The Australian Gambling staff had a great week on the punt, backing 10 winners from 24 suggested bets, and more importantly, turned in a profit of $158.40.
Our best result came at the track on Saturday, when our racing expert Bren O’Brien’s best bet – Pacodali – saluted in the 7th race at Flemington, for a win of $5.50 and $1.60 for the place. Mr O’Brien wasn’t done there either, with I’m Telling Ya running third in the last race for a more than handy collect of $5.
Our NRL expert Chris Duffy bounced back to form, by backing three winners from his five best bets, at good enough odds to make a profit of $37.50. He had the Panthers, Storm, and Eels to all win by 1-12 points, which they did, and it could have been enough better, with the Broncos winning by more than the 1-12 margin he had selected back on Thursday night.
In Rugby Union, we landed one of our three best bets, with the Lions saluting by over 1-12 points against the Sharks. This earned us $3.
Our AFL form was not as good, where we managed just one win from five best bets. Had Jack Riewoldt kicked straight for Richmond on Sunday then we would have collected there, and we missed out by margin only in the Adelaide-Geelong game, and the Hawthorn-Fremantle clash, so we were a little unlucky.
England won the Women’s Cricket World Cup, but we were on India in the final, and while we also incorrectly selected John Rahm to finish in the top 10 of the British Open, we bounced back with our next two best bets at the world’s oldest golf tournament.
Marc Leishman shot a brilliant 65 in the final round, to ensure he was the best placed Aussie at $4.33, while last year’s winner Henrik Stenson finished 11th, which was good enough to win group C which featured Adam Scott, Jason Day, and local hope Tommy Fleetwood, which gave us a more than handy return of $3.50.
The main event of the UFC event in Long Island on Sunday (AEST) saw native Chris Weidman defeat Californian Kelvin Gastelum in the middleweight division, which we correctly picked, for a return of $2.53.
Our overall result for the weekend was a return of $398.40 if you bet $10 per selection and a profit of $158.40. A good weekend on the punt but we’ll aim to do even better for you next week.
