    I think we should have a thread dedicated to this artform. I personally like to win enough betting to pay for the weeks food and drink. What do you spend your winnings on?

    Are you a regular better - what sports do you bet on?

    Purely in online terms - where do you bet?

    Who were the biggest winners and losers this weekend? I had £10 on Rocky Juarez and £100 on Marquez which luckily I had already waged prior to changing my mind to Juan Diaz! I won £61 minus the £10 for Juarez for earnings of £51

    Which lines are interesting you in the near future?

    Please make this a sticky!!

    I occasionally bet on boxing and cricket. My main betting is on football and rugby..... don't remember the last time I lost on rugby, but don't stick enough cash on to make a decent return!

    I had a cheeky bet on Ireland at half-time.

    Where do you bet?

    Generally William Hill online..... there is also a shop near me so often call in as well.

    I left the rugby alone this weekend, wasn't sure how many Ireland would beat England by, with Ireland being 1/4 purely for the win, not worth it at all.

    I might stick a few quid on South Africa to beat Australia tomorrow, their bowlers will be tired, Kallis at the crease and DeVilliers, Duminy and Boucher to come in.

    They were around 1/2 at half-time after the shakey first half on Betfair!

    I'm usually with Bet365 for boxing parlays.

    Not a fan of betting on football. Too much luck involved, goes in off a guys ass and thats money down the drain. **** odds on the good teams. There isn't any great value such as in boxing, where we can make decisions based on style with luck being a much smaller intangible.

    I bet small the whole time and generally win

    This weekend
    €15 on Munroe on points @ 1/1 - WIN

    and

    €10 on a 5 way accumulator which was 10/1
    (Munroe on PTs, Glen Johnson, Adamek KO/TKO, JMM and John on PTs)

    ^
    only John on points didnt come in, but in truth it did, them judges cost me €100 the ****ing ****s

    Unlucky mate. That was a smart bet, should have come through for you.

    Hopefully this thread will bring to peoples attention some good bets. I think a lot of people missed Karo Murat by stoppage last night. Crazy good odds on betfair, 5/1 at one point against a guy that has already been stopped twice!

    Do those sites offer better odds than Willhill or Skybet?

    Willhill still have Rhodes at 8/11...... seems a lot better value than Jamie Moore at 1/9......

    You can get Ryan Rhodes at 9/10 on Boylesports. Infact, he and Small are 9/10 here.

    Betfair generally offers better prices

    Not much use for accumulator bets though unless you are by the computer the whole time and the events are not at the same time

    My Betfair account showed me well up on football, down on boxing, and catastrophic on horses. Overall down, of course.

    Which is in line with my knowledge of each sport.

    Every now and again a football match crops up that is nailed on, it's a gut feel, and I can confidently pick it.

    For example England to win to 0 is often a good bet and the scorers aren't shared around much.

    A lot of matches scream 0-0 too.

    Khan to beat Barrera could be value. Warren isn't paying Barrera to come over and slay his cash cow is he.

    I now, was gutted to be honest.

    I had a look at Murat, but wasnt touching that fight on the basis their first fight looked close although it was a UD. Murat was 1/4 on to win straight with Paddy Power.

    Didnt touch Skelton-Rogan nor the Thaxton fight either and thankfully i was proven right in both, that they were hard to call and Rogan upset the odds, as did Mezaache

    I try to have a bet every weekend of two.

    Biggest win was €370 for a €45 bet

    Id like if this thread was stickied

    Yes. I use Betfair for single bets and Bet365 for parlays. Works a treat.

    9/10 on Rhodes. I'm definitely putting a ton on that.
