Well I am proving to be great at picking evens (or just higher) winners when I want them to lose. So far 7 out of 9 have won. This means a loss if one outsider then wins. This has only happened to me last night - Chelsea tut!!
Half way through I had the feeling that Chelski would lose and so bet on Newky.
Then it goes to 3-3 Aaaaaah! But then an injury time goal rescues me and I made £17.
Put it this way. The last 2 weeks of Multiples is paying for my holiday next month!
Well over onthe "other" forum they have found Sat offer and now the 5 fold is only going to 50% refund. This makes the offer more like a £5 a time. Which will probably not be worth it timewise.
I've been doing the multiples with 5 legs on 100% refund for some time. Always 15-20 quid profit in it. Betfair's shift from 100% to 50% refund has pretty much wiped this profit out. Shame really, it was nice and easy

I picked Veendam as my evens game which started at 6:45. Then 4 outsiders.
I am not really sure how the staged betting version works but I didn't do all the calcs as they were staggered ish games.
So the evens game starts and I then realise that there was no in-play on it and I hadn't layed it!!!
So I watch the game (well monitored the scores) on livescores. Still 0-0 at halftime (worried) but then they scored. Meanwhile one outsider goes 2-0 down good. Real Madrid stuck at 0-0 (I'm on the other team), PSV go 1-0 up (I'm on the other team) my last game stars much later at 9pm.
So after a bit of sweating my evens team hang on to 1-0. So I decide to back a bit of the team against Real in case they get a goal (was at 20 so only needed a fiver).
Then PSV conceed with 5mins left. Coz I have backed against Real even if they lose it could be corrected. But the draw holds. Real are held to a draw.
So I have 4 wins and one game left. The 5fold is worth £199 profit and if they lose I get the £50 refund. So I have bet on Oldhause or whatever it is for £8 at just over 20's so I now have locked in over £100 profit!!
But that was more gambling than matched betting. But I have been picking evens winners all week when I wanted losers. So maybe I was due one going my way.
I think I need to read up on proper staged betting and have a go tomorrow!
Odds poor today. I don't think I'll bother.
The sun is shining ish and maybe there is more to life (today at least).
Well the sun stopped shining but I didn't put a multiple on.
Today the horse racing multiple is back to £20 for 2 days £40 for 4.
I had a look and can't see too many low priced faves.
I will have lunch and decide whether I want to have a go at this this week.
Good luck to all
My wife says that matched betting is a gateway drug to gambling.
Well I just put a multi on the horses on and let the red-hot fave run it's course.
So now tomorrow's multiple will be to try to make most of my £20 loss back.
NOTE TO SELF: Stop gambling!!
