A few small losses on the gg’s

August 5th, 2009 by enda Leave a reply »

In my earlier post, I said that I didn’t ‘think’ that I’d have another bet today. I thought wrong :) I had a wee punt on a couple of horse races this afternoon. In the first race I layed two favourites to place in an 8 horse race. If either finished outside the top three then I was up either 13 cents or 11 cents, guess what? They finished 1st and 2nd. So I ended up losing 33 cents in total on that race.

I then had a punt on a 5.4/1 shot, placing 25 cents on it in the hope that I’d come out with €1.35 profit. No good here either… I wonder is it still running? Anyway, that’s a loss of 62c for both races, hardly a disaster but I’m dissapointed that I ate in to my poker profit from early this morning. The second bet was perhaps a bit silly but I definitely thought there was a bit of value in experimenting with the first bet/s. These small bets are a bit of craic, I’m not taking the same risks as Sean and I’m not profiting as much as him but I’m a lot less open to a big loss. So that increases the amount I’ve bet by 62c and decreases my profit by 62c. I’m still €0.98 in profit and I’ve bet €11.80 so far.

I did look at the football today also. Fair play to Sean for coming out with his prediction on the Celtic game! He sold it well and he nearly had me convinced of a Celtic lay, but I thought better of it. He was wrong today, but his thinking was good and he took a previous match between the sides last year into account, which was good research. I didn’t fancy anything in tonights matches. I’m actually late with this entry as I went out to watch the Man Utd v Valencia which finished 2-0 to United. Michael Owen should have had at least 2, if not 4, it’s good to see him getting the chances anyway! If I’m honest I actually thought there was a bit of value in Valencia at 5/1 on Betfair but I didn’t go for it… phew! Anyway, another day, another dollar…

    @sean: honestly, i’d say no! but it’s worth a go with those odds. Chelsea are strong and will be and Ancelotti will be looking to make a big first impression, what about 0-0 and penalties? Wasn’t overly impressed with United last night, solid enough and got the result but we were saying we might need a bit more in the middle for Europe. I’m still adopting to old braveheart ‘hold…. hold… hoooold…’ startegy :)
