    Surely the only decent online bookies.

    Just put a few bets on Spurs. VDV first scorer 3-2 at 180-1. There is also Defoe 1st 3-2 at 540-1 available.........Who lays £540 down to win £1, crazy! :eek:

    I think you got a bit confused lol. There is money to be made from Betfair by laying horses tho, its fairly time consuming work. Might give it a go today actually.

    Betfair is a site where you can either back a bet or you can be the bookmaker and offer odds for others to bet. So someone offered odds of 540-1 on a scorecast (first scorer + correct result). It was a highly unlikely outcome so someone who makes money off Betfair probably laid £5400 down for a £100 return.

    im pretty sure if the odds are 540-1 and you place a £1 bet and it wins. you get £540. that makes a lot more sense tbh
