    Wouldn't touch reserve teams either they seem to just fire goals in!

    But with at 60mins is pretty damn safe.

    86 mins now at 2-0 so should be fine.
    But I can see exactly were you're coming from, will keep to a strict plan and see how it goes.
    It'd be nice to be able to set something up so you get notified when it's coming up to half time with 0-0 or 1-0

    I snagged SPARTAK MYJAVA v FC NITRA, 1-0 after 41 mins with an under 5.5 goals at 1.04
    4 minutes and stoppage time later this dropped to 1.01 so a massive difference, seems worth it?

    You just never know. The 1.04 i placed and lost on was at 1.02 when bets were suspended due to the next goal only 2 minutes later. So it just shows even if you go for lowest odds it can all go **** up. Really it's my own fault though for going on an already active game. Low scores just seem safer.

    Started this yesterday on my skybet account with a fiver. up to £6.24 so far and the good thing about skybet is every 5 days you bet £10 you get a £5 free bet so will probably get loads of free bets on top of this. Been sticking to inplay football so far as they only go up to over 4.5 goals so i may split my money when I get to £10 and have half doing the same on betfair or bet365.

    Hows everyone else getting along?

    This sounds like a lot of fun. Gonna try it too :)

    For the free £5 bets, I'd go for something relatively risky to really try maximise the return on the freebies.

    Yeah, put the first freebie on England/Holland/Spain treble @ 4/1. upto £8.96 so far although I did cheat and bet on real Madrid castilla at home to Las Palmas while 2-1 up yesterday:p

    That was 0.25 odds but way overpriced and should of been down around 0.05

    Anyone else still winning?

    On £910 just now, getting rather terrified if I'm honest. Hardly doing it now and way too scared to chuck the £900 on, it's more like £4-500.

    I keep thinking if I have the same winning streak I did from £100 as I do from £1000 I could be at £10,000 in the same space of time!

    great work all the same - personally i would take out £750 and carry on again with say £150.

    Chasing the "big" number is always going to end in tears!

    Well done again. I've got £120 in my account from other normal bets and I'm going to start with £20 and go from there again.

    Very tempted to start again. It's a split decision at the moment.

    £10,000 is possible, but then am I just being greedy.....

    The money would just sit in a bank account untouched anyway.

    Is anybody still doing this?

    I managed to get to bet 62 this week then (stupidly) bet on an under 4.5 game and lost. I'm sure if I would have stuck to under 6.5 games i'd have still been going strong.

    Started again with £10 and now up to bet number 12, sticking to under 6.5 from now on.

    I was doing it but moved on to matched betting instead.

    That's worth doing but you'll need at least £50 to get you started and with only that amount it will be slow going.

    Got to £1080.

    Lost £500 ended 3-3. :(

    Still got £580 in my account. Too scared to touch it again. Should've took it out at a grand and started again. Too greedy. :(
