Punters Flock To Federer

Roger Federer started the Australian Open his longest price to win the title since 2001, but has emerged as one of the main threats to Novak Djokovic ($1.75).

The four-time Australian Open champion has firmed from $13 to $7 on the back of his comprehensive fourth-round win against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Today one punter parted with $30,000 @ $7 on Federer to win the Grand Slam; they will collect $210,000 if he wins.

The world no. 6 will is $1.80 to beat and Andy Murray ($2.05) in his next match and will start favourite against him for the first time in nearly 18 months.

If Federer wins he is likely to meet Rafael Nadal, who he has only beaten once in his last six matches on hard court.

Aussie Ashes Whitewash Now Backed In To $1.60

Australia ($1.60) has opened their shortest price of the Ashes series to win the fifth Test against England ($4.50) at the SCG starting on Friday.


The hosts have a stunning record at the SCG, winning nine of their past 10 Tests at the venue. Their only loss in that period was at the hands of England in 2011.


A series clean sweep for Australia looks almost inevitable, a result that opened $81 in August.


“It has been a long and sometimes nervous wait for the punter who had $400 @ $51 back in October on an Aussie 5-0 series result,” said TAB’s Matt Jenkins.


“There would have been some anxious moments when the Aussies drifted to $4.75 on the third day as England started to build a lead after lunch.”


Nathan Lyon’s five-wicket haul swung the match back to the home team who started the fourth day $1.14 to win the Boxing Day Test.

Oakleigh Girl Back In Favour To Win Magic Millions

Former Magic Millions favourite Oakleigh Girl is once again attracting the interest of punters despite finishing fourth behind new favourite Unencumbered in last Saturday’s B. J. McLachlan Stakes at Doomben.


The Dan Bougoure-trained filly has firmed from $13 into $11 at Sportingbet courtesy of some significant wagers. She was a $4.80 favourite for the Magic Millions prior to her last start.


“We’ve been hit with a stack of bets since we pushed her price out after Saturday including one of $4,000 to collect over $50,000,” Sportingbet spokesman Andrew Brown said.


“There was still plenty to like about her last start and punters clearly expect she’ll improve from it,” Brown said.


Unencumbered has also firmed slightly from $4.60 into $4.50 at Sportingbet, while debut winner Invisible remains a solid $6 second favourite.

Six Punters Looking For A 100-1 Ashes Collect In Sydney

Six punters with online bookmaker Sportsbet Australia are in line for a cracking start to 2014 should the Aussie cricket team continue on their winning ways and beat the Poms in this week’s 5th Ashes Test.

Prior to the previous Ashes series getting underway in England earlier this year, Sportsbet was offering markets on the combined series result of that series and the current one.

With the Poms winning 3-0 on home soil, the six punters who backed Australia to win 5-3 are one Test victory from a tidy collect.

One punter in particular stands to turn a $5.00 bet into a tidy $505 collect after taking the $101 odds that were on offer.

“These punters must have some type of crystal ball or something. Did anyone think our boys could win this series 5-0? If it comes off, it’s some very impressive punting,” Sportsbet’s Ben Hawes said.

“Ten punters also backed Australia 4-3 so they’ll no doubt have mixed emotions ahead of the Sydney Test.”

The most popular option in the market was the Poms claiming a 10-zip whitewash, followed by England 8-0 and 9-0. The best backed option with Australia winning was 6-2.

The Aussies are into $1.68 to win the Sydney Test and have attracted almost seven times the money to the Poms, who are $4.50 outsiders. Sportsbet Australia will refund punters their match bet on the Test if it ends before the fifth day.

How Many Australian Open’s Left In Hewitt?

As he prepares for the 2014 Australian Open by hitting the court in this week’s Brisbane International, we all want to know how many more times we’ll see Lleyton Hewitt flying the flag for Australia at the Melbourne Grand Slam.

According to online bookmaker Sportsbet Australia it looks like this year will not be the last time we find ourselves sitting up until all hours of the night cheering him on.

Hewitt playing in two more Australian Open’s is the $1.91 favourite, with 2014 being his last year next at $2.20. Three or more Australian Open appearances rounds out the market at $6.00.

“Watching Lleyton fight his way to upset wins at the Australian Open has become a summer institution. In good news, our market says we’re set for a few more late nights shouting c’mon at the TV,” Sportsbet’s Ben Hawes said.

Hewitt is a $23 shot to win the Brisbane International, where Roger Federer is paying just $1.91. Hewitt’s current quote for the Australian Open is $176.

Punters Can’t Split Pop Culture & Black Tycoon In Perth Cup

Punters with online bookmaker Sportsbet Australia are split on who they think will take out tomorrow’s Perth Cup at Ascot with a host of runners attracting backing in the last 24 hours.

Pop Culture and Black Tycoon both remain joint favourites but have each eased out to $5.50. The two key runners to have firmed are Rohan, who’s into $6.00 from $6.50, and Marden, who’s moved from $11 into $9.50.

Knightlike and Kincalpe, both with solid punter support, remain steady at $7.00 and $9.00 respectively. Operational has also been a big mover, into $21 from $41.

“Before the barrier draw, the money was all for Kincaple but now there’s been steady backing for all of the top six hopes, with Marden having its head out in front,” Sportsbet’s Ben Hawes said.

Sportsbet will refund punters their bet on the Perth Cup if their selection finishes 2nd.

What Punters Are Betting On in 2014

With only hours remaining until 2013 comes to an end, online bookmaker Sportsbet Australia has looked into what Aussie punters think 2014 has in store.

Some trends won’t be a surprise, while some might make you choke on your corn flakes. Without further ado, here’s what the punters are backing to happen across sport, racing, entertainment and politics next year:


·         A two horse race for the 2014 Premiership between Hawthorn ($4.75) & Fremantle ($5.00). Both have attracted double the money to win the flag than any other side with Freo attracting $3,000 more than the Hawks

·         St. Kilda ($3.10) will run last. They’ve attracted double the money than any other team to win the least amount of games in 2014. The Western Bulldogs ($61) and GWS Giants ($1.91) are the next best backed

·         Jack Gunston will win the Coleman Medal. He’s attracted 3 times the money than anyone else at the big odds of $21

·         Carlton’s Chris Judd won’t find the fountain of youth in the pre-season, attracting one bet of 75 cents to win the Brownlow Medal


·         The Roosters ($5.00) will cruise to back-to-back premierships. Punters have staked 3 times more money on the Chooks to win the Premiership than any other side. Souths are only the 5th best supported team

·         The wooden spoon will head from Parramatta to the Wests Tigers despite the Tigers being $5.00 shots for least wins and the Eels the $3.50 favourite

·         New South Wales to finally end Queensland’s stranglehold on State of Origin. Although they’re $2.30 outsiders to win the 2014 series, punters have wagered more money on NSW to win than the Maroons

·         Sharks, Bulldogs, Dragons, Cowboys & Raiders are no chance of winning the Auckland Nines, hardly attracting a bet. Punters say that the Warriors are the team to beat


·         Gai Waterhouse will win consecutive Melbourne Cups with Fiorente, who is best backed to repeat its 2013 feat at the odds of $21

·         Shamus Award will repeat its 2013 Cox Plate win in 2014 with punters wagering two times more money on the four-year-old than any other runner


·         Tim Cahill ($2.20) and not Lucas Neill ($2.40) will be captain of the Socceroos for their opening FIFA World Cup match

·         6 punters think the Socceroos at $34 will qualify from Group B

·         Brazil ($4.33) will win the World Cup, with Germany ($6.00) their biggest threat


·         Lorde will win the 2013 Triple J Hottest 100 in a canter after being backed from $1.50 into $1.15

·         Cate Blanchett will be an Oscar winner, taking home Best Actress for her role in Blue Jasmine

Current Affairs:

·         There will be no interest rates cuts in 2014. 99% of money bet on how many cuts we’ll see in 2014 has been on zero

·         Christine Milne ($1.45) heavily backed to be the first leader to go – so much so she’s attracted 98% of all money staked on the market

·         The Liberals ($1.30) will win the South Australian state election having attracted double the money than Labor ($3.10)

Punters Plunge On Unencumbered For Magic Millions

Magic Millions contender Unencumbered has been crunched by punters to win his final lead-up at Doomben on Saturday.

Online bookmaker Sportsbet reports heavy support for the Testa Rossa colt forcing his price from $11 into $5.00. Such is the volume of money, favourite Oakleigh girl has eased from $2.30 to $2.70.

“It’s been a huge go for Unencumbered. He’s received about eight times more support than any other runner and his price has just tumbled and looks set to continue to,” Sportsbet’s Ben Hawes said.

The Gai Waterhouse trained Echo Gal ($3.30) rounds out the top three for Saturday’s race.

However, Echo Gal is the $4.20 favourite for next month’s Magic Millions Classic on the Gold Coast. Oakleigh Girl ($4.40) and Unencumbered ($8.00) follow, but that could change after Doomben.

Kincaple Early Favourite For Perth Cup

Veteran stayer Kincaple has swept into Perth Cup contention after his game second to rising star Ihtsahymn last Saturday.

Kincaple ($6.50), who was run down late in the CB Cox Stakes, is the best backed cup runner with online bookmaker Sportsbet.

West Australian Derby winner Rohan ($5.50), who was third in the Cox Stakes, heads the betting from Black Tycoon ($6.00).

Pop Culture ($7.00) is the second most popular with punters and there has been a nibble for longshot Fancy Feet ($26).

“Kincaple is an eight-year-old, but the punters don’t seem to care. He was very game in the Cox and the 2400m of the Cup will be right up his alley,” Sportsbet’s Ben Hawes said.
