Luke's Not A Bad Bet
We previously backed Kat to Win Big Brother 9, but we've
just placed a bet on Luke, someone who many fans think is
really entertaining and harmless.
Please see our Betting Zone section to see what we've done,
however you may wish to do things the other way around if
you fancy having some fun and placing a little bet on the
outcome of this series.
At today's odds, unless you're convinced that Kathreya is
going to win (then you should stake as much as you can afford
to lose on her), it wouldn't be a bad idea to place
a £25 Bet on Luke, which would give you a potential
profit of either £75 (plus your stake back) with Paddy
Power, or nearly £88 (plus your stake back) if you choose
to use Blue Square.
The difference in the potential profit detailed above is
because, at the time of writing, the latter company is offering
better odds: 7/2 versus 3/1 on Luke winning BB9.
Then, you could stake your Free £25 Bet –
which both companies give you – on Kathreya to Win BB9
at the current odds of 11/8, just to get a few quid back if
she goes all the way. Actually, at those odds you'd win almost
So, you would mainly be backing Luke in a bid to make a decent
profit, but as we've pointed-out above, you wouldn't lose
financially if either housemate won. Indeed, you would ultimately
be either £88 in profit if Luke won, or £10 in
profit if Kat won (provided you take Blue Square's better
odds). You stand to lose just £25 if neither wins.
Of course, if you choose to place the same bets with both
online bookies mentioned above this afternoon, you would pretty-much
double your potential profit. In that case, you would be risking
a total of £50 for a potential profit of either £163
(plus your stakes back) or £20, depending who won. That's
not bad given that Kat and Luke are so far ahead of everyone
else at this stage of the game; their odds will only get lower
if their popularity continues though.
Just one thing, you can always forget Kat and just back Luke
with your £25 stake and your Free £25
Bet if you like. In this instance, you would be risking just
£25 for a potential profit of £175 with Blue Square,
and £150 with Paddy Power. And there's nothing to stop
you doing this with both bookies either, for a potential profit
of £325 on an outlay of £50 (which you get back
if you win).

It's easy to sign-up and there are no catches regarding the
Free Bets; you stake at least £25 and they give you
£25 for Free. That said, with Paddy Power you can stake
lower amounts and still get a Free Bet. See our Betting
Zone section for more details.
Good Luck if you decide to go for it!
