    Going to do a £10 challenge. It’s not 10 to 100 or 1000 it’s 10 till I’m happy with the returns or it’s beat.
    I’m doing two, one a safeish one and one with more risk.
    I like rolling my bets as it gets interesting and costs me nowt while saving me money. Had 10 on Friday returned 30 on Saturday and the 30 returned 130 on Sunday which France chinned yesterday for 630.
    Took my 10 stake back from first bet so had 3 free bets which usually would have cost me £30.
    Have an idea of what I fancy but ain’t looked at prices yet.

    I think you start with a tenner then have a single bet and if it wins say at ev's you then roll £20 onto the next bet. So it is a bit like doing one long acca but only 1 bet at a time.

    I think traditionally folk would do it with short priced odds ie

    £10 at 1-3 wins so then £13.33 at 1-3 and so on....

    Right, got it, it's a decent idea for like international breaks where there are low priced serious mis-matches but the amount of low priced games you have to bet on to get any sort of decent return puts me off, your always in danger of a shock * up your bet, like us being gubbed at livingstone.I much prefer my BTTS & pick winner in a 3 cross as the returns are decent for all 3 up, I put on £2 doubles & treble which costs me £8 and winnings are between £100 - £ 300 and even a double gets me back about £30. Last season was the first time I've been in profit for the entire season, EVER.

    There used to be a tennis guy that did this on twitter he was good, he'd bet on low odds and try and turn the tenner into £100 It's good fun quite difficult but can be done.

    The safer one is actually a bigger acca. I don't put much thought into how many or how little teams or in my bets, same for prices. I don't ignore it mind, but I just try and pick a bet on what the stats and my head think.
    The big (safer) bet is mostly made up of 1 or more match goals, and in 41 international games in the last few days there's only been 3 nil nils.
    The Chester game is screaming out btts and there ain't been a nil nil in both there last 6 games, that's why it's in.
    My only concern is Itlay who have qualified, surely even if they change it up a bit they can still stick away a few against lickmystein.
    Oh and Finland because its an early ko and early ko are *. But its in phew.

    It's only a bit if fun. I always roll my bets and have done alright out of it as in I'm not really betting with my own money and as most bets will lose it saves me money . Oh and always take my stake back ASAP.
    Btts win has gone to *, prices don't make it worth it now. Compare what they used to be till now.
    If your doing it you should consider correct scores as it will show more profit over the long run.
    Go to welovebetting website. They done the stats on the two bets and compared how you'd be better of doing correct scores. It's an interesting read even if you don't fancy doing it.

    Ta man I'll give it a look, I used to do 2-2 correct scores but then they cut the prices to 16/1, 14/1 & 12/1 so haven't bothered for a while. And you're right the prices have went down this season but as I said last season over the whole season I was about £300 up for the first time ever so I'm going to stick with it and I only put £2 doubles/trebles so it's as an added interest to something I'm watching anyway

    For the mora , if this wins then I will do a single at over 1.5 or a treble at over 0.5 with the £30 and try build it more safely.

    Usually stick to singles and only bet on games I can bet on in-play but for this weekend have so far just done a short priced double.

    Celtic(1-6) Koln v Paderborn overs (Sunday 4-11) so pays a out at 59-100 ( hopefully)
