Anyone into racing ? Cheltenham only a week and a half away. Pretty good preview of the races in the above link. Have the week off as a study week which is pretty sweet. Most of it will be spent in boylesports.
God I'm having a mare... Started the day well with an each way bet on Teaforthree, wasn't going to back him but he's my only winner so far. Only got 25 back which is well gone at this stage - my double went belly up. The ground didn't suit Grands Crus unfortunately. Sizing Europe would have won had it not been for the cock up by the officials. Had Balgarry in the Coral Cup aswell, was leading until the hill but didn't have the stamina to last.
It's understandable if you don't want to take tips from me after the first two days, but Rubi Light has a great chance tomorrow and should have decent odds.
Ha didn't see that post Se7en, easyodds is a good website as it gives you odds from all the bookmakers.
I usually just throw a fiver here and there aswell - I mostly do football accumulators. I've won a lot on it in the past but I mainly do it when there are internationals as they are much easier to predict. Tennis is actually a good market for betting also. Bookies give crazy odds on outsiders so it's easy to pick money up on each way betting in ATP events.
Put a few bets on this week with Cheltenham, always got money on a football accumulator. Got money on What A Friend and Diamond Harry for the Gold Cup, both each way. I'm not a big better so only put a few quid on, no point going for the favourites. One of the races on the first day only had 6 horses running so I put money on the outsider each way, didn't come in but worth a dabble.
Have a 20 team accumulator on this weekend. Won with 13 teams before but they were all hot favourites. IF I won off this accumulator I'd get over 5 grand back. Very long shot but sure anyway.
Have the usual 7 fold accumulator on aswell. Ulster already won and Leicester are cruising. Have Ospreys, Celtic, Ajax, Barca and Madrid also. Should all win. Won't get much back on that bet but it all builds up.
After Mondays performance probably not ha. I think we will try and rack up a cricket score, if Rooney and Valencia are firing on all cylinders then anythings possible. Would probably back them to get 1 though if we really go for it.
Ourselves and Chelsea are both 9/4 with sky bet to sign Modric. Madrid 5/1... I know bookies are reading the same as us but anyway. Michael Owen is 5/1 on to join Stoke. Plenty of strikers there already though. Just a couple of other bets I've noticed the price of.. Howard Webb is 12/1 to ref the final at the Euro's. Also worth looking at is the player of the tournament odds which are sky high. Iniesta is 16/1, Robben 25/1...
Just checking there, United to win the league and Rooney to finish top scorer is currently priced at 14/1. Pretty good price. Will be interesting to see what a United/Van Persie double will be valued at.
6 beans on Belgium, Austria, Germany, Turkey, Holland, Norway, Slovakia, England, France, Spain and Argentina all to win tomorrow night. All hot favourites but I'd get around 50-60 back if they all come in.
Just placed my first accumulator: Leicester to win at Brighton, draw between West Brom & Arsenal, Villa to beat Stoke, Hartlepool to beat Bury (didn't realise I placed a bet on this game, but luckily they are both in relegation zone), Middlesbrough to beat Hull and Wolves to beat Bolton.
Bit of fun and will make watching latest scores more interesting. I've only placed a 15p bet and if lucky will win £200 in return.
