Last night I placed a 5 team accumulator. I selected 5 premier league teams to win their Carling Cup ties. Man United, Chelsea, Everton, Spurs and Aston Villa. They all won so my accumulator bet came in at odds of 6.58. I placed €3.07 on this to leave my balance at exactly €40.
True to form I did lay some of the bet off. You’ll see below that I layed Chelsea, Man Utd and Villa. When I did this, both the United and Chelsea games were 0-0 and Villa were 1-0 up.
I’ll admit I did make some miscalculations here and threw a good bit of my profit (€7.35) down the drain. I then backed 0-0 in the United Wolves game, as with only 10 men on the pitch I thought it was worth a punt to ensure I got my money back. All in all I profited €8.92 for the night and that brings my balance to over €50 for the first time but I’m very dissapointed with my betting pattern for the evening and really should have come out with a lot nearer to the €16 that I should have profited. I was pushed for time to make my decisions to ensure profit but at the end of the day I’ve only myself to blame! However, that’s the second day in a row I’ve profited in and around the €10 mark so I can’t complain really. Yesterday, I reset my target for the month to €50. It’s now gone up to €60 and going over the €50 mark gives me a bit more profit to play with and still maintain a healthy profit for month 2.
