Daily Sports Tips – Friday, July 27

North Queensland Cowboys vs Newcastle Knights (6pm)
Knights to Win ($2.60)

Its been a less-than-ideal season for the Cowboys and they face another tough assignment in the in-form Knights this evening. This is not how the club would have hoped to send off future immortal Johnathan Thurston and they are a live chance of finishing the season last. The Knights on the other hand have exceeded all expectations and remain a chance at finals football, having won their last two games. They have been buoyed by the return of Mitchell Pearce and will be buoyed further by the return of Kalyn Ponga tonight.

Essendon Bombers vs Sydney Swans (7:50pm)
Swans to Win ($2)

The Bombers and Swans square off at Etihad tonight, in a game that could dictate the finals chances of both teams. For the Dons, it’s all about keeping their slim chances of making the eight alive, while a loss here for the Swans could see them fall out of the top four. Sydney were absolutely atrocious on their way to a loss at the hands of the Suns last weekend, but they were in great touch prior to that and will do everything in their power to respond to that result. Lance Franklin has enjoyed playing against the Dons previously and has kicked 68 goals in 15 matches.

Canterbury Bulldogs vs Wests Tigers (7:55pm)
Tigers to Win (Double your Winnings)

Wests are playing with renewed vigour and they can carry their winning run of form past the Bulldogs this evening. The return of club legend Benji Marshall and more recently, Robbie Farah has done something positive to the Tigers’ locker room and they really do look like a club that can challenge for a finals berth. The Dogs have been down and out for close to the entire season and Mad Monday cannot come quickly enough. The Tigers are pretty short in head-to-head betting here, but you can take advantage of double your winnings in a unique market here at Neds.

Daily Three-Leg Multi 
Angels, Yankees, Red Sox All to Win
Combined Odds of $3.30

There’s plenty of exciting MLB action to be taken in today and plenty of value in today’s three-leg multi! The Angels put the White Sox to the sword in a big way yesterday and can repeat that effort and result this morning. The Yankees have found a decent run of form and can continue past the Royals in front of their home fans. The Sox will look to open a bigger gap at the top of the AL East by beating the Twins.
