Just sitting down to do my fixed odds for today.

 

I like Toon (now that I've broken the jinx) at 4/9 home to Cardiff.

Cup day, so in my experience nae a great gambling day as I tend to avoid cup ties (as you're never sure what line up the "bigger" teams will put out).

 

Falkirk look good value at home to Morton at 5/6.

 

Steve Bruce's resurgent-ish Villa 4/6 at home to Blackburn, TBH I'm nae sure if that's good value or too risky.

Burnley/Palace and West Ham/Stoke look like nice draws.

 

Any more for any more?

Aye, I thought you'd bottle it.

I did them to draw today, never did the correct score. Took Cardiff Luton as a draw also, season of close-but-no-cigar so far.

City just cost me my bet in the 90th min.

What do call that in english? A number of bets combined to one?

I had...

Bayern - Hoffenheim... both teams to score (ended 1-1)

HSV - Dortmund... Aubameyang to score (he did)

Leverkusen - Darmstadt... Leverkusen to win (3-2)

West Ham - Stoke... both teams to score (1-1)

Real Sociedad - Atletico... Sociedad scores (it's 2-0 as I type this)

City - Middlesbrough... City to win (1-1)

F**K!!!

In Scotland we just call it a line, but I guess the correct term would be an accumulator.

 

Falkirk did me, but that was a value chaser if a bet.

 

Anyway, onto the NFL tomorrow. 

Initial thoughts would be the under in Pittsburgh/Baltimore.... haven't looked at the line yet,  but unless it's under 40 I'll be tickling that.

Been a brutal season accumulator wise. I remember the hayclon days of just one result letting you down. 

 

 

I had a line up last week. I was waiting on the game where the ref got hurt, Plymouth at home to Colchester was it?

Anyhoo, I never knew the ref had been hurt, saw Plymouth went 2-1 up in 87, so went out with the dogs thinking I was home.

 

So I'm checking my phone as I go and it's 5 injury time, 6, 9, 12.....I think it went to 17 or summat.

Squeaky bum time.

Let's see how my "accumulator of disasters" holds up tonight. Made one earlier this week with Barça losing against City and Sevilla at 15/1.

Soory Leo, but no chance with the Sevilla part tonight....everbody knows there are only two teams in La Liga..;)

I wonder how much profit you would have made if you ignored Barcelona and Real Madrid and backed "other" teams to win la liga over the last ten or twenty.. thirty season's. 

You'd not be very rich, probably as rich as the bloke who had the same betting plan for the Scottish premier league leaving out Celtic and Rangers.

Thank God (or Messi) I lost that bet. ;)

Kinda hard to get up for the NFL today after the horrible events of the week, but I've had a wee deek at the odds.

Lot of tough to call games this week, which on one level means there's value.

Jets @ even money I like, Tampa at home to Chicago 23/20, but Chicago have picked up.

 

I think this is a week to hunt value and stick a couple of quid on a mug's line.

I had a bet on Borussia Dortmund to draw 0-0 with Legia Warsaw tonight....

Haha!

I had three accumulators over the last two days. Always one wrong. 4 out of 5, 3 out of 4 and 4 out of 5 again.
