Latest standings (settled bets in brackets): Mark £1271.30 (12), Chris £750 (6)

MARK TALBOT’S still in the driving seat in the head-to-head tipster challenge.

Mark of Manchester placed six bets and looked in trouble when his first four were losers. But his big single, £350 on over 1.5 goals at Ajax, came in at 4-7 to win £550. And he had £110 on over 2.5 goals at B M’gladbach v Lazio to win £110.

So he finished the day just slightly down but still more than £500 in front of Chris Ford who has put his full £750 on Bayern Munich at 1-3 away to Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga tonight. By the way all four of the best Chris originally posted yesterday but cancelled were loser.

So will it be all over – or game on. Find out later.

We need full names for this contest so anyone whose full name isn’t listed below could you please send it as a comment.

I posted up the rules previously but just to make sure everything is in order and easy to follow I’ve re-capped them below again.

  • All players will start their games with a mythical £1,000 betting fund and you can stake from £50 to £1,000 on any football bet provided Ladbrokes have priced it up.
  • Stakes have to be quoted as do all prices and they have to be Ladbrokes‘ odds. If you’re backing an accumulator please provide the individual odds as well the combined odds. Perms are not allowed. In-running bets are not allowed. And bets must only be on football.
  • You can bet on any football market provided by Ladbrokes but winnings won’t be allocated if no price is quoted. All tips must be posted before the start of the relevant event, for example by 2.59pm for a 3pm kick-off.
  • Each person must over the course of the week-long contest must place a minimum of 20 bets so the £1,000 stake is utilised. This is to prevent a contestant sitting on his pot. Minimum take £50.
  • Single or accumulated odds must be 1-4 or above.
  • You cannot copy exactly the same bet as your opponent. You can however include the same bet in an accumulator that includes at least one different selection. A bet can’t be cancelled once it’s posted unless part or all of the bet is a non-runner, for example a first-scorer pick doesn’t start or one game in an acumulator is postponed.
  • The winner will be the person who has accumulated most winnings, including stakes, by the deadline for the tie. But if one of the players loses his £1000 pot before the deadline his opponent will be declared the winner. Winnings can be staked so if your pot increases above £1,000 you have that money to play with. Stakes will be included in winning bets.
  • In the unlikely event of a draw in any of the tipping head to heads there will be a tiebreak contest to decide the winner.
  • All bets must have been settled by the close of the competition, i.e. by 23:59 on the Sunday evening otherwise the bet will be declared void.
  • In the event of any disputes Mr Fixit’s decision will be declare void.

Although there are prizes up for grabs please remember this is also a bit of fun.

      Chris, just updating the contest as I usually do. I had real Bale money in my pocket too – pity you didn’t the double in the contest even for £50.

  2. Craig alves 5 years ago

  3. mark talbot 5 years ago

      Mark, I had a wee feeling you’d target the Bayern game. Good luck to both of you. Now Chris wants a nervy 1-0 win.

    I would have put £50 on Paul if I haden’t stupidly tied my money up last nite on Bayern. Couldn’t have been asking to cancel more bets now lol.

      Chris, what’s with the digs? You’re in the contest and I’m not. You seem to be digging me up for saying you had four losers but I’m just reporting what happened in the contest that day.

  6. mark talbot 5 years ago

    Bet 16. £200 treble all games over 2.5 goals. Dordrecht v go ahead eagles 2/5. Top OS’s v de graafschap 4/9. Maastricht v cambuur 1/2. Returns £604.80.

  7. Chris Ford 5 years ago

    Not digging geezer it’s just banter 😉 thin line between reporting / mocking.

    I know your not in the comp Paul, bet your glad as well as neither of us can hit a winner just now lol. Glad I don’t do it for a living

      Chris, saying you’re in digging mood I made money on Thursday thanks to Bale and on Wednesday with the draws. If was in the contest I wouldn’t be doing anything but singles and I’d have taken Bale and Anzhi last night, both of which I tipped here.

  8. Chris Ford 5 years ago

    Good luck with all your bets tonight Mark lad. Hope we get an exciting weekend out this mate

  9. Chris Ford 5 years ago

    Mr fix it can I perm a bet for later on? Obv pending the outcome of the Bayern game? If I lose its all over anyway….I’m in the Lake District just now so struggle for Internet signal….need to get my finger out and place some bets. I actually mistaked the Bayern game for being on last night…..I’ve tied my money up for 2days now like a twat.

      Chris, there are no perms allowed. But you can posts bets that are allowed in the rules before Bayern is finished if you are struggling to get them over. Obviously if Bayern don’t win it’s all over anyway.

  10. Chris Ford 5 years ago

    Sorry meant to say *place not perm, there’s a game I’m interested in after Bayern is finished. So do I place the bet when Bayern has kicked off?


  11. Chris Ford 5 years ago

    May not have signal later on so if Bayern lose I’m out anyway…..and congratulations to mark.

    But if Bayern win here’s Bets 8 and 9

    (BET 8) £600 single

    Jaguares de Chaipas v Tijuana BTTS @ 4/5

    (BET 9) £399

    Jaguares v Tijuana

    Tijuana @ 5/4

  12. Chris Ford 5 years ago

    *BET 8

  13. Chris Ford 5 years ago

    Paul are these bets ok/allowed? Not sure of the rules mate


  14. Craig alves 5 years ago

      Craig, it’s game on again, will update in a bit. More interesting with it going to the weekend.

  15. Badham 5 years ago

    What league are these two in? Jaguares v Tijuana

    I like to keep a look out.

    • Profile photo of Mr Fixit Author
      Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      Badham, Mexican Premier League and after Bayern’s win these bets are now on. So again he’s all or nothing, although I don’t get the £399 bet instead of £400.

  16. Badham 5 years ago

    Hahaha made me laugh that. Cheers Paul.
