Daily Sports Tips – Saturday 22nd December
Adelaide 36ers vs Cairns Taipans
36ers To Cover The Line (-7.5 Points)
Adelaide’s two-game skid came to an end last week in a 10-point win over the Bullets. The victory has kept the 36ers within reach of the Top 4, and they’ll certainly like their chances today against the miserable Taipans. Cairns have now lost 13 straight games after being embarrassed by 11-points against the Kings on Thursday. Do yourself a favor and top up with the 36ers to at the line.
Melbourne City v Melbourne Victory
Victory To Win @ $2.00
It’s not surprising to see the Victory listed as the heavy favourite in this one considering their six-game winning streak. Last week’s 4-2 win over the Roar in Brisbane kept Melbourne just two-points off the ladder leading Perth Glory, and with a strong 6-2-2 record against City as the away favourite, you have to take the $2.00 odds on offer in this one.
Arsenal v Burnley
Arsenal To Win To Nil @ $2.00
The Gunners return home to the Emirates hoping to make up for last week’s 3-2 away loss to Southampton. The loss ended Arsenal’s 12-game unbeaten run, but considering Burnley’s poor form, this is the perfect bounce-back game for Unai Emery’s side. Burnley have scored the fourth-fewest goals in the Premier League this season and haven’t defeated Arsenal since 2008.
