Lost the other ones though.
|Rytas - Kazan||Basketball||I think Rytas are quite storng favourites here. Kazan form away from home is very poor.||1.86|
|Szombathely - Zaragoza||Basketball||I think the home team is in a very good home form, and Zaragoza had lost easier games away this season. Go low, because the competitive gap between ACB and the rest of european leagues is usually huge. Note: this could become a live trade.||2.45|
|Charleroi - Bayeruth||Basketball||This is a FIBA Europe Cup game, which is a competition that has little interest for a team like Bayeruth. But go low, because if Bayeruth really wants to win this match, chances go low for the belgium team. This can be a good one for live trade.||2.35|
Triple fail tbh the Rytas defeat wasn't totally unexpected because Kazan have more star power, despite Rytas being a very well drilled team.

That's a great story! Well done. You've pretty much answered your own question. If it was that easy we'd all be millionaires. It's always about moderation and knowing your limit but you don't need anyone to tell you that. You'll win when you don't expect to and lose when it's nailed on.So I'm wondering if I'm a lucky bastard or if this happens all of the time with you guys. Also I'm wondering if I'm about to develop a bad habit.
Long story in spoiler below.
Story is, I was bored at work one day before Christmas, and me and a colleague made up some bets. And I'm not one to bet often. Probably a couple, like 3 or 4 £10 bets a year maybe, and even less in the last few years.
The bet was a CL round with wins to Leverkusen- Juventus @ 3.40
Club Brugge-Real Madrid @ 2.20
Zagreb- City @ 1.87
Inter- Barcelona @ 4.90 for a combined
I wanted to put £35 on it cause I'd gotten a nice paycheck for december,half tax and I felt lucky and upbeat. Because I recently switched bank, the visa card connected with my account bounced... (Remember, I never bet) Optimistically I texted my girlfriend half serious lile, and told her to put £35 on these matches, explaining I didn't have my visa card available, knowing she had a betting account. I later that day found out she actually made the bet and we won £2398! My colleague won £2900 because he used Unibet and got way better odds than me. I'm using the state owned betting company with crappy odds
So lucky right.. but there's more. In the next few days, high on confidence, I registered for an account over at Unibet and got a 200% bonus on my deposit (£50) which got me a nice £50+£100 to play with. After losing a couple of £10 bets I made a bet with 5 matches in the PL;
Wolves City ((Fecking lucky with this one @8.75))
And Spurs Brighton
The £10 bet got me £1350. I couldn't believe it! I'm the best better in the northeren hemisphere! Right?
At Unibet I've successfully turned over my bonus 5 times (£500 on bets over 1.40) with my bet on Barca tonight and some games this weekend, without losing any more of the winnings, so I'm free to cash out the £1300 in a few days.
So totally I've spent £35 and £50 while winning a combined £3600 in a month or so.
So I guess my question to you is should I quit now that I'm ahead, or should I keep betting?
Will I spiral out of controll? Am I a good better or just a lucky sob?
This weekend for example I'm planning to bet £50 or £100 on wins to Arsenal, City, United, Liverpool and Leicester @8.58.. So tempting but all my mates who bet a lot, always seem to lose money in the long run.. while getting a nice payout every now and then.
If I'm going to keep on betting I'm thinking about setting a limit at maybe £50 per month and that's it. I don't want it to get out of hand.
