Daily Sports Tips – Saturday, January 5

Illawarra Hawks vs Sydney Kings (2:50pm AEDT)
Kings (-2.5)

The Hawks will host the Kings this afternoon and I am confident that the competition leaders will cover a small line. The Kings have recorded eleven wins from their sixteen games so far this season and enter this one off the back of an easy win over the Brisbane Bullets. Though they are capable of a good performance under the right conditions, the Hawks have been tough to trust from a betting perspective.

Adelaide United vs Wellington Phoenix (5:35pm AEDT)
Phoenix to Win ($4.15)

This looks like being the match of the round and both clubs will be confident of taking vital competition points. Nothing separates these two clubs in overall standings and both really do have live claims. I can’t understand why Adelaide have been priced as such short-priced favourites and the Phoenix are huge overs at their current quote.

Western Sydney Wanderers vs Melbourne Victory (7:50pm AEDT)
Victory to Win ($2.20)

A great opportunity looms for the Victory to return to winning form and they represent great value at their current odds. The Wanderers have been difficult to trust from a betting perspective this season and they simply look outclassed in this one.
