A welcome return to football.

First weekend of the football season across a number of the major leagues in Europe, and suddenly the weekend became busy.  It was like awakening from a hibernation.

I’ve not been placing any value bets through the summer, but there were a number of opportunities highlighted by the Bookie Bashing Bet Tracker that I was able to jump on.  With a long term injury essentially ending my cricket season early, I was able to get to the bookies when I needed to and was richly rewarded with six winners from nine bets.  This was my most profitable angle of the last week.

To be fair, there wasn’t that much competition across a week that ended the recent run of profitable weeks with a small overall loss recorded.

The first Double Delight/Hat Trick Heaven bet of the new domestic Premier League season was a very happy one with Eddie Nketiah doing the business at 4/1.  Sweet as a nut to get a winner first up, and even sweeter that it happened to be an Arsenal player that did it!  One thing though is that BetFred is not this season offering this offer on every Premier League match as they have done up to this point.  They’ll be making the offer only on televised games it appears, which is going to have an impact on turnover and make losing runs last longer in terms of time, if not depth.  Oh well.  I guess this is why we have to constantly adapt and seek to maintain an edge.  With this in mind, I’ve started looking at finding value in the Anytime Goal Scorer markets, again using the Bookie Bashing tool and seeing how many and what bets I can place on the Exchanges.  More on that next week.

I had intended to stick down my first football coupons of the season too, on Saturday, but with football matches now having injury time lasting anything from ten minutes to two weeks it seems, I wasn’t able to get to the bookies in time for watching the tense last minutes of the Saturday lunch time kick off Arsenal match.

No returns in the golf, although watching Tommy Fleetwood miss a gimme put for a birdie and then not ever really convincing in the way he played was immensely frustrating Sunday night viewing.  He finished second by a single stroke.  Them’s the breaks I reckon.
