    Soooooooo, we've now reset the Watford betting league in time for the new season, congratulations to Hornmeister who won least seasons tournament and won the £45 (before kindly donating it back for this seasons tournament)

    So if you feel like entering for a chance to win a £65 prize, here's the rules:


    The Set-up



    Firstly, all bets are theoretical, you don't actually have to stake any money to be involved! Everyone on the forum has an unlimited amount of money (this means if all your bets lose, it means nothing, just enter again the next cycle!) and has £100 to spend each cycle. You can split this into a maximum of 3 separate bets.

    There will be 2 cycles per week where you can place bets. The first cycle starts on Monday morning (around 9AM) and will last until Tuesday morning (around 9AM). If one of your bets is for a game on Monday, you'll need to post them before kick-off, no more bets will then be accepted until Thursday at 9AM, and will need to be posted before Friday morning. All bets placed need to be played within the cycle (aka if you place a bet on Monday for a game on Wednesday, that would be ok. If you wanted to bet on a game on Saturday, you'd need to do it during Thursdays cycle).


    The forum member with the highest amount of profit on the 1st June 2017 will win £45 (sent to you via Paypal or bank transfer, whichever you prefer )


    The naff rules and stuffz:

    • Please post your bets so that I'll easily be able to tell which bets are your NAP, NB and wildcard. Also please include odds, you can either just use your bookmaker of choice or use oddschecker to get the best odds for your bet. Please also post the bookie where you sourced the odds from.
    • No in-play bets (will be too hard to verify odds and timings etc)
    • No long-time frame bets (aka Chelsea to win the league, bets will have to be settled within the cycle)
    • If someone's doing well and you end up actually placing bets on their selections, please don't criticize them for losing!
    • Neither me or WFC Forums are responsible for any losses that may occur if you do decide to stake real money off peoples tips

    After each cycle i'll post up a spreadsheet with the league tables and a bunch of semi-interesting stats for you all. The spreadsheet can be found here: (will change this once i've actually done it)

    First cycle will start tomorrow. Feel free to ask any questions.

    For those that played last year, the only real difference is instead of being given 3 bets (£50, £25, £10) - you're now given £100 to split between a maximum of 3 bets as you wish (so could do £95 on one bet, then £5 on another, or £33.33, £33.33, £33.33 - Your choice!)

    I think this will allow a bit more freedom and should reward clever staking (if we see any! :naughty:) a bit more.

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    I'm in! £100 this time and can be split however we like over the NAP, NB and Wild?

    You posted just as I posted! Hopefully the post above yours will clear up any confusion. NAP, NB and wildcard are no more. You have £100 to spend and can split it any way you wish (up to a maximum of 3 bets per cycle, so you could still stick with that "system" if you wanted, or you could just lump all £100 on one bet). Does that make sense? Sometimes I just write and think it all makes sense haha.

    Likewise if anyone new has any questions and wants to get involved but is a bit confused, let me know!

    Yeah that makes sense - sorry, was jumping the gun a bit!

    Makes it a bit more tactical as well!

    Just thinking, can you arrange it again like last year so that I beat Meh! by a tiny amount, just to annoy him?



    :jumping1:

    Arrange it... again?

    Sounds like a conspiracy to me. I want an investigation into some sort of match fixing.
     
  10. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator


    It was scandalous. Scandalous I tells thee! :rant:

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    Cracking start by everyone! Maybe best to avoid the Olympics going forward :doom:

    2 wins out of 10 settled bets so far, sounds about right :sign13:
     
  17. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    Never been more happy to lose!

    This seasons results page. I won't be doing the individual cycle part (too much effort and there's apparently a max sheet size on Google docs which expired around cycle 70ish) this time around. Updated my signature to reflect the new spreadsheet as well.

    I remembered! Gonna win this now.

    Spreadsheet updated and can be found in my signature below. There's an awful lot of red on there!
     
  23. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    Do I not get anything in the Bet win % column? 2 wins out of 9 so far.

    (Still heavily in the red of course but It'll at least make me feel a bit better!)

    Apologies, your ROI was also wrong. Both fixed.
     
  25. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    Cool. Thanks!
     
  26. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    Villa 4 minutes from winning. :rant:

    In the words of Harvey Specter, Godamnit.

    My £30 double came in, great odds for that! Fingers crossed for my big single tonight, will put me back in the running..
     
  28. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    It came in. This has to be one of the best rounds so far - lots of winners and finally I got one!
