  1. Well done again, I missed that one. I literally can't buy a win with my spread bets in here at the moment!
  2. Championship Predictions > Feb 20th & 21st

    Just posted this in my (seemingly cursed, follow with caution) "daily spread" thread: "Derby v Leeds: Buy hotshots for 1 point at 28 with SPIN (Vydra, Lawrence, Lasogga and Roofe) I'd rather have Nugent than Lawrence but still a bet for me at the price. Obviously possible to lose the maximum 28 points but I think there's a decent prospect of at least one goal from these players and am willing to risk that there may be more." Hopefully posting on the main thread improves my luck!
  3. The Daily Spread

    Derby v Leeds: Buy hotshots for 1 point at 28 with SPIN (Vydra, Lawrence, Lasogga and Roofe) I'd rather have Nugent than Lawrence but still a bet for me at the price. Obviously possible to lose the maximum 28 points but I think there's a decent prospect of at least one goal from these players and am willing to risk that there may be more.
  4. Outside Chance (2018)

    Derby v Leeds: Lasogga to score at 4.3 on BF (B3)
  5. Outside Chance (2018)

    Correction to the above, I've taken the 2/1 with PP for Ferreyra (wasn't matched as I thought). Sevilla v Man U: Lukaku to score at 3.35 and Sanchez at 3.75, both matched on BF and (C2).
  6. Outside Chance (2018)

    Shakhtar v Roma: Ferreyra to score at 3.2 (B1) and Dzeko to score at 3.2 (B3), both on BF but ok at 2/1 with bookies.
  7. Kevin Pullein Saturday Picks 2017/18

    That one was a winner, to 1 point stake. 16 winners from 24 selections, +11.15 points to advised stakes with an ROI of 43.73%. +10.2 points to level stakes with an ROI of 42.5%.
  8. The Daily Spread

    For all my waxing lyrical on the joys of spread betting over in the footy threads, this is turning into a masterclass on how not to do it! 711.5 points risked and 378 returned, -333.5 points with an ROI of -46.87%. 8 winners from 35 bets.
  9. FA Cup Predictions > Feb 16th - 19th

    Cheers, yeah think there was a lucky late one for the scorer of the equaliser. Not that often I bet in running but bookings quotes that suddenly look low when a game changes like that one are one of the main times that I do. Man U when behind or drawing games they're big favourites for are usually good for 2 or more cards and the spread will often have dropped below that. I'm a big advocate for spread betting and have been doing it for over 20 years. It's great as a betting option and as a way of identifying possible value in fixed odds markets too. Well done on your good start but I'd advise a note of caution because the good runs are great but the bad ones can be, shall we say, testing! I'm sure you won't, but don't ramp up your staking on the back of a good start only to hit a bad run that wipes out the gains and puts you off the format. I got lucky with some big rugby league supremacy bets early on but also have memories of a footy game where every corner in the 2nd half was costing me around £60! Looking back on something I posted elsewhere a while back, I made a net profit of £145 in my 1st year, lost £600 in the second and was nearly £700 up by July of the following year (by which time I had accounts with 5 firms). Anyway, best leave it there before I get on a reminiscing and evangelising roll!
  10. Outside Chance (2018)

    No joy in the footy but Ioane scores a try so a small profit on the day. 16 winners from 31 bets (51.61%), +18.33 points with an ROI of 59.13%.
  11. FA Cup Predictions > Feb 16th - 19th

    My spread betting track record on here hasn't been great of late but I've bought bookings at 19 at half time in Rochdale v Spurs. With Spurs a goal down I strongly fancy 2 or more yellow cards being shown.
  12. FA Cup Predictions > Feb 16th - 19th

    Well done on that. Not a market I play often and only usually at prices from 60 upwards. Unfortunately I did do Coventry!
  13. Outside Chance (2018)

    Dragons v Benetton: Ioane try at 13/5 with BFS (B2)
  14. Outside Chance (2018)

    Augsburg v Stuttgart: Gregoritsch to score at 2/1 (B2) and Caiuby at 9/2 (C2) both with 365.
