Week 1 Review
A successful start for the service for us with our big treble landing leaving us to walk away with 11.2 Points of Profit, here is a brief recap of the games we were invested in.
Gloucester 36 – 3 Worcester
Our treble got off to a flyer on Friday night with Gloucester destroying Worcester in the 2nd half to win 36-3 at Kingsholm. A contest Gloucester dominated was only 3-3 at half time after numerous errors by the home side that kept them from having a comfortable lead. Second half was a different tale however and with Worcester going a man down to a yellow card, 5 Gloucester tries sealed a blowout victory and gave them the bonus point victory.
Leicester 22 – 31 Exeter
This game started badly for us with Leicester welcoming back 6 internationals they got off to a flying start and lead 22-14 at the break. The second half was a different story though as Exeter were at their machine like best grinding away as Leicester players tired to win 31-22 and come away with a bonus point win.
Saracens 47 – 13 Bristol
Bristol started brightly in this and held a 13-7 lead early on. Saracens scored on the brink of half time to go ahead 14-13 and from there they never looked back. A vintage Saracens second half saw them score 34 unanswered points and run out 47-13 winners thus landing out 15 point treble.
Recommended Bet: 15 Points TREBLE Gloucester To Beat Worcester (3/10), Exeter To Beat Leicester (4/9) and Saracens To Beat Bristol (1/9) – Treble Pays 21/20 (2.08 Decimal) – WON = +16.2 Points
Due to Exeter resting a few players and Leicester having all their internationals back the odds on Exeter were hopefully much better than the 4/9 quoted so I hope the treble returned more than the +16.2 points it did for me.
Sale 22 - 10 Northampton:
An extremely frustrating game from our point of view in which my pre game fancy Sale (who I wasn’t confident enough to back outright) ran out second half winners after a drawn first half saw the game 10-10 at half time. This scuppered any potential half time full time bets and with Sale winning the second half 12-0, a half time draw full time Sale was the inverse of what we wanted to happen from a betting perspective.
