ROBBO VS ROBBO
After my Melbourne Cup bets failed to salute I’m looking to today’s International Rules opener in Adelaide where the Aussies are $1.53 favourites against trophy holders Ireland, who have won four of the past five IR matches played in Australia.
I don’t mind the ‘under 105.5’ in the total points market ($1.90), as the locals may be scratchy with their round-ball accuracy. I’ll combine that with an NFL win for Carolina over your beloved Miami Dolphins ($40 at $2.38).
The Irish won’t like the forecast 34C, so I’ll have $30 on Australia by 1-24pts at $2.60. The remaining $20 goes on Glory and Wellington to split the points today ($3.75).
I’ll head across the ditch with my last $10, backing Perth Glory’s Diego Castro ($8) to break his drought and score the first goal of today’s clash in New Zealand.
Chris leads $1835 to $1735.
