Beat the Bookies (Summer): Week 1

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 31/05/2012

WELL the regular football season of Beat the Bookies did just that. The total profit for the season was just under 60 quid, around 6 times the level stake of a tenner. League Two was the biggest area of success - making a £200 profit. The Premier League was the least successful - a loss of £170 was recorded.

Anyway, with so much sport around this summer we thought we might as well continue the series betting on whatever takes place each weekend.

Rugby League

  • Salford v Catalans Dragons - home win (3.53, Pinnacle). Catalans Dragons just don't travel, their recent form is poor, and Salford had a terrific result at the weekend.


  • French Open Winner - David Ferrer (EW) (41, Bodog). There's little value outside of the Big 3 and on clay Ferrer is not far behind them.
  • French Open Winner - Angnieska Radwnanska (14, Youwin). She might not be the strongest player but clay suits her game and she's starting to win tournaments after a few years of doing well except against the very top players - that now looks to have changed.
