Daily Sports Tips – Friday 4th January
New York Islanders v Chicago Blackhawks
60 Minutes Betting: Islanders @ $1.95
It was a deflating loss for the struggling Blackhawks in the Winter Classic on Tuesday. Chicago were manhandled by the Bruins 4-2, leaving them as the major underdog ahead of this road trip to Brooklyn. The Islanders, on the other hand, have won four-straight, including seven of their last 10. New York has been fire at home this season, and they should have no problem exploiting Chicago’s weak defence.
Hobart Hurricanes v Sydney Sixers
James Faulkner Top Wicket Taker @ $4.50
It’s first vs. third tonight as the Sixers head to Hobart to do battle with the Hurricanes. Sydney enter this one at the wider odds despite on the road, and after Hobart destroyed the Scorchers by six wickets on Sunday, it’s not hard to imagine why. Still, Sydney’s form has been just as impressive to start the season, defeating Brisbane by five-wickets of their own last round. With this one looking a little unpredictable, James Faulkner, who took two wickets against Perth, holds plenty of value as Top Wicket Taker.
Sydney FC vs Central Coast Mariners
Sydney FC To Win Not To Nil @ $2.75
Sydney FC are still gunning for top spot on the ladder, and they could edge a little closer with a home win over the Mariners tonight. The Sky Blues haven’t lost to Central Coast since 2017, and are 7-3-1 as the home favourite against Central Coast. With the Mariners’ losing streak now standing at eight games, this one figures to only add to the pain and frustration.
