With less than 3 weeks until football finally returns, I have been thinking of a bit of a challenge to see whose team can justify the support that we give them! The simplest challenge would be to just back your team each match but that seemed a bit boring so the challenge that I have concocted is as follows:
Each user who wants to take part chooses their team. Ideally this will be the team that you support (so for me that will be the mighty Arsenal) but if you don't follow a team or you support S**rs then please feel free to pick anyone! To start a £5 bet will be placed on your team to win the first game of the season. From this point on, every competitive match that your team plays, you place half of your remaining pot on your team to win for every game of the season.
For example Arsenal start the season away to Everton and win odds at BF are currently 2.44. If we win then my pot will be £11.85 so for the following game I place a £5.93 bet. If they fail to win then my pot is £0 and I place a £5 bet.
Looking at last seasons statistics I reckon this method would have netted me about £30 profit for the season although at peaks the pot would have been almost £400!!
This is all for a bit of fun and to show our loyalties to our teams. You can place bets wherever you like to take advantage of best odds or to help with a WR etc.
I will probably post my results once a week and would be great if anyone else is interested in joining in! I will try and keep a summary in this first post of teams and if people supply me with it, current pots.
