Daily Sports Tips – Monday, December 31

Illawarra Hawks vs Brisbane Bullets (5:20pm AEDT)
Bullets (-2.5)

The first of two NBL games slated for today will see the Bullets travel to Illawarra to play the Hawks, and I am confident that they will cover a small line currently set at only 2.5 points. The Bullets have enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence this season and enter this one fifth on the ladder, but with scope to leapfrog the Adelaide 36ers. This is a far easier prospect than the Sydney Kings were earlier in the round and they can respond with a win.

Central Coast Mariners vs Perth Glory (7pm AEDT)
Glory to Win ($1.78)

The Perth Glory are offered the perfect opportunity to atone for last week’s loss when they travel to the Central Coast this evening. Its been an outstanding start to the season for the Glory, who remain the league-leaders ten weeks into the competition while it’s a completely different story for tonight’s opponents, who remain anchored to the bottom of the table. There’s an obviously class different here at $1.78, there’s still plenty of meat on the bone for Perth in head-to-head betting.

Adelaide Strikers vs Sydney Thunder (7:15pm AEDT)
Strikers to Win ($2.05)

We’re set for a thrilling contest between the reigning champions and the in-form Sydney Thunder in Adelaide tonight, and this looks the perfect opportunity for the home side to bounce into some form. 1-2 is how the ledger reads for the Strikers so far, but they’ve been charged with facing some pretty decent sides already and are unlucky not to have recorded another win. The Thunder will be eager to respond after Friday’s loss to the Hurricanes, but the desperate home side will be tough to beat.
