Daily Sports Tips – Thursday 8th March


Sacramento Kings vs New Orleans Pelicans
2.00pm AEDT

New Orleans Pelicans To Beat The Line (-5.5 Points)

The New Orleans Pelicans have an excellent record against the line when playing on the road this season. They have covered the line in 22 of their 34 games away from home this season and that record improves to 11-2 when they take on a side with a losing record. Taking on the Sacramento Kings has been a profitable betting play.

Steve Johnson vs Daniil Medvedev
5.00am AEDT

Steve Johnson To Win @ $1.91

The market can’t split these two teams, but on hardcourts I give the clear edge to Steve Johnson. His service record is significantly better than that of Medvedev and that will prove to be a big advantage on what are generally quick courts at Indian Wells.

St George Illawarra Dragons vs Brisbane Broncos
8.05pm AEDT

Brisbane Broncos To Win @ $2.05

This is a game that I think that the market has wrong and I have the Brisbane Broncos marked as favourites. The Broncos have won 11 of the past 12 games played between these two sides and Wayne Bennett-coached sides are generally fast starters to the season. The $2.05 for a Broncos win is well and truly over the NRL odds.
