Fresh from a massive win yesterday, i got a reality check again today when i lost €4.72. I was betting in play in the Darlington -v- Leeds carling cup match.
At half time it was 0-0 and shortly after the second half resumed, i backed a draw as it looked quite likely (i intended to trade a small profit then by laying it later in the match).
I hit the ’submit’ button and i waited for a few seconds for my bid to be accepted. As i got the green confirmation message, leeds scored to make it 1-0 – literally just seconds after i’d place my bet.
So i got burned big time there. Very unlucky. It was only a €1 bet, so it could have been worse, but i was determined not to fall back further and let Enda close the gap. So i layed a 1-0 leeds win… placing €2 on it and risking losing €3.72 with about 35 minutes to go.
The ball was in the net at one stage but it was called off side… there were one or two close shaves too but it just wasn’t my day. I already have €3 on a match tomorrow. So far when i’ve lost, i’ve come back stronger than before so i’m hoping this is just a temporary blip in form and i’ll start to make my comeback tomorrow.
It’s early in the week too, so i’ve plenty of time to make up for this loss. Despite losing €4.72 today, i’m still sitting on a balance of €32.67 and still in the lead so i’m not panicking.
