We’ve seen some brilliant individual performances from Australian athletes at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games but it’s the team sports – Hockey and Netball which look like delivering us more success in the final days of the Games.

As far as hockey is concerned, online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au expects both our men ($1.25) and women ($1.33) to leave Glasgow with gold around their necks.
The Aussie netballers are also short at $1.25, although they do have to contend with the dangerous New Zealand who are priced at $4.00.
Sally Pearson looks like another good thing – $1.36 in tomorrow morning’s 100m hurdles.
Perhaps there could be some value in the diving. Fresh from his silver medal in the 1m springboard, Matthew Mitcham is third favourite at $4.00 for the 10m platform behind $1.76 chance Tom Daley of England.
“It looks like we won’t catch England but there’s still plenty of gold to be won by our athletes. A multi on our men’s and women’s hockey teams is paying $1.77 which suggests we can almost bank on two golds there,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
