This Weekend's 5 Best Bets

This weekend's best bets cover the NBA, UFC, EPL, NRL & the Kentucky Derby

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks @ Boston Celtics

Saturday 10:05am

The Tip: Milwaukee +1.5

Why: The series is tied 1-1 as we head to the Game Three in Boston. The line is very close between these two teams but the difference between the teams is so vast that not even home court advantage can bring them closer together in my view. If the Bucks can help Giannis rampage around this disjointed Celtics team then they'll win. Take the Bucks to cover here.

NBA Finals Previews

NRL: Sydney Roosters vs. Wests Tigers

Saturday 7:30pm

The Tip: Daniel Tupou to score

Why: Daniel Tupou loves the Tigers – he’s scored 14 tries in just 9 matches against them. If you needed any more convincing, he has scored at least one try everytime he has faced the Tigers at home.

Saturday NRL Previews

Horse Racing: 2019 Kentucky Derby

Sunday 8:05am

The Tip: Roadster

Why: Roadster has less experience than his rivals entering the contest, although he does have three victories under his belt. He is a horse trained by Bob Baffert, a five time Ketucky Derby winning trainer (including training last year's winner, Justify). He has proved his quality at the Santa Anita Derby as he defeated his stable-mate Game Winner by half-a-length. 

Daily Horse Racing Tips

EPL: Arsenal v Brighton

Monday 1:30am

The Tip: Arsenal to win

Why:  In their 11 away matches against top-six opposition since the start of last season, Brighton have lost every game, scoring just twice. The Seagulls ended a club-record goalless run of just under 12 hours against Newcastle last weekend, but there is absolutely no chance they find a net against Arsenal – regardless of the form the Gunners have been in.

Sunday EPL Previews

UFC: Al Iaquinta vs. Donald Cerrone

Sunday 10:00am

The Tip: "Raging" Al Iaquita

Why: He’s just about as tough as they come and his gas tank holds up against the best, as seen in his last two bouts against Khabib Nurmagomedov and Kevin Lee. If he can defend his back as well as he has done, he should be able to avoid Cerrone’s submission threat. Coupled with some very good wrestling and solid striking, he’s not the more glamorous of guys to bet on, but he gets the job done.
