It was looking a bit bad after Chelsea were 3-0 up after 22 minutes. We only had up to 4-0. Chelsea looked like they were going to run away with the game. Lucky for us they stopped at 4-0. Even more lucky was that I got the dutching wrong and the 4-0 result was actually paid out at 2.17.

That means we are £167 up this month.

Thank you Paddypower

I was just checking my account today as am going to have a cheeky go on their blackjack table. The crazy Irish bookmaker paid out on a bet I had last month.

I had a cheeky £20 that Gordon Brown would be gone between June and August. After a few days it looked really likely but then it suddenly all died down. I had written it off. So I check my account today and boom, there’s £45 in there. Looks like they did one of their publicity stunts and it’s backfired on them.

The reason I play blackjack at Paddypower is because they have a low roller table. You can bet 10p up to £5 so you don’t get carried away and start playing £100 a hand. Sign up here if you fancy it.

England to win

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

A new month. Should be a short one as there isn’t much to bet on now the Premiership has finished.

First bet of the month is England to beat Kazakhstan to nil. Price is 1.73 at Bluesqaure. Its about 1.5 everywhere else.

England to win is only 1.17 which is like printing money but it seems like everytime we try print money, we end up losing. 1.73 is a decent price.

Updated the total for the time this blog has been up. -£1213. Terrible, terrible, terrible.

End of Month Update

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

So Liverpool beat Madrid.  What a bunch of cocks.  Spanish football must be in a sorry state if Liverpool can go to the Bernabeu and win. £100 lost. Bank down to -£117.

Saturday we had a safe double of Everton and Chelsea. Price was 2.04. £100 staked. Both bets come in but needed a 90th minute goal from Lampard for the Chelsea win. Bank ended up at -£13. Small loss for the month.

Sunday we had Man U to win in 90 minutes. On paper this was a cert but it took penalties for them to win it. £100 loss. Bank for March stands at -£100.

Champions League

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

We broke our losing streak yesterday. Had Inter/ Man U draw at HT. Price was evens and £100 staked. Game ended 0-0 so obviously it was a draw at half time. Bank up to -£17.

At the weekend the scousers let us down. Tonight we are betting again Liverpool. Real Madrid have been going strong and Liverpool have fallen from grace. Only danger is that when Liverpool won the Champions League, they played shocking too in the league but turned up the style in Europe. £100 staked at 2.1. Come on Madrid!


Weekend Bets

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

On a good run at the moment.  Man U win 4-1.  Handicap cleared easily.  Next day we had the same bet but with Arsenal.  Price was 1.95.  They win 4-0.  Bank up to +£283.

This weekend pickings are slim in the Premiership.  We are going for a double of Arsenal/ Leeds.  Price is 2.07 at Boylesport.  £100 staked.  Price was 2.10 at Ladbrokes but I have barred myself from them so couldn’t get the best price.

This weekends bets

Saturday, January 17th, 2009

Swansea and Sheffield United do the business.  Bank up to +£242.  Was a bit worried when Sheff Utd went behind but they win 4-1.

This week, we are sticking with the winning formula of betting on whatever Pod says.  Midweek, he said, lets have Chelsea on the handicap.  I laughed and said no.  Chelsea come out 4-1 winners beating the handicap.  He just seems to be on a roll.  So this week is a Spurs/ Arsenal double.  Price is 2.88.  £100 staked.

Not over the moon about this bet.  Spurs are playing crap and Arsenal aren’t playing that well.  Personally I think the bet of the week is Blackburn to beat Newcastle at 2.1.

Just the one bet this weekend

Saturday, September 13th, 2008

Still nothing from the syndicate.  There still is nothing I fancy betting on.  I did fancy Man U but not enough to be on them. Pompy, Blackburn, Man City and Wigan were considered on the handicap but ultimately rejected.

Pod’s had a single bet on Pompy to beat Boro.  £70 at 2.1.  Maybe next week.

Mario Favourite to be Evicted from BB9 House

Friday, July 11th, 2008

All the money is for Mario to be the fourth housemate to be evicted on Friday night with bookies William Hill cutting him from 2/5 to 1/4 to go with Rebecca now out to 11/4. “Mario looks highly likely to go but Rebecca is not safe. All the big bets have been for Mario to go but female viewers are backing Rebecca to get the boot, although we doubt it is because they fancy Mario!” said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.

William Hill 4th Eviction Betting: 1/4 Mario, 11/4 Rebecca

William Hill Big Brother Winner: 7/4 Kathreya, 5/2 Darnell, 6/1 Luke, 12/1 Michael, 12/1 Dale, 16/1 Rex, 25/1 Rachel, 25/1 Lisa, 33/1 Sara, 33/1 Stuart., 40/1 Mohamed, 40/1 Maysoon, 50/1 Belinda, 50/1 Mario, 50/1 Rebecca.

Nothing Ventured

Friday, July 4th, 2008

I was too slow to get any money on tonights eviction at a decent price. It looks a dead cert that Jennifer will be going but I am not sure I fancy betting at 1.03 on Betfair, ok £2k on and I could be £60 up (less Betfair’s commission).

Oh well it’ll teach me for being slow to get the money on at the better odds.
