Overnight Essendon were surprise winners over GWS finishing strongly to win by 6 points.
I’m opting for a multi this weekend with Fremantle, Geelong, Port Adelaide and Collingwood to all win. The multi price is $2.60. If you would like to fatten it up you could add West Coast, Sydney and Brisbane which swells the price to $7.21.
Looking for novelty plays and in First Goal Scorer betting I am backing Mitch Duncan at $31, Josh Kennedy at $7.50, Charlie Dixon at $8 and Tom Lynch at $7.
I’ll take a multi with Cronulla, New Zealand and St. George Illawarra which is paying $3.27.
WORLD CUP CRICKET
Our early tournament bets on Australia at $4.50, David Warner most runs for the tournament at $10 and Mitchell Starc most wickets for the tournament at $13 are all very well placed. Still some way to go but right now I wouldn’t be swapping any of them.
Over the next few days I’ve put together a multi which requires Pakistan to beat Afghanistan, Australia to beat New Zealand and India to beat England. The multi price is $3.07.
From a novelty perspective I’ll be backing Babar Azam most runs Pakistan at $3.50, Kane Williamson most runs New Zealand at $3, Virat Kohli most runs India at $3 and Joe Root most runs England at $3.50.
I am having some pre-tournament bets for Wimbledon.
I am backing Novak Djokovic at $2.50 to win the Men’s title and I am backing in Ash Barty to go big again and take out the Women’s title at $5. I’ve also had a small multi on the pair at $12.50.
Winter Racing in full effect around Australia tomorrow and locally the clash between Galaxy Star and Gatting in the Group 3 Strickland Stakes at Belmont should be a cracker.
My best bets of the weekend are as follows :
Caulfield Saturday Race 1 Number 3 Sizzlefly (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $2.20) : Undefeated 2 Year Old who has won with plenty up her sleeve in both career outings including last time out on a heavy surface at Mornington over 1000 metres. Steps up from 1000 metres to the 1200 metres for this assignment and can continue on her winning way.
Sunshine Coast Saturday Race 8 Number 3 Jamaican Rain (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $2.70) : Excels on a rain affected surface with 5 wins and a second from 7 attempts and should relish the heavy 10 conditions on offer. Has won 3 races over this trip and is one for one at the track and distance. Looks a perfect assignment.
Belmont Saturday Race 2 Number 1 Deimos (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $2.20) : Has returned from a break in splendid form going bang, bang with wins here over the 1400 metres and 1600 metres. Is getting better with every run and despite rising in weight won with plenty in store last time out. Should get the cash again.
Belmont Saturday Race 8 Number 5 Multiverse (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $11) : Belmont specialist who has had 8 tries this track and distance for 6 wins and a second. Has drawn the car park here in barrier 17 but showed last start that he has come back in stunning order and if he can just get some cover in the run expect him to be right in the finish at double figure odds. Well worth an each way play.
Mandurah Friday Race 2 Number 5 Magic Mamba (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price Not Available) : Quality young dog who possesses blistering early pace. Should shoot straight to the top and not be challenged. Other nice plays look to be 5-2 Dashing Tiger, 6-3 Starlight Yoyo, 7-1 Garbrandt and 8-7 Cosmic Ox.
