I’ve never lost a bet!

August 1st, 2009 by enda Leave a reply »

That’s not 100% true, actually I have lost bets – lots of them, but I had to open my blogs on here with a controversial statement! In a way it is true though as the birth of this site and the competition between myself and Sean is a totally fresh start to online betting for me! As off today, I’m neither a winning gambler nor a loosing gambler, so I’ve never lost a bet! The fact that I haven’t actually won a bet is another story! Until we get this site off the ground I will not be placing any offline bets or any other online bets other than those mentioned on here. I have a €20 online budget and that’s my lot!

So where do I start? Well as this is a new idea and I’m excited about it. I know that I’ll probably find it very hard not to rush in and have a hundred bets tomorrow :) I need to keep the discipline though and try to ensure that I’m getting value out of my €20 over the month of August. Speaking of the €20, here’s a screenshot of my Betfair account with a starting balance of €20 as of 1st of August.

Last night, I also popped out a book I’ve had for a while, ‘Winning on Betfair for Dummies’. It’s a good wee book and gives a good run through how Betfair works. Betfair is actually pretty simple, but it’s daunting enough to begin with so as part of my effort on here I will try to produce some videos on how to sign up to Betfair and how to use the site and the different types of bets you can place on there.

I’ve been looking at the all Ireland Quarter Final Football matches this weekend, here’s the odds below:

I’m tempted to back a draw in the Dublin v Kerry game as I’m guessing it’ll be blown up if there’s a sniff of the side’s being level anywhere near the 70 minute mark. Dublin are going in to this one as favourites, but can you write of Kerry and are they worth a punt at 7/5? I wont be going for this one though for now but can I think it’s worth looking at a draw in one of the four games at odds of 9/1 and above and this for me is the most likely draw. I feel that there ‘might’ be a bit of value in Donegal at 7/2 in the game against Cork, this one might be worth a punt if the Donegal team come with the momentum of victories over Derry and Galway in the previous rounds. I’m probably going with my heart and not my head here and the low odds on Cork will probably be justified. I’ll leave it for now and will wait to watch the games and might place a bet in running depending on how things are going.

Jeez, I feel as though I’m putting my neck on the line with predictions like this on here and it’s only my first post, maybe I a need a new approach already :) But there’s no money on for now and I’ll be back later if I decide to go ahead with any of these bets. Cold or what? No disciplined! :)
