higgoThe Machine gets smashed!

Credit where it is due; The Sportsbet lines were very accurate this week with four of the nine games being forecasted to within 10.5 points. As published previously, I am in this until season’s end or until my $100 runs out.

Can The Machine fight back?

This week I was a little pleased to see The Machine’s lines more closely match Sportsbet’s lines. Currently it has won five of its 11 bets ….. three wins this week will have The Machine back in profit by a whopping $6.80.

Of course, the money is of little interest to me. What really excites me is the ability to take on the Sportsbet model through the use of my own mathematical forecasting.

Alright boys, this weeks multi : Hawthorne 1-39 ($2.10) into Brisbane with 14.5 points start ($1.53) into Sydney to win by 6+ points ($2.00) into Port to win ($1.83). This will get us juicy odds of $11.75!


PS: Collingwood v geelong is too close to call. If you can find a 'pick your own total points' market think the above 175 total is the way to go. Also can see the chance of a Western Bulldogs upset on the cards but not confident to put the hard earned $$ on it!!!


well….wasn't expecting that from the hawks, sorry freo!


Great multi mate


Sorry T bone, mixed bag this week. Hit last weeks (which you find on the thread) paying $10s! Really was expecting more of a show from Freo and Brisbane!


The predictor might have it wrong on the West Coast vs Saints game…


The Saints to get within 10 goals of WCE is the bet, I think it may just be on the money. Time will tell.


Higgo loving your work.

Working on two variations (the General Principle and the Soreness Deviation) using your machine selection as the foundation. Two weeks in results are promising, the Soreness Deviation $17.60 profit after round 2 is currently outperforming the General Principle $1.46 profit after round 2. I will keep testing a post results.


I would not know the way I halted upward in this article, on the other hand assumed this post was once wonderful. I wouldn’t recognize whom you are but you will any well-known blogger if you aren’t currently. Many thanks!
