How To Bet On Correct Scores
Choose four outcomes at around 16/1 and for a small stake you could end up winning thousands. This type of bet is commonly called a Lucky 15 because the permutation contains 15 bets. Consider these examples:
You've got to remember this when betting on correct scores. It's alright to get 8 wrong, as long as you get your two correct you'll be able to make money. No one, no web site, no tipster, can predict all the scores. We can't, so don't believe any one who tells you they can call all the scores!
The most frequent scores are 1-1 or 2-1 (to either team). You'll therefore find that bookies only give you 6/1 or 7/1 on these. What you need to do is look for value in scores that could potentially be out of the ordinary. For example if you bet on all 10 games to finish with 3-1 scorelines, you might find that in some cases you get an unsuspected winner, for example, Southampton have an off-day and get beaten 3-1 at Bolton, losing 2-1 until the last minute until Bolton get another goal 'that doesn't reflect Southampton's performance' as the pundits would say. These scorelines could return you 16/1. At these odds you can bet £1 on each of the 10 games, and if you get only 1 winner you've profited.
Consider this example:

Place a small unit stake, around 10p per bet, and this will be multiplied by 15 to calculate your full stake.

You might find that these types of bet don't win that often, so we call this strategy the 'Long Shot'. However, remember that the one time you do get two, three, or four results come in, you've made a fair bit of profit. You've just got to hold out until you get that one week where you hit the jackpot.
Use this strategy in conjunction with another strategy that will cover any losses1.85传奇sf on this type of bet. For example, place £1.50 on an Evens single bet to cover the potential loss on the Long Shot. Alternatively, treat this bet as it is named, a long shot, and write off the stake as you would do with your quid on the lottery each week!
