Welcome to the Sports Betting Tips for Sunday, August 29th.
Can I just take a second to say – holy crap, do I miss UFC on Saturdays. You can talk about oversaturation all you want – and honestly I’m sure I’ve rattled on and on about it in the past. But man – do I ever miss not having UFC to watch on Saturday nights.
It was a mixed bag with the soccer betting tips yesterday.
We went 0-2 in the Barclays Premier League. We had Leicester and Villa both to win. Both teams could only manage a point as neither team could sneak the victory unfortunately.
In the English Championship we got the correct result of Hull beating Preston. They beat them 2-0 with goals from Hernandez and Davies.
In the Scottish Premiership we went 2-1. Unfortunately Dundee vs Caley let us down with a 1-1 draw. We did get wins with Aberdeen and Ross County thankfully. Overall it was a 3-3 day with the tips, for the tiniest of profits. About 0.2 units if you bet flat.
In the golf, Justin Rose had a ridiculous -7 day and if he can continue this form he will cash. Crazy to think if it wasn’t for his +7 day on round 1 – if he had just parred – he would be in the lead by now.
Alright onto Sundays betting action:
Barclays Premier League Betting Tips:
2 games today which are Southampton vs Norwich and Swansea vs Man Utd.
Southampton are quite heavy favourites despite not playing well at the moment which is interesting. Norwich aren’t exactly lighting the league on fire either but they’ve got results and are in 10th while Soton are currently 2nd bottom with 2 draws and a win.
We’re going to take the Draw at 13/5 in this one. Neither team have looked that threatening. Norwich will be happy just to get a draw here we’re sure, and Southampton look like they are a long way away from getting their form.
In Swansea vs Man Utd, we’re going to take Man Utd for the win. everyone and their mother is tipping Swansea and we’re getting a nice price on Man Utd at 5/4 odds. We understand why of course – but we just think rather than a European hangover, Man Utd are going to use that form and do what they do best. This is a team who are one of the favourites to win the league, and these are the games they should be winning.
Scottish Championship Betting Tips:
Rangers face their biggest challenge yet this season in Queen of the South – although they are left reeling after a shock defeat against Morton. Out of both cups they’ll be fiery and hoping to beat the mighty Glasgow Rangers.
Rangers are a huge 2/5 which is just a massive price and one we can’t recommend. But we think Rangers can do what they’ve been doing – score early and dominate. So the best one is the half time/full time bet of Rangers-Rangers 1/1. Fair price considering the way the Gers have been playing.
