Re: Football (soccer) betting thread

Pretty bad weekend for me. My only 'win' came from a cancelled bet. The funny thing is that I was eyeing up the lines of both "Everton to score @1.80" and "Birmingham vs Man United DRAW @3.50", but decided the lines I picked were 'safer' lol. Oh well.

Anyways:

11/01 games:

Man City vs Blackburn @1.40
I had placed this back on the weekend which is why the price is pretty bad compared to today. I thought it would go down so I got on it early. Nevermind.

Double @1.87
Man City vs Blackburn
Ivory Coast vs Burkina Faso

Read on another forum that someone put $8k on Angola at 1.01 when they were 4-0 up with 78mins gone. Must've been the worst 12minutes of his life!

I had a poor weekend also. though I did make a little back with a few in-play bets. At Halftime I backed the draw in the Udin/Lazio & Fior/Bari games at around 2.7 and hit on one and also made a little in the Villareal game. Also made a few units laying CS's though having said that...just for a laugh a while back I started out with 1 unit laying highpriced(30-100) CS's going all-in each time went bust on that one in the WBA-NF game laying 1-3 after hitting 83 in a row. I've started giving it another shot though I think I might take out %10 of the profit or something like that each time...

Re: Football (soccer) betting thread

Wow I thought it was at the half or something, 78 mins is pretty sick. Would have to be a +EV bet you would think, although with the possibility of rigged games who knows. In any case, if you can't take the variance, don't make the bet.

Re: Football (soccer) betting thread

I read somewhere that the African CoN usually has a lot of low scoring games. Maybe it's time for another look at the unders market? Going to try to find some data for previous years...

I appear to have read a load of rubbish lol. No trend or indication of a lack of goals in CoN games.

This game wasn't fixed at all, you know there are certain patterns when it comes to fixed games and this game doesn't fit any criteria or anything.
Great bet, although 1.01 seems VERY big at 4-0, i find it more probably he bet it at 3-0 but that story doesn't sound as impressive.

Re: Football (soccer) betting thread

The lone SPL game looks a low scorer. Both teams are reasonably solid in def and have little attacking threat.
my picks:
StMirren V Aberdeen DRAW @ 3.4
<2.5gls @ 1.57
dutched 0-0,0-1,1-0,1-1

Re: Football (soccer) betting thread

Darn bet my team 2day (i kno fan monniez ) they were a huge dog in a pre league international friendly game. They dominated the first half and scored 1:0, 2nd half they had a HUGE substitution of almost the whole team (all youngsters on the field now) they messed up and i lost my potential 200$
Hate life

Was a good sweat anyways.

Any thoughts on 2morrows games?

Regards

Re: Football (soccer) betting thread

In the Liv/Reading game I was thinking bout backing >4.5gls @ 4.6 and laying the any unq scoreline @ 3.85. This will give a profit for all scores barring 4-0 and 0-4 and we hit the jackpot if score is 3-2 or 2-3. Don't have time to do the exact calcs though since the game starts shortly and i'm busy with other stuff so just went for the over 3.5gls @ 2.58

also got <2.5 Newc/Plymouth @ 2

Re: Football (soccer) betting thread

I hit my dodgy little accumulator for today, but I'm still awaiting a refund on a bet made for the Tours vs Istres game that got postponed. Dont understand why they're keeping the stake for so long - maybe it's backed up admin work because of so many postponements?
