Re: Football for the season 2019-20

Yeah, even I haven't created a special spreadsheet just to facilitate me entering fractional odds! :lol

Somehow 13/8 is better than 2.625 but I wonder if some bookies round it up to 2.63 if you go decimal? I'm going to have a look. Maybe I'll consign fractional odds to the dustbin of history.

Re: Football for the season 2019-20

Only 2 bets for the 4-6 cards bets today so just doing the double. In Spain and Portugal we have games at Pacos de Ferreira at 6/5 and Sociedad at 21/10. For some reason I'm predisposed to always type 21/10 instead of 21/20 which is the actual odds. Maybe it's time to give up the fight and go decim...

Re: Football for the season 2019-20

3 games in Spain tonight and the prospect of penalties look good in all 3 to me. I've bought the penalty goal minutes at an aggregate price of 49 taking best price with each form. I've also done the penalty taken trixie at odds of 7/4 in the Mallorca game and 9/4 in the other 2, again with Hills. No...

Tondela v FC Porto 19:15

Red Card @ 7/2
I second the sentiment having had a look at the ref stats. I also like the prospect of the expulsion tool being brandished in the game at Besiktas and have taken that at 3/1 with a small bet on the double across both games. All with Hills.

Re: Football for the season 2019-20

There are 10 selections today so I've put them into doubles but will also note how they perform to level stakes. All selections are 4-6 cards shown in the game with Hills, with red cards counting as one card (and a second yellow leading to a red counting as just a single card). All staked as 15 poi...

Re: Football for the season 2019-20

Been crunching some numbers today in terms of my paper trade spread sells to see how the bookings spread relates to the number of cards in the game. In a nutshell, the suggestion is that if the spread price falls within a certain range then the chances of there being between 4-6 cards shown is great...

Blank day yesterday capped by missing a winner on the late Portuguese game because it wasn't quite as late as I thought it was! *, Was going to back red card and was looking to see if Hill's 9/4 could be beat only for the game to have already kicked off. Oh well, that'll teach me to be a bit more or...

Gone for a penalty in the late Spanish game between Sevilla and Eibar, bought pen goal mins at 16 with SPIN (11 + 5 for each team beats 17 for the total) and backed one to be taken at 5/2 with 365. Ref's stats not encouraging for this season but were in the previous 2 and has shown one in one of his...

Re: Chess Chat

After a couple of wins by me to put a slightly more respectable gloss on the scoreline, Kenbo lands the victory he needed to deservedly clinch the series 10 - 6. I don’t think that score flatters him based on our respective performance over those 16 games but I’d like to think it’s not an indication...

Burnley v Sheffield U: McBurnie anytime at 16/5. Only place not sub 3/1 and seems like a reasonable bet to me.

I did actually buy his total goals pre-season and the spread will be covered if he nets his 6th today.

Re: Chess Chat

Definitely lost a couple of games I should've won (not least the one where I missed an opportunity for checkmate before spectacularly self combusting) and should really have won tonight so maybe 7-6 would be a fairer reflection. No argument though that your game has improved and you're doing better ...

As for paper trades, I've just had a marathon session updating several day's results into the spreadsheet.
