5 Easter-Inspired Best Bets
This weekend's best bets cover horse racing, greyhounds, NRL, AFL and Premier League
NRL – Canterbury Bulldogs v South Sydney Rabbitohs
The Tip: Rabbitohs
Why: Souths boast NRL’s second-highest points scored while the Bulldogs have conceded the most points. Souths have won 4 of their last 5 head-to-head matches against the Dogs, with 3 of these wins coming 13+.
Horse Racing – Randwick Race 7 All Aged Stakes
The Tip: Osborne Bulls
Why: Doesn’t know how to run a bad race this galloper. He’s placed 2nd three times at Group 1 level this campaign in as many runs. He could’ve been considered unlucky at his first two in the Lightning and Newmarket, getting going too late. Bowman stuck to the inside and got a lovely passage through last-start in the TJ. He was challenging for the lead momentarily until Santa Ana Lane exploded late.
AFL – Richmond v Sydney
The Tip: Richmond
Why: The big concern for the Swans is their inability to score, ranking 14th in points for through the first four weeks and despite the fact Alex Rance is missing, the Tigers still boast a formidable defence that is hard to score against and comfortably took care of the Swans at the corresponding fixture last season.
Greyhounds – Golden Easter Egg Final
The Tip: Federal Lilly
Why: Pinged the lids to lead throughout in her semi last week and shapes as the one to beat here. Has won 14 of 39 in her career, the last three in a row, and is certainly capable from box five having won 33 percent of her starts from there. Is blessed with good box speed and if she leads she goes very close to winning.
Premier League – Man City v Tottenham
The Tip: Jesus Anytime Goalscorer
Why: After Spurs ended City’s chance at the quadruple, you can expect City to come out firing for revenge just a couple of days after their unforgettable Champions League clash. With Pochettino expected to rest his stars for Champions League, Jesus could have a field day against a shaky Spurs defence.
