The Trading Room: 12th January

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 @ LA Clippers

Two depleted teams meet in LA as the Nuggets take on the Clippers here.

Denver losing Will Barton to Health & Safety Protocols is another cruel blow for this team who have continually had to deal with adversity this season.

The Clippers haven’t had it much better and are still without the services of Paul George. Looking at this total; we get two teams who are below league average in pace of play, both are above average defensively and both are in the bottom-tier for offensive rebounding. I’d expect to see a lot of one-and-done possessions here, which makes this total seem a little high given how they match up.

Our best bet: Under 213.5 points $1.90 at PlayUp

Horse racing – Caulfield

This 4-year-old gelding out of the Michael Huglin yard with the 2kg claim to help from apprentice Josh Richards.

He has a nice record of 4 starts for 2 wins and two 3rd’s, and last start accounted for himself very well at his first time down the straight and battled on well.

Today drops back from that BM70 to the BM64 – drawn 3 should enable him to map just camped off the leaders. Should be winning!

Our best bet: Caulfield Race 8, no. 5 – Kentucky Casanova $2.25 at PlayUp

Market mover
Rusheen $18 –> $6.50

The stable obviously have an opinion of this 3-year-old gelding out of Toronado and is clearly the biggest go of the day.

Has been thrown in the deep end and accounted for himself well – last start at Flemington was a strange watch as somehow down the straight never got out and is a complete forgive.

Today drops in grade to a more suitable BM64 and haven’t the punters found her after snapping up the 18’s when markets opened and happy again to take the $11’s now into the $6 quote.

Caulfield Race 2, no. 6 – Rusheen $6.50 at PlayUp
