Smokin Joe is a ' guy who takes his punting seriously '. maybe he could help you out

Thanks for volunteering me, it means a lot coming from you  :-*

FWIW, I tend to just bet in singles.  But then again I would tend to be hoping for a different outcome from the posters on this thread.  For example, I prefer the "large volume of bets" route and hope that due to sheer weight of bets that I will achieve something near my targetted profit of ~10% on stakes, ie I would tend to have 20 - 30 bets on a Saturday.

My approach is therefore very different to the guys who posted on this thread, and hence why I had kept quiet so far - because I am sure that my approach wouldn't appeal to too many.

So what advice would you give them.  Apart from if you bet with Powers just pray that ye don't cut the odds on them if they happen to get a winner or two?

I know very little about betting but have had 2 accumulators in this year. I usually bet on favs in champion's league group stages. Like arsenal v S. prague etc. I pick 5 or 6 teams and i have won between 60 and 80 quid twice. Not going to jack the job in just yet but I'm definitely ahead of the bookies

I tend to get a football sheet...write down all the positions beside the teams...If the Home team is more than 6 places ahead of the Away team i will pick the Home team..If there are less than 6 places then usually plump for the draw....if the away team are 10 or more places ahead of the home team i pick the away team......when i have all this worked out i usaully narrow my selection down to 4-5 teams and put between 5-20 pounds on depending on the prices of my selections...I have got about 10 bets up so far this season...Usually do a bet at the weekend and 1 on a sat......Seems to work for me

Good luck....
