Weekend punting failures

I hate to say this, but it was another poor weekend sporting wise for my punts. Some punts were spot on, but we just could not pull off anything noteworthy, except winning ourselves another farm. Maybe I should stick to farming?!

Bet the Farm:

The Cheetahs came through nicely for me after I put my co… um head on a block here. That was the only winning ticket for the weekend.

Take a Chance:

The take a chance double was oh so close, with the first leg of the Sharks winning by less than 20 points coming through nicely, and then the second leg was off by a mere 2 points. We required the WP to win by 40 points or less, and they did by 42 points just to give us all the proverbial finger!

Tri Nations:

NZ came from behind in a fantastic match of rugby, but it was never going to be by the required 8 points.

ITM Cup:

HH’s single bet ended in a draw, which one doesn’t see too often, and if we bet the draw, would have made a nice little profit, but it was not to be.

Soccer bet:

Newcastle somehow lost to newly promoted Blackpool by 2 goals to nil. What can I say?

Currie Cup:

The Lions dominated Griquas well, but just did not have it in them to beat them by 18 points or more, and therefore we binned another ticket.

Hail Mary:

I think we covered this… FAIL!!

Overall we got one out of seven, and if you bet R100 on each of the above bets, you would have spent R700 and collected R240. Fantastic return if you ask me….

  • Can’t see why a disclaimer would be necesary imo. But i do understand where the fear come from Rob. I mean, the punting tips are just that…..TIPS. Its obvious that you cant rely on it to guarentee profit. But, hey as i said, other peeps will try to get their money from Rob, just because….

  • You guys made the article to long.

    With that heading the body of the article should have been one word and one word only.

    They are definitely going to be physically formidable !

    SBW will make waves ….he just needs a little time !

    Will be interesting to see if they think he has done enough to make the EOYT when it is announced, i’m a big fan so i’m trying not to say too much ?

  • I’m having a terrible time in the Fantasy League.. I don’t think my original player base was quite up to standard, and the 10 subs aren’t enough to save me..

    I’m mucking about in 50th spot..
