The Punt #51

No winners last week, but there are sold bold wagers this week, with some big money possibly on the way for our experts. Who are they backing?


(Total)(Change from last week)

1. James ($312) (-$10)

2. Tomo ($272.10) (-$10)

3. David ($102.70) (-$10)

4. Adrian ($68.40) (-$10)

5. Matt ($27.40) (- $10)



NRL – Friday Margin Double – Cowboys 1-12/Bulldogs 1-12 @ $8.12 – No Parker, Hodges, Civoniceva for the Broncos, and their opposition will be much better than the Roosters were last week. The Bulldogs are playing very well also, and should prove too good in Woolongong.


NYC – Tigers def Roosters @ $1.55 – The Tigers are coming off another disappointing loss, but coach Todd Payten won’t let them lose at Leichhardt, and with legend Ellery Hanley in the stands they will fire up.

= $12.58



NRL – Wests Tigers v Roosters – Tigers 13+ @ $2.30 – After seeing the Roosters fall to a largely inexperienced Broncos side last weekend 40-22, I think the Tigers at Leichhardt should send them packing. Big time.


NRL – Family Tries – Morris Bros over 1.5 tries – @ $3.25 – I’m not too confident with this one, but it’s not too out of the question that both Morris brothers can get two tries between them.

= $7.48



Euro 2012- Spain, Germany & Russia to win next games @ $5.45- After blowing out the cobwebs, the big guns will be looking to flex their muscle


Rugby Union- Scotland, France, Italy, South Africa to win @ $3.05 – A series of safe bets who should all get the job done comfortably this weekend.

= $16.62


INT N Zealand-Ireland 16/06 – Winning Margin Spread – New Zealand 22-28 @ $4.00 – The All Blacks got off to a fantastic start in the Steve Hansen era. Surprising how good they were actually with a good micture of old and new talent. I don’t think the Irish will lie down after last weeks hammering but I still feel the All Blacks will put them to the sword again. Plus test rugby returns to Christchurch and with a rugby-mad city like Christchurch, you can bet that crowd will be bringing it!


INT Australia-Wales 16/06 – Winning Margin Spread – Australia 8-14 @ $4.60 – So Australia got off to a fantatic win in the rematch of the 3rd and 4th playoff from last year’s Rugby World Cup. Robbie Dean’s job looks safe for at least another week and I expect the Wallabies to have another solid win.

= $18.40



INT Sth Africa-England 17/06 – South Africa @ $1.20 – On South Africa’s side they would hope for Francois Hougaard and Frans Steyn to pick up their game for this weekend after having quite a quiet game last weekend. On England side they will be looking at Toby Flood and Manusamoa Tuilagi to get things going for them. South Africa should have enough firepower to edge the English but should aim to replicate their effort in the second half to do so.


INT N Zealand-Ireland NT 16/06 – New Zealand 13+ @ $1.20 – Personally I think Ireland will be competitive for the larger part of the first half but with the All Blacks scavengers (McCaw and Thompson) on the loose and Dan Carter in outstanding form I’m afraid this one is going to end the same way as last weekend. All Blacks to win this one for me by heaps.

= $1.44
