So put a $1000 on and get $1300 back regardless of result...
We will get them next time Adam
Yeah we were talking about it a couple of pages ago
@ $26 bucks for a draw that result could have been easily negated also.
@ NZTAB they didn't have a draw as an option, they use dead heat rules and when that result occurs the punter is paid out half of a win.
Botha @ $3 bucks would have still resulted in $1.50 paid out for every dollar invested, not a bad result.
How often have you seen it occur before? It's the first time i have seen it in 10 years
