End of the month – part 2

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

Bank was supposed to be +£118 but another foolish bet has cost us. We had Rotherham +0.25 to beat Swansea at 2.04 £118 staked. They lost 2-1 Bank now stands at +£0

Last bet of the month. Arsenal -0.25 at 2.15. £100 staked. Currently 0-0 64th minute. Arsenal will be blacklisted if they don’t win.

End of the month

Tuesday, February 27th, 2007

So Tottenham win, bank was briefly up to +£218 but then sat in the pub we decided to go with Valencia to beat Gimnastic. Gimnastic score in injury time to earn a 1-1 draw. £100 staked, £100 lost. Bank now at +£118. So thats the profit for the month. Not bad but not too good either.

Weekend Bets

Sunday, February 25th, 2007

Bank started off at -£24 after a Man U win and an Inter Milan draw.

Yesterday’s bet was Wolves to beat Leads at 1.76 (before commission).  Wolves win 1-0 so bank increases by £72.

Todays bet is Tottenham to beat Bolton at 2.2.  £100 staked.  Tottenham have hit a bit of form recently so should be able to dispose of Bolton with the home advantage factored in too.

Champions League bet Part 2

Tuesday, February 20th, 2007

We couldn’t resist having Man U to beat Lille. Man u haven’t had the best of times away from home this season. Lille are one of the poorest teams still left though so Man U should be able to dispose of them no problem.

£100 Man U to win. As an extra bonus betdirect screwed up their pricing. We managed to get £50 on at even on the Asian Handicap +0. I rang up and doubled checked this price. Their customer care assured me that it was right. The lady even talked to the traders and they said yes it was OK.


Nice eh?

Champions League bet

Sunday, February 18th, 2007

Not a good weekend.  Arsenal are now blacklisted as a team to bet on.  Just glad that Man U failed to win too.  Anyway, months profit is now -£24.

Next bet is Inter Milan to beat Valencia  on the Asian Handicap at 1.825.  £100 staked.  Inter are flying in Serie A.  Valencia aren’t too good away from home.  Inter also have Crespo who I still remember fondly when he scored a 93rd minute winner against Wigan last season.

The man has only gone and won it.

FA Cup Bets

Friday, February 16th, 2007

Another predictable bet for this week. The big 3 are all at home again. Chelsea should batter Norwich. With the way Arsenal played on Wednesday they should be able to beat Blackburn. Man U is slightly risky. The league encounter ended 3-2 to Man U but they were hanging on towards the end.

At 2. 22 before commission on betfair though its the bet of the weekend. £100 staked.

Weekend bets

Sunday, February 11th, 2007

Well, the bet of the weekend for me is the “Big 3” all to win.  All are playing at home. Man U have Charlton who are relegation candidates, Arsenal have Wigan who aren’t doing much better. Chelsea have Middlesbrough which is ever so slightly risky. 1.93 a blue square.  £100 staked. 

Man U and Chelsea breezed their matches.  Arsenal were very lucky.  Still, a win is a win.  profit £93, monthly total + £76.   

First Post – the story so far

Sunday, February 11th, 2007

A slightly disappointing month so far. Last weeks bets were Chelsea/ Liverpool double £100 at 2.1 at Ladbrokes. Liverpool drew 0-0 at home to Everton. Chelsea won 1-0 away to Charlton. So not a good start.

We made most of this back on Sunday. Man U to beat Spurs was an absolute steal. £100 at 1.83.

Profit loss, so far, £17 loss.
