    :D I'd be annoyed if the first one didn't work out but the rest did, that would probably drive me to, erm, being annoyed! I just made a few others, some 8-way with half decent odds, except it's all on people like England, Wales, Austria, Netherlands and other 'sure things' to win.

    Accumulators are a good way to have some interest in random games though. I do the odd Yankee or something, but at minimal stakes per bet (to ensure your overall stake isn't too big). At least you might win something like that!

    Had a few 5-7 accumulators come in though...2 for about 100 or so.

    there is a reason why they are good odds.

    I think I did for Austria, but in a different accumulator. That works out to be something like 80 for a four or five way. :D I've put on four anyway, as I had 8 left in my Betfair account - here's hoping for almost 30k, or one of the others would be nice..

    You guys got any tips for the football today? I'm looking over the games, and I can't see anything that stands out as a good bet. :/

    I only back away teams. Usually do a four team accumulator, and I don't play unless I'd win over 150. Won 270 last time.

    I know someone who had 40 on Greece to win the European Championships 2004, before the tournament even started. At 100/1. >:(

    Anyway, today I went for -

    Sunderland away at Fulham
    Bury away at Dagenham and Redbridge
    Hartlepool away at Walsall
    Peterborough away at Carlisle.

    It's not going well (Hartlepool are losing already). I also had a bit of a 50/50 as to whether to back Cov or not (away at Wolves). I decided against it, and they're one up already.

    If anyone has a Paddy Power account you might like to check it as they seem to have given everyone a free 10 bet \o/

    Gone for a Villa/Spurs/Chelsea/Liverpool accumulator, about 7-1.
