————————————

 

Matt

A-League – Sydney FC def Wellington Phoenix @ $2.05 – Sydney showed some heart (you see what I did there?) last week to grab a late win, and the addition of Joel Griffiths should bolster their failing attack against a Wellington side who seem to be falling behind the pack.

&

ODI – Australia def Sri Lanka @ $1.65 – The Aussies are taking this one seriously now with Warner, Wade and Clarke all back. The bouncy GABBA pitch will prove too much for the Sri Lankans I believe, with an also returning Mitchell Starc to create havoc.

= $3.38

 

Adrian

A-League – Roar v Wanderers – Wanderers @ $3.15 – They’re the outsiders? With the departure of Paartalu, the Roar are there for the taking.

&

EPL – Tottenham v Man Utd – Man Utd @ $2.30 – After Spurs touched up the Red Devils at Old Trafford earlier in the season, I’m looking for United to extract revenge in this one. 

= $7.25

 

James

Cricket – 3rd ODI – Australia v Sri Lanka – Australia @ $1.36 – Don’t know what happened in the 2nd ODI, but surely they can pull themselves together for this one.

&

EPL – Southampton v Everton – Everton @ $2.05 – A decent price, even though Southampton aren’t as bad as they were earlier in the season.

= $2.79

 

Tomo

NBA – Heat vs. Lakers – Heat @ $2.18 – How are the Lakers the favourites?! I’m taking the Heat in hopes of reverse jinxing myself.

&

Cricket – South Africa vs. New Zealand – South Africa @ $1.20 – Because NZ sucks.

= 2.62

 

David

S Africa v N Zealand 1st ODI – Head to Head – S Africa @ $1.22 – Would you bet against it?

&

Aus Open – Wmns-V Williams/Sharapova – Sharapova @ $1.25 – I seriously considered going for the loudest grunt in this match, but that would just be painful for all. Instead, I’ll back Sharapova to blast (both in terms of our ear drums and in terms of tennis) her way to victory.

= $1.53

 

Ruben

A-League – Sydney FC v Wellington Phoenix – Draw @ $3.40 – The ‘nix can’t take a trick currently, but a draw here wouldn’t be out of the question. 

& 

Australian Open – Tomic v Federer – Tomic @ $6.00 – Is Tomic likely to win? Not according to the bookmakers… But at that price, I’m willing to give him a chance.

= $20.40
