These were all recommended bets earlier in the week from the Live Sports Profit service.

West Ham v Crewe – Both Teams to Score – £3 staked at Stan James at 5/6

Carla Suarez Navarro to beat Ksenia Pervak – £5 staked at Ladbrokes at 4/6

Real Madrid v Barcelona – Xavi to be First Goalscorer @ 14/1 (15.00) Each Way with Bet365 – £1 e/w staked

From a total of £10 staked on 3 bets, 2 of them were losers, the only that was a winner was the tennis match, at the shortest odds of the 3.  Granted the first goalscorer bet was a long shot and fortunately I only staked £3 on the both teams to score (because I only had £6 total in my Stan James account).

Total staked: £10

Total returns: £8.33

Loss: £1.67

So, a small loss on this occasion that would have been offset by either of the other two bets coming in as winners (even if Xavi had scored at any time that would have paid 1/3 odds to return another £5 or so).

My Ladbrokes account is looking fairly healthy at the moment, having deposited £10 last week I have more than doubled it already. My Stan James account on the other hand, is down to only £3.

More bets to come tomorrow for this weekend’s Premier League matches.
