Ok. Paddy power are offering even money on both teams to score tonight and bet fair are offering 6/5 on both teams not to score.

You can only win if you place the right amount surely!?

So lets see...

You bet £50 on each.

PP wins = £100
Betfair wins = £110

You are guarnteed not to lose but possibly gain a tenner, but your outlay would need to be £100.

Not really worth it unless you are going to bet thousands.

You can put the odds in a calculator such as 3bet.co.uk/cal…or/. Beware backing and laying on pp and betfair though, they are thee same parent company and it's likely they share information, not worth risking your account.

What if its 1-0

You lose both bets

Just seen it myself, £22 max bet for me so.
£22 @ 2.00 (decimal)
lay @ 1.77 currently on smarkets (Avoid betfair as i mentioned above)
2% commission = £2.40 whatever the outcome.

I am not a betting man but just went on betfair & found the bet & now understand it.

The bet is against "both teams to score" being a factual statement.

Its not a positive bet on "both teams not to score" ie betting on 0-0

"Both teams to Score?" it is not "both teams not to score(ie 0.0)"

It's usually a case of both teams to score Yes/No.

But he said ''bet fair are offering 6/5 on both teams not to score.'' I can see the confusion but it was obvious what he meant.

I'll take a guess & say 1-0 means both teams never scored lol.

Both teams are highly likely to score but a tenners a tenner so gonna have a little punt.

Liverpool ht/ft at 12/5 looks the best bet.

Levis24 rule should apply to this...

LEGEND!

Dont want to lay a paddy power bet with betfair since they merged a while a go, will easily spot your betting habbits.

If you want to lay a paddypower bet use something like smarkets

No worries, just realised i totally mis(Skip..) read the OP didn't realise that it was a back back situation (But same still stands on them been the same company)

If you do get into matched betting would highly recommend smarkets, only take 2% commission rather than 5% with betfair

Yeah was doing matched betting for a while but I did get bored in the end. Smarkets is the way to go though for sure.
