This Weekends 5 Best Bets: 29th - 30th June
This weekend's best bets cover the NRL, AFL, Cricket World Cup and UFC.
NRL – Titans v Manly
The Tip: Manly
Why: With Manly’s big three of DCE and the Turbo brothers in top form, they have an impressive platform to build a solid finals charge from and I think their strike power will be too much for the inconsistent Titans.
AFL – Collingwood v North Melbourne
The Tip: Collingwood 1-39
Why: Recent history indicates the Roos could be in trouble with each of their last two meetings seeing the Magpies triumph by margins in excess of 50 points. With that being said, recent form perhaps paints a better picture this time around given North Melbourne has not lost any of its last eight matches by more than 24 points.
Cricket World Cup – Australia v New Zealand
The Tip: Australia
Why: Australia loom as the biggest test the Kiwis have faced so far and they’ll need a significant improvement from their batting lineup if they’re to knock off the Aussies as they did in the 2015 World Cup group stage.
UFC – Ngannou v Dos Santos
The Tip: Ngannou
Why: As much as Dos Santos is a better technical fighter, Ngannou can end this with just one punch. JDS enjoys a good stand-up fight, but he also gets hit in those fights. The time feels right for Ngannou to announce his presence with authority again.
NRL – Bulldogs v Sharks
The Tip: Sharks -8
Why: The Bulldogs have the worst attack and defence in 2019. Cronulla has won their last five against Canterbury.
