expect a fast tempo with plenty points. Odds have shortened considerably but I’m still on this at small stakes….

    Sevilla @ Estudiantes (12:00GMT)

    I’ve watched the home team a few times this season and they look ok. They have a great home support and that could help them today. Sevilla are poor away from home and although they have picked up 2 wins, this was against two of the poorest sides, Gipuzkoa Basket and Fuenlabrada, and I don’t think they’ll have the ability to beat a decent team like Estudiantes.

    Estudiantes -3.5 @ 20/23 Boylesport – 1.5pts staked.

    Good luck!

    World Championship darts afternoon session

    Singles:

    Smith vs Beaton, Beaton over 3.5 180’s 5/6 **NAP**

    Smith vs Beaton, highest chekout score over 130.5 5/6

    Van den Bergh vs Van de Pas, Van den Bergh win 13/8

    Double:

    Smith vs Beaton, Beaton over 3.5 180’s
    Van der Voort vs Anderson, over 5.5 sets

    1.96/1

    Beaton is nearly always set low 180 lines by bookies but the former world champion is more than capable on them. He should aquire at least four especially if Smith starts slow, which he can have a tendancy to do.

    Smith is excellent on high ton chekout combinations using the same bed and a double. So far the 130.5 line was breached twice in three matches yesterday and it should have a good chance of being surpassed in this game.

    Van den Bergh caused one of the upsets of round one by eliminating number 9 in the world Ian White 3-1. Admittedly White was not playing well throughout but Van den Bergh displayed consistancy thoughout and was hitting trebles, cover shots and doubles well. I feel he is playing with immense confidence right now and is enjoying the occasion. Van de Pas’ darts stick upwards on the board on contact. He seems to experiance visits to the oche frequently where he struggles to hit a single treble and his scoring subsequently drops so from a consistency viewpoint I think Van der Bergh can edge it at a good price.

    Anderson vs Van der Voort could potentially go all the way to a last set. I can see both players winning legs on their throw. I guess it will ultimately come down to who can checkout better with regards to winning the match but I’d expext the match to go over 5 sets.

    World Championship darts evening session:

    Singles:

    Van Barneveld vs Bunting, highest checkout score over 130.5 5/6 **NAP**

    Wade vs Newton, Wade over 4.5 180’s 1/1

    Van Gerwin vs Webster, Van Gerwin over 7.5 180’s 5/4

    Double:

    Van Barneveld vs Bunting, Van Barneveld win
    Wade vs Newton, Wade highest checkout

    6/5 **NB**

    So far out of six matches in round two, the 130.5 checkout line has been surpassed four times. Bunting and especially Barney regularly take out big finishes and I’d expect one if not both to post a higher checkout than the set line.

    Wade at times rather unfairly has a reputation for not being a power scorer but anyone who has seen his recent performances should beg to differ. He has been getting impressive amounts of 140’s and 180’s and is displaying a type of consistency that has seen people label him as a serious candiddate to go all the way this year. In the longer format of round two he should chalk up at lest five 180’s.

    I think Van Gerwin is going to put on an exhibition of darting power today after being given an almighty scare by Eidams in round one. In the first round the highest 180 count was jointly held by Winstanley and Evans at nine 180’s apiece and with no disrespect to them, MVG is definitely more capable in that department so in the longer format, where it could be possible that Webster wins a set, eight 180’s for MVG is realistically achievable.

    Barney vs Bunting will make for an entertaining match but its one that Barney will edge I think. Bunting has not been setting the world alight this year whilst Barney is the more effective doubler and generally has a knack of being able to do things at the right time. In this world hampionship format, where a whole set can hinge on a single leg or a final dart, Barney posseses the experiance to deliver the goods.

    Newton was absoloutly awful in his first round match. There was a difference of ten points between him and Reyes’ three dart averages which happens very rarely in darts. The only reason he progressed was because Reyes missed his doubles and let him in. Against Wade, needless to say he will get outclassed in virtually every department. Wade will very likely take the highest checkout accolade simply because I cannot see him presenting newton with many chances but in addition he is known as one of the best at checking out big scores, which he is also excellent at doing under pressure.

    Evening gents. Just catching the last quarter of this Packers game. Safe to say I know my own team fairly well. Unfortunately I was blinded by the Steelers smoke and mirrors. Very hard to win if you lose the turnover battle as you’ll see in this Packers game, but Big Ben not managing a TD was surprising to go with his two interceptions. Could have been three but a 100 yard pick six was pulled back too.

    3.74/1 @ 365 – 2 points **LOSE**

    With only one game left for tonight I’m going to put some faith into All Day Adrian Peterson to pound the Giants who are dine for the season and won’t have their star wide out Odell Beckham Jr who is serving his suspension from last weeks foul play.

    I think I’ll have a point on Grizzlies -14.5 in-play against the Lakers. They’re usually pretty reliable second half at home and the Lakers are just awful if we’re being honest.
