Earlier today I had a quick bet there on a match I knew nothing about. I was looking at the live match updates on livescore.com and I jumped on a quick change in score when the match went to 1-1. I quickly backed the draw with about 12 minutes of play left and layed it off to ensure a small profit of 55 cents. Not a massive win, but they all count and I’m trying to build my balance to attack this weekend. Small wins like this give me a bit extra to play with and ensure I hold on to at least €20 of profit for the month. Here’s the match I backed, you’ll see I was guaranteed a small profit no matter what 55 cents for the draw and 20 cents if either team won the game.
It may seem like absolute madness laying off a bet like this but by laying off I guaranteed a 10% profit on my €2 stake no matter what and over 25% profit if it stayed 1-1. Probably not the best thing in the world to be betting in markets I don’t know anything about but sometimes you have to take a gamble. This extra 52 cents (after betfair commission) may have a massive impact on my next bet over the weekend. I’ll only be placing one or two more bets this month. I now have a target of €75 in mind, so I need a 9/1 winner with a €2.50 stake. If it doesn’t come off, I still keep my €50 balance and I’ve doubled my money 2 months in a row. It doesn’t have to be one bet to reach this target. If it does come off I’ll go for one more large bet and try and hit the €90 mark. I’ve done well with accumulators this month and if I can pull one or two good bets out of the bag in the next 6 days, these targets are definitely achievable.
