Advent Tips – December 21st

| December 21, 2010 | 5 Replies

Tevez and Mancini may have kissed and made up but that wasn’t enough to foil our bet, as Everton stole the show to win 2-1.

The result means that Man City have blown the chance to be Christmas number one. I get the feeling that it might just be their last chance to top the table this season.

December 21st

I must admit, as the weather takes hold and we edge ever closer to the big day itself, digging out good bets is becoming more and more difficult.

Aside from sub standard horseracing (a few all-weather races) and sub standard football (the Blue Square North and the SPL) there really isn’t much to choose from today.

Of course, I could just pick a bet out at random but that wouldn’t do either of us much good, so instead I’m going to throw some figures your way. This is the all important Advent bet track record to date. All figures are based on £10 level stakes unless specified otherwise (i.e. the Higgins ‘saver’ bets).

Total stake: £205

Total return: £294.88

Total profit: £89.88

Strike rate: 50%

ROI: 43.8%

Not bad for a freebie eh?!

Right, I’m off. I’ll be back tomorrow with more merry musings.

And if you do have any tips for today, feel free to share them via the comments section below.

    Hi Matt

    With all the darts on any tips?

    Darts in my opinion is the best sport and im quite friendly with a few darts players from Yorkshire.

    Ive a little tip tonight that ive got on and it is a young unknown prospect called Joe Cullen against Terry Jenkins, ive got joe +1.5 to win that match.

    Also a little bet on the BDO side against another unknown unless you know darts and thats Garry Thompson was 66/1 and he’s a very good player also an England international for 3 years and for them odds difficult to turn down each way especially after last years quarter appearance

    Hi Wayne,

    I do enjoy darts and I’m sure I’ll be watching plenty of it over the Christmas period but, being totally honest, I just don’t know enough about the PDC to provide any tips – I think I’ve always shied away from it in a betting sense due to Phil Taylor’s dominance.

    The BDO however, is a different prospect entirely and I have a few tips lined up for the start of January, which I’ll be keeping an eye on and sending out in an email next week.

    While Thompson wasn’t one of them, I do agree that 66/1 looks a very decent price and I may now have a few quid on it myself.

    Cheers for the offerings!

    Good shout on last night’s Jenkins match Wayne.

    Hopefully plenty of people took advantage of the tip!

    Hi Matt

    Hope you took my bet last night.

    Even though my mate Joe lost (2-0 down came back to 2-2 against world no 6) my bet came in. Glad to see my heart didnt rule my head this time

    Just got 110/1 for Garry Thomson to win the BDO on Betfair. If he gets through a couple of rounds his odds will drop enough to lay off, cheers Wayne, MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYBODY
