I don’t bet often. When I do it’s normally with a Google Spreadsheet, which I put fake money into fake bets. But today is Grand National day, and everyone likes a flutter on Grand National day right?
Probably the naughtiest part of the bet was the fact that I put all of the £10 I had on Southampton winning against Reading, that bet worked out leaving me around £20 to bet on the horses.
Sam Cole, a work colleague, had pointed be towards http://www.olbg.com, but those tips just matched BetFair.
I did a bet on the top 5 favourites, with slightly less money the closer the horses were to being favourite
Betting to place in top 4
|On His Own||4.1||2||8.20|
Top four were
1. Auroras Encore (Ryan Mania) 66-1
2. Cappa Bleu (Paul Moloney) 12-1
3. Teaforthree (Nick Scholfield) 10-1
4. Oscar Time (Sam Waley-Cohen) 66-1
So I won £39.50 + £9 of my bet back.
I also bet On His Own to win, but that didn’t work out.
In all I turned £10 into about £40.
