    Can we finish in profit and beat the bookies?!

    *You can join this competition at any time as it's a season-long comp just post your bets below and they will be added to a league table*


    Rules:


    Every Saturday you pick 6 games in any league or international game in the world that you think will finish either under or over 2.5 goals with the odds next to your picks.

    You can pick either all unders or all-overs or a complete mix of the two... it's up to you!

    Make sure you post the 6 games (with the odds next to them)... because the aim of the game is not to get the most picks right; it's actually all about can you beat the bookies and other competitors with a weekly and long-term profit.

    All games have to be on one day; so I've picked Saturday as that's when the most games are on. Also you then have the whole week to post your 6 plays which you can do anytime in the week as long as it's before the match kick-off on Saturday.


    All 6 games are 1 unit we can say (1 unit = £100) as it makes it easier to calculate

    This is not an accumulator/parlay game this game is about 6 straight plays in which we add up your final profit/loss


    Examples :
    Brazil v Colombia : Over 2.5 odds 1.91
    Costa Rica v Uruguay : Under 2.5 odds 1.62
    MK Dons v AFC Wimbledon : Under 2.5 odds 2.03
    Fleetwood v Oxford : Under 2.5 odds 1.81
    Serbia v Portugal Under 2.5 odds 1.62
    Plymouth v Oldham Under 2.5 odds 1.91

    Website that will tell you the odds of each under/over 2.5 goals game
    https://www.oddschecker.com/football/accumulator#over-under-2.5

    There is no restriction on how low or high the odds are but remember to turn a profit it's going to be very difficult if you are posting very low odds unless you constantly hit 6/6 which is hard to do.

    (*remember this is a game you don't actually have to make these bets in real life*) It's a bit fun

    Good luck.

    I could always just do that for them with the odds once they have picked their games, but yeah your probably right it's difficult to get people to get involved in these things.

    I picked unders/overs as I saw it's quite popular but maybe need to come up with something which involves very little effort but still fun.

    It looks like me v St Pauli then the overs king, I have no chance :84:

    Slim pickings this week Nasser. I won't be doing any over 2.5's this weekend. I have the over 1.5 double tomorrow, and have a few ideas for Saturday but they will be over 1.5 not over 2.5.

    I don't know if you can screenshot the coupon (or parts of it) or just choose some leagues and list the odds ?

    I like the one league idea but I think people would struggle to get involved it would probably be just me and you, how about another re-run of the competition you did or something similar.

    I think you are probably right, in so much as I don't know how much interest there would be in either comp so I am happy to go with yours for something different. If enough people agree with @pop47:)50:) that we should go back to something closer to the original then that's fine we can look at that.

    Are those games unders or overs or a mix?

    That's the main thing is to put if you think the game will go under or over 2.5 goals, and I can do the rest.

    Don't worry about writing the bookmakers name next to it, and if people don't get time to put the odds next to the games I can sort that out as well.
