5 Best Bets You Can't Overlook This Weekend
We've gone through our tips and have found you the five best bets for the weekend from horse racing, World Cup, AFL and NRL.
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 – Rosehill Race 2
The Tip: No4 Bocelli
Why: Lightly raced gelding BOCELLI has won three out of his five starts and will be looking to make it successive victories here today after a good 1.4 length victory at Goulburn last start.
Horse Racing – Caulfield Race 8
The Tip: No3 Malaise
Why: Craig Williams has been hot the past week or so and we are tipping he will steer Malaise home in this race. Williams couldn’t find a clear run at the right time in the gelding’s first-up run at Moonee Valley on June 16 when he stuck to the rails. Eventually the pair finished third but should have been far closer.
AFL – Adelaide v West Coast
The Tip: Adelaide Crows to win
Why: The bye came at the perfect time for the Adelaide Crows after they were humiliated by 56 points against Hawthorn in a game where they managed to kick just four goals for the match.
One shining light for the Crows in the heavy loss to Hawthorn was the form of Matt Crouch who managed to gain 30 disposals and he looks a terrific chance at getting the most touches here.
West Coast was appalling last week against Essendon and despite having lost against one team all season heading into Round 14 we anticipate that they will have a drastic fall in the second half of the season and will miss the top four.
World Cup - France v Argentina
The Tip: France to win
Why: France have been far from convincing at this tournament but their supporters will say that they’ve played sides that have set up very defensively with the intention of picking up a point and it could well be that Argentina will suit them better. Jorge Sampaoli’s charges are here thanks to the heroics of Marcos Rojo but they put a lot into that game, whereas France were able to rotate against Denmark and their players sauntered around for 90 minutes so they should be the fresher side.
History is on their side too as European sides have a W4-D3-L1 record against CONMEBOL opponents at this stage since 1990, whilst higher ranked European sides against other confederations remain unbeaten in Last 16 games over the same period (W10-D8). France have lost only three of their last 36 games, whilst they’ve won six of their 10 matches against teams we have ranked in the world’s top 15 since 2016 as they kept a clean sheet in half of these.
NRL – South Sydney v Cowboys
The Tip: Souths Win
Why: The Bunnies had a stack of players involved in rep duty last week including Greg Inglis and the three Burgess brothers and that may play a part in this match, however, unless they’re playing injured the six day turnaround actually suits them.
Souths are aiming for eight straight wins for the first time since 1989 and such has been the form of the Rabbitohs that they are now into premiership favouritism with the majority of bookies now installing them at the top of the market.
