Footy is only days away and as the build up continues I have set myself a challenge. The plan is to do a weekly multi-bet throughout the season and to make it more interesting I’ll be publishing it on AFL Online so everyone can track my progress and see how I fair throughout the season.
To make it clear I don’t plan to use a strategy. I’m just using my knowledge and opinion to make an educated guess and try to find value throughout the season.
Criticism is expected as finding value will result in picking roughies. I don’t expect to win every week, I just hope I am up at the end of the season.
Now on to Round 1…
Leg 1: Carlton – WIN – Under 39.5 Points – $2.30
First of all – I am a Carlton supporter. I think the value in this game is definitely with Richmond, they know they can beat us. They proved that in round one last season. The difference being that in round one last year Chris Judd was all the hype, the tables have turned and everyone is talking about Cuz making his debut for Richmond. At the end it comes down to preseason form. In the NAB Cup Richmond looked rusty, poor disposal which they can’t afford to take in to round one.
