Legendary Lands – $500 into $13970.35
One Ladbrokes punter is celebrating a five-leg legendary land that turned a $500 bet into a return of $13970.35 in just one afternoon. All five legs took place on Sunday afternoon and featured three winning margin bets on the AFL matches and two head to head bets in the NRL.
The action began with the Hawthorn-Carlton match where our punter backed the Hawks to win by 40 or more points at $2.06 over the side on the bottom of the ladder. Not only did the Hawks take care of business beating Carlton but they were able to boost their percentage with a massive 124-52 win easily covering the punters winning margin. With Carlton waiting until the second quarter to score a point and having just eight points of three scoring shots at half time, the Hawks were in cruise control.
Leg number two featured another side backed to win big with the Eagles hosting the Bulldogs and taking full advantage of that home ground advantage winning by 54 points and covering the 40+ winning margin. That provided another boost for the multi offering odds of $1.97 for the win.
For the third and final AFL leg, our punter backed GWS to beat Port by 1-39 points at $3. During the third quarter the Giants lead blew out to 36 points and would have opened up some nerves in case they went on with it and turned it into another one-sided contest. Port rallied to bring the margin back inside two straight shots in the fourth quarter with the final score seeing the Giants win 80-58.
Both NRL legs were head to head bets backing the away side to win. The first game was the closest of the multi with the Storm grinding out a 12-6 win in New Zealand. It was not easy as they lead 8-6 at half time and needed two penalties from Cameron Smith in the second half to give them breathing space, however it was not a certainty until Simon Mannering’s error in the final minute.
To close it out, our legendary land backed the Roosters over the Sea Eagles and the visitors put on a show, scoring five tries in the opening 25 minutes before the Sea Eagles had a chance to respond. Those 28 points would have been enough to win they game but they went on with the job and posted a monster score winning 56-24, becoming the second team of the round to put up 50 points.
