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 – Denver Nuggets @ Boston Celtics
The Celtics are rolling, but after the trade deadline they’re now down a few pieces today and facing a the toughest offensive team they’ve seen on their schedule in quite some time.
The market is inflating Boston based on their strong run, but this is as good a spot as you’ll find to sell high on this team.
Nikola Jokic can do enough to keep his team within touching distance in this one and considering the Celtics rotations will be out of whack while they wait for new pieces to arrive we should see Denver live to win this game outright.
Our best bet: Denver Nuggets +6.0 $1.92 at PlayUp
Horse racing – Gold Coast
This 3-year-old out of the Tony Gollan yard with the services of Georgina Cartwright in the saddle.
He has had four very nice trials and Gollan had plenty of options at his home track but has decided to go down the highway for an easier affair. Very well bred and has already been gelded so should have his mind on the job of winning races.
Our smartest punters stepped straight into the $2.80 when the markets opened – can still see it jumping near evens and looks a nice way to get the bank up for the day.
Our best bet: Gold Coast Race 1, no. 4 – Immoral $1.95 at PlayUp
Edmonton $7.50 –> $3.50
This 4-year-old out of the Waller yard and has Luke Dittman in the saddle and is clearly the biggest go of the day.
Showed some ability at his first prep in Sydney and has been gelded. Has had a 131-day spell and made the trip down south to tackle a lower grade at the Gold Coast.
Draws barrier 3 today and can see him following the favourite and stablemate in running.
Our smartest of punters steamed into the opening $7.50 quote and were happy to take the next $4.50 quote – now into $3.50.
Gold Coast Race 4, no. 9 – Edmonton $3.50 at PlayUp
