Fancy one the mora 1.30 Newcastle BRUSHWORK 6/4 unbeaten, 3/3 at Newcastle, going up to 7f probably only concern decent chance though.

Rytas - KazanBasketballI think Rytas are quite storng favourites here. Kazan form away from home is very poor.1.86
Szombathely - ZaragozaBasketballI 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 - BayeruthBasketballThis 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

Went on a DC for Giannina at Greek CUP @2.27 with a small punt

I know greek football is filled with match fixing, but Giannina is in a terrific home form and PAO has been poor away this season.

Triple fail :D tbh the Rytas defeat wasn't totally unexpected because Kazan have more star power, despite Rytas being a very well drilled team.

If pushed I would side with Atletico +0.5 but I more or less agree with current market prices.
Dunno... unless Barça rotates, I can't see Atletico getting a result. Not only they are playing like crap, Simeone and some players are clashing.

Omicron Persei 8, Scrotum Oranje.
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
68.0 odds.
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! :houllier::D 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 :lol:

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;

Leicester Pool
Villa
Norwich
Everton Burnley
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.

(Unibet, feel free to compensate me handsomely for this free commercial)

That's a great story! Well done. :D 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.

At Euroleague, Anadolu is a good shout for an underdog win or go on AH. The odds are quite good but Barça has been very consistent this season, unlike last 5 seasons

Bookies had learned fast. Pizzi and Carlos Vinicius odds to score are way bellow 2.00
Christmas doesn't last all year, I know, but it was good while it lasted.
