The Dangers of Punting.

Result:  Walsall 1-2 Leyton Orient .  Running total:  -2.088

They are many and varied.

The first problem you have is finding a winner.  That's what this site is all about.  OK, OK, I know things aren't going very well at the moment, but they will and if you start following thetipper's selections from now until the end of the season you'll be showing a bigger than advertised profit, which is always a good place to be.

The second problem you have is finding a reliable firm to place your bets with. There are those who simply disappear.  There are those who never existed in the first place and there are those who sort of disappear in a rather vague and unsettling way.

The latest of those to fall into the last category are Bodog.  Here's what the PR department at the company would have you believe, just over a week ago:

I received an e-mail today with this in it:
  • is no longer accepting any new player registrations
  • will remain in operation as a standalone Casino brand and will accept new signups in the future when its new Asian-optimised website is launched
  • As such, the Sportsbook, Racebook and Poker Room features will be removed this Friday, October 5th
  • Players will have the option to request a cash out or continue playing on the casino product as usual
They are slightly conflicting statements, which worries me.  My advice would be to withdraw any cash you have on the site, unless you are an online casino player, then you can spin it up...  Let's face it, if you can't bet on sport why leave your money sitting in an account that you are not going to use?

Th tipper's selection this weekend is 0.3pt on Morecambe to beat Burton Albion8-5  with Boylesports.  When it wins the bet will be settled at the more generally available price of 7-5. You can get 6-4 from from Stan James & Click_here_to_bet_at BetVictor.   Get one of the better prices if you can.  The list of bookies currently offering 7-5 is as follows:
, UK Sportsbook, Paddy Power, Coral £30 Free Bet & William Hill Sports

Whilst Boylesports are offering the best price about a footytipper selection it behoves me to mention that if you are going to back that selection with them you really ought to have a go at the Boylesports P& C Onion Bag Challenge, which is on the Competitions page of the website.  You could easily win a free £10 bet with them since this competition has been running for three weeks with no winners so far!

Good Fortune Viewers!
