Default UEFA Cup

Three picks for tomorrow:
Porto, PK, -130 (draw at Pinnacle, win at Canbet)
Rayo Vallecano, +1/2, -130 (SIA)
Celta Vigo +1/2, +200 (Canbet)

Good luck.

And a fourth pick, unusual in style I suppose, don't even know what to call it.
Draw-pick?
Betting Kaiser/PSV to draw, .69 units at 3.25, and .31 units, PSV to win at the same odds.
Effect is +124 on the draw, push if PSV wins.
Good luck.

pok,

so you bet both the draw and the win in particular percentages right?

I usually just go one way.

Why do you feel this is most effective for you?

Turk, this isn't something I usually do.
I'm basically handicapping PSV as the value. I don't want to bet them +1/2 goal, because the price would be so small.
As between draw and win, I decided to play the draw.
But because I don't want to lose my bet if PSV actually wins the game, I'm betting the reverse of a "pick" bet.
If you bet to pick, you're betting your team wins with moneyback insurance in case of a draw.
This is similar, but because there's a greater than usual chance that PSV will PLAY for the draw (point on the road thing), I'm betting them to draw, which would be a success for them, but insuring myself a push if they actually get the win.
Unusual approach, I know, and I haven't seen it elsewhere. But there's no law against it, unless it's a law of logic.

To no avail.
0-3-1 on the day, although only Porto not winning really surprised me. CV was a gamble, sure. PSV's result was within the realm. Rayo? I've got to stop underestimating Alaves, but I'm not alone in that.

-3 units today,
+23.9 in 161 posted plays on this board.

Lost everything as Porto really needed to win for me.

Oh well.
