No such thing as moral victories in the betting game

BUT if there were, then TIALTNGO had a moral victory at the weekend. Close, but no cigar type of thing. We left our money in Paddy Powers but we got a good run for it at least.

DRAW YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS: The above result meant TIALTNGO took no money of Paddy Power's at the weekend.

Have a look here to see in detail the bets I tabbed last weekend and I was a good deal closer than the week before. Well that’s a bit like saying Mayo were closer to championship pace in the second half in Tuam last Sunday than the first half – they couldn’t be any worse. And it would have taken an inverted genius to get a worse result than my efforts two weekends ago.

Anyway we’ll briefly review our punts from the weekend. Firstly we did a 20euro double on Donegal to beat Westmeath (11/10) which they comfortably managed but it was Kerry of all teams who undid our bet, by only managing to draw against Dublin. That undid our bet, which gave accumulative odds of a little over 3/1.

We did a more optimistic five way accum then but putting Kerry and Donegal, as we did, in that, the Kingdom fecked things up. So too did Derry, who lost a game they had a great chance to win against Tyrone. Kildare and Laois, and Donegal of course, all came in but nearly never bulled the cow.

There’s not much football action this weekend but we’ll have a look on Friday for some value bets for the weekend and possibly glance at some interesting ante-post prices for the All-Ireland championship and provincial titles.
