Daily Sports Tips – Wednesday 24th October
Boston Red Sox vs Los Angeles Dodgers
Red Sox/Under 7.5 Runs
After pounding the Brewers convincingly in Game 7 of the NLCS, the Dodgers hope to keep the good times rolling today in Game 1 of the World Series. Unfortunately for LA, a tough road trip to Fenway awaits, which also means facing Red Sox ace Chris Sale. The Dodgers ranked Top 10 in run-scoring against left-handed pitchers during the regular season, but away from home in a tricky and unfamiliar ballpark, the Dodgers bats may find it tough to heat up against one of the games most proficient strikeout artists.
Edmonton Oilers v Pittsburgh Penguins
Oilers To Win @ $2.00
If nothing else this game should be a fun watch between two of the NHL’s most exciting attacking teams. The Oilers three-game winning streak came to an end on Sunday against the Predators, and they’ve now had three days to mull over what went wrong. Defeating Pittsburgh is no easy feat, however after a close call against the Leafs last week, the Penguins need to tighten up defensively to avoid giving away silly penalties. If the Oilers receive a handful of powerplay opportunities, their attack is capable of winning this at home.
Pakistan v Australia
Pakistan To Win @ $1.80
The first of the T20’s gets underway in the early hours of Thursday morning, and it looks like an uphill battle already for the Aussies without Usman Khawaja. Love him or hate him, Mitchell Starc will also miss out due to an injured hamstring, which leaves the bulk of the bowling in the hands of Mitch Marsh and Nathan Lyon.
