    Betting Advice

    I placed a few little bets before the world cup and now I'm a couple of games a way from a little bit of money but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what bet I could do and how much to put on it so I deffo make a profit.

    Bets placed before the world cup:

    Holland & Spain final - £2 @ 22/1 = £46
    Uruguay & Spain final - £1 @ 150/1 = 151

    So basically I deffo have one of them in the final out of Uruguay and Holland but I would be relying on Spain to beat Germany, what would you recommend I do? Should I back Germany to beat Spain or something to make sure I get profit?

    you should hedge your bet with a germany holland final, as thats whats going to happen, Germany will kill Spain after that preformance tonight

    I'd bet on any team not including Fernando Torres.

    What's with all the top players not performing?

    i,e, Messi, Rooney, Torres etc...

    Personally I'd leave well alone with different bets like the one above as they could all lose.

    You could lay your 2 bets.

    holland v Spain is 13/8 atm
    Spain v Urugauy is 15/2 atm on betfair

    I think I'd just go with what you've got, we are that close now that the odds are just to low to do anything IMO. Fingers crossed for you, that was a great call for before it even started. :thumbsup:

    Spain are actually favourites on betfair atm. Both either side of evens.

    Got to be grudgingly impressed with Germany today, they where excellent

    I think I'll wait and see how the Holland v Uruguay game goes, if Uruguay win I'd probably put quite a bit on germany to beat spain and still walk away with £100 either way, that's the dream.

    Easy profit here

    Holland & Spain final - £2 @ 22/1 = £46
    Uruguay & Spain final - £1 @ 150/1 = 151

    wait for Holland uruguay game to finish, decides which bet is valid

    then put half your return on Germany to qualify at about evens

    holland - +£23 if spain win, +£23 if Germany win
    Uruguay - + £75 if spain win + £75 if germany win

    simples!

    Seen as Holland got through I decided I would just let the Spain game run and hope they won, £46 off a £2 bet isn't bad

    imagine if you were a real man and planted a grand on anything other than Holland/Spain final because you thought it was a "certainty"

    Then you would be a faggot

    I know plenty of people who put little bets on like that. I think at the end of the day the OP has like a 2000% profit on his original stake.

    Good work pal!

    I bet with £2 stakes at times, but aren't a tramp or oap. In fact about £500 up today by doing it and over a grand on the world cup.

    I actually spread out £50 worth of bets before the tournament and have bet over £200 during it, made about £300 profit so far. I would like to see you weirdowoss put £50 each way on the 2 finalists before the world cup had begun.

    but you see, some people are thick and don't understand how to bet successfully. They just think you have to blindly put large amounts on to win. The type of people who still use a bookies for every bet, who play the machines in the bookies, and start shouting 'that jockey is crap' after a virtual race has ran.
