Daily Sports Tips – Saturday 29th December


Sydney Kings vs Brisbane Bullets
1.50pm AEDT

Kings to Cover The Line (-3.5 Points)

Sydney leapfrogged Perth last week to claim the top spot on the NBL ladder, and they’ll be looking to distance themselves this weekend with a handy home game against the up and down Brisbane Bullets. As their 2-2 record as the away underdog suggests, the Bullets are a chance in this game, but three straight losses to the Kings dating back to 2017 makes Sydney the side worth backing.

Newcastle Jets v Adelaide United
6.00pm AEDT

Draw @ $3.25

It’s been a rough month for Adelaide losing back-to-back games prior to last weekend’s draw against Western Sydney. Likewise, it’s been a rollercoaster December for Newcastle, but their 2-1 win over Central Coast last week was enough to place the Jets as favourites in this one. Even so, Newcastle are 2-1-4 as the home favourite against Adelaide, while United are 2-1-5 as the away underdog over the last 12 months. With goals and form proving hard to come by, the Draw looks a nice play.

Rafael Nadal v Kevin Anderson
11:00pm AEDT

Set Betting: Nadal 2-0 @ $2.75

Rafael Nadal is reportedly fit and firing to tackle the Australian Open next month, but in the mean time he’ll enjoy a nice little warm up match against Kevin Anderson in the Mubadala World Championship. For Anderson, his own fitness will be tested in this one after enduring a lengthy three set battle against Hyeon Chung in the previous round. It was a two hour slugfest for the South African, which should play into Nadal’s hands this evening.
