It wouldn’t be Neds Available World of Sports without your daily dose of Russian Ural Regional Volleyball Championship tips.
We’re getting around this afternoon’s (3 pm AEST) match between the Ural Raiders and Ural Miltary for old times sake.
This game is set to be a beauty.
The Raiders have only lost three of their past 13 matches and have clearly established themselves as the team to beat.
Ural Military on the other hand, have only 3 out of their past 13 and are coming off a 1-3 loss at the hands of the Ural Raiders in their most recent hitout.
These two teams have met 16 times in this tournament with the Raiders and Military both at eight games apiece.
Punters can’t split them at the moment with both being $1.85 head to head.
While we can’t find a winner, I think this match should go the full five-sets and is well worth taking at the $2.60 price.
Time to get around some overnight Austrian Bundesliga action with the big clash between Swarovski Tirol vs Mattersburg.
It’s make or break time for Swarovski, who is coming off a solid display in their 1-1 draw with Rheindorf Altach and is a vast improvement to that 0-5 belting at the hands of St. Polten at their home ground.
That point gets them out of the relegation zone.
Mattersburg goes into this match with a vital win over Admira, ending a four-game winless run and are now four points clear of the relegation zone.
Both teams will be desperate for a win but since the competition resumed, its fair to say that Mattersburg is the better team on paper.
Recent trends suggest they tend to perform better on away days.
No crowds obviously work for them.
I expect that trend to continue and for Mattersburg to get the job done.
Kick-off is at 3:30 am Wednesday AEST.
