Daily Sports Tips – Thursday 5th October
Manawatu vs Counties Manukau
Manawatu To Beat The Line (-2.5 Points)
Manawatu currently sit in second position in the Championship Division of the Rugby Championship and they could very easily have just the single loss on their record. Counties Manukau have improved as the tournament has progressed, but Manawatu should be too strong for their rivals and the line of 2.5 points will not be enough.
Adelaide 36ers vs Melbourne United
Adelaide 36ers To Win @ $2.35
Melbourne United never lived up to the hype in the NBL last season and they won only one of their seven games as away favourites for a clear loss. The Adelaide 36ers may have lost Jerome Randle, but they still have a team that is packed full of quality and they are great value to win this season opener.
Syria vs Australia
Under 1.5 Goals @ $2.88
Syria conceded only eight goals during the second stage of their World Cup Qualification campaign and they are a well-drilled side that is tough to break down. We have seen throughout qualifying the issues that Australia have had in front of goal and this really does look set to be a low-scoring game.
