The Trading Room: 7th 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 – New Orleans Pelicans @ Houston Rockets

The Rockets are the fastest paced team in the NBA at the moment and every game they play ends up in a back-and-forth affair for almost the entire 48 minutes.

While the Pelicans aren’t known for high-scoring shootouts they don’t have trouble scoring in transition or off turnovers, which is why they do end up being an Overs team against fast-paced, turnover prone teams.

This total has come down, largely because of New Orleans’ reputation more so than because of the way this match up figures to play out. Scoop the low number here.

Our best bet: Over 227.5 points $1.90 at PlayUp

Horse racing – Belmont

This 3-year-old gelding out of the Adam Durrant yard and gains the services of Chris Parnham, one of the top two jockeys in WA after the great man William Pike’s move to Sydney.

He has had two career starts and both times drew poorly and had no option but to go back. Today with barrier 3 and the small field of 7 runners that should take any map issues he’s had out of the equation. Should be winning and winning well.

Our best bet: Belmont Race 3, no. 1 – Zero Consequence $1.85 at PlayUp

Market mover
Karatemiss $10.00 –> $4.20

This 3-year-old filly out of the newly formed Ellerton yard with the inform Damien Thornton in the saddle has been the biggest go of the day.

The punters waited when the markets went up and when her price drifted to $10 they decided that’s enough and stepped in heavily.

First up for 141 days you need to see this money on; they then took the $9 and $6 and she currently is at $4.20. Expect a bold showing.

Benella Race 1, no. 12 – Karatemiss $4.20 at PlayUp
