Here we go again...first bet of the season will be on the comunity shield, i`m not usually too keen on betting friendlies but the odds look appealing to me today.
Man U have been involved in two draws in the last two seasons with Portsmouth and Chelsea...I hate betting on the draw though so will lay Chelsea. Also I think Man U are value at 3.25 against ANY team so a small bet on a Man U win too.
Last couple of seasons I have staked the american way where if a selection is odds on you stake to win the specified units...this was just because when I first posted this was the fellas forum and frequented mainly by americans, as this is no longer the case I will now stake the english way....units specified will be units staked whether odds on or odds against.
Sunday 9th August
2* Lay Chelsea at 2.6 (same as backing Man Utd +0.5 at aprox 1.62)
1* Man Utd at 3.25
I have actually staked 3.2 units to win 2 units on the lay of Chelsea which looks like i`m contradicting myself with my staking explanation...I would normally have written this as 2* Man Utd +0.5 but that bet is not available on Betfair.
Good luck to all with your bets this season....looks like I will have some company/competition this year...looking forward to it enormously £££
