A the 2015 AFL season moves towards round 11 we come to our first bye round. That means we only have 6 games to look at from a betting point of view! I’m sure we all agree that football is a gruelling game. You can see how stuffed the players are at the end of some of the games and so byes are necessary to give the boys a break.
This weeks byes include Adelaide Crows, Richmond, Western Bulldogs, Brisbane Lions, Carlton and Hawthorn. Now lets look at Fortuna’s round 11 AFL Footy Tips.
Fortuna’s Round 11 AFL Footy Tips
Port Adelaide vs Geelong
Gold Coast vs Fremantle
West Coast vs Essendon
Nth. Melbourne vs Sydney
Collingwood vs GWS Giants
St. Kilda vs Melbourne
As always I’ll be using Fortuna’s round 11 AFL footy tips to place my next AFL Multi-Bet. As promised in my round 10 post I’ll be using Bet365 for this weeks multi-bet.
How To Place A Multi-Bet on Bet365
I have to admit it took me a little while to work out how to place a multi-bet on bet365 because they don’t actually call it a Multi Bet. Once I worked it out though it was a cinch.
As with Sportsbet and William Hill you simply click on the teams you’re going to bet on to create your ‘Bet Slip’. You then click on your Bet Slip. Below your bets you’ll notice a ‘Multiple Options’ tab. That only appears if you’ve bet on more than one game or sport. Click on that.
That opens up some more selections that you can see on the left side of the image above. As I selected four teams for my multi-bet my the ‘4 Folds’ turned out to be the selection for my multi-bet. If I had chosen 5 teams a ‘5 Fold’ option would have appeared and I would select that. If I only picked three teams I would select ‘Trebles’. I clicked on the ‘Stakes’ tab to place my bet.
Clicking on the actual ‘4 Folds’ link on the left brings up the middle part of the image above. That shows my stake, odds and how much I would win if my selections were correct. Bet365 also use the same formula as I wrote in this post to work out their odds.
The last part of the image on the right shows my actual bet. Yep, I actually place real bets to show you how its all done.
I noticed that Bet365 didn’t require me to actually place bets on the individual matches. I thought this was unique to them but after checking Sportsbet I found it also applied to them. This is cool because it allows me to place the full $10 wager on the multibet. The good thing is that means for a big win if the bet pans out. The bad thing is if it doesn’t I lose the total bet. While using the other system allows for a smaller win it also means you don’t lose as much if the multibet fails.
Oh, something else I’ve found out is that Bet365 also has a Cash Out feature, Can’t wait to try that out,
Stay tuned for an up and coming post that will rate the rate the different MultiBet features of the different online sports books.

Once again Fortuna did pretty well in her round 10 footy tips results getting 6 out of the 9 right. Lets have a look at the round 10 footy tips results.
Fortuna’s Round 10 Footy Tips Results
Unfortunately for me I decided to make the Fremantle vs Richmond game my first pick in my William Hill multi-bet. Talk about a bloody upset! Who would have thought that Richmond would beat Fremantle? I know Fremantle was pretty stunned to lose to Richmond. Shit, the Crows would have killed them last week if they played like that. Maybe we knocked the wind out of their sails in that game. :tongue_out:
The next game Fortuna got wrong was the Essendon vs Geelong game. That could have gone either way so it wasn’t as much of a shock as the Freo Richmond game.
The last game Fortuna got wrong was the Nth. Melbourne vs West Coast oneI In my opinion that was another upset. I’m sure most people would have tipped West Coast to win. I know I did! :pull_hair:
Do you remember the MultiBet I placed based Fortuna’s Round !0 Footy tips? As you know when placing a multi-bet you want pick those teams that you’re sure are going to win. That’s because if any one of them loses so does your multi bet. Well, as it turns out those three that Fortuna got wrong were all part of my 5 part multi bet. Oh well, that’s always a possibility when placing an online sports bet. That’s why it’s so important to gamble responsibly.
At least the multi-bet wasn’t a total loss. The two that won put $2.58 back into my sports betting bankroll. That’s one of the reasons I love my multi-bets. That and the fact it enables me to enjoy 5 of the 9 AFL footy games instead of just one. And all while keeping within my responsible gambling guidelines.
How did you go with your round 10 footy tips results?
Can you believe its round 10 already? That means its time for Fortuna’s Round 10 AFL Footy tips. Fortuna is really doing pretty good with her footy tips scoring another 6 out of 9.

Now that I have Fortuna’s round 10 AFL footy tips it’s time for me to work out my MultiBet. As promised I’m going to place my MultiBet with William Hill instead of Sportsbet.
Round 10 Footy MultiBet Tips
Just remember that I am not suggesting you copy my round 10 MultiBet tips. What you’re about to see is my MultiBet with William Hill. The multi bet you want to place is completely up to you.
Port Adelaide $1.26
West Coast $1.67
Placing a bet with William Hill was really easy. I simply clicked on the teams I wanted to place a bet on. That placed them all in my ‘betting slip’. I then put a dollar on each on those teams and then clicked ;Create Multi.’ Next I added my $5 stake and the clicked the ‘Confirm Bet’ tab. I was then take to another page so I can check my bets. Once I was happy with those I simply hit the ;Finalise Bet’ link.
If all goes well my $10 bet will return $41.36.
The question now is to find out if William Hill uses the same formula as Sportsbet when calculating the odds for their MultiBet.This post shows how MultiBet odds are worked out. Using that formula I worked the odds to be 6.777. Multiply that by my $5 wager gives me a winning payout of $33.89. Add to that the separate winnings of $7.47 gives me my potential payout of $41.36.
As you can see from the image on the right it agrees with the figure given to me by William Hill. That means they do use the same formula. Now all I have to do is wait and see how accurate my Multi Bet actually is.
