My £20 Four Games Both Teams To Score Coupon came up for me on Saturday!!!! A 91ST MINUTE CONSOLATION GOAL from Plymouth Argyle as they lost 5-1 at home to Peterborough United and then some 94TH MINUTE OWN GOAL BY NORTHAMPTON TOWN regarding their game with Colchester United finishing 2-1 has seen us bouncing off said living room walls.  Also had AFC Wimbledon 1 v 2 Sunderland and Havant & Waterlooville 1 v 1 Salford City.

Why one does love our beautiful game so much.  Returned £176.46 like.

Liking that SeaBass.

Looks like Sunderland and Peterborough could be worth a punt most weeks this season.

I'm fairly hopeful my Celebrity Big Brother bet will be up in a fortnight or so.  I usually do five or six people to make Final Night.  I've got £10 e/w (8/1), (1/4) odds 1, 2, 3 on Kirstie Alley and really hoping our £7.50 e/w (7/1), (1/4) odds 1, 2, 3 on Dan Osborne gives me at least 2nd and 3rd.  Also did Hardeep Singh Kohli (I've been on stage with him at The Maltings in Berwick-upon-Tweed), Nick Leeson, Gabby Allen and Jermaine Pennant. 

I think I'll lose Hardeep and Jermaine before Finale possibly even Gabby too.  I just do it for a laugh seeing as programme is our guilty pleasure.  Had winner 12 times from the nineteen series made.

Great punting Seabass. Dan 3rd. Think Ryan will beat Kirstie though.

I put on 4 x Scotland Kazakhstan doubles in-play before Scotland scored the first. Got 8-11 and 13/10 on the 4th bet.

Cashed them all out as soon as K scored to make 2.9/3. Who said cashing out was a mugs game?

Ive just got what he meant. Was too busy concentrating on my bacon roll to see he meant Scotland and Kazakhstan not Scotland v Kazakhstan. Duh

My Celebrity Big Brother bet 'came up' but was down on our month long punt.  With Dan finishing 3rd (7/1) and Kirstie 2nd (8/1) a quarter odds...1, 2, 3.  Ryan even before 'Punchgate' wasn't worth backing but did get 4th with Nick and Gabby 6th in Final from one's five picks on Launch Night.  Only Jermaine Pennant failed me.

I did and I still stand by it, bookies love it and love people using it hence why it's offered but never mind what I think, well done.
Just fuck off and die.

Noticed that Cardiff are 18/1 to win at HOME against Man City on Saturday.

Will you be having a nibble at that price then?

Are you being obstinate, impressionable or unintelligent?

Or maybe what you've been told can be substantiated by data? I don't know, I don't work in the industry.

At least try to explain how the cash out option works in the bookies favour and how a late Andorra equaliser would not have sunk my in-play doubles?

Think I'll keep my money in the pocket on this occasion TC but it's priced up like Cardiff are about three divisions lower.

It is indeed an unusually big price for any team in the EPL and as long odds as I can remember for a home win. But the chances of it happening are considerably more than 25/1 in the minds in the bookies and they don't get it wrong too often. It's the fools backing Citeh at 1/6 in their multi accas who feed them. Whilst it represents a fair price, there's tiny value in backing aways at such short odds because they don't always come in.

Dons are 23/25 for the home win tomorrow.  Not bad actually.

I reckon our form is about to improve.

Motherwell have bullied us too often too recently for me to touch the Dons at that price but let's hope you're right  :thumbsup:

I couldn't agree more. Every football match is a 3 horse race. The home, draw or away are the only 3 possibilities and therefore 2/1 per outcome are the mathematical possibilities before probabilities get factored in by the bookies. A home win price at less than half the possible outcomes isn't good value for Pittodrie today in my book unlike the likes of Peterhead, Portsmouth, Leeds and Cowdenbeath who are all less than evens for the home win. Even Arbroath and Bayern away at less odds than AFC today represent greater value for me but if it was all totally predictable, we would all skin the bookies every week and the only certainty every month and every season is that the bookies make major profits.
