Because we're all so clever.

Anyone got any bets on? Anyone got any tips?

At present I will admit to having money on:

Parma to beat Juve at the new Juve stadium tomorrow (Italian football, it is)

Malaga to beat Grenada in La Liga (money in the bank)

and

the Steelers to win the Superbowl (at 14s it's worth a go, ey?)

but then I did put 10 (nearly 20 dollars of your dollarish money!) on Bolton to beat Man Utd at home - they were at 7s which was ridiculous, even given that it ended 0-5.

Bad bet. The team that loses the Super Bowl has a remarkably consistent history of sucktitude in recent history. The Steelers look to follow that trend with a pathetic opening game against arch-rival Baltimore.

It's a long shot, I know, Mazzy. Especially when we both know the Patriots will win it all.

I heard some crazy nonsense that Quinton "Rampage" Jackson is a 6 to 1 underdog against John "Bones" Jones. I wouldn't actually put money against Jones, but the only way you make good money on MMA betting is taking the risk bets with good payouts.

So my weekend accumulator came in and now my betting account actually has a balance that doesn't need nuking from space.

Anyone want to venture where I should invest my money next? Footbaw, tennis, golf, cricket, wheelchair fencing?

Of course, immediately following my previous post I did nuke my balance from space it was the only way to be sure.

However, I did today win big on the betting:

Fury to beat that guy at 1/16.

Next up, the Pac-Man to beat Juan Boxing El Boxer.
