After Christmas bets

I have had some time off during the Christmas holidays and therefore time to share a few bets. The analysis in Chelsea vs West Ham was a big success and I had quite a few readers on that post. On Twitter I have had weaker results. The over 2.75 bet in Wolves vs Brentford resulted…

A novel sports betting dictionary

I have started to create a sports betting dictionary where my aim is to explain sports betting terms in a few words. Some are accompanied with longer explanations (but never exceeding 500 words) in separate posts. I haven’t come far yet, but I have at least explained some terms, including Asian handicaps, parlays, and void…

World Cup Doubles

If you bet small (as I usually do) Comeon offers a fine bonus where a 100 SEK (Swedish Krona) deposit becomes 500 SEK playable money as long as you turn over your 500 SEK eight times on doubles with accumulated odds at least 2.0. I took the opportunity to play small doubles almost for free…

Damallsvenskan: Bets from the opening round

It has been a while since I placed bets on the blog (I haven’t placed many bets at all recently to be honest). But now (or April 13, 2014) it is time for Damallsvenskan (the first football league for women in Sweden) and I think I have found bets with decent value. Damallsvenskan: Jitex –…

December snowball – 100 SEK

December is here and it is time for another snowball. I will start with 100 SEK (Swedish krona) and accumulate my first two bets. After that I take out 50% of the win after each bet. All bets will be placed at Pinnacle Sports and most picks will be purely based on statistics. As usual…

Euro bets

Europa league is hard to predict but I give it a chance today with three bets. I have placed 2 units in all of them (I have 4 units as max in a game) and my bets are: AZ Alkmaar – Shakhtar Karagandy: AZ to win both halves to 2.62 at MarathonBet Dagens Bästa Spel…

FC Basel tonight?

FC Basel have a very strong team and have done well in Europe and in the league the last couple of seasons. They have only lost once this season (at home to Zurich) and impressed heavily with a win away to Chelsea in the opening game of the Champions League group stage. For me they…

Bets from Spain

Three games will be played in Primera Division in Spain tonight and I have placed bets in two of them. Sevilla – Rayo Vallecano Sevilla have struggled in the opening games of the league.  With two points in five games they are placed bottom in the league. I have seen two of their games and…

The snowball – Continuation

Weeks ago I started a snowball just for fun. I took in-play bets on Bet365 and got wins every time. After a while, despite the very small initial wager, the snowball became rather big and now (September 22, 2013) I have survived 21 bets! I have written out the bets here, but continue with this…

A running snowball – Leyton Orient next

A few good and a few bad picks in my blogging-with-bets comeback yesterday. Importantly, Standard Liege did what they should and won easily. Therefore, my snowball is starting to grow really big. Next up is Leyton Orient FC, and if they do their job on Tuesday I will continue to update this blog post with my next…

Two bets today

It is certainly time to post bets again. Yesterday I posted a few on Twitter with good results. At the moment I have placed two bets today, this post might be updated later. Sunday bet 1 Hoffenheim vs B Mönchengladbach over 3.0 goals (Asian) at 2.24 (Pinnacle Sports) Both teams have played four league games…

SnowballOpen 3.0

Two hours to deadline for SnowballOpen 3.0. Please join! The more the merrier. SnowballOpen Bet 1: My first bet is Maribor (-1, Asian) away to Triglav at 1.375 at bet365. Initial wager is 100 SEK. There should be very large differences between the two teams and I believe that 1.375 is a good price for…

BK Häcken and Halmstads BK tomorrow

Tomorrow the second round of the Swedish Cup takes place with plenty of games to consider. I think I have found a double with great value with wins for two teams from Allsvenskan (BK Häcken and Halmstads BK) against teams in lower leagues. The first game is Nyköpings BIS at home to BK Häcken. Häcken…

Marseille-goals-Imbula.jpg

Marseille goals this season?

Olympique de Marseille finished second in Ligue 1 last season and will try to fight for the title together with PSG and perhaps Monaco and Lyon this season. They started well with a 3-1 win at home to EA Guingamp, but all the Marseille goals came early and – more importantly – they played very…

torns if

Torns IF in great form

GIF Nike – Torns IF I will take another bet in Division 2 Södra Götaland today. Torns IF from Stångby just outside Lund are in great shape. They won almost everything before the summer break and continued with an impressive win against Lindsdals IF after the break. Now they top the table and I believe…

A new football snowball

Let us try to get a new football snowball rolling. I take at maximum one game each day and will pick out 40% of the profit after each bet. With this strategy the snowball will not accumulate as quickly as if you accumulate the complete win and only cash out money after a fixed number…

Hammarby over?

Örgryte IS will play Hammarby IF on Monday and I take two early bets on over 2.5 goals in total and Hammarby over 1.5 goals. Looking at the statistics this is just stupid. Hammarby hardly never play goal rich games (only two out of fifteen games have ended in over 2.5 goals!) and Örgryte also…

Quito – Quevedo

Long time since I gave away a bet, but I think I have found a decent one. Deportivo Quito host Quevedo in Ecuador and I think that the home team will win here. The two teams met recently and Quevedo won then. But in that game Quito got a player sent off when they were…

Great value in Molde FK goals

Molde FK is one of the best teams in Tippeligaen in Norway (they have won the league the last two seasons), but have struggled so far this spring. They have started to find the net the last couple of games though and have had some descent results after their chock loss to Haugesund (1-5 at…
