    Decided to have a few bets in the Euros, they’re not anywhere near the same stakes as my horse racing bets.

    25 points Belgium to beat Russia @ 1.02/1
    8 points Denmark to beat Finland 2-0 @ 4.7/1
    4 points Denmark to beat Finland 3-0 @ 10/1

    Don’t think you have got much value with 1/50 Belgium GT.

    It’s 1.02/1, TTC, ie I’ve always converted decimal odds to fractions. In decimal terms it’s 2.02

    With Denmark losing their talisman and play maker, suppose I should’ve laid those bets back after the Erikson incident, just seemed so disloyal to the man.

    Theory behind today’s bets on Denmark Nathan was: I was pretty sure Finland would defend for 90 mins. Always think when that happens, if the attacking side gets one goal the defending team have to change tactics. ie If the attcking side gets one goal they’re likely to get two or three. 2-0 or 3-0 is imo a better bet than 1-0.

    Denmark bet to win the Championship was (when Erikson was playing): Denmark were the 10th shortest price outright, therefore would not have been a surprise to reach the last 8 (quarter-finals)… And then – always think with an outsider is important to have a bloody good goalkeeper – they could easily have pulled off an upset or two… All that was totally changed shortly before half time.

    I’ll keep the thread as it is because it’s too complicated, but with Czech Rep now 2-0 up I’ve cashed out for a very small profit whatever happens. :good:
