Over the last few weeks I’ve been thinking of a challenge that I could put together for GGT’s Twitter followers and website readers. A bet that I’ve had plenty of luck on in the past (in terms of rolling accumulators) is the over 0.5 goals challenge.
Simply put, you bet on a game to have 1 or more goal in it. As long as a goal is scored in the match you have bet on then it’s happy days… If it finishes 0-0 then it’s curtains.
I managed to avoid the dreaded 0-0 scoreline for 55 consecutive selections last year, turning £50 into just over £1000 betting on this market both pre game and inplay. I then split the £1k into 2 x £500 banks and tried again.
I’ve missed challenges like this, so here is my attempt at another. I will be combining the over 0.5 goals bet with some under 4.5, 5.5 or 6.5 goals bets as I see fit; hopefully hitting my target of £1000 and collecting before hitting a loss.
Feel free to join in! I will post selections on the spreadsheet below as well as my Twitter page. It’s a bit of fun that isn’t too expensive.. Hopefully the complete opposite!
All bets will be placed with Betfair, who generally offer much better odds on the markets I’ll be using. The full available betting bank will be staked on every selection (as long as liquidity allows). Let’s see where this goes!
If you’re thinking of joining in with me make sure you come over to the GGT Twitter page and we can cheer on our bets together.. Hopefully counting the cash too.
If you don’t yet have a Betfair account it’s well worth getting one. Aside from being able to bet on things to lose (laying) Betfair have many more strings to their bow. They have now integrated a standard sportsbook on the site so if you’ve placed a bet at any online bookie you’ll be at home instantly. You’ll also get a £50 free bet just for joining.
Let’s get this acca rolling.. Trust me it doesn’t take long to really start adding up!
