If you were on the edge of your seat during last night's Bledisloe clash, it was worse for one punter, who faced an especially nervous wait after the Wallabies' scorching start.

The person had laid a $50,000 bet on the All Blacks to beat the Wallabies in the clash - most probably encouraged by last weekend's 54-34 win.

The bet was laid at odds of $1.04.

By the end the epic clash the punter had earned a modest payday for his wager but the unpredictable and explosive 35-29 encounter was reflected in a betting rollercoaster with live odds see-sawing throughout the entire match.


TAB spokesman Mark Stafford said live betting prices for the Wallabies swung all over the place depending on the fortune of the team.

Odds shortened within the first few minutes after Israel Folau's opening runaway try nearly halving odds from $9 to just over $5.

The rollercoaster continued to the end while the ABs remained virtually unchanged for the win.

While the largest number of unsuccessful bets were placed for an AB win with a 13-point margin or greater, one punter lost big after placing $10,000 on the first scoring play to be a kick.

They placed the bet at odds of $1.62, but lost out after the Wallabies opened scoring with a try.
