CrownBet.com.au’ latest ‘Punter of the Week’ mixed the old with the new over the weekend, combining three AFL and NRL bets with three from The International eSports tournament to turn $20 into a massive $7958 payout!
LEG 1: SYDNEY (40+)
Our punter’s weekend got off to a great start with their pick of Sydney by more than 40 points getting up at the juicy odds of $5.75. Geelong have enjoyed a great record at home in recent times, having won 15 of their last 16 games at “The Cattery”. But our clever punter knew that the one loss in that time was to the Swans in 2016 and they were prepared to back it happening again.
LEG 2: MELBOURNE STORM (-4.5)
Our punter again took recent results into account for their second leg, backing the Storm to repeat their away win over the Cowboys in 2016 even with a handicap of 4.5 points. Melbourne once again showed why they are Premiership favourites, easily accounting for North Queensland by 18 points to give our punter their second win.
LEG 3: SOUTH SYDNEY H2H
Hopefully our punter didn’t have a heart attack in the last minutes of this match! They must have thought their multi was dead in the water with Souths down by six points and with five minutes remaining, but late tries to John Sutton and Adam Reynolds saw the outsiders home by just two points at the odds of $2.80.
LEGS 4-6: THE INTERNATIONAL ESPORTS TOURNAMENT
To bring this mega multi home, our punter correctly picked three blowouts in the Group Stage of The International eSports tournament paying $2.00, $2.45 and $2.60. With the DOTA 2 finals starting on Tuesday, there’s still plenty of opportunities to have a punt on one of the world’s richest sporting tournaments.
