The Australian Gambling staff had a solid week on the punt, backing 11 winners from 20 suggested bets, and more importantly, turned in a profit of $58.
Our best result came at the US PGA Championship, when we backed Rickie Fowler to finish inside the top five, which he did, for a juicy collect of $4.
We also had Hideki Matsuyama to finish inside the top 10, which he did easily, in fact, he went within three shots of becoming the first Japanese player to win a major.
Our only loss at Quail Hollow came when Marc Leishman failed to finish as the highest placed Aussie. That honour went to Jason Day, who finished in a tie for ninth place.
In the AFL, we missed out on our Friday night bet, which was the Bulldogs to beat the Giants but bounced back with three wins from our last four best bets across the weekend.
Our best result in Australia’s native game came on Sunday, when Melbourne beat St Kilda by 24 points, which saw $2.20 enter the AG wallet, as we had them by 1 to 39 points. Overall, we turned $50 into $62 in this code.
We had an even better result in Round 23 of the NRL season, when we turned $50 into $84. We nailed three of five suggested bets over the weekend, with Melbourne and Penrith beating the Roosters and Cowboys respectively by a margin of 1 to 12 points.
We also backed the Raiders by over 13 points against the Warriors, and thanks to a double from Nick Cotric, we collected $2.50.
In the world game, we backed Huddersfield to draw with Crystal Palace, but they did much better than that, with Socceroo Aaron Mooy making a dream EPL debut, having a hand in both of the opening two goals. The Terriers won 3-0.
At the track, both of our best bets came second at Rosehill on Saturday, Siege of Quebec in the sixth race, and Faith’s Encore in the eighth. Those results saw small returns of $1.70 and $1.80 go into the AG kitty.
Our tip at Flemington also finished in the placings, with Crocodile Rock finishing third for a return of $1.60.
Our overall result for the weekend was a return of $258 if you bet $10 per selection. A good weekend on the punt and a profit of $58. We’ll be back next week with the aim of securing an even bigger profit.
