We’ve been waiting all year and finally, the PBR returns to Australia this weekend!
The PBR Caboolture Invitational will see the best cowboys and bulls that Australia has to offer go head-to-head in some exhilarating, adrenaline-packed contests.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to look into the form or familiarise yourself with the sport, don’t worry! We’ve done all the heavy lifting for you in the preview and tips below.
Don’t forget, you can stream all of the Australian and US PBR action live and free on the Neds App!
Lachlan Richardson will take winning form into the Caboolture Invitational, and I am banking on him picking up where he left off.
The New South Welshman was a strong and consistent performer at the PBR prior to the COVID break, culminating in an impressive performance and win at the Ballarat Stampede.
I concede that it has been a long time since any competition, but Richardson appears to stand the a decent chance of winning at Caboolture.
Aaron Kleier returns from a stint in the USA at the PBR Caboolture Invitational, and I am also happy to roll the dice on him winning his match with Whiskey Shot.
Kleier returned several impressive performances on what is arguably a tougher stage, including an impressive second placing at the Caterpillar Classic Bucking Battle in Kansas.
His form in Australia throughout 2019 was also outstanding and included several event wins, including both Adelaide and Queanbeyan.
Lane Mellers faces a tough task in his first up contest with A Force at the PBR Caboolture Invitational.
Mellers is another cowboy who returned some credible performances in the United States earlier this year, but he returned to Australia for both the Marrabel and Ballarat events earlier this year and failed to place at either.
Given that he is now on a 5-ride losing streak, I’m happy to back A Force in this contest and under the 3.5-second line.
As we have been doing all season for the US PBR events, I’m going to have a crack at a four-leg multi in Event 1 at the PBR Caboolture Invitational.
All four of these bulls are clear favourites ahead of their respective matches, with Simba injected the most value ($1.60) when he faces Troy Wilkinson.
The $2.75 that we can get for this multi at publish looks a lovely price.
Rockin On is a clear and justifiable favourite defeat Sonny Schafferius in the second event at the PBR Caboolture Invitational on Saturday night.
Schafferius missed the entire 2019 PBR season, and failed to make anything of an impressive at his first two events this season.
He’ll likely need this event and perhaps a couple more to find his best form, and I can’t imagine this match will last very long at all.
I’m going to have another look at Lane Mellers in the second event the PBR Caboolture Invitational, and while I do think that he’ll find it difficult to win again, I’m expecting a better second-up performance against Gangland.
You can take advantage of bands betting for the PBR here at Neds, and I’m going to toll the dice on Gangland winning this match somewhere between 5 seconds and 5.99 seconds.
These markets are easily the most potentially lucrative available for PBR events.
Event 2 also represents a good opportunity to group up a few bulls for a better price.
This time, I’m including Tropical Rush, Rip Tide, Moves Like Jagger and Guilty Pleasure, all clear favourites in their respective matches, and we’re getting a cool $2.67 at publish.
