Bet On Hawks To Beat Port Power

Last week I wrote a post on how I bet on the Crows to beat Collingwood!  Everybody said I was crazy and that they didn’t stand a chance in hell. I didn’t care, I had a gut feeling. Besides, Collingwood weren’t paying much so it wasn’t really work p;acing a bet on them. As it turns out the Adelaide Crows won and my bet365 kitty is slowly starting to grow. This week I’m taking another chance because I bet on Hawks to win.

Today Port Power is playing Hawthorn. Port Power’s playing at home and so they are the favourites. Not to mention that they are on the top of the ladder and have been playing very well.

The Hawks are third on the ladder but are sporting some injuries. having said that some of the young players have stepped up. Also, if you consider that the Hawks have won six of their past seven against the Power, including three of their last four matches in Adelaide, I reckon they actually have a good chance. Check out the Hawks full match preview.

As for the Power, they’ve just come off a bye so one would assume they’d be fit and raring to go. Even so this Power vs Hawks review show they’re not about to take the Hawks lightly. They know they’re fighting the reigning premiers who are not about to lie down and give them an easy win.

I was at work today when I checked my bet365 app during my break and noticed their odds were 2.65. It only took seconds to bet on Hawks to win. I’m not a big gamble so I only placed a $10 wager on them to win. If they do win it will net me $26.50! Now I just have to sit back with a couple of beers and, hopefully, watch the Hawks turn the Power’s light off.

I’ll be updating this post sometime after the match with the match results.

Shit, I can’t believe I lost that bet. I was sure the Hawks would beat Port Power. Oh well, you can’t win them all.

A Bet On Crows To Win

Last week I wrote a post introducing you guys to bet365. You may have read that post, if not you should read my bet365 review. In that post I happened to mention that I placed a bet on the Adelaide Crows vs Collingwood match. That alone wasn’t enough to cause a stir, but the fact that I bet on Crows to win did.

I have to admit that was a very exiting game. The fact that I placed a few bucks on them to win not only made the game even more exiting, it made the win a whole lot sweeter. Before I get to how I placed that bet on Crows to win let’s take a little look at the scores during the game.

ADELAIDE             1.4    5.6    9.10   10.16    (76) 

COLLINGWOOD    3.3    6.6    7.8     7.13     (55)      

As you can see, even though the Crows were the first to score it wasn’t until the third quarter that they finally started to get their act together. Even though they were 14 points up at the end of the third quarter, knowing how they’ve been known to fade out in the last quarter, I didn’t think it was enough to get them over the line. But, get over the line they did.

Speaking of the third quarter, I well remember in the dying seconds of the game I was yelling at Jenkins to hurry up and kick the bloody ball before the siren went. As it was the roar from the crowd was so loud I couldn’t hear the siren anyway. Apparently nobody else could either. Even though Eddie McGuire, Collingwood’s president had his knickers in a know saying the Crows kicked it after the siren the time keeper was adamant they it was actually kicked before the siren, as reported in the Herald Sun!


Adelaide: Jenkins 4, Douglas 2, Jaensch, Podsiadly, Cameron, Betts

Collingwood: Lumumba, Pendlebury, Beams, Blair, Swan, Cloke, White

Bet On Crows To Win

OK, back to business! How I bet on Crows to win. Even though I was at home I decided to place the bet using the bet365 app to see exactly how it worked. It was a cinch. From the home screen I clicked on the Australian Rules icon. Then on the AFL – Round 9 lines/Game Lines. Once in the game lines I clicked on the To Win Icon. Then I simply click on Adelaide to win and place my $10 bet.

Before writing the post today I wen back to the app and clicked on History to bring up my settled bets for last week. You can see my $10 bet/stake in the image below. I now have $216 in my betting account ready for the coming rounds of football.

If you haven’t joined bet365 yet, don’t forget the the 100% bonus bet365 are offering all new members. A hundred bucks of that $216 is my gift from the sporting guys at bet365 for depositing $100. If you haven’t joined yet now would be a good time before they cancel the deal.

Sports Jokes

Those who know me know that I love jokes. I love listening to them and I love telling them. The only problem with me telling jokes is that I usually laugh at my own jokes. They tell me that’s not a good thing to do. I don’t have a sports jokes video left but I have posted several jokes on YouTube. There’s actually a series of videos that I’ve posted called Laughaholics. The most popular so far of the series is the Blonde Jokes video which you see below.

I also post a series of weekly jokes on one of my other blogs called Friday Funnies.  Some of these posts are so popular they’ve received thousand of views!

It’s because I love jokes so much that I thought I would introduce a Sports Jokes category for this blog. Short or long the jokes that I’ll be posting on this blog will all be somewhat sports orientated.

Sports Jokes: Woman Learning How To Play Golf

A woman is learning how to golf. She has been teaching herself to play for more than three months and she is really bad. She decides to consult a golf pro. When she sees the golf pro, she explains how bad she is and he tells her to go ahead and hit the ball.

She does. The ball goes about 50 yards into the brush slicing to the right.

The golf pro says to the woman, “I can see that you have a lot of problems. Your stance is bad, your head is all over the place, and the worst thing is that grip.”

When she asks what can be done to fix the situation, he suggests, “Grab the club gently, as if you were grabbing your husband’s “club”. When the feeling is right, go ahead and swing.

“She does just that and the ball goes off the tee perfectly straight for about 275 yards.”

The golf pro says to the woman, “That is unbelievable, I didn’t think you would do that well. But now on to your next problem. How are we going to get that golf club out of your mouth?”

Talking about jokes, how about raising the eyebrows of your golfing buddies next time you go and tee off. A great way to do that would be to use some nice looking naked lady golf tees. I reckon that’s one way to get a naked ladies to hold your balls while playing golf 😉

golf sports jokes

Something I’ve learned since starting this site is you can actually bet on golf games. Don’t laugh. It’s all I can do to keep myself from falling asleep while watching them play golf on TV. The golf games I loved watching are Happy Gilmore and Caddyshack. 😀

Sure hope you liked the first sports jokes post.
