Bolar's Best Bet Bonanza

I have two internet accounts. One will be used for these plays. The other will be used for my other bets. I've put aside $1500 in one account for these plays. These plays may occur once a week or even twice a week depending on what is available and how solid they look. It will more than likely consist of AFL betting.

I will be making big plays on some short priced favourites throughout the year - generally no more than $1000. The goal is to prove that you can make money this way if you play your cards right and wait for the right play.

Each bet I win, the winning amount is withdrawn and placed in a savings maximiser account to accumulate interest. The goal at the end of the year is to increase my bankroll by quite a bit. It can be done with patience and perserverence.

If I were to do a $1.20 favourite each week, then I would need to win every 6 bets for a loss to make a profit. How much profit I make is up to the plays I make. Watch this thread as I believe come October, it will be highly profitable.

I'm currently researching what could be a good bet for this week so I will have a play tomorrow!

I would add Super 14 and maybe soccer in here as well. Super 14 seems to have on average 1-2 upsets per round sometimes.

Good Lukc though.

Week 1

St.Kilda to beat Sydney @ $1.45 - $1000 to win $450.

Sydney start the season slowly. St.Kilda have a strong team. St.Kilda at the dome are the play. Feel this is a very strong 90 - 95% play. The one I'm most confident about.

Good luck!

Chris Judd and Cousins no longer play for the Eagles. Kerr is too injury prone so expect him to enjoy a lot of time on the sidelines this season.

Team isn’t even the best in their own state ;)

I know may be a bit high in terms of odds for you, but the only value i can find so far is Sydney to beat Port- 1.72

This is getting too easy. Unfortunately didn't have time to get on the Cats.

If you've been tailing me for the last two weeks you would have made $810 - that's nearly a fortnightly wage for a low income worker on top of your fortnightly wage. Not a bad return. $810 in two weeks - can't complain with that. More to come.

Geelong will be too short against Melbourne next week :sad:

Yeah, but with all due respect, one loss = losing the equivalent of a fortnightly wage. You need to consider that side of the equation too.

So far so good though. I'd be hoping for Collingwood to take the foot off against Richmond this arvo so their price is not too short next week. The Blues are playing to avoid their longest ever losing streak and I'm sure Collingwood will take great pleasure in extending it.

Collingwood x Fremantle all the way to the bank.

You can never trust Fremantle, they'll fuk you over, no matter the team they play.

Likewise you cannot ever be totally confident backing a team in a Carlton-Collingwood game. Both sides tend to lift and are bought back to a similar level. Carlton didnt play that badly last night, if they can organise something in defence they might be ok. Im hoping the bookies give a line in the vicinity of 25-28 points coz i will take Carlton at that.

Another week and more money.

$1000 on Bulldogs to win @ $1.40 to win $400

The Dogs are the play of the weekend again. Sitting comfortably and Richmond are coming back from Perth. Dogs should get it done in the end.

Good luck!

Thank fuck for that draw.

Loss

But the dead heat rule came into affect as the draw wasn't offered on the head to head odds.

So it works out this way.

$1.40/2 x $1000 = $700

Therefore a loss of $300 and not $1000.

Thank fuck for Minson kicking the goal and Lake faking the injury.

Got out of jail there. There is no way the Dogs should have lost that match anyway - so many missed shots on goal.

Do you mean the Tigers should not have lost that match? Had five more scoring shots than the Bulldogs (19.16.130 v 20.10.130) and were up by 25 points midway through the fourth quarter.

YTD after 7 rounds - $2535 with an average of $357 a week.

Not bad so far. Let's keep it up.

This week is a week off because of the Tribute match unless I find a good League or Union play which is highly doubtful.
