if you're patient, stick to a system, and start off with a pretty big wad
please dont say martingaling.
come gamble with me, and if you card count you're out.
i'd imagine this is bollocks, and it's coming from purely anecdotal 'I went to a casino and thought of an idea that's probs been thought of and disproved but I won a big stack of dosh once so it's foolproof and always wins and i'm right' logic
Taking advantage of others, PO? :O
people want to feel like winners. If I say Argentina will win the world cup (they will) then when they do I'm a winner. And, more importantly, everyone who said Brazil or Spain is a massive loser IDIOT DICKHEAD
not the getting there
and literally everyone's predicted Argentina
Isn't there a tonne of money to be made laying bets on England to win the World Cup at this time of year?
makes watching a football match about 78% more interesting
occasionally having a couple hundred quid to blow on pop & crisps is great. £10or15 a week extra in the bank isn't as exciting.
exact scorelines. I remember I got 17/1 on Hull winning 1-0 against Arsenal in The FA Cup, 40/1 on Man United winning 2-0 against Bayern at Old Trafford and I got 20/1 on Froch to KO Groves in the 6th round. I put on £2 on each bet. I lost all the bets but overall just £6. Worth the excitement whilst watching the games/fight.

loui just reelin' in the big lad
and am about to make a colossal fool of myself. then he'll swan in at the denouement with some insouciant remark and will have masterminded my eternal defeat
it's a worry
the least amusing thing about it. Either he is losing quite a bit of money through a gambling habit or he's lying at length and in some detail simply to get attention. Neither are great.
You need to cleanse yourselves of this torturous stain. Liberate your minds
apart from WC or Euro ones. Short enough that i dont lose interest and adds an added level of interest to most games. Also has to be money involved obv.
watching football as a complete neutral is boring
If i did i'd win loads of money instead of losing it the whole time
yeah we did
That wasn't a complete waste of time/brain
Sometimes I rather do something that gives short term rewards than something rational or constructive. A good balance of both is probably best but hey I'm working on it.
'Cos I'd be all over that
a team from Europe or South America to win the World Cup. Possibly even the 2014 one.
Bet they'll manage it with a result of some kind, too
Nailed on. #KingTipper.
Assessing the teams' strengths, weaknesses and potential interactions is no bad thing
aguero @16.5 or higuain @22
but imo the goals will be spread around the Argentina team, more than other teams, so there are better options for top scorer.
If you're not taking a punt on Dzeko at 66/1 you're a big silly
like The Professor who uses graphs and chemistry to decide how best to spend the smashings of his son's piggy bank
who scales the nearest munro every time he fancies a flutter, and casts his cap from the summit! if it flies West, he lays the bet; if it flies East he doesn't. if it lands back on his head then he lays the opposite bet. quite the explorer! and this intrepid spirit is of course integral to THE LADBROKES LIFE
