Need to know the best bet for gold and glory in the Emirates Melbourne Cup? We’ve got a tip or five for you. Thankfully not directly from us.

Everyone stops to watch the Emirates Melbourne Cup, or so we are led to believe. But the vast majority of people wouldn’t know too much about putting on a punt or picking the right horse. That’s fair enough being that a lot of bets people make are through office sweeps or other simple ideas like that. With this internet thing taking off, it’s now easier than ever to make a bet on the Cup. There are a stack of Australian online agencies that have up-to-the minute odds. So if you’re looking to put down a quick dollar or two on Dunedan or Jukebox Jury, try the following.

Remember though, to bet with your head, not over it. And while we’re at it, don’t drink and drive as well.
