Well, it was a perfect start to the week yesterday. We started off with a bang with Preston taking a 2-0 lead into halftime, and then finishing 3-0 winners in their FA Cup tie against Havant & Waterlooville. Callum Robertson’s hat-trick clinched it for us. Looking back, Preston were a cut above, and then the 1/3 offered by the bookies would have been generous, especially when you look at how one-sided the contest was. Of course, two red cars for the minnows also helped us ease over he line.
After that, we turned our attention to the Grand Slam of Darts. It was a great night of darts, actually, but Robbie Green gave us a bit of a scare, missing match darts before finally getting past Vincent van der Voort 5-4, hitting a maximum 170 checkout to win the match. Our darts tipsters was pleased to get the result there, with Kong looking like he was going to blow it. He’ll be glued to the darts for the rest of the week, hopefully bringing us a few more value bets for the Grand Slam of Darts.
The NHL hot streak continued, with the Bruins doing the job for us. We all thought they were far too big a price, and the duly obliged, easing past the Devils. After going a goal down early, the Bruins equalized and then never looked back in their 4-2 win.
And finally, the most comfortable win of the night came for the Philadelphia Eagles and, more importantly, Mark Sanchez. Sanchez looked like he’d been in that role for the Eagles for a lifetime as he helped his side crush the spread of -7 in a 45-21 route. In fact, 31 points in the first half put the game out of sight, which was a nice respite for us to finish the night.
So, November 10th was a great day, and today, November 11th, we have a huge variety of sporting action for you. We’ll look to continue the hot streak in the NHL, our darts tipster has another fancy at the Grand Slam, but we’re also going to look at the Scottish FA Cup and the ATP Finals Tennis which is taking place in London. Our tennis tipster was amazed when he saw the line, so check his fancy below.
Scottish Cup: Airdrieonians vs Greenock Morton
The Scottish Cup may not have the same prestige as its English counterpart, but we don’t care, because there’s sporting action and where there’s sporting action we can find value. The value here comes in the form of Greenock Morton to beat their League One counterparts. Morton are coming off the back of a huge win against league-leading Forfar at the weekend, while Airdrieonians are languishing in the bottom quarter of the table.
They’ve played twice this season, with their draw coming on the back of a 2-1 Morton win. While Airdrieonians will be confident after their win over Stenhousemuir at the weekend, we just think the high-flyers of Morton will have too much and will progress to the next round of the Scottish Cup. The 6/4 odds are extremely tempting.
ATP Finals Tennis: Andy Murray vs Milos Raonic
It’s not often we feature a tennis tip on Sports Betting Tips, but our tennis tipster saw the price on Milos Raonic and could not believe his eyes. Andy Murray looked terrible against Kei NIshikori, and while Raonic didn’t fare any better in his first match at the ATP Finals, he was, to be fair, playing Roger Federer.
So, you take Murray’s shocking performance in his first game, add in his injuries and the fact he toured Europe to just make the finals, and then consider that Raonic leads the head-to-head between the two, and it’s puzzling to see that Raonic is such a big price at 13/8. The money is coming for the Canadian, however, so get on him as soon as possible. It should be a close one, which means the value play here is getting on the big serving Raonic.
Grand Slam of Darts: James Wade vs Tony O’Shea
Big match for both James Wade and Tony O’Shea tonight. It’s winner takes all, and there’s no doubt that Wade is the form player of the two. However, Wade’s averages over the weekend have been less than stellar, while O’Shea has been playing to a standard we would expect. The one thing worth noting is that the crowd LOVES O’Shea, and they’ll be singing his walk-on music, ‘Hey, Baby’ all the way through his match. Wade might just struggle to get himself motivated and if that’s the case, the 11/4 on O’Shea is HUGE value. It’s a race to 5, both players have been playing to a similar standard, so you have to back O’Shea purely for the value aspect. Win or lose, he is nowhere near an 11/4 shot.
NHL: Minnesota vs New Jersey
No Zach Parise for the Wild tonight, and that’s going to hurt them. The Devils didn’t look too bad against the Bruins, and will be confident they can continue the Wild’s poor recent run. Only a couple of mistakes by the man in goal for the Devils condemned them to defeat last night, so if they can sort that out, a win is likely, even if they aren’t banging in the goals. Wild to struggle tonight, the Devils to do the job for us.
