The Australian Gambling staff didn’t have the best week on the punt, but we did manage to come out in front in both the first week of the NRL Finals series and Week One of the NFL season.
Our best result came in the NRL when we backed the Sydney Roosters to beat the Brisbane Broncos, and thanks to Latrell Mitchell try five minutes from the final siren, we collected a handy return of $3.
We also collected $3 when the Melbourne Storm held off a determined Parramatta Eels outfit by a score of 18-16, which means that the Storm can stay in the Victorian capital until Grand Final day, if they make it.
On the same weekend that the NRL enters the Finals, the NFL season began, and we started of our campaign with two handy wins, including the best single bet result of $3.42 when the LA Rams beat the Indianapolis Colts and the score in that game went over 41.5 points.
Our final best bet of the weekend came up in Dallas, Texas, when the Cowboys ran out winners 19-3 over the New York Giants, which saw $1.49 enter the AG wallet.
We had a poor day at the track on Saturday but we were unlucky when our value bet of the weekend Supreme Effort ran just outside of the placings in the 8th at Rosehill in Sydney, at the odds of $13.
We managed only one winner in Week One of the AFL Finals, with that coming up on Thursday night, when the Adelaide Crows beat the GWS Giants by 36 points. We correctly selected them by a margin of under 40 points, which gave us a handy collect of $2.10.
The All Blacks steadied against Argentina after trailing at half-time, which saw $1.08 enter the AG account.
Our overall result for the weekend was a return of $140.90 if you bet $10 per selection, which is a small loss of just over $19. It’s obviously not a great result, but we’ve already got our heads down studying the form so this time next week, it will be a different story.
