We’ve gone through the tips from our experts and collated your best bets for the weekend. You with us? Ok here goes.

AFL – West Coast Eagles v Melbourne Demons

Saturday 3:20pm

 

The Tip: West Coast

 

Why: People are overlooking the West Coast Eagles, who finished second on the ladder this season and have turned Optus Stadium into a fortress.

 

The Eagles did lose to the Demons in Round 22 but, on that occasion, the Eagles were missing multiple Coleman Medal-winning forward Josh Kennedy and lost key forward Jack Darling early in the match through injury.

Horse Racing – Rosehill Race 7 Golden Rose Stakes

Saturday 3:50pm

 

The Tip: Graff

 

 

Why: GRAFF should be unbeaten and can atone his last start defeat in today’s Group One. Beaten by less than a length behind Lean Mean Machine on this track last start when three-wide the trip, he still hit the front inside the final 100 metres only to be nailed late by the winner. Has the form and loves racing here. Looks the winner and is a serious galloper.

Horse Racing – Caulfield Race 8 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes

Saturday 4:50pm

 

The Tip: Land of Plenty

 

 

Why: Open race with plenty of chances but sticking with the Darren Weir-trained LAND OF PLENTY that’s racing in great form and looks well placed to be very competitive in today’s Group One over the 1400m. Looked good when winning by a length at Moonee Valley last start defeating Peaceful State. Has a good turn of foot. Rates on top.

NRL – Roosters v Rabbitohs

Saturday 7:40pm

 

The Tip: Roosters

 

 

Why: Trent Robinson’s side has won four of the past five derbies and 17 of their last 22 games at Allianz. Souths will be lining up for their third straight finals game after a narrow 13-12 win over the Dragons last week, thanks to Adam Reynolds and his three field goals.

 

We are leaning towards the chooks though despite missing gun players Latrell Mitchell and Dylan Napa. They’re fresh, they’ve had the week off and with Cooper Cronk pulling the strings we can see them winning a nail-biter against the bunnies who look a bit flat.

Boxing – Anthony Joshua vs Alexander Povetkin

Sunday 3:00am

 

The Tip: Joshua by Unanimous decision

 

 

Why: Despite Povetkin’s pedigree, we expect Joshua to win. He could easily outpoint Povetkin by boxing a similar fight to the Parker fight, using his jab and controlling the range & distance and his strength up close to cruise to a unanimous decision; however, it does feels like a fight Joshua might use to make a statement.

 

Stopping Povetkin (despite the fact he’s 39) would be an impressive feat and would reinvigorate AJ’s stock at a time when some have jumped off the bandwagon.
