I’ll opt for a multi with Collingwood, GWS and Geelong to all win into West Coast to win by 1-39 points against the Western Bulldogs. The multi price is $2.82. If you would like to make it bigger you could add Richmond, Port and Brisbane which would swell it to $9.48.
Looking for some First Goal Scorer options and I have backed Tom Lynch at $7.50, Gary Rohan at $12, Josh Kennedy at $6.50 and Jeremy Cameron at $6.25.
I will take a multi with South Sydney and North Queensland to win their respective matches this weekend. The multi price is $5.25.
WORLD CUP CRICKET
The World Cup got underway overnight with England accounting for South Africa in comfortable fashion.
Tonight Pakistan play the West Indies in a match where I like a few plays.
The West Indies have been backed from $2.15 into $1.85 and I think the money is smart. Pakistan have been in average form while the West Indies are heading in with some strong recent efforts – I’ll be using them in some multis this weekend.
I think Babar Azam is Pakistan’s premier batsman and I am happy to be on him at $3.50 to be the leading run scorer for Pakistan.
I’ll take a multi with West Indies to win tonight into New Zealand, Australia and South Africa over the next few days. The multi price is $3.16.
I think you can back Kane Williamson most runs New Zealand and Trent Boult most wickets for New Zealand throughout the course of the tournament for some tidy results.
CHAMPION’S LEAGUE FINAL
In what is a massive result for English football Liverpool and Tottenham clash in the Champion’s League Final.
I will stick with Liverpool to win at the end of 90 minutes at $1.93.
Another great day of racing to look forward to at Belmont and Group 1 Racing to look forward to at Doomben.
My best bets of the weekend are as follows :
Doomben Saturday Race 4 Number 1 Viridine (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $2.45) : Handy 4 year old who won in impressive fashion at his most recent outing at Scone. A winner at 5 of his 16 starts and looks very well placed in this lineup. Can make it back to back victories.
Doomben Saturday Race 9 Number 6 Sixties Groove (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $4.20) : Talented stayer who ran a slashing third when tipped in this column as a $21 chance in the Doomben Cup. Was making up plenty of late ground on that occasion and looks well suited by the step up to 2200 metres here. Runs into Kenedna again who is a threat but Sixties Groove has had 3 tries over this trip for 2 wins and a second and I am happy to be on him at a nice price.
Rosehill Saturday Race 1 Number 5 Exceedance (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $2.70) : Very smart 2 year old who made a stellar debut when winning at Wyong. In good hands with Team Hawkes and looks to be one out of the box. Drawn ok and should maintain his unbeaten record here.
Belmont Saturday Race 5 Number 1 Fine Scent (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $11) : Handy mare who drew poorly and had no luck when travelling ground first up. Draws much more favourably here and with the claim for Chloe Azzopardi gets in quite nicely. Has had 3 tries second up for a win and a second and has placed all three tries at this track and distance in the past. Looks a super each way bet.
Mandurah Friday Race 10 Number 1 Bago Coops (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price Not Available) : Big unit who appreciates it when he can draw right in or right out in the boxes. Will be barging through on the fence and that looks the key to victory. I also like the chances of 1-1 Alfa Tonic, 5-6 Junkyard Muppet and 6-7 Dashing Tiger this evening.
