We've gone through our tips and have found you the five best bets for the weekend from Horse Racing, A-League, cricket and the FA Cup.
We've gone through all our tips to give you the five best bets you should be placing or using as multi-fillers this weekend.
Horse Racing – Randwick Race 8
The Tip: Sei Stella
Why: This mare is lightly raced but has shown to have a tonne of ability winning four out of her six starts to date. Has drawn well and looks the one they all need to beat. Pick of the programme.
Horse Racing – Caulfield Race 8
The Tip: Mastering
Why: He has drawn to get the run of the race and will take a power of beating. This gelding is racing in great form of late and going on his six-length victory at Kilmore two starts back will be the one they all need to beat. Was smashed in betting last start but couldn’t hold off the finish of Usain Bowler down the Flemington straight. Go again!
BBL – Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Thunder
The Tip: Top Thunder batsman – Jos Buttler
Why: Jos Buttler ($2.75) continued his brilliant tournament and sits atop the run-scoring pile for BBL 08. He again looks a safe bet to ride home in this one.
FA Cup – Bournemouth v Brighton
The Tip: Bournemouth to win
Why: Albion’s second XI lost 1-0 at home to Southampton in the League Cup - a surprise considering how strong their home form is in the Premier League - and their last four trips to the Vitality have ended in defeat (once after extra-time in last season’s League Cup).
The Seagulls are poor travellers at the best of times, and when you consider Eddie Howe’s side won three consecutive home matches in this season’s League Cup, before succumbing 1-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, shows they’re a good prospect to win on Saturday.
A-League – Melbourne City v Newcastle Jets
The Tip: Melbourne City to win
Why: Melbourne City is starting to hum now and have worked out how to win without Bruno Fornaroli.
They have the highest passing conversion rate in the league and possession is a pillar of success in this game. They come into this fresh off a 2-0 win over the Wanderers where goalie Eugene Galekovic was in beast mode.
He pulled off some spectacular saves and a penalty and with him beaten the sticks we are confident that City will get the cash once again.
Warren Joyce’s side has won five of their last six against the Newcastle Jets and we expect that run to continue. Even the return of Roy O’Donovan up front won’t be enough.
