After the last round of matches in the Premier League and La Liga, this is how I fared:
- Real Madrid (-2 handicap) vs Malaga – $27 @ 0.96 – DRAW
Brilliantly done by Real Madrid as we’ve won La Liga! With a 2-0 win, the bet was drawn, so this bet won’t be counted toward my overall prediction count.
- Atletico Madrid (-0.25 handicap) vs Athletic Bilbao – $27 @ 0.87 – WON
As I predicted, Atleti went all out to win a meaningless game 3-1.
- Watford v Man City match – $27 on Over 3.5 goals @ 0.89 – WON
Watford’s crap defence and City’s attack did not let me down in a 5-0 win for the Citizens
- Arsenal (-1.25 handicap) vs Everton – $27 @ 0.90 – WON
This game started well but got squeaky when Koscielny was sent off, and Lukaku scored a pen to make it 2-1. However, a late goal from Ramsey meant Arsenal won 3-1 and was the difference between me losing half and winning 90% of my bet.
As the major league seasons draws to a close, I’ll be wondering what to bet on. Apart from the FA Cup, UEL and UCL finals, it’ll be a quiet few months until August.
Maybe it’s time to start learning about the Chinese Super League and Major League Soccer!
