  1. To cut a long story short, I blew big money on football today so in chasing the money I went big on over 34.5 games as needed money back quick, relief that I didn't choose Murray but Murray stormed the first set, I had already broken down to girlfriend thinking id blown a large amount of our money to buy a house . Its caused bog problems and she's making me block all gambling sites. As it turned out, the over 34.5 games bet which i staked a whopping 16 thousand on came in, I won all my money back, and maybe needn't have told her but I think that's it for me and gambling, I simply cannot help being reckless with it.
  2. I'm using BetVictor who void bets if a player retires as they did in the Kyrgios/Marchenko match. Struggling to find value in this game elsewhere, Nishikori has a terrible H2H record against Murray but you never know. He's certainly a capable player himself and a former US Open finaist. Maybe Nishikori to win a set and take the games line over 34.5 at odds of 1.87
  3. That's the sensible reply and thanks, but basically I have blown 3 thousand pounds that is going towards buying a house next week! if I don't recover it I have quite a awkward chat with my girlfriend ahead. I'm looking for a really low odds/near cert to get that money back. Crazy I know but I don't know what else to do.
  4. I need to ask someone more clued up on tennis if there is much chance of Murray losing tonight, I ask because i plan to go big on Murray, i know his odds are low but i'm needing to recover betting losses and need to in the next week. I have 16,000 in my account and need to raise another 3,000. I know this is low odds but how likely would it be to go wrong please?
  5. I'm no tennis expert but Pouille +6.5 at 1.73 has to be highly likely? They have met once before and that was a close 5 setter. And Pouille outplayed Nadal, a QF already matches Monfils best ever peformance at the US Open and hes 30. Already slightly annoyed that i only took Pouille on a handicap as opposed to outright win against Nadal but I rarely back high odds and will probably take the handicap again.
  6. Hi there Need some help with my strategy as I keep losing big money. I am constantly drawn to the low odds and my favourite to back is the unders markets in football. The psychology of why i like the unders markets is that your bet starts off in a winning position, I can't stand backing overs and sitting there frustrated as goals don't go in. But i keep losing big, I dont have a staking plan I tend to bet my entire bank roll on low odds around 1.10-1.30. The amount of games I bet on teams I haven't even heard of is unreal, Whats most frustrating is the very few times I back the overs market they don't seem to come in arghhhh! For exapmple this morning i lost a bet backing a game in Japanese J league 2 , backing under 5.5 in a game that was 2-2 with about 20 minutes left at rubbish odds of about 1.20. Sooooo frustrating. Yet at the same time I backed over 3.5 goals in another J league 2 game where the heavy favourites were losing 2-0 at half time so backing over 3.5 at odds of evens seemed a cert but did it come in ? of course it didn't! Is there any way that backing low odds can be profitable in the long run? I guess its obvious that if i keep betting with all, or nearly all of my bankroll its going to end up crashing. The amount of times ive taken say £50 up to £1000 plus only to blow the lot and feel absolutely awful. Even when I don't bet with my whole bankroll when I lose i end up getting frustrated and chasing the money, I don't seem to be able to stop this psychology. Maybe I should quit.
  7. can anyone who understands odds help me, I backed Wales to win the tournament at £9 stake at odds of 100.00, I'm currently being offered £100 to cash out, what is likely to be the cash out if they won tonight? I have a feeling they could go through tonight but not certain so should I cash out now?
  8. Also took them at 100.00 after they lost 3-0 to Sweden before the tournament. Stuck £10 on them and now being offered £80 profit, now do i cash out or hold on for a potential big win?!
  9. West Brom + 2 5/4 Betfair Arsenal are now out of the title chase and almost nailed on to finish below Spurs for the first time since 1995, confidence will be pretty low so I doubt they will fancy facing a Pullis West Brom side who although are almost certainly safe, will like to make sure with a point or so more. Can see them frustrating Arsenal here.
  10. LEICESTER V WEST HAM As a Spurs fan I seem to find myself laying Leicester alot only to be dissapointed when they win yet again. Today will be a difficult tense game for them so it's quite likely their trend of winning in low scoring matches will continue. UNDER 2.5 13/14 MarathonBet
  11. Wales 80/1 Betfred Quite a long shot of course but you never know with the likes of Gareth Bale in the side. They had a successful qualifying campaign including zero defeats to a good Belgium side. Not one I expect to come in but worth a punt low stakes. p.s can anyone explain each way in football to me, if I selected each way on this selection does it mean I would win even if Wales came 2nd?
  12. Tottenham DNB 2.80 Unibet I don't see Spurs going out with a whimper here, Yes Dortmund are a very good side as we saw in the first leg but I see Spurs making a go of this in front of their own fans. An early goal and the place could be rocking. Yes there will probably be changes to the Spurs side but this side will want to show they can compete against Europes best, especially with Champions League football looking very likely for next season. At the same time Dortmund may have one eye on Sundays tricky away game at Augsburg as they are still very much in the title race in Germany, and may not be fully commited to this game with possibly feeling that they're already through.
  13. Thankyou! seems I was right, and after contacting customer service had my stake refunded.
  14. arghh pretty sure I selected Arsenal +2 on the Asian handicap on Betfred yet my bet is marked as lost, the odds were 5/6, is there any where of seeing a odds history? Im almost certain that it was the Asian handicap as theres no other way id take Arsenal at +2 for Odds on.
