Celebrity Big Brother 3 Betting:
In the bets detailed below we made over £300 during the
18-day run of the series. If you opted to have a flutter during
this short-format series, we hope that you also came up trumps.
Overall Result: won £352, lost £20, making for a Total
Net Profit during Celebrity Big Brother 3 of £332. Not bad
given that it was an unpredictable series in many respects, but
the bookies had it sussed in others, resulting in reasonably low
Sunday 23rd January 2005 (Day 18)
On the last day of the show our Poll indicated that Bez was just
about in the lead, although we didn't really believe it. However,
the bookies were offering amazing odds on him winning at that late
stage of the game. So, because we couldn't really afford to back
Kenzie (due to very low odds), we decided to have a punt on Bez
winning the show. Staking £40 at odds of 6/1, we returned
£280 when he pipped Kenzie to victory at the Final later that
day. Result: £240 profit
Saturday 15th January 2005 (Day 10)
On the day after Jackie's eviction we decided to make a speculative
bet on who might be up for eviction and subsequently get thrown-out
on the Monday. Generally, this is the time when you get the best
odds i.e. before the nominations have even taken place. With decent
odds of 16/1, we staked £10 on Bez for a potential return
of £170. However, we also staked £100 on 'favourite
to go' John at the low odds of 4/5, for a potential return of £180
(£4 profit for every £5 staked, plus stake back). If
neither had gone we would have lost £110, but overall we couldn't
lose once the nominees had been announced. As it was, we lost our
stake on Bez but gained £80 profit from John. We were really
hoping that Bez would go, but we still made a few quid, so it's
all good! Result: £80 profit + £10
loss = net profit of £70.
Thursday 13th January 2005 (Day 8)
After the nominees had been announced just a day before the 1st
Eviction, we decided to back Jackie to be the one to go, staking
£250 on her at odds of 1/6. They were quite low odds and to
some, too risky for too little reward, but we gauged public opinion
well and returned £292 when Jackie was kicked-out with a 67%
majority. Result: £42 profit
Friday 7th January 2005 (Day 2)
We really 'took to' Germaine straight away and at the time, believed
she could go all the way and win the series. So, we staked £20
on her to win at odds of 7/1, for a potential return of £160.
However, mirroring John Lydon's walk-out during 'I'm A Celebrity'
when he probably would have won the series, Germaine decided to
quit on Day 6, meaning that we lost our stake. Result:
