Eye of the Tiger Newbie Blog – 17th June

Ah cash out time, my favourite bit. The £10 free bet token has been credited to my Mcbookie account so off to Oddsmatcher it is. Darren told me that whilst McBookie is not listed it is actually a sister site of Jenningsbet so selecting that gave me all the odds I needed and I plummed for this one.

Back the draw in the South Africa v New Zealand game at odds of 5.50 with the free £10
Lay it on Betfair with £7.69 at odds of 5.90. The liability was £37.68 and this added another £7.31 risk free profit to the pot.

Time for another then, the £25 free bet at Stan James looks good and we found this one over in Uruguay.

As luck would have it, 2 of my favourite Uruguayan teams, Nacional (Uru) v Palmeira, were playing !! No you are right, I have never heard of them, maybe Oddsmatcher should become part of the National Curriculum in all schools as it would certainly help today’s kids with their Maths and Geography!

Anyway the bet was:

Back Palmeiras with £25 at 2.88 at Stan James
Lay Palmeriras with £24.74 at 2.96 at Berfair, using £48.49 from the account and securing the next £25 freebie for a £1.50 loss.

So where are we now, £41.29 up overall and a free £25 bet to come.

We should break the £50 barrier tomorrow from just our first 5 bookmakers, not bad for a beginner.

Total Profit: £41.29

Both bets from yesterday have settled and both lost so my Betfair balance is on the rise.

I emailed McBookie to to claim the free £10 and my free £25 bet was sat in Totesport so this looked a good one in the Sweden U21 v Belarus U21 game.

Back Draw at 3.50 with the free £25.00 at Totesport
Lay Draw at 3.80 with £16.67 on Betfair.  The liability was £46.68 so we had plenty to spare in Betfair and we have made another £15.83 profit!

No sign of the free bet from north of the border yet so that will have to wait for tomorrow but we have smashed the £35 profit barrier and only cashed out 3 bets!

Total Profit: £35.48

No time for me to do anything PC wise at the weekend so I was back onto the money making trail.

A quick email to Darren and he suggested McBookie (free £10) and Totesport (free £25) next, so off to Oddsmatcher then….

Spain U21 v Germany U21

Back Germany at 3.20 for £10 at McBookie
Lay Germany at 3.35 with £9.70.  £22.800 tied up in Betfair and just a 79p loss for the free £10.

You do need to email these guys after the bet has settled so that is from McBookie today then.

So straight onto Totesport and more unknown teams!

Start v Molde

Back Start at 2.30 with £25
Lay Start at 2.38 with £24.68 on Betfair.  Liability £34.04 and the free £25 for a loss of £1.56.

If you like a losing day today as I am £2.35 down but when you think about it I have £35 in free bets to come, so in effect I have bought £35 in bets for £2.35, seems like a bargain to me!

Total Profit: £19.65

Time to cash out at Paddypower. Some great team names I have never heard of coming up in Oddsmatcher, but it is the profit figure I am interested in so the teams don’t matter!

This match was Kolding FC v Lyngby in the Danish First Division.

Back Draw at 3.40 with the free £25.00 at Paddypower
Lay Draw at 3.85 on Betfair with £15.79. The liability on Betfair for this bet was £45.00, and netting me £15 profit in the process.

Out for the night but back home to check the results, not that it effects the profit, but so I know when the cash has ended up, no draw so an extra £15 in Betfair, hurrah!

So day 2 of the challenge and already £22 up, I like, I like!

Total Profit: £22.00

Let’s start with a couple of bookmakers I have heard of Ladbrokes and Paddypower plus Darren had said the free bets are instant credited so we could be in profit on day one, marvellous!

Anyway Oddsmatcher threw up these initial bets so this is what I did.

Back England v Andorra at 1.01 for £10 at Ladbrokes
Lay England at 1.02 on Betfair with £10.41. My liability on Betfair was just 21p, nice!

Giving an overall loss of 11p but a free £10 bet to come.

I immediately checked my account and the free tenner had been instantly credited (just like the man said!)

OK Oddsmatcher again, remembering from what I read on the site, that when dealing with stake not returned offers we need higher odds selections.

Back Finland v Russia at 5.00 for the free £10
Lay Finland at 5.00 with £8.08. My liability on Betfair was £32.32 for a £7.68 profit and still enough in the pot to get the next bet on.

I liked the look of this one….

Back FC Brasov v Poli Timisoara at 2.50 for £25 at Paddypower
Lay FC Brasov at 2.48 on Betfair with £25.72. This tied up £38.07 in Betfair but secured the free £25 bet (again instantly credited) for just 57p!

I was now running too low on funds in Betfair to cash out that night so that will have to wait until these have settled but I am already £7 in profit with a free £25 bet in the bag too, maybe it really is that easy.

Total Profit: £7.00
