  1. Midweek Yankee Only 4 possibles during the week if (like me) you dont count stupid international friendlies. Couldn't use the info that Brightboy gave me because these were the only 4 options as I've said DRAW YANKEE Stranraer v Forfar @ 12/5 (Monday) Shrewsbury v York @ 21/10 (Tuesday) Margate v Hereford @ 21/10 (Tuesday) Telford v Dag&Red @ 21/10 (Tuesday) Starting Bank 100 units Total Wagered 34 units Current Bank 66 units
  2. Joining EZ Just filled out the form and it said it was declined - cheeky buggers!! :eek I think it's gone through now though. :D Mods - I think maybe a help section on what the 'card code' is might help? I did see the little bit of info at the bottom of the form - but thats all it is 'a LITTLE'. On my card two seperate things COULD have applied. :rolleyes Anyway I'm drifting from the point of this thread topic... sorry.
  3. Re: Re:fair play Brightboy - thanx for that data. (Where else could you get this kinda help for free? I must pay my $6 to ezboard as advice like that deserves something). Anyway I shall now make matches that fall into the areas you indicate my first picks in the future (assuming there are lots of games that WOULD have matched my old criteria). I still want to do 2 yankees if possible though. Once again thanks. :D
  4. Ask a silly question - with respect Firstly let me say this. My bets have stunk lately so I am not up my own ass BUT You dont bet on friendly internatioanls because .... ermm ....they are friendlies? Like 2nd teams going out? Players not caring? Managers not really caring? Fans NOT REALLY caring. I am not taking the Piss - just trying to be honest - and hopefully trying to save us all some money.... no offence mate. :D

Re: fair play FIRST YANKEE Fulham V Villa @ 11/5 (2-1 :x ) West Brom v Bolton @ 11/5 (1-1 :D ) Grimsby v Stoke @ 11/5 (2-0 :x ) Preston v Millwall @ 11/5 (2-1 :x ) SECOND YANKEE Shef Weds v Norwich @ 21/10 (2-2 :D ) Brentford v Crewe @ 11/5 (1-2 :x ) Port Vale v Luton @ 11/5 (1-2 :x ) Boston Uts v Scunthorpe @ 21/10 (1-0 :x ) ACCUMULATOR - JUST IN CASE!!! 1 unit - :x :rollin :x :rollin :x - you're 'aving a larf Starting Bank 100 units Total Wagered 23 units Current Bank 77 units Interesting really seeing as none of these games were picked because I particularly
  6. Re: Why I choose a Yankee Oops one more point if I may? I know the more experienced (and definately more patient of you) will be sighing at the fact I have laid down some cold hard cash before testing the data that Joe so wisely suggested. :rolleyes It's just that - to be honest - I am crap at trawling through loads of back data and would rather have the fun of collating my own with the added fun of having a flutter.... :D
  7. Why I choose a Yankee Smudge, You might notice from my reply to Joe that I didn't realise he was responding as I was writing out my Yankees for posting. In other words I was doing this devoid of the knowledge Joe had replied. With regards as to why I am doing Yankees are as follows. A double at average odds of 11/5 + 11/5 will return 10.24 units for a 11 unit stake. I think this is an acceptable loss - virtually breaking even for the potential pay offs. If 3 come up the returns on 11/5 + 11/5 + 11/5 would be as follows 10.24 + 10.24 + 10.24 + 32.77 = 63.49 units (a profit o
  8. Re: BETTING ON DRAWS. Thanx Joe, I was writing out the previous post before I got your reply. Anyway I'm commited now so wish me luck!
  9. Re: BETTING ON DRAWS. Right, to make it more interesting I am going to start with the traditional 100 units and place 2 Yankees (nicking part of Tosh's Value Yankee idea) and see how it goes. I'm going to pick games where the teams have no more than 0.5 in odds for the win between them, gamble on the draw result - and see how it goes. All odds will be taken from William Hill as thay are my local bookies. Two yankees for this Saturday. FIRST YANKEE Fulham V Villa @ 11/5 West Brom v Bolton @ 11/5 Grimsby v Stoke @ 11/5 Preston v Millwall @ 11/5 SECOND YANKEE Shef Weds v Norwi
  10. A question for the statistic gurus out there. 8o Has anyone played around with the idea of only betting on draws in matches that the bookies indicate (through the odds they give) are too close to call? For example in matches where both teams are within 0.5 of each other for a win? I suppose in matches like this the draw odds would also be lower as the bookie realises that the chances of a draw are higher as well though...... Anyway 'thinking out loud' again... Bottom line - Has anyone played with a system like this? Someone must have... :rolleyes
  11. Well that explains that then! I'll never accuse Osesame of being a man who can't back up his opinions!! :eek On a serious note thanx for the stats - very interesting.
  12. Thanx Odds Odds - Once again I thank you for your help. I will go to Betfair as you suggest and self educate where I can although you have explained the principle of lay betting well enough for me to understand the basics. Now I shall try to read that link yougave me again on how the odds are worked and see if I understand more! >D Osesame - thanks for your advice too, although I am puzzled as to why you wouldn't touch X2 betting in the French 1st Division with the cover bet on 2 and the money maker on X? With lots of draws it seems a decent bet if you can take the home bankers out w
  13. Oh Crikey. Ok. Here goes. :o I hate sounding stupid. Firstly Odds and Mick - once again thanx for being unselfish with your time and answering queries. However Before I get into the complexities of calculating the odds / return when laying a bet I need to know the following.. What exactly IS 'laying' a bet. >D I thought the bookies layed bets with us - the punters. If we lay a bet - who do we lay it too? Back to the bookie? I just don't fully understand but would obviously like to, as making seperate bets on draws and aways is more time consuming than just 'laying a bet' in
  14. French League - Division 1 Thanks for the advice Osesame. Noticing as I was kept awake trawling through stats on the internet last night that the French 1st Division seems to have a lot of draws. Might try that one too as the bigger odds seem to be more on the draws than in the away wins. (Well in the games I would consider anyhow).
  15. Ok, even though I am still very new to the forum - those that have read some of my posts know I can go on a bit so please bear with another long winded ramble! :) After looking at a particularly interesting game between Troyes and Nice this midweek where the away team is 6/4 and the draw is 11/5 (see Worldwide League thread I started on this if your interested) I paricularly liked the look of an away result here - or at worst a draw. Noticing (as even a novice can do) that to cover both bets would still get me a nice profit I wondered if those experienced among you could give me the followin
