Daily Sports Tips – Thursday 7th June

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors
11.00am AEST

Golden State Warriors to Win @ $1.62

After an admirable effort in Game 1, Cleveland just did not have the horses to compete in Game 2. They hope that a return to Ohio gives them a boost to get their first win in the series. Golden State appear to have all the momentum now and shot 57.3% from the field in Game 2. I expect that to continue with Steph Curry leading the way from outside as the Warriors push for a 3-0 series lead.

England vs Costa Rica
5.00am AEST

Over 2.5 Goals

World Cup preparations continue for both of these sides in England’s final hit out before their opening game. England will look to put on a show against a Costa Rica side set up to defend and frustrate their opponents. With this game being their second of three matches in the space of eight days, Costa Rica will be a bit below full strength as their squad is managed in the lead up to facing Serbia and England will have some fringe players ready to make an impact. Expect a few goals in this one.

Portugal vs Algeria
6.00am AEST

Portugal to Win to Nil

Portugal’s last World Cup warm up features Algeria after back to back draws against Tunisia and Belgium. Algeria on the other hand recently went down to Cape Verde so Portugal, even if they are a touch under strength are still a huge jump from that opponent. For Portugal this game has been scheduled as a confidence booster and a win to nil is the only outcome they will accept here.
