No biggie mate, don’t go out of your way to find another one if nothing stands out. Entirely up to you, I’m easy.

Good point Wadda ... my previous reply related to the 'general' booing.  So you are correct,  all things considered the booing was crass and unnecessary. 

But how do you stop it? ... the pack.mentaliity rules at sporting events.  Even in 'polite' England.  Mind you,  the soccer crowds leave a lot to be desired and the balmy army are a crass lot as well. 

Pretty much Macca. Perhaps they didnt realize how bad his injury could have been, considering he was back out so soon.

Ive put in a sub bet because i didnt realize the Italian soccer doesnt start till next week. In keeping with superstition i will make it my best next week.

See above

Well I've put both combo's on and I noticed that Sparta Prague have already shot out to a 1-0 lead.

I thought you might. Sorry about the mix up. I thought Italy had already started, but i think last week must have been practice matches. One never knows whats going on in Italy...only the Italians! Lets hope the original bet is a slow burn.

DZ said hed post me an update, but hes disappeared. Weekend sporting pass must have been revoked at the last minute!

Go the Reds!

Edit: 2-0

Well at least we found another MB favourite DZ.

The mighty Reds of Sparta Prague!

In all seriousness they can be used as a banker going forward as they often dominate the Czech league.

Sporting Lisbon often beat up the lesser-lights at home too.  Whilst punters look out for Benfica & Porto,  Sporting Lisbon often slip under the guard.

The betting fluctuations in the cricket last night were just wild. England got out to as much as 34/1 before coming back into 4s late in the game. There was the inevitable middle order crash and at one stage Leech was on a hatrick. Of course Ladbrokes was closed for maintenance from midnight till 7.30am with no warning so i couldnt get on ! (probably luckily).

One thing ive noticed often with the 2 tests so far that you can get as good as 10 or more to one for both teams if your brave enough to bet on the side thats in trouble. You can only lose on the draw in this case and with bright sunshine forecast for the next game, this outcome is unlikely. Having an each way bet of 10/1 in a 2 horse race is not bad.

Chelsea seemed to be peppering the goals at the end, but couldnt get the winner. Ive identified so far that the heavy scorers in the EPL seem to be Liverpool, Tottenham and Man City. I changed my strategy slightly and went looking for the +1.5 option  to see if i could find one around 2/1.  +2.5 is great and a top bet, but it means 3 goals....3-0 2-1 2-3 etc......whereas +1.5 takes in the 2-0 scoreline which is common in games where 1 team dominates but doesnt necessarily have the heavy scoring capability, as was the case with our new friends Sparta Prague last night. I think as long as the leg is around 2.00 thats pretty acceptable for us, even if its just 1 anchor leg. Anyway thats just me, you guys can do what ever you think.

Its good to get updates from everyone re betting strategies and chosen sport. We are getting better at this.

Good point Wadda

I might look for some value teams in the soccer at +1.5 (Match Score) ... outside of the elite teams where often +3.5 gets up (especially with Man City & PSG)  For instance,  Man Utd are showing $3.00 (+1.5) for their match at Wolves tomorrow morning. 

Juventus,  Barca,  Bayern,  Real Madrid & Liverpool are more likely at +2.5.  Porto & Ajax score heavily as well although Ajax have lost a few of their stars.  Bayern might be a team that slips into that +3.5 bracket.  Maybe Barca as well. 

We might all go for 3 value picks one time as a trial ... we seem to be very good at getting 2 out of 3 so the extra odds means we could have a dabble at the 3 doubles within the tri-bet multi. 

I know Gator loves doing that with his short priced tips (the treble & 3 doubles with the 3 picks)  It's just a matter of splitting one's initial outlay. 

Just a thought though.

PSG? = maybe PSV Eindhoven?

Ok, i think i see what your getting at. So we have a 3 pick multi for say $10...(2 cups of coffee, cause its winter) and instead of putting the 1 bet on, we go 3 x 2 leg multis, @ 3.33 each, thus at least one mathematically has to get up. Then we put on the original 3 leg as well. So then that would be 2.50 for each bet. So then you are saying if we do that we go for the higher odds @ +2.5 or more? Is that correct?

I see Laddies have done a massive upgrade to the site. Its easier to find the soccer teams, but the whole thing is a little harder to navigate. Guess it will just take some getting used to. The old one did have a few glitches esp with multis...

We could do that super-value tri-bet every now and again.  Each of us finds something that is paying $3 - $4 (or more)

That way any double within the treble is paying 10-1 or more.  And the treble itself can pay 30-1 or better.  Got the idea from Gator as he does it with 3 of his best bets in the horses.  Plus,  we quite often get 2 from 3 anyway. 

It might be a mattet of going -2.5 or -3.5 in baseball or +3.5 in soccer.  Doesn't really work with $2 chances.  So 4 units = 11 units (at least) as long as 2 of the picks salute.

And PSG = Paris St Germain (who dominate the French league)  PSV are another standout though in the Dutch league.

Just a thought though Wadda as it's not a bad idea to change things up sometimes.  Find a way so to speak.

Oh god yeah, im all for trying different things. Im a little surprised we dont get the 3 pick more often tbh. Weve had some bad luck there. Its just a small outlay anyway as you say, and well within everyones punting budget.  When we get a return its usually good.

Rule of thumb with multis is there is always one pick that puts you out Wadda

But by doing the value 2/3 multi one pick can miss and you still win (as long as the other 2 salute)  Could be tried with a 3/4 or 4/5 but then the picks don't have to be as valuable.  

And just think about how many times we miss with one of the picks.  It has happened to me countless times. 

One time a few years back one of my sporting events was abandoned but I got every other pick up.  I duly collected a 4 figure amount but if that game wasn't abandoned then it probably would have put me out.  Murphy's law!

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started.

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September?

But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur.
