[Get Exclusive Tips on our Patreon, Ad-Free

Whew – an absolutely bloody perfect day yesterday.

We had Bayern Munich-Bayern Munich as a half time/full time bet and won that – although it was a bit nervy at times. Speaking of nervy, we also had Atletico Madrid to beat Real Madrid at 3/1 odds and wow was that one squeaky bum time at times. Finally we had the LA Sparks +10.5 in the WNBA and holy crap they almost actually won the game!

An absolutely perfect 3-0 day yesterday. Just amazing, and hopefully we can continue that for today.

I still can’t believe that Sparks line. +10.5 and we said it was way off and they lost by 3 points. Sometimes the linesmakers in the WNBA are seriously just clueless. Let’s check out todays WNBA action and see what we can get, and we’re also going to be celebrating the beginning of the Champions Hockey League, and doing some betting tips for that.

For those unsure – the Champions Hockey League is a new league set up in Europe. Think of the UEFA Champions League except you know – for hockey. That’s what it is.

Also today there are two UFC shows. We’ve already posted the picks for them a few times throughout the week, but in case you missed them here they are again:

  • Tyron Woodley to beat Dong-Hyun Kim
  • Elizabeth Phillips to beat Milana Dudleva
  • Chas Skelly to beat Tom Niinimaki
  • Alex Garcia to beat Neil Magny
  • James Vick to beat Valmir Lazaro

Alrighty, onto the Sports Betting Tips for August 23rd, 2014:

WNBA Betting Tips: San Antonio Stars vs Minnesota Lynx

It’s a big game for the Stars – they need this win as they’re down 1-0.

Even more importantly – this is the final year for Becky Hammon, and you have to wonder how big that is for the Stars.

We expect the Stars to push, push, push. The line is tight – the Stars are +3.5 and we think the Lynx ARE slightly better – but the Stars are at home, and with the Becky Hammon factor it’s hard not to have that affect you.

Bet: Stars to cover the point spread +3.5 – bet that at 5Dimes Sportsbook.

CHL Betting Tips: HC PSG Zlin vs Djurgarden Stockholm

This is the 2nd game in the CHL for both these teams. In their first game, the PSG Zlin beat Eisbaren Berlin after a shootout, and Djurgarden Stockholm went to overtime to beat Fribourg-Gotteron 5-4.

We like this one to be Over 5.5 Both teams showed in the games, which were 3-3 and 4-4 at the end of regulation time respectively, that they can both score and concede. We expect a similar tight and competitive game here.

Bet: Over 5.5 goals by the end of regulation time. 11/10 odds and you can bet the CHL at

CHL Betting Tips: Hamburg Freezers vs Lukko

2nd game for these two teams as well. On Game Day 1, the Hamburg Freezers got hammered 4-1 at home to Lulea Hockey – quite the imaginative team name there. Lukko Rauma came up big with a 4-2 win on the road to the Panthers.

We like Kukko to get the win here. They are 22/25 odds to win – both teams are, which shows the sportsbooks lack of knowledge with the teams.

Lukko are the better team. Bet them to win.

Bet: Lukko Rauma to beat the Hamburg Freezers. 22/25 odds at
