Red Flag Flying

Before I uproot myself for my cousin's 21st birthday celebration, it seemed as good a time as any to put to test an old hypothesis - can soccer betting be profitable (for me)? Tightwad that I am, I'll be just simulating my bets based on the fixed odds as published in The New Paper, stealing also the $100 Challenge format that sees Brian Miller locking horns with Tracy Lee.

For my first trick, I will follow Buffet's famous advice never to invest in anything I don't know about. And I like to think I know something about Manchester United. Minimally, I do know that following up that whitewash of Fulham with a 3-0 away thrashing of Charlton, without Rooney and Scholes, and with Giggs slamming a free-kick into the left post, Ronaldo lifting a screamer onto the crossbar and Park's flying effort into - guess what - the right post, is pretty damn good. Oh, and the 20LEGEND fluffed a sitter too, but made it up with a last-minute... sitter.

Yes, waking up a 3am to savour that turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life, also because Chelski were again dumped by Boro, this time by two late goals. Nyeah nyeah.


$50 on Man U beating Watford by two or more goals (at 1.90)
$10 on three goals in that match (3.50)
$10 on four goals in that match (5.20)
$10 on D-H in Liverpool vs West Ham (3.90)
$10 on Man City (+1.5) vs Arsenal (1.40)
$10 reserved for tommorow's Chelski match

Kind of miss the old Yahoo Fantasy Soccer days. Will try to revive it next season.
