September 5th, 2016 Betting Tips: Tennis, International Football

Welcome to the free sports betting tips for Monday, September 5th, 2016.

And just like that, the NFL season is upon us. So soon after we said hello again to the soccer/football seasons starting throughout Europe, we now get the American namesake starting up, and all the fun that goes with it. And let’s not forget that we’re also into NRL Finals season, too. Of course, being a Rabbitohs fan, I don’t care, but it’ll be nice for anyone with a team to barrack for, as long as it isn’t the Bulldogs.

What happened in the world of sport over the weekend? Well, in football, not very much, with England getting a win, while Scotland saw off Malta after an early scare. Northern Ireland got a great point against the Czech Republic too, to get their World cup 2018 qualification campaign off to a solid start. Nico Rosberg won the Italian Grand Prix from Lewis Hamilton. We copped a nice bet on that race, too, with Sebastian Vettel getting a podium finish. The Paralympics start on Wednesday, with the opening ceremony from Rio, so if that’s your bag, get comfortable on the couch to watch the superhumans in action.

Now, let’s get onto the free sports betting tips for September 5th, 2016.

US Open Tennis Betting Tips

Not much in the way of value in terms of today’s action, as Juan Martin del Potro, who I had been hoping to back, is now far too short to be of any value. Dominic Thiem is almost the value bet here, but he’s not impressed me at all, while JMDP has looked a force to be reckoned with. Ivo Karlovic is also a tasty price, and he’s sure to test Kei Nishikori with his booming serve, but even if he can nick a set or two, time is against him, and Nishikori should be able to battle it out.

However, there is some value in backing Venus Williams to beat Karolina Pliskova, with the American legend a shade of odds-against in places. 2016 has been a great year for Venus when compared to recent years. Her run at Wimbledon was nothing short of phenomenal, and she does love it here at Flushing Meadows, while Pliskova is a bit of an unknown quantity and can be up and down, sometimes in the same game. Williams’ experience should shine through here, in what is a big match for Pliskova, and I think the nerves will get the better of her.

World Cup Qualifiers Betting Tips

Albania to beat Macedonia is a bet I love. Albania impressed me at Euro 2016, and they’ve shown that while not in the upper echelons of the game, they can hold their own against some big teams. Macedonia aren’t in the same league as the teams the Albanians faced in France, so get on Albania to build on that tournament and to start setting their sights on Russia 2018.

Ukraine vs Iceland under 2.5 goals. Yeah, not a massive price here, but Ukraine stank up Euro 2016, while Iceland done well with a tight back line and a counter-attacking game. It’s not a novel suggestion here, but I think both sides would be happy to come out of this with a point at this early stage in qualification, and won’t be opening up too much.

Serbia to beat Ireland. Ireland, while getting out of the group stages at Euro 2016, were no great shakes, let’s be honest. Now, the travel to Serbia with potentially two of their back four that might not be fully fit, and if either don’t play, it’s going to be tough for the Irish with their second string. Serbia have the potential, and as favourites to win their group, this is a game that Serbia will want to win. They’re odds-against, and I can see them nicking the win in what will be a scrappy game. Ireland don’t tend to travel well, either, and Serbia isn’t a friendly place to go to in search of a point or three. I’m all about the Eastern Europeans tonight.
