    I don't think it's been included on the betting websites with them both being non-league teams after looking myself.

    Never mind. I reckon you could only bet on it if you went into a bookies.

    Who do you bet with?

    I've got:

    Billericay v Swansea at 1/3
    Carlisle v Grimsby at 2/5
    Lincoln v Forest at 4/7
    Oxford v Northwich at 2/5
    Stockport v Staines at 4/11
    Gainsborough v Hartlepool at 8/15
    Accrington v Huddersfield at 6/4
    Barrow v Bournemouth at 8/15
    Cheltenham v Brighton at 7/5
    Peterborough v Wrexham at 1/2
    Southend v Rochdale at 1/2

    £1 bet returns £177.32

    I'm going to put a proper bet on tomorrow in William Hill, this was just the last £1 in my Paddy Power account.

    I don't bet really I have the occasional flutter, but other than that.

    I usually pick a few sides though, and theres always one or two that let me down which is pretty much why I don't bother

    Betting on Forest is often a mistake.

    As is betting Leeds.

    Twice this season I've bet on Leeds, and they have failed to win both times.

    They cost me money last week!

    Talk to me, Goose.

    Fenerbache v PSV 1/1
    S.Prague v Arsenal 8/15
    Sporting v Roma 6/4
    Wrexham v Wycombe 6/5

    Oh well. Whenever they get a bit close to us, have a little flutter on them

    I'm pretty much avoiding Leeds like the plague, they're expected to win every match and the bookies are reflecting this in their odds, they look good to win most games but there is no value. Might as well bet on Rangers and Celtic crap odds and sure to lose when all your other results come in.

    Quite, seeing as they have won all but three of their league games.
    I thought 4/6 on them winning last night was pretty generous, just a shame some of the other stonewall games (Valencia? Baggies?) didn't come through.

    On a side note, I don't think I'll bet on Saturday, I had a quick look and I'm not convinced by many of the games.

    Default Betting for the weekend

    Ok so i went a tad over the top with this weekends accumulator but never mind.


    Hereford vs Leeds Leeds 8/13
    Billericay Town vs Swansea Swansea 2/7
    Watford vs Colchester Watford 1/2
    Altrincham vs Millwall Millwall 8/13
    Lincoln vs Nottingham Forest Nottingham Forest 4/7
    Liverpool vs Fulham Liverpool 1/3
    Chelsea vs Everton Chelsea 4/11
    Gainsborough vs Hartlepool Hartlepool 1/2
    Manchester Utd vs Blackburn Manchester Utd 4/11
    Tottenham vs Wigan Tottenham 4/7
    Reading vs Arsenal Arsenal 4/9
    Torquay vs Yeovil Yeovil 6/5
    Notts County vs Histon Notts County 8/13
    Bury vs Workington Bury 4/11
    Charlton vs Cardiff Charlton 8/11

    Bet : 2 pounds Return : 1117.60 pounds

    got carried away as the return kept rising, never a good idea

    and before anyone says, what a stupid bet, i do realise that, it won't be required

    There's bound to be one upset - so if it's Notts County who cause it, then you're laughing!

    You're two most likely results to lose.

    We should have dedicated Betting room. 18+ ofcourse.

    There just seem to be about 20 betting threads each week

    Default [STICKY] Betting Thread

    Someone suggested someone started one of these. I never start threads and have no idea what this one is about.

    I bet everyone thinks I am a f**king idiot.

    Tonight I had £2 on wins for Man Utd, Barca, Fenerbache, Inter, Sevilla, Arsenal...

    Would have returned £18.84! Bloody Gooners

    Would have paid out quite well if you'd put Arsenal to draw I imagine!

    There's always one that lets you down.

    Ofcourse, but I meant, the 'dead certs'.

    Last week I did three accumulators, 1 incorporated Swansea Gillingham so was out of the window, but the other two were close.

    One of them had:

    Man Utd/Arsenal Draw
    Aston Villa to beat Derby
    Forest to beat Tranmere
    Chelsea to beat Wigan
    Celtic to beat whoever they played
    Rangers to beat whoever they played

    Great, I hear you say, but I also had unbeaten Leeds to beat Carlisle

    Would've only won about £100, but was still plenty enough to annoy me!

    At the moment I'm preferring to go for smaller accys with more chance of winning a bit less money... get the ball rolling so to speak.

    If I do an accy of 8-10 games, I'll usually stick 5, 6, 7 or 8 folds on it too so there's usually some return at least.

    It's working well for me with the NFL.
