Big Brother 8 Betting, Summer 2007:

BB8 wasn't our best series in terms of profit, but that was partly because the bookies knew what was likely to happen at the evictions. Consequently the odds weren't great and we had to risk larger amounts. Still, we made nearly £800 so we can't moan! If you had a little gamble during BB8, we hope you did okay.

Overall Result: won £880, lost £100, making for a Total Net Profit during Big Brother 8 of £780.

We got a bit carried away believing the Polls, and bet £40 at 7/2 on the 'Finishing Positions' market. We predicted that the Top 3 finalists would be Samanda, Brian & Ziggy, however we were miles-out in the end as the actual result was Brian, Samanda and then Liam. Although we could have won £140 profit, we actually lost our £40 stake.  Result: £40 loss.

Thursday, 30th August 2007  (Day 93)
With just a day to go until the Finale, we detailed a couple of Tips for possible worthwhile bets, although we'd already mentioned the first one on this very page. Click here to read the article.

Tuesday, 28th August 2007  (Day 91)
Fans were now voting for a Winner and we took our own advice (see the article directly above) and placed two bets on Brian, even though the Twins were the bookies favourites at the time. However, it was the 'Betting Without The Favourite' market, so it didn't matter what happened to those two. We staked the maximum of £650 on Brian twice, at odds of 1/6 (£1 profit for every £6 staked), and the bets came right when he won the series a few days later; Bri had to come 1st or 2nd for us to win, and we just couldn't see him coming 3rd.  Result: £108 profit + £108 profit = £216 profit.

Tuesday, 21st August 2007  (Day 84)
This week it was a Double Eviction and Jonty, Kara-Louise and Tracey were 'up'. So, a little while after the nominees were announced we backed Kara & Tracey to go with a £375 stake at the odds of 1/4. This was just before the odds went to 1/6, and the bet paid-off as we made a profit of just under £94 when that pair were evicted on the Friday.  Result: £94 profit.

Tuesday, 7th August 2007  (Day 70)
On the day the nominees were announced, in the evening, we backed Amy to go next as previous Polls indicated that she was hated. The bet came right when she was evicted on the Friday night with a 58% majority against three others: Jonty, Kara and 'Samanda'. The odds were a low 1/8 as the bookies were switched-on to the likely outcome of the eviction, so we had to stake a considerable £350 to win just under £44, plus our stake back.  Result: £44 profit.

Friday, 3rd August 2007  (Day 66)
Whoever was in the Halfway House on the Thursday faced eviction this week, that being David, Kara, Shanessa and Tracey. Two people were set to be evicted and we ran two separate Polls to find-out the fans' least favourite and second-least favourite of the four. So, on the Friday when it became obvious that David and Shanessa were not popular, we placed a bet on them becoming the 7th and 8th evictees. Staking £330 at odds of 1/6, we made £55 when they were both evicted later that day.  Result: £55 profit.

Friday, 27th July 2007  (Day 59)
Just hours before Charley's inevitable eviction we decided to place a fun bet on what Charley might say to Davina, not really expecting to win the bet - check it out here. Suffice to say that due to Charley's predictability, we won £60 from just a £10 stake!  Result: £60 profit.

Monday, 23rd July 2007  (Day 55)
The day before the nominees were announced we went for a riskier 'speculative' bet. We couldn't really see any other outcome than Charley being 'up' that week, and if she was up she couldn't possibly survive. So, we staked £150 on Charley going next at the odds of 2/5 (£2 back for every £5 staked), and when the bet came right we returned a total of £210.  Result: £60 profit.

Friday, 20th July 2007  (Day 52)
We'd previously published an article speculating that Liam could be the likely winner of the series, but it seems we were a bit previous with that! For Brainbox Brian seemed to come from nowhere in the popularity stakes three weeks later, and we looked at how the younger male could be the Overall Winner of BB8 here.

Tuesday, 10th July 2007  (Day 42)
On the day the nominees were announced for the fake eviction, people were piling money on Nicky at first, although it seemed obvious to us that it would be Charley. So, when her odds went from 1/20, through 1/14, 1/10 and ended-up at 1/3 all on the same day, we took the latter odds with a £250 bet. In actual fact, it subsequently became a lot closer between the two, but Charley was fake-evicted on the Friday night and we won just over £83.  Result: £83 profit.

Friday, 6th July 2007  (Day 38)
Before the 4th Eviction had even taken place, we published this article looking at who might leave as the 5th Evictee. Because of Big Brother's plan for there to be a fake eviction on Friday the 13th, the bets placed on this market carried forward until the 5th person was properly evicted.

Tuesday, 3rd July 2007  (Day 35)
Almost as soon as the nominees had been announced, we backed Laura to go at the 4th Eviction, taking into account what the Polls had said up until that point. The odds were low, so we staked £300 on her at 1/5, which won us a profit of £60 when she was evicted on the Friday night. It's a good job we placed our bet quickly though, because within an hour the odds had slipped to 1/8, and they just got lower and lower from then on.  Result: £60 profit.

Friday, 29th June 2007  (Day 31)
We published this story about how it was looking like Liam had the game all sewn-up already. ii

Wednesday, 20th June 2007  (Day 22)
The nominees had been announced the day before and we were fairly sure that Seany would leave with the majority in the public vote. So, we bet £150 at odds of 1/2, meaning we returned £225 when he was evicted two days later.  Result: £75 profit.

Saturday, 16th June 2007  (Day 18)
A day after Billi, Jonathan, Liam and Brian arrived, we looked at which one of the newbies might last the longest. See here.

Monday, 11th June 2007  (Day 13)
He'd been in the House for a few days and we felt that fans had warmed to Gerry straight away - a fun, Nadia type character, even if Gezza is a proper man! So, we staked £35 at the odds of 7/1 on Gerry winning, meaning we would have seen a return of £280 if he'd gone all the way. Also, if Gerry had come 2nd Overall, we'd have got our money back due to Paddy Power's 'Second Coming' offer - see article from the 31st of May below. However, Gerry was evicted in Week 11 so we lost our stake of £35.  Result: £35 loss.

Wednesday, 6th June 2007  (Day 8)
The nominees for the 1st Eviction had been announced, and by the end of the day it looked like it was going to be 60/40 in favour of evicting Shabnam. So, we staked £250 at odds of 8/15 (£8 back for every £15 staked), meaning we would have returned £380 if Shabs had gone. However, the eviction was cancelled and the bet carried forward until the 1st Eviction took place the following week. It was a no-lose bet in the end, because if Shabnam hadn't been up again, or if she hadn't been evicted, our stake would have been refunded. Shabnam did get evicted with a huge majority though, so we returned £383.  Result: £133 profit.

Sunday, 3rd June 2007  (Day 5)
We used our FREE £25 bet from Paddy Power to back Chanelle next, as she was coming across better than we thought she would at the very beginning. So, we staked £25 (Free of charge) at the odds of 12/1, and would have returned £325 if she'd Won Big Brother 8. We stood to lose absolutely nothing, and if Chanelle had come 2nd Overall we would even have got our £25 stake back! In the end she quit on Day 62 so we lost the bet.  Result: Neither a profit nor a loss.

Saturday, 2nd June 2007  (Day 4)
We had a look at the odds on the fun 'How many girls will Ziggy snog?' market here.

Friday, 1st June 2007  (Day 3)
For our first bet of the series, even though Laura was the favourite and Carole was just behind her, we decided to back Tracey to Win because she was so down to earth and didn't seem to have a gameplan. Also, her odds went from 10/1 to 16/1, so we jumped-in and staked £25 on the raver, meaning we'd have seen a profit of £400 if the bet had come right. Also, if Tracey had come 2nd Overall, we'd have got our money back due to Paddy Power's 'Second Coming' offer - see article below. In the end though, we lost £25 when Trace' was evicted with Kara-Louise in the penultimate week of the game.  Result: £25 loss.

Here's an article we published in our Latest News section about how you can place a bet in the first few weeks of BB8 with Paddy Power, and get your money back if you lose!


Get a FREE £25 BET To Use On Any Betting Market with Paddy Power:

It's very quick and easy to place a bet online with online bookie Paddy Power, even if you've never placed a bet before. So, if you want to check-out the latest odds on all sorts of different markets (Reality TV, the football, the horses etc) and get yourself a FREE £25 Bet, just click here and sign-up, which literally takes a minute or two.

To qualify for your Free £25 credit, which is automatically added to your account, all you have to do is debit £25 and bet (i.e. place a bet worth at least £25). This offer is available to new customers only and your subsequent bets can be for lower amounts if you wish. Actually, if you only want to stake £10, you'll still get a Free Bet, but it will only be for £10, so Paddy Power matches what you put in (up to £25). The Free bet can be used to bet on anything, not just Big Brother, and in fact your first bet doesn't have to be on Big Brother either.

To see the latest Big Brother betting odds, head for the 'BB' section in the left-hand margin. Please note that certain Big Brother markets are sometimes taken off the Paddy Power site according to what's happening in the House. Odds can be removed on Mondays for instance, as the nominations take place then.

NOTE: You Can Also Get A FREE £25 BET From Blue Square:

Paddy Power always offer a wide range of markets for Big Brother, but you can also get yourself another £25 Bet by signing-up with online bookie Blue Square.

So, aswell as using the Paddy Power website regularly as we do (link above), you can also sign-up with Blue Square by clicking here. Unlike Paddy Power though, you MUST stake at least £25 to qualify for your Free Bet. Check-out the 'Specials' section for the Big Brother odds, but as with Paddy Power, you can bet on any market to qualify for your Free Bet.
