In hindsight the rugby league bets we put on were fairly silly! Yeah we knew at the time taking the Raiders and Eels in three different bets didn’t make sense, but we thought they were bankers.
It’s early in the season and the upsets come thick and fast. Both the Panthers and Broncos played well to break through for their maiden victories of the 2011 NRL season.
In terms of the BBB we had $50 riding on those multis bringing the balance to $350. Last night if you were on our Facebook Fan Page you would have noticed me posting our other bets.
I had $10 EW on my trotter that ran 4th in a photo. It was the fastest race run of the night, but he had every chance and should have done better. He raced at the same track against mostly the same horses a fortnight earlier and came 2nd in a race he would have won if it was a touch longer.
I had $20 on Golden Archer last night at Moonee Valley at $1.55. There were comments made on the Facebook fan page about whether or not this bet makes any sense. As I said on there, the way I see it it’s a “banker” for me that pays for a more exotic multi – like the one I’m about to mention.
Our NBL sports writer Ben Waterworth predicted two upsets last night. We decided to take his advice and bet both dogs to win by 1-10. The Melbourne Tigers won the first leg by three points and the second match the Perth Wildcats were up by 4 points with 6 minutes to go. Unfortunately they squandered their lead to lose by four. That two leg multi was paying $14.06.
This morning the balance was $320 – so we managed to lose $80 on the first day (with the $10 premier league bet pending). This morning I have put a couple of horse racing bets on, and later tonight we’ll be putting plenty of sport bets on.
This morning I put $20 on Essington to win race 1 at Eagle Farm. This won’t be paying much at all, I doubt I’ll get even money here. He’s trained by Darryl Hansen who trains my horse, and in fact I went to see him on Thursday afternoon. The trainer and staff are very happy with him and he should win this race by a mile. He has an apprentice on board to claim 3kg.
The second bet that I put on was a multi with short priced favourites in today’s feature races at Rosehill, along with Essington. I put $20 on Essington, Sepoy, Satin Shoes and More Joyous. I can’t see any of them losing so it looks a great bet to me. In fact, several of them should put plenty of space on their opposition.
The last bet that I put on was $20 on UNLV to cover the -2.5 point spread against Illinois in the NCAA March Madness basketball competition over in America. Our Yankee sports writer has been on fire and he knows a ton about betting over there. In fact he won a tipping comp with over 50k tipsters! We’ve taken his advice on this one with odds of $1.91 to cover the spread.
After putting these three bets on the balance comes to $260. We still haven’t unlocked the $200 bonus but not too worried by that. When we start winning a few bets that will be unlocked in no time at all.
