Atlante v Barcelona

It's the semi-final of the World Club Cup so not sure how seriously Barcelona will take this but going to back them anyway at 1.25!! LOL

Halftime and it's 1-1. Barcelona coming back from 1-0 down. Let's hope they turn it on in the second half!

For the Christmas list:

Atlante are from Mexico. The first US Minister to Mexico, Joel Roberts Poinsett, had a plant named after him. That plant is the POINSETTIA and is indigenous to Mexico.

1-2 to Barcelona after 56 ish minutes. Hoping for 1-3 as I've got to go out shortly.

Barcelona won 3-1 
Profit: £6.80

Philadelphia Flyers @ Pittsburgh Penguins

With the whopping amount of £2.11 left in my bank I decided to have a punt on this when the odds were 1.24. I say when the odds were as I actually had no idea of the score or the stage of th game.

After placing the bet i thought I'd better check up and found Pittsburgh leading 3-1 at the end of the 1st Period.

The final score was 6-1 to Penguins. Perhaps this a better approach to NHL betting for me!!

As for the Christmas List:

Philadelphia was the home town of Sister Sledge. Sledge is another name for SLEIGH

Profit £0.49

Arizona Cardinals @ San Francisco 49ers

This match was the Monday night game. Unfortunately through an internet malfunction during the game I couldn't post it earlier but here it is for reference.

I really thought that the Cardinals would be far too strong for the 49ers here despite being the away team. Hence I took the price of around 1.49 for £10.00.

It was 10-0 to the 49ers when I lost my connection at the end of the 1st Quarter.

The final score was 24-9 to the 49ers. An emphatic and somewhat surprising victory.

The good news is that it ticks a couple of boxes off the Christmas list. I need to get my skates on a bit here so will look for multiple links from now on if they are available.

The first one is obvious with the Arizona CARDinalS in action.

The second is that the match was played at CANDLEStick Park.

Loss: £10.00
