It’s now clear Enda has pulled away from me with a balance of €37. It means he’s over €15 ahead of me with 2 weeks remaining. Get it wrong this week, and i’m out of it.
Enda is now at an all time record high balance, so i doubt he’s gonna risk much, especially when he knows i’ve a mountain to climb to reach his level.
So it’s now up to me to get back in to this and i’m prepared to lose everything now… so expect plenty of big bets and lots of movement with my balance this week.
I already have one big bet placed for this week and if it goes wrong, i’m in trouble. If it goes right (obviously i think it will), i’ll be over the €30 mark again and right back in it.
So the stakes are high now… this is usually when i’m at my best – just after losing big. I’ve come back from losses time and time again this month and i’ll need to do it again if i’m to catch up with Enda and get my no.1 spot back.
By Wednesday, my balance could be €12 or less. It could also be €31 + so i’m really going for it this week. I backed against Celtic winning in the champions league a couple of weeks ago and got burned. Tomorrow night, they’re at home and take on Arsenal. Parkhead is a fortress, particularly on big european nights so it would take a brave man to beat against Celtic tomorrow. I will be betting on the match, but i’ll have to see what stands out for me…
There are other european ties over the next couple of days, but i’m not sure how many will be televised. This weekend we also have another round of premier league ties so there’ll be plenty of opportunities for me there too.
I’m also hoping Enda does me a few favours… his €30 punt on usain bolt was, perhaps, an indication that he’s moving towards a more attacking style of betting – one which up until yesterday, had seen me hold the lead for the vast majority of august so far.
