Saddle Boots*

(* apparently this is a real "thing": I wouldn't know, I am to fashion as Herod is to childcare)

OK, first betting one of the season. You've got £20 and you can make a single bet of the whole amount or you can make two bets of £10 (any other bets will be deemed invalid and you must bet). Any winning stakes returned, of course. Winner is person with highest final amount.

Bet One: Result: Oxford win (4/5); Draw (5/2); Walsall win (7/2)

Bet Two: Team Scoring First: Oxford (3/5); Walsall (8/5); no goals (10/1)

Bet Three: Total Goals in Game: 0-1 (3/1); 2-3 (evens); 4 or more (9/5).

Tiebreak: time of first goal, nearest wins, if two are equidistant, earlier time wins. No repeats. If there are no goals (and no-one predicts that in the TB) then the latest time wins.

£20 on a Walsall win.

Not because I think it'll happen but if it does, this may be some consolation.

£20 on no goals.

Does my TB have to be 0 to match my bet? I'm just thinking that if we all end up with no pounds then I don't get a chance at TB. I'll say 38 just in case.

I don't see why TB has to be consistent with the bet! Strictly to be consistent with no goals, time of first goal has to be >90 doesn't it?! That's why I've said in event of their being no goals (and there are still ties on winning) latest prediction wins.

£10 on Walsall scoring first and £10 on there being 0-1 goals in the game. They'll score in the 47th minute.

Well, for once the bookie ends up losing a little.

Relative to original wealth endowment:

-28 The Bookmaker
-20 Boogie, Hog and Hoglette
+6 AColi, Geoff and Old Ab
+70 Radley Ram

So it's some small consolation and a boot-setting task to the Rambler.
