Yeah, good start winning all my bets on the opening night. Idk how today is going to go. Relatively confident in my bigger bet on Benfica taking out Marseille at home at those odds. Other bets are mainly speculative bits of fun, would expect Hamburg to come in, fancy Atleti to get the first corner as an attacking side at home in Europe and Liverpool away at Lille I'm not that confident in, but it's worth 2 quid and if it comes in I'll stick the lot from that bet on Spurs to beat Blackburn on Saturday.

If the ladies ask you what you're up to nowadays, please don't say "big gay betting empire".

I will say huge gay betting empire.

Learning my lesson on stupid lottery bets like corners. Also learning to follow my instinct and not get tempted by odds when you don't think shitty Liverpool will win.

C'mon Benfica!

Gonna lay Catania tomorrow I think. Don't trust inter to win.
doesn't "lay" in betting lingo mean you would pick Catania to lose therefore Inter to win?

anywho, Inter will absolutely win this match with cambiasso back and 4-3-1-2, and with recent bad results

Ben arfa is such a ****. Should have layer that one too.

And no laying just means you're betting against a Catania win, so you win on a draw too, though not as much as a straight punt on the win, obv.

Indeed the odds you lay at you have to pay, so laying 3/1 at a fiver means you have to give the other guy 20 if they win (and only get a fiver in the first place). Risky business.

Spurs put an end to the bad run. Won't be too fussed if I lose the Arsenal bet, obv.
