Right everyone i have came up with a little something to bring us together. The tipping comp is one for all and all for one battling eachother to come out on top.....
This is different, here we come together and try and find a winning bet to "beat the bookie"
This probably wont be everyones cup of tea as here we are dealing with doubles and those doubles are on over/under markets.
There will be one double placed every weekend from the premiership from the start until the end of the season (if we dont go broke) This weekend to get things underway we will use the opening set of fixtures in the championship, but after that will be the premiership!
The idea how this works is Everyone (who wants to take part) gives there selection for every game in the league that weekend, over 2.5 goals or under 2.5 goals. You have to NAP one of your selecions and NB one of your selections.
Once everyone has gave their picks i will add up the totals, NAP's get 3pts and NB's get 2pts all other selections 1pt. the 5 with the highest number of votes will go to a vote (every friday) once the vote is up you have to pick 2 selections from the 5 and whichever 2 have the most votes come sat afternoon will be our double to "beat the bookie"
There is a bank of £50 for this and will be placing £10 doubles, if we have 5 losing bets so be it challenge over. I will be looking to move up stakes in increments of £15, £20, £25 and this will be done when we have 10 units. So we start of with £10 doubles and if we get our bank up to £150 we start with £15 doubles
Any profit at the end of the season will be split equally amongst everyone who took part, or we could use it as added prize money in a poker tourny (not sure if everyone plays poker)
Its just abit of fun and if we lose the £50 so be it it is hardly going to bankrupt me.
This weekends fixtures are below, please put your picks for each game and remember to put NAP and NB in 2 of your selections....
Cardiff vs Scunthorpe: Unders
C Palace vs Plymouth: Unders
Derby vs Peterbro: Overs
Leicester vs Swansea: Overs
Preston vs B City: Unders
QPR vs Blackpool: Unders
Reading vs N Forest: Unders NB
Sheff Wed vs Barnsley: Unders
Watford vs Doncaster: Unders
West Brom vs Newcastle: Overs NAP
Coventry vs Ipswich: Overs
NAP: 8 out of the last 10 beween these 2 sides has ended over 2.5 goals. This fixure was of course played in the premiership last season and it was 2-1 to newcastle after just 9 mins (finished 2-3)
NB: Not a history of goals here with the last 5 metings ending under 1.5 goals never mind 2.5. 8 of the last 9 have been under 2.5 goals, with a massive 7 of those 8 under 1.5 goals. Think these 2 sides will cancel eachother out on the opening day and fancy a 0-0 draw. unders looks a decent shout
Get your picks in by thursday night if you can and that leaves all day friday and saturday morning for the vote
