The final day of the NSW election campaign ended with duelling accusations by both Liberal and Labor leaders that their opponent will water down gun laws if elected.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian and opposition leader Michael Daley also hammered home, once more, their key pledges on infrastructure spending and stadiums.
Labor leader Michael Daley came under fire ahead of Saturday's election for preferencing the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers party in some lower house seats.
Ms Berejiklian faced similar criticism on Friday because her junior coalition partner, the Nationals, are preferencing David Leyonhjelm's Liberal Democrats in the upper house.
Both denied their relationships with the minor parties, which could be crucial in the event of a minority government, will impact gun legislation.
Mr Leyonhjelm earlier this month suggested New Zealand-style gun laws be implemented in Australia.
His comments were made before last week's Christchurch attack that saw 50 people gunned down by a terrorist wielding semi-automatic weapons.
Ms Berejiklian's big sell in the campaign's closing hours, as it was through the whole election, focused on infrastructure.
She contended it was her government's "strong budget position" that was funding massive spends on hospitals, schools, roads and rail.
"That's what good governments do," she told Nine Network on Friday, adding they would lead to a "better quality of life" for future generations.
"We know families always struggle with a work-life balance. That's why we worked hard to give back literally hundreds of millions of dollars to the community."
Mr Daley, speaking on the Ten Network on Friday night, pledged there would be "no deals" or "strings attached" if he was elected and urged voters to focus on the government's attitude over the last eight years.
"People have been let down by a government that behaves like a corporation," he said.
"They waltz into someone's community, they announce what they're going to do, they don't listen."
He pointed to overdevelopment in Sydney's west and, circling back to where his campaign began, the government's controversial $2 billion stadium rebuild plan.
"That stadium issue is emblematic of everything this government has done," Mr Daley said.
"They flip-flopped three or four times on what they said they were doing to do with both stadiums, there's the expense and the spin is just profligate and extravagant."
He pledged to refurbish the stadiums without costing the taxpayers any money.
But Mr Daley conceded it had been a "couple of rough days this week" after a video emerged of him warning supporters Asian migrants were taking jobs in NSW.
He later unreservedly apologised for the comments, noting they were about housing affordability in Sydney.
Meanwhile, the state's bookies say the coalition are "hot favourites" to win after a "remarkable turnaround".
Last week both Labor and the coalition were neck-and-neck but, on the eve of voting, the odds shortened in the government's favour to $1.30, Sportsbet said in a statement.
Labor is now $3.00 to take victory.
The betting agency says the Shooters are favourites to snatch the seat of Barwon from the Nationals, Labor are tipped to take the Upper Hunter from the Nationals and the coalition is expected to take Ballina back from the Greens.
