Are you betting on Euro 2012?

Post by Art Morte on Wed Jun 06, 2012 6:33 pm

Tell here - if you wish - on what bets you are putting your money on before and during the tournament.

I have myself been struggling with this traditional WC / EURO bet I have with my brother, two of our friends and my uncle. This is our system:

50 euros per head. Winner takes it all, so it's 5 x 50e.

You predict the progressing 8 teams, then you predict the top 4 and who is going to win and who is finishing second. You get one point for:
- getting a team right in the last 8.
- getting a team right in the last 4.
- getting the finalists right.
- correctly predicting who finishes 2nd.
- you get 2 points for correctly predicting the champions.


And it's sooooooo hard to decide!!! We're doing this on Thursday evening and I must have changed my mind a hundred times by now about which 8 teams are going to progress and in which order, who's gonna make the final etc...

Am probably going to place some smaller bets on matches during the tournament.

Anyway, if you've got bets you'd like to mention or maybe trade tips & thoughts, do it here Thumbs up

I put a tenner on Italy @16/1.

Backed RVP @10/1 and Benzema @12/1 for top scorer,5 euro on each.

I put 2 euro on Pirlo to be the player of the tournament at 88/1 and 3 on Ribery @33/1.

Will probably do a few more.

Put a £10 on France and a £10 on Benzema being top scorer.... when i did it both were 15/1.

I also took part in a Skybet Fantasy football league with people on NUFC forum iam on each person put in £2 and goes into a pot and the winner takes the pot.

I'll probably get round to doing more as the tournament progresses.

I bet my best mate a bottle of gin worth about 50 bucks, though her mom totally told her off for betting against Germany.
I say Germany wins it all, she says Spain. But what the f*ck does she know, she's a German of Turkish origins from Berlin, and a Bayern fan, she's obviously oblivious, being for Spain and all. :p

Oh, I also put 20 bucks on Spain and Germany to win, with those odds I still make a profit if either win, I also backed Özil as man of the tournament with 15 bucks, I'll probably bet another 100 to 150 bucks in the next couple days, but only in 5 to 10 bucks a pop bets, I like betting, but I'm not too risk-friendly...

I feel like lumping on Russia at 11/10 to beat the Czech Republic on Friday.That price is way to generous imo.

I bet on Spain to win it, finalist Spain-Germany or Netherlands, top scorer Torres, Silva, Iniesta, Gomez, and then the group winners and first second, etc Smile

I like tournament outright bets....good odds especially b4 it starts....although this Euro is difficult...

Ribery's got good odds there to be the player of the tournament.

Really can't see either of them contending for top scorer's title.

Yeah it should be fun but its already getting competitive Laughing some quotes

Who is likely to play in defence for NLD's in place of that Joris Mathijsen. Saw on SSN he's unlikely to be fit. Need to replace him.

Tim Krul. No way I'm helping when there is this much dosh on the line.

Very Happy

Also yeah Ribery is a good shout for player of tournament.

UEFA Euro 2012 Day 1 My Betting History:

Poland - Greece Under 2.5 1.44
Netherlands - Denmark 1 1.66
Russia - Czech Republic 1 Draw No Bet 1.72
Let's hope Netherlands win tomorrow and I win

Spain to qualify to 1/4 1.12
Netherlands to qualify to 1/4 1.50
France to qualify to 1/4 1.40

France to qualify to 1/2 2.75

Already won
Poland - Greece DNB 1 1.44
Russia - Czech Republic DNB 1 1.72
80 PLN, won 138.19

What do you think should I bet on tomorrow games? Over 2.5 in Netherlands - Denmark match? Straight 1 for Ger - Por or 1 with Draw No Bet?

Post your bets here Smile

Nice to see some betters sharing their thoughts and bets Very Happy

Although can u explain some of those? What di du bet for NEtherlands vs DEnamrk and whats 80 PLN won 138.19?? Did u bet outright bets?

I bet on Iniesta and Silva simply cos of the high odds Razz And Spain dont exactly have a prolific striker without Villa.... they both had chances today, Iniesta especially, Buffon with a great save to deny hima good start Mad
Not to mention Torres could have scored like 2 but for his finishing :facepalm:

And WTF @ the 1.9 odds of Gomez out scoring Lewand? Thats a ridiculously good bet??? Wtf!? Too bad I dont have that bet, was that for day 1 only or for the whole tournament? Considering Gomez is Germanys main starter and Germany to go further than Poland....surely it must be Gomez Razz

Spain to score with a penalty-kick - 5.50
2 goals in second-half in Italy v Croatia - 4.00

22.00 x €3 = €66.

I like the first one especially....since Ireland park the bus and Spain will dominate and try to play through the penalty box Smile

So I figured since Spain have a lot of players who can earn penalties, but wasn't my day Smile

I got unbelievable odds for Germany to win and Ibrahimovic to finish top scorer. (90-1) Granted that bet will essentially be ended tonight if Sweden dont beat us but if they do he has every chance, 35 goals in 44 games for Milan this year and he's been playing far better under Hamren...you never know

With the likes of Gomez and Torres finding the net I don't think Ibrahimovic stands a chance to win the Golden Boot. Those other strikers have got far better teams around them. Good odds, though.

Okay, so, trying these little bets today - haven't got that much faith in them, though x)

Ukraine v France 0 - 2
2 goals in second-half in Sweden v England
34.70 x €2 = €69.40

France to win both halves
7.00 x €3 = €21

Carroll to score at least 2 goals
12.00 x €2 = €24
