Football betting
A couple of months back I opened a bet365 account and deposited £100. I have now doubled my account, so will withdraw my original 100 and see what I can accumulate.
Anyone else dabble?
Today Everton are 6/1 to beat Man city which is tempting and villa also have a chance against Chelsea at 15/4. Tips anyone ?

Re: Football betting
Football betting is very difficult to make a lot of money on given the many variables that could occur. My most successful time was a couple of years ago when Accrington won League 2, and Plymouth went from bottom of League 1 at Christmas to top 6 challengers. I went from betting site to betting site taking the max into offers and generally did the lot on a win double, or added a 3rd team to make it a treble. I won £3000 over a 2 month period, I stopped when it got to the point when I was having to bet almost £500 to release the bonus win (I got cocky and stopped reading small print).

Having to put down that much made me feel sick (I'm generally a £5 acca on a Saturday if West Ham aren't the 3pm) and didn't enjoy the win at all, so stopped it at that. That was quite lucky in itself as the wheels fell off for Plymouth not long after.

But my only advice really would be to concentrate mainly on the lower leagues, the value of the odds are much much better than the Prem or even the Championship. That season when Accrington won the league, they were almost always even money when at home, and 2/1 when away. Seemed insane given their form, but I think bookies create the odds depending on what's going on with the market, I guess no one was betting much on Accrington and the money was going on the other teams they were playing with the bigger fanbases.

If the wife and kids are away and I have a bit of time on my hands, I tend to use this website as an in depth free stats/form guide to look at the lower leagues:


Good luck!

Normally do £30 a week.

2 x 3 draws @ £10 each! (trebles)

3 games score & win @ £10 (treble)

The 3 draws come up on average once every 5-6 weeks at minimum odds of 33/1

The score &, win comes up twice a year if I'm lucky.

A friend of mine does several 5.6&7 team accas but splits the stake doing the same bet twice to enable him to cash out half & keep the same bet running to completion.

Paddy Power & Hills prices are abysmal when it comes to correct scores particularly draws.

PP were offering 11/1 & 33/1 for 2.2 & 3.3 draws in the Chelsea v Villa game, should be at least 14/1 & 50/1.

The half time/full time flip flop (team to lead at ht & lose ft) can also pay handsome dividends usually 20/1 minimum.

Re: Football betting
I made over £20k matched betting and don’t have any accounts now as they’ve been either closed or severely restricted.

Other than that, don’t eat yellow snow

Maybe check out Geo's card betting You Tube channel. He seems to know what he's talking about ...

Re: Football betting
Football betting is really hard, not sure if it's still the case but years back football was rated second as the sport where the average punter gets the lowest back from bets placed, second only to boxing.

Know loads more about football than I do horse racing, but tend to get more back from my bets on the horses than I ever do football.

Re: Football betting
skybet have some crazy boosts- today vardy is evens to have 1 shot on target in 90 minutes, for instance

Re: Football betting
take the other £100 out and open a paddy power account. they may be slightly worse football prices but at least they give you offers, promotions and free bets unlike those tight stoke cunts

Re: Football betting
Mainly do cricket top scorer and nfl 1st td bets and that's as they are pretty much the only sports I watch nowadays, so gives me some interest.

Only a fiver a pop, so no disaster when they don't come in and not an amount I'd feel like chasing afterwards.

Do like the skybet ones where they offer a player to have at least 1 shot on target at even money, max bet a tenner. Generally an easy was to double your money as looking through my account, only one of them has never come in (that I've bet on) and amazingly that was Salah! 16 out of 17 winners.

No doubt gave it all back.

All about setting limits. Missus gives me 100 notes a month for it as she knows I spend more on a night down the pub, so an amount I'll never miss.

Re: Football betting
There are plenty of betting companies out there so have a look around and claim the signing-up offer for each one, which is usually decent. Oddschecker will have the details for all of them. You can often make some money by using the free bets and the odds boosts that most bookies offer.

I use Sky Bet and Paddy Power the most at the moment as they offer huge boosts daily plus loads of free bet offers too. So you can at least get value. Obviously only bet what you can afford to lose.

Re: Football betting
You won’t win in the long term that is why bookies are rich.

If you are going after 6/1 shots you will lose more often than you win and your roll will diminish fast.

Find matches that are 2.5 or above to be under 2.5 goals

Back it and then every couple of minutes lay off a 5th until you are guaranteed a profit. The lay will go down a couple of points a minute so you can be out of the bet in 8 - 10 mins and so long as a team doesn’t score your winning are secure. If a team does score then you let it ride and 1-1s and 2-0 secure an even bigger return.

You’ll still lose in the long run.
