Ok lets kick this off in NZ...


OVERS 206.5 Breakers v Tigers - $1.90

Both really don't have much to play for over the weekend, so hard to get a feel of the +/-5 spread


good luck

A couple games tonight and to be honest I love both.




Melbourne -5 over NZ Breakers--------------------5 units


Hunter -4 over Townsville------------------------1.7 units


Melbourne ML / Hunter ML (+131)------------------1.5 units



Strongest bet for awhile tonight on Melbourne.

Taking Pirates to cover -4 v Crocs - $1.90 in the late game.

good luck

Half time and the lead has been cut into quite abit, mainly IMO due to the Tigers giving some of their scrubs more gametime than usual. No doubt though If the lead is eaten into more that won't happen so much. Halftime score flatters the Breakers IMO.
Although they did pick up their Intensity on D bigtime in the 2nd quarter, came out very flat.

Well F*** it looks is If Trahair is a no show for Hunter, HT and the NBL scoreboard shows he hasn't taken part ugghhhh did not know this, did u BG ? Certainly doesn't help our chances.

Looks like both he and Calvary were late scratches. Neither were listed as having problems on the injury media release I saw. On the Fox coverage they said Trahair has a broken bone in his foot, not sure what his staus is for Sunday.

They said Calvary is out for Friday night's game though, not that it matters as he has barely played any minutes over the last few games.

i was not aware of the trahair absence either :shrug:

what happened in NZ :confused: I left home after HT and they had scored 114 odd and see the result now and they fell short of the total? ah well thats the risk with the overs

I'm grabing the one early :

Kings -1.5 over the Taipans @ 1.90 which will play tmr !!!

Taipans, after tonight, with tired legs will not be able to keep up with the rested Kings, even tho they're playing on home court. The Kings will blow them off the court in the last quarter. They will also be looking to gain some momentum into the playoffs and recover from their loss against the Breakers last round.

Since it's the last game, i'm aware that both teams maybe sending in some subs to get some game time and prevent any injury to their big players, but i see there's enough depth in the Kings' squad to pull them thru this one. Webber will be playing for sure, so that should be more than enough. -3.5 @ 2.10 is also very tempting !!!

Mate I hope you know that both Jason Smith and Ian Crosswhite aren't playing in that game. CJ Bruton is playing after recovering from an ankle injury, but I doubt he will play extended minutes with the playoffs just around the corner.

Cairns should win tonight since they hv more to play for.

Good luck, Surf ~!!! :yeah:

For your question, no, we don't just bet 'head to head'... H2H will pay out around 1.70, but some people may think it's worth risking a little more to increase the payout by taking the Taipans -2.5, which will pay 1.90 ... depends on the people.

ARGG !!! Are you serious ??? SHIEETTT!!! Already droped a green back on this one... let's hope the line will change into my favour after tonight's game so i can hedge it... :sad:

Actaully, if the Taipans lost tonight, the scenario should improve for my bet on the Kings -1.5 against them tomorrow as well... The line should increase and then i can maybe hedge it to create some arbitrage ~ ;)

Taipans 79-74 3 qtr time.

Mate I would be a little worried about the under if I was you. Scoring 58 in a quarter is nothing when it comes to games at the Swamp.

Hope it's low scoring for you though :)

Not going to be around today so have just bet these :






Wollongong -10.5 over WS--------------------1.3 units


NZBreakers +5.5 over Melbourne---------------0.8 of a unit





Another profitable round even If these both lose :)

Hmm... after sitting down and been thinking about what i should do to my Kings -1.5 bet... i've come to realisation that I still prefer it to stand the way it is...

The Kings will thrash the Taipans even without those key players...

1) Fatigue and fitness level after ytd match will affect the Snakes late in the game
2) The Crocs were brutal last night (as can be confirmed by BG).... they were very physical against the Taipans, and should take a lot out of them...

Therefore, VAMOS the KINGS !!!!!! :worship:
