Albania, Czech, Serbia, ROI.     Only had a fiver which was going to be a tenner.

 

Was thinking about an over 3.5 line instead,     which is only 1 short.     

 

All wins welcome.

Not so sure about the 2nd one anymore as England don't have anything to play for now. Slim pickings in international week if you're also looking for value.

2 wins out of the last 3 bets is good enough for me (I tagged Man U onto AZ and Juve last Sunday). Onto next weekend 😁

Nice.  Scored a wee 11/2 odds 5-fold on the over 1.5s / 2.5s tonight.     Wasted a bit by covering on the last goal needed by ROI with 10 mins to go.

Lots of goals tonight.    Managed to harvest in a decent amount in various goals bets.     Especially the French leagues.     Fair few goals in the Eerste Divisie but I've abandoned that.   Drat.

I needed Lille to score for £395 ... just the 7 shots on target they had!

Sore one.   Unlucky.

 

My near miss was a 6 x 5fold perm over 2.5 goals in French Ligue 2 & National.    5 up and the 6th was a 0-0 (Villefranche).     Got a return but could have cleaned up on the cash-out if the other game had a couple of goals (depressed the cash-out value sitting at 0-0).

Few weeks ago I needed two goals for £138k ...

 

My correct scores:

 

Dortmund 3-2

Liverpool 2-0

Salzburg 4-1

Man City 3-1

Juventus 2-0

 

Actual results:

 

Dortmund 2-2

Liverpool 1-0

Salzburg 4-1

Man City 3-1

Juventus 2-0

 

Absolutely spewing. Salah missed a chance for Liverpool and Dortmund was 2-2 on 56 mins

Holy cow.    If only those were permed,   there would have been a decent cash-out value late on.     

 

Years ago,  a mate was 2 games away on one of those old skool sectional fixed odds coupons.    14 teams.   2 went down.    Man Utd and Rangers.     Max payout of £500,000.

I had 25p trebles so got about £150 back. Unfortunately the Liverpool game was the 12.30 ko if that had been the 5.30 instead of City the Cashout would have been crazy!

Did you have 4folds?     4 would have been approx £1500.

Yeah. If just Dortmund had scored I was getting £2800 back as 3-2 was 16/1 or 18/1.

 

Years ago Fabio Borini done me for £10k on a four fold. I had 1-1 in the Newcastle v Sunderland game. He scored from about 40 yards to make it 2-1 Sunderland. That was the second last game. Last game came in. £500 for the treble.

Unreal.    

 

I remember the days I did simple HDA lines.     Lost a few on the stroke of 5 o'clock.     I don't do them now after just about every one ending at 3.15 with a team 3-0 down.    

 

One of my more funny winners was a large stake treble of even looking matches that won with every team winning by at least 5 goals.   :D

 

First ever fixed odds won £125 for £1 on a line of four draws.     Try picking 4 draws now.

What a mad treble that was.

 

Kashiwa reysol won 13-1

Roma strolled it 3-0

And Copenhagen struggled and came back from behind in the last ten minutes to win 2-1. 

 

Decent end to the weekend

Nah, it all evens out over the course and 1 win in 3 is about average.

Good win tonight for you. Are you still backing Arsenal on the bottom bet after the weekend?

It was the only bet that wasn't on at the time of posting. I'm sticking with it though and I think the odds will be more like 7's as Man U have drifted massively since I priced it.

Already smashed the months target and got 5 trebles still to run so I'm happy however it turns out.

Only managed to put this on today and there's been a massive odds swing. Basically it won't win but it's been picked out so it has to go on.

That's an interesting one, you never know with Arsenal and Man U just now. 

In a btts accumulator I'd maybe put these games in though.

I've a feeling Arsenal will draw. They won 3-1 in Frankfurt though and a win seals top spot in the group for them.

Man U will also win the group if they beat Astana. Whilst Man U aren't scoring many goals Astana have lost 14 and scored a whole 1. Zero points.

 

Edit: unlikely it'll come in given the odds. Worth almost a grand if it does though.

Ok IronJambo, I’ll bite , surely with  hundreds of teams  over this weekend, you could’ve picked one or two with the same odds/chance rather than bet against your own team?

it’s something I’ll never get ,sorry

Not looking for a bite. I bet against West Ham as well as Hearts. I make good money betting and I don't make it because I bet on team's I like. 

 

If I gave a crap about your or anyone elses opinion I wouldn't post my bets.

I really don't know what you thought I might say. Betting for some people is a bit of fun backing your team. It's a source of income for me that's supplementary to my salary. It's my next car, a deposit/stamp duty on my next house, a holiday for the family.......

 

I won't ever apologise for my selections.

Are you putting on different types of bets other than the trebles you post in here? That Thursday coupon was a disaster, as you acknowledged in advance, but I like the look of all three this week.

It's all about value versus risk. If I've had a good month I'm happy enough to roll with more risk. Generally one win in 4 is good. 

5 out of nine trebles recorded on this month's balance sheet have won which is great, but with 3 bets left in the month I've looked to try and consolidate the month with some lower risk bets. Every bet I've placed this month has been posted on here and I'm over £1200 up.

Hopefully you’ve blessed Hearts with the same luck that you bestowed upon West Ham! Thought that top bet was a banker.

Do coaching staff count towards number of cards bets too or only players? Reason I ask is that a guy at my work had over 1.5 cards each in the Hibs game last night and I notice Rangers had 1 yellow (Goldson) but also had a coach red carded after the Porteous incident.
