The Friday Flutter: Christmas Shopping and Conference Championships

Posted at 18:26 2010-12-03

It’s Friday and if your lucky enough to not be dragged into the nearest Westfield to fight over the half a car park left in the place, while your other half is busy spending your bankroll on expensive gifts for relatives that you didn’t even know you had... well your in luck, because it means you can put your bankroll to good use on some nifty little picks from the Friday Flutter team.


NBL (Friday Night) 8pm AEDT: Gold Coast Blaze vs. Sydney Kings (Live ONE HD)

The WIN Entertainment Centre was fittingly the site for a win for us last weekend as the Wollongong and Sydney game just got over the game total. Hey a win is a win and we’ll take them however they come. We’re back on the NBL Friday Night grind again with a bet on the Gold Coast Blaze -3 against the struggling Sydney Kings. Our partner books Party Bets, Bet365, and BetRedKings are all still hanging this spread, but we expect it to beat the closing number so move fast if you want to get in the game. That one is an 8pm AEDT tip off shown live on One HD, so get the beers in the fridge and wrestle the remote off the Mrs.


A-League (Saturday Night) 9:15pm AEDT: North Queensland Fury vs. Newcastle Jets

The Newcastle Jets have been on a decent run of late and if you count their win over a star-studded LA Galaxy lineup in their friendly match up, the Jets are on a five game undefeated streak. The Fury finally showed some signs of life coming from behind to snatch a shock upset win over Gold Coast United during the week. This game will mean a lot to both sides and while a lot of the big tippers are on the draw, we kind of like the value of a home win at one of our books. That’s why we’ll be taking North Queesland to win at odds of $2.50 at Bwin.


College Football (Sunday Morning) 11:45am AEDT: Florida State vs. Virginia Tech

Conference Championship weekend in the College Football is always exciting and depressing at the same time. It’s the final weekend of the college game before a hiatus that leads us into Bowl Season! It also means that we’re getting very close to the end of another College Football season, which is kind of sad.

We’re known for going to the glamour conferences week to week to ensure you get the best bets in the College game. Although the ACC is considered a BCS Conference it is certainly known more for its basketball prowess than ability on the gridiron. Florida State and Virginia Tech have both had seasons that reflect their conference in a lot of ways. Both initially were written off after losses that they should not have taken, only to fight through their schedules and qualify for the conference title game.

They now showdown for a winner takes all trip to the BCS. Who gets it? We like the underdog Florida State Seminoles+4 to get the chocolates against Tech. Tech is the public favourite but the sharp money like the Florida team. We like the sharp money, because it makes money. Take Florida State+4 at Bet365.


Best of luck wherever you decide to put your money this weekend!
