Daily Sports Tips – Thursday 19th January
Indiana Pacers vs Sacramento Kings
Sacramento Kings To Win @ $1.88
The market suggests that there is very little between these two sides, but I have the Sacramento Kings priced as clear favourites. The Kings have won 19 of their past 30 games as home favourites for a profit, while the Indiana Pacers have generally underperformed away from home and have won just nine of their past 30 games as away underdogs.
Pablo Carreno Busta vs Kyle Edmund
Pablo Carreno Busta
This is set to be one of the most competitive matches of the second round and Pablo Carreno Busta represents good value at his current quote. Busta finished 2016 with a superior hold/break percentage on hard court to Edmund and the Englishmen has not looked particularly comfortable during the Australian summer to date.
Daria Gavrilova vs Ana Konjuh
Ana Konjuh To Win @ $1.91
Daria Gavrilova managed to get through her opening round clash with Naomi Broady, but it is fair to say that she did not play particularly impressive tennis. Ana Konjuh made the quarter-finals at the US Open and is one of the most exciting young players on the WTA Tour. Konjuh would be a clear favourite if this match was not being played in Australia.
Adelaide 36ers vs Brisbane Bullets
Adelaide 36ers To Beat The Line (-8.5 Points)
The Adelaide 36ers have been the form team in the NBL over the past month and their winning run started with an emphatic victory over the Brisbane Bullets. Adelaide are the best offensive side in the NBL and they have covered the line in seven of their past 11 games as home favourites for a clear profit.
