Izzy's Food Club Blog
Welcome to my Food Club bets page!

Disclaimer: Firstly, let me say that I am still learning. If you follow my bets, it's at your own risk! Both Cameila and Garet win more often than me, and I recommend you follow them.
I cannot guarantee that I will update my bets every day, or far in advance of the betting window closing. I am providing my bets as a reference to anyone who's interested, for fans of my witty commentary, and because sometimes Garet skips, and every so often Cameila's bets are unrealistic.

Note: If your odds for a particular bet turn out different than mine, it's not an error; Betting odds change throughout the day.
Also, some days I forget to change the day/date when I post my bets, so check the round number and comments. I add to/change this page throughout the day, so check back often!

As always, I welcome feedback! If you have suggestions, questions, spot a mistake, or just want to chat, feel free to send me a neomail!

Food Club Vocabulary

Arena - Random groupings of four pirates who are competing against each other. There are five possible arenas to bet on.

Conservative - Likely to win, low returns. Odds of each bet are close to 2:1.

Easter egg - A hidden link, message, or secret feature.

Food Adjustment, FA - A measure of advantage or disadvantage for each pirate from the daily food selection. For each arena, there are 10 food items that the pirates will be eating. There are three possible outcomes for each item/pirate; Like (+), Neutral, Dislike (-).

FC - Food Club

Gambit - 1. A Food Club sub-game played in the Community » Neoboards » Games » Food Club Competitions and Chat Topic message board.
2. Gambit Bet - A single bet involving all five arenas. Typically comprised of pirates that the bettor believes will win in each arena.
3. Gambit betting or Gambit Set - A set of bets that use only the five pirates that the bettor believes will win in each arena. Contains no safeties.

Max Bet - Betting the maximum amount of neopoints allowed for your account, OR; Betting the amount of neopoints that will result in winning the maximum amount of 1,000,000 NP.

M.O.T.R., MOTR - Middle Of The Road: 50/50-ish chance to win, mid returns. Odds of each bet are close to 30-50:1

A Perfect Set - A set of bets where only the winners have been chosen in combinations that result in the maximum possible return. Extremely, exceedingly rare. Lightning striking! Go out and buy a real lottery ticket!

Pirates overdue for a win - List of Pirates who have lost more than their individual average winning percentage.

Positive/Negative Arena - To find the value of an arena, convert the pirate's odds to percentage values, add those percentage values, and subtract the total from 100%. (ie: If the odds for pirates in an arena are 2:1, 6:1, 5:1 and 10:1. Converting to percentages yields 50%, 16.67%, 20%, and 10%; for a total of 96.67%. 100% - 96.67% = 3.33%.) If the resulting percentage is positive (more than 0%), the arena is positive.

Risky - Unlikely to win, high returns. Odds of each bet are high (70-100:1) to extreamly high (100+:1)

Safety - A bet involving a pirate with poor odds of winning.

Schadenfreude - Deriving pleasure, joy, or self-satisfaction from learning of or witnessing the troubles, failures, or humiliation of another.

Screenie - An image capture of the display seen on a screen at a given time. Typically done to prove the results of an outcome that is only visible to a particular user. The term screenie was likely derived from the Macintosh OS screenshot utility of the same name.

Set - A collection of 2 - 10 bets without duplicates.

Streak - When an inividual pirate has either won or lost for several rounds in a row.

Ten Betting, 10 Bet - Including one specific pirate in all 10 of your bets.

Upset - When a pirate who statistically should have won, loses.

-

My betting style: When I make bets I try not to be too risky, but I also don't like placing a bet with odds less than 10:1. My thinking on this is that if you place 10 bets for the maximum amount at a minimum risk of 10:1, and just one wins, then you at least get your money back!
I often place at least one bet that includes all five arenas, but as a rule I try to include as few arenas as possible in each bet, minimizing the risk of an upset causing it to lose.
In the vein of minimizing risk, I try not to "10 Bet" any one pirate. If that one pirate loses, all your bets lose. This is also known as putting all your eggs in one basket.
I do consider the odds and food adjustment, etc. I don't know that it helps much, as my friend Cameila (who bets with her 'gut') wins more often.
