Your Best Bet For The Finale?
We've made around £600 so far this year by betting
on the weekly evictions, but we thought we'd give you a betting
Tip-or-two for the Finale Week.
On Tuesday (two days ago) we wrote in our Betting
Zone section that the 'Betting Without The Favourite'
market was possibly worth a go, as it discounted bookies'
favourite the Twins. So, you were effectively gambling on
who would come top out-of all the other finalists.
It seemed to us that a bet on Brian would be money in the
bank, as it wouldn't matter if he came 1st or 2nd Overall,
you would still win your bet. However, the odds are rather
low, so it's not like you'll become a millionaire or anything!
At 1/6, if you staked the maximum amount of £650, you
would stand to win a profit of £108 plus your stake
back. Obviously, however, if Brian came 3rd you would lose
your whole stake.
The odds on that market have now gone from 1/6 to 1/7 to
1/10; still worth a punt if you think that Brian won't come
any lower than 2nd place. Placing the maximum stake
at the odds of 1/10 would win you £65 profit, and a
stake of £100 would win you a 'tenner.
But today, with just one day to go until the Finale, another
BB betting market has caught our eye, and that's the 'Finishing
You can currently get the odds of 7/2 on the possible outcome
of: Twins 1st, Brian 2nd, Ziggy 3rd. So, if you think that's
the likely outcome now, that moneybags Liam has possibly dropped
down to 4th place and Brian is still likely to come 2nd, then
a £75 stake would win you over £260 profit, plus
your stake back.
Even a £25 stake would win you almost £90 profit
at those odds, and not only that, but new customers who join-up
with online bookmaker Paddy
Power before the weekend get a Free £25 Bet if they
place a bet worth at least £25 (if you stake £10,
they'll give you a Free £10 Bet etc.)
Effectively, you can't lose... well, you CAN lose, but you
know what we mean. However, even if you study the Polls around
the internet and think the above sound like good bets, please
don't stake more than you can afford to lose.
We've never lost a big bet (touch wood!), but frankly if
we lost hundreds-of-pounds we'd be annoyed, but not skint.
We just don't want people to get carried away and bet their
entire pay packet or rent money just 'cos we gave them the
idea. After all, it can still be fun to stick a little £10
