PBR Bundaberg Invitational Tips & Preview

For the second time in as many weeks, we’ll be treated to an exciting PBR Australia event on Saturday, the Bundaberg Invitational!

There was a lot to like about last weekend’s Caboolture Invitational, but there is no doubt that the cowboys and bulls will all improve for that hit-out, and the action will hit fever pitch in Bundaberg.

If you’re yet to have a look at the form, don’t worry! We’ve taken all of the hard work out of it for you with you PBR Bundaberg Invitational tips below.

Event 1
Bailey Woodard vs Firecracker
Ride Duration Under 3.5 Seconds ($1.92)

Bailey Woodard will make his first appearance at the PBR since March in Bundaberg, and I am happy to take him on in his first ride on Firecracker.

Woodard found good form leading into the COVID break, but did fail to score at his last two events and is on a five-ride losing streak.

Firecracker meanwhile looked good at Caboolture, and he is a justifiable odds-on favourite in this contest.

Lane Mellers vs Chain Smoker
Mellers to Win ($2.30)

Lane Mellers rode in both events at last weekend’s PBR Caboolture Invitational and I’m confident that this match with Chain Smoker is a very winnable one for him.

Mellers’ form in the United States prior to the COVID break heralded several excellent results, while he was also one of the most consistent riders on last year’s PBR Australia tour.

He didn’t score at Caboolture, but there is no doubt that he’ll improve for the hit-out and the $2.30 we’re getting for him at publish looks a lovely price.

Jay Borghero vs Ranga
Bull 3-3.99 Seconds & Bull 4-4.99 Seconds

Betting suggests that this match between Jay Borghero and Ranga will be the most one-sided contest in Event 1 at the Bundaberg Invitational, and it looks a good opportunity to get involved in bands betting.

Borghero is currently on a nine-match losing streak, and while most riders clearly needed the event at Caboolture to tune up, the twenty-five-year-old has unfortunately drawn a particularly good opponent for his first ride in Bundaberg as well.

I can’t image that this ride will last particularly long, so I’m going to roll the dice on value with two bets – Bull in 3-3.99 seconds ($4) and Bull in 4-4.99 seconds ($6).

Event 1 Multi: Bucksnort, Razor Sharp, Get A Haircut, Scene Of The Crash All to Win
$2.91

I absolutely love placing a PBR multi – Bull riding is the perfect sport for banding together firm favourites, and we’re getting a great price for these four bulls to win in Event 1 at Bundaberg.

All four bulls range in price between $1.20 and $1.36, and I’m confident that we are onto a winning combination.

Event 2
Brumby Brandenburg vs Specsaver
Ride Duration Under 2.25 Seconds ($3.90)

Event 2 gets underway with a particularly tough match for Brumby Brandenburg, and his opponent Specsaver has opened as an unbackable $1.01 favourite.

There clearly is no value left at that price, but plenty to be found the further we dig.

Brandenburg is amidst a 10-game losing streak, and he was unseated by Mixed Culture just two seconds into their match in Event 2 at the Caboolture Invitational.

He squares off with a better bull here and for that reason, I’m backing a similar result.

Matt Hollis vs Off The Planet
Ride Duration Under 3.5 Seconds ($2.05)

Off The Planet will start this match with Matt Hollis a clear favourite in the market, and I think that it represents another good opportunity to get involved with Ride Duration betting.

Hollis finished second in Event 2 at Caboolture last week with a lovely ride, but he is yet another cowboy that faces a step up in class this week, in the form of Off The Planet.

He does stand some chance of winning, but I’m backing the bull to put on a clinic.

Kelsey Pavlou vs Take 5
Pavlou to Win ($3.10)

Kelsey Pavlou will take winning form into the PBR Bundaberg Invitational, and I think he can win again in Event 2 when he climbs aboard Take 5.

Like most cowboys, Pavlou needed his first ride at Caboolture to find his feet, but well and truly took benefit into his second appearance and win in Event 2, scoring 15 points and taking the winner’s check.

The $3.10 on offer for Pavlou looks a terrific bet, in my opinion.

Event 2 Multi – Iron Jacket, Hilltop Hood, Cambells Fully Loaded, Seek And Destroy All to Win
$3.18

Another event, another four-leg multi stacked with bulls.

Iron Jacket, Cambells Fully Loaded and Seek And Destroy are all firm favourites to win their respective matches, while I also think that Hilltop Hood will prove too good for Braydon Wellby, and he add really nice value to the bet at $1.60.
