5 Bets You Should Be Taking This Weekend
Here are five bets to help you get on top of this weekend and fill your multis.
Racing attention has shifted from Sydney to Brisbane and Adelaide, the AFL and NRL seasons head towards the middle third of their seasons, the EPL only has two full matchdays to go and the NBA Conference Semi-finals continue. We've gone through all our experts' tips and found what we think are the five best value tips over this weekend.
NRL - Penrith Panthers vs North Queensland Cowboys
The Tip: Kyle Feldt to Score a Try
Why: The Cowboys' attack has left a lot to be desired this season, however one player who has continued his potency in finding the line is winger Kyle Feldt. Feldt has managed to score 6 tries in the first 8 games this season and comes into this game at a good price of around $2.30. When these two sides met a few weeks back, he scored twice and if the Cowboys can find any attacking rhythm at all, he's always a great chance at putting one down in the corner.
NBA - Golden State Warriors vs New Orleans Pelicans
The Tip: Golden State Warriors -3.5
Why: The Warriors got the job done in Game 2 in a closer affair than we saw in Game 1, but with Curry set to get back to his usual minutes and exploding in the 27 minutes he saw in Game 2, Golden State should simply have too much firepower for the Pelicans. Golden State have too many scoring options and it'll take a monumental effort from New Orleans to stay with them.
Horse Racing – Rosehill Race 3 (1800m)
The Tip: Primitivo to win Rosehill R3
Why: Has been racing in Group and Listed races against some top horses in recent starts and drops back to Benchmark grade here. Never run over the 1800m before but it may well suit. Just needs to tidy up his starts and get away cleanly. If he does that, he should be a great chance to win here.
If you think Primitivo is a good chance to win Rosehill Race 3 and live in an eligible state or territory, you can take advantage of Sportsbet's signup offer where your first deposit of $50 will give you $150 in bonus bets!** You could use the bonus bet on Primitivo and if it wins, you'd net a return of $125!*
Excl. NSW, VIC, SA, WA
AFL - St Kilda Saints vs Melbourne Demons
The Tip: St Kilda +19.5
Why: The Saints have largely not been a good team this season by any metric. Their only win has come against a lowly Brisbane but in the last two rounds they have shown promise with a draw against GWS and last week stayed with Hawthorn for three quarters before being blown out in the fourth. However, Melbourne have hardly been much more impressive. Their 2nd half against Essendon last week was how most expected they would play like this year but that hasn't been the Demons we've seen in any other game, with disappointing performances aplenty. We're happy to take the 19.5 points for St Kilda in what could be an ugly, low-scoring game.
EPL - West Bromwich Albion vs Tottenham Hotspur
The Tip: Tottenham to Win and Both Teams to Score
Why: Despite being dead last on the table, West Brom have found a bit of form in the last month or so, highlighted by their defeat of Manchester United and draw against Liverpool. Needing to win their last two games to have any chance of avoiding relegation, they'll be desperate against a Tottenham side who have a tremendous record away from home lately. Spurs are very likely to continue this form but don't expect West Brom to not put up a fight!
