Lefty's Food Club Bets

Welcome to Lefty's Food Club Guide! I've been playing Food Club for four years and it's my favorite game on Neopets. For players just starting out and want to make their own bets, I recommend checking out Bon's Guide to Really Lazy Food Club. It is how I started. You can make a nice amount of neopoints from it, and the method is low risk. Also I recommend reading Revenge's Guide and Sir Hatter's Guide for more information about the game and suggested betting strategies.

My Betting Style

Strictly speaking, I don't follow a system; however, I do have guidelines which I follow.

1. As a general rule, I like to take some risk because it is: (a) more fun and interesting to do so in my opinion; and (b) more profitable over time. However, I don't get too crazy, and most of the time I incorporate safeties in my betting.

2. My favorite type of card is when there is at least one arena with a clearly favored pirate (meaning there is a 2:1 pirate and the other pirates are 5:1 or greater). It's better still when at least two of the pirates are long shots (at 10:1 to 13:1). The more arenas like this on a given day the better.

3. Whenever possible I try to incorporate bets on pirates that have a positive Estimated Value (EV).

4. I avoid making bets that are less then 10:1 (breaking even), unless there's a good chance of a cascade. Then they add up, which is good.

5. Most of the time I ignore Food Adjustments since I assume that they are already reflected in the odds. The exception to this is when there is a pirate with a +4 FA or higher. In that case I tend to place a little more value on the likely outcome of such pirates.
