Vince Gambino’s Fantasy Footy Punt Club – RD 14

Published by Vince on

Well, we’ve done it community. We’ve made it through those bloody bye rounds man.

However as many of you know, injuries and suspensions to several key fantasy players have many of us in deep strife again.

That’s why I’m urging youse all to stay calm and draw upon the wisdom from the Jock Reynolds Community to push through this tough time.

In the meantime, let’s have a punt and try and win some extra cash!


Kane Cornes ($1.95) vs Heath Shaw ($1.80)
I just can’t see past Heater Shaw here community. He has been on FIRE recently man. After a little bit of a hot and cold start to the season, Shaw has caught fire in his last two games with 147 SC points against Melbourne and 136 against the Western Bulldogs. Heater’s record against the Power is good as well, with an average of 101 SC points. Kane Cornes was very good at the start of the season but has showed signs of dropping off recently with only two SC tons in his past five. Despite the Power riding high after their big win last week, I’m still backing Heath Shaw to get the job done here.

Brad Ebert ($1.88) vs Chad Wingard ($1.88)
The Wingard boy was absolutely brilliant last week, in what was arguably his best game for the season he kicked three crucial goals; however he could only manage 103 SC points. I’ve watched Wingard closely this year and it’s been a bit of common occurrence with him – plenty of good games but not many big Supercoach scores. Considering his impact last week, I wouldn’t be surprised if he cops a tag pretty early on tomorrow. Can’t see him having a big game. Ebert has been brilliant in his last three games, with scores of 112, 108 and 119 SC points. Might be a close one here community, but I’m definitely leaning towards Ebert. Jump on!

Ryan O’Keefe ($1.88) vs Bryce Gibbs ($1.88)
Just reckon ROK has the edge at home on Gibbsy here dudes. Gonna be a close one, but with O’Keefe’s very good record at the SCG I’m backing him to get the job done over Gibbs. Whilst Gibbs’ form of late has been good, O’Keefe’s has also been very good – he averages 115 SC points in his last four games. ROK loves playing my Blues as well – funnily enough his career SC average against Carlton is also 115. On the other hand, Gibbs only averages 87 Sydney. ROK too good at home here.


Matthew Boyd Over ($1.85)/Under ($1.85) 115.5 DT points
Although he’s coming up against the Dees, I think 115 DT points may be just out of reach for Boyd. His numbers are definitely down this year and he doesn’t have the ability to pump out the big scores like he used to. His DT average is the lowest it’s been since 2009. Interestingly enough, despite Melbourne being uncompetitive for large parts of Boyd’s career he averages only 76 DT points against Melbourne. His last three against the Dees read 86, 93 and 84. On the unders here dudes!

Patrick Dangerfield Over ($1.75)/Under ($1.95) 100.5 DT points
DANGER! Look out community, Dangerfield was red hot against Richmond in his last start and after a week off I reckon he’ll be raring to go. Although his DT average this year is bang on 100, his record against Gold Coast is very good. Last time they met, Danger pumped out 136 DT points against the Suns and has a career average of 108 against them. I’m expecting this good run to continue. On the overs man!

As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts or who you’re backing this week. Send us a tweet @Vince_Gambino or simply post a comment in the section below.

Happy Punting!

I like the look of ROK over Gibbs – as you say mate he loves the SCG and he also kicks right into gear as an older bloke at this time of the season.. thats where my $10 will go this week I reckon


Ebert over Wingard looks a goer there, Vince. Danger over 100.5 looks like a good choice also, he should tear the place up I think.

In DT groups i'm looking at Heath Shaw at $6 in Power v Magpies Round 3 Group 2. Going against Wingard, Cloke, Harry O, Wines, Monfries, Blair and O'Shea in that one. No one stand out there although Cloke could win if he has a big one, but I wouldn't think the likes of Wingard, Wines, Monfries, Blair and O'Shea would outscore Shaw. If you're going for Shaw over Cornes in the SC H2H, you may as well chuck a couple bucks on this one too I reckon.

Hopefully you guys checked out the Thursday game and got on the easy Watson winners there with over 99.5DT points @1.70 and his group selection @4.25. Started my bet week off well there.


Hey Vince – thanks bud. I won the Stadium football Syd vs Cats game. Took awhile to get it all sorted and as a result still have $300 to spend. I think I need to put it all in one bet? haha (nice right?) and for odds over $1.50

Who'd be your best bet? Dangerfield?


How long is the cow of cash, B.Goodes, out for?


He was a chance to play this week, so hopefully only one but maybe a couple. But that's what they said about Gibbs earlier in the season (but that was a hammy, which are notorious for taking longer than expected to repair – see Paul Chapman).


Eddie Betts first goal – most goals. Bang Bang


what do you reckon Vincenzo


Got a question jock, could you play Tom Mitchell on field ?

And also do you think it's time to get rid of hanneberry? Or wait a bit as he's pkaying melbourne and gws, is likely to do well as an outside player


Damn, had $5 on Sydney, Adelaide and Geelong all winning by 1-39. Got my odds out to $10.50 and then Geelong had to go and win by 41!

Got the winners with Ebert and Dangerfield, but bombed out on Shaw this week.


Uberst post for 2014 so-far. Thank you very much
