Elton’s Best Bets 08/01/2018


This week we will see SA take on Pakistan in the 3rd test and after the results of the last 2, it’s a pretty easy one to predict… The Proteas are on fire at the moment and our test team looks fantastic.

World Sports Betting has them priced up at 7/20 to win the test which I think is a pretty safe bet. However, for the real value let’s look at the exotic markets this week… My bet of choice has to be on Dale Steyn to be the top SA Bowler. Currently at 5/2 with World Sports Betting, this is a great value bet as Dale has been getting increasingly better of late.

Moving on the the international football scene, Chelsea takes on Newcastle on Saturday and this is one I’m looking forward to. Chelsea are fair favourites and their home record should see them win this. However, a market that caught my eye is the total goals market. Chelsea scores an average of 1.6 goals at home while Newcastle has an average away number of only 0.8. However, when these 2 meet, the average goals scored goes up to 3.8… I guess they bring out the best in each other 😊

My favourite bet for this game must be the matchbet + totals option and I’m going to go bold and suggest the over 4.5 and Chelsea bet at 3/1. I think this will be a high scoring game…

Lastly, we have some exciting Rugby with Leinster taking on Toulouse, Bath taking on the Wasps and Scarlets taking on Leicester in the Heineken Cup….  I would suggest a treble on Toulouse, Bath and Leicester. A great bet at 15/1!

Stay safe and happy punting!
