Commonwealth Games – Who will top the medal tally?

Commonwealth Games

Beginning this week on Queensland’s beautiful Gold Coast, Australia host their 5th Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, following Sydney (1938), Perth (1962), Brisbane (1982) and Melbourne (2006). 

The banged-up Australians are on the lookout for redemption at home after a blemish on their almost impeccable Commonwealth Games record, being beaten in the medal tally for the first time in nearly three decades, at the Glasgow Games in 2014.

An intense Ashes-style duel between England and Australia is expected to unfold at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, with Canada, South Africa and India anticipated to also finish high on the medal tally.

We suggest you show your support for the green-and-gold and tip a few dollars on the Aussies to top the gold medal count with Bookmaker.com.au or even have a bet on a roughie like South Africa or even Canada.

Aussies tipped to Dominate Swimming, England should win Athletics

Just as much as Australia are expected dominate the swimming medal count at Southport’s Aquatic Centre, England is expected to hold the whip-hand with their traditionally strong Athletics squad. 

It is the team sports of Basketball, Netball, and Men and Women’s Rugby 7’s and Hockey where the furnace of an Ashes-type battle is most keenly anticipated.
