The Trading Room: 10th February

WELCOME to the PlayUp Trading Room where you get insight on the days best bets, according to our traders.

Live from 9am everyday – let’s take a look at what’s on deck today;

NBA – Toronto Raptors @ OKC Thunder

The Raptors are rolling as we etch towards the mid-season break in the NBA.

A trip to Oklahoma City might not bring out their best basketball, but they won’t need to be at their best to take care of this depleted Thunder team.

OKC has strung together decent performances since losing Shai Gilgeous-Alexander but their absentee list will start to catch up with them and will likely come in a game like this where they are severely under-matched across the floor.

If Toronto dominates the rebounding and three-point scoring at both ends of the floor there’s no reason they don’t win by double-digits regardless of everything else.

Our best bet: Toronto Raptors -10.0 $1.90 at PlayUp

Horse racing – Pakenham

This 4-year-old out of the Greg Eurell yard and today gets the massive jockey upgrade D. Lane in the saddle.

Two nice runs at his first campaign and is first up today after a 336-day spell.

Two very nice jump-outs where he has shown an abundance of natural early speed.

The $3 was snapped up as soon as markets opened – D. Lane to dictate and be just too strong late.

Our best bet: Pakenham Race 2, no. 4 – O’Lucky $2.45 at PlayUp

Market mover
The Grouse $15.00 –> $9.00

This 6-year-old out of the Gary Stephens yard also gets a jockey upgrade of Zac Lloyd in the saddle.

Was a very nice run last start where he made significant ground and today from barrier 1 should be able to map closer in running.

Hard to tip a 16-start maiden but the smart punters where happy to take the $15 when markets opened. Suggest small the win and larger the place as can see it paying $3 for the drum.

Gatton Race 5, no 13 – The Grouse $9.00 at PlayUp
