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?

Huesca yesterday were 4/1 at home to Gimnastic. Look at the league table to know that that's a crazy price. When it's too good to be true, it usually is so I ignored it. Right enough, a late away goal, a home red card and an away win. Bookies do make mistakes but not to that extent. The innocent explanation might be that someone punted massive on Gimnastic but whatever the reason, it stinks badly.

Today on the other hand, I'm getting offered 15% more than my stake as a cash out on Bayreuth. I got them at 10/11. They're now down to 1/2. It pays to study form.

Edit: Bizarre. Bet365 paid out my Coventry single. At full price! 2-0 with at least 25 minutes to go!

Bet365 have the promotion where they pay out on most football games if your team goes 2-0 up or has a two goal lead.

Biggest British flat race this weekend, The Derby, soft ground far from ideal but it suits two that I really like, the draw is an issue for the fav but if one horse could over come that then it is Saxon Warrior just not for me in a betting sense at that price with a couple of negatives against it.

You're going to have to be more certain please. I'm looking for something definite.

Justin Rose (14/1) and Ricky Fowler (18/1/) both worth a couple of quid at the US Open

I just put £20 on Kairat Almaty to win, returning £40. It had just started so couldn't get the double with the Ruskies. I'll update you all on my progress.

I have also thon big defender (al' cunt) to score and thon non-injured striker for Russia. Argentina to win the world cup, Jesus to be top scorer (because he's fuckin Jesus) and other assorted pish just to liven up an otherwise boring tournament. It won't be boring, it's just I have fatigue from last season still.

Had a decent go on Russia -1 today, Saudis the worst side in the tournament, doesn't help that a lot of their players had hardly played since December due to going to Spain to train and play for clubs there but they all failed to get selected due to being shite.

As for outright betting, Uruguay my main punt e/w now, it was going to be Spain with Uruguay as a saver but due to the managerial change at Spain I made a much smaller bet.

That not the sort of thing that repulses you..??  ;)

Took Spain some weeks ago to win, don't expect that to happen now.

Top scorer bets: Griezman, Jesus and Muller, was pretty delighted i got 33/1 for Muller.

It's not about escaping. It's about getting out with a bit of dignity.
If you're in it, don't fucking moan about it, make it yours and leave a mark

For those who like an outside punt you can get 16/1 on Uruguay to lift the cup.

Worth a fiver maybe.  ???
