    Dear all

    Be interested in peoples comments on this.

    Between 11.30pm last night (Sat) and 12.30 am Sun staked just over £45 on Man City to beat Everton at 10/11 in a number of singles at a certain bookmaker.

    Everytime tried to up stake above £25 cumulative total either before or after midnight bet was refused. Logged on again this morning to see price had changed to 5/6. Can’t believe that my stakes were big enough to change this price. Any thoughts/ comments from other forumites?

    Was 10/11 top price?, they might have took a fair bit prior to your bets and you caught the end of their limit or something.

    Forum member Zamorston commented on another thread in the lays and plays that some firms are quoting prices but not laying alot.


    Are you winning off them? they might restrict you if your taking their money, I never have that problem….. :lol:

    or it might be something completely different, email them and ask them what the crack is.

    Hi Nathan

    Thanks for your response. Was hoping you would reply to this.

    Yes 10/11 was best price. Intersting comment re B365 and BV as was neither of these bookies was the "culprit"

    Reason I posed question was that I also like the double chance bet, often betting on draw or outsider on this. Just wandered if an indivdual or a collectiono of people could manipulate prices with diffent bookies over time through sustained betting on singles, fav with one bookie and double chance with another to create a book that was under 100%.

    Hope you and other forumites see where I’m coming from. A recent example of this, whether by accident or design is Leicester v middlesborough on Wednesday. Leicester opened at 7/5 with Bwin on 17.01.12 and now you can bet Borough and draw on double chance market at 3/4 with the same bookie!! 5 pnts at start wins 12 pnts. 7 pnts nown wins 12.25pnts i.e. under 100% book!!!! If you consider best odds principle by shopping around then can shear force of money create markets that "adjust" and force an under 100% book over time?!?!

    Comments welcomed by you and all

    Not sure really. I think your more likely 9/10 times if anything going to force a price to shorten, cant imagine too much drifting to under 100%, however they are all competing for custom so their could be more opportunities to be had. Well done on spotting what you have and best of luck with it.
