The Trading Room: 21 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;

NBA – Sacramento Kings @ Golden State Warriors

What’s the best way to deal with an elite defence? Push the tempo and run the floor.

That doesn’t mean it will equal success, but it will give a good tempo and a chance at better scoring opportunities for the Kings in this match up.

Both teams are in the top-tier for pace of play this season – the Warriors a top-3 team in pace at home this season. Some nice value on this total today given the expected number of possessions for each team.

Our best bet: Over 221.5 points $1.90 at PlayUp

Horse racing – Geelong

This Doug Harrison 5-year-old mare gets her shot in a very winnable BM58.

After three runs this prep, steps up to the 1435m and has engaged the services of apprentice Ms Kiran Quilty, who takes 2kg off the mares back.

The key to this horse’s chances is it appears to get a soft lead bowling along and dictating the tempo that should see it be too strong late. Looks a good price.

Our best bet: Geelong Race 5, no. 8 – Whatarap $3.80 at PlayUp

Market mover
Leader Bias $26 –> $8.00

The biggest go of the day is surely for this Nathan Doyle – Lee Magorrian combo.

The 3year-old gelding had had four trials and raced at his debut on an unsuitable Heavy 8.

With a good track today at Scone the $26.00 openers were snapped up and punters still seemed happy to jump on again at $12.00.

Currently into $8 and looks a great each way bet.

Scone Race 4, no. 2 – Leader Bias $8.00 at PlayUp
