We’re not much of a betting crew at TFTSE Towers, but our curiosity often gets the better of us. How often do we bet, about twice a year. One of our accounts is with William Hill, here’s the link Can you resist? Probably. We couldn’t. How did they get us to sign up? We saw a get a Free £20 bet, or something like that, and that was it. We lost three-quarters of it betting on AFC Bournemouth to get a win. What happened they drew.

Remember Notts County at home in 2010? It was when Josh McQuid could score a goal, but the game is best remembered for the Cherries throwing away a two-goal lead in injury time. We lost £15 of our £20, I say our £20, but it was £20 we never had, but we still had a fiver left.

We decided that our match predictions were generally pretty crap and decided to try an experiment for the next few months. We started with an imaginary £20 and would split this across several scores on the next Cherries match. How did we fare, not too bad, after a couple of games our imaginary £20 had become around £40, But, as you can guess as soon as we started betting with real cash it all went tits up pretty quickly and a real £20, yes our real £20 was gone.

You would have thought that we had learnt our lesson, but Bet 365 tempted us back. They promised us a free £10 on sign up and access to live match highlights. Never saw any highlights, and lost most of our free £10.

It’s been a good few years since our foray into the market, but the Cherries journey to the Championship has tempted us to think again. We decided to be a bit cautious to see how we fared in our first few games. Going well so far, so, we have headed back to William Hill where the latest odds are 33/1 for the Cherries to win the title. We reckon that might be a little presumptuous, but we can finally put that last fiver on for a quarter of the odds for a top three finish. Who’s going to join us? By our reckoning, we’re set to make £46.25 without spending a penny.
