BEST BETS – A-LEAGUE
Friday night and Brisbane begins its delightful jaunt home to the end of the season with a match against Western Sydney. The Wanderers will be flying after a huge win over Sydney FC but will need to be on guard against a letdown. We reckon this match will likely follow the same script we have seen in Roar games this season, with a low scoring affair decided by a moment of brilliance. We will be all over the Roar at $2.45 to get up as they look to begin their charge to the finals.
And on Sunday evening Melbourne City will take a trip to Perth to negate the Glory’s game in hand in this top of the ladder clash. This will be a character-building couple of weeks for the reigning Premiers as they face Melbourne City, Sydney FC and have another Asian Champions League match as well. With both sides desperate to avoid defeat this one might be closer, a case of them cancelling each other out and getting a draw at $3.40 gets our vote.
BEST BETS – HORSES
Super Saturday at Flemington (on Saturday…..) sees a cracking card and who can split the big ones. In the Newmarket Handicap, we will be onboard No.4 The Inevitable. Looks set to live up to his name and get this done first up at the handy odds of $9.00 having been set for this, and bringing in a real handy winning strike rate. Then in the Australian Cup, we will be on No.5 Kings Will Dream. Have followed him all this prep where he has gone close both times, and now 3rd up over this distance, we are frothing at the mouth to back him at $7.00 for the win.
