Otago Volts Vs Auckland Aces Prediction 28/12/20
It’s the first match of the Super Smash for the Volts, meaning there is no form to judge them off.
This could work in the Aces favour, as they already have a game under their belt. Albeit, a game they lost.
Mitchell McClenaghan will bring some vital experience to the Otago side, and his know how could be vital throughout the Super Smash season.
Will it be enough to win this match for the Volts? Only time will tell.
The Aces are without most of their big names, who are on international duty with the New Zealand national squad.
They would have been prepared for this though, and have still assembled a handy squad.
I thought that squad would be enough to see the Aces beat Wellington Firebirds in Match 1, and the Aces came up short.
So I’m going to stick my neck out and oppose the Aces this time, and tip the Volts to edge a close contest.
