SCT Punters Club

Written by Motts on August 28 2015

Almost two years to the day ago, SuperCoachTalk kicked off a punters club. To begin with we had 11 keen punters and it was Yiorgakis who was our first ever punter. His bets were largely forgettable. The only one that got up was $15 on the ALP to win between 51 and 60 seats at the Federal election that took place that weekend paying 2/1 (our first and only political bet).

In the two years since by jingo we’ve lost a lot of money. But gee we’ve had a lot of fun! And sometimes, just sometimes, we actually MAKE dough!

We’re now up to 22 punters in the club with total funds under management of $1,213. We’ve also got $300 in Brownlow bets riding on Fyfe ($200 @ 1.70), Priddis ($50 @ 8/1) and Goldstein ($50 @ 5/1) courtesy of the mysterious Mr X who donated a monkey (half a gorilla, get it?) a couple of weeks ago. Just after Round 19 if I remember correctly….

If anyone wants to join us, its going to set you back $55. Send me a message via the About Us tab and I’ll send you my bank details.

I’m still in the process of looking for a sponsor of the club but I didn’t want to delay getting it up and running again any longer. If we do manage to sort something out after you’ve had your bets, I’ll retrospectively give you your bonus bets later on.

So everyone’s going to get $50 to play with this time ’round leaving us with $113 to put on as Group Bets. With the Brownlow so close and with so many footy mega brains on the site, I’m going to suggest we throw that money at some leading club vote getter bets. Does anyone else want to recommend something?

So in honour of the two year anniversary, I’m getting Yiorgi to send down the first pitch of this iteration (PC7). He’ll have his bets to me later today and I’ll update this post with them then.

In the meantime, is there anything getting around this weekend that you like the look of?

Yiorgi’s bets are:

M1 – $15 @ 3.67

  • Chelsea
  • Liverpool
  • St Patricks (Ire)
  • Vitesse (Ned)

M2 – $25 @ 2.26

  • Man City
  • Celtic
  • Cork City (Ire)
  • Barcelona
  • Porto

M3 – $10 @ 52.86

  • Geelong
  • GWS 15+
  • Hawthorn 60+
  • West Bulldogs
  • Richmond 25+
  • Port Adelaide
  • West Coast
  • Sydney 15+
  • Fremantle 36+

  1. Good to have the Punters Club up and running again.

    Poor Yiorgi can’t live his bet on that Federal election down. Saying that I am sure he will be running his keen eyes over the markets in the Canning by-election.

    Sounds good a few bets on most player votes. Must be aware of false favourites in those markets though.
    If I had a suggestion for a small group bet it would be to box Sodes three picks in the Brownlow in 3 quinella bets if the odds are decent.


  2. Yiorgi’s bets updated now. I’m hearing good things about a few Mick Price horses tomorrow:

    MR1, #5
    MR2, #5
    AR8, #10

    And you might also want to have a little something on MR6, #4.

    Good luck to us all.


  3. Mottsy’s Caulfield tips today:
    R1 – 5 Samartested
    R2 – 5 Sailing By
    R3 – 3 Real Time (but I’ll be avoiding this race)
    R4 – 3 Ready For Victory (best Quinella for the day is with 1 Prince Of Brooklyn)
    R5 – 1 Rich Enuff
    R6 – 16 Zebrinz
    R7 – 17 Vezelay
    R8 – 11 Volkstok’n’Barrell
    R9 – 13 Iggimacool

    Quaddie: 2, 14, 15, 16, 18 / 1, 8, 10, 17 / 2, 8, 11, 14, 16 / 1, 3, 13

    Good luck!


  4. Yiorgakis gets multi 2 home returning $56.50 to the club. Good but not enough to get himself a second crack this week.

    Next up we’ll give Matteo a crack.
