Daily Sports Tips – Saturday, February 2

best bet
Central Coast Mariners vs Melbourne Victory (5:35pm AEDT)
Victory to Nil ($3.20)

The Mariners will more than likely finish the season last overall and they will have their hands full with the Melbourne Victory this evening. The Victory have returned to outstanding form and enter this one with plenty of swagger after taking last week’s Big Blue. It’s tough imagining the Mariners having much of an impact.

Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder (7pm AEDT)
Thunder to Win ($2.10)

This most open edition of the Big Bash league continues tonight when the Sixers and Thunder do battle in another Sydney Derby. Both sides have looked more than capable this season and will be eager to take what is sure to be a vital win away from the other tonight, as well as bragging rights. The Thunder will be slightly more desperate for the result, given their standing on the ladder currently and I am happy to take the value around them in the head-to-head market.
