The other day, when I was looking through the football games to wager on, a thought struck me - I hardly ever bet on the first weekend of the football season these days.
So, I decided to close the browser and just see how things would have played out had I placed a bet on the games.
I would have lost most of my selections.
I was looking for both teams to score in the Manchester United versus Tottenham Hotspur game (United won 1-0), Arsenal to win by 2 goals or more against West Ham (West Ham won by 2), and Chelsea vs Swansea to have over 2.5 goals (this would have won).
Evidence that's why I don't bet on the first weekend of football!
