How it works

Turning £10 into a small fortune within 3 months

We know there is no such thing as a certainty in any sport but if you could find a 1/10 shot every day and started off with only £10 you would win over £50,000 within 3 months, assuming that every selection won.As we know, it's very rare to find a horse every day that runs at 1/10 and on the odd occasion they lose.So how do we find that 1/10 shot that has less chance of losing, like i said before nothing in sport is certain but if your looking for 1/10 shots to try and win a small fortune then look no further than football matches.The over 0.5 goals market to be precise, although we see many games end 0-0, they are few and far between and all you have to do is avoid the 0-0 scorelines.In this season's English Premier League we have had 69 matches so far and only 5 of them have been 0-0 draws.In this season's La Liga games we have had 70 games and and seen only 2 of them end up as 0-0 draws.The chances of any game ending up 0-0 in these leagues is very small, there will always be a doubt in any game.If you can find only 1 game per day that WILL NOT end up 0-0 and start with £10 then after 30 days you will end up with £174.51 assuming the price is 1/10 for over 0.5 goals, the bigger teams who score most weeks will probably be a lot shorter but you can find plenty of games priced up at 1/10

What you could win

If you picked a 1/10 every day then this what you could after a set amount of days

10 = £25.94
20 = £67.28
30 = £174.51
40 = £452.70
50 = £1,174.18
60 = £3,045.52
70 = £7,899.29
80 = £20,488.81
90 = £53,142.69

It will be very very hard to get to 90 days consecutive days without picking a 0-0 draw, but it's certainly not impossible.I am very tempted to try this at 10 day intervals and withdraw my stake each time, after each set of 10 days assuming i get that far, if i can get to 10 days then i will make a small profit.Let's say i pick a 1/10 every day and after £10 days my winnings would be £25.94, so i withdraw £10 and leave myself with £15.94.My £15.94 would be used on the next 10 days and if they all come in at 1/10 then my winnings would be £41.34.Don't forget, all we are looking for is 1 goal in our chosen football match, it doesn't matter who scores it, when it was scored or how it was scored, just as long as one of the teams playing scores a goal.I know you are all thinking it's impossible but just look at the results from last weekends games in England alone.On Saturday in the Premiership, Championship, League 1 & League 2 there were a total of 42 games on Saturday, of those 42 only 4 of those were 0-0 and 3 of them were in League 2, on Sunday there was 4 games in the Premiership and only 1 game finished 0-0, but would you really have picked Liverpool/Stoke as your over 0.5 game when you had Tottenham, Man Utd, Real Madrid, Barcelona and other big teams who avoided 0-0 draws playing.It's International Weekend this weekend and when the last set of World Cup qualifiers were played in Europe there wasn't a single 0-0 draw from over 20 games.It is possible to win big from a small stake, you need that little bit of luck and a lot of bottle if you reach 30 days and your putting almost £200 on a game having at least 1 goal in it.

Possible Teams

Although the prices will be a lot worse than 1/10 the following teams have a great record regarding not being involved in 0-0 draws.Barcelona - 1 x 0-0 draw in their last 35 games in all competitions
Real Madrid - 1 x 0-0 draw in their last 32 games in all competitions
Man Utd - 0 x 0-0 draws in their last 34 games in all competitions
Man City - 0 x 0-0 draws in their last 32 games in all competitions
B Munich - 2 x 0-0 draws in their last 32 games in all competitionsThese are just a few of the big scoring teams, it's unlikely you will find any games with these teams priced at 1/10, teams struggling at the bottom of a league are other teams to look out for, like these fewReading - 0 x 0-0 draws in their last 36 games in all competitions.
Barnet - 2 x 0-0 draws in their last 39 games in all competitions.
Espanyol - 2 x 0-0 draws in their last 35 games in all competitions.
Stuttgart - 2 x 0-0 draws in their last 32 games in all competitions.These are only a few teams to look at, there are plenty more with stats just as impressive as these teams.All you need is that little bit of luck as every team has the odd 0-0 draw every now and then, avoid them and you can win big money.If anybody is planning on having a go at this then please let us all know how you get on.I am waiting until after the Internationals and i am going to start it in sets of 10 games and withdrawing my stake after each set of 10 games if i am lucky enough to get that far, at the end of the day it has only cost me £10 if i fail but i will have a lot of fun trying.

Good luck with this mate................ you are going to need it i have seen this crash and burn so many times it is almost a 1.01 that it will fail sorry but you will get wiped out :-


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 10:25

Cheers OT, i have bet on over 0.5 and over 1.5 goals for a while and was gutted that no bookie would give me a price for no 0-0 draws in the group stages in last summers Euro's.

Taking some experience from my Over 1.5 strategy at 1.3-1.40 odds you have to factor in a loss contingency and continue to update forecasts for timelines. I also learned that banking a percentage after number of bets worked out well. Create a spreadsheet with virtual results in and see how one loss would affect the timeline forecast then factor some in at a rate you would realistically expect. It provides a great more realistic target to aim for


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 11:42

Cheers MOB


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 12:02

A very good read just wondered would you take your £15.94 stake away after your 2nd set of 10 days and start your 3rd set with a £25.40? At least you will end up with some sort of profit. Its something im try to discipline myself to do as i always go one step to far and end up with nothing just my original stake.


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 12:43

Yes Ian, that will be the plan, another blog i have written (stake back plan) explains this for betting with horses


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 15:02

Whats the best site you have found offering your preferred odds and would you be backing any in-play?


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 15:23

Can I just ask do you just bet £10 everytime or do you place the winnings of your bet as well? I know it sounds silly but I dont do many systems might start it today or tomorrow.


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 15:59

good luck hope it works for you


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 16:27

Rosler, i have not had a proper look, but sites like Paddypower & Bet365 offer decent prices on the over 0.5 goals market


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 16:27

Welshie1, all of the winnings will go on the next selection


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 16:28

Adamspark, it depends what games you take, quite often the games in the Blue Square premier have plenty of goals in them so the odds will always be very short, as they will for games involving both Manchester clubs & Barca/Madrid


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 16:30

Piggott, yes you could try it on the place market on horse racing, you can try it on any sport, personally i would prefer to pick football matches as every team wants to win, whereas you might an odds shot that cannot win and the jockey drops his hands, been done plenty of times before and he doesn't get the horse placed


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 16:30

Cheers Badge1


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 16:36

if the odds are a lot worse than 1/10 then you can either double your stake to £20 to achieve the same winnings or you can just half the winnings, the choice is yours what you use


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 17:12

Ive done a couple of bets already today so might not start tomorrow but Im pretty interested in doing it the same way as you Micko


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 18:51

1.1 ahead of kick off . Youll be lucky . Norm about 1.06 or 1.07 . You may see 1.1 in Ligue 2 or Russian 1 Div but poor liquidity . Ive been backing one goal for a while not doing a rollover but dividing my 1 goal bank by 4 and backing 1 goal in games that over 2.5 is odds on . Average odds I get is around 1.06 mark ahead of kick off . As you can expect more often than not it comes in but failures do happen however rather than losing all the loses can be absorbed . You wont get rich unless your rich already and can afford a large bank but it can provide a steady stream with minimum effort .


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 20:03

Good luck Welshie1


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 20:03

Cheers bennyjeff, very interesting stat


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 20:04

Maesfield, that's why i want to do a run of games before cashing out a little rather than go for glory, some of the games you expect goals in do from time to time end up goalless


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 20:47

would you consider doing maybe more than one bet in a day, or will it just be a bet every day and leave it at that?


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 20:54

Welshie. It's entirely up to you mate, you decide what you want to do and stick with it, the thing with any system is to stick with it and not change. I have a stake back plan for horse racing which involves backing 1 horse a day, not for most people but it works for me. To be honest with you might struggle to find a 1/10 every day so you could easily pick 2 x 1/14 or 1/16 shots instead but that would increase your chance of losing though as you have more matches


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 21:18

I might try doubles to be honest Ive got a method in mind will start tomorrow I think :


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 21:55

Good luck Welshie, let me know how you get on


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 22:41

Good thinking Micko - but to get to 1.1 is hard on alot of matches, normally 1.06 or 1.07 even as low as 1.02, maybe you could just pick the lowest prices per day as they are more likely to have goals in them and maybe you could pick 2-3 teams a day or you could bet at 1.1 and hope there isnt an early goal and your bet gets matched, either way best of luck


 Oct 9th, 2012 at 23:15

Cheers Bettingted for your input


 Oct 10th, 2012 at 00:07

Im going to start this idea on Wednesday afternoon aiming for odds of between 1/5 - 1/10 and you can track my progress here

Now this sounds like fun so jumped in yesterday and placed 50 unit on over 0.5 goals on the Dartford vs Telford game. Got it inplay around 25 min. in the game at odds 1.1 and 10 min. later I won :I will be posting bet number 2 later to day so wish me luck. :

You lot should get onto Betfair and start backing the 1.05 shots there are a lot of traders out there who are looking to upgrade their yachts


 Oct 10th, 2012 at 08:55

Good luck kb9850 for today. Cheers OT


 Oct 10th, 2012 at 09:50

Good luck Micko. Been thinking of doing something like this myself but on the under 4.5 market.


 Oct 10th, 2012 at 10:09

Thanks gblosports, let me know how you get on if you decide to start that


 Oct 10th, 2012 at 11:13

Iwilling to try maybe ill start today. Very good blog btw.


 Oct 10th, 2012 at 11:27

Many thanks Ciotti


 Oct 10th, 2012 at 12:46

Micko cracking blog mate,you will do well and may try it one day.I did a blog about a month ago on here about over 0.5 goals first half and may do it properly on here with stats,how do you think that could do,very risky but had a few accas up but short odds.


 Oct 10th, 2012 at 13:10

Mercer, i commented on your blog i think. I think this bet is tough enough as you are likely to come across a 0-0 draw, but having to put 5 or 6 in the same bet is too dodgy for me, but good luck if your gonna try that. You have to give things a try


 Oct 10th, 2012 at 13:19

True Micko everything is worth a try and trial and error is key,think I may try and find value around three or four to one on accas and that way,hopefully getting one up every three or four weeks I break even and if more then better.good luck love the blog and learned a lot from it.


 Oct 10th, 2012 at 17:53

Soft2020, sorry but i cannot predict what games will end 0-0, i would never ever predict a 0-0 draw in any game, although i have often fancied a game finishing 1-0

Good luck with that one kb9850


 Oct 11th, 2012 at 19:30

Hi Swifty and welcome to OLBG, i was thinking similar thoughts to yours, although you would have to avoid Real Madrid & Barcelona games for the better prices


 Oct 11th, 2012 at 19:54

Very interesting blog Micko70 and I think I also might give this a go will let you know how it goes pal and thanks for the hard work youve clearly put into it.


 Oct 12th, 2012 at 07:17

Swifty, i was thinking of doing it in say batches of 10 days then withdrawing my stake each time. My stake will slowly rise after each set of 10 days and my profits will slowly rise too, as long as i get past day 10 i have lost nothing. I am also looking into adding any sport that i think could give a 1/10 that i cannot see losing although i would prefer to stick to Football only and avoiding 0-0 draws


 Oct 12th, 2012 at 07:18

Rory, many thanks for your comments, good luck with your venture


 Oct 12th, 2012 at 12:13

I think Im going to give this a go as well. Like the idea since its low risk for potentially big reward. I reckon its probably better to go through betfair though as the prices are generally better. For example in tonights game between Russia and Portugal the best price from a fixed odds bookmaker Bet365 on over 0.5 goals is 1/12 whereas on Betfair you can lay the 0-0 at 9.5 1/8.5. Ive checked for a few of the other games and it seems to be pretty much the same story. Just saying thats quite a big difference and will add up in the long run.


 Oct 12th, 2012 at 12:15

Good luck Trowley007

 Oct 12th, 2012 at 12:45

Trowley007 there is a massive difference between backing over 0.5 goals @ 1.09 and laying 0-0 @ 9.5 make sure you know what you are doing with your liabilities


 Oct 12th, 2012 at 13:00

Thanks Micko. OT yeh Ive been using betfair for a while now so I should know what Im doing. I wont be able to lay 0-0s anyway until Ive had 10 wins because of the £2 minimum stake. Think Ill just stick to betfair as I cant really be bothered transferring the money between accounts.

 Oct 12th, 2012 at 19:59

Micko Thanks for the inspiration. Im going to revive my Over 1.5 goals betting off the back of this blog


 Oct 12th, 2012 at 20:38

No bother Marc, let me know when you have sorted it so i can have a read


 Oct 14th, 2012 at 14:50

Ive started mine today guys keep track here


 Oct 14th, 2012 at 19:39

the odds are 1/10 and even money for a reason though, every match is different, but I believe I have a system that will work


 Oct 14th, 2012 at 20:16

I agree with Welshie on this. Look every weekend on the English divisions how many 0-0 draws there are from the total games and how many even money teams actually win.<br />
<br />
It's far easier to predict a scoring game compared to an even money team to win


 Oct 15th, 2012 at 22:33

Like i have posted earlier, i am doing it in batches of 10 games, then withdraw my stake, if it fails within 10 games i have lost £10, if it fails within 20 games i have lost nothing, every other set of 10 games after that is profit


 Oct 16th, 2012 at 21:44

I thought I would see what the most popular blog was all about and oh dear me! Excellent post Micko and clearly of huge general interest so no disrespect but I am afraid I am with Online Trader on this one. Every individual I have ever spoken to during my time as a Betfair trainer has tried this and crashed so good luck all, you will need it. I think this system is just behind keep doubling your stake until you win. To add something positive, if you only invest half your bank on each bet, you are not going to get wiped out by the 0-0 draw when you find it.


 Oct 16th, 2012 at 23:06

Cheers Billy, each to their own. I am giving this a chance, no disrespect but everybody has to be given a chance to have a go at their system yet the whole world seems to think this will fail before it has started. I am not going for the £50,000 for going 3 months without picking a 0-0 draw, i am simply risking £10 and trying to go through 10 bets at a time. Like i said earlier, if i lose then i have only lost £10, if i am lucky enough to reach day 10 then i have lost nothing and with the odds stacked massively in my favour it's a chance i am willing to take. It will be a very very long time before i end up staking £10,000 on a single game using the system i am trying to do. I know myself it's unlikely that i will pick winner after winner but if anybody has read my "Stake Back" Horse racing Blog in "Blogs & Systems" then they will see that i managed to pick 5 consecutive horses at odds against and make that system work and come out of it with a profit, and don't forget each horse had to beat plenty of rivals in order to win it's race. This system is simply backing a very short odds on shot in a 2 horse race, nothing more, and although occasionally the long odds on shot will lose, i am sure that 9 times out of 10 they will prevail as results have shown this season.<br />
The trick here is to only stick to the leagues you know, don't be picking a Somalian Premiership game just because you have to

"i am simply risking £10 and trying to go through 10 bets at a time. Like i said earlier if i lose then i have only lost £10"

No you are also risking any of the subsequent money that you win from the original bet it is a common misconception that money won can be treated as FREE and therefore not counted when lost.

"It will be a very very long time before i end up staking £10000 on a single game using the system"

I would have to say that you would NEVER do this!

"if anybody has read my Stake Back Horse racing Blog in Blogs & Systems then they will see that i managed to pick 5 consecutive horses at odds against and make that system work and come out of it with a profit"

How many times did you manage to do this?


 Oct 18th, 2012 at 16:35

Fair point OT, i wouldn't be making much profit from getting to match 10 anyway, but you make a fair comment.<br />
<br />
Yes i know i would never put £10,000 on a single result, whether or not i ever reached that far, i wouldn't bet that much even if i had the money.<br />
<br />
I have backed 5 winners a few times using the stake back plan on the horses, i have also backed 4 winners, 3 winners 2 winners and 1 winner, and yes even no winners


 Oct 24th, 2012 at 19:43

How about we call it - Deposit a tenner and see how much we can make with it ?Im going to try it in a few weeksseperate bank and just use half my bank each time see how far I can get.Ive been looking since I first read this a few weeks ago though and the 1/10 shots are few and far betweenbet365 seems to be the best but in the big leagues/european comps odds tend to be 1/16 or more 1/20 on the leagues id be comfortable with


 Oct 24th, 2012 at 19:46

Good luck Rosler, i have been doing a double a day since last Saturday


 Nov 1st, 2012 at 12:40

On four separate occasions this year I have picked the winners on the PGA and European Tours events in the same week. Doubled up they have paid out at between 168/1 and 1740/1... put your £10 on that :-


 Nov 16th, 2012 at 05:02

Great system & it can easily be achieved-10th markat least.Just requires focus!


 Nov 16th, 2012 at 05:06

By the way, thanks Micko70 for a great post and insight! Got to try it for one month-expect my feedback soon.Cheers!


 Nov 16th, 2012 at 19:23

if you dont get the 1.10 you are after do you place the bet and leave it in running untill it gets matched?


 Nov 16th, 2012 at 20:45

Hi Guys, since writing this blog i have found plenty of bets that offer odds of 1/10 or better, i don't use Betfair for this bet, most of my bets used for this are with Bet365


 Nov 17th, 2012 at 09:43

Prices for over 0.5 goals have been increased by all bookmkaers, last season you could find quite a few games each week that were priced at odds of approx 1/10, but now as with all bets these prices are harder to find, backing a team to score a goal in a game is also a good value bet and is priced better than over 0.5 goals


 Nov 19th, 2012 at 09:01

Well done, i have started to use different sports in order to get near the prices i want.


 Nov 19th, 2012 at 18:05

Looks like a few have failed at it .... just started my attempt .


 Nov 19th, 2012 at 18:18

Good luck with that, nothing in life is easy


 Nov 20th, 2012 at 00:51

started this myself a few days ago but I have been using betfair and hoping to get matched @1.10. So far 10 bets 9 won and 1 didnt get matched before the goal was scored


 Nov 20th, 2012 at 01:04

well done, keep it up, profits may only be small but a profit is a profit


 Nov 21st, 2012 at 10:06

I do the bet in batches of 20 or 30 then withdraw any profits and start again


 Nov 25th, 2012 at 11:27

At bet 13 with my Bank at £27.03. Iv been going for odds between 1/15 & 1/10.Next decision is do i keep going all in or do i split my bank.


 Nov 25th, 2012 at 12:52

That's the decision i was left with when i got to bet 20, i decided to split my bet and take half and start a new bet with the remaining stake


 Nov 26th, 2012 at 17:50

Went down on bet 16. Good luck to anyone you is still going.Going to try my hand at over 1.5 now but using a staking plan.


 Nov 26th, 2012 at 18:04

Good luck, you can also look at a team to score a goal, you can get odds of 1/4 or 1/5 for an away team and even better for a poor team travelling to a big team


 Nov 27th, 2012 at 15:42

placed 23rd bet last night, 20 have won and the other 3 did not get matched


 Nov 27th, 2012 at 16:16

Nice 1, good luck


 Dec 5th, 2012 at 19:21

had enough now after having last 4 bets unmatched. Final stats was 27 wins and 7 unmatched


 Jan 4th, 2013 at 08:07

After trying this for a couple of weeks I finally busted out last night in the Hearts/Hibs match. Im thinking of re-investing my original stake and having another go but this time rather than putting all my eggs in 1 basket splitting the stake across 2 or 3 matches each day possibly more if the streak ever gets high enough.

 Feb 6th, 2013 at 20:37

Scooby81, i have had a few attempts and always got first past the point of withdrawing a little but never far enough to get a decent return


 Apr 6th, 2013 at 18:52

multumesc mult pentru aceste sfaturi,o sa tin cont de ele,


 May 27th, 2013 at 19:16

You could try Icelandic games as I very rarely see a game that ends 0-0. Ive been following this countrys leagues men women and youth a lot just recently and Ive been quite successful in the over 2.5 market.


 Oct 4th, 2013 at 21:49

Nice blog, this is interesant


 Oct 6th, 2013 at 13:28

Just started this with £5 yesterday. Now up to £5.94 after 4 games. Just done it with pre-match odds rather than in-play so best odds Ive got so far was 1-14 but will have a look at in-play today. Got a tiny bit wreckless and did a double yesterday just to get things moving along a bit initially. Today Ive put just under half of the kitty on a Belgian game under half on a Danish game and the small remainder on the pair as a double. I like the idea of spreading the stake over a couple of games at the moment and maybe 3 or 4 as the stake increases. Although it increases the risk of stumbling into a 0-0 and potentially slows the accumulation of money the chances of getting 2 0-0 draws at the same time are far more minimal. But knowing my luck...I backed both odds-on Manchester teams last week which I never do and they both lost for the first time since dinosaurs roamed the earth but thats betting for you. Ill be interested to see how big my balls can get as the stake increases.I did a bit of research on various leagues. Interestingly Bundesliga hasnt had a 0-0 yet this season. Nor has Hungarian top league. Danish second flight Portugese top flight and Ukranian top flight are around 2-3 0-0s. But its early days in the season and things can change fairly quickly. However I wonder if these stats are relevant if youre looking at stats on a match by match basis ie. there will be high scoring teams in low scoring leagues and vice versa


 Oct 6th, 2013 at 13:30

* Danish second flight Portugese top flight and Ukranian top flight are around 2-3 percent 0-0sSeems this website doesnt like punctuation

Bet Victor dont seem to improve the odds on in-play straight after kick-off


 Oct 8th, 2013 at 14:51

I think I may give it a go for a laugh. See how far I get. Small risk and a decent challenge. Im a bit impatient tho so Ill probably try for some 1/3 shots instead. See if I can get rich quick lol. If I have any luck Ill keep ya posted.


 Oct 12th, 2013 at 20:40

Bombed out in curiously ridiculous circumstances. Backed a goal in Peruvian league match between Melgar and Sporting Cristal. 0-0 going into the second half then the ref sent a Melgar player off then had objects thrown at him from the crowd. The game was abandoned and the remaining 35 mins or so were resumed behind closed doors a day or 2 later. Defenders had a nice rest and game finished 0-0. Im sure this sort of thing could only happen in a game Ive backed.


 Oct 25th, 2013 at 21:47

Good luck with this hope it works out the way u planned. Very interesting


 Oct 27th, 2013 at 07:52

By definition a 1/10 bet will have a 91 success rate so for this to happen twice in a row would be 0.91x0.91 0.83 83 so for 3 in a row it is 0.83x0.91 0.75 75etc. 10 in a row would be 0.39 39chance of success and 90 in a row is 0.00025. However each even is independent of the other and if thought were put into the bet it may make the odds a little sweeter. But looking at it from a mathematical point of view doing 10 in a row has a 39 chance of succeding... just another way of looking at it.However for those who are doing this.... Good luck I hope it works for you all.


 Oct 27th, 2013 at 07:56

For some reason the percent symbol has not appeared so ....By definition a 1/10 bet will have a 91 percent success rate so for this to happen twice in a row would be 0.91x0.91 0.83 or 83 percent so for 3 in a row it is 0.83 x 0.91 0.75 or 75 percent etc. Ten in a row would be 39 percent chance of success and 90 in a row is 0.025 percent. However each even is independent of the other and if thought were put into the bet it may make the odds a little sweeter. But looking at it from a mathematical point of view doing 10 in a row has a 39 percent chance of succeding... just another way of looking at it.However for those who are doing this.... Good luck I hope it works for you all.


 Nov 2nd, 2013 at 07:07

I am trying this theoretically but I am not staying with 1/10 odds I have chosen some as small as 1/66 that game finished 6-1 so the odds were short for a reason. Also to speed things up I am doing accumulators each day - my plan is to see how far my £10 will go in November. I have £18.70 in my pot after the first day after an 11 result accumulator. My better judgement says I will crash and burn but lets just see how far I get.


 Nov 2nd, 2013 at 10:12

Good luck mate, 11 matches is far too many for me


 Nov 2nd, 2013 at 21:29

I agree I am simply trying to accelerate the process to see at which point I crash out. I have had an 18 match accumulator today and Arsenal and Napoli have just made it good so in effect I have backed 29 over 05 matches so far and have turned my £10 into £56.20. Everything goes against my better judgement - the odd Yankee is the most I usually go but as I have said lets see how far this goes.


 Nov 2nd, 2013 at 21:39

Maybe now is the time to remove your stake (£10) and play with the remainder for another day, then again take away your stake, thus guaranteeing a profit


 Nov 2nd, 2013 at 21:51

I am playing with virtual money running a spreadsheet to see how far it goes. In real life Id have taken £20 out at this stage and if it goes any further more at a later date. The theory of going 90 days would not work for me because as soon as I was putting £1000 plus on a bet Id be pulling out.


 Nov 2nd, 2013 at 22:03

good thinking


 Nov 3rd, 2013 at 19:12

Another 14 match accumulator thats 43 in a row now has brought the £10 bet to £139.70. I did have three more which I was going to put on tonight but stopped because I was getting carried away. They were Malaga at 1/20 Torino at 1/16 and FC Midtjylland at 1/16.I doubt that this run will go on much longer and I cant see myself reaching 90 in a row but as I have said previously lets see how far this will go.


 Nov 3rd, 2013 at 19:16

by gerard444 on 3 November 2013 17:0310 wins in a row and then withdraw profits is not a difficult task selection of matches is the key to make the strategy work however this is not a zero risk strategy.I agree this is far from risk free I am putting £10 at risk initially and then whatever I win after that. If I were doing this for real I would have pulled £20 after day 2 and probably another £30 after day 3.


 Nov 3rd, 2013 at 19:45

The initial blog was written without any thought of taking any profits at any given stage before the end, the way forward is to reach a small ish target and withdraw your stake and continue to do that, thus grabbing profits along the way


 Nov 3rd, 2013 at 20:32

The three I stayed away from all came off too so 139.70 would have been £163.70


 Nov 4th, 2013 at 22:17

Nine more today makes it 52 on the bounce and £290.08. Can see all 8 Champions League games having goals as well as Wolves Sparta RotterdamHednesford and Bromley - odds are 1/16 x3 1/66x2 1/33 1/20 x 3 1/14x2 1/100 . This is where I crash and burn.


 Nov 4th, 2013 at 22:29

That would be a 1.71 Accumulator IF it comes off.


 Nov 4th, 2013 at 22:41

good luck Dave


 Nov 4th, 2013 at 23:28

Micko..... My missus is insisting that I do this for real. I cant see the day when I will ever put a 12 match accumulator on especially with a £290 stake.


 Nov 5th, 2013 at 16:20

I am looking forward to seeing how anyone gets on when they try to put the final bets on to get up to the big number - the layers on Betfair wont be big enough and the bookies not bold enough. They have short odds already on all over 0.5 goals bets so I can only see this working with accumulators to get the odds closer to 1/10 - which of course increases the chances of losing....


 Nov 5th, 2013 at 21:37

told you Id crash and burn.


 Dec 31st, 2013 at 12:42

good luck James


 Jan 15th, 2014 at 22:51

Just started this again too. Used to do over 0.5 but the odds have been slashed. Instead doing over 1.5 in one game a day to see how i get on. Starting with a tenner first bet returns £11.81.


 Jan 18th, 2014 at 01:15

Richard1973, thanks for your comments, i wrote this blog in October 2012 and since then the prices have been shortened up remarkably, i have however wrote a new blog entitled £1 to £273 in 30 days


 Jan 26th, 2014 at 16:25

Danbryn, i use for all my research.


 Mar 5th, 2014 at 21:22

Peter79, just look at the figures above, if 10 = £25.94<br />
20 = £67.28<br />
30 = £174.51 and you are having 5 bets a day, just multiply each amount by 5 to see how you will far each set of 10 days


 Mar 11th, 2014 at 09:44

 Apr 1st, 2014 at 00:11

the idea here is big money for small, I dont think most people could pull this off. because its not like an accumulator in putting on all 30 selections at once and waiting, to put on the first few bets would be easy, but when your stake reached up into thousands or even one thousand how hard would it be to put that whole 1000 on a match and hope for a goal. there could be a goal and it could come in the 86th minute. how hard on your nerves would that be... looking at results if fine but at what time did a team score, as i said above i know if i had a couple of thousand on such a bet I would be on valium if the goal didnt come until injury time.... and you can pull out of course at a loss undoing all your previous hard work. the idea is great on paper, in reality its not so handy...and im only talking the first couple of thousand, what when it gets to say 12 or 15 thousand, who would put that amount on there being a goal in a match... with the risk of losing it all.. in theory the idea is good, in practice its a non runner... anyway best wishes god loves a trier and i think the bookies do too


 Apr 4th, 2014 at 22:17

Tell me which blog you are looking for and i will put the link in here for you, thanks


 Apr 21st, 2014 at 08:46

its possible but it can break easily too...


 Apr 26th, 2014 at 07:41

Good luck Asa1976


 Jul 6th, 2014 at 18:22

I think asa1976 has come a cropper as he hasnt got back to us........and agree totally with shauny007....In theory and on paper it is possible but in reality it is impossible to achieve.


 Sep 16th, 2014 at 09:58

not a bad idea

Professional Betting

 Sep 17th, 2014 at 20:36

right for the news earlier this year as I picked data to evaluate a method, at the same time I realized that all the matches were with at least one goal. I took 59 consecutive games with more than one goal. So choose well in my opinion you can do.


 Oct 15th, 2014 at 16:17

The big issue I found was finding good enough odds. Obviously with teams that dictate goals you get something closer to 1.05 than 1.10 for over 0.5 and that forced my hand to go for 3 game accumulators. I had 11 successful trebles of around 1.16 and on the 12th attempt I hit a 0:0 in Holland, between teams that never in history had a 0:0 draw and one of them had only one 0:0 draw in their last 55 matches. Overall I was on a run of 35 consecutive over 0.5s but the highest odds I got were 1.075. Patience is all you need in one such situation or trying it in Italy Serie B, where you often get even close to 1.17 on the over.


 Nov 12th, 2014 at 22:04

How has this faired for everyone? Superleeds is your bet still going?


 Nov 26th, 2014 at 12:52

How about the others? great job superleeds16 keep us posted pls


 Nov 30th, 2014 at 22:30

Just had a go & failed on Round 21. Ended by Sunderland Chelsea


 Dec 11th, 2014 at 12:06

The odds on this bet have dramatically changed since the blog was written in October 2012, it's harder to play this bet now but if you are patient then it can be a winning bet, with that little bit of luck of course


 Jan 27th, 2015 at 20:41

Does anyone know where I can get stats on the teams with the highest % of scoring goals in the second half, by league around europe ideally? I am planning to use this strategy but enhance my odds to 1.33 or more by going in at half-time on high scoring likely matches that are still 0-0.


 Jan 29th, 2015 at 23:28

Soccerstats and Soccerway have time of goals scored for each side if you click on the matchups. Hope it helps with your idea, which sounds good to me.


 Jan 30th, 2015 at 09:42

Hi Phil<br />
Over 0.5 is about goals, so basically, the game must not finish 0-0, the popular bet you see in the bookies these days is the over/under 2.5 goals where you pick over if you think the game will have 3 or more goals in it or under if you think the game will have less than 3 goals in it


 Feb 1st, 2015 at 20:33

What a great blog Micko70 and some great advice from a lot of people . My question would be could you do a staking plan where you dont put all your bank on all the time so if you lose you wont get wiped out . Would that work anyhow ??


 Feb 1st, 2015 at 20:37

sjpafc16<br />
yes, you could easily set yourself up a staking plan, however, this blog was written back in 2012 and the prices have changed a lot since then


 Feb 4th, 2015 at 23:33

philsmusic2000 <br />
<br />
Any online bookmakers will allow you to do £1 accumulators and just look through OLBG for all the tips you want, all for free


 Feb 10th, 2015 at 03:50

The odds on over 0.5 these days make it very nearly impossible to make a profit and you would need a strike rate of around 97 to make any sort of profit. The odds on over 0.5 are typically around 1/30 and for the sort of teams mentioned as high scoring around 1/50. I have lost two 1/50 over 0.5 shots in my time experimenting with goals systems: Barcelona failing to score at home to Celta Vigo and Celtic failing to score at home to Ross County. Good luck to all who attempt it but unfortunately I dont think it can be done...


 Feb 18th, 2015 at 18:56

Dont know the stats but wonder if the percentage could be improved after a certain stage of the season. In Portugals league 2 this afternoon there were only three teams that hadnt previously been involved in a scoreless game: Vitoria Guimares II Atletico CP and Maritimo II. All were about 1/10 or 1/11 on Laddies and there was at least one goal in all three games.


 Mar 2nd, 2015 at 20:13

Nice 1


 Apr 7th, 2015 at 19:26

Cheers Micko70 great system - just done 54 bets and almost £2k in a little under a month before hitting my first 0-0. Does anyone have a process for picking bets?


 Apr 14th, 2015 at 08:26

Amazing!!! First Bet and I have already lost...


 Apr 14th, 2015 at 10:09

Uros09, this blog is over 2 years old and the prices have changed a lot in this time, 1.1 was hard to find when i wrote the blog, but there were a few games available


 Apr 14th, 2015 at 15:53

3 matches only today that have ended 0-0... Not my day


 Apr 24th, 2015 at 00:50

hi micko just like to say thank you on this blog I follow this for a month and got up to 20 bet then when tits up so I now I look at all sports and by luck have got to 40 bet so very happy I have been doing your 10 days intervals and took 1/10 as min prices and had 1/5 or 2/9 as max prices. I also been trying to do it in-play on weekend as time allow and there is so cracking prices out thereif you just look. just to say thank you again as this has change my betting outlook forever


 Apr 25th, 2015 at 21:18

0-0 Odds on Premiership around 8 ...that means on average you could win 92 out of 100 times. By judicial team selection 10 pre-selected top European teams I have got this down to 2 ! 157 team selections this season only 3 Nil Nils ! On Betfair I try and get filled at 1.15 which equates to about 20 mins in ...reduces 157 down to 98....longest sequence before Nil Nil 36 consequtive games ...turns £100 into £ 10591...taking into account Betfair 5 commission. Im still fine tuning system ....but it works!


 Apr 25th, 2015 at 21:21

8 should read 8%....and 2....2%


 Apr 25th, 2015 at 21:27

Nice 1


 Apr 26th, 2015 at 08:46

Ta Micko ...I would just add your teams/game selection is most important and you must follow this system like a Robot ...the moment you deviate Oh an early goal - Ill jump on to 1.5 goals plus ....youll lose the aim well my aim is to compound my winning run....with my prediction accuracy at 2 a run of 45 over a season should be achievable.....turns £100 into £ 35129 at 15 filled. Now theres a though :-


 Apr 26th, 2015 at 08:48

A friend of mine good footy expert ....just proof testing the system had a winning run of 85 before a Nil Nil !


 Aug 23rd, 2015 at 14:34

Yuppeee I got to 50 successful bets with this system but I only get odds like 106 most. Only around 30 pounds profits :

The Market Man

 Aug 27th, 2015 at 12:29

I was thinking about this the other day and might have a trial run. The Arsenal v Liverpool game would have been a banker for many backing against the draw and yet...


 Sep 17th, 2015 at 14:58

Nice information


 Sep 26th, 2015 at 23:48

good luck with this but i think that u will lost so many time when u double up :


 Nov 15th, 2015 at 11:05

My only reservation would be the ability to get the bets on when you get to a run of 40+. Can I ask if anyone has ran this system up to a large run and if so how do you get your bets on. All with one online bookie or split between a number of bookies?


 Dec 1st, 2015 at 18:51

Hi Dave<br />
This blog is now 3 years old and the prices have changed quite a lot in that time, good luck with your idea


 Dec 6th, 2015 at 09:28

Started this system almost two weeks ago my odds are a little higher on average than 1.10... more like 1.30 and am now at 58.60€ after last nights draw between Ajaccio and Nantes as I only do double chance bets. Am tempted by taking half my stake right now and putting the rest on my bet of the day but its only a tenner so... Anyway if anybodys interested my double chance bet will be Saint-Etienne to win or draw home to Rennes at odds of 1.20 get lesser odds in France than you guys in England. Hopefully Ill be 70.32€ by 11pm tonight. And looking at next weeks card Champions League theres a lot of money to be made if things dont go pear shaped.

 Dec 31st, 2015 at 00:08

that was an interesting read i will start the trial on the 1st and let you know how i have gone on like you say it is only £10 i might tweek it a little by picking 2 matches at over 0.5 goals in a double i will contact you on the 1st of Feb. and let you know if i have managed to make a profit


 Dec 31st, 2015 at 09:06

Hi, good luck with this, i must warn you that as this blog is over 3 years old, the prices available have changed


 Feb 8th, 2016 at 06:33

i have done this for 48 bets straight without losing and made $3000. i am new member here so i will make a new thread with my selections. This was 1 year ago. Now i bet much higher. around $500-$1000 per bet


 Feb 8th, 2016 at 06:34

i should add after 48 bets i bet on an nba game and lost so my streak ended. i wish i hadnt bet on it but it happens.


 Feb 24th, 2016 at 20:25

Hi all i have just completed this challenge slightly differently and with a few obstacles.It was done starting with £25 in seven bets reaching £1019.95. The £25 was a £20 double and a £5 treble giving me £65 onto the next bet which yeilded £125 then £250 £400 £733 bookie then only only let me have £500 on which yeilded me £785.81 minus stake gives above total or there about.


 Feb 24th, 2016 at 20:58

Well done


 Jun 20th, 2016 at 12:41

Thanks for your reply Al


 Jun 20th, 2016 at 16:51

I understand what your saying Al, but this blog is 3 years old now and the prices have vastly changed in that time, it doesn't mean to say that a tidy sum can be won.<br />
<br />
I am thinking of doing something like this once the new season gets underway, might see if i can go the full season picking over 0.5 goals


 Jun 20th, 2016 at 18:09

I know exactly what you mean mate


 Jun 26th, 2016 at 21:10

sky187fall, there are plenty of ways to variate your bet, i think AH could work but some games are just to hard to call, i am in the process of thinking of another bet for the new season


 Jul 14th, 2016 at 12:22

Not sure if this has been mentioned but if you place your bets through WillHill.Com any losing bet will be returned under their bore-draw stake return offer. Regards


 Jul 14th, 2016 at 12:41

Would be interesting to see how the plan would work if you only bet on teams that had a nil nil within the last x number of games. Just looked on goal distribution stats page across all divisions in England and Scotland for last year and youll be surprised how difficult this system would be to yeild any profits. The number of games of games finishing 0-0 is actually quite high when taken in the context of this system.


 Jul 14th, 2016 at 12:43

For example. If the team had a nil-nil draw in its last match what are the chances of the next match being nin-nil too? Might be worth a look. I have all results for last six years in an excel database so will back test this to see how it works out.


 Jul 15th, 2016 at 08:30

Thanks for your comments


 Jul 27th, 2016 at 10:52

I use this method and I tend to opt for the Double Chance and Draw no bet markets. I use ForeBet to give me the likeliest winners and then protect in case of draw in favour of the side with 50 chance on ForeBet.I usually get up to £80 and withdraw my cash but I find it a highly effective method.


 Aug 1st, 2016 at 22:39

Have started this challenge. Up to £24.72 after 7 bets so far


 Aug 1st, 2016 at 23:52

Good luck


 Aug 3rd, 2016 at 22:36

After 10 bets I am sitting at £22.09 with the £10 I started with withdrawn. Going well so far


 Aug 6th, 2016 at 15:16

Thats definitely worth a try. I once saw in some forum where one person managed to go atleast 34 games in a row until 0:0 came.


 Oct 12th, 2016 at 21:17

Started again!!! After 10 bets and stake taken back I am up to £44.59


 Oct 12th, 2016 at 22:16

Nice 1 Rocket23


 Oct 14th, 2016 at 22:13

Have had a crazy few days so after 21 bets I am at £174.86


 Dec 4th, 2016 at 10:45

Some great stats to read there like and brilliant feedback and as you say it's not Impossible and well worth ago at least for the 10 days to see where you get Ill give it a try good luck to all who have a go


 Dec 22nd, 2016 at 10:22

Its simple maths, the initial returns are low but the more you put on, the more you get back


 Dec 27th, 2016 at 13:22

im going to start this system today. i don't have stats to hand but U19 and youth football are generally bankers in this system. I have had success by making trebles and 4 folds from the selections i want that arent quite 1/10. couple of tips there hope they help


 Dec 30th, 2016 at 10:04

Some unnecessary stick on this thread in my opinion. I don't think anyone is saying this is a banker. It just highlights a possibility in principle. I don't think any one would actually place £1000 on one bet. The key is to identify your maximum 1 bet stake and look to withdraw when you get to that stage. Some people look to bank some off the top each time a winner is identified. This method suits me nicely. It means I only need to hit 5 in a row before the bet becomes a free one for my betting bank. In essence me and my team class this as a fun relatively risk free bet.


 Feb 2nd, 2017 at 20:44

Hello to everybody Micko70 this is one of the best systems to play I am in for 3 years. In Major Europeans Leagues the possibilities to loose are < 3.2 if you are very well prepared. I started with 100 Euros on 23/11/2013. Every 50 or 60 bets I withdraw the money and I am starting with 1000 Euros. Keep in mind that we can play from 1 to 10 or 15 bets/day on some occasions. In cgmbet that cooperates with OLBG you can find useful tools for this job. Olso and are some powerful tools for this kind of Bet. I lost 6 times for these 3 years. Yesterday 01/02/2017 we had Manchester Un Vs Hull over 0.5 was 1.025!!!!!!! so they push you to play over 1.5 goals but NEVER-NEVER does that mistake. I didn't play it because 1.025 final result 0-0. Yesterday and the day before French cup were amazing to play. 14 games 13 of them over 0.5. only one of them 0-0. Because of my poor experience generally in bet I found this solution as my Holy Gray. I prefer to play over 0.5 instead of a regular game that pays me for ex. 1.60 but the other team scores a goal and then in the rest of the game Catenaccio. This is just my opinion and my experience so far on over 0.5 goals/game. Now I can combine easily 234 even 5 games per bet. But is forbidden for beginners.Generally still looking websites and other tools to make it even better. Please let me know if you have info about that.Thank youRegardsChrisPS: As the most of you here we receive every day a newsletter with tips. Sorry telling that but this week was a disaster. Tell me 1 ticket that won this week. Big risk ok big money ok but is not ok if every day we are losing money. Sorry from the OLBG Team that are sending us their tips but is the truth. Especially for someone like me that my effort all day is to look for games over 0.5. I do not have the time to look for other kinds of bets so I trust the best ones.


 Feb 3rd, 2017 at 00:41

Well done, i know this system works


 Feb 3rd, 2017 at 11:20

You've certainly captured a lot of imaginations with this one Micko70! I like the snowballing idea. Going to investigate a Double Chance version of this. I appreciate it's more of a 40 yarder than tap-in but curious -


 Feb 3rd, 2017 at 12:59

Good luck with that, let me know how u get on


 Feb 8th, 2017 at 18:39

I'm currently on a good run with this one. Im picking set-ups with live games at around 40-60 mins for odds between 1.2 to 1.5. So far so good


 Feb 9th, 2017 at 05:02

Good luck with this

Just a few observations: I was once wiped out when Manchester United entertained lowly Sunderland. For goodness sake there's at least one goal here thinks I. Its impossible for there not to be one goal isn't it? Come 90 minutes and I am eating the carpet which is all I can now afford having lost my entire bank. Experience does not come cheap.Better to approach your bets thinking the impossible is actually fairly likely.I tend to take a contrary view when looking for games to back. VIEW ONE: Why for example do you expect lots of goals from two teams that ALWAYS have lots of goals? Happen this is the week they produce the dreaded 0 - 0. What about considering two teams that come into the match having NOT scored goals? Seeing team 1 has been involved in 3 consecutive 0 - 0 results and team 2 the away team has not scored away in their last two matches gets me thinking: 'How long can 22 men run around a green field and NOT score a goal?'VIEW TWO: Look for patterns which are 'unlikely' to continue. For example all three games in yesterday's Bulgarian league were under 2.5 well maybe today's game will be OVER 2.5 goals.I hope you get what I am saying because a consideration of these alternative views just gives you more to go on in a very difficult and uncertain activity - namely betting.My final observation is this: ALWAYS take something out of your betting bank. I aim to withdraw something every day. Psychologically its vital to be winning something. Oh...and by the way I allow my bank to be 'flexible'. I don't get upset if my 500 pounds sinks to 450 due to a loss. If I then win 10 pounds bank now up to 460. I WILL STILL WITHDRAW THAT 10 POUNDS AS MY DAYS PROFIT. I know there is a tomorrow when from past experience I know I can get my bank up to what it should be AND maybe take another tenner out as profit.

I wonder whether people have even tried doing that recently as here pretty much last informative post was over 1 year ago ...
I'm thinking of giving it another go although i probably do not limit myself to one bet per day and i'm probably using some riskier games aswell where it's goalless at half time so over 0.5 goals in that particular match is available with better odds ...

Game 1 in Armenian Cup was goalless at half-time with over 0.5 available @1.25 - luckily 50th min goal means that i can now wait for the Astana game later today ... So yeah let's see how this goes :)

This is an old post, but a very interesting read.

I myself will be attempting this at over 0.5 goals. I will place my 1st £10 stake on a game today with the 1/10 odds and see how it goes from there.
