First up, lets look at last weekend results first:
Last week’s results were quite shocking if anybody was following our tips. The handicap on our Bet the Farm fell short as the NZ’ers hit reverse in the second half against the Australians, beating them by 10 and not the required 12 points.
The Take a Chance bet really was an outside bet and with the game fizzling out in the second, there was no real chance for the ref to give either a NZ’er or an Aussie a yellow card.
The Tri-Nations bet was also a flop as rain and a really bad second half could not produce a good scoring half and we were really disappointed with this game as a whole.
HH’s ITM bets of the weekend produced our first positive result with Southland beating Otago. Keeping it posive HH, thank you!
The Currie Cup bet was a walk in the park as WP had to beat Griquas by 5 points, which they duly did. Seems that once HH gets his bet in, the rest of the weekend came through for us.
To quote one of our bloggers on the site, the Hail Mary really was a Huil Mary as we were out of the bet as soon as the Bulls only beat the Leopards by 5 points and not close to required 30 points. From there it went downhill, and we can only lift ourselves up and try again this weekend.
In summary, if you bet R100 on each of our bets, you would have spent R800 and collected a mere R270 on Monday morning. A disastrous weekend to say the least.
After 2 weeks of punting, we are R320 down cumulatively. Lets win it all back this weekend.
On to this weekend:
Bet the farm:
My bet the farm this weekend comes in the Lions vs Cheetahs game, where I reckon the Cheetahs are a great bet and should be able to beat the hapless Lions by the 9 point handicap – 1/1
Take a chance:
After quite a walloping last weekend, Griquas will be licking their wounds against the Pumas, and this game will be close. So take a chance and back the Pumas to lose by less than 11 points – 13/10
ITM bet of the weekend:
Bay of Plenty v Auckland
Southland v Counties-Manukau
Otago v Wellington
For those of you who have been watching the results from the ITM Cup, you will realise it has been hard enough to pick one result, let alone three in one day.
However keep the faith folks returns are just around the corner.
As Punter would say, ‘Bet the Farm’ on Auckland walking away with the points at Mt. Maunganui.
Southland will defend the Shield against Tana Umaga’s Counties Manukau with ease.
The upset of the round is the improving Otago toppling the more fancied boys from the Capital – Wellington.
Soccer bet of the Weekend:
Man City are playing Tottenham Hotspurs in the first game of the English Premiership on Saturday, and Man City are touted to be in the running for a top three finish. Man City to win – 18/10
It’s an all Currie Cup Hail Mary this weekend:
Pumas to lose by less than 11 points – 13/10
Cheetahs to beat the Lions by more than 8 points – 1/1
WP to beat the Bulls by 11 or more points – 13/10
Sharks to beat the Leopards by 22 points or more – 1/1
Grand total – 20/1
