Back after two weeks and the Weekly Punt has three line bets that present really good value. The Weekly Punt has yet to post a loss this year and chances are this week will be no different.
The Cats performed poorly last week but losing Rivers and Caddy early didn’t help matters. Are the Cats currently just doing enough to get four points? Chris Scott will want to make sure that Geelong will not get complacent against the Tigers who are currently on a losing streak and want to get back on the winners list. Therefore the ‘serious’ Cats this week should win by a big margin ala’ Collingwood did to the the Tigers back two weeks ago. An unbeaten run of eight should extend to nine in emphatic fashion, so take Geelong with Betfair who are offering $2 on the -17.5 line and the bet of the round.
The Saints have not been that bad this season despite only notching up one win against GWS. They have been largely competitive in most of their games, only losing three of their games by three goals or under. They have also beaten the betting lines three times this season. Collingwood on the other hand have beaten the betting lines only once, and that was against the Tigers. Collingwood still have some key outs and the +27.5 line for St Kilda with Betsar is still way too large right now.
If there was ever a time for Gold Coast to beat Fremantle it would have to be this week. With Fremantle this week boasting a injury list that their cross-town rivals tend to sport, Gold Coast at home could prove to be too good for the Dockers. Take the safe option and put your money on the +16.5 line for the Suns offered by Betstar.
