I promised that I won't be betting every weekend now that the NFL is over.
But - just like in a gangster movies - this veteran is being dragged back in for one final heist.
I received an email from one of the bookmakers I use and they gave me a free £5 bet as a reward for my loyalty to them.
I used it on an eleven selection accumulator so I very much doubt it has a chance to come win.
Accumulators are one of the bets I used to do a long time ago when I didn't know any better. Nowadays I avoid placing them as there is always one selection that lets the bet down
It was a free bet, at the end of the day. I'm not losing anything - am I?
Find out how it went next week.
