OzeSports Hundred Dollar Challenge
Hey all,

After discussing with several people in the chat box, I have made a thread regarding the OzeSports Hundred Dollar Challenge.

The concept of this challenge is simple: Start with $100.00, bet the balance of your account on a market around 1.10 each week (ie. let it roll), and after 52 weeks you should have approximately 142 times the amount you started with (eg. $100 will become approx $14,200). You can start with $10.00 if you want.

In order to be successful, we have to lay out some rules/guidelines that people should stick to. I have found in the past in order to complete these 'rolling balance' type challenges, the hardest part is sticking to the rules laid out at the beginning ie. not betting twice a week, not taking too large odd etc.

Following are some rules I have come up with (feel free to leave a reply with suggestions):

Rules:
  • Can only place one bet in any given date range (refer to spreadsheet below) at a minimum of 1.10 odds (this can be made up of several sure things if you feel the need ie. 3x 1.03s).
  • The Min Bet for any given Week is the smallest amount that can be placed eg. By the start of Week 10 your balance should be $259.37, you may have more if your bets have been slightly bigger than 1.10, refer to the spreadsheet linked below for assistance).

Following are some suggested guidelines I have come up with through my past experiences (again, feel free to leave a reply with suggestions):

'Don'ts':
  • Betting on Womens' Sports Incorrect
  • Betting on short odds Tennis h2h (the greats such as Nadal and Fed are getting on with age now, they are becoming more prone to slip ups). Incorrect
  • Betting on ht/ft in sport (teams don't play to be in the lead at half time). Incorrect
  • Betting on sports where the majority of teams generally win a large percentage of their games per season (i.e. MLB/NBA). Incorrect
  • Betting on the same sport/team in back to back weeks can generally increase your chances of hitting a big upset Incorrect
  • Betting on racing, such as horses to place, can often yield some locks on big day events, however, greyhounds are pretty risky - only takes one bump and you're done Incorrect

Some interesting upsets and nearly upsets...

Freo lost paying 1.05 by 58 St Kilda...
Port only beat the Melbourne Demons by 3
North lost paying 1.20 vs carlton
Geelong only won by 7 vs GWS...

Sharks were very lucky to win at 1.14 vs the highlanders. They were certainly not the better team on the day, but dominated at set piece which was enough to get them across the line...

I forgot to put mine on, so I will risk it and go 2x 1.10s this week...

Spready updated
