8/1 for Pedro 1st goalscorer is a great bet in my mind

I've had Draw/Barca at 4's for a bit of interest.

Had a tenner on Barca to win 4-0 with Paddy Power because of they're money back special. They reckon they lost 3million quid. Nice to see they have a sense of humour [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Top night last night. Bumper day on super league and lower league today. Rangi Chase try 6/4. Ideal match for the Castleford catalyst against a leaky harlequins. Would expect 5 or 6 cas tries and rangi should'nt be more than evens today.

I'm expecting goals in Huddersfield/P'boro game but 0-0 is 17/1. Fairly hefty and might present a lay opportunity.

I see the draw is 11/4.

Both teams score plenty but Town have by far a better defence. I think a lot of people are laying this with a view to backing it once someone scores.

If the 0-0 is 17/1, what would it be at half time? Lots of these playoff games tend to be tight because both teams are scared of losing.

That's my line of thought on the 0-0 BB.

Noonan laying off a bet at a lower price guarantees a profit on all outcomes.

Sorry I'm being thick, but can you give me an example of how to do this?

By laying you're effectively betting against a particular outcome, as opposed to backing it.

If you've got a football match, say Hudds vs Peterborough....

Huddersfield 8/5
Peterborough 9/5
Draw 11/4

If you put 1000 on Huddersfield, you're profit/loss will read....

Hudders +1800
Peterbro -1000
Draw -1000

If Hudds score first, the inplay odds might look something like....

Hudders 1/2
Peterbro 7/1
Draw 4/1

When laying the odds are essentially reversed, you're getting 2/1 on Hudds not winning.

So to get your 1000 back it'll cost you 500, so you'd look like....

Hudds +1300
Peterbro 0
Draw 0

What you can do is lay more, so you could guarantee a profit in the region of 800-900..... a win is still a win.

Where I find this helps is if I back a team to win and they start badly without conceding I can get my stake back pretty much in full, without panicking about whether they'll balls it up or not.

The best way to figure it out is to use Betfair and play around with small stakes, a couple of quid at a time.

Nice on BB, I kind of understood but didn't realise it was to do with in play betting,

From your experience to make it pay you need to put fairly hefty sums on?

And do you use this method to make a fair profit over time?
