With the ATP Cup wrapping up over the past week, the focus comes off tennis for this weekend and moves towards the year’s biggest event yet. We mostly move offshore for this weekend, although there is still plenty of A-League, NBL and other Australian sports to get stuck into.

You have to admit, you want to see Conor McGregor back at his best, and this is the platform for ‘The Notorious’ to get there.

Final four battle for Super Bowl spots in NFL Playoffs
Only four teams remain in the race for the Super Bowl, America’s biggest sporting event. The Tennessee Titans will face the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Conference Championship, whilst the Green Bay Packers will battle the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC title.
Starting the NFL Playoffs at $41 to win Super Bowl LIV, the Titans have done an amazing job to still be in the running. They are now paying $8 with Sportsbet.
The San Francisco 49ers also started the season at $41 in Super Bowl betting, entered the finals at $5 and are now only paying $2.50. This is a massive rise for the 49ers, who are our tip to win it all.
Advantage Australia in India ODI series
If you have nothing to do on most mornings and find you are staying up late at night, maybe you should catch the India vs Australia ODI series.
The matches start at 7pm AEDT and continue until around 3am the next morning, and those who put in the hours on Tuesday night were treated to a masterclass from the in-form Aussies.
The first match could not have gone better if it was scripted. Virat Kohli went out for 16 and the tourists didn’t lose a wicket chasing 255, which David Warner and Aaron Finch made in only 37 overs.
The series resumes on Friday night in Rajkot and concludes with Sunday’s clash in Bengaluru.

The first derby finished with an unforgettable Super Over as the Sixers got up by a single run. Can they do it again this weekend and complete the double?
