[b]IN THE WORDS[/b] of my two eccentric uncles The Pet Shop Boys: “It’s a… it’s a… it’s a… sin.” No it’s not. It’s a bit of harmless fun. Gambling that is. We’re not all as rich as we’d like and we haven’t got a bottomless pit of cash. Spending money on gambling, however, is often seen as a massive sin. Next time someone harps on about what a ‘waste of money’ gambling is and how you’d be much better saving it or spending it ‘more wisely’, show them this. All prices are accurate-ish circa July 2017. [b]What can £100 buy you nowadays?

[b]SO[/b] the sands of time are slipping away like nobody’s business. Once again, it seems like forever ago that I last treated you to one of my blogs and a lot has happened in my life since then. Being the addictive personality I am, I’ve attracted a load of followers through the various social media channels over the last few months while becoming addicted to a number of things myself – booze, drugs, women and ‘the high life’ being the chief four. I don’t count gambling and spying as addictions – they’re simply a means to an end. How else am I supposed to keep three Astons on the road and pay the heating bills on two castles in Scotland? [b]I digress.[/b] With my aforementioned Scottish hideaways in mind, there’s a fixture tonight that is worth a look if you fancy...

[b]HELLO,[/b] good evening & welcome to my latest blog. Something very weird happened when I last threw a couple of tips out from the East Wing of my sprawling country manor house. They both lost. I'm rarely lost for words, but... ... ... ... ... ... ... I digress. I've been suffering some pretty tough times of late. I had to get shot of the vacuum cleaner (to be fair, it was only gathering dust), I had to play a game of snooker behind enemy lines (more about this later) and my football team of choice hasn't won a league match all season. So, about the snooker. I was recently invited by a dear relative of mine (yup, he cost the best part of a million to buy) for a few games of snooker at the local Conservative Club. Obvs, this went against all my extreme socialist principles...

[b]HELLO[/b], good afternoon and welcome to my latest blog post. I received some crushing news this morning. I subscribe to Wrecking Ball & Demolition Weekly and it arrived with a thud on my velvet doormat. I digress. As I’ve been particularly busy lately, sorting out minor criminals with the type of justice generally only meted out by superheroes in capes, I haven’t managed to help you all out with my words of wisdom as often as I’d like. What I have identified, however, are two tremendous tips for this weekend’s football and snooker. I know you hang onto my every word like a bat on a branch so I’ll keep it short and sweet today as kick-off time is rapidly approaching and while I have an ego the size of Stephen Fry’s brain I would never deprive you of pre-match drinking ...

[b]HELLO,[/b] good afternoon & welcome to my latest blog. I’ve always found that following Henry Hill’s sage-like words of wisdom have stood me in good stead for most things. He once told me: “Never rat on your friends and always keep your mouth shut.” I’ve since added one more thing to the above: “Never hire plastic shoes.” Tour guides in Turkey are a bit like internet search engines – they never take you where you want to go at the first time of asking. I somehow ended up on a gorge walk through Saklikent gorge in Turkey the other week and as I didn’t want to damage my pair of John Lobbs I was forced to borrow the most ghastly pair of plastic rhythms you’ve ever seen in your life. Couple this with the fact that I’d upset some of the locals down the road in...

[b]HELLO[/b], good evening and welcome to my latest blog. I don’t know if any of you have ever played any football management games, but to sum them up they’re just like women. They beckon you in with the prospect of a more exciting life, you become addicted to them, you enjoy a few highs and lows (as opposed to kitchen table mediocrity), then they dump you on your backside just when you think you’ve sussed them out. Besides, once you’ve managed Crawley Town to the European Champions League final (I have the screenshots to prove it), the only way is down. I digress. My local cricket combo, Lancashire, have just achieved promotion back up to the top division of English cricket. When they finally got their winning runs, the crowd of 23 (two umpires, the groundsman, 18 members of...

[b]HELLO[/b], good evening & welcome to my blog. Sorry I haven't posted many tips lately, but I've been busy paper trading a few systems, with mixed results. That's what paper trading is for, though, making sure a system is a successful one before committing it to the old 'hard earned'. Here's the latest in my A-Z of Better Punting for the time being. I'll dish out some tips in the very near future - hopefully within the next few days. Until then, enjoy the weather & stay safe. [b]N is for No Score[/b] Backing 0-0 can be a very risky habit. Especially if it’s cricket. Sorry. Back 0-0 on Betfair, however, and a whole host of possibilities open up for laying it off as the game progresses. This is best done if you happen to be watching the match in question as it adds to the fun,...

[b]HELLO[/b], good evening and welcome to my blog. I’ll cut to the chase as, in the words of my cousin Jack Bauer, we haven’t got much time. The “lay the bookies’ window” system is ready for its third outing this evening, with the match in question being Switzerland U-21s v Spain U-21s. I spotted a branch of Will Hill offering 13/2 (7.5) about a 2-0 win for Spain. There’s a good reason for this. It won’t finish 2-0 to Spain. Lay, lay, lay followers to complete your hat-trick of “lay the bookies’ window” system bets. At the time of writing, you could still lay the above score on here for 8.0. Good luck & happy punting! Remember: Stick to the system and the money will stick to you

[b]HELLO[/b], good morning and welcome to my blog. I’m not recommending a system bet today (although at 5/7 and 2/2 respectively we’re doing okay so far), but I am offering you all the chance of some seriously easy money. This morning’s Vissel Kobe v Avispa Fukuoka fixture in the J-League is the match in question. While the home side are not exactly an all-time Brazil XI on difficulty level 5, the away team would struggle to give my Subbuteo team a game - and I’ve not even glued them all back to their bases. [b]Take a look at the recent form of the two sides and the odds offered for a home win are ludicrously high.[/b] Vissel Kobe have won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five. Avispa Fukuoka, however, have lost all five. Avispa Fukuokup, more like. Get...

CHECK out 'K' ladies & gentlemen! (system bets update coming soon) [b]K is for Keep your discipline[/b] Just as chasing your losses is a financial disaster waiting to happen, trying to follow up a big win by piling a load of cash into something you haven’t researched properly is sheer folly. When you’ve enjoyed a big win - and with the right amount of scientific research you will do - relax and bask in the glory. Don’t go frittering away your cash because you suddenly think you must be on a lucky streak. There is no such thing as a lucky streak and if there is it won’t last long. Better punters don’t win by luck. They win by having a thorough knowledge of their markets and by disciplined betting. I've spent most of my adult life working on improving my betting, and by keeping...
