2018 AFL Predictions – Sportsbet Odds

By | Betting Previews

2018 AFL Predictions Here are some of my predictions for the 2018 AFL season which includes least wins, minor premiership, top 4 value bet, to make the final 8 and to miss the final 8. Least Wins – Gold Coast It looks like another tough year for the Suns. They’ve lost Gary Ablett in the offseason and have a new rookie coach (Stuart Dew). Now you can add the Commonwealth Games as another distraction. As a result, the schedule has not been kind. They won’t play on the Gold Coast until Round 11 against the Cats and that’s not easy….

2018 NBA Preview – Sunday Feb 25

By | Betting Previews

Boston Celtics At New York Knicks The Celtics and Knicks both earned victories after the All-Star break so they’ll be looking to keep momentum flowing on Sunday. Boston defeated the Pistons 110-98 which was mainly helped by a 38 point 2nd quarter. While for the Knicks, they outlasted the Magic on the road 120-113. The last meeting between the two sides was an absolute thrashing at this venue. Boston carved up the Knicks D on their way to a 103-73 win. They’ve won the last two at MSG by 20+ points so the Knicks need to find ways of shutting…

2017 Big Bash Fantasy Preview – Melbourne Stars

By | Fantasy Previews

Melbourne Stars Melbourne was bundled out of the finals last season after the Scorchers bowling lineup dominated. This season, they’ve added top-runscorer from BBL06 in Ben Dunk and they’ll be expecting another finals spot. Key Batsman – Ben Dunk Ben Dunk led the Big Bash in runs last season and he’s now moved to the Stars in BBL07. He comes at a high price of $105K but if he can start well again this season, he’s well worth the price. Key Bowler – Scott Boland Boland led the Stars with 14 wickets last season and he’ll be the key again….

2017 Big Bash Fantasy Preview – Melbourne Renegades

By | Fantasy Previews

Melbourne Renegades The Melbourne Renegades have arguably their best squad in Big Bash history and they’re poised for a finals position. They just missed the finals last year and will be confident of making it this season. Key Batsman – Brad Hodge For just 81K, you can pickup Hodge and get guaranteed runs. He’s arguably been the best Big Bash batsman in history and I’m expecting another great season by Hodgey. Key Bowler – Kane Richardson With Pattison out injured and Siddle at the Strikers, Richardson is the key bowler for the Renegades. He performed well for Australia in the…

2017 Big Bash Fantasy Preview – Perth Scorchers

By | Fantasy Previews

Perth Scorchers The reigning Big Bash champions have a basically unchanged lineup from last year and there’s really no signs of them slowing down in BB07. Key Batsman – Michael Klinger Klinger comes with a 70k price tag which I believe is valuable. He totalled 334 runs in BBL07 and I can see him having another great season. Key Bowler – Mitch Johnson Johnson is back for BBL07 and he’ll be the key strike weapon at the Scorchers. With the likes of Richardson, Tye and potentially Behrendorff (injury), the Scorchers bowling lineup is tough. Johnson dominated in the latter stagers…

2017 Big Bash Fantasy Preview – Hobart Hurricanes

By | Fantasy Previews

Hobart Hurricanes The Hurricanes finished 7th last season and it’s hard to see them improving. They’ll be missing Stuart Broad and Kumar Sangakkara, so the weight will be well and truly on Bailey/Christian to perform. But they’ll likely give a lot of their younger players opportunity to perform, such as Ben McDermott. Key Batsman – George Bailey The Hurricanes lineup is weak this year in terms of batting power and Bailey is going to be the key. He was the top run scorer for the Hurricanes last season with 247 runs at 49.40. He’s also been in great form for…

2017 Big Bash Fantasy Preview – Brisbane Heat

By | Fantasy Previews

Brisbane Heat The Brisbane Heat had one of the best Big Bash tournaments last season as they made the semi-finals. They lost in a super over against the Sixers at home but were missing Chris Lynn. His shoulder remains an issue for the Heat and they’ll need to him firing once again. Key Batsman – Brendon McCullum McCullum ($92k) is back for another Big Bash campaign and I’m looking forward to watching his power batting. Last season, he scored 323 runs from 8 matches and his combination with Lynn is great to watch. He’s currently warming up for the Big…

2017 Big Bash Fantasy Preview – Adelaide Strikers

By | Fantasy Previews

Adelaide Strikers The Strikers had a disappointing campaign last season with a 3-5 record so they’ll be looking to enter the finals once again. They’re missing Ben Dunk and Kieron Pollard this year in a big blow. But it opens up opportunities for their younger stars. Key Batsman – Travis Head Head ($59.9k) is the key for the Strikers batting lineup. He’s grown in confidence since an amazing hundred on Australia day a few years ago in Big Bash. He’s since gone on to play for Australia and will provide a steady “head” in the top order. The only danger…
