Betting against your own team?

Anyone else do this? I’ve always had a few quid against spurs. Softens the blow when they lose.

If spurs are going to ruin my weekend by being all spursy, and let’s face it, today they have a chance to go second against a resurgent Newcastle with a new record signing, it has spursy written all over it, then I may as well make a few quid off it. Paid for a couple of tickets this year with the winnings.

Is it wrong?

Newcastle or the draw is 15/8, you can almost triple your money, worth a cheeky as potential compensation

I did it on the credit card. That's how bad I am. I can't remember the odds but profit was about £1200. Not as great as you may think.

Crazy, seems terrible odds but obviously it softens the blow of us losing

My mate put some cash on Arsenal who were 1-0 down to Barca. Think he got something great like over 20/1 which I thought you'd get closer too.

Remember I did to qualify, not to win.

No way will Croatia have only been 6/5 at 1-0 down to qualify.

I got 13/10 few days before the game-

Missed a 1 in the stake per line. But it was definitely 6/5

Wasn't trying to suggest that you was lying just can't imagine the odds were 6/5 at 1-0 England, I'd have expected a lot bigger. Which bookmaker is it?

Skybet. I did the bet at half time looking at the time and memory was I did it straight after then game so I got that bit wrong.

It was a price boost too.

Thinking about it, the game kicked off at 7pm out time didn't it? It may have been 1-1 at the time so obviously I did lie without realising. I was p1ssed but my memory is bad. Still £1000 bet though.

I did a £50 bet when we were 1 up at 4/1 on Croatia to qualify that's where I got confused.

Sorry

The game kicked off at 19:00 so odds make sense now. Good win

Ah yeah that makes a lot more sense. Decent return in money regardless

My favourite one was I stuck a random 2 quid on a Dutch team in the 90th min who we're losing, to draw the game. They scored 2 mins later and I won 40 quid.
