i changed my mind, 12/1 for the enhanced double was far too big odds i thought, and i am actually thankful to the posters on here to have put me straight.I have been gambling for 30 years and been taught a valuable lesson on here, its not about who i think will win its about the value and getting on at the right odds, i will 100% grant u that i said in the heat of the moment i wouldnt bet mince, i totally dislike the man, my choice, but i would rather hold my hands up and say i got it wrong and try n do something about it before it was too late. Therefore i placed the bets on thurs as some insurance.
