boy oh boy do these friendly games are swingy or what... not sure of the odds at all, do they represent value or not... teams making like 11 substitutions with the only thing on their minds is to get players gradually back to action, test some new dudes,new schemes etc. not a very favourable situation to look for value imho (well maybe with the exception of backing a clear underdog)

Anyone betting on a friendly is really taking a punt,I saw Real Madrid beat Man City and they were playing very good and Inter have lost the past couple of games. I would have to go for the Real win and if they continue playing so well could give us a clue for next seasons Champions League,as long as the big names don't leave before it starts.
Football is an ideal game for betting, for example easier spotting value there than in horse racing or tennis IMO especially because infos about key players missing or the whole team having diarrhea or anything like that are running through twitter channels within seconds. You are going to know the same about your horse or Sharapova only when it's too late since they don't have that many people involved with anyway. Summer friendlies are only good for over/unders 'cuz the results are the last thing these teams care about in a friendly game.
I don't know what makes me great, but I recall the last time I felt really great it had nothing to do with neither football nor gambling. So there's that. Risk everything is a great advice, though if you are part of a team and give 100% it does not automatically make your teammates reach their limit too. Also, I didn't understand entirely what you were talking about to be honest.
