I WAS right about one thing – Lee's struggling to put up a long-shot winner.

However, I didn't expect to post two losers at my first two attempts on the bank builder.

All it proves is there are no certainties and it's a good reason to stick to level stakes. I only wanted a Reading goal but in general they were in short supply on Tuesday and the Royals couldn't manage one – even against 10 men for 45 minutes.

Lee put up a 10-1 losing double on Bolton v Birmingham but has lost just two points to my 13 so I'll need to be careful over the next few days.

Yesterday I challenged people to put up a winner at odds of over 10-1 and two people managed to do it. They were Luke who went for Ghana, Lazio and Dover at 10-1 and buick81 who chose draws at Sheffield Wednesday and Millwall at 11-1.

Instead of picking a winner at random I'm asking them both to predict the time of the first goal at Sheffield Utd-Spurs tonight. Closest to the correct time will win the £20 betting voucher – please post before kick-off time in minutes and seconds. If only one person posts a time he will be the winner.

Meanwhile, my day 3 Bank Builder is Juventus to win at Parma in the Italian Cup. It's a five-point so I don't go bust.

Lee is on Ivory Coast to beat Cameroon and Mali to see off Guinea in the African Nations Cup plus a draw at Sheffield Utd v Spurs.

    It looks like Luke and buick81 were the only longshot winners yesterday, although I haven’t checked every post. Just shows how difficult it is.
    Here is mine for today:

    Under 2.5 goals in games at:
    Atletico Madrid

    Over 2.5 goals in games at:
    Sporting CP

    5 fold @ 14/1

    Just wanna see how it would work out put several ‘safer’ bets together and seeing how that’s works.

    Spurs DNB
    Barcelona + 1
    Ivory Coast DNB


  8. Jack 4 years ago

    In the spirit of the thread though:

    Ivory Coast -1 (4/1 is a cracking price when you think that if Cameroon are losing they have to throw everyone forward)
    Barcelona (same story if it’s a draw Atletico have to throw everyone forward)

    William Hill @ 18.8/1

    • Mr. Orange 4 years ago

      Dolky why don’t you use level stakes mate? I have seen you posting different stakes several times, no need to put your last money all on one bet. You can do 5 bets of 15

      Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      dolky, just back from usual morning chores. Seven of the last eight meetings between Atletico and Barca have gone under 2.5 goals. Tough call tonight.

  16. dolky69 4 years ago

    Mr orange.when u say level stakes u mean £15 on evens to win £15
    Or £10 on 11/10 to win £11.if u only new how unlucky I am I wanted 1 goal in derby game last night for £100 and benfica let me down for load had them on 2 bets .show me wat tile of level stakes u do an I give it a
    Try thsnks for your help.

  17. Jamie 4 years ago

    Dolky mate level stakes isn’t just for evens bets it just means putting the same amount on every bet you place no matter what the odds.

  18. Ian Menzies 4 years ago

    I see goals in the Sheffield Utd vs. Spurs match, with both teams to score @ 5/6.

    I also really like the price for Athletico Madrid to win either half @ 5/4.

    Elsewhere, Juventus -1 @ 10/11

    Treble pays 6.88/1!

  19. Mr. Orange 4 years ago

    It’s like Jamie says Dolky. I always try to get an even money bet and use the same stake on every one of them.

  20. Dazzler 4 years ago

    1st goalscorers (pending team news)
    Kane (spurs) scored 1st 3/5 away games
    Pogba (juve) scored 1st in the last 2
    @ 23

    Barca and btts
    Think Barca have to much for Atletico but the last team to score against Barca was Atletico, and they need to score tonight.

    Spurs and btts
    4/5 last spurs games see btts. Sheffield have scored in their last 4/5 home games and they need to score tonight. Only spurs player definitely out tonight is Chadli, so shots should have enough quality to get the win.

    Juve -1
    There’s 40 points between these two teams already and Juve are scoring for fun right now. Juve have won their 4/5 aways by 2+.

      Luke, I can’t do the 50-50 because the voucher may be a £20 so just give me a time. It’s much the same as a coin toss which was the alternative. If you think it will 0-0 put up 89:59.

    Been a follower of the blog for a while, this comp only adds to the diversity of it. I would say I am a bank builder. Short odds, high stakes.

    Been testing different methods was going singles, even though I was up found that I wasn’t gaining much so now go for short odds double- I try to get this as near to evens as possible

    Just finding my way, any suggestions would be good?
