I havent been betting for some 3 months now. It's never a good idea to bet on the last few rounds on national championships or European or World Champonships, too many upsets happen.

Yeah but you want to bet on the underdogs so the upsets pay out. I reccomend doing plenty of bets, so chances are your gonna gain :D

Not to curse my luck. But i have a £40 bet on Rooney for topgoalscorer at like 14-1 :D

I usually bet at my local. But i reccomend anyone bets on the snooker online. You can bet on who is going to win each frame. I made like £700 on that lately.

Although ive taken alot of beatings over the years too :D

Check out the old betting thread, it was just me :embarass:

I haven't done it in a while though, for no reason in particular. Maybe it wasn't good for me :undecide:

That said, I was pretty bloody good at it back in my punting days :D

i haven't put money on it, but I'm looking at a half/full double. Draw at halftime, Czechs to win at full time.

Im not going to bet any money on this tournament. I allready lost many money on Germany - Latvia and France - Greece match!

I guess i have to wait for the Italian league to start before ill start to bet with money again.

Me and 14 of my friends put $62 each ($2 per game) and each wrote up scores for every match. Whoever predicts most exact results gets more than $900.

I am currently topping the table, together with another guy, with 6 exact results. Closest competitors have 4.

So myself and the second leader decided not to take any chances and finish this in a partnership- basically competing against everyone else, and no matter who gets most results (either me or him), we split all the money.

With just three games left, I have strong chances to secured $450.

I don't know why, but I have exactly predicted all three groups stage games by Greece! Including a 2-1 result vs Portugal in the opening match :D.
