United look to respond after Huddersfield shock, Koeman in trouble
Tottenham beating Liverpool 4-1 ensured a profitable weekend for the column and we have all the best midweek betting angles covered with the Carabao Cup taking centre stage.
Running total: -£93.09
The Home Banker
Leicester City have enjoyed arguably their best results in the Carabao Cup this season and they can seal a quarterfinal berth by easing past Leeds United on Tuesday. The Foxes were brilliant in the last round as they knocked Liverpool out and before that they recorded a 4-1 win on the road at Sheffield United. Leeds have lost some momentum in recent weeks, losing three of their last four matches in the Championship. So given Leicester will have home advantage here and a few fringe players keen to impress interim boss Michael Appleton, they look a good shout in a game that should produce a few goals.
Selection: £5 on Leicester to win and over 2.5 goals at 6/5 with bet365
The Tasty Treble
Ronald Koeman and Slaven Bilic are two bosses under massive pressure and both head to the capital on Wednesday for crunch Carabao Cup encounters. Everton face Chelsea while West Ham take on Spurs and while you couldn't make a legitimate case for backing either on current form, goals could flow in both matches. Backing both teams to score in the games at Stamford Bridge and Wembley could well be the way to go. So too at the Etihad, where Manchester City are set to ring the changes against Championship leaders Wolves.
Selection: £3 on BTTS treble at 5.33/1 with bet365
The Euro Wager
Ciro Immobile bagged two as Lazio breezed past Cagliari 3-0 on Sunday and they can follow that up by winning at Bologna in midweek. The Biancocelesti won at Juventus recently and are on a fantastic run so won't fear a trip to Bologna, where the visitors can be backed at 6/4 to be winning at half time and full time.
Selection: £2 on Lazio HT-FT at 6/4 with bet365
The Wildcard Tip
Anyone who watched Everton's performance against Arsenal at the weekend will concur this is a team in crisis. They looked all over the shop against the Gunners, who in truth could have won by a cricket score on Merseyside. Ronald Koeman insisted his players are still behind him in the wake of that 5-2 defeat but it could be worth backing Chelsea at 4/1 to be ahead after just 10 minutes of Wednesday's clash.
Selection: £1 on Chelsea to win (10 Minute Result) at 4/1 with bet365
The Bookie Basher
Swansea's defeat to Leicester at the weekend made it three defeats from four outings and they face a Manchester United side on Tuesday who will still be smarting after that shock defeat to Huddersfield. Jose Mourinho's men look too short to lump on at 4/9 but it could pay to have a speculative punt on them winning 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium. While scoring goals has not been a problem for Paul Clement's side, keeping them out has and even a much changed United side could prove too hot for them.
Selection: £2 on Manchester United to win 2-1 at 15/2 with bet365
Jordan’s Football Tips: Bari in a hurry
NOT the best looking card out there but I like the look of Bari to score at Brescia in Serie B.
Bari haven’t kept a clean sheet away from home this season in four games but they’ve scored in three of those.
This tie has seen BTTS in Brescia in the last six games. Serie B isn’t usually a league for goals but Bari do trend over, especially on the road. As well as the last six seeing BTTS at Brescia four have seen at least three goals.
I liked the looked of Bari’s goal time last night and it’s shortened by four minutes as of now which shows they are being backed. Could see BTTS but this is a reasonable time considering Brescia are on a run of three defeats without a goal.
- Bari goal before 58 mins
FanDuel NBA Picks For October 23rd
Our last stop on the NBA DFS train was Saturday, where we were greatly disappointed by Nikola Jokic. The Joker was excused from a shaky opener due to facing Rudy Gobert, but he managed to score 0 actual points against the Kings.
He actually only attempted three shots from the field, too. It was a weird performance and it held back our Saturday team, which got strong outings out of value picks like De’Aaron Fox (18 actual points), Kelly Olynyk (13-9-4-2-1 line) and J.J. Barea (19 actual points). Dillon Brooks wasn’t a total waste off the bench (9-2-2-1-1 line), either.
Devin Booker and T.J. Warren both struggled, while James Harden wasn’t quite as elite as we’d hoped. The same wasn’t the case for Giannis Antetokounmpo, who poured in a career-high 44 points en route to another 60+ fantasy point barrage.
It wasn’t the team we thought it’d be, but had Jokic not face-planted, it could have come close. Hopefully you at least cashed with some variation of our Saturday daily fantasy basketball picks. Either way, we’re back to do a better job on Monday’s slate:
PG: Yogi Ferrell – Dallas Mavericks ($5.3k)
You can split hairs and go back and forth between Ferrell and J.J. Barea ($5k), but Ferrell started last game, got more run and put up a solid 33 fantasy points. Both guys are going to have value if Dennis Smith (knee) is out again, but if Ferrell is locked in for more minutes (41 last game) he has to be the play.
PG: Goran Dragic – Miami Heat ($7.1k)
The Dragon has been very solid to start the year, chipping in 31+ FanDuel points in each of his first two starts. Dragic was called on a little more to score in his last game with Hassan Whiteside out, so he could have extra upside if Whiteside (knee) is again held out tonight.
I like him, regardless, as he tends to thrive at home and will face a very beatable Hawks team. His matchup with Dennis Schroder is sublime on paper, as Schroder can’t stop anyone defensively.
I really don’t see the need to spend at point guard tonight. Chris Paul is out with an injury, Schroder is banged up, Eric Bledsoe is asking to be traded, Kemba Walker has to deal with Milwaukee’s length on the road and Stephen Curry tends to be held back by his stud teammates. I don’t dislike Curry (or John Wall, for that matter), but if Ferrell can hit 30 fantasy points and Dragic can toe around 40, I think we can get away with these picks.
SG: Dion Waiters – Miami Heat ($6.4k)
I think Klay Thompson and/or Devin Booker look and sound better at the shooting guard spot, but I think we can get the same value by dropping down to guys like Dion Waiters and/or Eric Gordon. The combination is up to you, but we save a whopping $800 here alone and it could go a long way in getting us the daily fantasy basketball lineup we want.
Waiters continues to be the heart and soul of Miami’s offense, as he’s averaging 17 points per game through two games. The run and shots are both there and now Waiters is at home against a Hawks team that ranks just 17th in the league in defensive efficiency, per ESPN’s Hollinger stats.
SG: Eric Gordon – Houston Rockets ($6.2k)
James Harden is going to be the primary focus of the Grizzlies tonight, so while he will probably be fine, I like the idea of targeting Gordon. Gordon and Devin Booker have similar games, so I don’t see the point in paying up for both Booker and Klay Thompson. We can get virtually the same guy here and pay $1,000 less in salary.
It was also reported over the weekend that Chris Paul would miss about 2-3 weeks with a knee issue, so we know Gordon is primed for a big role moving forward. He can score the ball at will, but hopefully when we use him he adds some extra stats en route to a huge performance.
SF: T.J. Warren – Phoenix Suns ($5.6k)
The Suns are in a bad way right now. The team just fired head coach Earl Watson and star point guard Eric Bledsoe took to Twitter to let everyone know he wants out:
I Dont wanna be here
— Eric Bledsoe (@EBled2) October 22, 2017
It’s a murky situation, but Phoenix gets an opponent in the Kings that they actually might be able to compete with. This is still a risk, but for GPPs, I still love Warren’s price and offensive upside. Just do some digging to see if the Suns interim coach plans on making any bold changes that would alter Warren’s fantasy value.
SF: Kelly Oubre Jr. – Washington Wizards ($5.3k)
Dillon Brooks ($4.4k) is worth a look again tonight, but we get plenty of value with Oubre, who continues to see a huge role with Markieff Morris sidelined. That figures to again be the case tonight, so we can chase Oubre’s solid rebounding (7.5 rebounds per game) and outside shooting to a solid total.
PF: Paul Millsap – Denver Nuggets ($7.9k)
Kelly Olynyk is probably the top value on this slate if Hassan Whiteside is out again, but with Miami’s star center potentially back on Monday, we’ll wait to make that call until later in the day. For now, I love the idea of pairing to high upside bigs together and that starts with Thrillsap.
Millsap has looked good in his first two games with Denver, as he’s scored 19 and 18 points. His other stats will eventually come, but if he can keep scoring like this (or better) we can’t pass him up at such a nice price.
PF: LaMarcus Aldridge – San Antonio Spurs ($8.8k)
I don’t love the huge spike in Ridge’s price, but his play has demanded it. With Kawhi Leonard out, we’ve seen vintage Portland Aldridge, as the big man as double-doubled with 25+ actual points in both contests. He has a tougher assignment tonight against the Raptors, but his role and talent are too good to ignore.
I know everyone craves Giannis in this spot, but he is up to $12.2k now and I feel like tonight might be a decent spot to fade him. I’d rather get Ridge’s volume and a second quality PF next to him.
C: Dwight Howard – Charlotte Hornets ($7.4k)
Call me crazy, but I don’t see a need in paying up for center tonight. Joel Embiid, Marc Gasol, Nikola Jokic, Andre Drummond and even a healthy Hassan Whiteside all sound fantastic, but Howard has been very solid (35+ fantasy points in both games this year) and looks to be in a winnable spot against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Those other options are fine to target on this slate, but I don’t see why we can’t save and settle for 35-40 with Dwight, who averaged over 15 points and 11 rebounds per game in three meetings with the Deer last season.
The Saint Greg Browning’s Tips: Belgian kids to hit target

October 23rd, 2017 NHL Betting Tips
Written by Scott on Monday, October 23rd, 2017
Only the one game last night and we didn’t have a tip for it.
It was the Vancouver Canucks vs the Detroit Red Wings. I had said that I liked the Wings to win and I was wrong. The Canucks won 4-1. For the Wings this was their 4th straight loss. The game was tied at 1 at the end of the 1st. The Canucks scored 3 times in the 2nd for the win.
Another slow night with only 2 games. But we were able to come up with 2 tips for tonight’s action.

Los Angeles Kings vs Toronto Maple Leafs Betting Tips:
These teams are ranked 1st and 3rd in the league in goals per game.
The Kings haven’t yet lost in regulation this season only taking the one loss to the Flames in OT.
The Leafs are 6-2 and are averaging 4.63 GPG. They may be the most exciting team to watch with their speed and all the skill their youngsters have.
This should be a great game. And I like it to be a high scoring one.

San Jose Sharks vs New York Rangers Betting Tips:
This will be the Sharks 3rd game in 4 days so fatigue may start to catch up to them.
The Rangers won their last game to snap their 5 game losing skid. They will look to make it two wins in a row in this one. The season is still young but a 5 game losing streak could come back to haunt them as the season progresses.
Over the last 10 meetings between these teams they have averaged 6 GPG. Both teams are allowing more than 3 GAPG.
I like this one to also be a high scoring game.
