Golf
Beaudesert born golfer Jason Day finished the year as world number one. However, he has to play second fiddle to Jordan Speith in US Masters betting, with Speith a $7.50 favourite, over Day ($9.00). Rory McIlroy is next at $10 and Adam Scott ($17) the next highest placed Aussie. Tiger Woods, on the comeback trail is $26.

Soccer
It is a huge year for the Socceroos. They continue their World Cup qualification process and face a tough battle in the Confederations Cup.
They tackle heavyweights Germany and Chile in the Confederations Cup. The Socceroos are $17 to win the tournament and $9.00 to beat Germany, the $2.50 tournament favourites, in their opener.

Cricket
With home country advantage Australia is $1.80 favourite to win back the Ashes in their five match series against England. The old enemy is $1.90 to retain the Ashes and $2.70 to win the series, a draw is $6.50.

Formula 1
West Australian Daniel Ricciardo is $4.50 to become the third Australian to win a Formula One Drivers’ Championship. The Red Bull driver is on the third line of betting behind Lewis Hamilton ($2.25) and Max Verstappen ($3.75).

Rugby League
Legendary coach Wayne Bennett has worked wonders for the Broncos, but his England side is long odds to lift the Rugby League World Cup in 2017.
The Australian Kangaroos is $1.40 favourite for the tournament ahead of New Zealand ($3.75) with England next at $9.00. Scotland, France, Lebanon and Ireland are the tournament’s $501 outsiders, to win the December 2 final in Brisbane.

Tennis
Will the home crowd get behind tennis bad boy Nick Kyrgios, or give him a serve, when the Australian Open swings into action?
Kyrgios will need all the help he can get. The top ranked Aussie is $34 to win the Open. Novac Djokovic and Andy Murray are equal $2.63 favourites and dominate the market for the Melbourne tournament.
World number one ranked Angelique Kerber is $5.00 to win the women’s tournament. Six-time Australian Open winner Serena Williams is the $3.25 favourite. Aussie Sam Stosur is a rank outsider at $151.

Sailing
No surprise in this year’s Sydney to Hobart yacht race betting. Wild Oats XI is $1.45 favourite to secure line honours for the ninth time. CQS ($4.75), Scallywag ($8.50) and Perpetual Love ($9.50) follow, double figures the rest.

Boxing
Last and possibly least, the over hyped boxing match between Danny Green and Anthony Mundine is scheduled for February. Green is $1.55 favourite and Mundine $2.40.
