Maritimo V The Toon: Round-Up

My Tips For Maritimo V The Toon

Please note, this blog is just a bit of fun to test myself and also to test the theory that you should never let your heart rule your head.  It's simply for my own benefit to keep a record of how well my predictions do, and not intended as advice to be taken by anyone else.  If other football fans want to view my tips out of curiosity then that's fine, but I'm in no way proclaiming myself to be an amazing football expert.

Anyway, as explained when I made my tips, I gave myself 100 points to place a few hypothetical bets on newcastle and 100 points to place a few other hypothetical football bets using the odds available from and this is how I did...

Bets on Newcastle:
Half Time/Full Time: 
10 points on Maritimo-Draw at 17.0 = LOSE

Half With Most Goals:
30 points on 2nd Half at 2.1 = LOSE

Full Time Result:
30 points on Draw at 3.3 = WIN - 99 points

Asian Handicap:
30 points on Newcastle +0.25 at 2.02 = WIN - 45 points

My total performance on Newcastle was therefore an overall profit of 44 points.

This is how I did with my other football bets...
Bordeaux V Club Brugge - Asian Handicap:
40 points on Club Brugge +0.75 at 1.95 = LOSE

FC Copenhagen V Molde - Asian Handicap:
30 points on Molde +0.75 at 2.02 = LOSE+PUSH - 15 points

Genk V Videoton FC - Asian Handicap:
30 points on Videoton FC +0.75 at 2.02 = LOSE

My total preformance on other football bets was therefore an overall loss of 85 points.

So far my Newcastle bets are well in the lead but I'll see if this continues as the season progresses.

Disclaimer:  A small bet can make a football match more exciting but the unpredicatability of the sport mean that having a large bet is just stupid.  Gambling can be a risky business so never bet more than you can afford to lose.  The safest way to bet is with points rather than pounds, so if you'd like the chance to gamble risk-free with points for the chance to win cash prizes then a website worth visiting is  It's free to sign up and they offer cash prizes for the most successful punters in various sporting categories.  If you'd like to check it out then click on the link below:
