    I’m in a sports bet syndicate with ten of us in it ($20 bucks each a week so $200 outlay). We take it in turns to bet, if you win you keep betting and you can bet on any sport you like except horse racing (that’s a separate syndicate).
    I assume there would be a few gamblers amongst the forum so I’m wondering if you guys have any left field suggestions from sports I know little about.
    I’ve got a mate who bets on the American football and said that it is quite easy to pick winners in.
    It’s my bet again this week but only just – I foolishly split my bets into some on Michael Clarke to top score (on Friday unfortunately), for 6-7 sixes to be hit in the innings (only bloody 4 hit by Pollock) and a draw in the Adelaide v Central Coast NSL game which saved my backside.
    My old man reckons the NBL is a piece of piss to pick winners in but the odds are **** so I’m not that keen for that option.

    PJ I would have $150 on the Lankans tonight to beat SA @ $2.30 and have a $50 on Jayawardene for most SL runs @ $5.50

    Potential return of $470.

    PJ: Bet against the Toronto Maple Leafs and you're in for a sure winner. I swear to Jeebus the under 8's team here could beat them fairly resoundingly at the moment.

    Sorry... just needed a vent and this thread seemed like the best spot for it!

    Having said that I hope he does as I have him in my Dream Team :)

    No point betting on the South Africans anymore now that Pansy Cronje is dead.

    True Fluff but I just have a feeling Jayawardene is in for a huge night tonight. Having said that he will probably get a duck.

    Jaya was looking good too.

    That was possibly the weakest attempt at a final overs run chase that I have seen. The Sri Lankans bent over and took it from the saffas.

    If they are bowling yorkers come down the frickin pitch and hit them!!!!

    We will crush the Sri Lankans tomorrow. Look for Gilchrist to fire and dont be surprised if we are none for 100 very early on.
