Real Betis



  • @janner73 interesting point. And very much agree that FI needs all sorts. I would argue that it has always been the case that those who plan ahead will always do better than a short term punter. If you are just looking for interest in a game then a straight bet would be better for you I would have thought.



  • @NewUser731 Completely agree that planning ahead is always the most profitable. It's just a lot more noticeable in the last few weeks how short-term the market is reacting and that isn't necessarily a good thing.



  • @janner73 very much so. I've seen it from both sides. Sold out of Lukaku pre-game at his peak. Couldn't sell Depay in time and have watched him fall. I think the platform is trying to find its equilibrium.



  • @NewUser731 Yeah lots of new users and the £1000 risk free promo as well.

    Fortunately after stating that my only pre-season loss was down to the Spanish FA moving the goalposts on fixtures.....On Betis !!!

    I reinvested after they once again moved the goalposts.
    I took another punt a few days ago....Bartra, Canales, Tello, Fekir and the Moron.
    I don't do twitter, I don't identify as a male birdy and I'm neither in the habit of preening or performing a dance for my potential mates. It simply doesn't sit right with me.
    Today however it seems I have reason to thank the tweeters.

    A word of caution. When the Spanish announce fixtures, they are prone to changing them around.
    Added to which Borja Iglesias has a dodgy ankle, the risk that he's rushed back into action too soon, and subsequently out for a few weeks as a result, put me off.



  • I do actually think this rise puts their players at more like the correct value. Tello, Borja Iglesias and Canales were all way too cheap before tbh.



  • @BradleyD

    This was due in large part to pre-season.
    Whilst most teams were getting some sort of attention and coverage, Betis played their pre-season in Mexico against their club sides, whilst there were high profile games in the US. After returning they played a couple of teams from the Segunda.

    I couldn't get any details from these games and it was tough to guess as to how they would set-up and perform.
    I think we have the answers now.
    I'm not a big fan of the over rated Lo Celso.
    Fekir is a better player and will get the best out of those around him.



  • Pedraza seems to have been missed out in the betis rush. He’s classed as a mid playing as full back which may not be ideal but with Fekir as forward no reason why he’s not in with a shout for mid PB, also he’s a decent player and young and 52p



  • 52p vs Canales @ 96p playing in the no10 position vacated by Lo Celso.
    I'll stick.
    Pedraza was in my pre-season port until I saw where he was playing.
    Which encouraged me to top up on Bartra.

    Still, a far better shout than Mandi, who's not going to return much sitting on the bench - some are lacking in their due diligence looking at these rises.



  • @C-Arroyo
    Good to see you back!



  • Good point but Canales has shot up already and Pedraza hasn’t, so I’m anticipating the market rather than picking nailed-on PB winners.
