Daily Sports Tips – Sunday 30th December
Alabama Crimson Tide vs Oklahoma Sooners
Oklahoma at The Line (+14 Points) @ $1.87
The Crimson Tide have opened as 14-point favourites ahead of the second College Football Semi-Final, but the defence remains a big question mark for Alabama after a close call in the SEC Championship Game against Georgia. All eyes will be on the quarterback battle between Heisman foes Kyler Murray and Tua Tagovailoa, but with Murray able to slice apart defences with a deep arm, just like Jake Fromm did for the Bulldogs a month ago, Oklahoma can certainly keep this close.
Alexander Gustafsson v Jon Jones
Jones To Win Via KO/TKO/Submission @ $2.40
It’s been a long time coming for both of these fighters as Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson return to the octagon to duke it out for the vacant Light Heavyweight title. It’s tough to know what to expect given both fighters’ lengthy absence, but after these two met way back in 2013, we do know Gustaffson is capable of taking Jones down. Still, it’s been a long time since we’ve seen Jones KO an opponent, and at these odds, it’s simply too good to pass up.
Burnley v West Ham United
West Ham To Win @ $2.20
West Ham bounced back to winning ways last week with a 2-1 victory over Southampton, which has been enough to earn them favourtism in the market. Burnley’s season continues to take a turn for relegation after a third straight loss, which makes it hard to back The Clarets at home this week. Burnley are 2-2-8 as the home underdog over the last 12 months, and have enjoyed just one win in seven meetings with the Hammers.
