The Betting Thread

  • CHB will be closing down as of 31st July 2021. It's been a brilliant experience to run the website for the past 9 years, however it's time for me to move onto different projects. Thanks to every single person involved, from staff, former staff, posters old and current. All support means more than anyone knows. Thanks for your understanding.

I see the Jazza Dickens is at 5.00 to win v Leigh Wood I know Dickens has had issues and hasn’t been able to push on when he has stepped up still seems quite wide for outright an outright win? Anybody have any thoughts?
I think it's a decent bet. Jazza's tricky and nobody has an easy night against him at this level. Certainly worth a punt at 5/1.

Yeah that’s my feeling see it more as 3.25 shot points or stoppage are even more attractive at 7.00 and 9.00. I feel there is value there in what’s basically two British level operators going head to head in an even fight. I sometimes wonder if at this level some of the guys price it almost off their record on paper.

Backed Carroll after round 1 £50 11/10.

Skybet got inplay badly wrong.

No doubt ill back dome donkies next week Cheltenham

i had a tenner on him to win in round 11 @66/1 cashed out in the 10th because the corner were showing no talk of pulling him out and thought they'd just let it go through to the end. I had money on the points victory too so thought id double up only for them to do what they should have done long before and throw in the towel.

£110 in the end but still stings that i should have hung on and i very rarely cash out in boxing. FFS

got to be a given that Arsenal will get tanked tonight (and I'm an arsenal fan)

We've got an awful defence when they've had time to train together properly so with so much time out they aren't going to be playing together as a team any better.

Man City Win and BTTS is a decent shout.

And perhaps Aguero to score first and Man city 4-1 or 5-1 as a long shot

request a bet shout from me is Aguero to score a header and Arsenal to miss a penalty

Any bets on the UFC

Been working like crazy so not been watching much of build up.

Thinking of having Rose and Masvidal.


2 theories I have.

Rose been training with her husband who is a world clasd striker

And Masvidal u look at Usman and then Ferguson with the change of opponet then Masvidal will literally fight anywhere doesnt give a fook.

Know he is underdog but been a strange year so thats what im going with.

No decided on Aldo fight yet.

Nice to have a good card few beers loose some money be good night

Well let’s face it, Rose was kind of dominating in the first fight before not letting go of a kimura and getting dropped on her head. She’s very technical and yep working with Berry will help refine her kickboxing even more, which should suit her against the brawling style of Andrade.

As for Masvidal, man I just can’t help but feel that this is his crowning moment? I know everyone says “I’ve been a fan forever...” but honestly I have been an MMA fan for almost 20 years and I’ve seen this guy put in work from day 1. Never been finished in UFC with arguably 4-5 split decisions he probably should have got, yet he just got no love, no traction, so this amazing late career acknowledgement is awesome and I’d love to see it come together with the title?!

That’s purely a gut feeling, but I’ve just got it, that he’s going to get the win. Fucking love the guy! If he wins I’ll be up there with Maidana-Broner levels of excitement.

Aldo - Yan is a tough one. I’d stay away from it.

Fair play. I am not sure about saying he was a armchair United than lol.

UFC a bust.

I knew 1st round Masvidal was on to a loss. Rose did well to survive

I did win £200 on Norwich City getting relegated

Stand to win £150 if Leeds United win Championship

Spurs really put a dent in my profits this season. Had them top 4.

There was a decent bet Vardy is 1/4 to win goldenboot I don't usually bet on short odds but with a 3 goal advantage not bad
