I’ve been playing around with MultiBets for a couple of weeks now and there are a couple of things that I have found out. The first thing is that I love MultiBets. The other thing is that I need some sort of MultiBet tipping strategy!
MultiBet Tipping Strategy Isn’t Easy
Truth be told though that no matter what anyone will tell you coming up with a winning MultiBet strategy would be next to impossible. Take the last MultiBet that I placed with Sportsbet last week. My MultiBet tipping strategy for that bet was to pick what I thought were sure winners for the first few bets so that I could ‘Cash Out‘ if things started to look sour. That’s why I tipped Western Bulldogs, Sydney, Fremantle, Hawthorn, the Crows and Carlton. I figured at least the first five would come in and I would be able to cash out with Carlton if they looked like losing. As it was the Western Bulldogs lost, who would have thunk it, and I lost another MultiBet.
That’s the trouble with betting on sports, any type of sport, no bet can ever be a sure thing.
That’s why I use my online sports bets to enhance my sports watching experience. That’s why I’m so glad I discovered Multi Bets.
As you all know I’m all about responsible gambling. That’s why I only ever bet $10 per week on any given sport. The trouble with that is I don’t get that extra kick from watching some of those other games. Those Multi-Bets make those extra games more exciting without upsetting my responsible gambling rules. Now I can enhance the enjoyment factor of six of my favourite sports games instead of just one. Naturally if one of those MultiBets actually paid off that would make the experience that much sweeter.
It’s time for me to pick another lucky sports bet. As usual I ask Lady Luck as to whether or not I should place a bet. Fortuna, our Lady Luck of sports, has had a pretty good run so far. She did get last week wrong though but maybe she was trying to tell me something. :tongue_out:
When I asked her if I should place a bet this week she pointed to William Hill. As I’m not a William Hill member she’s clearly telling me to place a bet.
Ok, so the first thing to do is to check my Sports Betting Apps to see who has the best odds. As you know I’ve joined three of my favourite online sports betting sites.
Yeah, you know I’m going to bet on the Crows vs Collingwood game. I should have bet on the Crows last week but I chased the better odds and backed Port Power instead. As it turns out Port Power, although it was a brilliant game, let me down.
Out of my favourite online Bookies SportsBet and William Hill are offering the best odds. William Hill have been pretty lucky for me so I figured this week I’ll place my wager with them. Hopefully it will turn out to be a lucky sports bet for me.
Lucky Sports Bet For The Adelaide Crows
Both the Crows and Collingwood played well last week. I reckon the Adelaide Crows were the better of the two. Also, the fact that Steele Sidebottom is out means that Collingwood will need to pick up their game.
Of course one never knows how things will turn out when it comes to betting on any sport outcome. Upsets happen all the time. This is why you should always bet responsibly and never bet more than you can afford to lose.
The Melbourne Cup, the race that stops a nation is only a day away. That being the case I think I should place a bet tonight, especially as I have to work tomorrow. The problem is which horse to put my money on. I know in my last post which included some tips on how to pick the Melbourne Cup winner, I mentioned that the favourite rarely wins but I think listing theMelbourne Cup favourites will help me to narrow down the selection of horses that I want to back.
I did read somewhere that out of 153 races a Melbourne Cup favourite has run the race 34 times. That’s a 22% chance of actually winning. So maybe renowned punter John Beedle of Ashfield, who I quoted in my last post, wasn’t totally correct. I mean a 22% chance of winning is pretty good. A lot better than picking a horse at random.
Melbourne Cup Favourites 2014
I’ve decided to place my bet using Bet365 for this race so all odds I quote in this post will be Bet365 odds.
Admire Rakti: This horse is definitely the favourite, winning the Caulfield Cup last month. They say distance is not a problem. At 6.00 the odds aren’t all that bad for Admire Rakti.
Lucia Valentina: Was second to Admire Rakti in the Caulfield Cup and I read on TheNewDaily that mares have won 5 of the last 16 races. Her odds are 7.50
Signoff: The NewDaily also said of Signoff “…snuck into the Cup field with an effortless win in what was a weak Lexus Stakes on Derby Day. There is a sense of timing about this bloke. He is peaking at the right time and gets into the field with just 51.5kg (Joe Moreira will ride 0.5kg over). Odds also 7.50.
Fawkner: Owner Lloyd Williams thinks he has this horse primed to win the Melbourne Cup.At 8.00 Fawkner pays somewhat better than the favourite.
So there you have it. I noticed also that Bet365 odds were better than those quoted in most sources I’ve read.
Now comes the crunch. Which horse to put my money on. Seeing as how I didn’t actually place a bet last week, and sticking to my responsible gambling criteria, I actually have $20 betting money up my sleeve. Rather than placing it all on one horse I’ve decided to back two horses.
Melbourne Cup Favourites Bet Of The Week
Admire Rakti: I placed $5 for a win at 6.00 and $5 for a place at 2.10. A win will get me $40.50 whereas a place will get me $10.50.
Fawkner: Fawkner was my second horse of choice and again I placed $5 for a win at 8.00 and $5 for a place at 2.50. If Fawkner wins I’ll get $52.50 whereas a place will get me $12.50.
If both horses manage a place I’ll be up $3.00. Not much but better than a loss.
Over to you guys. Who are you backing for the Melbourne Cup?
