Round 9: Bets 5, units staked 7, -7 units profit
2019: Bets 75, units staked 86, +14.2 units profit at 16.5% ROI
A total washout last week with all 5 bets going down despite smashing the closing lines. ‘You can’t eat value’ is a saying that is muttered by many a punter when their bet at top odds goes down after firming big time and even though it is true that a $1.05 winner pays more than a 50/1 into 3/1 loser, beating the closing line is something that every punter should strive for.
Bets in three matches for us this week.
First up we have the Suns against the Giants and we make the line 44 points so at +50.5 with TAB we’ll chuck a unit on the line bet and a speculative half a unit at $14 on the Suns to spring a huge surprise with Topbetta or Betfair.
Melbourne play the Crows in Darwin and the Crows may struggle to lift after a disappointing performance last week in defeat to the Eagles. One unit Melbourne +9.5 with Sportsbet.
Our last bets are on Essendon to give Carlton a bit of a hiding. We make the Bombers 24 point favourites to beat the Blues and think a blow out could be on the cards.
1 unit Essendon 40+ at $4.1 with unibet
0.5 units Essendon -59.5 at $8 with Sportsbet
