Green Bay Packers vs San Francisco 49ers
The injury ravaged 49ers have lost their last three, and there’s perhaps no tougher task in football than a road trip to face the Packers at Lambeau Field. Green Bay will be without receivers Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison however, limiting Aaron Rodgers in the passing game. The Packers’ defence has been great in the last two weeks registering nine sacks, but if C.J. Beathard can find some time in the pocket, this one could be a low-scoring, close affair.
Vegas Golden Knights vs Buffalo Sabres
After more than exceeding expectations last season, the hangover is in full effect for the Golden Knights so far. Vegas have won just three of their five games, and have struggled to score goals away from home. Fortunately, the long road trip is over, the and the Knights open their home season against the Sabres today. Vegas fell 4-2 to Buffalo last week, but with what is always a raucous crowd on their side, this should be a resounding win on home ice for the Knights.
Pakistan vs Australia
Day one gets underway this afternoon, and after our Aussies secured a draw against the hosts in Dubai last week, we’ve not only won back a little respect, but also a chance of winning this second test. Australia’s hopes lie firmly in the hands of Usman Khawaja, who scored a century in the second innings last week. At these odds to repeat as Australia’s top batsmen, it’s worth getting on.
