Here's a good game for a tenner for those of you who want a bit of interest of a Saturday...

3-2 wins are generally priced up at 20/1 or better. So a 3-2 double is 420/1 at least. And you'll often get 22/1, 25/1 or even 28/1. Pick 10 games off of the coupon and do correct score doubles any 2 from 10. How do you know how many doubles is in x selections? Easy (x/2) x (x-1). So for 10 matches it's (10/2) x (10-1) = (5) x (9) = 45.  So 'Any 2 from 10' at 20p a line x 45 = £9.

Getting any 2 of your 10 games at 20p in pays £88 or more assuming all your 3-2s are at least 20/1. If you nail 2x 3-2s that are 25/1 you'll get a payout worth £135.

Now for the picks. I'll leave that up to you, but I'm going to go with home teams that are around evens /just odds on, and that are fairly short on the btts coupon.

Now...imagine it's 4.40, and you've got futbol24 or Soccer Saturday on with one game at 3-2 and two games at 2-2 and two at 3-1, and the bleeps or Jeff's dulcet tones Love happening all around you...

Here's mine

Arsenal 3-2 @ 22/1
Burnley 3-2 @ 28/1
Leeds 3-2 @ 28/1
QPR 3-2 @ 28/1
Reading 3-2 @ 22/1
Peterborough 3-2 @ 20/1
Bury 3-2 @ 25/1
Cheltenham 3-2 @ 28/1
Dunfermline 3-2 @ 20/1
Albion 3-2 @ 20/1

have to say trebles upwards is the bet, you wont even get your money back if you only get 2 right.

You might want to check your maths. Stake is £9. Minimum return for 2 correct is £88.20.

Adding 120 trebles would cost another £24 - need a lot of 3-2 scores to make that pay

Mind you a treble would pay at least 9260/1 assuming individual odds of at least 20/1. So for a 20p stake your return would be at least £1852.20.

Personally think its a great fun bet for £9.

If you did the trebles it would be 120 bets so that's £24 steaks at 20p
