Here's the most stupid betting opportunity I've ever come across courtesy of Mr Betfair. Invest 91.30 on the England V Netherlands match to get £100 guaranteed. They do a double chance bet on England or Netherlands to win @ 4/6 £60 wins £40 return of £100. The draw meanwhile can be backed at 11/5 ergo £31.30 gets a return of £100.24 you heard it here first.

1/3 would be about right to give them the edge, obviously the odds checker site hasn't done its homework

well I have made £230 from matched betting in 6 weeks, however I cocked up tonight, so if Scotland score both halves I make £50 if not I lose £10, come on Scotland

all my bets are layed at betfair

Bristle, I am only an amature at this, but one of the most important things with promo bets is READ the terms and conditions

I got lucky in more ways than one, got cash back on the draw at 90 mins backed the draw for the same stake lost £32 approx. Had a double on England and Exeter to beat Bath so won approx £34

You have to get smashed to have fun?
Depends on your definition of fun.

Some people's idea of fun is spending all day gambling, but it's not my cup of tea.

You need to be sharp and perceptive to spend all day gambling.

Sometimes you'll get it wrong, which is when the less smart tend to start flaming.

I do not gamble, but I bet, started in earnest 3 months ago, now up £300 so I know where Chompy is coming from, It is small time for me, with a target of £100 profit per month, and yes, you can not do this and drink at the same time, so packed in about 2 hours ago, now enjoying a drink, and missing a good profit tomorrow to watch the mighty Posh, so I see both sides of the equation, betting is about Math, nothing less, so as usual I see it from both sides, why knock what others do outside following Posh, life is for enjoying

There's an old saying....

Betting is only for mugs if you bet like one.

So those that suggest it have had the experience themselves no doubt....

I'm a number one prize mug when it comes to betting, but I have a saying of my own, which is don't bet more than you can afford to lose. I don't mind losing and it gives me a thrill when I do win (seldomly).
Slightly off topic I also enjoy drinking, Beer, cider, Gin, whisky, brandy, wine, cocktails, but not all in the same glass and not many of them so that I don't know what I'm doing.
