Since you're on bet365, I strongly suggest you take Juventus at 1/6 today. I predict that their price will crash during the week as the big money and the pro punters lump on. Doubles with anything else. 1/6 is great value.

Too late!

I went for a Spurs and Sevilla double (tonight and Friday) at roughly evens. Plus £20 on Judd Trump in the snooker, who then proceeded to go quickly into a frame deficit after missing an easy blue. I thought I'd nip in before the odds reduced on potting the blue. Snooker is a stupid one, but it happened to be on whilst I was placing my other bet!

Hmmm... Sevilla who haven't won in their last 8 and Sociedad who won 4 of their last 5?

You can explain the rationale how that represents good value at 3/4 when it comes in.

No. No I can't.

So it turns out that last bet won. I just remembered about it today when speaking to a colleague about betting, which shows just how much effort I put into my betting.

(Un)Fortunately this means that I now have over £100 in my gambling account, and still nae idea. Given the price of high class whoors these days, I'd rather attempt to make a bit more before cashing out (or, more likely, losing it all). I was hoping to have a couple of hundred quid in there in time for the world cup so that I can make more spectacular losing bets throughout that tournament. Any suggestions on bets for the wikend?

I noticed Sevilla beat Sociedad, and then beat Real Madrid shortly after  :o

As you know, you have to make your own decisions on punting. It's the silly season now though as we always see some crazy results now that the bigger pictures have been decided e.g. Aberdeen winning at Celtic, Man C and PSG failing at heavily odds-on etc.

The last great value bet of the season for me was Atletico beating Marseille, including 10/3 HT FT in-play. I've already paid out the guys in our doubles syndicates including BB from here. The amount I paid the three of them was directly proportional to how long we've been doing it for as after all, my picks were the same in each.

I don't trust the World Cup for betting. Too many unexpected draws. Having said that, I do have some match bets on already (thought Russia at 1/3 was good value) and three of us are starting with a wee pot for the tournament just to see how we go.

A Celtic/Man U double must have a decent chance?
