It’s Friday! You know what the means, don’t you? It’s only time to call it on! Get involved tonight, have yourself a couple of shandies and most important of all, let’s make some money.

On This Occasion, You Should’ve Cashed-Out

After all, if you can go out tonight and wake up tomorrow with the money you’ve spent in your betting account due to a divine bet, what’s not to love? I’d like to apologise for last week first and foremost. If you were on board, I’m hoping you cashed-out, albeit, I’d never normally advise that you do that.  

Saipa got the better of Paykan in the Iranian league to get the three selections off to a flyer. We then had a major stroke of luck in Qatar as Al-Duhail grabbed a 96th-minute winner against Al-Sadd. Never in doubt. You’ll recall that I said the double paid at 4.72/1 so if you jumped on that, you’re welcome.

Mito HollyHock were the third team in the treble and I’ve got a confession to make. I backed the double on Friday and then had a single on Mito. When it was still 0-0 at half-time, I had another single on Mito as they were the only side looking likely.

Kyoto Had Already Hit The Post

If my memory serves, they went a goal up from the penalty spot with roughly twelve minutes left. Earlier in the game, prior to Mito scoring, Kyoto had hit the post from a header and they’d just been awarded a free-kick in a dangerous area.

Over the two bets, my cash-out was just over £100 which was about £20 less than the overall value should it land. Over a ton from a tenner was good going in my eyes so I went against every moral fibre in my body, took the money and ran.

From the resulting free-kick, Kyoto won a corner and equalised. I then put the loose change on Mito to get the winner to leave my account with a nice round balance of £100.

There was a winner, but it didn’t come from Mito, ah well, still a decent couple of days! Last week I mentioned that I’ll contradict myself several times over and I also told you about rule #1312 of my betting handbook, ‘don’t bet for the sake of it’.

Talk About Pissing Money Up The Wall

Later that day, I had £20 on Wolves to beat Sheffield Wednesday for no other reason than that I was watching it and that finished 0-0. What a stupid thing to do. Not as stupid as this…

On Sunday I was getting itchy feet because I had a balance in my 365 account not doing anything. For some reason unknown to man, I decided to put the remaining £80 on a double in the Czech Republic. That lost as well. Bravo. I took the original £10 out after the initial double won so technically I hadn’t lost any money. At least that’s what I kept telling myself.

It was time to regroup and go again. I had Monday to calm down and gather my thoughts. On Tuesday I did a match preview for Istiklol’s clash with FC Ahal in the AFC Cup and I was adamant that Istiklol were going to win.

After all, surely I’m better of on betting on a game that I’ve actually done a bit of research on as opposed to some shit in the Czech Republic. I’m rather OCD when it comes to money so I deposited another £15.98 into Bet365 to leave my bank account on a round figure.

Biding Your Time Can Come In Handy

Normally I wouldn’t do this, but I was still reeling from Sunday, I chucked it all on Istiklol. 1-0, bosh.

Wednesday arrived and I was at a bit of a loose end again. Itchy feet syndrome was kicking in again. I managed to stay disciplined and bet on a game that once again, I had to do some research on.

Hwaepul hosted 4.25 SC in an all North Korean affair in the AFC Cup which was a simple one for me. 4.25 had a 100% record and if they avoided defeat, they’d be assured of a place in the knockout stages. They won 2-0. We’re back in the game!

I would’ve backed Bengaluru against Aizawl later in the day but Bet365 didn’t price it up for some unknown reason, shame because they twatted them 5-0. Ah well, you win some, you lose some.

Back In The Game!

My balance is now back up to a rather healthy £75.81, oh what could have been if I wasn’t so stupid on Sunday! What’s done is done, let’s have a look at what is on the menu for this weekend.

Prior to the article being published, Long An travel to Viettel as they look to end their winless run which stretches over two-hundred days. Viettel are evens. EVENS.

Obviously, I can’t put that in because the game will nearly be over by the time this article goes live. Have a look at how they get on though. There are also two games in the V-League prior to publishing and they should also both equate to home wins.

There are three games that I’ve got my eye on for today. At this moment in time, Bet365 haven’t got them listed on their website, but I’ve been reliably informed that they will be added at some point today.

Money To Be Made In Syria

Syria is the location of all three of the matches. To give you a better understanding, there are three matchdays left in the Syrian Premier League and there is still a trio of teams that can win the title. So, guess what? It’ll be those three that we back.

While I wouldn’t suggest backing all three of them, at least two of them are going to be worth a dabble. However, without knowing how they’re priced up, it’s impossible to say which one.

For the record, the three teams are Al-Jaish, Al-Ittihad & Al-Wahda respectively. Each game kicks off at 14:00 BST. When they get priced up, I’ll add them to the bottom of the article. Tidy.

There isn’t anything else that jumps off the page within today’s football so you’ll have to be patient and wait for how they’re priced up. That isn’t the case with tomorrow’s football though…

Back To Japan We Go

We don’t have to delve as deep into the Japanese football pyramid as last week as there’s a game that’s a bit on the tasty side to say the least. Consadole Sapporo host Gamba Osaka at 06:00 (BST) tomorrow morning. Before you ask, yes that is the drink. 3rd versus 15th. An imperious home record against an indifferent away record.

Sapporo have won their last four at home in the league. They’ve only lost three times in their last fifteen games at home in the league. If that’s not a good record, then I don’t know what is.

In complete contrast,  the same fifteen game spell for Gamba Osaka has yielded the grand total of two wins the last of which came eleven games ago. The run also includes a five-game losing streak which they’re currently on.

What price do you reckon you’ll get on that? 4/6? 1/2? Think again. EVEN MONEY. Bonkers. Double your money, try to get rich! That’s selection numero uno.   

Consadole Sapporo vs Gamba Osaka | Home win @ evens  – 06:00 (BST).

At the same time as the game in Japan, I’ve found another diamond, this time in South Korea. It’s not as clean-cut as the Sapporo game, I’m still as confident in it, mind. Third-placed Gyeongnam FC travel to Daegu FC who occupy the foot of the table.

Smart Money Is On The Double

This season, Daegu have only picked up four points out of a possible eighteen at home this season and have conceded six goals in their last two. On the other hand, Gyeongnam have won three out of five on the road as the newly-promoted side look to stay in touch with second-placed Suwon Bluewings.

One thing that doesn’t make sense, is how this has been priced up. Gyeongnam are 17/10 to win whereas Jeju United, who are 4th are 5/4 to win away at second-bottom Incheon. Smart money is with Gyeongnam. Smart money is on the double. Come on!!  

Daegu FC vs Gyeongnam FC | Away win @ 17/10 – 06:00 (BST).      

4.4/1 is the odds you’ll get on the double. I’ve had £10.51 on it to keep the account balance round as per, that returns £56.75. When that bet flies in tomorrow morning, it’ll be Sapporo’s all round for the bank holiday weekend. That’s what dreams are made of.

See you next week.
