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.
