Sports Diary, Wednesday 2 October


Punters are spoilt for choice on Wednesday with Champions League Football, Rugby World Cup and the first test between India and South Africa.  We take a closer look in our daily Betting Diary.



Liverpool, Barcelona and Chelsea are amongst the big guns in action in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Liverpool are 3/10 at home to beat FK Salzburg and they will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2-0 away loss to Napoli on Matchday 1.  Napoli are 9/20 to extend their lead at the top of the table when they play Genk away.

Group F is very tight at the moment with both matches being drawn in Matchday 1, but Barcelona will fancy getting back to winning ways at 6/10 against Inter-Milan and Dortmund are 19/20 to beat SK Slavia Prague on the road.

In Group G, Leipzig will be looking to make it 2 wins from 2 at home to Lyon and they are 13/20 to do just that and in the other game Zenit are 13/10 at home to Benfica.

Chelsea lost 1-0 at home to Valencia in their opener, they now will be looking to pick up their first points on the road at Lille and they are 11/10 to win the match.  In the other Group H game Ajax are 33/20 to beat Valencia on the road, Valencia priced at 31/20 and the draw 26/10.

There are 3 PSL matches taking place on Wednesday night with Maritzburg United at home to Baroka, Leopards at home to Sundowns and Polokwane at home to Stellenbosch.

We fancy the high flying Polokwane to bag another 3 points at 11/10 and suggest throwing that in the double with Sundowns who are 7/10.  The double works out at a shade over 5/2.

Early risers can catch the start of the first test match between India and South Africa and it is no surprise to see the home team firm favourites at 5/10 with South Africa on offer at 21/4 and the draw priced at 7/2.

There are a host of markets on offer including Virat Kohli to score a 100, yes, at 3/1 but we will go with the more conservative option and take Kohli to score a 50 in the first innings at 12/10.

Faf du Plessis is 3/1 to be the top South African Batsman, but Markram has been in good form of late and we think he may be the pick at 33/10.

After a day off, the Rugby World Cup is back and France and the USA get us started at 09:45 South African time.  There has been a constant flow of money for the USA this week and they currently are (+23.5) points after opening at (+28.5) points.

For those interested in the total points lines it is currently set at 49.5 points and there are many other markets including first try scorer, anytime try scorer and last try scorer.

The second game of the day sees New Zealand up against Canada at 12:15 and this is the biggest handicap of the Tournament so far with New Zealand (-66.5) points. The total points line is understandably much higher at 78.5 and Canada are not expected to contribute to the match scoring with their total points line set at 6.5.
