Australian sports fans are gearing up for another thrilling season of sports action in 2024, and what better way to amplify the excitement than with some expertly crafted multi-bet tips?
Whether you’re a seasoned punter or just getting into the thrilling world of sports betting, next year promises an array of opportunities to enhance your wagering experience.
With that in mind we’ve curated some multi-bet tips to help you navigate the twists and turns of the betting landscape, starting with a standout wager in the first tennis Grand Slam of the year.
The Australian Open
Anticipation for the Australian Open is building as Melbourne prepares to welcome the elite of the tennis world for the first Grand Slam of 2024.
Reigning men’s champion Novak Djokovic will seek to add another chapter to his storied career by securing an unprecedented 11th title.
Hotly tipped at 2.10 odds to successfully defend his title, the 24-time Grand Slam winner will be gunning for another triumph but faces competition from some big names, notably Rafael Nadal.
While Nadal will back himself to reclaim his Aussie Open crown, his 15.00 odds of success suggest the bookmakers do not share his optimism.
World number two Carlos Alcaraz, tipped at 3.40 odds to win the title, will also fancy his chances after securing a famous victory over Djokovic in the Wimbledon final in July.
A-League Grand Final
Central Coast Mariners have endured a horrific start to their A-League title defence, reflected in the bookmakers’ assessment as they are handed odds of 17.00 to retain their crown in 2024.
Despite their spectacular 6-1 triumph over Melbourne City in last season’s final, the Mariners kicked off the current campaign with just one win in their opening five matches.
Meanwhile, despite their crushing defeat in the final and their uninspiring start to the season, Melbourne City remain the favourites to elope with the coveted trophy with odds of 4.50.
Cross-city rivals and A-League table-toppers Melbourne Victory are hot on their heels with odds of 5.50, making them compelling candidates for the title.
However, for punters seeking a potential low-risk high-return gamble, Macarthur’s 15.00 odds represent a tantalising option, especially after their promising start to the season.
National Basketball League (NBL)
Sydney Kings are aiming to complete a three-peat of NBL championships for the second time in their history and the competition’s first hat-trick since the New Zealand Beakers accomplished the feat from 2011 to 2013.
Sydney have started the campaign in fine form, sitting second in the regular season campaign and have been tipped at 4.00 odds to successfully defend their title.
Despite Sydney’s back-to-back success in the tournament, Melbourne United have emerged as the front-runners for the NBL championship this season, boasting odds of 2.40 to claim their first title since 2021.
While they currently lead the NBL regular season standings, record champions Perth Wildcats have been rated at 6.50 odds to claim an 11th championship.
After overcoming a turbulent start to the season, the Wildcats are focused on play-off contention as they bid to add yet another title to their storied history.
Big Bash League
Perth Scorchers will be eager to consolidate their position at the pinnacle of the Big Bash League (BBL) by adding yet another T20 title to their trophy-laden cabinet.
The Scorchers are the most successful BBL team ever, winning a record five championships and being runners-up on three occasions.
They defeated Brisbane Heat in last year’s final and will fancy their chances of enhancing their excellent record in one of cricket’s most prestigious competitions.
The Scorchers are priced at 3.60 to retain their title, with 2022 runners-up Sidney Sixers hot on their heels with odds of 5.50 to dethrone the record-time champions.
Hobart Hurricanes are also expected to be in the thick of things after being handed odds of 7.50 to mount an unlikely title challenge.
Multi-bet tip: Djokovic (Australian Open), Melbourne Victory (A-League), Sydney Kings (NBL), Perth Scorchers (BBL).
