My main temptation is to bet over the 1/10 odds. You'll always fancy something a bit better and that's the inevitable downfall.

 

Where are folk finding the best bets to place? I'm on oddschecker but it's not the most intuitive.

 

My first attempt I was betting on everything, from rugby to football, cricket to tennis. Fell down on a football bet so decided to stay away from bets where a draw is a possible outcome.

 

My current run has been about 90% tennis with a little bit of cricket. Seems to be working so far (touchwood).

I'm thinking of staying away from football too. A 2 horse race with only 2 outcomes seems to be the best option.

 

5-4 Goffin. Come on.

 

Edit: Could've taken my stake and 50p profit there. Chanced it and it's 5-5. Sake.

 

5-6. He's chucked this.

Petrotrest equalise against Tom Tomsk. 1-1 :(

 

Just saw that. Still heavy favourites though. Fingers crossed. Looking for my next bet now. Tomsk - Petrotrest draw maybe :whistling:.

I'm shite at this :(

 

I'm learning now to bet on the second set. That way you can judge their first set performance and see if it's worth a punt.

 

Are you watching it? I've not got a bet on it but it's nail biting stuff!

 

Booooom!

On my 3rd attempt.

 

First got humped by a 1/6 tennis player I'd never heard of getting beat as I slept.

 

2nd was Man City draw no bet.

 

3rd attempt now going.

 

Decided to stick to in-play bets on sports that have only two outcomes.

That's what I'm doing. Too easy to get humped any other way.

Del Potro 4-0 up in the 3rd. In the bag. Had to re-start as I lost my last lot betting on some football team that were 2-0 up at half time. Finished 2-2.

Just put my winnings on Agnieszka Radwanska @ 2/9, who is now currently a break down in the first set. :angry:

 

And just broke back to save the set. :)

Was shitting myself a bit in the del potro match. Needed a tie breaker to save him. Anyway upto ?30.22 now.

 

Found a game in Romania tonight, Astra vs CSM, 4th vs 2nd bottom. Astra should win and have odds of 1.36 but I'm taking the draw no bet on them at 1.11 just incase

I'm guessing Del Potro won? No 3G and my sky bet is taking ages to load

 

Yeh he won 3:6 7:6 6:2 Was squeaky bum time at end of 2nd set though

Betfair told me it was 3-5 in the Dimitrov - Mathieu game so I lumped on Mathieu, loaded up the game to watch it and it's 5-5!

 

Feckin tie break.

Kinda missing the point... Bets of around 1/10. That fiver was probably gonna get you back around ?20

 

Anyway my last one came in, Astra to beat Acs Mu poli (Draw no bet) in Romania at 1.1 takes me upto ?33.58 after 12 bets. Gonna call it a night and look for stuff for tomorrow
