Yeah, to say that Fortuna’s AFL round 2 results 2016 sucked is putting it mildly. Getting only 4 right out of the 9 matches is a pretty poor effort if you ask me. Especially for someone who is supposed to be the sports Goddess of luck.Still, Goddesses can be pretty fickle at times and who knows what lessons those tips were meant to teach us.
Still, you have to admit that some of those results were pretty shocking and unexpected. Take the Essendon vs Melbourne game. Sure Melbourne isn’t the best performing team lately but I’m sure most punters would have tipped Melbourne to beat Essendon. Check out the reacting of Essendon’s upset win against Melbourne.
Another unexpected win, as far as I was concerned was Collingwood beating Richmond. I was sure Richmond would have this game in the bag which is why I made them the first leg of my Sportsbet MultiBet.
As for the Adelaide vs Port Power game, as much as I loved their win, being a Crows fan and all, their win did teach me a lesson. Stay tuned for my next Sports betting tip!
Lastly there’s the GWS Giants vs Geelong game. Maybe there were some punters out there who weren’t surprised at The GWS Giants win but it certainly surprised the heck out of me.
Luckily for me I am a responsible punter. As a responsible gambler I never bet more than I can afford to lose. At least I didn’t lose the whole bet because I still managed to pocket those winnings from the winning legs of my MultiBet. Not to mention the cash backs SportsBet gave me because of their latest special which I mentioned at the end of this post.
I hope you did better with your tips. Speaking of which how well did you do with your footy tips?
You got to hand it to Fortuna, she did pretty well with the AFL Results round 1 2016! Unfortunately for me I picked the two losers in my Sportsbet multi-bet. If the Hawks won like they were supposed to I would have got my money back.
Who the heck would have thought that Geelong would beat Hawthorn? I’m sure some Geelong fans would have backed their team and at 2.25 odds, if you used William Hill, they would have done pretty well. Patrick Dangerfield was pretty bloody amazing. Just about everyone including theRoar were pretty awestruck with Dangerfield’s performance. Perhaps if he was back at the Crows both the Hawks and the Crows would have won.
As for the Crows vs Nth Melbourne game, was that a full on game or what. The AFC reckon that part of the reason for the Nth Melbourne win was their home ground advantage. While that may have helped a little other factors would include the loss of Dangerfield and their new rookie coach, Don Pyke.
All that aside, I think their biggest failing was their loss of control.Some of the players let their temper cloud their actions causing ball turnarounds, 50 metre penalties as well as costing us a shot at goals. It’s quite possible that their lack of discipline cost them the match! Especially when you consider they only lost the game by 10 points!
Perhaps Fortuna had an inkling about their lack of discipline when choosing her tips otherwise her AFL Results round 1 2016 would have a few more losses.
On the bright side, even though I lost my Multi-Bet it wasn’t a total loss. Because I got 3 out of the 5 leg MultiBet right I got $4.33 out of the $10 bet back. That’s better than losing the whole tenner right? It makes my sports betting bankroll last that much longer.
As you know from last weeks post Fortuna played it safe with her AFL preliminary finals tipping. If you were one of the punters that chased the odds and went for either Hawthorn or North Melbourne you would have lucked out. As for me I decided to follow Fortuna’s AFL preliminary finals tips which resulted in two winning bets!
My main bet was obviously on the Hawks to beat Fremantle and my $10 bet with Sportsbet paid $15.90. Not my best winnings but not the worse either. Still, anything greater than a 50% return is pretty good in my books.
Then there was my $1 bet with William Hill which paid $1.85 which is an 85% increase. Some of you out there would say I would have been better off betting larger amounts of money but as I’ve said on more than one occasion, considering my financial status, that wouldn’t be responsible betting. If you want to enjoy you’re online sports betting then you should never, ever, bet more than you can afford to lose.
As for the actual scores for the AFL preliminary Finals Hawthorn 15 Goals 4 points (96) beating Fremantle 10 goals 7 points (67). Although Fremantle started off well in the first quarter it was only a momentary lapse on the Hawks side and it wasn’t long before they showed Fremantle who was boss.
As for the other AFL Preliminary finals match West Coast was just too classy for Nth. Melbourne scoring 10 goals 20 points (80) against Nth. Melbourne’s 7 goals 13 points (55)
Both games were pretty good to watch and as those punters who bet on matches for the enjoyment factor will tell you their small wager made them that much more exciting to watch.
I reckon the Age had a pretty good writeup on the Hawthorn, Fremantle game.
Looks like the AFL Grand Final for 2015 will be between West Coast and Hawthorn. I’m wondering what Fortuna’s picks for that game will be. I only hope that it turns out to be a really exciting game because that’s what we expect in a AFL Grand Final!
