Daily Sports Tips – Saturday 10th September
Stan Wawrinka vs Kei Nishikori
Wawrinka to win @ $2.10
Neither Stan Wawrinka nor Kei Nishikori were expected to progress past their quarterfinal matches at the US Open, but each was impressive on their way to this morning’s head-to-head. Nishikori dug deep to end the campaign of world number 2 Andy Murray in five sets, while Wawrinka has it slightly easier in four sets with Juan Martin del Potro. Nishikori’s performance was all class, but he may have played his final two days ago and Stan, who has been here before, is worth consideration once more as an outsider.
Sydney Swans vs GWS Giants
Swans to win 1-39 @ $2.10
Tonight will see the first ever post-season Sydney Derby and while many are tipping a blow-out in the favour of the Swans, there’s not a lot to say that will be the case. The Giants have, for the most part, had the number of their cross-town rivals recently and that is sure to count for a lot in this match. There is also nothing expected of the Giants first-up. The Swans will probably win, but not by a lot and they subsequently represent great value at $2.10 to post a margin of 1-39.
Melbourne Storm vs North Queensland Cowboys
Storm to win @ $1.82
Minor premiers the Melbourne Storm meeting reigning premiers the Cowboys at home tonight. The Storm have undoubtedly been the benchmark of the NRL this season and their finals experience should count for plenty in their quest for another appearance on the first Sunday of October. A Johnathan Thurston-led team can never be underrated by the Storm, at home and in current form should be too good.
Manchester United vs Manchester City
United to win @ $2.38
The 172nd edition of the Manchester Derby will take place at Old Trafford tonight, and there is typically plenty to value to be had. Both teams are yet to taste anything through their first three games this campaign, but City will be without prolific striker Sergio Aguero for this match and could struggle, particularly away. United are worth consideration as favourites, considering the depth of their roster and goal-scoring potential.
