Daily Sports Tips – Tuesday 18th December
Columbus Blue Jackets v Vegas Golden Knights
Golden Knights To Win @ $2.20
The Golden Knights rise up the Western Conference standings has been nothing short of remarkable. Vegas have now won seven of their last 10-games, which makes them great value at this price to knock off the Blue Jackets on the road. Columbus are fresh from an overtime loss to the Ducks on Saturday, one that has cast some doubt over whether or not Columbus are a serious playoff contender. This should be a fun high-scoring shootout between two teams that rank toward the top of the league in goals.
Carolina Panthers v New Orleans Saints
Saints 1-6 @ $4.50
You can put a fork in the Panthers if they lose to the Saints at home today. At 6-7, Carolina are still a chance to sneak into the NFC Wild Card picture, but given they’ve shown nothing of note during this five-game losing streak, it’s hard to see the Panthers pulling off an upset over the Saints. Sean Payton’s side are still seeking home field advantage and a first-round bye during the playoffs, and with a 4-1 record against the Panthers in their last five games, the Saints should be safe.
Leicester vs Manchester City
City To Win To Nil @ $2.88
City remain unbeaten against Leicester in their last four games dating back to 2016. The Wolves have managed just three goals in those three meetings, while their form at home this season has been fairly so-so. City looked back to their best on the weekend defeating Everton 3-1, and with Pep Guardiola boasting a full-strength side, this quarter-final match should be fairly one-sided.
