Mr X Round 26
Last week the 4 leg all up didn’t get home but I will say I did stick to my Nth Qld tip in a big way and Sunday was a beautiful day for all.
Now the last round is here and we have a battle for the minor premiership to look forward to on Friday night – GOLD!! I like Souths to shade the Roosters in this one.
Those Monday night games especially like the super tough one between the Sharks and Roosters in round 24 showed that these guys are not robots. It’s so hard to back up and both teams looked below their best in their losses in round 25. It has been happening for 100 years and when you find those exceptionally hard games one week you can usually bet against them with some confidence the following week.
The top 6 are all sweet, set and safe, and therefore this weekend doesn’t hold a lot for them albeit they want to go into the playoffs with confidence from a victory. They will also balance that with avoiding injuries and suspension at all costs.
The ones that can’t make the finals will be dreaming of Monday.
Therefore my punting this week is solely around the top sides for this season just finishing it off with some nice wins:
- Souths to win Vs Roosters @ $1.51
- Melbourne to win by 7 points or more Vs G Coast @ $1.22
- Nth Qld to win by 7 points or more Vs Tigers @ $1.22
- Manly to win by 7 points or more Vs Panthers @ $1.26
- Newcastle to win by 7 points or more Vs Parra @ $1.18
All up it looks like $3.34 at time of writing and a nice way to end the home and away season for us in 2013.
