The Trading Room: 3rd 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 – Washington Wizards @ Philadelphia 76ers

The Sixers get a depleted and fatigued Washington today at home and even with an inflated spread it’s still value to Philadelphia here.

The Wizards closed 11.5-point underdogs at Milwaukee last night and now we’re getting a cheaper price for a 76ers team that is performing at near identical level as Milwaukee while also owning a significant rest advantage to match?

The market hasn’t quite adjusted for this Wizards team at the moment and is probably a point or two shy of where it should be in this spot.

Our best bet: Philadelphia 76ers -10.5 $1.90 at PlayUp

Horse racing – Pakenham

This 3-year-old gelding out of the Price/Kent yard finds a very suitable maiden.

Having only his second start after a 256-day spell, and having completed three solid to impressive jumpouts in January, markets seem to be overlooking him here.

Missed the start at his debut run but comes back gelded and attains the services of Jamie Kah tonight.

From watching the jumpouts look for Jamie Kah to look for cover midfield and should be charging over the top late. Smartest of smart money has already stepped into the opening $3.40 now into $2.50 – wait to jump time and should get marginally better price.

Our best bet: Pakenham Race 3, no. 6 – Mangani $2.50 at PlayUp

Market mover
Your Shout Gingie $34 –> $13

This 2-year-old chestnut filly comes out of the Griffiths/De Kock yard and is clearly the biggest go of the day.

She had a very soft trial last week at Geelong. There’s a lot of question marks about this race but she draws barrier one and money doesn’t lie.

The punters launched into the opening $34 quote and the late comers were happy to take prices all the way down to where she sits now at $13.

Pakenham Race 1, no. 9 – Your Shout Gingie $13 at PlayUp
