Betting update

Monday, December 28th, 2009

Been very slack with the updates. Looks like this month is going to end up with a loss.

So last week, we had,

West Ham vs Chelsea over 2.5 goals. Ended up 1-1.

Bank down to -£195.

Boxing day

Newcastle to beat Wednesday 1.72
Burnley to beat Bolton 2.37
Man City -1 on the Asian 1.79
Wigan Bolton unders. 1.7

First 2 lost. Ended up £51 down on the day. Bank at -£246.

Todays bets were, Everton -1, 2.1 and Man City win at evens. Everton win 2-0. Man City are 1-0 up. Fingers crossed, we’ll be only down £36 this month.

Good day at the office

Saturday, December 19th, 2009

Today, Pod identifed 3 bets. Portsmouth +1 on the Asian Handicap, Villa – 1 and Man City overs.

I didn’t get up early enough to put the Portsmouth bet on. Gutted as that would have come in at evens. We had the other 2. Villa was evens and City overs was 1.75.

Villa win 1-0 and so bet is a push. Man City ended up 4-3. It was 2-1 after about 17 minutes so bet won easily.

Bank now at -£95. Very hopeful of making a profit this month.

On my personal bets, I’ve had a stonker of a weekend. Had Villa to win to nil at 6/4, £100 and Fulham at 6/1 also £100. Both won. £750 up on the day. Clawed back all my losses from last weekend and more.

Update, many bets, much loss

Damn Mark Hughes and Man City

Saturday, December 5th, 2009

Bad start to the month. Only one bet today. It was Cheslea to beat City. Started well enough with an early own goal against City. Somehow City managed to score 2 and win 2-1. £100 lost. Bank at -£100.

I think Man City are going to get put on the blacklisted teams. Everytime we seem to bet on a Man City game it appears to lose. Usually we are betting on them to win but this time they screwed us over. Chelsea are a bit rubbish too. The like of Hull, Burnley and Fulham all got draws at City and the so called champions elect get beat.

I don’t think we’ll be having anything tomorrow. I fancy Spurs strongly but Pod fancies Everton.
