The Punt #48

Only David paid out last week, although there are still disputes over Matt’s margin bet from SOO Game 1. Alas, his money, like every other punter, is lost. This week there are some long-winded legs, which will make things very interesting. So who are our expert punters on this week?


(Total)(Change from last week)

1. James ($342) (-$10)

2. Tomo ($264) (-$10)

3. David ($93.80) (+$20.30)

4. Matt ($25.60) (-$10)

5. Adrian (-$96.30) (-$10)



MLB Dodgers def Astros @ $1.40 – The Dodgers have shown some great early season form, including a victory over the mighty Cards, so I can’t see the Astros being any match for them.


NRL Tigers v Cowboys – Tigers 1st Tryscorer Beau Ryan @ $9.00 – Beau has been in great try-scoring form for the Tiges this year, and grabbed the first one last week. In the centres this week, I think he’ll be working well of Benji Marshall.

= $12.60



NRL – Rabbitohs v Raiders – Souths @ $1.18 – Geez that’s short, but deservedly so.


Spanish Cup – Athletic Bilbao v Barcelona – Barca @ $1.22 – I know they’re going through a transition phase, but they should still be too strong.


AFL – GWS v Essendon – GWS + 70.5 @ $1.80 – I can’t see GWS winning their first match at Skoda Stadium, but I can see them getting within 70pts. 

= $2.59



Super 15- Western Force def Lions @ $1.40- The Force have been playing well with little reward, and a home game against the Lions is the perfect was to get a much needed win on the board


NRL- Wests Tigers def Nth Qld Cowboys @ $1.60- I’m still on the Tigers’ bandwagon, after a slow start they’re charging up the ladder.


IPL- Dehli Daredevils def Chennai Super Kings @ $2.00- They are the underdogs, but the Daredevils did finish top of the table for a reason, and I expect them to book their spot in the final against Kolkata.


Cricket- England def West Indies @ $1.30- A pretty safe bet, but it boosts my odds just a touch.




G1 NBA San Antnio-OklahomaCity IncOT – Line – Spurs at -5.5 @$1.87 – The Spurs are just flat out dominant at the moment. Expect that to continue at home in Game 1.


SRg R14 – Blues v Highlanders – Highlanders @1.50 – Blues are a lost cause. Expect the Highlanders to pounce.

= $2.81



SRg R14 Cheetahs-Waratahs 27/05 – Cheetahs @ $1.65 – The Cheetahs and the Waratahs might both feel they are due for a win after coming close in a few games recently but just falling short. If the Cheetahs mix up their game a bit better than they have been, they should edge it.


SRg R14 Sharks-Stormers 27/05 – Sharks @ $1.75 A massive game. The Sharks have shown some really good form over the past few weeks as they have had their best team out on the park, whilst the Stormers have been winning games all season. You bet against the Stormers at your peril, and there is part of me that can foresee one of those awful games where the team playing no rugby (Stormers) beats the team playing all the rugby (Sharks) something like 9-8. But in a reversal of the first round, it is the Sharks who start favourites this time, and for good reason. 

= $2.89
