Daily Sports Tips – Wednesday, August 29

Chicago Cubs vs New York Mets (10:10am)
Cubs to Win ($1.85)

The Cubs will host the Mets this morning and are primed for another big performance at Wrigley field. The Cubs have been in a devastating mood recently and put ten runs on the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday before delivering the same team a 9-0 thrashing on Monday. They continued to impress with a tough win over the Mets yesterday and there’s no reason why they can’t give the Chicago faithful more to cheer about today.

Camila Georgi vs Venus Williams (12am Thursday)
Williams 2-1 ($4)

Popular veteran Venus Williams will meet Italy’s Camila Georgi in the second round of the US Open tonight and will need to be at her best to secure passage into the third round. Williams was faced with a tough first round opponent in the form of Svetlana Kuznetsova and was pushed to three, but she iced the match nicely in the final set. Georgi dropped only five games in a comfortable straight-sets win over American Whitney Osuigwe but clearly, faces a big step up in class tonight. I am confident that Williams will win this fixture, but Georgi is good enough to take a set.

Daily Three-Leg Multi 
Yankees, Red Sox, Indians All to Win
Combined Odds of $2.88

There’s plenty of MLB action to take in this morning and a nice price on hand for three clear favourites, the Yankees, Red Sox and Indians all to win their respect games coupled in a three-leg multi. The Yankees have made some decent inroads in the AL East recently and enter their game with the lowly White Sox with an 8-2 record through their ten most-recent appearances. The Sox still have a commanding lead in the same division and should prove too good for the Marlins at Fenway. The Indians are 13 wins clear of the Twins in the AL Central and can make that 14 by beating the Minnesota side at home.
