Had a small bet on the UCL qualifiers tonight.

Over 2.5 double (Malmo v Zalgiris & Bodø/Glimt v Linfield) @ 2.44

Can you sprinkle some magic dust on this thread and eliminate that flippin' 'one away' curse that's been inflicting me for months.

Wish granted. You'll now always be 3 away.
Ha ha thanks a lot!

Actually, yesterday I just needed Sweden to get 4+ shots on target for one of my bets to come in. They stuck on 3 for most of the second half. But SkyBet have paid out as a winner. Should I just keep my head down or will they rescind it?

Ironically, I had 3 other winners yesterday including an E/W at Goodwood so perhaps my unlucky streak is over?

Or have I just jinxed it again?

I used some of the winnings on the Germany W v France W game and had two more winners. I've double-checked FlashScore and it still says 3 shots on target? But there are 4 blocked shots. Do they count as SoTs?

I've withdrawn most of it as well now so will just wait and see what happens. Great start to the new season though.

Checked sky sports website and they're showing 4 on target so guess that's how they've settled that :lol:

I've learned to never fully trust FlashScore, Its a great App and all that but will throw in some dodgy information from time to time.

Happened to me once on bet 365, won like 100 and something on a football bet, they do early pay out if your team goes 2 ahead, the last team went 2-0 up I cashed it out straight away and withdrawn only for it to be ruled out by VAR and the match finished 1-1 :lol: At first they put the balance In minus so every time I would of deposited they’d of took some back but then they emailed me and said they’ve reset the balance and let me of as a one of gesture. Was there fault to be honest haha.

Sancho first to score for us for 9.50 worth it? Or will he assist Martial?
Unless your stake is 0.5units I personally wouldn't. If you're that confident Sancho will have a goal contribution, might be better to do a build your odds with Sancho to score anytime + Man Utd win for example. At least, you're covered if he scores second. Remember, he may be doing well under Erik, but he's not a set piece taker, and (rightly or wrongly) wingers are typically one of the first players to come off when the attack is in need of a goal. Personally, I only bet on a particular player to increase the odds of sides which are heavily favourites. For example, an acca which included Bayern Munich I would have Bayern ML + Lewandowski to score anytime. Nowadays, I do PSG ML + Mbappe to score anytime + Neymar at least one shot on target. Celtic with Jota etc.

Well I feel quite confident we will score and Brighton defend deep so we should score first and I think without Ronaldo Sancho should have higher goal involvement. I liked Sancho in pre season and in 2/4 games he did score our first goal I think.

Martial more likely by the odds to score, but I feel based on pre season that Sancho will be as deadly this year.

Rashford subbed first I think and I do not trust his form as much as Sanchos. Also Maguire and our set pieces is likely not getting a goal nor will the fullbacks. Mctominay maybe.

I can just bet on him anytime to score for 4 times money which if we score minimum two goals is certainly worth it. Although as you said he can come off, but likely after the first goal so it would not change the first goal bet. Last goal more risky with him as a sub player like Elanga could get that goal or possibly Ronaldo from the bench.

I think we will see some upsets. Barca vs Real tight race.

Bayern may finally fail to win without Lewandowski.

Serie A and PL could involve many sides. I probably fear Liverpool winning it even if Mane loss is huge for them.

I think that’s fair but I am just using the most obvious ones . I can’t include Liverpool and then hope for them to win all season

City, PSG, Bayern are almost a given but I think Barca will win La Liga, they've been resurgent under Xavi and signed Lewandowski. Serie A is too competitive to call now. If Juve gets their act together, they will win back Scudetto.

I think there is zero chance Juve win Serie A unless they improve dramatically. Their squad is really not good enough

Got big money on a Man United, Man City and Leicester treble today.
Weirdly I don't trust City today me.

I think they are a bit undercooked in terms of preparation and West Ham won't be easy.

4-0 City probably :lol:

If you guys have a William Hill account, they are offering 'EPIC ODDS' of evens on a goal being scored in the Villa/Everton game tomorrow.
According to Hills, the original/true odds were 1/16 (not convinced about that myself, but no matter).

Maximum stake is £10. If you stick said tenner on it, then bet £2.50 on 'no goalscorer' @7-1, you are guaranteed a return of £20 for your £12.50 outlay.

Not much but hey, that's something!
