A-League – Melbourne Victory vs Western Sydney Wanderers

Saturday 7:05pm


The Tip: Melbourne Victory


Why: The Wanderers haven’t beaten Victory in their past eight clashes and what’s worse is the fact they have consistently leaked goals against the current A-league champions. Victory have won four of the past six games between the sides and have put a minimum three goals past the Red and Black defence in those matches.


In the past two years, Melbourne Victory has beaten Western Sydney by an accumulated score of 13-2.

Horse Racing – Ascot Race 7 Winterbottom Stakes

Saturday 7:50pm (AEDT)


The Tip: Viddora



Why: Aiming for back-to-back Winterbottom’s and we are backing her to become just the seventh horse to do so. The mare won a trial at Cranbourne in preparation for this while her last start was in The Everest where she failed to handle the wet conditions. Won the Moir brilliantly first-up. Drawn five she is will be in the first half of the field and be extremely hard to hold out.

Boxing – Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder

Sunday 4:00pm


The Tip: Tyson Fury



Why: Looking purely for value, it’s hard not to side with Tyson Fury. He’s undoubtedly the more gifted boxer of the two and has demonstrated his world class credentials in the past, when going over to Germany to outpoint Wladimir Klitschko.


If this fight was taking place a short time after Fury’s win against Klitschko you can imagine him going into this as favourite. His time out may have affected him negatively but on the flipside it may not have had much impact; in which case you can get $2.60 on an undefeated, lineal heavyweight world champion against a wild, messy puncher with limited boxing ability.

UFC Fight Night 142 – Tuivasa v Dos Santos

Sunday 4:00pm


The Tip: Tai Tuivasa by KO



Why: Tuivasa heads into this fight unbeaten and having knocked out his first seven opponents when turning pro. Dos Santos is his hardest yet despite getting on in age and having traded wins and losses since losing his Heavyweight strap in 2012.


Tui’s last opponent Andrei Arlovski was the first man to ever make it out of the first round with him, however, was no match for the Western Sydney local, who prevailed with a decision victory.

Premier League – Chelsea v Fulham

Sunday 11:00pm


The Tip: Chelsea to win by 2 or more goals



Why: Considering the Cottagers have conceded three goals or more in half of their away games this season, I’m confident we will see something similar on Sunday.


Sarri’s side average 2.2 goals-per-game this season, and with Olivier Giroud likely to be reinstated to the starting XI, Chelsea’s goalscoring capabilities skyrocket; Alvaro Morata’s confidence (and adjudication of the offside line) is shot to pieces.


Eden Hazard is also set to return after being ruled out of Thursday’s Europa League match, which is obviously a massive boost.
