Daily Sports Tips – Saturday 24th November
Boston Bruins v Pittsburgh Penguins
Penguins To Win @ $1.95
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen the Penguins in the bottom half of the Eastern Conference standings. Pittsburgh aren’t traveling well away from home, but as we saw during Thursday’s 5-1 win over the Stars, having Sidney Crosby back in the side makes a world of difference. Crosby’s inclusion on the ice means the Pens will have all three of their top centers healthy for the first time in nearly a month, and although the Bruins are tough to beat at home, Pittsburgh will see this as the perfect chance to turn their season around.
Melbourne United v Sydney Kings
United to Beat The Line (-2.5 Points) @ $1.90
United’s eight-point win over Brisbane last week kept them in touch with ladder leaders Perth. Melbourne have won their last three games, but more impressively have won eight straight against the Kings dating back to 2016. There’s not a lot of value in the head-to-head price here, so take Melbourne at the line. United are 11-1-7 as the home favourite.
England v Australia
England 1-12 @ $2.50
The Aussies face a huge battle in the early hours of Sunday morning against England. Michael Chieka has announced David Pocock is fit to play but he doesn’t expect centre Kurtley Beale to be available for the test. The return of Israel Folau is encouraging for the Aussies, however England have their own secret weapon fit and ready to go from the bench in the form of Manu Tuilaga. Given Australia’s run away from home recently, a win looks unlikely.
