Just in case anyone is interested - England ODI top english batsman - Bopara has been moved up to open but is still priced as if he was batting at 8.

Got him at 13/2 on stan james.

fingers crossed

Got a question for you betting people...


Normally i do an acca of quite a few games . .. maybe 8 - 10 maybe a few more. I do this cause i put a £ on and will see a huge return if it does come in.

Am i better off doing bigger bets on smaller accumulators?? (say 5£ on 5 teams) Maybe chucking in a four fold or something?

Help me make some money people!

Much much better doing a treble or four fold. It's where the smart money is mate. Obviously you won't win nearly as much as you could on a 20 team accie but over the course of numerous bets you'll make a lot more money. If you're just smart about who you bet on, you'll be fine.

With trebles you have got 10 bets so that would be 10 x your stake (which if were willing to stake £20 would basically be £2 per bet). Fourfolds is 5 bets so again a £20 stake would be £4 per bet.

Using Bet365's odds you would get £343 if you had £20 on all 5 but would need all 5 to win
For the fourfolds you would get £190 if all 5 win, 1 of them loses and your best win would be £56.
For trebles if all 5 came in would win you around £100 but this would massive decrease if 1 or 2 lose.

If you pick 5 teams and have 1 bet that all five would win then it would be a fivefold. A fourfold with 5 teams would actually be made up of 5 different bets of four teams each.

Always a tough night to bet on with the Champions League so close to the end. Millwall did me a massive favour in the end last night so have a good bit to play with tonight.

Looking at Liverpool, Chelsea, Inter, Barca and Shakhter tonight at 10's.
