Daily Sports Tips – Sunday, December 30

Cris Cyborg vs Amanda Nunes (3pm AEDT)
Cyborg by KO/TKO ($2)

Cyborg enters this all Brazilian tilt with an outstanding 20-1-1 professional MMA record. Her last fight was a very impressive first-round knockout of Yana Kunitskaya. Known for her incredible power and striking ability, 17 of Cyborg’s 20 career wins have come by knockout. Whilst today’s opponent Amanda Nunes has beaten some tough women, Cris Cyborg is just a different animal. Especially at a higher weight class, I expect Cyborg’s power to prove difficult to contend with in this one. At $2 to win by KO, I think this represents immense value.

Hobart Hurricanes vs Perth Scorchers (7:15pm AEDT)
Hurricanes to Win ($1.90)

The league-leading Hurricanes will host early season favourites the Scorchers tonight and I am confident that they can continue their unbeaten run of form. Mathew Wade’s men were too good for the Sydney Thunder in Friday’s top of the table clash at Bellerive, and a repeat of that performance would surely see them a bridge too far for a Scorchers outfit who haven’t been close to their best.

Newcastle Jets vs Adelaide United (7:30pm AEDT)
Jets to Win ($2.35)

Neither the Jets nor Adelaide United have been at their best through the first nine weeks of the season, but I am confident that this looms as a very winnable game for the home side and they represent great value in head-to-head betting. They really gave the league-leading Glory a match two weeks ago and will carry winning form and plenty of confidence into this one after snatching the F3 Derby most-recently.
