Didnt get a chance to post it during the weekend, but i had a nice small accum up on the soccer. I didnt work it out properly yet (its approx 4/1 i think, it was rangers-6/1, City 3/10, chelsea-3/10, liverpool-4/9, southampton 2/7 and norwich (2/5 I think). Just rang home to have the bet as I'm away, so a nice little extra to collect when i get back!!

I think i might do what Jackybacks doing with a 100pt bank, as its a way of diciplining my bets and knowing exactly where I'm standing. Probably do the same with the snooker as well. This 100pts idea seems damn fine.

Who makes up the odds and can you chose your own?
Who could be the big winner and who risked the most to win peanuts?
Does someone need to have a large amount in there account to match bets?
Where do Betfair make their money?
When should any of these guys lay/cash in their bets?
Anything esle i might find useful?

Thanks
There is a good Betfair guide over on the gambling and/or horse racing forum on boards. A copy and paste might be useful here.

Coming out with a small profit and pints covered i will take that every Sunday!!

I had 3 bets on the match
Arsenal win - meh
Rooney first goal - yeh
Arsenal score next goal @ 5/4 when it was 3-0 - yeh

There was a load of punters had the 3-1 correct score at 25/1, first time i have ever seen Utd fans willing Arsenal on to score and then jinxing Rooney when he missed a sitter in injury time.

Think bent first goal is worth a point at 9/2

Sunderland are poor at mo but Stoke are just as bad away (4 away goals this season)

He has probably got as many goals as the whole stoke team on 14 this season

Think andy reid is due a goal and may be worth a .5 of a point at 14/1

stoke have picked an attacking team (well attacking for them) so should hopefully mean a more open game

**Well that game sucked balls
Awful game, on reflection awful bet, there really are 10 teams bad enough to go down

Whitehead probably should have went in the first half, Sunderland had a really good call for a peno in the second, Bent takes the penos

Last edited by Elshambles; 02-02-10 at 02:47. Reason: *0-0, meant bent takes the penos :o

Had a lot on brest to win tonight ->
100 treble on brest/man city/roma to win -> long wait ahead
small side bet on brest to win 3/1. ->


I now have a trixie on everton(4/1)/pompey(4/1)/west ham(3/1) which returns 32.5/1.
Absolute gamble really but Everton > Liverpool at weekend imo. gotta hope for other two is all then haha


gotta love random gambling, if I get 0 back then I'm gonna go back to the grind but been really lucky lately with bets so why not try and get a big score

That trixie should return a lot more than that. A $1 (x4) stake returns $165
odds are 20,20,25,100 (decimal)

I honestly have no idea about odds in sports betting in these kind of things, just said 32.5/1 because my trixie is 25(100) and if they all come in I get 3250.

I now realise I should have wrote 31.5/1 anyway


Its on boyles so I just presumed it was right, probably me wording it wrong

Are you sure the odds were 4/1, 4/1 and 3/1 as you should get back almost 1k more
My guess is they were 2 @ 3/1 and only 1 @ 4/1

So am I brother, so am I

Point is learn about odds and stuff, you will make a lot more

I see people (NOT U) saying this is a good bet and that is a good bet at some awful prices

Its good to know about odds and the likes
thats all!

I'm backing Chelsea -2 tonight at 2/1. They were unlucky to only win 2-1 over Burnley and their two previous performances were of the same quality but with the goals.

Don't like -2 at all. Hull have had a fairly good home record. Chelsea have scored a lot less on the road then at the Bridge and Carlo has always been more tactically negative on his travels, so to win by 3 clear goals would be a big ask IMO.

I just like it, they played well during January, and in 3 out of 5 games they beat teams by more than 2 and they could easily have done it in all 5 games. Kalou, Mikel and Drogba are back in the squad now along with Essien who is injured, Drogba will want to make a statement and there is serious competition for places. I just think its all leading to a huge performance tonight.
