The first week of the NAB challenge is over and I’m happy to say that I picked 6 out of the 6 right. Too bad I didn’t place any bets on the NAB Challenge round 1.
NAB Challenge Round 1 Results
I have to admit that getting that result was a complete fluke. The problem with betting on the NAB Challenge is that getting a winning result is harder than when the AFL season actually starts. That’s probably why Fortuna has refused to giving us any tips on any of the NAB Challenge games.
I think the problem lies in the fact that you just never know who’s going to be in any of the actual games. Let’s face it, the NAB Challenge games aren’t really all that important. That being the case I’m sure the coaches aren’t going to risk any good players before the actual AFL season actually starts.
Take the Adelaide Crows vs West Coast game on Sunday. That fact that the Crows thumped West Coast doesn’t really mean all that much. West Coast obviously didn’t play a strong side, if they did I’m sure it wouldn’t have been such a thumping. As I said in my last post I wouldn’t be able to watch the game because I had to work. The first thing I did though when I got home was to ask my son who won. He said the Crows did but that it was a pretty boring game. There just wasn’t excitement in the game. It was all just one sided.
He also said, “Why would anyone even waste their time betting on the NAB Challenge?” Like I told him, there are those who probably like the NAB Challenge. It’s always interesting to see how the coaches play their teams. I’m sure they use it to gauge their players and for the new recruits to find their places within the teams.
Shit, I would’ve won some serious cash if I had thought to place a MultiBet with SportsBet. Oh well, maybe next week.
