    David Lemieux is evens to beat Billy Joe Saunders, that's an extremely generous price for a number of reasons. Firstly the fight is in his home town of Quebec, a massive advantage in my eyes. Secondly he hits like a truck, harder than anyone BJS has faced by some distance. Thirdly, the latter's performances of late haven't exactly been stellar and his split with Jimmy Tibbs wouldn't have helped matters. Think even money is very good value.

    Couldn't have been more wrong. Absolute masterclass from Saunders. Fittest I've ever seen him and switched on from the opening bell. Lemieux may hit but he never came close to troubling Saunders. Dominated from start to finish, didn't look like losing a round never mind the fight. On that form he'd be a proposition for anyone, GGG and Alvarez included.

    I don't usually bet but got a tip of an unusually good price so have stuck a bit on.

    Huesca, top of the Spanish Segunda Liga, are playing the 17th placed team, at home.

    Huesca haven't won the league yet.

    They're 9/2 for the win.

    It's probably a stitch up. Gimanstic need points to stay up, from past experience in these lower leagues i found the remaining few games untouchable because some teams roll over. Seville B are 4-1 at home to beat a team that can't win and don't have much to play for. Seville have been relegated a while back, but still win at home. It's a mine field, good luck!

    Yeah, I get the impression there's something dodgy about it...too good a price, but worth a punt.

    The italian leagues were rife for it. I made a nice few quid backing teams to draw until a load of owners, players got nicked :D

    After losing there last four aways without scoring :hmm: Huesca had only lost once at home before yesterday! I had a look at the in play stats, after 60 minutes Huesca hadn't had a shot on goal :D

    Instead of backing Huesca, i did Seville to win and both teams to score at 8/1. They were 4-1 just to win but as they always concede, i opted for score and win.

    Defo! It's certainly not a freak result as the match stats will confirm. There was a couple of suspect games in that league yesterday, Two own goals, a pen and a red card in one game alone. I think betting on the amount cards, sendings off, corners, throw ins etc sholud be banned. It's rife in lower league football, i read the betting syndicates involved find it easier to bribe players, owners and officials lower down the money tree.

    Makes sense. It's hard to bribe someone like Pogba on half a million a week or whatever, whereas if you 'only' earn 3 or 4 times the wage of a normal job, then relatively small amounts could be tempting.

    The Spanish FA set a minimum wage in La Liga 2 recently of €64k. That's not very high at all in footballing terms. A well paid office job could easily pay more.

    Not sure how many players were actually on less than that but you'd expect there must be some to implement a rule to mandate that minimum?

    Scottish Premier League is an interesting one. The average wage is £3k/w. So £12k a month. A huge sum for a normal person, sure, but for a footballer playing in the top division in a country it seems a small amount. And this is the average, so there will be players on much less. Definitely within reach of bribes, there...

    I've usually found that if a price seems too good to be true there's probably a very good reason why. And the bookies are invariably aware of that :)

    No surprise, i don't have any sympathy for the bookies, I had a coupon on thursday with those odds on. They knew in advance something was fishy but didn't void it on the coupon. They only suspended betting when they got walloped.

    Yep, defo. The price was too good, so they had to have known.

    Cunts, all of 'em.

    Any chance I get my money back ?

    They would have made plenty from it, people jump on those prices in a two horse race. They only tell us what they lose and are happy to take peoples cash. fuck em!
    Yep!
    Behave yourself :D

    It would be interesting to hear what they say if you tried.
