Greatodds .. not a good weekend :-(

As mentioned previously, I am playing around on Greatodds and the past weekend was not a good one. The bets, 6 and 7 in the graph are the bets from the past weekend.  Bet 6 I can still accept, that was on the US Masters and I took a bet predicting the winner and reducing my risk a bit by including a side bed for that person to be in the top 5 if not the winner. Well the person being Tiger and he ended tied for 6th.

Bet 7 was on the Super 14 and consisted of predicting the winning team in 4 matches.  Here I had 2 right and 2 wrong.  The 2 I had wrong was SA teams that went 100% against the trent.  Who would have though the Bulls winning against the Thars after losing the previous 2 weeks against lessor teams.  The other bet is the one that really threw me, maybe Greatodds paid the Sharks a small fee to loose 🙂  I was expecting the Sharks to looses sometime but against the Cheetahs of all teams.  That just does not make sense.

Ah well, their still is some money in the kitty and I will just have to build it up again from next weekend onwards.

I am a gambler — for fun :)

Greatodds is a sport’s betting site and a while ago I decided to have some fun with it.  Now they have 1000’s of different bets one can do and it will probably take me a year to understand what is going on so I take the simple route.  I have invested a small amount (very small – one round of golf cost me more) and place some bets about once a week or when I see something that take my fancy.  Mostly it is betting on who the winner will be between 2 competing teams like the Super 14.  Here is my track record so far:

The blue bar is how I did in the individual bets.  The 3rd one is when I got it right in predicting Retief winning in America that week.  So far I had 2 winning bets and 2 losing bets.  The orange bar shows how I am doing overall .. currently I am down about 25%.

So instead of playing the lotto week in and week out, I took that bit of money and have some fun with it.  Ok, I will not get stinking rich by winning a jackpot but at least I have fun playing and who know’s where it will end.  As they say, maybe a little bit everytime will end up being a big lot :).
