Do they offer normal bets or just that special system of theirs?

Had the same word about Power today as ground did not suit in the Quipco 2000!

Was going to post but after the last time out i gave it a miss

I backed it though and it won a shade cosily in the 3.15 Irish 2000 Guineas! @5's

Ashley young 1st goalscorer @ 9/1 and anytime @ 5/2 look very tempting
I think he is playing up front with Carroll

Is Scotland at 5/1 against the Septics THAT bad? Was thinking of a sneaky £10??

Anyone betting on Frotch tonight - he's the underdog.

As I said on the previous page, Scotland were never going to win. Donovan FGS at 6/1and The Yanks -1 at 11/10. Printing money.

Thankfully I never put money on the Scotland win but did plump for Scotland in the corners Market, I watched the game last night and it was disgraceful on Scotland's behalf, 3 corners in the whole game and they all went to USA
I don't think they even had a shot on target

Every kind of bet you want is on there.

I use Betfair all the time and generally their prices are better than your normal High St bookies

Plus of course you can lay bets off if you get onside and want to take some money out of the bet

Just found some weird odds on betvictor
Cheltenham v Crewe, Crewe are favourites @ 6/4 and Cheltenham @ 2/1
But in the race to 7 corners Cheltenham are 6/4 and Crewe are 5/1
Must be a pricing error? Someone got the two odds mixed up maybe?
Lumped £100 on it just in case :D

Screech, I'f it's a pricing error does the bet become void or reduced down to correct odds

The bet should stand as they accepted my money at them odds, so it's pre agreed on those terms imo
It's just like if you get on a horse at 10/1 then the odds drop to 5/1 you will still get paid out at 10/1 because you both agreed to place and accept the bet at those odds, that's the beauty of online betting all bets are logged with individual numbers and basically paid out instantly without the need to argue with a person behind the counter

Just checked the site and the odds are still avaliable

Froch was 9/2 to knock Bute out. I was certain of it but my internet was down and couldn't get online to stick anything on. Absolutely gutted, had £200 earmarked for the bet :x

great fight to watch but man it made me angry
