Results from last week:
Yet another disastrous weekend for us, and I am seriously considering retirement at the ripe old age of 25.
As everybody knows, the Cheetahs threw away the game (or should I say the Lions just took it), and there went my Bet the Farm. Not to be outdone, the Griquas showed their semi final hopes by coming back against the Pumas and beating them by more than the 11 point handicap I punted. 0 from 2.
HH’s Saturday Treble nearly came through for us, but alas, his Otago side let him down in the last leg of the bet. 0 from 3, this is getting kind of embarrassing now. The soccer bet also let us down, with the opening fixture of the Premiership ending in a dull draw. 0 from 4.
With all the results above going down the tubes, the Hail Mary was never ever ever EVER even looking close like a winner. So let’s recap, 0 from 5.
Moving on, let’s have a look at what’s install this weekend. If you want to win money, take my opinions, and do exactly the opposite!!
Bet the farm:
There has been a lot of talk about this game, and I think there can be only one result. Back the Sharks to beat WP – 1/1
Take a chance:
I reckon the Leopards might just not take a walloping against the Cheetahs tonight, so I would punt the Leopards to lose by less than 31 points – 6/10
Tri-Nation bet of the weekend:
This is a really tough game to call, and I really do not want to put my head on the block here, but after some input from my punting mate we decided to punt that NZ will be half time leaders in this game – 15/20
ITM bet of the weekend:
HH’s bet of the weekend in the ITM Cup this weekend is in the Wellington vs Waikato game. Wellington will be favourite’s, but our man from the long silver cloud reckons it will be a close game, and backs Waikato to lose by less than the handicap.
Soccer bet of the Weekend:
Arsenal play Blackpool on Saturday and the new kids on the block might just pull of an amazing point here. Punt the draw – 3/1
Hail Mary’s are not for the faint hearted, and these generally only come through once in a while. Here we go:
Lions to beat the Pumas by more than 12 points – 6/10
Sharks to beat WP – 1/1
Bulls to beat Griquas by more than 12 points – 6/10
Grand total – 5/1
