Daily Sports Tips – Saturday 19th March
Newcastle Knights vs Canberra Raiders
Raiders To Beat The Line (-4.5 Points)
The Canberra Raiders have started the 2016 NRL season with back-to-back wins and they are well-placed to make it three wins on the trot. The Newcastle Knights have been nothing short of atrocious in recent weeks and coach Nathan Brown admits that it might be years until the Knights are genuine finals contenders again. The Knights have won just two of their past 13 games as underdogs and the Raiders should cover the line comfortably.
Central Coast Mariners vs Sydney FC
Sydney FC To Win @ $1.57
Sydney FC have struggled in the A-League in the past month, but they will take plenty of confident into this game after recording back-to-back wins in the Asian Champions League. Sydney FC are 4-2 as away favourites this season, while the Central Coast Mariners have lost their past six games and have clearly lost interest this season.
Sunwolves vs Rebels
Sunwolves To Beat The Line (+5.5 Points)
The Sunwolves have performed well above expectations in their two Super Rugby games to date this season and they really should have beaten the Cheetahs last week. The Rebels are 2-1 this season, but they were far from impressive last weekend against the Reds and they are 2-5 against the line as favourites in the past 12 months. The Sunwolves are going to give the Rebels a serious test and they are a good bet to cover the line with a start of 5.5 points.
Crystal Palace vs Leicester City
Leicester City To Win @ $2.40
Leicester City have been an outstanding betting proposition this season and they should be able to move closer to the English Premier League title with another win this weekend. Crystal Palace are a shocking 1-1-6 as underdogs this season, while Leicester City have been a very reliable 15-6 as home favourites. The $2.40 is big overs and Leicester City are the best bet in the Premier League this weekend.
