Welcome to the Sports Betting Tips for December 30th, 2014.

2 more days till the end of the year – and already Christmas seems so bloody long ago. Seems like 3 months ago I was sitting there at the TV lambasting LeBron and screaming at the Spurs to guard Westbrook and it was just five freaking days ago. Yikes.

Hope you enjoyed yet ANOTHER successful outing with the Bet365 In Play bets. We’ve been killing that and we did just that yesterday with Liverpool vs Swansea. We backed Liverpool to keep their form going and they did that with the win over Swansea. We also had the in-play bet of Over 2.5 goals and that one came in nice and easy as Liverpool hammered Swansea.

Great news though – as Bet365 have yet ANOTHER in-play special. This is for the Man Utd vs Stoke game and it’s the same deal – bet $50 before the match, then bet $50 in-play and that latter is a free bet. Get your stake back if you lose.

We’ll have New Years Day fixture betting tips tomorrow, but let’s cover that game early:

Stoke vs Man Utd Betting Tips:

As we said – for this one get a bloody account at so you can take advantage of the free bet.

You bet $50 before the match – 50 quid if you’re in the UK – then you bet $50 or 50 quid during the match or once it starts – and if the latter loses don’t worry; you get the 50 bones back.

This is a tricky fixture for sure. Everything about it says Under 2.5 goals. But that’s where we will play the risks.

We are going to bet Man Utd to win pre-match. 1/1 odds on them and we like them to come out firing after the goalless draw at Spurs. Then during the match we’ll bet Over 2.5 goals at 21/20 odds. We feel that’s the more risky bet of the two.

So head on over to for the free bet.

NHL Betting Tips:

4 games today. Let’s analyze them:

Panthers vs Canadiens: A tricky one but we like the Panthers to steal the win here. They’ve been solid and 1.83 odds shows that the Habs road form is weak. We’ll go one step further though – if Panthers win, we think they win in regulation so 2.40 is the bet to make here.

Blues vs Predators: After the way the Predators collapsed, and Blues coming off that big win over the Avalanche we like St Louis to continue their form. Take them 2.25 odds for the win here.

Kings vs Oilers: With the Kings road form very poor we don’t see any value in them at 1.52, or in regulation. However the handicap is 2.60 which is fairly good. We’d recommend a quarter unit bet on that.

Canucks vs Sharks: Like the Sharks to win and we locked them in at 1.72 odds soon as the lines were out. It’s now 1.64 which is not a good price. Recommended to skip.
