A new series from CaughtOffside that could help you become a millionaire…or lead to imminent bankruptcy.
Every day we will put a bet on a game and keep a running total throughout the season. The bets we make may not be earth shattering, although on occasion we will of course go ‘chasing the big win’.
Okay, so our Europa League seven game accumulator flat-lined, we got five out of seven correct but Tottenham and Roma refused to play ball.
Tonight we are wagering on Barcelona running amok against FC Porto in the Super Cup Final in Monaco. We are punting on the Catalan side winning despite having a two goal handicap, i.e. they need to win by three or more goals.
Our running total charts our success, all starting with that original £5 stake.
£5 Barcelona to win despite two goal handicap 11/4
