  1. 0.5pt e/w F. du Plessis to be top tournament batsman @ 33/1 with William Hill (1/4 odds 1-4) 0.5pt e/w G. Maxwell to be top tournament batsman @ 100/1 with Bet365 (1/4 odds 1-4) Both of these men had good series when coming up against each other in South Africa and I fancy them to carry on that form. Faf du Plessis topped his side’s runscorer chart vs Australia and you’d think he’s guaranteed a bat in every match he plays here. As captain he won’t lose his place and at number three he should get plenty of balls to face on more than one occasion. He’s one of many that come in to this
  2. 0.5pt e/w J. Bumrah to be top tournament bowler @ 20/1 with Bet365 (1/4 odds 1-4) 0.5pt e/w D. Steyn to be top tournament bowler @ 33/1 with Paddy Power (1/4 odds 1-4) I’m confident that India and South Africa will go far in this tournament so it’s logical to go with bowlers from their sides at prices I believe offer value. Jasprit Bumrah comes in to this off the back of a successful Asia Cup – taking six wickets and doing well when given the ball in the latter overs. The expectation on this India side will be huge but Bumrah has enough talent around him in the bowling attack to ensu
  3. 1pt India to win Group 2 @ 13/8 with Stan James This price looks huge. I’m not sure it needs much justification as they come here following another Asia Cup win and with a side packed full of talent. They’ve been consistently good in T20s for a while now and their side are more than used to the pressure their nation will place upon their shoulders. Australia have just beat South Africa in South Africa but their bowling attack, Faulkner apart, concerns me – they lack a quality spinner and potentially another pace bowler. New Zealand look short of a batsman and a bowler and Pakistan could b
  4. 1pt South Africa to win tournament @ 11/2 with Skybet 1pt South Africa to win Group 1 @ 15/8 with BetVictor South Africa have all of the ingredients to go far in this competition. I think they’ve been put in the easier of the two groups so should be more than able to swat aside a transitional Sri Lanka, a West Indies side without some of their big names and an England team who they’ve just beaten 2-0 at home. Nine of South Africa’s probable starting eleven have IPL experience so these conditions shouldn’t be a problem. In de Villiers, Amla/de Kock and du Plessis they have a powerful
  5. An Australia win meant that the series score outright lost. Rabada struck with at the death to deny Tahir the number one wicket-taker spot for his side but the dead-heat still brings in a profit. du Plessis managed to bring in his outright although Miller did make it a bit too close for comfort. All of this, minus the one point loser in today's game, means a healthy final profit of +14.63 points.
  6. Chelsea vs PSG: 1pt Both teams to score @ 3/4 with Betfair Both of these sides should go in to tonight’s game looking to score as one Chelsea goal puts PSG on the brink and vice versa. This is the third season in a row that the sides have met in the knockout stages and both sides have found the net on three of the four previous occasions. Chelsea are unbeaten in their last ten at home and in eight of those games they’ve scored and conceded at least one. PSG have found the back of the net in eight of their last nine away ties. Chelsea are still missing Terry and Zouma whilst
  7. Zenit vs Benfica: 1pt Zenit to qualify @ 2/1 with BoyleSports 1pt Zenit to beat Benfica @ 21/20 with Ladbrokes 1pt Both teams to score @ Evens with Paddy Power I rarely take three bets in one game but it could have been even more – two others narrowly missed the cut. I think the bookmakers have underestimated Zenit in this match and have overestimated Benfica’s patchwork defence. The hosts come in to this game without Javi Garcia but it’s the visitors who have the bigger problems to deal with. Benfica are without Luisao, Lopez, Jardel, Cesar and Almeida and only Lindelof of
  8. Great work on the Shahzad bets, Fader
  9. Vfl Wolfsburg vs KAA Gent: 1pt Both teams to score @ 3/4 with Betfair These two sides played out a five-goal thriller in the first game and I think there’ll be goals again tonight. Wolfsburg have Jung out but should be able to cover adequately but they’ll be sweating over the fitness of key players Draxler and Kruse. I’d imagine at least one, if not both, will be risked if it is touch-and-go but, either way, they should have enough to progress. Mitrovic will be a big miss for Gent as the Serbian has been an ever-present for them up until now. The form of these sides are at oppos
  10. It looks as though Russell is free to play, that's a big boost for the West Indies. Like BMD, I'll be getting involved after the South Africa - Australia decider.
  11. 3rd ODI: 1pt G. Maxwell to be top Australian runscorer at 8/1 with Skybet We go in to the third and final T20 in good shape as all three outrights are still very much alive. We're effectively on South Africa to win the match at 13/8, du Plessis leads his side's runs chart and Tahir is a good performance away from topping the bowlers'. Like Durban, past results indicate that wickets should fall. In the two T20s and one ODI here since the start of 2015, fourty of the sixty wickets fell with only one of the six innings seeing less than five bastmen sent packing. This makes the 8/1
  12. Rabada shared the top-the wicket-taker prize. Now +8.25 points for the series with 3 bets unsettled going to Cape Town.
  13. 2nd T20: 1pt K. Rabada to be top South African bowler @ 7/2 with BoyleSports I backed Rabada in this market in the first T20 and I'm more than happy to do so again at this price. He picked up two wickets in that game and should follow that up with another solid performance at his home ground. South Africa played England here in T20 and ODI matches earlier this year and Rabada chipped in with six wickets over the course of those two games. Familiar surroundings, a rich run of form and a shaky Australian line-up are enough for me to give the youngster another chance to top his sid
  14. Watford vs Leicester City: 1pt Over 2.5 goals @ 5/4 Betfair Leicester travel to Watford for the Saturday evening game hoping to extend or maintain the lead they had before the start of the day. Watford come in to this match in inconsistent form. They’ve won, drawn and lost a couple of their previous six games and have only managed to score four, conceding four too. They’ve had a tough run of games lately against Chelsea, Man. United and Spurs but did well to come away with a win at Crystal Palace amongst those. This game isn’t much easier but I do think there is reason for them
