    CW Betting Thread

    We're going to start off with SGD 20 (USD ~16) in a bet365 account. Any profits made by the end of a certain period (tbd) will be donated to a charity (tbd), while the initial $20 will either kickstart a new round of this or return to my pocket, subject to how close I am to being out on the streets.

    We will only be betting on cricket.

    How we're going to decide what to bet on is basically by a simple voting system. I'll try to get odds and options up at least a day before a match starts, and once there are enough votes I'll proceed to place the bet. Besides that anyone can propose a bet e.g. Player X top scorer, Player Y motm, etc etc and we can all vote for it if it sounds good.

    The amounts to bet are something I haven't quite thought too much about yet, but for now it's just going to be $2 on every bet. Thoughts and suggestions needed.

    If this fails the thread can always be used to discuss betting anyways.

    Awesome idea - you will need a set quorum of votes to make a decision.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Appreciate the enthusiasm guys, thanks.


    As for the minimum number of votes Hurricane, I didn't include it because I wasn't sure how many people would be voting and stuff. Hoping 10 isn't too much, will roll with that for now.

    Feb 27, 2014

    $10 | $1.062


    1st ODI: West Indies v England at North Sound

    $2 | $1.80


    3rd Test: South Africa v Australia at Cape Town

    ...SA | Draw | Aus
    $2.20 | $3.75 | $3.00

    Draw no bet

    This is now an option ftr, if people want to vote for it.

    Just try to put a bit less money on it, don't want to piss my $20 away if there's a draw.

    pretty cool idea
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Not sure how changeable the weather can be in Cape Town, but I'd back benchmark's suggestion based on how the forecast is clear for the 5 days of the Test.

    I'd suggesting starting off with smaller amounts as well.

    Put it in Betfair and just "lay" the draw.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
