NSW are $3.75 favourites to win the Twenty20 Champions League but it is Victoria who are popular with Sportingbet Australia punters.Sportingbet boss Michael Sullivan said the Bushrangers would press for favouritism if they were successful overnight.”The Vics are outsiders against Bangalore but there’s no doubt they’ll press NSW for the favourite tag if they can win,” said Sullivan.”They’ve already been backed in from $9 to $4.50 and are easily the best-backed side in the competition but with the likes of [David] Warner, [Phillip] Hughes, [Simon] Katich and [Moises] Henriques in their ranks, we’re still keen on the Blues.” WOZ HE ON? A TAB Sportsbet punter plunged a mammoth $189,545 on Caroline Wozniacki at $1.05 to win her second-round match at the WTA tournament in Osaka against Katie O’Brien, which was to be played overnight.TAB Sportsbet’s Glenn Munsie said the bet stood to earn the punter a paltry $9477.25.Meanwhile, Munsie said NFL betting was getting more popular every week at TAB Sportsbet, with punters setting their sights on five games in week six.Baltimore are popular as $2.45 outsiders against Minnesota, while New Orleans have been backed at $1.65 to beat the New York Jets.One punter has invested $23,000 on San Diego to beat Denver at $1.60 while another had $20,000 on Chicago (+4.5) at $1.90 against Atlanta.Arizona have been backed at $2.40 to win against Seattle and also with 3.5 points start. OUTSIDE CHANCE Casey Stoner shapes as Australia’s best prospect to win Sunday’s MotoGP at Phillip Island but Sportingbet punters have been keen to have a nibble at fellow Australian Chris Vermeulen at big odds.Sullivan said Vermeulen was easily the bookies’ worst result at this stage, with punters backing him from $101 to $67.”While Stoner will be stripping fitter here it’s Vermeulen that’s taken the punters’ fancy with the prospect of a wet track,” said Sullivan.”They were keen to snap up the $101 odds for a MotoGP win and just as keen to take the $21 about him snaring a podium finish.” GOT THE BLUES On the back of an upset win over Melbourne Victory last weekend, Sydney FC are now the best-backed team to win the A-League title, and, having opened at $8 with Centrebet, they have firmed into $4 favourites, with one punter putting $1500 on at $7.”All of a sudden it’s become a three-team war at the top of betting, with Melbourne, despite their up-and-down form, still well backed at the opening price of $4, and Gold Coast United, who were fancied early and have shortened from an opening $9 into $4.35,” said Centrebet’s Neil Evans.Evans said Robbie Fowler’s North Queensland Fury were still the best-backed team to land the wooden spoon and were at $2.25. TIGERS MOVE UP NRL grand final rivals Parramatta ($5) and Melbourne ($5.50) dominate early betting on Centrebet for the 2010 premiership, but Wests Tigers are attracting support.”The Tigers have been a significant off-season mover, firming from $26 into $17 to repeat their heroics of 2005,” Evans said.
