    This weeks bet

    I’m not a serious gambler(as you will see with my 2 bets)

    I do it for a laugh, I’ve been getting closer lately, but I don’t expect to win.

    Anyway here’s my 2 accumalator bets for the week,

    From Eastwoods.

    Ballymena 1 / 2
    Glentoran 4/9
    Portadown 2/5
    Dortmund 4/6
    FC Zwolle 1 / 2
    RKC Waalwijk 4/11
    PSV 4/11
    Standard Liege 1 / 2

    £5 stake pays out £105.76

    My other bet, which is a lot more ambitious.

    Chelsea 1/6
    Man Utd 1/8
    Newcastle 10/11
    Wolves 4/5
    Leeds 4/7
    Leyton Orient 8/13
    Tranmere 8/13
    Hereford 4/7
    MK Dons 1/2
    Celtic 1/7
    Dundee 2/5
    Raith Rovers 4/9

    £5 stake gets back £503.76

    What are your weeks bets?

    Bookie's generally overprice favourites so that punters will put them in accumulators and therefore they try to trick the punter.

    Really? I'd have thought that the bookies would be far less concerned about the type of punter who bets 5/10 quid on a 154/1 accumulator which comes through far less often than 1 in 154 times than they would be concerned about the kind of punter who puts 5 or 10 grand on a single bet on an odds on favourite.

    Overpricing favourites to lure in punters on wild accumulators will also bring in punters who bet thousands on short-priced favourites.

    Which bet do you want to pay out?

    Just Singles if I see a team at odds that are wrong in my opinion, I bet then.
