A fruitful weekend for the MoneyMan as a bit of a form guide starts to take shape in the Premier League.
Matchday 10 and on average nine games played in the Premier League after this past weekend. As unpredictable a league as it is, this is usually the point at which a punter can start seeing some patterns and consistency in results, and we have a pretty good grip on where the teams are at.
I really feel it showed over the weekend, with Ollie and I six a piece with our score predictions and both my bets coming off.
I didn’t tip many bets for the weekend, but I’m happy to say it was very much a case of quality over quantity. I put R5000 on the over 2.5 goals for Arsenal v Liverpool, and when the whistle blew at 3-2, I had R7500 back.
I also tipped a cheeky 5-play, and I say cheeky because any bet with multiple factors becomes much more of a risk. In fact it was a fairly likely bet as far as multis go, yet it still had odds of 19/1. I laid down R1000 on wins for Newcastle, Chelsea, West Ham, Crystal Palce and Aston Villa.
On Monday afternoon my cashout option was at R8000, with the first four legs having come off. The 19k will always look enticing, but you’d be a fool to risk a seven grand profit chasing the jackpot.
I cashed out at R8000, and put my decision out on my facebook page. Here’s my reasoning:
Outside of some good bets, enjoyable weekend of footy. Man City march on, Arsenal are looking like serious contenders, but we’ll be doing a show later this week around whether thats the case or whether they’re pretenders. Liverpool’s woes continue and Graham Potter appears to have seamlessly slid into life in Chelsea.
Until next week folks
