Well what a ripsnorter of a final round. Lids and NP who've been bobbing heads all year both win their bets but Lids comes good with a Josh Caddy hail mary to take the top spot. Mookieb had a great line multi at the end to shoot from 7th to 3rd.
Was great to see people's specialities form as the year went on.
Lids nailing some big tigers bets. 9/11 bets were on the tigers.
NP as ever hot on the GS markets.
Langdon excellent on the TP lines hitting 7/8 when just going a single line.
Ohhok consistent all year picking the best from all over the market.
The group ROI is 19%, meaning that if you took all the bets on the board all year, you'd be doing very well for yourself.
So well done everyone and thanks for participating.
There's murmuring around the punting board water cooler that someone, possibly the Grot might be running a finals tipping comp.
If you want your individual spreadsheets, DM me.

Brodie Smith u20.5 $1.88BE

Smith is the Crow's most important ball mover and North are a tagging team. If he stays at HB he'll get Pittard. If he moves through the middle, Anderson or McDonald. North are a good clearance side even without Cunnington and the Crows are the worst in the league by far (even the bombers managed 11 in a row last week). So even with the captaincy and more mid mins this week, i still think he's going to struggle. He is 2/8 so far in 2020 on this marker.

Yeh love this bet. On the topic of taggers, I'm also a big fan of Lloyd under 25.5 on SB. Should be a certainty to attract a tag from Geary (tagged Johanissen, Smith and Doch in recent weeks).

Also considered Tim Kelly (Guthrie tag) and Luke Parker (Steele tag) unders, although I'm not sure if those two will tag due their brilliant current form as a ball winning mid for their respective teams.

Looks like a favourite's round to me. Can't see Sydney, Essendon, Geelong or Fremantle winning given form or in particular industries. Might just go for a double with St Kilda and Brisbane at $1.98 TAB.

I think Ess hits the wall here. Scrounging out narrow wins against weak opposition with a weal line up given injuries. Distinct lack of key forwards means Andrews should dominate.
1u NM H2H
1u NM -10.5
Lets keep the favs rolling with 1u on StK H2H and 1.5u StK -14.5.
mookieb, The idea on this thread is that you post 1 bet, your best bet, per round.
I've already taken your first one so don't post any more please. Delete the second and third posts please.
Thanks

Eagles -14.5 @$1.90

Short turnaround for the Cats/hit by injuries/Eagles at genuine home should be too strong.

Expect the game to be tight for 2-3 quarters, with the Eagles to kick away as the game progresses.

Well that's more like it. 10/14 winners this week, taking the group ROI to 30%.
We're starting to see some expertise in specific areas. Ohh Ok on the H2H's, NonPhixion with the GS markets. langdon19 and Sausage Legs both 2-0 as well. Hellboy101 took out the biggest priced winner with his 3 leg multi.
The 'not AFL standard Billy Gowers clanger of the week award' this week goes to mouncey2franklin for tipping Josh Walker AGS when he spent the entire game in the backline. In saying that I had a 0.5u on AGS as well so you weren't alone. All worth it for the Majak moment.

Next round starts tomorrow so get your thinking caps on.

Geelong SU, Melbourne SU @ $2.07 (365)

Like backing superior teams coming off of a loss.

Bit of a let down spot for North after a big win. Geelong are 1-2 since starting hub life, and should be aided by the return of Narkle and Selwood. Rough loss to the eagles after leading most of the match, will be looking to bounce back. Much better side than North. Really important that they get the job done here and prove that they can handle the hub life which will be their reality for the foreseeable future.

Melbourne get two extra days break vs the crows which will be massively valuable. They’ll be looking to bounce back after a close loss vs Lions and a bit of a reality check vs Port. They’ll still fancy themselves as a final contender, so giving the crows a touch up is a great spot for them.

Saints, GWS H2H multi $2.40 bet365

Suns have been very impressive this year but have started to show signs of tiring the last two weeks for mine, particularly on the weekend with some of their younger players and face a short turn around to Thursday night. On the flipside Saints are flying at the moment but shouldn't be getting ahead of themselves given the games they've dropped, and get an extra day of rest.
Giants playing far from their best footy atm but have still managed to get it done the last two weeks and more games into Taranto and Williams should bode well. Greene obviously a massive out but think they can get the job done still, Essendon are really battling and I just struggle to see where enough goals can come from in their forward line to put up a match winning score.

Not just directed at you ILP, but can we add reasoning to each selection so we can get an idea behind the rationale for the pick?
Yeah that would great. I wrote that up in the OP. Would be good to know how people on here analyse the markets in order to come up with their bets so we can all learn different angles to come at it. Realise the footy is coming thick and fast atm so people might not have time though.

Apologies, I did post in the betting thread, why I thought Bont was a good bet for AGS, not this one.

junior what is the prize?
Says the guy who just went 3 in a row ;)
I think the prize is probably mad respect and also all of the money #1 made on the way to getting there.
Btw, would be good to know your reasoning as well about why you choose certain totals to bet on. But also if you don't want to give away your secrets, that's fine too.

Getting in before the forecast rain thurs-fri.
Mitch Georgiades anytime goal scorer into GWS to beat Don's. 2.77. Bet 365
Yeah had my first loser Tonite. Both legs were crunched in. Was the first time in his 4 game career failed to sausage up. Got his dukes on it in enough contests but didn't clunk many. Finally had a ping 30 out directly on front from a set shot and sprayed it. Still think was a good bet and would take the odds again. Just not Tonite.

Mate it’s a hard year for me as my model looks at the teams on and off their home grounds. Port at AO was one of the few games I can actually model this round. Rich and Bris at Metricon tomorrow night has never happened before, very hard to cap. I thought I summed it up that a bit of increased pressure from two teams going for the 8 would see a few sprayed shots and the total fall under the 120, (I capped at 115). I don’t have kayo or free to air so did not get to watch but it seemEd a few misses got the bet home.
Loved the U52 for the dogs as well, Port concede 46 or so points at home and dogs score 50 at AO. Thought the U120 was a bit safer so went with that.
