Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
South East Melbourne returns home from a trip to Adelaide hoping to find some winning form, while the Taipans head into Round 11 on a three-game losing streak ahead of Thursday’s home game against Perth.
We’ll know a little more about how these two teams have pulled up from their opening round clashes, but as far as the market is concerned, take your pick.
The bookies are narrowly siding with the Phoenix here at -1.5, although it is worth noting South East Melbourne has covered the line only twice in their five games as the home favourite against the spread.
Cairns, meanwhile, has been a steady betting play as the line underdog on the road recently. The Taipans are 9-6 in this scenario over the last 12 months, so take Cairns to show the Phoenix how its done.
Tip: South East Melbourne Phoenix at $1.81
