Daily Sports Tips – Wednesday, October 3

Chicago Cubs vs Colorado Rockies (10:10am)
Under 7.5 Runs ($1.80)

The MLB Postseason is underway and a thrilling wildcard game between the Cubs and Rockies will take place this morning. The Cubs were pipped on the line by the Brewers in the NL Central yesterday, but they have been a strong and consistent outfit all season and look capable of a competitive run through the postseason. The Rockies were also just beaten in the race toward topping the NL West by the Dodgers and do face a tough task in Chicago. This is sure to be a tight fixture and a low-scorer looks likely.

Lokomotiv Moscow vs FC Schalke (2:55am Thursday)
Draw ($3.10)

We’re set for an intriguing Champions League fixture when Lokomotiv Moscow and Shalke square off in Russia tomorrow morning and I think a draw looms as a potentially lucrative betting play. Shalke shared the points at home with a decent Porto outfit on matchday 1, while Lokomotiv weathered a baptism of fire when they conceded three goals on the road to league mainstays Galatasaray. Returning home and already desperate for points, Lokomotiv are good enough to draw with their classy opponents.

PSV Eindhoven vs Inter Milan (5am Thursday)
Inter to Win ($2.30)

Dutch champions PSV have their work cut out for them when they host Italian giants Inter Milan in the Champions League early tomorrow morning. Inter opened their account in the best way possible with a win over the in-form Spurs, while PSV were given a real wake-up call in the form of a 4-0 trashing by Barcelona, who had also suffered a red card. Inter can keep their undefeated campaign alive by winning.
