This morning my balance was €33. Since we started off this month with €25 I decided to bet my €8 profit for the month this far. I looked at all tonight’s Carling Cup games and decided that the Liverpool, Arsenal double was the bet to go for. I placed the €8 bet on Betfair at combined odds of 2.43:
Leeds have an outstanding home record but I fancied Liverpool to do the business here, although it did take an og to win it for them. Arsenal also ran it tight enough, and didn’t score until 68 minutes into their game against West Brom. As soon as Arsenal went 2-0 up I immediately layed Liverpool to get back my initial stake of €8 (just incase).
I layed this at odds of 1.1 so I’ll drop 80 cents of my total profit, but I’d prefare to do this than risk Leeds scoring an injury time equaliser and end up with an €8 loss.
With my 80 cent loss on the lay and a profit of €10.87 after commission on the multiple bet, my net profit is €10.07. My balance is now €43.07 and I’ve bypassed the €40 target for the month I set myself in my weekly review a few days back.
I still have to bet €5.85 and €1 of which is a €1 accumulator bet on PaddyPower but I’m pretty happy with a total profit of €18.07 having bet €19.15 so far this month. It’s also nice to get back to winning ways after a few losses in a row. After today, I’m hoping I’ll be able to pass the €50 mark this month and double my money for the second month in a row.
