Daily Sports Tips – Thursday, October 11

Anaheim Ducks vs Arizona Coyotes (1:05pm AEDT)
Ducks to Win ($2)

The Ducks return to Anaheim this afternoon and should have too much firepower for the travelling Coyotes. It has been an outstanding start to the season for the Ducks, who have so far franked their pre-season form with three impressive wins from as many starts, including one on the road over the Coyotes. Even money does seem over the odds for the home side.

New Zealand Breakers vs Brisbane Bullets (5:20pm AEDT)
Breakers at the Line (-1.5)

The NBL season is underway from this afternoon and the Bullets face a huge task in the form of the Breakers, in New Zealand first-up. The Brisbane club haven’t made much of an impression through their first two season back in the NBL, but they do enter this season refreshed and with a few new exciting signings on their roster. The Breakers have been one of the league’s most consistent franchises through recent seasons and they are always one of the toughest road trips. They can cover a line currently set at only 1.5 points.

Adelaide 36ers vs Perth Wildcats (7:50pm AEDT)
Wildcats to Win ($2.15)

Old enemies the 36ers and Wildcats will square off in Adelaide tonight and we’re in for a terrific contest. Focus for the 36ers this season is set solely on going one better than last year’s championship series loss to Melbourne. The Wildcats have clearly been the league benchmark for that last five or more seasons and they are a live threat in every game that they contest. These clubs can rarely be split when they go head-to-head, and I think that the Wildcats represent great value to win.
