This is now the new home of my challenge, based on the games betting odds.
Here is the break down:
1) We will be using the English Premiership and Championship, with some cup games thrown in for this challenge
2) You will be allocated 50 "credits" at the start
3) you may bet only a maximum of 10 per round, in the first 3 rounds, after that, as much as you wish
4) I will also select a few matches from european competitions to act as "double money" games
5) Hopefully this will be run weekly so you will have all week to submit your bets
6) Remember, your fist bet is final
7) No joining forces will be allowed nor will there be a chance to "re-buy" your way in, once your credits have gone, theyre gone ;)

I will post some fixtures in the evening to get this going.

Couldn't you do this with a league that mosr of us are more drawn to, eg the Premiership?

If betting about the Swedish Leagues I wouldn't know where to start.

This went through my mind as i typed it aswell...ok ill do the World super league

Ridleys
02-09-2008, 13:07
Could you not just do the Premiership?

Razer82
02-09-2008, 13:18
This is a very good idea and hopefully something that will do well once it's started.

I'm in agreement with Ridleys though, the Premiership is probably the best league to use as it's the one that most people know about.

Will you only be doing league games? Or will you be adding in cup games when they come up?

I have to say, i'd prefer the Premiership too. However I'll take part whatever leagues you do.

5 on Portsmouth/Villa draw @ 2/1 (potential return 15 inc. stake)

Arsenal 3-2 and Villa/Pompey 1-1

Returns 24units. Gives me a 64unit total.

I get 10/1 and 1/1, and stuff like that. Not 4/9 though or 5/4 or anything that doesn't have a 1 in.

Ridleys
08-09-2008, 20:35
4/9 would mean that you would have to put 9 on to get 4 back. So if you put 4 on you would get 9, and the 4 you put on back. If you put 8 on you would get 18 back + the 8 you put on.

5/4 would mean you have to put 5 on to get 4 back, so if you put 1 on you would get one quarter of 5 back + the 1 you put on.

blowcrapup
08-09-2008, 20:41
So with my 10 on Everton at 2-5 I would get 14 (4 win plus 10 original stake.)

rancer890

4/9 would mean that you would have to put 9 on to get 4 back. So if you put 4 on you would get 9, and the 4 you put on back. If you put 8 on you would get 18 back + the 8 you put on.

5/4 would mean you have to put 5 on to get 4 back, so if you put 1 on you would get one quarter of 5 back + the 1 you put on.

That confuses me even more. Can someone help me here please?

Arsenal: 4/5(fav) Draw: 2-1 Tottenham: 3-1 - 2 on a Draw
Sunderland: 3-1 Draw: 2-1 Man Utd: 4-5(Fav) - 2 on Manchester United Victory

Thats what I put, I'd lose 2 on the Arsenal Spurs game, so what would I get for the Sunderland Man U game?

BP_Doosra
09-09-2008, 06:40
Dunno if I'm doing this right but if I put 4 on Villa to beat Pompey then I get nothing, but from the 6 I put on West Ham at 13-8 do I get 9.75 in winnings as well as the 6 I bet? Does this mean I end that round with a total of 15.75 leaving me with 55.75 for next round?

Razer82
09-09-2008, 08:05
Thanks for confirming that.

I'll have :-

5 on Man United to beat Sunderland @ 4-5
5 on Mboro and Bolton to draw @ 11-5

Man United won @ 4-5 so I get 4 plus my original stake of 5 = 9
Mboro & Bolton drew @ 11-5 so I get 11 plus my original stake of 5 = 16

Giving me a total of 65 credits.

chopper99
09-09-2008, 08:33
I had 5 credits on Man Utd to win at 4-5. That gives me 4 credits plus my 5 credits back which equals 9 credits.

I had 5 credits on Chelsea to win at 4-6. I think that gives me 3.33 credits plus my 5 credits back which equals 8.33 credits.

So that's 17.33 credits back for my 10 credits that I used giving me a new total of 57.33 credits.

chopper99
09-09-2008, 08:42
4/9 would mean that you would have to put 9 on to get 4 back. So if you put 4 on you would get 9, and the 4 you put on back. If you put 8 on you would get 18 back + the 8 you put on.

This is incorrect. If the odds are 4/9 and you put 4 on you do not get 9 back, you get 1.75 (ish) plus your 4 back, giving a total of 5.75 for your 4 credits if you win.

If you put 8 on you would get about 3.5 back, plus the 8 you put on which gives a total of 11.5 credits back for your 8 credit stake.


5/4 would mean you have to put 5 on to get 4 back, so if you put 1 on you would get one quarter of 5 back + the 1 you put on.

This is correct, if you put 5 credits on at 5/4 and win you would win 1.25 credits and get your 5 credits back, giving you a total of 6.25.

The easiest way to work it out is to turn the odds into decimals and multiply it by your stake. So 4/9 becomes 0.44. Multiply this by your 4 credit stake and you get 1.75(ish). Add that to your 4 credit stake and you get a total of 5.75 credits back.

Arkitekt88, I don't think that you can blame anyone for thinking that the sign-up is dead as you had not posted for a very long time. I think 'blowcrapup' had also though that it was dead, and liked the idea so planned to continue the sign-up in his own right.

blowcrapup

I did think it was dead but I also PM'd him. To be fair he did get back to me but had already posted that message. Maybe I should have waited a bit longer before making the list but as you can see there was still interest in it. Apolgies as I didn't want to steal the idea but rather continue what was a good idea.

I'd like to do a 10 credit accumulator on Rangers, aston villa, west ham and beskitas. cheers.
now im puzzled on what to do with this bet.
at the start i didnt actually mention accumulators to people. there fore i dont know if everyone was just thinking its single bets only or that they wernt sure how or if they could use them. i was going to bring them in in the next few weeks or so after people had gotten a hang of the system.

what i want to know from people is, is it ok for this bet to stand as i didnt mention accumulators before?
please get back to me as i want to update the table
thanks

seeing as the first posts suggest this is ok, accumulators are now being accepted, and they bring rewards as big as 125 credits + the 10 stake back = 135. a clear leader for is topgooner. do you still aggree now? lol

I think it should be allowed as its a common bet in everyday football. Doubles/Trebles etc should be fine to work out as long as people calculate the odds and post them, but i would suggest checking them too. And as long as people don't come in with L15/L30/L61 and 4 folds/5 folds etc. Keep it simple and this thread will work for a long time.

~Ian~
13-10-2008, 18:40
I agree with allowing accumulators, but not folds etc. Keep it simple, simplicity works.

Looks like I have the biggest gain this week, up to third. :cool:

How did I loose 12 if I only bet 10?
Sorry if it's obvious, it's just that I don't really know how a lot of this stuff works.

Might have to try an accumulator next week to get up the ladder.
