    Need to find an online betting company that will ....

    Offer an accumulator on Arsenal not to win a trophy for the rest of the season

    To not win: League, League Cup, Fa Cup, Champions League.

    Any online betting sites that will allow you to make your own accumulators in this way?

    inb4 aren't you an Arsenal fan?

    Only small amount of money and will be happier if we win. I can't lose.

    Might be worth a trip to a bookies and ask for a special bet if they don't do one, they may either do something there and then or contact head office and get you odds. If you are only sticking somethin small on then maybe they wouldn't bother.
    Tbf the odds are going to be very low on them not winning a trophy at all anyway.

    As a general rule their lay odds will be the opposite of their win odds so

    Carling Cup 1/3 they will be 3/1 not to win
    FA Cup 5/1 they will be 1/5 not to win it.
    League 2/1 they will be 1/2 not ot win it
    Champions league 5/1 they will be 1/5 not to win it.

    A combined total of around 3/1 I would say, I have totally made those odds up off the top of my head but I hope you see where I am coming from.

    William Hill used to claim they would take any bet you can think off, I believe they took one of Lewis Hamilton's Dad betting he would win the F1 Championship, he was like 15 at the time, or so the legend goes

    mumbojumbo

    I don't think you can.Bluesq have "Arsenal Multiple Trophies - Nothing" @ … I don't think you can.Bluesq have "Arsenal Multiple Trophies - Nothing" @ 7.0Betting on another major trophy market would be seen as a related contingency and not eligible for a multiples bet.



    There is a Arsenal trophy less season at 6/1 at Blue Square.

    Not quite true. Bookmakers have to build in a "profit margin" or they would soon be out of business.

    So, if they are 1/3 to win, they will be 2/1 not to win
    5/1 to win, 1/7 not to win
    2/1 to win, 1/3 not to win
    5/1 to win, 1/7 not to win

    So the "not to win" accumulative odds will be around 4.22/1.

    Take the Blue Square 6/1!

    I did say in general and on betfair the lay odds are the same as the back odds (more or less) i.e they are 1.55 win 1.56 lay.

    If they back at 1.55, and lay at 1.56, they will be out of pocket!

    Take a trip to betfair then, the Blues are roughly 6/1(7.2) to win tomorrow and roughly 1/6(7.4) not to.

    If you're a bookmaker, "roughly" isn't good enough, You are "buying" money at one price, and "selling" it at another.

    Ok we will agree to disagree but I have posted a link where the odds are 3% different. Proves my point that the win and lay odds are 'roughly' the same IMO.

    Your on your way :-(((

    Did you take the 6/1 op?

    Hope you put a lot on it

    That was by far the biggest hurdle to overcome in that bet, I doubt they will win any of the others. To be honest I would like to see their football style rewarded with some silverware though.

    Got 8/1 in my local Ladbrokes, which I was suprised about as they're normally useless when it comes to special bets.

    Only put a £5 on though.
