The Friday Flutter: Horses and Huskies!

Posted at 17:41 2010-10-22

We’re back with another Friday flutter! The PokerNetwork crew has been back on the grind all week looking to bring you some winners across the weekend and we think we’ve found a few nice little selections to boost your account balance with your favourite bookie!

Horse Racing: Friday and Saturday

Plenty of selections from Sean Callander this weekend. His best pick goes Friday night at the Melton Trots (don’t worry we’re not quite making selections from the Cannington dogs just yet!) with Smudge Bromac (Melton race 6 #1) looking to make it three wins on the trot. (Aren’t we clever?)

If you are just reading this on Saturday morning, you should read us earlier. But for the latecomers Callander won’t completely leave you out of the loop. Look for the following horses in Melbourne and Sydney on Saturday:

Moonee Valley:
R2 #5 Marvellous Miss (E/W)
R4 #8 Rockpecker (E/W)
R5 #6 Black Caviar (bet anything better than $1.50, bigger certainty than So You Think)
R6 #4 Smokin’ Joey (best bet)
R7 #2 Precedence (win)
R9 #4 Ghostmilk (E/W)
R6 #2 Rothesay (win)
R8 #10 Glintz (E/W)

American Football: Sunday

In the spirit of the spring carnival we decided to make our main American Football pick from the home of America’s biggest horse race. The Louisville Cardinals, who play right next to where the Kentucky Derby is held each year, will host the Huskies from Connecticut. This one has seen a stream of money come from the opener of Louisville+1 into favouritism of -2.5. That number is about to tick over onto the key -3, we still see value in the number at -2.5, but you would want to hurry up and get over to Party Bets or 888Sport and buy some Louisville Carinals-2.5 action before it’s too late!

We don’t always fade the snow-dogs though, so if you’re looking for something to do on Sunday afternoon, why not bet the Washington Huskies straight out to march into Arizona and takedown the Wildcats. We love the underdog Washington Huskies for the win here. Bet365 will give you $3.15 but if you shop around you may be able to find a little bit better.


There is plenty of other action to be had this weekend including A-League, European Soccer, NBL, UFC, Baseball Playoffs and even the NBA Preseason (though they do reserve a special place in purgatory for those that bet the preseason). But if you can’t find something you like from that extensive list, why not bet on the name of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s baby? Our inside tip is Lay-Z for a boy or Destiny for a girl, just don't ask us where we get our information from.
