I’ve been a little stressed the last few weeks. So much so you may have noticed some mistakes in the images accompanying some of my posts. Today is no different. If anything I’m even more strapped for time, so I won’t have enough time to gather the best AFL odds for you this week.
What’s really pissed me off is that I missed another chance at winning the Million Dollar Tipping competition. Sure I would have missed out anyway because my tips were a little off :tongue_out: but knowing I forget was pissing me off. I won’t do that this week.
At least I’ve still got Fortuna’s AFL round 23 footy tips for 2016.
*Adelaide Crows vs West Coast (Adelaide)
Geelong vs Melbourne (Simonds)
Essendon vs *Carlton (MCG)
Sydney vs Richmond (SCG)
Gold Coast vs Port Adelaide (Metricon)
Nth Melbourne vs *GWS Giants (Etihad)
St Kilda vs Brisbane (Etihad)
*Hawthorn vs Collingwood (MCG)
Fremantle vs *Western Bulldogs (Domain)
This is where I usually give you the best sports betting odds offered by my top three online sports betting sites. Not today though because, as I mentioned at the beginning of the post, I just don’t have the time.
I did have the time to place a multi-bet though using Sportsbet. Just to be different I placed ten bucks on the teams with an Asterix next to their name. A win will put $44.79 into my sports betting bankroll!
That’s it for my AFL Round 23 Tips! I wish you all the luck in the world with your sports bets. Just as a matter of interest, who have you backed this week?
Was we head into Fortuna’s AFL Round 20 Tips for 2016 we can only hope that her AFL Round 20 Tips are just that little bit better than last weeks! You may recall that last week Fortuna scored 8 out of 9 bringing her total to 115 for the year.
Richmond vs Collingwood (MCG)
Sydney vs Port Adelaide (SCG)
Melbourne vs Hawthorn (MCG)
Gold Coast vs GWS Giants (Metricon)
Western Bulldogs vs Nth Melbourne (Etihad)
Adelaide vs Brisbane (Adelaide)
Carlton vs St Kilda (MCG)

OK, this week I’m going to take advantage of Sportsbet’s AFL Round 16-21 Head To Head promotion. You can find that and other promotions here. What I’m planning to do is place a bet on one of the games that offers reasonable odds. If that bet wins I’ll place an other bet on another match. If the bet loses but I get my money back because of Sportsbet current special, I’ll place another bet on another game.
If any of the bets loses and there is no money back then that’s the end of my betting for that week. This is all part of my responsible gambling. There’s no way that I’ll keep betting to get my money back. That’s how problem gamblers get into strife!
For my first bet I’m placing 10 bucks on Collingwood to beat Richmond. If that bet wins I’ll place another bet on another game. I’ll be updating this post with any future bets. Once I lose a bet I’ll place proof of all those bets at the end of this post.
I’ve had a few subscribers ask me why I didn’t include a section on sports betting tips. As I told them one of the reasons for not having a category featuring sports betting tips is that the main purpose for the site is to provide my readers with the best online sports betting sites to join. That’s the reason I named the site EZ eSports Betting. I have researched all the online sports betting sites represented on this site. I’ve found them all to be secure and they make sports betting online easy and enjoyable.
I’ve also joined several of the online sport betting sites so I can take them for a test spin. When I do that I write about my experience from being an online sports betting member of their site.
I also want to make this site enjoyable, entertaining and informative. In order to do that I made the following categories.
Hot Sports Hunks: I had a few complaints from the ladies so I started this one especially for them Personally I don’t have much of an idea what makes a Hot Sports Hunk, being a male and all, and have asked for input from the women. Still waiting. :tongue_out:
Sports Jokes: This section is for all sports related humour.
Sport News: Every now and again I do a post on some of the more interesting sporting news
Sports Betting Reviews: There are a lot of products out there to help the sports betting punter. This is where I post reviews of sports betting products.
You will find a complete list of categories over there on the right.
Truth About Sports Betting Tips
Now comes the main reason why I don’t offer sports betting tips on this site. I personally believe that all sports betting tips are bullshit. When I started my Bet Of The Week category it had nothing to do with offering my readers tips. I just write about the sport I’m betting on any given week and why I placed my bet the way I did.
The truth about sports betting tips is that nobody can accurately predict the result of any given sporting event. If they did they would’t need to have these sites asking for people to join to get the most accurate sports betting tips. If they were that good they would be making enough money simply by collecting all their winning bets. Why do you think the bookies make so much money? Because most punters have losing bets.
I’m sure a lot of you guys have placed a bet on the advice from some friend or other. How many of them paid off? Not all that many I’m sure.
Having said that, you have more chance of winning a sports bet, in relation to those sports based on the results of two teams going head to head. Predicting a winner when it comes to sports like horse racing is a lot more difficult. I wrote about this in my post comparing sports betting to other forms of gambling.
Personally I wouldn’t pay to join a site for sports betting tips. I’d give a free site a go but I wouldn’t be upset at all if those tips didn’t turn out to be accurate. I do believe though that there are sports, such as racing, where a good knowledge of all the variables may increase the chances of a win. Someone in the know my be able to offer a sports betting tip but once again I still think those tips just may not pan out.
So, how many accurate sports betting tips have you received? Let me know in the comments below.
