Holden drivers Jamie AGEN138 and Craig Lowndes will be fighting out their own separate championship battle during the 2022 V8 Supercar season so dominant they will be says online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.

Defending champion Whincup and runner-up Lowndes have been installed as $2.85 and $3.25 chances respectively to take out this year’s title with their nearest rival being Ford’s Shane Van Gisbergen who is at $11. Mark Winterbottom and Garth Tander (both $12), Will Davison ($13), James Courtney ($15), Lee Holdsworth, Rick Kelly (both $12) and Tim Slade ($26) round out the top ten.

“The market suggests it’s going to be another year of chasing Team Vodafone,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said. ““We just can’t see how anyone will be able to consistently match it with them.” “Lowndes almost held on to beat Whincup last season so it will be a ding-dong battle between them again. The huge question is whether anyone can spoil their party? We don’t think so.” Market courtesy of sportsbet.com.au

PUNTERS BACK ARNIE FOR SYDNEY FC

Punters with leading online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au have backed  from a distant $13 shot into clear favourite at $2.75 to take the reins of Sydney FC in the A-League next season.

85% of bets placed on the market have been for Arnold to move to the Sky Blues while every other contender originally priced have either drifted in betting or remained the same. Early favourite Gianfranco Zola has drifted from $5.00 out to $5.50 as has Branko Culina ($8.00 out to $13), Steve Corica ($9.00 out to $13), Ian Crook ($11 out to $15) and Tony Popovic ($15 out to $19). “In the punters eyes Graham Arnold will be at Sydney FC next season,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said. “There’s been little to no interest in anyone else.”

English singer Adele is set to scoop the pool at the 54th Grammy Awards on Monday with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au installing her as the overwhelming favourite in the Record, Album and Song of the Year categories. Adele’s Rolling In The Deep is the $1.20 favourite to take out the Record of the Year category ahead of The Cave by Mumford & Sons ($5.00), Holocene by Bon Iver ($8.00), Grenade by Bruno Mars ($8.00) and Katy Perry’s Firework ($15).

In Album of the Year category, Adele’s 21 is at $1.10 with her closest competition coming from Bruno Mars with Doo-Woops & Hooligans ($7.50) and the Foo Fighter’s Wasting Light ($9.00). Born This Way by Lady Gaga ($11) and Rihanna’s Loud ($23) are the outsiders in that market. Adele’s Rolling In The Deep is the $1.25 favourite for the Song of the Year with All Of The Lights by Kanye West next in the market at $4.50 followed by The Cave from the Mumford & Sons ($7.50), Holocene by Bon Iver ($17) and Grenade by Bruno Mars ($19).

“The markets clearly reflect Adele’s popularity and the punters are definitely keen on her to take out all three categories,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said. In the Best New Artist category, Nicki Minaj is the $2.00 favourite with Bon Iver ($3.25), The Band Perry ($4.00), J. Cole ($7.00) and Skrillex ($13) also in the mix.
