football bets

Postby Quiffy » Sat Oct 01, 2011 10:18 am

one of the few reasons to look at waccoe is to nick some inspiration for the little daft bets i have to add a bit of interest to otherwise irrelevant football matches. i'm sure ballers probably have some smarter tips, if so stick them here..

anyway today's waste of money is a 6fold accumulator that returns at 212/1. :drunk:
Man City -1 goal @ 23/20
Wolves v Newcastle - Newcastle @ 15/8
Reading v Middlesbrough - Middlesbrough @ 15/8
Millwall v Burnley - Millwall @ 23/20
Leyton Orient v Preston - Preston @ EVS
Exeter v Oldham - Oldham @ 9/5

Milwall to beat Burnley is a long shot I reckon.

Good luck.

For what it's worth (£5 actually) my five-fold is

1. Lay West Ham v Palace (i.e West Ham won't win )
2. Oxford
3.Blackpool
4.Bristol Rovers
5. Barnsley

Only realised recently that you could lay teams on an accumulator.

Pays £134

Something else is happening in Leicester today and the local populace can't cope with two batches of excitement in one day.

My £5 8 fold for what it's worth (£197)

Liverpool,Man U,Man Citeh,Charlton,Hudds,Orient,Kilmarnock,AFC Wimblendon

Occasionally there are a few mad prices around on the betting exchanges e.g a few weeks ago you could still get Darius Henderson to be top scorer in the championship at 100/1 (with £15 available) seemed silly not to really.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Scum, Citeh, Ipswich, Huddersfield, Sheff W, Rangers.

£4 pays about £125 I thunk.Pretty sure one of the so called big guns will let me down, probably Chelsea

6/1 Leicester
8/1 Wolves
8/1 Bolton

10/1 Birmingham

11/1 Cardiff

12/1 Leeds

14/1 Brighton

16/1 Blackpool

16/1 Blackburn

16/1 Middlesbrough




12/1 looks good with hills-that is all based on us getting new investment of course, i think our odds will tumble the moment new ownership is confirmed.

hooray for just wasting a tenner.

If we're 6th favourites for the title, there must be a decent set of odds on us going down.

and this year's odds...which show that they think we're a better bet this season at 12/1/ compared to 16/1. :scratch:

Yeah, dunno. Might Wolves be strong? Our chances are obviously negligible. But there'll always be more than a few chumps who can't resist a bet.

Can get 14/1 on us at a few bookies. 5/1 for promotion with William Hill.

Wolves nearly 2/1 to beat us on the opening day. Think that's a decent bet, despite the change of manager there. Can't see them flogging too many of their main players, especially not on the first day of the season - maybe later in August though.

i've been persevering with my daft accumulators and nearaly pulled off a 200/1 6fold last week. i just needed wigan to equalise against west brom but they couldn't. so with a tad more confidence i'm sticking forward this week's waste of money. only a 5fold..
reading vs everton - draw
newcastel vs sawnsea - draw
watford to beat wolves
burnley to lose to charlton
colchester to lose to bury [it seems blackwell's honeymoon's still going]

275/1 for all five. probably bollocks but it'll help add interest to the afternoon.

Started dropping in a fair chunk of Both Teams to Score and Over 1.5/2.5 goal selections into my accumulators. Adds a new dimension to the old multiple bet in that, mostly, it keeps you in the hunt a lot longer than outright selections - which invariably get fucked up by a daft scorelines early on in the piece.

Got a couple up in Europe and the Internationals, but nothing domestic yet. Hoping to change that today.

E.g, one of my accas today:
Man C
Leicester
Crawley
QPR v Saints Both teams to score
Cardiff v Hull BTTS
Shrewsbury v Crewe BTTS
Palace v Derby over 1.5 goals
Dumbarton v Morton over 2.5 goals
Raith v Dunfermiline over 1.5 goals

About 30/1 that lot

just seen derby have scored, which is nudging yours a bit nearer.

55 minutes in and reading have equalised so 3 of my 5 are heading in the right direction, just leaving bury to score and charlton to get something against burnley who are down to 10 men. :thumbl:

bah, now need newcastle to equalise, but that's better than swansea having to equalise.
