Daily Sports Tips – Friday, February 8

Sydney Kings vs Melbourne United (7:50pm AEDT)
United (-1.5)

We could witness the game of the round when the finals-bound Kings and United do battle in Sydney tonight, but I am confident that the away side can sneak away with the win – their fifth in a row, if successful. United have really kicked into gear at the right point of the season and carry huge momentum into this. They’ll have their hands full with Bogut and the Kings, but are faced with a small line and can take bragging rights heading into the pointy end of the season.

Brisbane Heat vs Melbourne Stars (8:40pm AEDT)
Heat to Win ($2.20)

It hasn’t been the best season on record for the Brisbane Heat, but they’ll be quietly confident of knocking off a similarly inconsistent Melbourne Stars side in front of the Gabba faithful tonight. The Heat boast one of the league’s biggest batting line-ups and should they fire, it could be another tough night at the office for the travelling Melbournites.

Capitals, Golden Knights Both to Win
Combined Odds of $3.80

There’s plenty of NHL action on the slate today and great combined odds on offer for last year’s Stanley Cup contestants, the Capitals and Golden Knights to win their respective games. The Capitals remain prominent in the Metropolitan Division and should be too good for the Avalanche at home. The Golden Knights are on the road, but they’ve really warmed to the task recently and are a class above the Detroit Red Wings this season.
