The Punt #8

Not just one, but two winners last week! Adrian has taken a commanding lead in the competition, roughly $90 in front of The Phantom. Tomo also got a win, clearing all by $1 of his debt. He’ll be looking to launch himself into positive territory this week, while Matt and David need to start accumulating some cash to get themselves back in the game.


(Total)(Change from last week)

1. Adrian ($107.10) (+$59.10)

2. The Phantom ($17.80) (-$10)

3. Tomo (-$1) (+$59)

4. David (-$70) (-$10)

4. Matt (-$70) (-$10)




NRL R21 Lowest Scoring Team – Gold Coast @ $7 – The Knights kept the Sharks to nil last week away, and return home on the back of this to wooden spoon favourites in the Titans. They’ll do it again I believe.


MLB St Louis v Houston – St Louis at the line (-1.5) @2.15 – I’m a Cards fan myself, and I reckon they’ll give it to the Astros!





NRL- R21 Friday Total Score Ov/Un- Over 77.5pts @ $1.87- Between the two Friday night games, there are going to be plenty of points scored, so I think I’m safe with this option.


AFL- Leading Goalkicker- Lance Franklin @ $6.50- Not so sure who’s going to be marking Buddy, but Luke McPharlin isn’t playing, so he might just get a few.

= $12.16



The Phantom

Cricket- India 1st Innings Opening Partnership to be more than 30.5 runs @ $1.90- Alright, they had a shocker at Lords, but the world’s number 1 ranked test side will bounce back and get off to a good start in their first innings.


Soccer- Manchester City to beat League of Ireland XI by more than 2 goals @ $3- After Mario Balloteli’s embarrassing blunder last week, the Sky Blues will be switched on this week and are set to put the Irish All Stars to the sword.


Rugby League- Manly def Wests Tigers by 1-12pts @ $3.05- The high flying Sea Eagles should get the job done, but its unlikely they will blow the Tigers, who are starting to get key players back on the paddock at the right time of the season, out of the water.

= $9.73



Investec Tri Nations – New Zealand v South Africa- 1st Try Scorer – M Nonu @ $10 – I see the All Black backline run amok against the Boks. I also see Nonu running over someone for the first try after a perfectly executed backline move.


ITM Cup – Half Time Margin – Canterbury v Manawatu – Canterbury by 6 & under – @ $3.20 –  Canturbury hasn’t been playing the greatest. They’ll still win though. Here’s hoping Manawatu can at least keep it close in the first half.

= $32




NRL R21 – Warriors-Canberra IncExT – Head to Head – Warriors Victory @ $1.43 – Going relatively conservative this week, but the Warriors are on a role and will take this one out easy.


TRI N Zealand-Sth Africa 80min – Margin – New Zealand 13+ @ $1.40 –  to continue the conservative streak I will go for the All Blacks to give the “injury depleted” Boks by 13 plus. They have the side to do it, it will be close for a while before they come right

= $2.002 (OK, so I may be taking a conservative multi-bet, but at least it’s something.)
