I can remember my Dad telling me four 4/6 winners in a yankee bet was always better than four 12/1 losers!
i agree but four 4/6 winners on a nap thread with a few days left and you are quite a long way behind is'nt the way to go.. the only point im trying to make is why enter a naps competition and not try to win it by picking short priced horses..seems silly to me when you are for example at least 30 points down with a few days left. i thought the all idea of entering a naps league was to win it..i guess i must be wrong though as people seem to be content in finishing mid table.. personally i would rather be rock bottom (which i am)but at least i know i have tried to win the competition...
the online sporting life paper ran a naps competition for quite a while and i finished near the bottom most times ,but on one occasion i won it by selecting a 100/1 winner, which earned me a free day out with all expenses paid and 50 quid betting money to Haydock Park so for me it does pay off to try and win a competition..
sorry if im coming across as a boring old fart, but i just cant understand the mentality of people entering a competition and not trying to win a competition..
