Have you got money on Mallan scoring tonight Faraway?

I only ask because I have and it is starting to look like a cursed bet! emoji12.png

Whooooodathunkit!

Over the years the gambling industry has become more sophisticated. The ubiquitous betting ads that accompany live football matches are examples of what Philip Newall of Warwick University calls dark nudging, which is where online bookies edge their customers towards complex and specific bets that are hard to win. The bookmaker might, for example, offer seemingly attractive odds on Liverpool beating Fulham at Anfield on Sunday, with both teams scoring and Mo Salah to get the first goal. The problem for the punter is that the odds are not as attractive as they look. Newall found that the profit margin on specific scores – Liverpool to win 2-1, say – was 23.2%. Profit margins for simple gambles – such as a Liverpool win – were much lower, at 5.7%, which is why punters are nudged away from them.

Nothing surprising, to most, here.

Yeah, they (bookies) also try to "nudge" you towards daft (cough) bets throughout all sporting events on TV.

The power of advertising will ensure some are swayed, I'm good enough at losing my own choices, thank you very much.

You are absolutely correct and I would never encourage anyone to gamble.

Over the two years I have had an online account, I have probably spent around £100.

Not a huge sum, and for me, betting on the football is more of a fun hobby where I see it as spending money rather than trying to win.

My stakes are generally £2 or £5, very seldom higher.

Wins are a bonus!

I set a limit... how much am I prepared to spend this month on the football betting?  That could be around £20.

If the £20 is spent then the account stays at zero till the next month.

Some people spend more on fags or booze, so I have no worries there.

Re the odds, yup... I totally agree.

I have recently changed how I bet.

I generally put money on certain players to score if the odds are decent, or up to a treble of shorter odd match outcomes.

I don't do correct scores... too much of a "gamble"!

This month, I put £20 in my account.

As of yesterday, it was worth £97.60.

It was up at £101.... back down to £65... then back up to the current level.

 

Yesterday, I had two winning bets...

 

a double... Dundee Utd to beat Ross County away at 5/2 and ICT to win away at Partick at 6/4

Both a gamble... both shortish odds... but combined, I got £43.75 back for my £5 stake.

The other return was £2 on Simeon Jackson to score at 3/1 for an £8 return.

My other two bets lost, £5 on each...

Ayr v QoS and Morton v Alloa both draws (feckin Ton!!!) 5/2 and 13/5 would returned £37,50... but cost £5 instead.

St Mirren 9/4, Hearts 6/5 and St Johnstone 3/4 for a treble.... Not even close!!! Would have returned £62.56... cost me £5 instead.

Bottom line... bit of fun... interest in the football on a day when I had to work and couldn't attend... Net gain 34.75.

I find that small stakes on doubles and trebles last longer and see it as a bit of fun. I fully expect my balance to be back to zero  though! I don't bet looking to make my fortune... that is when it is, as my Mum used to say, "a mugs game".
