Daily Sports Tips – Friday 17th April

Jarred Cole v Andy Jenkins
8.25pm AEST

Cole to Win @ $2.30

This one really could go either way so it’s a surprise to see the odds skewed to Jenkins here.

Cole is the definition of up and down mostly alternating between wins and losses over the last few days while Jenkins is in streaky form here.

I’ll back Cole to win here since he looks way over the odds at his current price.

Rakuten Monkeys v Fubon Guardians
8.30pm AEST

Rakuten to Win @ $1.73

After last weekend’s match was rained out, we get to see the two sides that have begun their seasons with back to back wins face off.

It’s hard not to be impressed with the way Rakuten demolished the Uni Lions yesterday putting up a remarkable 15-3 win.

It might be somewhat simple analysis but the bats of Rakuten have been hot to start the season, putting up nine runs in their extra innings victory on Tuesday.

Right now they just seem like the side that will score however many runs they need to come away with a win and while Fubon’s pitching has been quite strong so far, I’ll back the hot hitters.

Belshina v Smolevichi
12.30am AEST

Draw @ $2.70

It’s last taking on second last in… whatever the opposite of a blockbuster clash is.

These are the only two winless sides in the competition and the overall struggles of both teams to score has it looking like this match is heading only one way.

A low scoring draw seems inevitable.
