A Centrebet multi player from Adelaide is still celebrating today after winning nearly $70,000.00 through an eight-leg AFL bet which landed all eight winners at odds of nearly 140/1!
The man, a regular Centrebet client, placed a $500.00 wager on St Kilda, Hawthorn, Essendon, Fremantle, Geelong, Richmond, Carlton and Adelaide all to win to collect $70,000.00!
Short-priced legs included the Cats at $1.12, Hawks at $1.37 and Crows at $1.38, but the real value came in the Bombers at better than $3.05, Richmond around $2.70 and Fremantle at $2.27!
“It’s one of the best results for a smaller to moderate-sized punter I’ve seen,” Centrebet media chief Neil Evans said. “To be able to turn $500.00 into $70,000.00 without taking any exotic or margin options in any game is magnificent, and again proves why multi betting generates a very large percentage of business in this country!”
Meanwhile, Carlton has opened a $1.85 favourite on Centrebet in the match of the round against premiers Hawthorn ($1.93) this weekend, while in the big Derbies, Pt Adelaide is a narrow $1.85 fancy ahead of the Crows ($1.93) and West Coast is $1.65 to repel arch-rival Fremantle ($2.20) in the Battle of the West! In the other hotly-anticipated clash, St Kilda is a raging $1.52 against Western Bulldogs ($2.50)! And Geelong has set a modern day price record, opening a prohibitive $1.01 (1/100) against spoon favourite Melbourne ($13.00)!
And Geelong has firmed to a hot $2.20 flag favourite with Centrebet after it’s demolition of the Lions yesterday, while rampant St Kilda ($5.25) is threatening to steal the second line from Hawthorn ($5.00) after its unbeaten start to the season! Meanwhile, Carlton has closed three points to $12.00 after wiping the Western Bulldogs!
