Celebrity Big Brother 7 Betting, January 2010
We made a total of £509 during Celebrity Big Brother 7. We
hope you did okay if you had a little bet too during the series.
Friday 29th January 2010 (Day 27)
We'd considered backing Vinnie earlier in the series, but by the
time we seriously thought about it his popularity was on the wane.
So, we held-off until the last day, when we stuck £400 on
Alex Reid to win at the low odds of 4/11 because
he was top of the Polls by miles. Normally, we would have put staked
quite a lot more cash at that stage and at those odds, but given
that Alex wasn't even in the running just a week before the Finale,
we didn't want to risk a large bet. Anyway, we made nearly £150
profit when Alex was crowned the Winner later that day, beating
Runner-up Dane by
over 17% in the public vote. Result:

Wednesday 27th January 2010 (Day 25)
Fans were voting for their Winner, and on the Monday we thought
about backing Ivana Trump to be first to go at
the last Double Eviction of the series, feeling that she would probably
have the least support in a 'positive' public vote. We held-off
placing a bet, but because Ivana's odds hadn't gone down any further
by the day of the eviction, we decided to stake £300 on her
at the low odds of 1/3. The bet came good when Ivana became the
6th Evictee, leaving with just 5.74% (to win) and netting us a profit
of £100 (plus our stake back). Result:
Wednesday 20th January 2010 (Day 18)
It was another Double Eviction, but this time around we didn't feel
confident enough to guess which pair would go. However,
it seemed obvious that God-botherer Stephen Baldwin
would be first on the public's hit list, so we staked £400
on him to become the 4th Evictee at the low odds of 2/7. This won
us a profit of £114 when he was first to go on the Friday
night, having received 50% in the three-way vote. Result:
Sunday 17th January 2010 (Day 15)
We'd announced the nominees the day before, and said that Lady
Sovereign would probably get evicted with about 60%. So,
we put our money where our mouth is and backed her to go next with
a £200 stake. The odds were a really low 1/4, so bookies were
already on to the probability of her demise, but we won £50
when Sov left with nearly 70% in the public vote. Result:
Wednesday 13th January 2010 (Day 11)
The three nominees had been announced at the weekend, and by Wednesday
it seemed obvious that Katia Ivanova would definitely
go and that Heidi Fleiss would probably join her.
So, we placed a bet on that duo in the Double Eviction market with
Paddy Power, staking £200 at low'ish odds of 1/2. This won
us a profit of £100 (plus our stake back) when that pair went,
although the bet very nearly went wrong because Sov was just 1%
away from replacing Heidi. Phew! Result:
Big Brother 10 Betting, Summer 2009
We'll link to all our Big Brother 10 betting shortly, and let you
know how we made well over £1500 during the series.
yourself a FREE £25 BET To Use On Any Betting Market with
It's very quick and easy to check the odds and
place a bet online with online bookie Paddy Power, even if you've
never placed a bet before. So, if you want to check-out the latest
odds on all sorts of different markets (Reality TV, the football,
the horses etc) and get yourself a FREE £25 Bet, just click
here and sign-up, which literally takes a minute or two.
To qualify for your Free £25 credit, which is automatically
added to your account, all you have to do is debit £25 and
bet (i.e. place a bet worth at least £25). This offer
is available to new customers only and your subsequent bets can
be for lower amounts if you wish. Actually, if you only want to
stake £10, you'll still get a Free Bet, but it will only be
for £10, so Paddy Power matches what you put in (up to £25).
The Free bet can be used to bet on anything, not just Big Brother,
and in fact your first bet doesn't have to be on Big Brother
To see the latest Big Brother betting odds, head
for the 'Novelty Bets' section in the left-hand
margin and then select 'Big Brother'. Please note that certain Big
Brother markets are sometimes taken off the Paddy
Power site according to what's happening in the House. Odds
can be removed on Mondays for instance, as the nominations take
Bet 2: You
Can Get Another FREE £25 BET From Blue Square:
Paddy Power always offer a wide range of markets
for Big Brother, but you can also get yourself another £25
Free Bet by signing-up with online bookie Blue Square.
So, as well as using the Paddy Power website regularly like we
do (link above), you can also sign-up with Blue
Square by clicking here.
Unlike Paddy Power though, you MUST stake at least £25 to
qualify for your Free Bet, and they match it with a Free £25
Bet. But, Blue Square also give you another Free £25 once
you've made 10 bets. Check-out the 'Specials' section
at the top of the page for the Big Brother odds,
but remember, as with Paddy Power you can bet on any market
to qualify for your Free Bet, you are not limited to Big Brother.
