Interview with The Footy Tipster member Chuck!
Toby – Thanks so much for doing this interview, can you let us know a little about yourself?
Chuck – Hello my name is Chuck, 24 year old from the USA, currently reside north of Detroit, Michigan. Aspiring to be a wild land firefighter although had a set back with shoulder surgery recently.
I have been wagering on sports for 8 years, although won’t lie those first years were tough, doing silly accumulators to make a quick returns.
I modified the betting strategy over the years to get most months in the green, mind you not heroic winnings but enough that I’m having fun wagering while making a couple bucks.
Toby – That sucks about your shoulder, I hope you get a speedy recovery! How did you first hear about The Footy Tipster?
Chuck – A random google search. There was a lot of sites to choose from, but this was the one I consistently came back too.
Toby – Naturally we love hearing that! haha! What other betting websites do you like?
Chuck – For American sports scoresandodds.com it is a great “free match up” tool which crunches a lot of data and gives you split for vs lefty, home/away, bullpen, etc, also carries vegas odds.
For Football soccerway.com
For all sports oddsportal.com is an awesome site, lists 30-50 books odds on any match up. Also has the per minute shifts in odd movement so you can track from opening to where it currently is. And sportsplays.com is a free betting site which has a great “public consensus” so you can see what the public on the site is wagering on, mind you its free so a lot of “squares” wagering on it, fading the public=money.
Toby – What football teams to you support?
Chuck – Ha Detroit Lions but that “american football” now isn’t it. Well id rather watch paint dry then watch the MLS (the USA soccer league), the leagues I have on HD cable are Italy, Spain and England, anything else I have to stream on the internet which is rough at times. I have a soft spot for Torino though.
Toby – Would you ever bet against your favourite teams?
Chuck – Yes – if anything I don’t like betting on my favorite team. I’d rather lose a bet against my team and get the consolation that my team won.
Toby – What do you love most about football betting?
Chuck – Unders and underdogs – not the most glorious of choices but it gets me wins!
Toby – What would be your biggest advice with football betting?
Chuck – Don’t try to be a hero, Rome wasn’t built in a day, there’s always that next bet.
Toby – Thanks so much for answering these, is there anything else you would like to say?
A Couple NFL wagers:
Detroit Lions win NFC North +350, Detroit Lions win NFC Conf +2200
DET regular season wins over 8½ +100
Lions for a break out year this year, season long bets, invest in these! Haven’t been this confident in them since their 10-6 season.
Also really glad I found TFT, very good information!!
Thanks so much to Chuck for taking the time to answer these!
