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 be right?

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.

If you'd like to follow our betting progress as the series gets under way, make sure you regularly check-out our dedicated Betting Zone section, which can be visited by clicking the link on most pages of the site.

If you decide to have a little gamble yourself this series, Good Luck!
