Well I'd rather divide them into two bets. One which has more chances of winning and the second one which is more of a gamble.

Perhaps like this :

1.Bet:

Juventus
Porto
Arsenal
(Chelsea)

2.Bet:

Lyon
Manu
Marseille


Of course the odds won't be that high but there is a higher chance that you will win one of these bets because it is rather unlikely that your 7 fold comes in.


Will post my bets later / tomorrow as I haven't had a look at the games and the line ups or injuries.

Re: Football (soccer) betting thread

I don't think that CSKA are all that bad as an outside bet at 8.50 (can probably find better value is you shop around).

Rio, Vidic, Giggs and Park are all out and Berbatov and Rooney are both doubts. The united second string is by no means bad, but with Park and Rooney not playing, United lose their two hardest workers.

Then there's the Chelsea match to consider..

Agreed ... this is the game that jumped out at me when looking at the CL card ...

Backing Lyon @ 2.56
also Lay Rangers +0.5 @ 2.02

Re: Football (soccer) betting thread

Not sure how valid a bet Lyon was, given that they also had a series of injuries.

That said, Liverpool could really be on the ropes after still not converting tonight so may be worth looking into betting against them in their next few fixtures especially as carragher will be suspended in the EPL.

Re: Football (soccer) betting thread

Deportivo - Atletico de Madrid feel like a trap to anyone else? At Pinnacle they have Depor at 2.55. Atletico de Madrid have a talented squad but have been **** this season and Depor have looked great. I think Deportivo win this over half the time so even 2.4 or so from the high-overround books I have access to here seems like an absurd line.

Betfair has Deportivo at 2.58 so I feel like I'm missing something and falling into a trap.

Re: Football (soccer) betting thread

That line does look too good to be true ... have you looked at injuries/suspensions? One thing I notice taking a quick look at this game is that Atletico has won the last 5 between the two teams ...

Athletico have a new manager, the quality is already there. They were actually pretty impressive against Chelsea. I'd avoid personally but if you must, then Deportivo home price is solid value.

Hi man thanks 4 reply. I'm interested mainly in the premiership (england), but also all the major european leagues if there is value to be had. Looking to build a roll on betfair, after recently 3am drunk steaming it off playing poker with my sports roll.

P.S. Sunderland are my team and I try not to bet on them (excpect d. bent 1st goalscorer every week) as i get far too emotional lol.
