Bet # 9

Tonight, I'm going to put my faith in the Toon again.  They are at home versus QPR in the championship.  After Saturdays 4-0 thrashing of Roy Keanes lot, and with West Brom and Boro losing last night, a win will see us go 5 points clear at the top of league.

At odds of 4/6 this is ok, but to top it up, I'm going to add Chelski into the mix - away at Apoel Nicosia.  At odds of 3/10, this will bring the total odds to 1.16, returning £23.84 if successful.

Total Pot 30/9 : £204.34

Bing! Bisto! Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

A cracking night in Europe for the Syndicate... oh wait, we never put it on!  Ah well, never mind.  Just a cracking night for me instead.

All four chosen teams won, bringing home £58.29 (profit of £42.07).  This helps me cross the £200 marker!

Results were 2-0, 2-0, 4-0 and 4-1 (see earlier post for selections).

Total Pot 27/9 : £162.27
Bet # 8 : +£42.07

The Syndicate Bottle Bet

We have had a big discussion today for The Syndicate, as we are slightly behind target on our 1/3 per bet.  Anyhow, to cut a long story short, we couldn't agree on a bet to put on, so we ain't bothering.

I however will go for it here, and stick on my 10% on the four we decided not to go for.

Arsenal at home to Olympiakos @ 2/9
Barca at home to Dynamo Kiev @ 1/10
Lyon away at Debrecen @ 2/5
Sevilla away at Rangers @ 10/11

Totally, it works out at just over 2.5/1

It's a wash-out!

The heavens opened, the rain came down, and India never even got to bat...  The game was declared a draw so the bet has been voided.

Total Pot 28/9 : £162.27
Bet # 7 : +/-£0.00
Pot Remaining : £162.27

Bet # 7

I want to stay away from the Man City game tonight, as there is too much focus on it and I don't want to jinx the D20, so I'm going to go for the cricket.  The Aussies are currently 143/2 and have decent odds of 4/9.

Bet # 7 - Australia to beat India £16.22 @ 4/9

Juca'n count on me!

The only goal of the game came within the first ten minutes, and the bet was won.  I'm not going to try and make up more stats, cos to be honest I never watched the game.  Brazilian Juca was the scorer - Mr. C might be impressed with my headline... or maybe not!

Total Pot 27/9 : £141.18
Bet # 6 : +£21.09
Pot Remaining : £162.27

*I've had to update a few of the totals, as I mistakenly undersold myself by about 60p on Bet 4 - totals have been corrected but the bets would not be exactly 10% (coming in slightly lower)

Bet # 6

Tonight sees some action in Spains Primera Liga, where Deportiva La Coruna take on Villarreal.

I'm going to take the home side to come out on top in this encounter, again @ 6/4.

Get In There Gunters!

Chris Gunters scored late into first half injury time with the only goal of the game to seal a win for Notts Forrest, and a win for the incremental.

Total Pot 27/9 : £122.85
Bet # 5 : +£18.33
Pot Remaining : £141.18

Bet # 5

Plymouth are rooted to the bottom of the Championship at present, and Notts Forrest aren't doing much better in 19th.  Forrest have drawn all of their away matches so far this season, so will be looking to get a scalp here.

Nots Forrest to win @ 6/4

Nolan Hat-Trick - Who'd have believed it...

Hat-trick hero Kevin Nolan, supported by Ryan Tayor, along with the whole Toon squad who played excellently tonight.

Total Pot 26/9 : £108.00
Bet # 4 : +£14.85
Pot Remaining : £122.85

Bet # 4

Well I was going to stay away from this one, but after seeing Inverness come from 3-0 down, to pull back 2 and still lose 3-2, I feel like it's going to be a good one for the Toon tonight against Ipswich.

With Boro drawing and West Brom getting beat at home, the Geordies can go back to the top with a win at Ipswich today.  As I'll be watching with a few bottles of jacques, I might as well make it interesting.

Bet is Newcastle to win @ 11/8

Bet # 3

I'm out all day tomorrow so have had to look at the fixtures tonight instead.  I fancy a few teams who I wouldn't normally touch with a barge pole...  Brum to beat Bolton, a sneaky feeling that MK Dons will pip Leeds, Hartlepool to beat Walsall, and Yeovil to do one over Brentford.  But, I'm going to go for my birth town team, Inverness CT to beat Partick Thistle at home.  At 11/10 this is slightly better than evens, but more importantly, it could potentially put Inverness up to third in the table.

Total Pot 26/9 : £120.00

Crewe Alexandra, Who Are They?

A fantastic start to the match meant that Crewe were never really in this game, Accrington scoring two goals within the first 6 minutes.  Crewe pulled one back just before half time, but a second early goal in the second half for Grant put the game beyond the visitors, with Procter adding a fourth and Symes a fifth. Crewe then pulled another two back before the final whistle.  5-3 the final score.

Total Pot 25/9 : £100.00
Bet # 2 : +£20.00
Pot Remaining : £120.00

* I must have got ahead of myself big style as this is the third time I've had to amend this entry as I updated it initially thinking the game was over at 3-1!

Bet # 2

Todays wager goes to the Coca Cola league two, where Accrington Stanley play Crewe.  It's a mid table clash with only 3 points seperating the two teams.

Rightly or wrongly, I'm going for a home win @ 2/1.

Hong Kong Drew-ey

The match between Higgins and Fu last night ended up in a 3-all draw.  Thus the bet was voided - I'm not complaining, as it means after the first bet I'm not down as usual...

Bet # 1 - Higgins to Fu One Over...

The first bet goes on John Higgins to beat Marco Fu in the Premier League Snooker.  At odds of 1/2 the bookies also expect the Wizard of Wishaw to pip Hong Kong Fuey in this encounter.

Starting Again

Well I'm starting it all again.  This time I mean business - no silly bets, no "on the spot" in-play bets.

Only calculated ones.  The wager will be 10% of the current pot total, so the more I win, the more I bet.  And also the more I lose, the less I bet.  Let's hope this time I can get some kind of system going...

Pot at 24/9 : £100.00
