Washington Capitals vs Pittsburgh Penguins
11.00am AEDT

60 Minutes Betting: Capitals To Win @ $2.05

The Penguins looked on the cusp of a Wild Card spot prior to Monday’s overtime loss to the Ducks. Now, they head on the road to face the Stanley Cup champions, who by the way, are riding a five-game winning streak. Pittsburgh have come up short in their last four visits to Washington, giving reason for the long odds today. With a healthy lineup and goals coming with ease, you can’t back against the Capitals right now.

Melbourne Renegades v Perth Scorchers
6.15pm AEDT

Usman Qadir Top Wicket Taker @ $5.00

The Renegades open their season a little shorthanded with both Aaron Finch and Marcus Harris out of the squad. That leaves Cameron White in charge of the run-scoring against Perth’s elite bowling attack, but he’ll rest a little easier knowing Shaun Marsh and Cameron Bancroft aren’t in the side just yet. The man to watch tonight will be Scorchers all-rounder Usman Qadir, who has so far taken 11 wickets in his 13 T20 matches. The 25-year old leg spinner should make the most of an unpredictable wicket at Marvel Stadium.

Cairns Taipans v Sydney Kings
6.50pm AEDT

Kings to Cover The Line (-4.5 Points) @ $1.85

It’s a huge game for the Kings tonight as they look to creep a little closer to Perth atop the NBL table. Now riding a four-game winning streak, Sydney enter this one as the favourites after polishing off Illawarra by 15-points last week. Cairns, meanwhile, are in the midst of an 11-game losing streak, and even home-court advantage won’t be enough to derail the Kings title hopes. Sydney are 6-3 on the road over the last 12 months and enter this game as the top shooting side in the league.
