bet on racing and sports

Here are The Wolf’s best racing and sports tips!

The Wolf’s best bet is a Group 3 placegetter, who will be very hard to beat down in grade at Muswellbrook today.

Muswellbrook Thoroughbred Bet (4:25pm AEDT)

Guard Of Honour (Race 5, No.1) is a Group 3 placegetter who should relish the severe drop in class here.

Last prep he narrowly placed behind Tactical Advantage and Man From Uncle, both of which would start a near odds on favourite to win this.

The form around him is strong and his two trial wins leading into this suggest to The Wolf that he is ready to fire first up.

Expect he’ll settle just behind the leaders before peeling out wide to takeover in the straight

Confidence Level: 

Recommended Price: $2.30 

Moonee Valley Thoroughbred Bet (8:30pm AEDT)

Camila Lucinda (Race 5, No.12) is a speedy filly from the David Brideoake stable who backs up here off a dominant win last start over 1000m at Moonee Valley.

The step back in distance is no problem and having drawn barrier 2 we can expect Stephanie Thornton to send her straight to the front.

She’ll make her own luck out in front and The Wolf is confident that she’ll prove very tough to run down.

Confidence Level: 

Recommended Price: $5.50 

 

NFL: New Orleans @ Atlanta (12:25pm AEDT)

The final team line-ups will have a huge impact on this crucial NFC South clash.

The Saints currently sit on top at 9-3, while the playoff hopes could be dashed for the 7-5 Falcons if they lose to the Saints in Thursday Night Football.

New Orleans will be sweating on the fitness of top corner back Marshon Lattimore, who missed last week’s clash against the Panthers and will be need to be at 100% to stop Julio Jones.

The Saints also have a few other injury concerns surrounding the likes of Terron Armstead and Mark Ingram.

Once again late team news will be vital.

The Falcons top corner Desmond Trufant has passed the concussion protocol and will look to make a big impact here.

It’s a real toss of the coin job, but The Wolf has settled on the desperate Falcons at home.

The Falcons are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games and will lift for the big occasion against their divisional rivals.

Confidence Level:

Recommended Price: $1.91 

 

Bendigo Greyhound Bet (4:22pm AEDT)

Promises Kept (Race 7, No.8) has won and placed from his three starts at the track and distance.

He is a Group 2 winner and looks very well placed against this line-up today.

He’ll be suited by the wide draw and should return to the winner’s circle here.

Confidence Level:

Recommended Price: $3.50
