NBA – Toronto Raptors @ Golden State Warriors

Saturday 11:00am

The Tip: Toronto

Why: The Raptors will take huge confidence and belief in themselves from the 123-109 win, which moved their record against the Warriors this season to 4-1 and have now won six of their past seven overall.

NBA Finals: Game 4 Preview

AFL – Carlton v Brisbane

Saturday 1:45pm

The Tip: Brisbane

Why: Carlton enters Saturday’s fixture having suffered defeat in 39 of its last 43 matches. Brisbane holds a strong recent record against Carlton, having claimed victory in 6 of their last 7 meetings, with three of those triumphs coming by a margin of at least five goals.

AFL Rd 12 Previews

UFC 238 – Tai Tuivasa v Blagoy Ivanov

Sunday 12:15pm

The Tip: Tai Tuivasa

Why: In a fight that looks like it will be played out on their feet, Tuivasa looks like he’ll be the guy pushing forward, throwing more shots and has greater power in his shots compared to Ivanov.

Cricket World Cup – India v Australia

Sunday 7:30pm

The Tip: India

Why: India have a chip on their shoulder from losing the ODI series to Australia which suits Kohli’s siege mentality. Sharma looked brilliant against South Africa and Bumrah will be confident with the new ball after seeing the way Australia's top order capitulated against the Windies.

NRL – Bulldogs v Dragons

Monday 4:00pm

The Tip: Dragons

Why: These sides met in round five with the Dragons thrashing Canterbury 40-4. The Bulldogs have scored 10 points or fewer in 7 of their 12 matches this season.
