Noticed a few gambling comments through poker and football, especially now the season has started again.
So anyone made any money on the footy or sorts this weekend? Or even lost?
Or any tips?

Personally I dont fancy spurs to go well this year, maybe look at everton to do well, and Man Utd to come closer than last year with handicaped betting. But really carnt see chelsea not winning again. Back WBA for the championship aswell.
Got me a feeling on UTD in the champions league aswell this year.

- Warning gambling is only to be done by the those of weak mind,
and bets should only be made with funds you cannot really afford to lose.

yep just put a ton on tiger too win at 1.55 which is a steal as he has never lost when in the lead or joint lead on the final day.

carnt bring myself to go green against tiger though!
Everytime the other players jsut fall by the side, he has a few shots lead the over of the rest of pack and I dont see donald holding his nerve in a 1 on 1.
Tiger is a machine man, he focus and gets the job done.

if anyone placing a bet on the chelsea v city game, would go for over 4.5 card, both teams had a very high amount of bookings last season, and bennett is one of the strictest refs

I would always say betfair.
Better odds, and you can sell off your bet(lay it) before an event even finished.

Its not like betting, its more like playing stocks and shares with sports Eye-wink

betfair is good for exchange bettin and usually has the best odds.
if u want a traditional bookies then i would go for bet365, has a good and easy to use layout and has a very large amount of markets.

make sure u look out for the offers getting free money when opening an account

ive got enough riding on old tiger, nerves couldnt take it.

Just stuck a little on Segio and Micheel at high odds, hoping they make a run and sell it off as i still fancy tiger.
Also bet on Big Phil for 2nd place.

No real risks :

Phil Mickelson @ 1.66
Geoff Ogilvy @ 1.90
Tiger Woods @ 1.44

Gone for a treble paying out at 4-1
