The Trading Room: 17th December

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;

NFL – LA Chargers v Kansas City Chiefs

The NFL Season is heating up with only 4 rounds to go and tomorrow we have a great clash between twi in-form AFC West rivals in Thursday Night Football.

The Kansas City Chiefs visit the Los Angeles Chargers, both teams look playoff bound and the winner of this game will be in a great position to secure the division title . The Chiefs are riding a six-game winning streak after looking shaky early in the season and the Chargers are also in good form, having won 4 of their last 6.
Our best bet for this game is Over 54.5 at $1.91, LA Chargers games averaging 56 points over the past 6 games and the Mahomes-fuelled KC offence capable of racking up touchdowns at will.

The teams met in a thriller at Kansas City earlier in the year with the Chargers prevailing 30-24, expect a similar score in the game tomorrow.

Our best bet: Over 54.5 points $1.93 at PlayUp

Horse Racing – Moonee Valley

This lightly raced five-year-old mare out of the Maher/Eustace stable has all the favours with the scratchings being all the speed in the race.

I can now see the in-form star Jamie Kah dictating a soft lead and third up, up to the 2400m looks ideal.

The $3.30 was snapped up fast, still a very good bet at the current $2.40 on offer.

Our best bet: Moonee Valley Race 6, no. 9 – Poppy Joan $2.40 at PlayUp

Market mover – Horse Racing, Moonee Valley
El Salto $21.00 –> $11.00

Punters were quick to snap up the $21 opening price for this son of Written Tycoon.

The Brent Stanley-trained 4-year-old gets the services of experienced Group 1 jockey Luke Currie tonight and has the added advantage of a low draw over the short course distance of 955m at The Valley.

He was beaten only 0.2 of a length last start at Werribee in a BM64 and meets similar opposition here tonight. Great each way chance at double figure odds.

Our best bet: Moonee Valley Race 5, no. 6 – El Salto $11.00 at PlayUp
