Any AFL tipster/punter knows how difficult a start this AFL season has been. With Hawthorn and Sydney yet to register a win and Richmond sitting undefeated near the top of the AFL ladder, the season has brought with it a whole lot of surprises.
That wasn’t the case for one punting mysterio who managed to correctly predict the margin of all nine games through Sportsbet.com.au
and netted himself $69,979 for just a $10 investment.
With Round four spanning over five days, two more than normal, the Punter was forced to sweat his big collect all through the Easter Long weekend. The Bet started on Thursday Night with the Eagles holding the Swans at arms reach.
The first of the Punters good fortune came on Good Friday with Lindsay Thomas missing a shot on goal in the dying seconds that would’ve giving North Melbourne the victory. His $70,000 dream looked toast on Saturday afternoon as Melbourne struck the front after staging a spirited fightback, before Cam McCarthy kicked the most memorable goal in this Punters betting career.
With Hawthorn sitting at 0-3 and the Geelong at 3-0, this Punter thought the Cats could clear the Hawks by over 40 points, despite the Easter Monday clash being historically close. It proved to be a $70,000 decision as the Cats piled on 11 goals to 2 in the final term to win by 86 points.

“What a great effort, we can’t recall a punter picking the margin and winner of every game of a round. This AFL genius only had one nail-biting moment with the Dockers, but he has won enough to look up Cam McCarthy and buy him a drink,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
