Just a small one for me tonight, because fatigue could be a factor here for Perth. Also obviously the Kings are a scary propostion at home. This will be the first time I have ever opposed the Kings at home I think. Goodluck to all.
Perth +9.5 over Sydney------------------------------------------1.5 units (Sportstab)
Guess it's difficult to play in front of 3 people with no atmosphere and you can hear the shoes squeaking on every play. There's better atmosphere in a training session. Hopefully we can bounce back later on
Cats were lucky Goorj was treating this as a U23 Australian tryout in the last half, otherwise the margin would have been 50 points
It had the atmosphere of a tryout
Cats will be back, I'm sure. Whether we can beat the Kings or not come playoff time well that's another matter, but we didn't even show up tonight so it shouldn't be taken as a true reflection of our ability.
Tonight the Razorbacks are going to have a totally different look with James Harvey back from injury, the new signings of Pero Vasiljevic and Graeme Dann and the release of import Jermain Blackburn.
With Harvey back the Razorbacks will look a lot better offensively, but it is there defense that is the worry as they are yet to concede less than 100 points in a game so far this season.
NZ are also a woeful defensive team, especially on the road where they have averaged 114ppg against them.
So with that said the over 204.5 looks very tasty and I will definitely have some of it.
Razorbacks v Breakers over 204.5 - $1.85 (3 units @ NSW Sports TAB)
My other bet in this game is a scoring prop on Rich Melzer. In the two games between these sides this season Melzer has averaged 20ppg and I can't see any reason for him not to score something similar this evening.
Melzer to outscore Pepper, Tait, McGregor and Reed - $3.20 (1 unit @ Centrebet)
Will be back a bit later with some plays on the Bullets v Taipans game, just need to clarify Rucker's status before I finalize my bets.
Good point on the totals sparks and hawker in the pigs game
my only concern with that is that pigs offense could be somewhat sluggish to begin with tonight given harvey hasn't played in a while and pero and dann will have to feel their way with respect to team offensive plays
having said that the Breakers defense is non existant so i might join you and throw a few coins on it as well
