Daily Sports Tips – Thursday, November 1

Vancouver Canucks vs Chicago Blackhawks (1:05pm AEDT)
Over 5.5 Goals ($1.85)

We’re set for a thrilling contest when the Canucks host the Blackhawks this afternoon and there’s plenty of value to be found in betting. There really is a case to be made for both teams in the head-to-head market and each have experienced plenty of movement throughout the last 24 hours. Both teams have been absolutely lethal in front of goal throughout the first month of the NHL season and the best value looks like sitting in totals betting. Over 5.5 goals looks a terrific bet here.

Brisbane Bullets vs Adelaide 36ers (7:50pm AEDT)
36ers at the Line (-3.5)

The Bullets will host the 36ers in Brisbane this evening and I am confident that the away side can cover what looks like a small line. The Bullets did pull off the upset of the season when they stunned league-leaders Perth in Brisbane last week, but they were subsequently handed a comfortable defeat by the Illawarra Hawks and it’s tough imagining them repeating last Thursday’s heroics against a team to the quality of the 36ers.

Manchester City vs Fulham (6:45am AEDT)
Both Teams to Score ($2.30)

The EFL Cup continues early tomorrow morning and the world-beating Manchester City will host Premier League newcomers Fulham. Betting suggests that this will be an extremely one-sided affair and it’s tough imagining a result other than City winning, but the reigning champions typically rest all of their stars for matches like this one and are a lot more vulnerable than they otherwise would be. I think City will win, but Fulham with most of their Premier League roster on the pitch can find the back of the net.
