Daily Sports Tips – Wednesday 8th August
Kansas City Royals vs Chicago Cubs
Royals To Win @ $2.40
The Royals fell to the Cubs 3-1 yesterday, but they’ll have their chance for redemption today against Mike Montgomery. Chicago’s lefty has had some awful outings in the last month, but he seems to struggle particularly on the road. Montgomery has failed to make it past five innings in his last two starts, and although Kansas City look awful with the bats, they should have a chance if they can force the bullpen into this game early.
Real Madrid vs Roma
Correct Score: Real Madrid 2-1 @ $8,50
These two teams will square off in one last friendly before they depart for next weeks domestic campaigns. Real Madrid have had an up and down offseason, losing to the likes of Manchester United and Juventus, but they come in as the heavy favourites today. Life after Cristiano Ronaldo has proved tough for the Spanish giants, but they should have no trouble scoring goals today if Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale can fire away.
Sri Lanka vs South Africa
Man of the Match: J.P. Duminy
The fourth of the ODI’s between these two teams heats up from Sri Lanka, and after a 78-run win on Sunday, you have to back the visitors. South Africa were impressive behind Reeza Hendricks’ 102 run haul, and if Jean-Paul Duminy can contribute once again with close to a century of his own, the Springboks should get up pretty easily.
