Daily Sports Tips – Thursday 27th September
Atlanta Braves vs New York Mets
Braves To Win @ $2.45
Because Jacob deGrom takes the mound for the Mets, New York enter this one as the favourite. You only have to take a look at his ugly 9-9 win/loss record to know that even despite his dominance, the Mets often find a way to lose once he leaves the mound though. The Braves have also scored the eighth most runs against lefties this season, and hold an impressive away record. With the division already wrapped up, this should be a huge momentum builder for Atlanta.
Houston Dynamo vs Philadelphia Union
Dynamo To Win @ $2.05
It’s the final of the U.S. Open Cup this morning between two fairly surprising finalists. The Dynamo have never played in the final before, while the Union are seasoned veterans with today’s match marking their third appearance in the last five years. The Dynamo enter as the favourites though, and after a gutsy penalty shootout win over LAFC in the Semi-Final, Houston should bounce back strongly.
Empoli vs AC Milan
AC Milan To Win To Nil @ $3.10
The odds are firmly in favour of the Italian giants, and rightfully so – AC Milan remain unbeaten in their last four games. Monday’s 2-2 draw with Atalanta didn’t help Milan’s cause though, cementing them firmly in the bottom half of the table. Fortunately 17th ranked Empoli are up on next on Friday morning, a team that has managed just four-points from five games.
