Daily Sports Tips – Friday, November 16

Seattle Seahawks vs Green Bay Packers (12:20pm AEDT)
Seahawks at the Line (-2.5)

The Seahawks and Packers will square off in the NFL Week 11 opener this afternoon and I am confident that the home side will cover a line currently set at only 2.5 points. The Seahawks are typically strong at home, both head-to-head and at the line and they are spurred on by a particularly parochial stadium of supporters – they are undoubtedly one of the toughest road trips in the NFL. The Packers are yet to win a game away from home this season and they face a big task in reversing that run of form here.

New Zealand Breakers vs Melbourne United (5:50pm AEDT)
Breakers to Win ($2.20)

The Breakers will host Melbourne United in the first Round 6 NBL game this evening and I think that they can win. Round 5 was a particularly fruitful one for the Breakers, who recorded wins over the Cairns Taipans and Brisbane Bullets respectively. That was enough to lift the New Zealand club into the top four for the first time this year, and with plenty of upside for further moves this weekend. Melbourne were shocked by the Illawarra Hawks last weekend and a similar performance this week would see them behind the eight-ball again.

Wild, Predators, Sharks All to Win
Combined Odds of $7.90

There’s plenty of NHL action on the card today and few nice bets to be taken in head-to-head betting. We’re diving back into the hockey for today’s multi and you can take a good price for the Wild, Predators and Sharks to win their games respectively. The Wild will have their hands full with the Canucks but should prove too good at home. The Predators are on the road in Arizona but look over the odds to beat the Coyotes. The San Jose Sharks are one of the toughest road trips in the league and they represent a tough prospect for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
