The satta market suffered a great loss when the team India lost in the semi finals of ICC World Cup. And the loss of the favourite Indian team led to the loss of punters as well. India lost to New Zealand in the semi final. Many hoped that India’s win will help their pockets, but they bled dry.

India is out of the world cup, as it lost the knock out match to New Zealand. And many who betted on India suffered a huge loss. A betting insider told the FPJ that more than 90% of the bets were riding on India. But they suffered a loss of Rs. 1000 crore. And around the world, the loss was almost the double.

New Zealand had a slow start, and the dismal batting pitch did not give them much room to bat. Seeing this, many betted on their favourite team, India. The rate for India was Rs. 4.35. And on the other hand, for New Zealand it was Rs. 49.

Many assumed that Black caps were losers. But surprisingly, their bowling took India by surprise. And the tables turned when top three batsmen of India left the crease too early. Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul got dismissed early. And as per Satta king, even after this, many punters took chances by seeing the partnership of Dhoni and Jadeja.

India’s score was 200/6 when Dhoni and Jadeja were on crease. But after Dhoni’s run out, the stadium went quiet with disappointment. And the silence was a defeat. New Zealand bounced back in the last two overs and towards the fag end India lost wickets.

Punters who planned on having a big party after the win cancelled the bashes after huge loses. One of the punters Rajveer Singh lost 10 crores which he won from India’s successive win. He said – “Even in session to session bidding, punters lost huge amounts as they had placed bets on Dhoni-Jadeja partnership which was in top form during the last session.”

Aaron Rodgers Signs $150m Contract as Green Bay Packers Retain Star Quarterback

If you are a Green Bay Packers fan, then the news that Aaron Rodgers has pledged himself to the Lambeau Field franchise for another three years will be music to your ears. The veteran quarterback has completed back-to-back NFL MVP award-winning seasons, and many may have feared that another offseason filled with ‘will-he, won’t he’ rumors were on the cards, but that’s now been neatly avoided.

38-year-old Rodgers has put pen to paper on a deal that will net him a massive $150m and makes him the best-paid player in the league. His first year will amount to $41m, the second is worth $59, and his third will work out at $49m. That may seem like a hefty sum, but Rodgers reportedly actually turned down a higher amount, knowing that doing so would free up money to improve the deals of other players (and possible newcomers to the Packers ranks).

The retention of Rodgers will, of course, offer a massive boost to Matt LaFleur’s team’s push for a Super Bowl title, and if you take a look at any odds comparison site, you’ll see that Green Bay are now at around the (+1100) mark, meaning that only the Buffalo Bills, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are ahead of them in the betting.

Rodgers has been in superb form over the past few seasons, showing that age hasn’t caught up with him, and there is certainly plenty more left in the tank. Next season will be his 18th with the Packers, and he has led his team to the playoffs in each of the past three campaigns. 

During that period, the Packers have a 39-6 record in regular-season action, which is a frightening level of consistency, and keeping such a hugely talented player at the team is something that has been widely applauded.

Green Bay general manager Brian Gutekunst remarked;

“We are very pleased to be able to come to an agreement with Aaron that keeps him in Green Bay,”

“His play on the field and leadership in our locker room remain vital in our pursuit of another Super Bowl title. The agreement also allows us to maintain and enhance what we feel is already a very competitive roster.”

The new deal for Rodgers has left back-up QB Jordan Love considering his options, and one imagines he may look to leave Green Bay in order to find game time elsewhere. 

On that point, comments from LaFleur suggest that they may not stand in his way, should he indeed look to find a new team;

“Jordan’s come a long way,” 

“I still think, with any young player that hasn’t gotten maybe the experience up to this point, there’s still a lot of room for growth. So I think it’s going to be an important offseason, that when he does come back, it’s making sure that his footwork is sharp, that he’s on the details of what we’re trying to accomplish on each and every play and all the concepts, really a mastery of the offense, and just the command that he has. I know he takes that to heart, and he takes it very personally, and he’ll do whatever he can to be his best.”

One thing is for sure. Trying to force your way from behind the shadow of such an accomplished player, such as Aaron Rodgers, isn’t something that can be easily achieved. Hence the likely need to move on rather than sit on the sidelines for another three years.
