Live Sports Profit bets

Just got my email from the Live Sports Profit service through with some bets for this weekend. I’m still waiting on my Football Betting Data one.

There are a couple of recommended bets:

Rugby League, NRL – St George Dragons -4 points to beat New Zealand Warriors

Event: Rugby League, Australia NRL – St George Dragons v New Zealand Warriors
Date: Sat 25th Aug 25th – 8.30am – Live on Premier Sports
Tip: St George Dragons (-4 pts) to beat New Zealand Warriors
Odds: 10/11 (1.91) @ Stan James or 8/11 (1.73) BetFred, Ladbrokes
Stake: 0.5 point

I’m steering clear of this one because last time I tried placing one of their recommended bets on Australian Rugby League, I ended up losing, even though their bet was apparently a winner. I think the problem is I don’t fully understand the bet.

However, something I do understand is this one:

Premier League – Swansea v West Ham – Live on Sky Sports 2

Event: Football, Premier League – Swansea v West Ham
Date:   Sat 25th Aug – 12.45pm – Live on Sky Sports 2
Tip: Swansea v West Ham – Under 2.5 Goals
Odds: 17/20 (1.85) @ Bet365, Bet Victor, Unibet, Panbet
Stake: 0.5 point

Although I’m surprised that the recommendation is to go under, given that Swansea scored 5 last weekend and they are at home for this game. Nonetheless, I’m sticking with their recommendation and have placed a £4 at Bet365 at odds of 4/5 – I’ve stuck with a small stake because I’m not convinced about the bet and also I’m operating on a smallish budget at the moment.
