Daily Sports Tips – Sunday 16th December
New York Jets v Houston Texans
Jets at the Line (+6.5 Points)
The 4-9 Jets have been a nightmare for punters this season, so why are we tipping them? Simple, the Texans haven’t traveled to New York since 2012. For a dome team, the cold weather could easily throw off an offence as methodical as Houston’s, which should keep this game close. Quarterback Deshaun Watson was sacked five-times last week in a loss against the Colts, so if the Jets pass rush can show up to play, who knows how this game might turn out.
Illawarra Hawks vs Sydney Kings
Hawks To Win @ $2.35
Don’t look now but the Hawks have strung together three-straight wins. Illawarra are also 3-1 in home games this season, which has them a little over the odds today against the second-place Kings. Sydney face a tough weekend playing ladder leaders Perth on Friday night, so it remains to be seen how they pull up for this game. A Hawks upset is certainly on the cards.
Liverpool vs Manchester United
Draw @ $4.20
This epic rivalry always draws plenty of interest right around the world, but recent history shows it hasn’t always lived up to the hype. Four of the last five meetings between Liverpool and United have finished all square, making the draw a nice value play.
