Nuggets aiming to square series against Lakers

The Denver Nuggets are down 2-1 in the NBA Western Conference Finals, and Game 4 on Thursday night is crunch time. After losing by 12 points in the first meeting, the Nuggets went down by a mere two points in the second clash after a spirited second half.

The third game of the series gave us an insight into what Denver can deliver, and they sent the Lakers packing with a final scoreline of 114-106. The Nuggets will be hoping they can level the series in this next matchup, but most NBA betting sites have Denver as big outsiders at around +205 for the win.

Man United travel to Brighton under pressure

Manchester United suffered an embarrassing and unexpected defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace in their opening game of the English Premier League season. They were outfought by the Eagles all game long, and much of last season’s progress looked to have evaporated into thin air.

The saga of the summer transfer window could prove costly for United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season. The pressure will increase if this week’s trip away to Brighton & Hove Albion doesn’t bring about a much-improved display. Nevertheless, EPL betting sites have Man United as -138.89 favourites to win on the south coast.

Casablanca derby too close to call

The upcoming Raja Casablanca vs Wydad Casablanca match is looking to be a close one. The two sides sit top of the AC Botola table, with one point putting Raja ahead. Raja have remained undefeated in their last four away encounters and are yet to lose against Wydad.

While much of the commentary around the match favors Raja, many soccer betting sites have the two sides deadlocked at around +150 apiece for the win. One of the advantages for Wyadad is that it’s a home game. They have an excellent record on their own turf and haven’t lost a match there in the last three encounters.

Real Madrid still searching for first La Liga win

One of the more anticipated La Liga matches of the weekend sees Real Madrid take on Real Betis. Online sportsbooks favor Madrid, who drew with 0-0 with Real Sociedad in their opening game of the season. 

Betis have made a strong start to the campaign, defeating both Alaves (1-0) and Real Valladolid (2-0). Los Blancos represent a big jump in class, so it is no surprise that the Sevillans are home underdogs this weekend. Betis are yet to concede a goal, so you can expect a battle between attack and defense here.

Internacional face Sao Paulo in Brazilian Serie A

It’s second against third in the Brazilian Serie A, and Internacional need the win to maintain their position in the standings. Sao Paulo could turn up the heat after drawing 2-2 with Santos last time out.

Internacional have won just a single match out of their last five appearances in the league, and they need Thiago Galhardo to find form before they slip down the table. It’s going to be tough going, but playing at home will likely make the difference.

Wellington Lions to battle on without Savea

This Friday’s Mitre 10 Cup match between the Wellington Lions and the Bay of Plenty could take place without the return of Julian Savea. The former All Blacks star had only just returned to his hometown side after a three-year absence.

Rugby betting sites still fancy the Lions to dominate this one, but the growing injury list is a big concern for head coach Leo Crowley. It’s going to be tighter than first thought, so see if you can find good odds for a cheeky punt on an over/under bet.
