I knew I should have gone Cook. Live and learn.
But that's the gist of my betting 😊

The way I look at it, is what does a South's victory look like?

Probably up by 2 tries, so the -11.5 line, Johnston loves scoring so 1-2 tries and someone else one.

The reason it's so good, is if a team is going to put 30+ points on a team, well someone has to score tries.

I’m not a massive Sports Bet guy but every now and then I’ll pop $50 in and live off multis from it for a few weeks ($5-10 bets max). This approach has been fun this year and my first bet in a month lucked out tonight!

My first sports bet was $50 on us to beat the tigers in the 2011 semi and Ive been trading off that money ever since (although I avoid punting on them now).
Not a big punter and don’t touch the nags or slappers (pokies).
I tend to bet against the odds rather than the team so if I see a team paying $5 and I think they’re a $3 shot I’ll take them odds- probably drop a fiver on it.
Also if a team is paying $1.60 and I think they’re a certainty I’ll take them odds too- that might be worth $20.
Not terribly scientific but it’s worked for me (although u could argue $462 dollars isn’t a great return for 11 years work 🤔 )
I'm a very low stakes beter.

I think i have stuck 50 Bucks in my account over te last 5-10 years and i net most weekends.

Lost $8 on the Eels last night because went they went down a try they jumped to over $2 and i stuck another $4 on em. That was a very big loss for me.

its enough money to have fun, but. It enough to change me life (positive or negative)

I'm the opposite lol. I'm the all or nothing type of person. Has worked out at times but has been terrible strategy this year.

Fairly small time better too.
Couple of strategies I take;
1.Medium stake. Bet the 4 highest paying favourites from a round (afl/nrl/super rugby) in a multi. Relatively small payout but happens relatively often.
2. Small stake. Multi bet for a full round. Usually pretty high payout but doesn’t happen too often. (Won’t bet on games involving the team I follow)
3. ‘Happiness bet’. Will multi up teams I follow that I think stand a decent chance of winning that weekend.
4. ‘Hail Mary bet’ sometimes put a small bet on a high paying outcome that I think has a realistic chance of happening. Eg this week was Wales paying $8 to beat SA- SA won from a penalty shot in the 82nd minute.
Go ok sometimes, can be a bit lean others. I’ll usually just chuck $50 in every so often and have a monthly deposit limit. withdraw winnings if it gets above $300(leaving $50), if I win I have some play money, if not it’s not a huge loss

Continuing the theme of betting against the Warriors in 2022 I have $100 on them to lose today 13plus. Will make $500 as a payoff.

Really tempted to put $100 on the Warriors just to counter this bet… but it’s the Warriors so I just don’t know…

The Warriors could easily win and are in fact favourites to win with the TAB.
I was just attracted by the $5 odds - thought that was too juicy to pass up.
Sorry for the disloyalty to the warriors. I will cheer like crazy if we win and count the cash if we lose by more than 13.
So I "win" in every scenario except a tight Tigers 1-12 win.

Half time and paying $36 …
