There is no money in football unless you're willing to put a lot of time and effort into researching different leagues.

If you just put random bets on gut feelings and who 'should' win you're going to lose in the long run. There edges are razor thin compared to boxing.

I don't bother, can't be arsed with it. If you've got the time/inclination its okay, but I do well in boxing and I think most others here should be able to as well.

Talking about bets on gut feelings, I've just had a nibble at 12/1 for Marquez Rds 7-12.

Gut says Pacquiao gets stopped on cuts ...

I only bet on football for a bit of interest.

My bets are few and far between and the stakes are generally low.

Yesterday, I put 1 on an accumulator.

Too hard to predict.

Football is a mugs game. I can easily say most of my gains have been on Boxing, but I have lost gains due to betting on Football. I still haven't learnt my lesson on Football, it's just to unpredictable. It's more competitive than ever before now IMO. Anyone can beat anyone on their day.

I'm not disciplined enough to stick to Boxing though

Boxing is emminently more easy to make money on then football. I bet on the cotto fight not to go the distance and was watching it realising straight away this bet is goosed. So im seeing trouts oprice start to drift which were at odds with what I was seeing on the TV So I got 100 on Trout decision in-play at 8/1 to cover my losses

You get a lot of gifts in boxing. Senchenko at 3/1 was a nonsense price if you looked at it dispassionately

That's the advantage of boxing. In the Helenius - Chisora fight, the odds in the 11th round were about 6/5 for Helenius to still get the win. Well, as corrupt as Boxing is, those odds were great.

I had Senchenko at 9/1 for the tko/ko over Hatton. Those odds were to good to turn down so I got on there.

Think I'll stick to my larger bets on Boxing in the future, and just small bets on the football.

Yep agreeing with the rest of you. Football is a mugs game to bet big on, I lost mainly on football in the past and regained through boxing. Boxing is much easier to win money on, it has been my main betting success with everyone's knowledge and insight from here. Only bet a fiver here n there on football for fun these days, never big again as I have learnt my lessons. Long may our boxing winning go on.....

$10 on Marquez decision/TD at 5/1
$5 on the draw at 21/1

If Marquez gets robbed here I'm going to cry like a bitch. I usualyl don't bet on my favourite fighters because it just makes me more upset if they lose.
