29.07 - Fourfold comes home!

It was very pleasing to see my four-fold accumulator come off last night.  The Syndicate had some fortune in the early Europa League fixtures last year, and again it's worked out alright.

Some of the games were close, but a 3-1 home win for Dynamo, and then 3-2, 2-0 and 1-0 away wins for Stuttgart, Juve and Sporting brought home the bacon.

Current Pot: +£33.94

Think I'm going to have a few days off before betting again, as I can feel my 'luck' is due a sharp downwards turn...

28.07 - Celtic

No, don't be silly - I didn;t bet on Celtic to win away at Sporting Braga - I might be mental, but I'm not silly!  My money was on +2.5 goals, and sure enough it was: 3-0 to Braga on the night.  I got this one at 2.46 bringing home £2.94 profit.

Current Balance: +£24.09

Todays crazy bet is a footy multiple - backing Dynamo Bucharest to win at home, and Sporting Lisbon, Juve and Stuttgart all to win away in the Europa League qualifiers.

£2.40 goes on this @ 5.32...

27.07 - Essex

Todays tip is to put some wonga on Essex to beat Lancashire in the Friends Provident T20 Quarter Final.

£2.18 goes on @ 1.82

Another up and down week...

As the title suggests it's been a bit of a topsy turvey time since Fridays nice win took me up to +£2.26

The coin toss let me down, with Barney hammering James Wade (a good win for the D20 might I add).  I've then had some losses and wins, the last one being Nottinghamshire to beat Sussex when the odds were good.  They scored low, odds lengthened, bet placed, and did enough to overcome Sussex.  :)

Current pot: +£21.80

Tossing a coin

I have no idea what to put on today.  Having watched Taylor annihilate Kevin Painter yesterday I think he's going to win the World Matchplay, so will steer clear of his semi-final v Simon Whitlock.

With my attention now turned to Wade v Barney, and the odds of the two so close, I'm tossing a coin... Heads for Wade, Tails for Barney.  Here goes...

...Heads it is.  £2.23 goes on Wade @ 2.06

I'm off out for a free pint now (betting against mates is fun too!) so don't really care on the outcome of this one :)  Happy Drinking Everyone!

What a good day today.  The D20 tip of Molinari to win in a 3-way on the golf was a corker.  Two shots down at one point, he came back to finish on 1 under, while his competitors Fasth (+3) and Fowler (+4) were miles behind.

Current Balance: +£22.26

On a separate note, Mr. B also won the 4th series of tennis against Mr. C in a thrilling 4th set (7-5). This ties the number of championships won to 2-2.

Powering on...

Another good night for The Incremental, but more importantly it's nice to see the D20 stop the rot with a nice 5/4 win!

Tonights bet was on Phil Taylor to beat Steve Beaton with a handicap of -7.5

Did it come off?  You bet it did, as The Power creamed his opponent 13-4 - one legs more than required.  £2.00 at odds of 1.86 returned a nice £1.63

Slowly but surely, this pot is creeping up...

Current Balance: +£19.37

Up again

Wednesday saw a 92p rise, with bets on the Vandervoort v Wade encounter.  I hate not having Sky for the sports, so was playing blind - this helped me make the decision to hedge (thus only low profits).

The odds weren't great to start with, so even without laying there would only have been maybe £2-2.50 profit.  Anyhow, bets were under 10.5 180's and Vandervoort +4.5 legs.

Current pot: +£17.74

Every Little Helps

Mr. C, back in business over at the Daily 20, has today gone for Phil 'The Power' Taylor to beat Barrie Bates by more than 6.5 legs - getting good odds of 8/11.

I decided to go for leg betting, and stuck £2.00 on The Power to win leg 1.  I should have only got 1.23, but amazingly got 1.61.  Anyhow, he did it, and boosts my pot up a little to £16.82

I've also then went and stuck £2.00 on local hero, Paul Nicholson to beat Steve Beaton -2.5 legs... Probably going to be a silly bet, but what the hey...

Current Balance: £14.82
In Play: £2.00 @ 2.10

* I actually laid the Nicholson bet, which meant 0 risk.  Just as well as he got hammered 10-3!

Current Balance: £16.82

Surviving... Just!

It's been a mixed bag over the last week or so.

Lost on Germany v Spain (+2.5 goals), won on Germany to beat Uruguay, lost on Holland v Spain (+2.5 goals), won on Goosen (day 2 v Mickelson & Monty), lost on McIlroy (day 2, 71 or under), and won on Carlisle v Toon (+2.5 goals).

Altogether, that leaves me nursing £15.66 in the Incremental coffers.  Who knows what this week holds...

Orange Army

Correction from last post:  Betfair took 20p even though I didn't lose (but didn't win either).  +£13.80 balance.

Tonight's wager was on Uruguay v Holland to have more than 2.5 goals - and boy did it!  Unfortunately I only had £2.00 on it at 2.56, which returned £2.96.

Total Pot: +£16.76
