• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

Euro 2020 bets

While I am taking a break from betting on horses, going to have some interest in football.

Only setting aside a 10 point bank for this, if at any point I lose the 10 points I will stop.

I won’t be betting total of more than 1 pt on any match. Let’s see how it goes.

Starting with Turkey vs Italy tonight

I am expecting / hoping for a convincing win for Italy

My bet is 1 pt on Italy -1.0 & -1.5 in the Asian Handicap market @ 2.18 on Betfair

Anyone unfamiliar with AH market, above bet means Italy need to win by 2 or more clear goals for me to collect, if they win by 1 goal then I get half the stake back, if it’s a draw or win for Turkey then obviously I lose the whole stake.

Anyone wants to post their bets or any discussion on this thread, feel free to do so.

I think you are on the right track. It should be a more comfortable win for Italy. ( 3-0 ? )
I think looking at the formation line-ups ( Turkey 4-1-4-1 ) ( Italy 4-3-3 ) Italy will sit in front of Turkeys defence and pick them to pieces.
 
I am thinking 2-0, but 3-0 will be even more comfortable. Italy’s defence looks very strong, only one goal conceded in their last 12 matches (including friendlies), that was against Holland. I think Turkey will be looking to attack but will leave themselves vulnerable at back and they do often concede plenty of goals, that’s what I am hoping.
 
Bet 2 is on Belgium vs Russia game

Belgium won 4-1 last time these two met here in qualifying. But I can see it being closer between them this time. I think Belgium will still win but they do concede goals often for a top team, only 3 clean sheets in their last 12 matches, so both teams to score was one option I considered but gone for what I think is a safer option.

1 pt on Belgium 0 & -0.5 on the Asian Handicap @ 1.75

We collect if Belgium win, half stake back if it’s a draw, Russian win will result in a complete loss

I don’t expect Russia to win, but draw is an outside possibility that’s why I have bet as above, my prediction is 2-1 to Belgium.
 
England vs Croatia

Played on the Half Time / Full Time market for this, and gone against the warm up trends in hoping for an early goal from England.

0.8 pt on England to be winning at HT & FT @ 2.71 (avg. odds)

Saver 0.2 pt on draw at half time & England win at FT @ 16/5 (took sportsbook price on this as it was better than exchange)

So as long as England win and Croatia are not ahead at half time, we should get most of the stake back at least.
 
Two bets today

Taken a bit of chance on the Poland/Slovakia game

Poland -1.0 & -1.5 on AH @ 3.32 - Poland need to win by 2 or more goals for me to collect, if they win by 1 then get half the stake back, complete loss if they don’t win.

Spain vs Sweden

Spain -0.5 & -1.0 on AH @ 1.45 - full return if Spain win by 2 or more, half the odds if they win by 1, full loss if they don’t win
 
One of those days when you can do nothing right. Got it completely wrong with the horses, and same with both football matches. Profit from first two days wiped out and bank is now in the red.

-2 on the day

-0.33 total after 5 bets

..... that's just how it goes from time to time. Look at Spain tonight, totally ineffective! Absoltuely boring watching this style of football with all the passing back and little progress to be seen! I'd gladly take the five forward football served up in the fifties etc - Outside Right, Inside Right, Centre Forward, Inside Left and Outside left, better entertainment than watching this rubbish served up now. ;)
