Daily Sports Tips – Tuesday 23rd October
Atlanta Falcons vs New York Giants
Atlanta Falcons to Cover the Line (-4.5)
Two struggling sides face off in today’s NFL game, with the Falcons slight favourites over the Giants. This is New York’s second straight primetime game and they have had 11 days to stew over their embarrassing effort against Philadelphia in their last outing. Atlanta have at least shown some promise lately, scoring over 30 points in each of their home games so far this year. This is not so much a vote of confidence in the Falcons as much as it is a tip against the Giants who have been a huge letdown given the skill position talent on the roster.
PSV v Tottenham
Tottenham to Win @ $2.00
It really is now or never for Tottenham in the Champions League, they have dropped their first two games to Inter and Barcelona and need to gain some ground as their two conquerors face off in Spain. Despite having to travel for this game, Tottenham have been quite strong on the road over the past two seasons. With three wins, three draws and a loss in the Champions League, it is more than reasonable to expect them to pick up all three points here and the value of an even $2 is too good to pass up.
Manchester United v Juventus
Draw @ $3.10
Manchester United’s huge month continues with the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford in Europe’s biggest club competition. Their form throughout the season has been somewhat uneven but they will take some confidence after picking up a well deserved point away to Chelsea on the weekend. Juventus however are flying, unbeaten in all competitions so far and yet to concede a goal in the Champions League. United away will be their biggest test of the group stage and if both sides come to play, this has the makings of a classic that ends with honours shared.
