Last night I watched the X Factor and saw Lloyd do his backflip and decided that he was a cert to stay in as this would gain him loads of votes with teenage girls. I layed him at 7.0 for €2, risking €12 of my kitty. My reason for this is that I was sure he’d stay in and I wanted to rapidly increase the amount I’d bet so far this month. However, his odds started dropping hevily today so I decided to lay two other competitors (John & Edward and Rachel).
In doing this I’d only loose €8 instead of €12 if Lloyd went out, I also backed Lloyd to go out
(I know this sounds dumb), but the last thing I wanted was to let Sean back in to it easily so I was willing to spread the loss across all 3 acts.
This left me with a small lose if any of these three went out, but it was a loss I was willing to take. Amazingly I was guaanteed a €1 profit as none of the acts ended up in the bottom 2 When this happened, I decided to give up my profit on Miss Frank who were favourites to go out and bank on Danyl going out to win me €5. Unfortunately, Miss Frank went out but I still managed to profit 34 cents. I’m happy enough with this as I thought I’d be loosing about €3 on this!
I had one more bet today also. I did a 28 cent forecast on Valencia to score first and United to beat Liverpool 2-1.
At odds of 95/1, this would have netted me €26 for a very small bet. Scorecasts are damn near impossible but I thought it was worth a punt.
Here’s all my betsfor today:
I’ve now bet over the €25 kitty for this month and I’m reluctant to bet until I see if Sean can pass me. I will go for one for bet next weekened to try and go over the €30 mark. I’m down 96 cents so far and I went a bad mad today with some bets I normally wouldn’t go for but I’ve now bet my quota and was able to do so without risking too much. I’ll be trying hard to find a good bet next weekend to take me over the €30 mark!
