I will take a multi with some One Day Internationals that are taking place this weekend.
I will combine England to defeat the West indies in the One-Dayer tomorrow night into Afghanistan to beat Ireland into South Africa to defeat Sri Lanka. The multi price is $2.07.
In novelty markets I am backing Chris Gayle to be the leading runscorer for the West Indies at $3.50 and Quinton de Kock to top score for South Africa at $3.80.
The first of the one-dayers between Australia and India gets underway at 4.00pm on Saturday and Australia should head in with some confidence after winning the T20 series 2-0 earlier in the week.
I think the market is a little too slanted in favour of the hosts and I am having a small speck on Australia at $2.70.
In recent times the team batting second have had a tremendous record in white ball cricket and the toss will have a big bearing on the winner.
Virat Kohli is my standard play for most runs India at $3 and fresh off his 113 not out off just 55 balls on Wednesday night I will have something on Glenn Maxwell to top score for Australia at $6.50.
Personally I don’t have significant punting interest until round 1 of the AFL season proper commences but if you are keen for a bet on the matches this weekend I would be looking at a multi with West Coast to beat Geelong in the JLT match this afternoon into Fremantle in the AFLW to cover the line and beat the Bulldogs by 8 points or more. The multi price is $2.85.
Perth and Melbourne both cashed in on home floor advantage in their semi-finals overnight winning comfortably. In the next of the semi-final match-ups roles are reversed and Brisbane and Sydney have the home court in their favour. I am going to take a multi with Perth to beat Brisbane into Sydney to defeat Melbourne. The multi is paying $3.58.
This weekend I will opt for a three leg multi which requires Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool to all win their matches. The multi price is $2.73.
I am taking a multi with the Perth Glory to beat Melbourne City and Melbourne Victory to prevail over Newcastle. The multi price is $4.55.
I’ll have a three leg multi which needs Jon Jones, Ben Askren and Mickey Gall to win their respective bouts. The multi is paying $2.07.
A stellar day of Racing at both Flemington and Randwick highlighted by the mighty mare Winx looking to make it 31 straight victories.
My best bets of the weekend are as follows :
Flemington Saturday Race 2 Number 5 Schabau (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $2.00) : Former German stayer who has made an impression since arriving in Australia winning both starts in this country, both over 2000 metres here at Flemington. Steps out to 2600 metres in this which looks perfect and draws perfectly in barrier three to get a soft run. Should continue to progress through the classes and looks too smart for this lineup.
Flemington Saturday Race 3 Number 7 She’s So High (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $2.35) : Talented mare who has been bomb-proof fresh in the past winning both first up visits to the racetrack. Is 1 for 1 at this track and 1 for 1 at this distance and warmed up for this with a nice win in a recent 800 metre barrier trial. Will take some stopping.
Randwick Saturday Race 7 Number 12 Pohutukawa (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $4.60) : First run back from a break was exceptional running sizzling splits on the way home when placed in the Group 2 Lightfinger Stakes. Is now second up into this and has won both previous tries in that capacity. James Cummings has his team firing at the minute and this filly can continue his wonderful run.
Randwick Saturday Race 9 Number 3 Maximus (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $5.50) : We liked this fellow last start at double figure odds when he charged home in the concluding stages only to go down by the narrowest of margins. Second up he has had three tries for two wins and a placing and at each way odds is sure to give you a great run for your money again. I am conceding that Renewal is the danger and they look a nice quinella play but at the value I’ll stick with Max.
Mandurah Friday Race 10 Number 1 Incredible Hero (No Fixed Odds Available) : Speedy beginner who should shoot straight to the top from this draw. Other nice bets look to be 5-3 Kiss Me Linda, 7-4 Dusty Mac and at value 9-7 Hello Harry.
