Cape Town - Calling all you sport fans who like to cash in on your sporting knowledge.

Sport24 will be bringing you a daily 'Bet of the Day' tip thanks to our numerous bookmaker friends...


New Zealand, coming off an excellent win over Sri Lanka in their opening Cricket World Cup match, next play minnows Scotland on Tuesday (00:00 SA time).

It's a no-brainer that the Black Caps will win (2/100), but how about a fun "Who will win the toss?" bet?

Leading bookies GrandPlay have both teams at 9/10 to win the toss and decide whether to bat or bowl.

Bet of the Day: Scotland to win the toss @9/10

Outcome: LOST! New Zealand won the toss - and the match!


Chelsea have opened up a seven-point lead atop the English Premiership standings. On Wednesday they host Everton who are languishing in 12th spot - a full 29 points adrift of the log leaders.

Jose Mourinho's men have an impressive record at Stamford Bridge and it's difficult to see them not adding another three points to their tally...

Leading bookies GrandPlay have Chelsea as 1/3 favourites to win, while Everton can be backed at 9/1. The draw is on offer at 17/4.

Bet of the Day: Chelsea to beat Everton @1/3
