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
