Betting corner is back and this time its all about the EFL!
Running Total, week 1 – £0
Having found trying to make profit with this feature on the podcast in the past far too tricky with 5 of us taking part I’ve decided to try my hand at it for an entire season with my real life money.
Each week i will place a £5 bet on the EFL, it can be any kind of bet be it a single, double, acca, btts ect ect. The catch being that it’s a cumulative bet so this week if it loses my overall wins/losses my overall winnings next week will be -£5 basically it’s a great way for me to see just how much money i’m going to lose on betting this coming season.
Week 1 is upon us this Friday so with no previous form other than last season to go off of im plumping for a 6 fold accumulator (Go Big or Go Home). My 5 stake this week will return £174.08 whilst it would be a lovely start to the season, It’s basically a punt on team names more than anything else.
Lets start with Leeds (13/8) to beat Stoke (8/5), You may think I’m crazy here but i’m a Leeds fan so yeah you’d probably be right but sometimes relegated teams take a while to get going so fingers crossed Bielsa gets off to a flyer here
Brentford (9/20) to beat Rotherham (6/1) is next on the list and really this should speak for itself. Rotherham are historically strugglers in this division and Brentford should have more than enough.
West Brom (4/9) to overcome Bolton (13/2) on their return to the football league goes against everything i hope to be true for Stoke but Bolton were rubbish last season so here’s hoping they still are.
Sunderland (17/20) to beat fellow promotion chasers Charlton (3/1) is risky as Sunderland last won a game of football in about 1973 but i have an odd optimism about them this season so much so that i’ve backed them to win League 1 so to do so a good start here is vital.
Mansfield (10/11) should have more than enough to see of Newport County (3/1) in the first of our League 2 matches and we round off this weeks bet with Swindon (4/6) to beat newly promoted Macclesfield (17/4)
