We've gone through all our tips to give you the five best bets you should be placing or using as multi-fillers this long weekend.

AFL – West Coast Eagles v Collingwood Magpies

Saturday 2:30pm

 

The Tip: Collingwood 1-39

 

Why: These teams met in the first week of the finals where West Coast trailed by 10 points at three-quarter-time before prevailing by 16 points. Last week Collingwood beat Richmond by 39 points and it is almost impossible to see either side winning by a big margin.

Horse Racing – Royal Randwick 7 TAB Epsom Handicap

Saturday 4:05pm

 

The Tip: Pierata

 

 

Why: Greg Hickman’s stable star was enormous in the Bill Ritchie last time out, sitting wide the entire race and only going down to Siege Of Quebec in the shadows of the post. Pierata knocked off Kementari two starts back and during the autumn, finished second to that galloper at this track and distance in the Randwick Guineas.

Premier League – Manchester City v Brighton

Sunday 12:00am

 

The Tip: Aguero Anytime Goal Scorer

 

 

Why: With six goals in all competitions this season, it’s no surprise that Sergio Aguero is once again Manchester City’s top goalscorer. While Pep has been rotating his attacking midfielders on a game-by-game basis, Aguero has started every league match this season, and he’s rewarded his manager with the same ruthless efficiency we have become so accustomed to.

Horse Racing – Caulfield Race 8 Underwood Stakes

Sunday 4:30pm

 

The Tip: Blair House

 

 

Why: A highly credentialed horse out of the Charlie Appleby barn, we saw what he was able to do with Jungle Cat first-up last week to win the Sir Rupert Clarke. Has a good turn of foot and is the x-factor here with J Mac aboard. Distance is cherry ripe. Another Group One could be just around the corner.

NRL – Sydney Roosters vs Melbourne Storm

Sunday 7:20pm

 

The Tip: 1-6 (Winning Margin)

 

 

Why: Whichever way you go, the 1-6 margin looks a good bet. There was just eight points separating the teams on For and Against at the end of the regular season, just one point split them in their only encounter of 2018 and the average winning margin has been just 1.6 points in their last 3 matchups. What’s more, two of the past three Grand Finals have been decided by two points or less.
