The summer of sport in Australia keeps getting bigger and better and the Aussies are loving every minute of it. Here’s what we enjoyed the most over this last weekend of sporting action.
Serbia defeats Spain to take out ATP Cup tennis title
The eventual final between Serbia and Spain went down to the last doubles match, but it was the two singles fixtures that made headlines.
Rafael Nadal may be one of the all-time greats, but he fell for the ninth time on hardcourt against Novak Djokovic, who went on to win the final in the doubles.
Now we turn our heads to the Australian Open betting, where world no.1 Ash Barty heads the Aussie hopefuls.
Three from three in A-League’s Super Saturday multi bet
Soccer fans will have enjoyed three good matches of local football on Saturday, but you would have been even happier if you read our A-League Round 14 betting tips.
With three matches to choose from and three tips to put in a multi, we created a $15 parlay that came up trumps thanks to a draw between Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City that payed a whopping $3.75.
Wellington Phoenix got the multi off to a great start by beating the Western Sydney Wanderers 2-0, while Perth Glory brought it home with a 3-0 win over Adelaide United.
Ultimately, it was a great day of both soccer viewing and soccer betting.
Melbourne Stars roll on as Stoinis smashes BBL records
Watching the Melbourne Stars has been a highlight of the Big Bash League season – not because the matches have been good, but because a couple of cult heroes are dominating.
Glenn Maxwell is making runs with an outrageous strike rate, but it was Marcus Stoinis that stole the show as the Stars thumped the Sydney Sixers on Sunday night.
Stoinis faced the first and last ball of the 20 overs, setting a new record for the highest number of runs made in a single Big Bash innings with 147no.
This dominance from Stoinis and Maxwell, neither of whom will feature in Australia’s ODI tour of India, has seen the Stars shorten to $2.25 in the BBL outright betting at online bookies.
$41 roughie Away Game takes out Magic Millions Classic
Luke Currie has done it again in the Magic Millions, winning the race on the back of Away Game, which drifted out to $41 before the jump.
The Magic Millions is the first big meet on the Australian horse racing calendar, and Currie has ridden two out of the last three winners for trainers Ciaron Maher and Dave Eustace.
Away Game won the $2m Magic Millions Classic with great ease in the end, winning by around two lengths from Stellar Pauline and Conceited.
