    Fuck you Dallas.

    Last leg of the multi ended up looking like Haywards.

    They were the shortest odds I had as well.

    I have been looking at property in Nicaragua.

    Sounds like your wife isn't paying you much attention at home. Might be time you save some of your winnings for a down payment on a new place.

    I started the weekend with $62.51 placed several bets over the weekend and this morning I have $63.78 in my account. So without bragging too much I cleaned up!

    Thanks mate, yeah good payout in the end as I'd pretty much been betting on them to win the title each week I made a profit.

    So with the ITM cup done, the Super Rugby Squads have just been announced and I reckon it's pretty clear who to bet on this year:

    Rules of Super Rugby Betting as it stands:

    1) never bet on a SA team unless it's a full strength LIONs team
    2) never bet on an OZ team
    3) Never bet on the Blues.

    So basically that boils down to 4 teams worth having a look at:

    Highlanders - new coach, a very good guy, chatted with him a bit a couple weeks back and was very impressed. They've brought in several new players, BUT, while I think they will make the playoffs and be good to bet on during the year, I don't think they can win it.

    Chiefs - in short, they have lost way too many key players: TKB and Cruden he main ones, but also Lowe, Leith and a couple others. I don't think they have filled those holes well enough, so I put them in a similar boat to the Highlanders in that they may be good to bet on, on a game-by-game basis, but they won't win the title and may not even make the playoffs this year.

    Hurricanes - Basically the same core group of players as last year but with improvement. I think they are a very good shot at winning the title this year - waiting for the odds to come out but I'll likely be on them to win.

    Crusaders - AS with the Canes, same core group + improvements. They will be the favourites I suspect but worth every Penny.

    If I can back the Canes and Crusaders to win and effectively get odds of $2 if either win I'll be a happy man. I think the key is to take both though to cover for injuries, and be sensible about the timing with which you add to those bets as the season progresses. These teams will likely lose a few games during the season as they have tough draws playing NZ team regularly and inevitably rest and rotate which may result in unexpected losses. Back them heavily when these losses eventuate as that is when you will find value but trust that at the business end of the season these two teams will get the job done!

    Odds are out in NZ and both the Crusaders and Hurricanes are paying $4.5.

    Im gonna start by putting 6 units Canterbury and 4 Canes as I think $4.5 is overs for the Crusaders.

    That gives 2.7 x money invested if Crusaders win & 1.8 x if Hurricanes win.

    That feels about right to me. I seriously don't see another contender for this trophy outside of these two and the Lions. So I'll take my chances with this. Feels like a strong bet to me.

    At any stage in the season you can get either of these two teams at over $4.5 load up I reckon!

    Have been on Who Shot TheBarman the last couple of years.  I'll be throwing something decent on the place at $16.  Has got to be one of the best roughie chances I can remember.

    Watching all 3 of his Cup runs again shows how good he is.  3rd in 2014; got stopped in his tracks in 2015 when in with a chance; came flying home from dead last last year for 5th from barrier 20.

    Same barrier and likes circling the field anyway so I was actually happy he drew wide to blow his price out.  Got something small on him a few weeks ago at $67 before his MV Cup win, he then halved his price.  Barrier draw has him back out to that  Very Happy  

    Obviously needs some luck at the jump and make history being a 9 year old, but I don't actually need him to win at those place odds!

    Part time punter nowadays, so who are we on lads?
