The Punt #15

We had no winners last week, with the Wallabies’ unfortunate loss to Ireland at RWC causing a lot of grief. Adrian on the other hand just had a shocker, with all three legs failing to get up. Everyone will be looking for a change in fortune, and there are some interesting selections, so head on in to see where we’re putting our cash!



(Total)(Change from last week)

1. The Phantom ($68.70) (-$10)

2. Adrian ($37.10) (-$10)

3. Tomo (-$1) (-$10)

4. David (-$39.95) (-$10)

5. Matt (-$77.50) (-$10)




EPL Rd6 Man City-Everton Result –  Manchester City @ $1.40 – Sorry to the Phantom, but Man City were on a bit of a roll until they met Fulham last week, and they will be out to avenge that and get back to challenging Man Utd with a win this week.


NYC PF Nth Qld U20-Cronulla U20 Margin – Nth Qld U20 1-12 @ $3.10 – The Cowboys disposed of the dangerous Tigers in the first week and got a week off, but face a Sharks side who have plenty of FG experience. Alas, I still think the Cowboys will get home, but it will be much closer than the other preliminary final.





NRL PF Manly-Brisbane 23/09 – Player Performance – Parker Over 4.5 Pts @ $1.87 – I’m sure he can kick at least three goals in the game, and perhaps score a sneaky try.


NRL PF Manly-Brisbane IncExT 23/09 – Head to Head – Manly @ $1.40 – I have complete confidence they’ll make it through to the grand final. Well… maybe not complete confidence… but they should… hopefully…


Brownlow Most Votes Group C (Franklin, Cox, Cotchin, Black, Swallow, Goddard)  – Group Winner – Cox @ $3.00 – He might not win the Brownlow, but he’ll go close.




The Phantom

AFL-  Collingwood vs Hawthorn- Collingwood first to 15pts @ $1.54- This epic encounter was my pre season tip for the Grand Final, and it has come a week early. The Hawks put the cleaners through a disappointing Swans lineup 7 days ago, but the Pies will be another proposition completely. They will fly out of the blocks and get the Black & White army up & about, making it a very tough night for the Hawks.


EPL- Man City vs Everton Draw @ $4.30- This might seem like a ridiculous waste of money, but hear me out. The Toffees won both clashes with City last year, and took 15/30 points against the top 5 sides. They lift for the big games, and will push City right to the final whistle.


RWC- Australia vs USA- Kurtley Beale to score a double @ $2.30- I got absolutely burnt by the Wallabies last week, but I’m sticking with them to bounce back. In what is likely to be a fairly one sided affair, Kurtley will run riot & cross the stripe more than once.





In my view, this year’s Brownlow Medal is down to a race in 2. Both players would become amongst the most decorated player of all time, adding a record equalling 3rd Brownlow medal to their premiership medallions, All-Australian Awards, Club Best & Fairest Awards and, in the case of one, an Norm Smith Medal.

The two I speak of are of course Adam Goodes & Chris Judd. Between them, they have shared 4 of the past 9 Brownlow Medals, and are sure to poll well again this season. After a blistering start to the season, Judd has for much of the year been the shortest priced Brownlow favourite in living memory, whilst 7 Best on Ground performances in the last 2 months of the season saw Goodes charge in from $34 to $5 to win the AFL’s most prestigious individual award. They will finish 1 & 2, but which of the two triumphs takes out the final prize is anyone’s guess. My best Brownlow bet – Judd/Goodes Quinella @ $4.50



NSW Cup – Auckland v Cronulla – Auckland @ $1.50 – Vulcans!


NRL – Storm v Warriors – Line – Warriors +7.5 @ $1.90 – They might not win, but they’ll go close.


Toyota Cup – Warriors v Bulldogs – Warriors @ $1.12 – The defending premiers will almost certainly be heading into a second straight grand final!






NRL PF Melbourne-Warriors IncExT 24/09 – Head to Head – Warriors @ $3.00 –  Just taking a punt here, but the Warriors have a habit of upsetting the odds against the Storm, and I’m picking them to repeat it.


EPL Rd6 Stoke-Man United 25/09 – Result – Manchester United  @ $1.50 – They are going to continue their fine start to the season with a good win
