BANK BUILDER v LONG SHOT TRIAL

genericfootball

I SET up this trial to prove to long-shot fan Lee that backing big accumulators wasn’t the way to go.

He challenged me to an experiment to see who could make a 20-point betting bank last longer and he’s the winner – so I’ll need to buy him a few beers.

So far the trial hasn’t proved him right because he has no winners out of five bets at odds of over 10-1. However, it has shown backing so-called bankers can also take you down a rocky road and on a tricky week I ended up with just one winner out of five.

If my bank had been healthy I’ve had sided with PSG but in the end went with Heerenveen at 3-4 and their 0-0 draw at Dordrecht wasn’t what anyone would have predicted.

The trial is starting again after Lee challenged anyone on the site to take him on. Anyone can do this and keep their own tally but I will post one person’s Bank Builder each day and whoever has most points at the end of February will win £50 of betting vouchers – £25 from Lee and doubled by the site.

Rules are simple. Post any tip stating the odds at any price for any sport and how many points you want on it. Please put the start time for the match or the event. Reasoning is welcome but not necessary.

Lee’s single or accumulator must be a minimum 10-1 and both will start with 20 points.

If you want to challenge Lee comment here on why you should get a chance to take part. I’ll pick one person tomorrow – entry deadline is 1pm and the contest will start on Sunday.

    Im up for the challenge Mr Fixit,been struggling lately to pick an accumulator but im confident I could pick out a Bank Builder each day with a high success rate…

    Making a return to the site after a month break due to loss of form. Would like a go at this becaue I think I’m *quite* good at picking out low odds winners, my Daily Evens Bet record prior to Christmas supports this. I believe I’ve found the perfect market for this and would like to highlight that market as an area for beating the bookies. As far as I’m aware it’s not used all that often on here.

      Granah, I’ll definitely consider you – I won’t be picking someone at random.

      BetVictor‘s lead anytime market. Never seen a tip on here with it in (albeit I’ve been gone a month), but made a good bit of money from it in the last week. Made me feel confident enough to return to the site and start tipping winners again. Can get decent odds for doubles/trebles with the market. Apologies if it’s pretty common knowledge on here now.

    Well, on a night when St.Mirren keep a clean sheet (first of the season) and Bayern get humped of a team they’ve beat 8 times in a row previously no wonder your banks dry mr.F. Its been one of those weeks, but I’m throwing my hat in the ring for this as I have recently started doing ‘challenges’ i.e £20 to £100 and been very successful. More successful than what I was doing before, trebles etc. My challenge strategy would be very different to yours as I only back goal markets and not the dreaded WDW market. So go on, gee us a shot and let me restore some faith in the old bank builder!

    i think i would be decent at giving him a run for his money….or beer tokens lol, all my coupons are trebles or lower and always have been, have a decent record with singles bets too. what does 1point represent? £10? cheers dar

      dar, 1pt is what you can afford – can be any amount. It will worked out on points not pounds.

  9. Willie McGuire 2 years ago

    Paul
    I’ll give ye 2 of my Kestrel :)

    Am up for the challenge – usually do accers of 4-6 teams but have failed miserably due to indiscipline when doing bank builders on over 0.5 goals in a match. Maybe a mythical test will improve my discipline!!!
    First bet – Arthurlies new manager to last longer than 2 months in charge :)

    Certainly up for it, any min odds for the singles or pretty much same deal as you had? Strictly football I’m assuming with it been on this thread

      Mr Fixit 2 years ago

      GAZ B, no minimum odds – it’s a bank builder but I’d suggest no shorter than 1-5. Can be any sport.

  14. Ryan 2 years ago

    I don’t mind giving this a try Mr F.

  17. Wyorkie11 2 years ago

    I’d be interested in those bets granah!!!

  18. Jordan 2 years ago

    Over the last few day/weeks I’ve had reasonable success building doubles/trebles with NBA bets of odds of anything from 1/2 and 1/5. 12 out of 14 winning markets since Sunday. I think if there was enough games I could land a 1/3 almost every night, which is why I’ve picked out what I think would be the lowest risk bets for tonights NBA games (posted in the US thread) just to see how my estimations come close. I’d be up for the challenge Mr F. If there was one tonight it would be in the NBA, Toronto Raptors Money Line @ 2/7 @ WillHill. Tip off 12:35AM (subject to delay because they’re American and they start when they want).

  19. Punting For Fun 2 years ago

    Been looking at different markets all day and i reckon the cards market and the corner markets and goals before or after a certain times are the best markets for value and i reckon you could get a decent bank builder doing these bets as you would be able to have more bets with your bank as well down to the decent odds you can get for corner and card markets.

    So i would be willing to put this theory on the line in the challenge with Lee.

    Had a trial run with the above markets and i was quite surprised at the success they had so i reckon i could get a few bets up and i reckon no more than 3 losses would be the worse i would achieve.

    Plus i have been keeping tabs on the bets/selections and since i have been doing this it is quite remarkable the amount that have came in also this gives a good idea of what your having more success at or not and then you can adjust the betting strategy to 1 of the others that you have in your arsenal.

  22. JFK 2 years ago

    I think versatility is actually the key to bank building. Don’t stick to the same markets. In one game I may pick a team draw no bet and in the next bet on the 2-3 goals band. Believing in your instincts and staying disciplined you can make a good fun sized profit. I actually learned all this on here so I’d like to have a go at it

    Id like a go at the beat the ‘general lee’ challenge because like lee i also hit the cross bar with my three/ four timers i.e beat by a 15/1 by a brest goal in the 94th minute to deny me.

  30. V P 2 years ago

    I think I should have a chance of doing it because I picked out a 15.88/1 longshot on the first day of this thread so picking selections below evens can’t be that difficult can it?

  31. Flickhead 2 years ago

    Mr F,i reckon you should pick me, as i had a terrible early childhood.My dad used to force me to go and watch Huddersfield Town with him.Now thats what i call abuse.
    Ive got to relive that nightmare today,thank god i’ll be in the away end.

    Big odds double afc telford at Grimsby at /1 on bet 365 doubled up with Newport at home to Shrewsbury 3/1
    Telford were unlucky against Grimsby mid week and are playing well under their new manager
    Newport solid at home
    Great priced double

  35. Dave 2 years ago

    Telford are 8/1 bet
    365 Newport 3/1 bet365
    2 point double

  36. Ellis 2 years ago

    Id like a go Mr F,

    I regularly post on the site Mr F, and i think my wide knowledge of different sports will be enough to prove Lee wrong and keep many people entertained.

    I have contributed widely to the site in the past, i even remember having my own £10-£1,000 thread in the past, which stimulated some attention on the site

    Would be nice to have a go!

  40. Woody 2 years ago

    Mr F. Had you challenged Lee with a Super Single approach, but not punting every day, which appears to dilute your effectiveness, you could prove Lee wrong over a period. If I’m lucky enough to earn the right to challenge Lee Ajax away to Vittess tomorrow would be my opening gambit. Cheers, Woody, Ellon

    Ps At Hampden to hopefully watch a great game and, equally hopefully, a Dons victory.

      Woody, I didn’t challenge him – he challenged me. There was a point to it and we’ll see what happens next. I also know punting every day on the bank builder isn’t the way to go but this is mythical betting – it’s just a an experiment and a bit of fun.
