    Default GOLIATH bet, how much should I win?

    Could someone please tell me how much I stand to win from this bet? I just used an online bet calculator to try and work it out and I dispute it.

    It's a Goliath bet, and so far I have got 5 out of 7 correct selections, with 1 match still to come tomorrow night.

    Stake Per Line: £0.05
    Number of Lines: 247
    Total Stake Paid: £12.35


    WON

    1.) Bolton v Man Utd
    Man Utd @ 2/5

    2.) Real Madrid v Getafe
    Real Madrid @ 1/10

    3.) Heracles v Ajax
    Ajax @ 1/2

    4.) Norwich v West Brom
    West Brom @ 9/5

    5.) Werder Bremen v Hamburg
    Werder Bremen @ 8/13

    LOST


    6.) Real Sociedad v Barcelona
    Barcelona @ 1/6

    7.) Palermo v Inter
    Inter @ 11/10

    PENDING

    8.) QPR v Newcastle
    Newcastle @ 19/10
    The Online Bet Calculator I used said that I would get

    £34.97 - If Newcastle win tomorrow
    £8.66 - If Newcastle don't win tomorrow

    But I remember seeing that if I got all 8/8 correct I would have won £150 or something, so I don't get why 8/8 correct = £150 and 5/8 (if Newcastle do lose) = £8.66

    Surely it must be wrong?

    Unfortunately for you, I don't think they're wrong.

    The case is, with 5 wining selections, you have only 26 winning lines (10 doubles, 10 trebles, 5 4-folds and 1 5-fold); at 0.05 stakes per line,

    Thankyou for your reply it's very much appreciated.

    I don't know whether this is my inexperience and amateur level of gambling showing here, but I think I am personally better off doing GOLIATH bets
