Weekly Betting Review
Yet again we begin our weekly betting review with news of an overnight after deadline payout, thanks to our ability to pick a PGA Tour each way winner. Luke Donald (16/1) held strong for a fine third place finish, which was all the more impressive as the RBC Heritage was only paying out to four places.
But unfortunately for us things took a nose dive shortly after, whilst it was a fantastic and widely celebrated achievement by Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson in winning a twentieth league title. The result was met with scorn from us, following a loosing Rooney Wincast, fortunately due to poor odds a Benteke score bet was ditched; though anyone who was brave enough would have bagged enhanced odds of 14/1 on a RVP hat-trick from Paddy Power.
Whilst a last minute change of heart had saved us a couple of quid with Benteke, changing from Muller to Gomez for a first person to score bet had us fuming on Tuesday. Our bad luck with acca’s rolled over from last week as well with disappointing results from our win treble and goal rush bets, Paddy Power nailed another enhanced odds bet with a Muller Wincast.
Weak and wounding from the beating we were getting from the bookies, we only opted for an Ozil anytime scorer bet and for the third time we ignored Paddy Powers enhanced odds bets at our peril. Our bet tanked as another German club completely outclassed another Spanish giant for the second night running; but Paddy Power nailed it again with a 5/1 Lewendowski wincast.
It probably wasnt the best time to chose our PGA bets but we were convinced our luck was about to change, as Keegan Bradley looked a safe bet and Jacobson a decent outsider, especially with Stan James paying out to six places; unfortunately they were out of the running by the end of play on Friday.
Our losing streak continued long through the week with us backing one of the few enhanced odds bets offered by Paddy that didn’t pay out on the Europa League, followed by another losing win treble and both teams to score bet on Saturday.
This week we placed £110 on football bets and £20 on golf.
Including the cash we won on last weeks golf, as it missed the Sunday deadline, we had returns of £105.
Weekly Outcome: £25 loss
