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

The Wolf’s racing best bets rand 1st and 2nd on Monday. Tuesday’s best stormed home last time out and should be earning his maiden win today.

Benalla Thoroughbred Bet (2:30pm AEDT)

Now I’m A Man (Race 3, No.10)caught the eye with a terrific second placing behind Captain Jimmy in a maiden on Cranbourne Cup day.

He came from well back in the field on that occasion to hit the line hard over 1400m.

The step up to a mile should be ideal now and while he is drawn wide, Benalla is certainly a track where horses can make ground from back in the field.

Confidence Level: 

Recommended Price: $2.60 

Grafton Thoroughbred Bet (5:30pm AEDT)

He may not quite be an aeroplane but I’m A Jet (Race 8, No.3) is a very good country sprinter, having won 5 of his 14 lifetime starts.

Last time out trainer Mick O’Neill took him to town where he ran creditably behind subsequent Group 3 winner White Moss.

This race is much easier and with even luck from the wide draw he should take all the beating.

Confidence Level:

Recommended Price: $5.50 

 

NBA: Toronto @ Portland (1:05pm AEDT)

The Blazers could very easily be 6-0 on this season with their two defeats coming by a total of only 4 combined points.

They have been getting the jump on teams early and are one of the deadliest teams in the NBA from beyond the arc shooting the 3-ball at 44.2% (2nd) with CJ McCollum shooting a ridiculous 56.5% (1st for players with 12 or more makes).

It is an area where the Blazers will have a winning edge. Toronto are 28th in 3-point percentage and with the Blazers ranked 4th in 3-point defence we will not see the Raptors make more than a handful of shots from outside.

A Portland WIN at home is great value.

Confidence Level:

Recommended Price: $1.77 

 

Gawler Greyhound Bet (1:24pm AEDT)

Waltharius (Race 5, No.2) has won 4 of his last 5 and should have little trouble handling the step up in grade.

In 2 of his last 3 starts here we have seen him ping the lids and lead from ‘go to whoa’.

The Wolf is expecting him to get to the front again meaning he will take some beating.

Confidence Level:

Recommended Price: $5.50
