    Betting online

    Ok - I don't really know what I'm doing but I've deposited £12 on Betfair and have placed bets on the Grand National to that value. But it keeps telling me my bets are unmatched - anyone tell me what this means? Have I got bets placed or will they be cancelled at the beginning of the race? Am guessing that someone on this site will know something about it.

    Looks like your trying to 'lay' the bets rather than 'place' a bet.

    Did you click on the blue box to place the bet ?

    I clicked on the blue box that said "SP" - is that right?

    Do you want to do a each way bet? If so tick EW

    Yes thats the right box. I don't know why it's not matched yet.

    You bet to WIN and bet to LOSE.

    That is the each way bet.

    You still get 1/4 the odds on a win.
