Tonight i bet on two matches. I had planned to. My post earlier was written after i’d placed these two bets, so that post was designed to lay a trap for Enda in the hope he’d read it and (a) think twice about backing Arsenal (b) perhaps stick a few quid on celtic.
I said it would take a brave man to bet against Celtic at parkhead but that’s exactly what i did. I didn’t think celtic had a chance. In fact, i backed them with €9.94 which was almost half of my balance!
I tipped a 2-0 or 2-1 arsenal away win on betfair forums and guess what… the match finished 2-0 to arsenal. I called it spot on.
In total, i actually profited exactly €9.94, so i doubled my original €9.94 bet
One other match i had bet on was the sunderland / chelsea match. This was a banker bet, or so i thought. Chelsea had to win. I stuck €4 on them at relatively short odds before kick off at 1.57.
Sunderland went 1-0 up and i thought to myself ‘****’. Still, i’ve a good knowledge of football and i know Chelsea are more than capable of over-turning a 1-0 deficit. At half time, they were still 1-0 down, but rather than back Chelsea to win, i layed Sunderland to win with €5 at odds of 2.4, meaning i’d win €5 if sunderland didn’t win, lose €7.20 if they did hold on and win.
That match finished 3-1 to chelsea, so i won a total of €7.28 on that match.
So in total, i netted myself €17.22 profit today. By far and away the biggest profit by one person in a single day on lucky.ie. So after that huge €19 loss on tiger woods a couple of days ago, i’ve fought back to win most of it back.
Oh yeah and Enda? I’ll have my no.1 spot back thank you very much I’ve just reversed a €15+ lead Enda had hours ago My balance is now €38.30.
This is 3 or 4 times now i’ve lost big and immediately fought back to win big. Perhaps i should lose a bit more often as it seems to bring out the best gambler in me
