Back Kylian Mbappe to score & France to beat Iceland

2018 was a mixed bag for France as they won the World Cup and then failed to qualify for the UEFA Nations League Finals, but if you had asked Les Bleus at the start of the year would they have settled for that they would have probably bitten your arm off! They will now be expected to launch a major assault on the European Championship next year and they made a flying start to qualifying as they stormed to a 4-1 victory against Moldova last Friday night. So can they make it two wins in two games?

Next up for Les Bleus is a home outing against Iceland. The visitors caused a major rumble on the international scene when they dumped England out of Euro 2016 and introduced the world to the ‘thunderclap’, but since then they have done very little of note. They did qualify for the 2018 World Cup, where they managed to hold Argentina to a 1-1 draw, but prior to last Friday’s 2-0 qualifying win in Andorra they had gone 15 games without a win, losing nine times. So with the rot stopped by that win over the Andorrans, can Iceland record a positive result against the world champions?

Iceland did manage to hold France to a 2-2 draw when these two teams let last October, and Les Bleus did field a strong side that night, but that was a friendly match and this competitive fixture is a whole different ball game. France should have too much for the visitors on Monday night and I believe Kylian Mbappe will play a key role for his nation. The Paris St Germain striker ended a three-game goalless run with a strike against Moldova last time out and he has now scored 10 goals in his last 10 appearances for club and country. That is a run of form I simply cannot ignore here, so I am backing Mbappe to find the back of the net as France claim all three points.

Bet Of The Day: Tuesday, March 26

Back Spain -3 to beat Malta

 2018 was a disappointing year for Spain. The sudden departure of coach Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the World Cup dealt their campaign a major setback and although they did make it through to the knockout stage they suffered a shock last-16 defeat at the hands of Russia. Things did not get much better for them in the Nations League either. The Spaniards raced out of the blocks by following up a 2-1 win in England with a 6-0 demolition of Croatia, but they wrapped up the brief campaign with back-to-back defeats and that meant they failed to qualify for the finals of this new competitions.

Spain will now look to lift themselves and put in a strong qualifying campaign for Euro 2020 and although it was hardly convincing stuff, they did open up with a 2-1 win over Norway thanks to a late penalty from Sergio Ramos. They will have their sights set on maintaining their perfect start when they continue their Group F schedule on Tuesday night, and they could not have asked for a much simpler fixture to have at this time as they try to build up some momentum.

Malta also made a winning start as they battled past the Faroe Islands, but not even the most ardent of supporters will be expecting anything other than a loss here. And if they are being brutally honest, they will be happy just to see their team keep the score down. This is a team that has shipped five goals against the likes of Finland, Kosovo and Scotland over the past 18 months, so even though Spain did not run riot against the Norwegians you have to believe they will go on a scoring spree here. I expect the Spaniards to win this one by at least four goals, so backing them with a -3 handicap is a solid bet for this Euro 2020 qualifier.

Bet Of The Day: Wednesday, March 27

Back Aaron Finch to top score for Australia and Australia to beat Pakistan

Australia took another big step to an impressive series win over Pakistan on Sunday as they romped to an eight wicket win over their hosts. Batting first, Pakistan were teetering at 112/4, but a fantastic century from Mohammad Rizwan helped the side onto a rather modest score of 284/7 in their 50 overs. Australia came into bat and looked on top from the start as they put 209 runs on the board before a wicket fell. Usman Khawaja (88) looked very good, but captain Aaron Finch stole the show with a magnificent 153 not out that featured 11 4’s and six 6’s to help the Aussies onto 285/2, meaning they were able to claim a superb eight wicket win with 13 balls to spare as they walked to victory.

Now, Australia will be looking to secure a series win by going 3-0 up in the five-match series, and we think that will be the result in the final match, with Pakistan struggling to make the most out of home advantage so far. However, backing the Aussies in the outright winner market sees them at odds-on at 1/2, meaning you will need to add something to the bet in order to sweeten the pot odds-wise. With this in mind, backing captain Aaron Finch to top scorer the Aussies in an Australian win gives odds of 4/1, which we think is great value especially when considering the fact Finch has top scored for the away side in two games out of two. In the first ODI, Finch notched a supreme 116 before then scoring another match winning century (153 from 143), and he has only been removed once in two innings as Pakistan have struggled to contain him. Finch had struggled previously, but the captain has come good in some style of late, and we think he will help the side to go 3-0 up with another top score for his team. 

 

Bet Of The Day: Thursday, March 28

Back Rohit Sharma & AB de Villiers to score over 3 combined sixes

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) were blown away by reigning-champions Chennai Super Kings in the opening match of the 2019 Indian Premier League to see the side off to the worst possible start. RCB were skittled for just 70 runs in 17.1 overs as captain Virat Kohli (6), Moeen Ali (9)and AB de Villiers (9) all failed to really get going in the match as Harbhajan Singh’s spin accounted for all three of the batsmen. In the end, the side were comfortably beaten by their opponents, with RCB now having played one and lost one. Next opponents Mumbai Indians (MI) suffered a similar fate as they too lost, although they were involved in a high scoring game as Delhi Capitals (213/6) beat the MI (176) by 37 runs. Ultimately, it was the Capital’s Pant (78 not out) that won the match for the side as MI’s batsmen struggled to score runs in a game that quickly got away from them. 

However, in the match at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on Thursday, we are predicting slightly more batting friendly conditions than RCB had to face in their first game, while MI will want to improve with the bat after they were undone in their opening encounter. Indeed, the big hitting talent of the Royals’s de Villiers and Mumbai’s Sharma should be on full show in this one, with the pair usually in the runs for their sides. Admittedly, the two struggled in the opening matches of the IPL, but we feel that they will return with vengeance as they look to secure a first win for their sides. Bookmaker William Hill are currently offering odds of 4/1 on Sharma and de Villiers hitting over three combined 6’s in the game, and we feel this is something that the latter is likely to manage on his own if he gets going. In 2018, de Villiers smashed 30 6’s in the competition, the sixth-most in the tournament, while Sharma managed a more modest 12 in that time. However, Mumbai Indians’ bowlers were smashed for over 200 runs in their last game, and if a side does not bowl the right length to de Villiers and gives him space to hit through the line of the ball, then there will be fireworks. When adding in the factor that this bet is not solely based upon the fortune of just one batsman, we think it provides good value.

Sports Betting Tips Guide

Here at Bettingpro, we pride ourselves on having a wealth of knowledge that spans across an array of sports. Whether it is football and rugby, or cricket and boxing, the experts at Bettingpro are not picky, and so we have created the Bet of the Day, where our tipsters find the best bets from that day across any particular sport. 

Daily tips across several sports

Bettingpro's writers cover a huge amount of sports every single day but, with so many different matches happening across football, tennis, darts, rugby, cricket and many other sports, the best bets of the day can get lost. This means that the diamond of a bet in League One could get buried under the tips for Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, The Championship and so on. Therefore, we endeavour to bring you the best bets all in one place, giving you the ultimate one stop place for the best bets on that particular day. 

These best bets will generally come form a lower profile football or tennis match, while they may differ from the opinions espoused elsewhere on the site. 

When is Bet of the Day posted?

Our best bet will be posted as soon as it becomes available each day, The staff on that day will pick their best bet and post it right here every morning, giving you plenty of time to back the tip that day. 

Giving the reader confidence in our tips

This is because the object of the Bet of the Day is to be something of a banker, a selection that can be taken with confidence based on the opinion of our writers and the statistical evidence. It may not always be a fantastic priced selection but the aim is to provide a winner and thus ensure a profit at the end of the week.

These picks can be taken on their own as singles or they can be used to bulk up any multiples which Bettingpro.com's readers have already selected. They may well actually be bets that readers have already considered but just with some reasons that maybe help to reinforce the selection.

However, that is not to say that the Bet of the Day will be a real odds-on choice or will have no value. Our writers are punters themselves and wouldn't ever recommend backing a 1/10 shot or a multiple involving several short priced favourites. We want to provide our readers with selections that will ensure long term profits and will not play into the hands of the bookmakers.

Sometimes it may even be a bookmaker offer that is selected as Bet of the Day as frequently in their desire to entice customers the big bookmakers often take trading risks and offer ridiculously large odds and we feel that it is our duty to the readers to inform them of these opportunities. An example of this was at the Cheltenham Festival when Coral offered Evens on Sprinter Sacre. It was an obvious choice and after featuring as our Bet of the Day Coral were inundated with punters trying to back the selection. The firm stuck with the price but their website crashed when Sprinter Sacre romped home and everyone rushed to get their bets!

The aim is to back more winners than losers!

That is just one example of a successful Bet of the Day, but if you check the column every day you will see winners. Unlike some sites we don't shirk from reality and will analyse the selection from the previous day and we are more than happy to admit if we get it wrong (everyone makes mistakes). However, we at Bettingpro.com are confident in our writers abilities and believe that anyone who follows Bet of the Day for any length of time will be enjoying profits, not bemoaning losses.

In addition to Bet of the Day, we also provide an Offer of the Day column, where we look at how best to use the money back specials running on a particular sporting event. This could be a refund on a First Goalscorer in a Premier League football or money back on a final frame decider in a snooker match. In this we will try to not only explain our reasons why the bet itself is a good one but also why having the insurance or enhanced odds from the offer makes it an unmissable bet. This is a slightly bigger risk than the Bet of the Day but the reward is, of course, much better, with some fantastic odds available at times.
