Must admit mate it's one of those things that's just never appealed to me. Nothing at all wrong with it, just a personal thing. Do have the occasional pub bet with friends but very rarely these days tbh. Like a lot of people I did the matched betting thing taking advantage of all the new member freebies-----must have accounts with 50 bloody companies or more-----to get the guaranteed money but once the introductory offers are used up haven't used the accounts.mkhammer wrote: ↑Sun Oct 06, 2019 10:20 amYeah in some kinda perverse way backing us to lose makes some weird sorta logic...Whiskyman wrote: ↑Sat Oct 05, 2019 3:33 pm
Now that makes sense. Didn't think about checking the available odds myself.
And about professional gamblers, don't know if it's true or not but I've heard of a bloke who supports West Ham who, the day Avram Grant was appointed, staked £25k on us getting relegated. As I say I don't know if it's true or not but I have heard the tale from several sources. And I actually know personally one bloke, also a Hammers fan, who put £100 on us to go down around the same time. He said picking up his winnings would deaden the pain a bit at the end of the season, so convinced he was that Grant would take us down.
known guys that do that..
I just can't do it....Heart rules me Head anything Ironswise...
Gambling and Betting are 2 separate things.....sounds stupid...but if you really wanna win a bet,you
have to take away as much of the Gamble about it as you can...
Why back one result when can back 2 and make a profit,why back one horse in a race,when can back
2 maybe 3,and make money if odds are right,you don't win as much but you win more often,It's
finding the balance.
But I always remember one thing, very wise words in fact, from a bloke when I was much younger hundreds of years ago. He said always bet with your head, not your heart. Good advice that. Particularly when it comes to the Hammers in fact.
