Hi fellow betting enthusiasts, it is time to make $500. The rules are that you must put the full bank on each bet until you have a bank of $100, from that point onwards you can put on as much or little as you like.

Good luck and lets all make $500 (Pounds for you all that are based in England)

Did one at the weekend, got 20 to 120, then Lazio lost. That would have put me in for 220 to put on a win double of Madrid and Barca.... damn it.

Follow the Spain Train on twitter. Does football betting - starts tonight actually - Got 50 to 1547 the weekend before last and then did 50 to 600 or so this past weekend. You don't win every week. But it's good fun if you have a bit of spare cash.

He's doing a midweek train tonight.

That was 56 return. Then it would have been all on a Athletico & Leicester double last night....

Normally have a target of fixtures over the weekend - sorry if that was a little vague. They cashed in at 1500 & 600.

So the rolling accumulator stopped as the last bet won, in those two circumstances.

Yeah, but it can be 10, 20 -what ever your stake and the relative winnings accordingly.

Starts on the first Prem game (and goes through saturday /Sunday) Prem / La liga. It involves being on Twitter though and finding out the next bet, if the first one wins.

He sometimes loses the first one and goes for a back-up.

I am doing Footballacca 10 to 50 bets 1k....

They opted to cash out at bet 23, and 550 last week, due to a bad week of normal bets!

I'm taking a different strategy. Am doing a higher amount in the form of 5 bets, then starting again, and hoping to do x 2 or x3 my money, before the next loss. And repeat. They seem to be mostly over 1.5 goal bets - which certainly carries no guarantees. Aim is to build up a biggish pot over a period of a few weeks, and if the strategy works - increase my initial stake.

Ok people, it's my Birthday on Friday and my beloved Allblacks are playing Argentina. Now this bet that I want to share with you all is usually at least a 60 percent chance of happening.

It is the first scoring play, put a few pounds on the Allblacks scoring first by way of a penalty conversion.

I have been studing the formatt of how the allblacks play for many years and depending on the situation, normally, because the allblacks play a fast game, they normally break the line and the defensive team do tackle but will have to slow the ball down so that their team is back on side and in a defensive line. This will mean that they normally offer a penalty outcome.

The Allblacks always want to put points on the board and will therefore go for a kick at goal.


I am so confident of this that I am going to put $300 on this option myself.

All_Fired_Up
18-07-2015, 12:28 AM
