Elton’s Best Bets 02/01/2019


Today I want to start off by wishing you all Happy New year! I look forward to an amazing 2019!

We get right back into it again this week by looking at the Proteas Test, the first PGA event of the year and some local soccer…

SA vs Pakistan

The Proteas were dominant in the last test match and I can’t see them losing round 2. World Sports Betting agrees and has them priced up at 7/20 favourites. For me, the real value is in South Africa to produce the highest opening partnership. WSB has Proteas at 11/20. The Pakistan batting attack has been struggling while our openers are thriving. This is my best bet for the match.

PGA Tournament of Champs

With no Tiger, no Rose and no Phil, allot of attention will be on Rory but I would be surprised to see him win. The Tournament of champions is a unique tournament with a small field and no cuts. Players need to come out swinging and I predict an upset. Golf is always hard to predict though so instead of just one, these are my top 5. If you are betting, consider backing them all for a win and a place.

  • Xander Scauffele – 22/1
  • Brooks Koepka – 10/1
  • Marc Leishman – 28/1
  • Bryson DeChambeau – 14/1
  • Web Simpson – 22/1

Chiefs vs Sundowns

This game is gonna be tough, and for me the draw is on the cards. I would go one further and predict the 1-1 draw at 90 minutes. Chiefs score an average of 1.2 goals at home while Sundowns show the same number when playing away… at 5/1 from World Sports Betting, its worth a try…

That’s it from me this week, have a good one!

Happy Punting
