Currently in this six nations we are 2-2 (probably down 1/4 of a unit I would need to calculate)... see thread http://pregame.com/pregame-forums/f/13/p/229309/1405054.aspx#1405054
Anyway todays picks is my most confident so far....thought i'd make a new post since the other one is a bit old...
Scotland v France (-6.5) (-110) (Betfair)
This line is absolutely nuts so far I cannot actually understand why France are less than double digits..I have seen a few books with -7.0, I would play it up to -8.0 at least, France wins this easily by 10 points.. BOL guys really like this pick but no bitchin' if it doesnt come off!!
BOL Conor, I will be on board. Love the seeing the rugby on here
Thanks for the wishes Gristle..one thing to be careful of when betting rugby (you might be familair with it but some people may not be) is that a draw is a possible outcome so always take a spread / handicap that is by .5 of a point instead of a full point (i,e, 6.5 or 7.5 instead of 7.0) or your book may have the option for TWO-WAY HANDICAP (WIN-WIN) instead of THREE WAY (WIN-DRAW-WIN)
Theoretical example of this -
BET 1 on France -6.5
BET 2 on France -7.0
Results is France 21-14
- result would be that you would win BET 1 (-6.5) but BET 2 would not result in a 'PUSH' but would result in a LOSS as the result including the 7 points is a DRAW...I don't know how this works with American books but it is just something to be wary of, always try to get your bet on so that it cannot result in a draw...
Sorry Gristle and any1 else who took it... can't believe the result, France just didn't show up in the first half and won the game by 6 points so we lose the bet by half a point - hard to take but...
No worries Conor, had them in a ml parlay. Got to hate losing by that hook though... Look forward to more rugby action.
