In case you’ve missed out last weeks AFL round 5 results you can read that post HERE. Fortuna did pretty well with her AFL footy tips getting eight out of the nine right. Who could blame her for getting Sydney wrong. I don’t think anyone saw that one coming.
Now for this weeks Fortuna’s AFL round 6 footy tips.
Fortuna’s AFL Round 6 Footy Tips 2015
Strangely enough I completely agree with all of Fortuna’s AFL round 6 footy tips. It’s got nothing to do with Fortuna getting more right than I did in round 5 either.
Now that I have the footy tips out of the way I’m going to fire my Sportsbet app up to place this weeks MultiBet. Hopefully I’ll have a bit more luck this week and there won’t be any upsets like the Sydney vs Western Bulldogs game last week.
For my AFL MultiBet this week I’ve decided to back the following teams;
Western Bulldogs 1.38
Adelaide Crows 1.15
You can see from the image on the left that I actually have placed those bets. I’m hoping this bet actually comes through as it will make it my first MultiBet win.
As you can see the odd on the individual teams are pretty low so the most I could win if I placed a single $10 bet would be $13.80 by backing Western Bulldogs. If my MultiBet comes through I will win $22.58 which is a whole lot better. Heck, if I get cold feet during one of the games I may even Cash Out and take my accumulated winnings up to that point. I copied this from the SportsBet Blog about their latest Cash Out King.
Our Cash Out King definitely pulled out at the right time on the weekend. He had a $10 win-draw-win multi on the 10 EPL matches of round 35.
He picked the 8 winners on Saturday’s night matches, including Sunderland to defeat Southampton at $4 and West Brom to defeat Man Utd at $9.
His ninth leg was Tottenham to defeat Man City ($3.60) at White Hart Lane. With so much riding on this selection, our Cash Out King got cold feet and decided to pull the pin on his mammoth multi. What a great call!
He cashed our for $9.5k and Tottenham were beaten by Man City 0-1 after Sergio Aguero’s eight yard strike on 29 minutes.
The last leg requires Arsenal to defeat Hull ($1.61), which is yet to be decided. Regardless of the outcome, this lucky punter would have walked away with jack squat if it wasn’t for his choice to Cash Out and pocket $9,492!
Man, I wish I was that lucky, but then my odds were nowhere near as good.
I reckon its time to have a look at the AFL Round 5 results as far as Fortuna’s AFL footy tips are concerned.
AFL Round 5 Results Footy Tips & MultiBet Results
If you read my Fortuna’s AFL Footy Tips Round 5 post you’d know that those teams in read were the teams I selected against Fortuna’s advice. If I had followed Fortuna’s advice I would have got 8 right instead of only 5. What a bummer!
Oh well, I suppose 5 out of 9 isn’t all that bad.
My MultiBet Results
That post also spoke about the MultiBet that I placed with Sportsbet. For those of you who haven’t read that post I backed Sydney, Hawthorn, West Coast, Fremantle, Essendon and Adelaide to beat Port Power.
You can see the results of my MultiBet there on the right. Yep, unlike most online sports betting sites out there I actually do place bets on various sports games.
You can see at the top of the list that my MultiBet was a total bust. That’s because I backed Sydney to win. Who the hell would have thought that Western Bulldogs would actually beat Sydney. I reckon that would have to be the upset of the AFL round 5 results.
The only other one that I got wrong, and I was probably pretty stupid to pick them, was the Adelaide Crows. Still, I honestly thought that they could have won that, and they could’ve too if they’re kicking accuracy was better. Still, at the end of the day, even though some of the umpiring sucked big time, and I hate to say this, Port Powers was the better team and deserved to win Showdown 38!
What I like about MultiBets is that even though you may lose the main bet you still get something for the rest of your winning bets. So, all in all it wasn’t a total loss as I still won $5.34.
AFL Round 5 Highlights
Interesting highlights that came about in round 5 of the AFL include;
Talking Points Bulldogs vs Swans: Even the Bulldogs themselves admitted they probably wouldn’t have won if it wasn’t for ‘uncharacteristic Swans mistakes’ that proved costly. Sure they’re going to take the win but they’re not going to let it go to their heads.
Showdown 38 Highlights: Personally I put their loss down to their poor kicking and not using the corridor well enough to get the ball down for some decent scoring shots. Man of the game would have to be Eddie Betts.
You may notice in my MultiBet that apart from the Adelaide Power game I didn’t back any of the questionable match-ups which is why 4 out of my 6 bets paid off.
Something you may be interested in is that throughout the Adelaide Crows Port Power game I check out SportsBet Cash Out feature and I was able to cash out right up to the beginning of the final quarter.

Those of you who are my regulars know that Fortuna is our Lady Luck Of Sports. I had a char with her the other day and we decided to put her talents to the test. Starting from today we’re going to run a weekly Fortuna’s AFL Footy Tips. Too bad I didn’t think to have this chat with Fortuna earlier. Not to worry, starting on round five is better than hot having a Fortuna’s AFL Footy Tips at all.
Fortuna’s AFL Footy Tips 2015 Round 5
You’re probably wondering why three of the round 5 2015 AFL Footy Tips are red. It’s because no matter how much I argued with Fortuna about her picks she would not budge. Typical bloody woman.
OK, now that we have that out of the way I thought I may as well put Fortuna’s AFL Footy Tips to good use by placing a MultiBet with Sportsbet.
Placing a MultiBet with Sportsbet is so easy when using their SportsBet App. All I had to do was to tap each of the teams that I wanted to put a bet on. That put them into my Bet Slip. Once I made my selection I placed a dollar on each of the six teams I chose to back. Keeping with my responsible gambling promise of not betting more than $10 a week that left me four bucks. I clicked on the section that combined all 6 bets into a MultiBet and used the remaining $4 as my MultiBet.
The teams I backed, and their odds, for my MultiBet were;
West Coast: 1.64
Adelaide: 2.30 Yeah, It will be close but I really think Adelaide can win Showdown 38.
By using the formula I wrote about in my What Is A MultiBet post my MultiBet odds for that bet is $8.08. If all MultiBet teams win I’ll win $8.15 x 4 = $32.61. Adding the individual winning bets of $8.80 will bring my total winnings to $41.41
The question now is whether or not I will use SportsBet Cash Out feature before Showdown 38
