A frustrating last few days as I've been winning some losing some and my bankroll has hardly grown since my last post but finally back to form and tonight I decided to ignore Matt Abraham's trade (which would have won btw) and I'm hoping that burnley are going to stage one of the greatest FA Cup comebacks of all time against a resurgent West Ham side.
The opportunity to back West Ham at over 1.80 tonight was too good to refuse, but being a cautious trader, I never like to put all my eggs in one basket, so I stuck money on the draw as well at 3.95, effectively dutching them, but slightly in favour of the West Ham win as I saw this as the most likely outcome.
This was a full bankroll job and is probably not recommended but I was so convinced about this game that I just had to go for it. I started the night with £700 (up from my initial £500 as part of my daft challenge). This will now be over £900 tomorrow morning and hopefully over £1300 if Burnley can stick a few more goals in 🙂
