HORSES

Moonee Valley Race 2 (Friday night) – Mdn Plate – 1200m

#4 Silly Point – $3.90

Silly Point might be a terrible place to field, but looks an excellent betting proposition. No luck at a vital stage last start, and still found the line well. With Craig Williams in the saddle and an inside gate, it looks the one to beat. Take advantage of ‘The Switch’ promo at Ladbrokes (double your winnings or bonus back for 2nd or 3rd).

Caulfield Race 3 – Blue Diamond Prelude (C&G) – 1100m

#7 Jigsaw – $3.80 

Ultra impressive winning on debut, when beating Artorius, who has since won at Sandown. Should roll forward in what should be a slowly run race, and receive all the favours in running. I suggest you take advantage of ‘The Switch’ promo at Ladbrokes (double your winnings or bonus back for 2nd or 3rd).

Caulfield Race 8 – Group 1 C.F Orr Stakes – 1400m

#2 Sir Dragonet – $2.70 

Won the Cox Plate in its first-ever Australian start, then just didn’t run out the trip in ‘the cup’. 1400m first up is unknown, but like Ricky Ponting in kanga cricket, ‘The Dragon’ looks a class above its rivals.

Randwick Race 7 – Inglis Sprint – 1200m

#1 Ole Kirk – $2.40 

Caulfield Guineas winner last prep. This looks an ideal target 1st up. Should be keenly run early, which will set it up for J Mac to have the last crack at them. Use your ODDS BOOST, if you can, as this looks the best bet around the country. 

SPORTS

Cricket

Big Bash Final – Sydney Sixers VS Perth Scorchers

Same Game Multi – @$4.02 (Ladbrokes promo – 3+ leg Same Game Multi, 1 leg fails, money back)

The Scorchers were absolutely dominant when belting up the Heat, but the Sixers will prove much stiffer opposition. I can’t split them, this Same Game Multi looks the best way to attack the final from a betting perspective. Perth Scorchers to have the highest score after 6 overs, Josh Phillippe to score 10+ runs, Mitchell Marsh to score 10+ runs.

NFL

Super Bowl LV – Tampa Bay Buccaneers VS Kansas City Chiefs


This shapes as one of the greatest sporting events in recent memory. Tipping a back and forth type contest, with plenty of points. Here’s how we plan to fill up on the Super Bowl.

Player Pick  – Tom Brady to Throw 1+ Td in Each Half @2.50

The GOAT promo, with Ladbrokes looks great value. I’ll be amazed if Brady doesn’t throw a TD in each half. 

Winner/Over-Under Double – Chiefs/Over 56.5 – @$3 

Anytime Touchdown Scorer – Cameron Brate (Tampa Bay) – @$4.40 Ladbrokes


For a bit of fun and banter, we’re taking two Super Bowl Novelty Prop bets

Joe Biden to tweet over 1.5 times @$3.40

Yellow/green/lime, in the colour of the Gatorade dunked over the winning coach @$5.50.
