Daily Sports Tips – Monday 9th January
Malek Jaziri vs Diego Schwartzman
Diego Schwartzman To Win @ $2.10
Diego Schwartzman finished 2016 with some excellent stats on hard-courts and his hold/break percentage is in excess of 100 percent. Jaziri has big problems breaking serve on hardcourts and he doesn’t have a big enough serve to make up for this. Schwartzman is a great bet to cruise to a comfortable victory.
Brisbane Bullets vs Perth Wildcats
Over 162.5 Points
On their day the Brisbane Bullets and the Perth Wildcats are two of the best shooting sides in the NBL and this is likely to be a fairly entertaining game. Games played at the Brisbane Convention Centre this season have generally finished in the over and the line of 162.5 points is not particularly large.
Sydney Sixers vs Melbourne Renegades
Melbourne Renegades To Win @ $1.92
The Melbourne Renegades were very poor against the Melbourne Stars on Saturday, but they are a much better team than that performance suggests and the Sydney Sixers batting line-up is much weaker than that of the Stars. Sydney struggle to win in front of their home fans and their bowling lacks depth.
Yen-Hsun Lu vs Karen Khachanov
Karen Khachanov To Win @ $1.91
Karen Khachanov is a player to watch in 2017 after a strong season on the Challenger Tour last year. He finished 2016 with a hold/break percentage of 106.6 and that is clearly superior to that of Yen-Hsun Lu. The court at the Auckland Open generally favours big servers and Khachanov will be very tough to beat.
