Topic: The Bedrock Sporting Bet Thread

Seems like there's a load of people on here who like a flutter. So thought it would be quaint to share them and your wins/losses.

My 20 quid bet this week

Arsenal @ 11/10
Aston Villa @ 3/1
Man City @ 4/9
Tottenham @ 8/13
Southampton @ 8/11

Total odds - 32/1


Cant believe Villa are 3/1 to beat the dippers with the form they are in. Worth a bet on its own.

Part of the problem

Re: The Bedrock Sporting Bet Thread

Backed us at 13/2 last week to beat Arsenal. Quids in.

Never bet on Spurs. Can't help but think Swansea will beat them at WHL.

32/1 for all that lot does seem extremely tempting though.

Re: The Bedrock Sporting Bet Thread

I put £20 on Villa yesterday

I like betting on golf - I seem to win much more often.  I get caught betting with my heart on football too often - Bolton versus QPR tomorrow is a dead cert draw to me at 11/5, but I can't bet on Bolton drawing at home.

Re: The Bedrock Sporting Bet Thread

Yeah i'm not a gambling man, but i'll usually put a couple of quid on the golf majors.

And i didn't do too bad this year.  Won well on The Masters, picked Rose to win the US Open and picked Dufner to win the USPGA.

Rule 1 is never bet on your own club. Rule 2 is never bet on dippers to win coz thats counter productive.

Re: The Bedrock Sporting Bet Thread

Re: The Bedrock Sporting Bet Thread

Might stick £20 on City myself to cover any losses on the accumulator.

32/1. I'm having some of that.

Re: The Bedrock Sporting Bet Thread

yeh i reckon thats about as good as it gets with a 5 fold. Dont blame me though presto.

Re: The Bedrock Sporting Bet Thread

Oh I'm all to aware of the risks, fella. I don't blame others for own decisions anyway.

Still reckon Swansea will upset Spurs though.

Tiredness could be a factor for Villa vs Liverpool too.

Top thread, Dermo.

More than a double is trouble!

I am on Brechin & Burton Albion at a shade over 5/2.

Re: The Bedrock Sporting Bet Thread

Re: The Bedrock Sporting Bet Thread

In the interests of transparency, I was on Wigan/Brentford last week. lol.

I did manage two profitable weeks in a row from the first weekend so I'm ahead of the camel coats for the moment.

Re: The Bedrock Sporting Bet Thread

Yeh but fuck, they are tough bets to call. I can't bet unless I can see teams play weekly and know their squad and injuries etc.

Re: The Bedrock Sporting Bet Thread

Tip for a horse running at Kilbeggan at 7.35.

Ill need to get up to the Indian reservation if I want to play unfortunately.
