: This week's award goes to the customer who placed 2 bets on the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Magic v NSW Swifts Netball clash on Monday night. They had $14,030 on Waikato winning by 1-5 goals and $14,030 on Waikato winning by 6-10 goals.
The NSW Swifts put in one of their most disappointing ANZ Championship efforts and went down 63-45 meaning Waikato won by 11+ goals and our punter was left lamenting.
TAB Sportsbet punters have launched a mammoth plunge on Penrith this afternoon with money coming strongly for them in their Monday Night Football clash with Gold Coast but also to make the final 8 in season 2009.
The plunge was led by a $50,000 wager @ $5 for Penrith to make the final 8. They currently sit outside of the 8 on four points and meet competition leaders Gold Coast on Monday Night.
In that Monday night match Penrith have been the subject of a pluge as well.
Bets of $40,000 @ $2.05 and $20,000 @ $2 were taken on them to win the match along with $20,000 @ $1.85, $5000 @ $1.80 and $3,500 @ $1.75 all on the Panthers at the +2.5 point line.
Bets taken yesterday include $6,000 and $5,000 @ $1.85 +2.5
Doubts over Titans co-captain Luke Bailry no doubt added to the punters confidence.
The sides have met once at CUA Stadium with the Titans getting home 24-22 in 2007.
In other matches this weekend Canberra have been well supported to defeat Bulldogs with bets of $22,000 @ $1.85 as well as $25,000 and $10,000 @ $1.80
Warriors will be out for back to back wins at Olympic Park on Saturday against Melbourne and have been backed at the +7.5 point line. Major bet was $22,000 @ $1.90
A number of matches are attracting interest in this week's AFL with Carlton the best backed side.
The Blues come off a loss in Sydney last week and meet Western Bulldogs, also coming off a loss, on Sunday. Good money for Carlton at the +6.5 point line with bets of $15,000, $10,000 (twice) and $5,000 @ $1.90
Western Bulldogs loss in the west last week hasn't deterred a customer risking $7,000 @ $1.15 the Dogs to make the final 8.
Essendon meet Collingwood at the MCG in the traditional Anzac Day match with the Bombers popular at the +17.5 point line. Bets of $10,000, $8,000 and $5,000 (twice) were taken @ $1.90.
One bet of $5,000 @ $2.90 was also taken on Essendon to win the match.
Adelaide are short odds ($1.33) against last start winners Melbourne but one bet of $10,000 and another of $5,000 was taken on the Crows.
Competition leaders St Kilda meet Port Adelaide on Friday with one customer placing $5,000 on the Saints winning by under 39.5 points at the odds of $2.50
Multi players are trying to create value for themselves with bets of $10,000 @ $1.51 on Collingwood/Geelong and $5,000 @ $1.83 on Collingwood/Adelaide.
Interest was high in last night's opening ODI between Pakistan and Australia being played in Dubai.
Punters finished on the wrong side of the leger with Pakistan prevailing. Bets of $7,000 and $5,000 @ $1.70 along with $10,000 @ $1.67 went astray on the Aussies.
Australia go up as $1.80 chances for Game 2 on Friday with Pakistan once again outsiders at $1.95
