It's the first day of the football league season and I still haven't placed a season bet.
I don't even know if I will this year.
I have placed the season handicap bets as per usual, but I haven't considered any league winners markets until this morning.
It's after midday as I write this and I have yet to get the thinking cap on. This is unlike me.
The Premier League kicks off next week. I know the team I'm backing there. It'll be Manchester United. Why do I think this? Because I read an interesting stat about Jose Mourinho.
Of the top five teams that he has coached, he has won a league title in his second year at all of them. That's good enough for me.
Watch it fail now that I've written that!
