    I posted this last week

    Something I have mentioned before but I think Billy Hills are the ones that seem to be the best judges of the Scottish markets.

    The teams they were happy to lay today were

    Livingston 9-5
    Raith 9-5
    Queens Park 5-2
    Peterhead 11-10
    Clyde 11-8
    Steinhousemuir Evs

    Of those only Peterhead won and laying all to level stakes would have meant a 37.17% profit."

    and have decided to keep an eye on this and see how they do over the season

    Todays lays

    Ross Co 4-1
    Brechin 7-2
    Cowdenbeath 7-5
    Peterhead 8-15

    They don't seem to fancy Peterhead much

    What do you mean with 'laying all to level stakes' mate?

    I mean going on the exchanges and laying ( taking other peoples bets) on those teams so for example last week you could have risked a tenner on each bet as below

    Livingston 9-5 ( so laid £5.56 to risk £10)
    Raith 9-5 ( so laid £5.56 to risk £10)
    Queens Park 5-2 (laid £4 to risk £10)
    Peterhead 11-10 (laid £9.09 to risk £10)
    Clyde 11-8 ( laid £7.27 to risk £10)
    Steinhousemuir Evs ( laid £10 to risk £10)

    You would have lost the £10 on Peterhead but collected on all the other bets ( £5.56,£5.56, £4, £9.09, £7.27 + £10)

    So actually my figures were wrong you would have made £31.48 which is 52.47% profit.

    I'm going to keep recording how they do. My other theory from buying the Racing Post on a Saturday is just do the opposite of what Didi Hamman predicts. His bet of the day is Crystal Palace and his lay of the day is Chelsea. Therefore I expect Chelsea to win and Palace not to !

    Knew it. Not so good today 2/4 won.

    So a loss today of 36.6%.

    I wonder if they will keep laying Peterhead.

    Only 2 yesterday

    Lay Livingston at 5-2 who won and Peterhead at 4-5 who lost so they won yesterday

    Didi Hamman's bet was a draw in Newcastle v West Ham so he is 0/3 for the season.

    Do you get the information they are happy to lay them because they offer bigger prices on those sides than paddy power and ladbrokes do?

    2/2 again today.

    Didi Hamman's bet of the day was to lay Arsenal at 4-11 so he is 0/4 for the season.

    Actually Clyde won so loss on the day.
