The Gambino Fantasy Footy Punt Club – RD 9

Published by Jock on

gambino supercoach punting clubAlrighty community, here we go again – it’s time for Round 9 of the Punt Club. I do love all of you that are apart of this special Jock Reynolds Community and it’s great to see so many of your fantasy teams going along nicely. How about we top that off with a bit of extra dough hey?


Matthew Boyd ($1.95) vs Nick Riewoldt ($1.85)

Ahh, I can definitely smell the value here. As many of you all would know, Riewoldt has been playing like a rejuvenated man this year. His fantasy scores have been the best they’ve been in a long time thanks to his new position playing up the ground and winning plenty of possessions. I’m a big believer in form and the numbers make interesting reading. Boyd’s DT average of 87.6 points this year is the lowest it’s been for SIX years whereas Riewoldt’s current DT average in 2013 is the second-best of his career. Riewoldt’s last three scores are 117, 123 and 99 against quality opposition whereas Boyd’s last three scores are 96 (against GC), 65 and 80. The numbers don’t lie man! I’ll be snapping up Rooey this week.

Matthew Priddis ($1.75) vs Callan Ward ($2.00)

Community legend Mick Da Mad Irishman was bang on with his evaluation of Priddis last week and many of us are thrilled we jumped on board. Priddis has been an ever-reliable fantasy scorer for years and years now. After a so-so week against Brisbane in Round 7, Priddis was back to his best in Round 8 pumping out 104 points against the Roos. Ward on the other hand has been solid, if not unspectacular this week. His average is marginally down on last year and has a mediocre average of 78 DT points against West Coast. The young Giants are in Struggletown at the moment and I’m expecting Priddis to do an absolute number on them here. Priddis all the way baby!

Marc Murphy OVER ($1.85)/ UNDER ($1.85) 104.5 points

I’m on the leader of my mighty Blue baggers here community. So listen to the ‘man in the van’ when I tell ya Murphy is red hot at the moment and will CRUISE past the 104.5 point mark. I was down at Visy Park this week and I’ll tell ya that Murph was looking very slick indeed. Take away his stinker against St. Kilda a couple of weeks ago, Murphy has been super consistent this year scoring comfortably over 100 DT points in every game bar two. Ahh, and if we have a look back at Murph’s last three games at the Gabba (Brisbane host Carlton this week) we see scores of 109, 129 and 115 points – sick! Murphy, just like myself, absolutely loves BrisVegas. OVERS here community!

So there you have my specials for the week. As always, ask me any questions in the section below or tweet me at@Vince_Gambino

Happy Punting, Vince Gambino.

Any past results to share yet Vince? Maybe a spreadsheet?


LATE NEWS: GEELONG pair Billie Smedts and Josh Caddy have withdrawn from the squad to face Port Adelaide at AAMI Stadium on Saturday, allowing Mitch Brown and Jordan Schroder to return to the Cats' 22.

Port Adelaide has also made a late change, giving forward John Butcher his first game of the year after ruckman Matthew Lobbe suffered an ankle injury at training on Thursday night.

The Brisbane Lions are also set for a change after vice-captain Tom Rockliff revealed first-year player Sam Docherty would come into the side to face Carlton on Saturday night. Defender Mitch Golby is the likely absentee after missing training on Friday.

UNDER A CLOUD – Essendon has cleared Michael Hurley to play against Richmond in the Dreamtime at the 'G clash against Richmond after he suffered concussion against the Lions last weekend.

– Josh Jenkins has also been named in Adelaide's squad to face North Melbourne on Sunday, despite hyperextending his knee against St Kilda last week.


Put my $5 on Riewoldt for this week. Seems like a good bet, he scored 99 last week and had a top notch defender like Daniel Talia on him. Doubt the Bulldogs will be able to keep up with him.
