It probably sounds more confusing than it is.

Boylesports have Webber at 10/1, there e/w terms are 3 places 1/5 odds

So using 5 as an example you have 5 on him to win and 5 on at 1/5 of the win odds, so 2/1, for him to come in the top 3.

So a 2nd or 3rd place returns, 15, profit of 5, a win means a return of 70, profit of 60.

The e/w return would hardly be worth it if you thought he only had a chance to place but if you think, as Leo said, that it's unlikely he finishes outside the podium positions then it's decent as it's essentially a bet to nothing with at best the chance of a nice win and at worst your money back with a bit of change...

You could go with United, Spurs and Chelsea as a treble, all three are odds on, but not to the extent that I'd price them.

Could add Newcastle as a bit of a kicker at 5/1, ridiculous value.

That's my thinking.

If his car doesn't crash or get a fault I can't see him finishing outside top 4 with a decent chance at the win. Powers is quarter the odds for top 3.

I usually just go for Both Teams to Score bets these days. Haven't won an accumulator over a quad on choosing games in a few years.

Chelsea/City double 2/1 i'll have some of that.

Who do we like in prizefighter lads ? I'm on mansouri, i think that slick speedy style is suited to the format like how Flannigan was in the last one

Webber qualified second which is good.

One worry is that pastor Maldonado is beside him in third, and he is a bit gung ho and tends to crash into people.

I reckon so but I'd want more than what the bookies are offering.

Leave it and have a small punt on Cardiff at Bolton.
