    No, I haven't. Well, hadn't. Only really Dybala isn't it? I saw the below and was tempted but is there anyone else major missing? Juve look pretty unstoppable recently.

    It's 100/1 Juve, City, Liverpool and RM - you can only bet a quid though as usual with these.

    I'm not sure, but someone in the CL thread said this: "Lichsteiner and Barzagli (in addition to Howedes, Matuidi, Dybala and Cuadrado) not available for tomorrow."

    I only got the £10 too, went for over 0.5 goals in second half for £3 extra. Look for something a bit fancier with the inplay bet.

    I presume b365 are limiting the max stake for this bet offer on accounts which have been exploiting the FGS market.

    Nope, I've never used it before today, and I'm on £25...

    Strange. Have you been winning a lot of money from this offer in the past?

    From my experience I've only ever been limited due winning streaks and exploiting fixed markets such as WWE.

    also, it's their own dickhead fault for not keeping up to speed with squads, etc...

    The squads were announced last night, and players out of the squad are still on FGS...it's not our fault they're too slow on updating their website...

    :lol:

    Have I feck...most of the time, I end up losing due to rank stupidity...

    Last one, I had over 10.5 corners, and that won in the 47th minute, for like £40, so I lumped on over 15 corners and turned it into £70 by the 65th minute...on a roll, I decided to go all in on over 18.5 corners to win a paltry £20 extra...there were 18 corners...

    They should be more on the ball with updating the Goalscorer list but it's still exploiting the offer and I can understand people getting limited due to this, although it doesn't seem like that's the reason behind a lot of people's stake limitation.

    :lol: That's how they get you. If you win tonight, take the money and run my friend.

    Tonight will be the first time I've exploited the FGS market with this offer. Usually I can afford to lose £50 but when you're saving for a mortgage deposit, you don't have such luxury.

    In play bet will be a draw tonight I think. Juve missing too many important players. Possibly under 2.5 as well.

    I've always got the £50 from 365, rarely even bet with them these days but was quite active on their site up until a couple of years ago. I always go for a punt with the free bet offers they give me though, no 1/10 shots or anything but it would make sense if they're favouring customers who actually try and use the offer for gambling rather than those trying to arb a free £20.

    My in play bet is always a longer odds punt, rather than something shit...

    But my usual qualifying bet is over 0.5 goals or under 6.5 goals (although Liverpool vs Arse did me for that a few years ago when it was 4-3 or summat...lost big on that one as it was £50 of my own money that time...and I fecked the free bet up as well...

    I like City -1.5 @1.95. Think Spurs are a good price at 3.8, I may chuck a small bet on that.

    Well that was easy. Went for over 1.5 goals in the pre-match bet. Thinking of going 4-0 or 4-1 correct score. Either way, just hope Spurs get hammered!

    Ah, I did something similar last year. Think it was an under 7.5 or something ridiculous like that in an Arsenal game. Sure enough, the goals kept flying in and ended up with 8! :lol:

    Was just about to lump on 4-1 when Spurs scored. Not so sure now as they seem to be getting back into the game. Thinking of a 3-2 or 4-2 now as there's going to be more goals and I see Spurs getting another?

    I had money on Juve -2. Didn't have too much hopes for it, but after ten minutes I thought I had a real chance! :lol:

    I should stop betting against Spurs. Did that against them with United, Liverpool, Arsenal, and Juve. I'm their anti-jinx. :lol:

    I also had £10 acca with Chelsea -2, City -2, Juve, Liverpool, Madrid. :mad:

    Went for the 3-2 correct score in the end. And my SkyBet Super Boost bet of Juve, City and Cardiff went to pot too but at least that's been refunded.

    Feck Juve!

    Think they probably use some sort of algo based on what you bet aside from when they use the offer, what type of bets, how you use the offer etc. Or at least that's what I'd do but maybe they are a bit thick. Mind you, they do alright profit-wise so maybe I should shut up.

    I ended up breaking even by having money on Spurs to score the 4th goal...

    I'm useless at betting...I just umm and ahh too much over stuff instead of taking the plunge...

    Pre game I was going to have BTTS first half - Yes, but usually leave it 5 or so minutes to get better odds. Happened.

    Then I looked at Higuain to score the 2nd goal. Had my £25 free bet loaded, then shit out. Happened.

    Then I looked at HArry Kane to score the 3rd. Again, had it in my bet slip, was umming and ahhing over it, and then while I was thinking it through for the 5th time, happened.

    Finally put my inplay bet on 4-1 Juve. Didn't happen.

    Oh, and my original stake of £25 which was refunded after FGS didn't play, I put on over 3.5 first half goals, and fecking Higuain missed the cnuting thing.

    Well, first time I get something from these free bets..

    Put £5 for a correct score, 1-1. Obviously after 9min, gone.

    However, after 20min I saw Spurs were pushing & pushing and I put my £5 free bet for a draw FT at 8.5 (decimals). So can't complain this time.

    Any idea if there's gonna be a freebet for tonight's game (Madrid vs PSG?)

    They usually email a few days in advance so I'm going to say no free bet for tonight's games.

    Stinker last night. £50 on Juventus to win prematch, went to put my £50 free inplay bet on both teams to score in 1st half at 5/1. Juve scored just as I was pressing the button. Chucked it on Bernardeschi to score anytime instead.

    First time I bet this year last night. £50 in play free bet on Juve to win BTTS pretty much summed up this season for me.

    Trying the bet builder on B365 for Liverpool match today. Salah to score any time, Liverpool to win, over 1.5 match goals and Moreno to be booked. 17.00.
