ROUND 8 was a tough week for punters. Well supported favourites, Penrith and Newcastle managed to win but failed to cover the $1.90 line.
THE Rugby League weekend kicked off with the ANZAC Test on Friday night. Most of SportOdds League punters kicked the long weekend off with a good win, after Australia were heavily supported to cover the 18.5 point line that they had to give up, which they duly covered. Some money came from across the Tasman for the Kiwis at $6.25 to win the game, and they got 40-45 minutes to think that they had a chance of collecting at the big odds. Australia blew them away in the final 1/2 hour and deserved their good win.
