Heat clinch NBA East in Game 6

The Boston Celtics turned the tide in Game 5 of the NBA Eastern Conference finals, leading online sportsbooks to install them as favorites to square the series at 3-3 on Sunday night. But it was not to be, as the Miami Heat put on a fourth-quarter blitz to seal it with a 125-113 win.

Next up for the Heat are the Los Angeles Lakers, who booked their spot in the 2020 NBA Finals with a dominant 4-1 victory over the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference decider.

Tottenham given bye into League Cup fourth round

A little under a week ago, the Tottenham Hotspur vs Leyton Orient game in the Carabao Cup was called off after multiple Orient players tested positive for COVID-19. Due to a law outlined by the EFL, Spurs have been awarded a bye going into the fourth round of the tournament. 

Tottenham will now face Chelsea, who left the third round on a high after thrashing Barnsley 6-0 as Kai Havertz scored his maiden hat-trick for the Blues. Thiago Silva, another new signing, also played a spectacular game.

We reckon that it’ll be close between the two rivals, but we’re with the soccer betting sites here and backing the Blues.

Sunshine Tour continues with Vodacom Championship Reloaded

South Africa is getting ready for the next stop on the Sunshine Tour golf circuit, with the Vodacom Championship Reloaded set to commence on Thursday, September 30.

That event follows the Vodacom Championship Unlocked, where Daniel von Tander took out the title. He is among the favorites again at South African betting sites, where the likes of Jaco Ahlers, Darren Fichardt, and George Coetzee are also well backed.

Italian Serie A rolls on

The Italian Serie A campaign has just begun, with day two games coming to an end on Monday. In the closing match for this round, Bologna will have the advantage of home territory at Renato Dall’Ara against Parma.

Both sides are looking to redeem themselves after losing 2-0 in their respective opening matches. Both teams have been active in releasing and gaining new players during the transfer window, so it’s difficult make any accurate predictions after only one game.

In the past, the two have paired up equally and often played out draws. Bologna have had the better of the matchup in recent years, but we are going against the online sportsbooks and backing a stalemate this time.

More action in Colombian Primera A

Round 10 of the Colombian Primera A is upon us, and the last match of the week is between Rionegro Aguilas and Deportivo Pasto. The latter side have slowly climbed the ladder this season, but they might not have it in them to defeat Rionegro Aguilas.

Deportivo Pasto seems to have a mental block in this matchup, and it’s difficult to shake. They might be having the better season overall, but we are backing Rionegro Aguilas to further improve their head-to-head advantage.

Lions take on Tigers in AFL finals

The Brisbane Lions will take on the Richmond Tigers this Friday night in the first week of the 2020 AFL Finals Series. We’re definitely in for an exciting game as the two big cats fight for a spot in the preliminary finals in two weeks’ time.

While Brisbane finished second on the ladder and Richmond ran third, the Lions will have to buck an alarming trend if they are to win this one. They have not beaten the Tigers since 2009, so it is easy to see why AFL betting sites favor the reigning premiers.

White Ferns go 0-2 down in T20I series

The women’s T20 International series against Australia has begun, and it seems as though the six-month break due to the coronavirus hasn’t been kind to the White Ferns. On Saturday they went down by 17 runs, and on Sunday the Aussies chased down a target of 129 with eight wickets and more than three overs to spare.

The New Zealand women haven’t beaten their trans-Tasman rivals since February 2007, and cricket betting sites are expecting that trend to continue when they face off at Allan Border Field on Wednesday for the final game of the series.
