The Australian Gambling staff had a great week at the Wimbledon Championships in Southwest London, backing three winners from four best bets, turning $40 into $77.40, if you placed $10 on each suggested bet.
In the quarter-finals, we had the Simona Halep – Johanna Konta match to go over 21.5 games into Roger Federer to win, for a collect of $2.13. That win was followed by a great result in the semi-finals, when Bren O’Brien selected all four winners at the odds of $3.78.
The women’s final was won by Garbine Muguruza, which we had, but Marin Cilic didn’t win over 17.5 games against the Swiss Maestro in the final, which would have given us a perfect result of four from four best bets saluting at the Old England Club this week.
Besides Wimbledon, it was a lean week on the punt. We managed just one win from five in both our AFL and NRL best bets, which obviously isn’t ideal, but we missed out by just five points in the Richmond-Brisbane game, and seven points in the Melbourne-Adelaide game, so we were a little bit stiff.
In Rugby Union, we landed one of our three best bets, with the Chiefs saluting by over 13 points against the Brumbies. This earned us $1.53.
We had a poor day at the track, with our best and value bet of the day losing at Caulfield, and the best at Rosehill coming up short. The closest we got came in the last of the day at Caulfield, when Tried and Tried ran fourth.
Daniel Ricciardo came fifth in the British Grand Prix, just missing out on his sixth straight podium. He went down with one hell of a fight though, coming from the back of the grid, in what was a great drive. We had him to make the podium.
Gunner Nelson let us down at UFC Fight Night 113 in Glasgow, after half of our multi bet had already won, when we took Joanne Calderwood’s bout with Cynthia Calvillo to go over 2.5 rounds.
Our overall result for the weekend was a return of $146.20 if you bet $10 per selection, which is not great, but rest assured, we will be back next week with plenty more winners.
