the official betting thread.

Oh yeah, Anthony KAminskas showed a screenshot of paddy offering Jose Maria at 200/1 for the US Masters last year. He was 2000/1 elsewhere.

Paddy is still the best for extra places with 365 though. I did most of my EW bets with him today.
 
4 th.

Bal 198.45

1 Pt EW 3.15 NewB - Talis Evolvere, Sky bet 7 places* (no BOG)

Bal 196.45

*IRL I split my stakes, half with a better price, but less places and vice versa. If he does come in 6th or 7th, I still make a small profit, and there's nothing at all wrong with that. Grind it out........
Damn, thought he was going to go on and win there for a few seconds, but faded again to take 3rd.

Noticed I never put a price on it just now, but was 19.0 with Sky when I put it up.

Bal 201.05
 
Paddy usually have better terms online than in shop. If he's giving 6 places online, it'll probably be 5 in shop, giving 5 online, 4 in shop etc. But then he also has some shop specials too. This morning I backed Git maker to finish in the top 6 in the Scottish national at 2.88. He was being laid at 2.28 this morning, now 2.5, but that's more than likely being pushed out by traders (wouldn't bother for ten quid, but to each his own). Paddy do dbl odds one winner lucky 15/31 in shop, but not online (although I'm not sure if that changes by customer. Some fellas get €25 free bets, I get €1. Which I've made about 40 quid off doing random things last 4 or 5 :LOL!: )

Could have backed Foden @ Evens for a SOT, but if Pep drops him, then paddy ain't the voiding type, so I didn't bother.

Boyles are generally the same place terms online and in shop AFAIK (haven't noticed anything out of line anyway). But don't bet on the machines, as the margins are huge. I only noticed this when I forgot to bring some cash one morning. Horse I wanted to back was 4/1 on the screen, 7/2 on the machine. Boyles do still give double the odds one winner lucky15/31 etc in shop and online. Online though you get BOG, which you don't get in shop.

I very rarely go into a Ladbrokes shop so I wouldn't know.
Nice one, thanks for that.
 
Having thought about it now, maybe Boyles do drop an extra place or two in the shop. I'll keep an eye over the next week or so. The only reason I go in there is to get the €15 in free bets (T&Cs are you have to do one shop bet to fulfill the requirements) and to see if they have any in shop specials

Same with Paddy, is just to get the in shop specials which are decent at times. And if I was to do a lucky 15 with them for the double odds one winner. I pay cash with that to be sure I get special though, as I don't get it online, so would imagine it would be the same if I used my paddy card to do it.

Ladbrokes give extra places in races too, but they're murder for reducing them, or just getting rid of them completely if the race has a non runner. And offering you 70 to 80% cash out with it. Ladbrokes and Paddy are murder for rule 4s too, while I haven't noticed Boyles doing it much, particularly on good racing days. 365 hardly ever did it either, when I had an account with them. And 365 give by far and away the most and the best racing specials. I miss them 😥

<the bastards, I MADE THE BITCH DENISE>

Anyone have a Geoff Banks account btw? How do you find him? I've heard he is quick to gub despite his protestations on twitter/X.

Sure I'll do my own research too so.
