Obviously a bit will depend on how certain players back up from friday's test .. but early leans on the Cowboys to bounce back at home against the Panthers (@ $1.40) .. A few think the $1.45 for Melbourne over Souths is value but I think the Storm are little suspect when they're out of their comfort zone (ie playing at home on a saturday night).

The in-form Sharks are worth consideration at home against a Head-less Dragons, and if Marshall doesn't play for the Tigers then Manly will be hard to go past, even at Leichhardt Oval.

Canberra perhaps ATS (+8.5) against the Eels too ..

Bookies continue to underate the Storm and I plan on backing them ATS again for the $$$.

Manly ML looks the good to against the Tigers with or without Benji imo.

In the big derby Im I wouldve pounded the Dragons, but no Matthew Head = No bet, might take the over tho.

Agree the over (47.5 total points) looks the goods at Shark Park .. Think the winner of this will need at least 28 or more points in the bank .. Would say the same about the Manly v Tigers match, but no total is up yet (on TAB Sportsbet) ..

Cowboys/Storm double looks enticing but the pic of the bunch and Best Bet of the Weekend is Sharks 2.07 over Dragons,pound the shit out of this game b4 its drops to Sharks favs just like last weeks Stroms/Dragons game!!!Most likely the only bet of the weekend and its going to be a big one!!!!!Go Sharkies!!!

Gotta agree with Andrew .. Storm do look over the odds. If King, Webster and Kidwell all come through tonight's Test ok, they're good things to beat the Rabbitohs (who isn't?!) .. Cowboys simply will not lose three in a row and two straight at home .. Muz has been into them this week and I think they'll respond in a big way. Cowboys X Storm looks a nice double @ $1.95 ..

Sports Freak, you're absolutely correct too, the Sharks are specials at odds against to beat the Dragons.. No Matt Head, plus key players backing up from friday's test, plus home ground advantage and great recent form for the Sharks.

The only drawbacks are the fact that the Saints are coming off a loss, and good sides have shown a propensity to hit back hard in these situations in recent seasons.

Nice win on the tennis last night so a bit of consolidation is all that's required .. Finding the -7.5 for the Cowboys extreeeeemly tempting but that'd be breaking my rules so a likely play on Cowboys X West Coast @ $1.75 ..

12-0 looking good, I can't believe the line was so high for the Raiders and I'm on too. Eels don't deserve that kind of line in the first place, especially with Hindmarsh and Tahu backing up from yesterday.

This is what you call FREE MONEY.

Geezus.. glad I adhered to my rule of avoiding local derbies and subsequently not playing the Cowboys X West Coast double as prosposed above .. Told all and sundry at work to pound the Cowboys X Melbourne this weekend .. pity I put the cue in the rack and did nothing tonight ..

Storm win 34-12 was reasonably close until Storm took over with about ten minutes to go. Shouldnt have been close at all, absolutely stupid call to send Crocker off for ten minutes. In that time Souths scored 2 tries.

Backed the Storm -7.5 @ $1.98 yesterday and then to my surprise I come on this afternoon and the line had change to Storm -6 @ $2.01 so I pounded it again.

Taking the Sharks and hopefully to the bank,Barrets going to England could spell Big Trouble for the Dragons,plus Sharks are on fire atm!!!

40 units on Cronulla Sharks 2.00 over St George Dragons - Sharks in a canter,12+ isnt out of reach either!!!Could add Knights 1.50 for abit of a risk,but what the risk when you got Joey plus Budsy!!!

Good luck!!!- Other leans on Newc ML n Spread/Bulldogs/West Tigers!!!!

It's blowing a gale in Sydney right now, so if anyone hears any news on what way the teams are running in the first half could you post it here. Would be very helpful to find that out in regards to first half betting.

Cheers,

Screw the HT bets mate, pile on the Tigers today, specials against the silver tails :p

I'll post any news if I hear anything

Why are you plumbing for the Tigers BG? I've been leaning towards Manly but what's your reasoning for liking the Tigers..?

bad gambler
05-07-2006, 04:35 AM
Gibbs, Marshall, Hodgson, Harris all in for today - first time in a while Farrah, Prince and Marshall are playing together, those 3 are lethal

Packed house at Leichardt, always tough for visiting teams, BK and Menzies having to back up from Friday and lets face it they are not sprint chickens anymore, 2 days recovery is not enough for 30+ year olds ;)

I would also be all over the overs in that game as well, but the windy conditions deter me

Brett Stewart's out for Manly too .. might tail you on that .. I like the chances of the over in this one but if you say it's windy there ..

Mate I'm tempted by the Tigers now that they are nearly at full strength, but my maroon and white heart is making it very hard to pull the trigger.

It is literally blowing a gale here, I live about 5min from the SFS and Leichardt is not that far from here either

In fact tempted to hit the unders in the chooks game, but i've loaded up on the tigers, so sitting tight with that

It was disgraceful wasn't it. It's hard to believe how may calls he got wrong. You can understand one or two getting through to the keeper, but it seemed like every second set one of the teams was getting shafted. Hopefully they stick him in premier league for the next few weeks, but for some reason I doubt that will happen.

The only saving grace for him in the end was that the more deserving team won. If the Tigers had of lost I don't think he would have got out of Leichardt alive!!

Cheers,
