Bet 4

Quick update to post the HT bet today (been working on a kitchen, don't ask...).  This was picked earlier, before Charlotte went to bed, so I was expecting to be a bit late to make the +0.5 goals market.

Bet 04: £17.03 @ 1/8 on Celtic v Partick

Now just watch it remain goal-less lol


Update... won!
Returned £19.16

Bets 2 & 3

Ok, so a few days have now passed since me and Charlotte restarted this, and thats probably a good thing.  Too often in the past I've chased loads of bets in a day, putting on silly teams just cos it's in play and lost.  This time round I feel a little more calm, and with Charlottes help, a little more patient.

As such, Charlotte picked Saturdays game on Friday. That was Ipswich v Charlton.  Again, the aim was to go over 0.5 goals, which I didn't remember until about 20 mins in.  In the end, the goal was scored in the 94th minute so we got lucky,  but in this game any win is a win.

Bet 02: £11.82 @ 1/5 - returned £14.19

Our third bet, Charlotte wanted Newcastle which again I got at good odds on the over 0.5 goals, but the downside here is it was scored by Burnley.

Bet 03: £14.19 @ 1/5 - returned £17.03

In other news, the BTTS on Sat didn't quite go to plan, 9 out of the 10 sides scored, so we've tried again tonight but on 3 games, so only odds of around 6/1. Charlotte picked again.  Wish us luck!

Starting Again!

Well, hello there! It has been a while!  Haven't recorded anything for ages, as while betting hasn't ceased completely, it's taken a bit of a back seat to being a daddy :-)

Until today. I've been thinking about starting something again for a while, and today decided 'what the heck'.  Being a responsible dad though, Charlotte has helped me (she picked the teams).

So I'm gonna run this on two fronts.
1. Another 10to10k challenge
2. Both Teams To Score Bingo

The 10to10k got off to a flyer, with Exeter scoring against Accrington Stanley within minutes of Charlotte picking.

Bet 01: £10 @ 2/11- returned £11.82

The BTTS is for us to have a bit of fun (and keep Charlotte occupied when Final Score is on). I don't expect this one to do so well... 5 games, 10 goals needed...

Bet 01: £1 @ 15.11 - 15:00 Saturday

Thanks for reading, and I'll update again tomorrow.
