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 – Caulfield Race 2

Saturday 12:55pm

 

The Tip: Rillito

 

Why: Godolphin mare RILLITO will look to atone for his narrow defeat on this track last start here today. Stormed home but found Sharpness too good on the day when beaten by a nose in a tight finish. Looks a mare with a bright future and will go close to winning here today.

Horse Racing – Randwick Race 6 Winx Stakes

Saturday 3:00pm

 

The Tip: Winx @ $2 with Ladbrokes

 

 

Why: Not much you can say that hasn’t already been said about her past performances. Shooting for 26 straight wins, she’s arguably trialled better than ever prior to this campaign. A good mare can improve even at the age of 7 and she might just be the best we’ve ever seen.

NRL – Sharks v Cowboys

Saturday 7:35pm

 

The Tip: Sharks 1-12

 

Why: The Sharks made a statement last weekend with their 17-14-point win over the Storm. Cronulla has been involved in tight affairs, with six of the past seven matches for them decided by 10 points or less.

 

The Cowboys look to have found some late season form winning 34-30 in a thrilling match over the Broncos. A fallout from that win is Jason Taumalolo copping a one-week suspension for his hit on Jamayne Isaako.

 

 

These matches tend to be closely fought with five of the past seven matches decided by single figure margins. Keep an eye on Gavin Cooper who scored a try in his sixth consecutive game last week.

Premier League – Chelsea v Arsenal

Sunday 2:30am

 

The Tip: Both teams to score

 

Why: We’re not convinced about either sides defence. Sokratis and Shkodran Mustafi don’t look like a centre-back partnership who will be ultra-reliable while under an attacking siege, while their left-back issues remain; Ainsley Maitland-Niles looking horribly exposed before he had to be substituted due to injury. Yes, it was against City, but the signs are not great.

 

 

Similarly with Chelsea, David Luiz’s return to the side was a surprise – particularly in place of the excellent Andreas Christensen – and we’re not convinced it’s the right decision from Sarri. Despite their clean sheet on Saturday, Huddersfield caused Chelsea problems and even hit the post, while the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette have the ability to inflict serious damage on The Blues’ defence.

 

You’ll be brave to plump on either side to win, but both teams to score looks like a great prospect. This should be a fantastic game of football, hopefully providing us with goals in the process.

AFL – Adelaide v North Melbourne

Sunday 4:40pm

 

The Tip: Adelaide win

 

Why: For all the contrast in form and expectation this year from both teams, it is the Crows who look a good bet to win this game and officially end the brave Kangaroos campaign.

 

The Crows have never lost to the Kangaroos at Adelaide Oval, while the Kangaroos have lost their past seven games in Adelaide and haven't won a single game in South Australia since 2011.

 

 

The Crows are only giving up a 19.5-point start at the line and it looks a lovely bet to round out what will hopefully be a winning weekend for punters.
