Daily Sports Tips – Saturday 25th August
Sydney Swans vs. Hawthorn
Sydney Swans 1-39 @ $2.05
There’s plenty on the line for both of these clubs tonight. A Hawks win could potentially see them finish Top 2, while the Swans could also leap from fifth to third. Hawthorn’s form against St. Kilda last week won’t have punters confident, and with the Swans at home, Sydney look like the team to back. Ben Ronke booted seven on the Hawks earlier in the year, and with Buddy Franklin announced to play, the two should wreak havoc on Hawthorn’s questionable back line.
Sydney Roosters vs. Brisbane Broncos
Roosters To Beat The Line (-6.5 Points) @ $1.92
Plain and simple, the Roosters were disgraceful last week. Penalties cost Sydney the points against the Raiders, but fortunately, they’ve got a chance to still finish top of the ladder this week against the Broncos. Wayne Bennett’s side pulled off a big win against the Bunnies last Thursday night, but we’ve seen just how inconsistent Brisbane can be on the road. In case you need further convincing, the Roosters are also 5-2 as the home favourite against the Broncos.
Wolves vs Manchester City
Manchester City To Win Both Halves @ $2.70
City have already stamped their dominance in the early stages of the Premier League season, sitting top of the table with eight goals to their name. On the road last season, Pep Guardiola’s side were particularly impressive on the road, losing just three times in away fixtures. Wolves boast a talented side, but even at home this looks a bit beyond them. Expect City to handle this comfortably.
