WGM’s Best Weekend Bets: Fri 22 to Sun 24 April 2016

Written by Ben Blaschke

Another busy weekend of sport sees us off to the USA tonight where the NBA Playoffs are in full swing. Cleveland has a stranglehold on their first round series against the Pistons, holding a 2-0 lead ahead of their first trip to Detroit. This promises to be another grinding affair with the Cavaliers unlikely to repeat their 20 three-pointers from Game 2 on a court they are less familiar with. We’re leaning towards the Unders bet here.

Saturday sees a vital Chinese Super League clash between battling Guangzhou R&F and league leaders Jiangsu Shuntian. Guangzhou will need to resolve their troubles in front of goal if they hope to take something from this clash, having hit the back of the net just twice in five outings. We don’t like their chances though – Jiangsu to win.

Finally we’re heading back to Anfield where red hot Liverpool host EPL battlers Newcastle. The Magpies are coming off a couple of strong performances in their past two outings including a 1-1 draw with Manchester City, but even with former Reds manager Rafa Benitez at the helm this looks like a huge task for them. Reds with a handicap.
