Right, I have wrapped up my tennis betting for the season after a shambolic day thanks to Ginepri, Mahut and Ferrer. I have withdrew most of my funds and left £234.54 in my account. With this money I am going to try the 1+ goal challenge which I saw on the betfair forum. It involves betting on a football match which will have 1 goal or more. Of course this will never get you a long term profit as it inolves backing very low odds and its basically just a case of dodging bullets.....but its only a bit of fun and I am going to see how far I go.

Others can join in the challenge if you want. :p

Bet 1 - Ispwich vs Colchester. £234.54 @ 1.05 profit - £11.73?????
Jaap, with all due respect, WTF are you doing? 1/20? I know it's only one goal you need, but still.

Cancel that bet if you can and put it on Barca tonight at at least 8/13 or even double up on Arsenal and Sevilla at 1/5 a piece.

As I said, its only a bit of fun. It involves backing low odds and I will eventually come unstuck, whether its on bet 1 or bet 54. I will roll on the profits and stake on from each bet and see how far I can go. It isn't a long term strategy though.

Jaap this is so risky mate, especially lower division matches, were bore draws occur more frequently.
The English lower leagues usually have a lot of goals. Games involving Colchester have averaged almost 4 a game this season and games involving Ipswich have averaged 3.1 goals a game. So hard seeing there not being a goal tonight, but this is football. All you can do is look at stats and find the games most likely to have a goal.

That's what I'm saying, you know that you will lose out sooner or later, be it tonight or 100 matches from now, so what's the point?

You can turn that £200+ into 1k in a few days if you play sensible. You're just throwing away the money for no purpose. Good luck with it, but I don't understand why you're doing it when you know that the end result will leave you with zero.

Oh I will bank some money if I do go on a run. Maybe if I double my stake, I will bank the original stake. Long way to go for that though.

I do agree with what you're saying, but its just a spare £200 odd that I have in my account and if I lose it, I lose it but hopefully I will have a decent run.
