The Safety Net: Panathinaikos to progress in Champions League

| 02.08.2011

Six successive safety net bet victories have taken our bank balance to its highest ever level and we are relying on Panathinaikos extending our current winning sequence today in the second leg of their Champions League qualifier with OB Odense.

Polona Hercog was a winner in the opening round of the Mercury Insurance Open tennis yesterday when beating Natalie Grandin in three sets and this increased our betting ammunition to £451.50.

We turn our attentions to the third qualifying round of the Champions League tonight, with FC Copenhagen and Panathinaikos both likely to win their second legs.

However, with Copenhagen playing away to Shamrock Rovers and winning their opening leg, we have sided with Panathinaikos.

The Greeks were unfortunate not to win the opening leg of the tie, when they conceded a stoppage-time equaliser in a 1-1 with OB Odense, but this result still puts them in pole position now they are back on their own patch.

Panathinaikos currently top the Greek League six games into the new season and have avoided defeat in all of their three home games, conceding just once in the process.

Although a goalless draw will send them through on away goals, it is unlikely that they will set up defensively to play for this result, as it is a risky strategy.

With Panathinaikos priced at 8/13 in the Champions League betting to win the second leg inside 90 minutes, we will be staking £32.50 on this result in order to fulfil our aim of making £20 each day.

Current Status
Bank: £451.50
Today’s stake: £32.50
Best case scenario: £484
Worst case scenario: £419

Last Safety Net bet: Polona Hercog to beat Natalie Grandin @ 1/7

Wealth warning: although we are confident the safety net bet’s strategy will be profitable over a period of time, the nature of sport means we cannot guarantee you will win every single time.
