BBO: We've Backed Grace To Win
Just one week in, and we've placed our first bet of the series.
Given that we usually manage to make a 'grand-or-so each
year, we thought you might be interested in hearing about
our latest gamble. However, it doesn't mean that we're necessarily
supporting the person we've backed, as we never 'back' any
one contestant in that way.
BBLB's Dermot O'Leary has tipped Grace to Win BB7 and recently
suggested that she could fly under the radar for a while and
snatch the win right at the end of the series. And given that
Grace seems quite nice and has the potential to get a romance
going with one of the lads, we wonder whether Dermot could
So, as her odds to become the Outright Winner of Big Brother
7 are fantastic at the moment, we've staked £25 on her
to Win at odds of 22/1.
If she goes on to win the series we'll get a whopping return
of £575, which is 22 x the amount staked, plus our original
stake back. Of course, should she fail to come 1st, we'll
have lost £25; not exactly the end of the world.
A way around this would be an 'each-way' bet, where you get
paid a quarter of the odds even if the person comes second
or third. That would have cost us £50 in this instance
(£25 each way, but you could just do £15 each
way etc.) and would still return almost £163 if she
came second or third.
However, with a £25 each way bet at 22/1, if Grace
came 1st you'd get a return of well over £700, as you
kind-of get paid twice... which is nice!
Should you fancy a flutter yourself and you haven't ever
joined-up with online bookie BlueSquare before, as long as
you stake at least £25 on your first bet, they will
match it with a FREE £25 Bet.
So effectively, you can't lose, and any subsequent bets you
make – whether on Big Brother, the World Cup or the
gee-gees – can be for lower amounts if you wish.
It's quick and easy to sign-up for an account and even easier
to place a bet; just click
here and then click the 'Register' link that appears in
the yellow box at the centre of their Home page.
Just one thing, the odds for the various Big Brother markets
(Outright Eviction/ Next Evictee etc.) can be found in the
TV Specials section of the BlueSquare
site. However, they are often taken-off late at night. So
if you can't find the latest odds, just pop back another time.
You may also wish to get yourself a FREE £10 Bet by
registering in the same way with Coral. See the banner adverts
on the BBO website for details.
