Cricket: New Zealand v South Africa

South Africa cricket
Semi-final hex: South Africa

The Cricket World Cup is drawing to a close after what seems like months of one-sided games.

The final three games are expected to be far more exciting than the quarter-finals which pitched over-matched sides against the big guns.

The first semi-final, which takes place in the early hours of Tuesday morning, ensures that there will be at least one new finalist in Sunday’s showpiece.

South Africa and New Zealand have played in nine World Cup semi-finals between them and lost the lot.

The sentiment will be for New Zealand, who are marginally odds against. The neutrals will hope that they get through as it could well set up a final against rivals and hosts Australia.

South Africa have had their troubles at the top of the order and do not be surprised if the new-ball partnership of Trent Boult and Tim Southee make an early breakthrough.

However, South Africa have a better pedigree and have won 36 of the 61 previous One-Day International meetings. They have plenty of match-winners and at least one of them should step up when it matters.

Bet: South Africa to win @ 1.72

Basketball: Brooklyn Nets v Boston Celtics

We have to take a trip across the pond for our next sport selection. The Boston Celtics and the Brooklyn Nets are in the midst of a classic battle for the final NBA playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Celtics (30-39) are half a game behind eighth-placed Charlotte after losing to Detroit 105-97 on Sunday, while Brooklyn (29-39) is a game out of eighth place.

Boston has lost three straight and the Nets won their last five and it is worth taking a chance that both runs to come to an end this evening.

The Nets won 123-111 at Indiana on Saturday but the Celtics have won two of three meetings this season, including an 89-91 win at Brooklyn on January 7.

Boston will miss guard Isiaih Thomas (back), who has sat out the last seven games and this is significant. Hwever, the Nets are odds-on to win, despite having lost seven of the last 10 meetings with the Celtics, and are no certainties. We’ll take the four-point dogs, more in hope than confidence

Bet: Boston Celtics +4 @ 1.95

John takes spotlight

As the Jumps season draws to a close, it is understandable that the fare is very much bread-and-butter.

However, there are a couple of good betting heats each day and we start the week with Shy John (Taunton 4:50), who appears to have a fair chance in the C&S Electrical Wholesale Handicap Chase.

Unseated a week ago at the same track, the multiple point/hunter chase winner had hardly put a foot wrong at Ludlow previously, when chasing home a subsequent winner.

The danger is Barton Heather, who found one too good at Exeter last time, having made a winning start over fences at Uttoxeter previously. However, there is no guarantee she will handle the quicker ground.

Bet: Shy John (Taunton 4:50)
