Just reactivated my Betvictor account because - Kemar Roofe ( our very own Thierry Henry ) is an astonishing 33/1 to be championship top scorer. Have just bet £15 each way. EW 1/4 1,2,3,4 :shock: Possible returns £648.75. and £108.75 if my maths is correct which it probably isn't.

Just seen 12/1 for at least one goal in every leeds match this season on #yourodds (future) section of the willhill site. Worth a couple of quid I thought.

..and the stupid optimist in me has just stuck £3 on us to win the premiership next season at 250/1 and £3 on a top 3 finish at 50/1. Both odds seem a bit mean. Obviously bielsa's got the bookies sweating.

And i'm actually sober. :lol:

250/1???? they saw you coming, m8. e.g. you can get 1000/1 on watford winning this year's and: (a) they're dead certs to be competing in it; (b) they so far have 9pts from 3 games.

your top 3 odds are arguably even more wtf. you can get 23/5 on arsenal doing the same this season.

Yeah cant disagree, but there's something about betting on leeds that feels like cosmic support for the team. Its a statement of faith rather than a logical decision.

On one level its stupid, on another it feels good. I'm happier in the less logical realm.

Had cardiff to lose and norwich to lose in a 376/1 treble.with gimsby who were level on 85 minutes.

A well spent quid, especially with warnock eating out the dogs bowl.

I put these bets on early with Betvictor. Both are now short price favorites, be a few quid if they win but foolishly I never put them both in a double.

put a cheeky £10 accy on the 8 FA cup matches. No shocks in any of the results so far and they're offering me circa £600 to cash out against the £2600 or so on offer if scum beat chelsea.
What a fucking dilemma. I don't remember picking them but whatever fairy dust was sprinkled on the bet maybe I just let it roll. But then I'd want them to win. Meh still want chelsea to lose.
Gonna sleep on it and probably cash half in. Apologies to kenny for pinching the 'look at me in the money' routine :arrow:
Edit - just cashed out for 2.4k - I can go back to not giving a fuck about this fucking game :P
The only thing we knew for sure about Henry Porter was that his name wasn't Henry Porter.

You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Yep, no surprise at Villa being favourites.

If I was a neutral I'd have a bit of 9/2 for Derby.

There's hardly anything between us and Villa in the betting.

As we all know it's a lottery anyway.
7/4 favourite in a four horse race say's it all.
