Test cricket highlights Aussie betting action

Test cricket, international rugby union and league as well as horse racing and soccer are all in play this weekend in Australia.

The second cricket Test between Australia and South Africa dominates the Australian sporting weekend, with bookmakers tipping that the Hobart weather will see the game end in a draw.

Up to an inch of rain is expected on both of the opening two days, and the draw is the heavy favorite at $1.61 (-164). Australia lost the opening Test of the summer for the first time since 1988 and are surprising favourites at $4.20 (+320) to turn it around in Hobart.

South Africa are at the juicy odds of $4.75 (+375) after their 177-run win in Perth. Both sides will have changes in their lineup from that match with South Africa losing paceman Dale Steyn to injury and Australia losing Shaun Marsh and Peter Siddle. 

Round 6 of the A-League soccer kicked off on Thursday night when Melbourne City won 2-1 over Newcastle. On Friday night, Adelaide United are $2.45 (+145) favourites for their first win of the season when they host Brisbane ($2.75) (+175), who’ve won three games in a row.

The other key matches of the weekend include the top of the table Sydney FC ($1.70/-143), who are aiming for six wins in a row to start the season when they host Perth ($4.75/+375) on Sunday. Melbourne Victory ($2.05/+105) meet the Wanderers ($3.40/+440) on Saturday night, with both sides needing the three points to stay in touch with the top two teams.

The Spring carnival is all but over, but there is racing at Sandown and Rosehill. Sandown’s 10-race card is highlighted by the Zipping Classic where Who Shot Thebarman is currently favourite at $3.20 (+420).

Both Australia's national rugby league (Kangaroos) and rugby union (Wallabies) are in action this weekend in the UK. The Kangaroos are red-hot favourites at $1.20 (-500) when they meet England ($4.60/+360) at London Stadium early on Monday AEDT.

The Wallabies ($1.25/-400) meet Scotland ($4/+300) in Edinburgh at 1:30 a.m. on Sunday morning AEDT and are also short priced favourites after defeating Wales comfortably last weekend by 32-8 in the first of five matches on their tour of Europe
