Despite a profitable week in our major sports of AFL and Rugby League, the Australian Gambling team ended up losing 22 per cent on our 29 Best or Suggested Bets over the past seven days.
Just 10 of our 29 betting suggestions saluted, including a poor performance in Super Rugby, where we went 0-3 and in the unpredictable A-League, where we also had no luck from three attempts.
If you spent $10 on each of our Suggested Bets, you would have outlayed $290 for a return of $227.70.
When you take out those poor performances in Rugby Union and Football, where we went just two from nine overall sections, we eked out a small profit of $178.50 return from $170 outlay.
Breaking down sport by sport, we had six selections in the AFL for four winners and a return of $80.5 based on $60 investment ($10 per bet). That’s a handy 33 per cent return.
In Rugby League, we only managed to finds two winner from our five selections, but those two selections each paid $3, meaning that a $10 bet on each of them, would have seen you win $10.
The two rugby league winning bets, which were Dragons to beat the Cowboys by less than 13 and the Eels to do the same thing to the Tigers, were our longest priced winners for the weekend. The Eels were 22-10 down midway through the second half, so we were happy with the end result.
Our two winning football bets for the week were both midweek, with Jiangsu getting past Gamba Osaka in the Asian Champions League and Juventus doing the same to Barcelona in the European version of that competition.
It wasn’t the easiest day for our racing tipsters. Selenia was a huge run as our best value of the day, and she paid $3.7 for the place, finishing third. French Emotion, our best Caulfield bet finished fourth. Aberro finished sixth in the Champagne Stakes.
We pretty much held our own in the final NBA matches of the regular season, with the Pacers getting the job done at $1.95, but the Trail Blazers letting us down. It meant a small loss in that sport.
As mentioned, the rugby union was a disaster, while our other suggested bet for the weekend was Kimi Raikkonen to finish on the podium at Bahrain.
The Finn ended up fourth, while his team=mate Sebastian Vettel won.
