    Ha ha!

    Had Real Madrid to win, over 3.5 goals, 4+corners each team and 20+booking points each team @17.00.

    Late goal bagged it!

    Madrid were pretty overpriced at 2/1 earlier. Gutted I didn't back them.

    Alright lads and lasses. Long time viewer here hoping to contribute. Like to bet on uk lower leagues, obscure leagues, plus some women's and youth. Pre match or in play depending where the value is. Goals and handicaps mostly.

    Welcome @M15 Red. A man after my own heart! I also love scouring all the obscure leagues. I follow them all. Some real gems in there.

    Depends on the lineups of course, but I'm leaning towards Hoffenheim. Really solid at home and Liverpool being Liverpool...

    Will probably do a few Sky RequestABets on this game as have had a few winners already from those.

    Gonna get in on this. Start with a risky:

    San Lorenzo
    Al Ahly Cairo or draw
    Crusaders
    Linfield
    Shanghai Shenhua or draw
    1899 Hoffenheim or Liverpool
    Middlesbrough
    USK Anif
    Tallinna FC Flora
    £5 @4.61

    No I'd avoid. They promote heavily when a long shot wins but this very rarely happens, would be interesting to see what % of RABs win though I imagine its about 5%

    Definitely think Hoffenheim DNB is worth a pop.

    I only use small stakes just for fun as it makes the game more interesting. Some are very long shots but there was some serious potential with the Barca/Real game with all the bookings in that game. I was seriously going to go with Messi & Ronaldo to score, Messi & Ronaldo to be carded, over 3.5 goals and 50+match booking points. That would have been a good one.

    Anyway, some winners over the weekend:

    I did miss out on a few more by a single corner, goal and booking, but still made a few quid. Like I said, just for fun.

    If I remember right, Hoffenheim scored more goals from set-pieces than anyone else in Germany. With Wagner up front they'll be a big threat. I think BTTS is nailed on.

    Hoffenheim or draw @1.60 is decent value me thinks.

    Wish me luck! I know Milan are a long shot, but I have a feeling about Juve this season. Still...worth a punt!

    I wasn't sure about Barcelona, but they now have money to spend and will strengthen well....and now Ronaldo is out for a few games so a chance for them to get a head start at the beginning of the season.

    Good luck @RedPed. I'll be doing quite a few long-term bets as well in the coming days.

    Bets like that are fun if you want something akin to the lottery but I'd rather stick to something with more chance of success and more betting skill/knowledge.

    If it's true that Hoffenheim score a lot from set pieces then (assuming they still have the set piece delivery person/heading machine - think they've sold some of their good players?) then they will be a great bet against a woeful Liverpool defence.

    Good going, like any bet a fair degree of skill involved. I was a mitrovic booking off a 500/1 landing last season so perhaps I'm slightly bitter.

    It's a shame I can't bet on Sky Bet from Bulgaria. Would have liked to try these RABs.

    Anyone getting on Hoffenheim tonight? I fancy them at least at double chance.

    Yep, Hoffenheim win or draw is decent value. Hopefully it comes off.

    Finally got off the mark on Sunday, had Man United/Sunderland/Spurs/Wigan which returned £122 from £5.

    Gone for a Fylde, Darlington and Boro treble tonight. Fylde are 2-1 down and had a man sent off after 20 mins so not expecting a win tonight.

    Stuck £5.70 on Sevilla, Norwich, Beer Sheva, Celtic, Napoli, Olympiakos and Real Madrid.

    Got £222.08 back. Happy days. Sevilla and Olympiakos gave me sweat both scoring in late 80's.

    39/1.
