Daily Sports Tips – Friday 9th February
Los Angeles Lakers vs Oklahoma City Thunder
Oklahoma City To Beat The Line (-3.5 Points)
The Los Angeles Lakers may have the home-court advantage, but they will struggle against a quality Oklahoma City Thunder outfit. The Thunder have won eight of their past ten games against the Lakers and they have covered the line in seven of these wins. The line of 3.5 points is not anywhere near enough.
Melbourne United vs New Zealand Breakers
New Zealand Breakers To Win @ $3
Melbourne United are in outstanding form and they have won 11 of their past 12 games in the NBL, but the New Zealand Breakers are a side that they have had issues with. The Breakers have won five of their past ten games as away underdogs and more impressive is the fact that they have won six of their past nine fixtures against Melbourne in this scenario.
GWS Giants vs Carlton
GWS Giants To Beat The Line (+7.5 Points)
The GWS Giants gave Melbourne a genuine scare last weekend and they are more than capable of beating this Carlton outfit. Carlton struggled badly to score points against Collingwood in the opening game of the season and the Giants are a great bet to beat the line in what will be a low-scoring affair.
Perth Wildcats vs Cairns Taipans
Perth Wildcats To Beat The Line (-10.5 Points)
This is the biggest mismatch of the weekend in the NBL and the Perth Wildcats really should prove too strong for the Cairns Taipans. The Wildcats have won 12 of their past 16 games as home favourites and they have covered the line in each one of these wins. The Taipans have won only one of their past six games and their record on the road this season is putrid.
