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 should post your bets before kick-off of the earliest match that you have 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.

I'll start with £10 on a LEEDS, LEEDS, LEEDS win and Over 3½ goals at Liverpool.



Leeds win is 3.50, over 3½ goals at Liverpool is 2.10, so the combined odds are (3.5*2.1=) 7.35. If you include that calculation in your bet, that gives me chance to cross check.
