If you're new to this, it's easy to play, tricky to win! A range of bets (no more than 7) is posted on the thread, take a look and see what you fancy, one bet per week on one or multiple outcomes.

The figures to the left of each column are decimal odds, and if successful you win your stake multiplied by the odds. If you bring in a multiple bet, the stake is multiplied by the odds on each successful outcome.

You need to post your bets before kick-off of the earliest match selected. If you miss the Saturday matches, there's usually a Sunday (or occasionally a Monday) match you can bet on.

I'll be about to answer any questions that anyone has, but if I'm inexplicably absent I'm sure that someone will step up and help out.

So, if you reckon that Newcastle, Swansea will both win and Barca won't have their shooting boots on, bet on that. It's 'traditional' to post the combined odds, which helps me check that we've got it right between us.

For the above, you'll post 'Newcastle, Swansea to win and fewer than 4½ goals, please - £10 at [2.6 x 6.0 x 1.4 = ] 21.84. If you're successful, you win £218.40. If you're not, you lose the tenner.

Vendor - 06 Sep 2016 19:23:37 (#4 of 1693)

I'll start with £5 on Man City and Stoke City. Odds (3.25*4.75=) 15.43
