Fun fact:
People from Belarus don't care that much about football, since Ice hockey is the national sport (one just needs to compare the stadium capacity of each sport), as winter sports in general.

Dinamo Minsk avg spectators per match is arround 1 150, while in ice hockey they get an avg of about 10 000.

Had no intention of betting these but ran out of ways to kill time now. Some books are behind on some FIFA games. Unsure if it’s been the same the last few weeks as only started betting again on Monday after a month off. 365 are perfect every time but some other books aren’t suspending til 10 seconds after goals have went in. It’s possible to bet on next goal once it’s happened.

There’s also some edges to be had in some of these competitions. The standard varies greatly between each one. The higher the standard, the lower the goals. Can be value in betting unders if the line is high.

I watched a PES comp today for the first time ever and realised after 2 games the line was too high. Was 3.5 for every game and every game was finishing 0-0/1-0/1-1. Worth monitoring these games for any potential errors like that.

Had a pretty decent bet on Shakhtar Soligorsk no clean sheet @ 2.10

1-0 down in 25 mins. Lovely!

Didn't post because I'm pretty hit and miss with this Belarussian league.

In what way?
He lost on purpose to Adams. Barney was 8/11 opening price, he kicked off about 6/4. Was £50k on the game with betfair, every other game had £3kish. He averaged 65 which was his lowest ever in history and his performance was a disgrace. He lost 5-0, couldn’t have been anymore obvious.

When so blatant won't there be an investigation?

Was looking at the NFL draft bets and there are some real good ones

1. CeeDee lamb to be first WR drafted at Evens is good value imo . It's between him and jeudy with lamb most likely imo

2. Henry ruggs draft position over 14.5 at Evens

3. Couple of safe ones imo Kenneth Murray to be picked in the first round at 2/9 , Herbert to be picked before Jordan love is 1/5 and Tua pick number over 3.5 is 5/18

Had the worst possible betting experience yesterday . Bet on an eSports event and the team I bet on were winning comfortably but lost their internet and had to forfeit . William hill didn't void the bet. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry :lol: :lol: :lol:

I suspect he has done so more subtly in many more of these games and that he is far from the only one.

Unlikely. Even the most blatant of match fixing generally goes completely unpunished. Off the top of my head the only punishment I've ever seen handed out for blatant fixing was North Korea u16 keeper. The only people I recall being punished in sports are people you wouldn't actually have had any clue about it happening at the time. Snooker players, cricket and tennis players throwing individual games. Weirdly the more blatant they are, the more likely they are to get away with it.

No doubt, will be a few of them at it. None haas been near as blatant as that, nor as profitable. Still not seen anywhere near £50k matched on any other game.

Not betting related but would be appreciated if people could do me a favour and sign up to this. (it's just a comp to win vip tickets for a band + some signed stuff) https://arep.co/cYwq7

Takes 30 seconds, can put fake info in but the email has to be real to confirm it. I need as many signups as possible to have a chance of winning :D Called in favours from a couple of gambling forums already and in the top 1%:)

Depends on what game. You’ll find most on twitch or YouTube. All the esports I watch are on twitch anyway.
I’m going to work tonight so I figured I’d just find and bet in some random shit. As somebody said earlier the international horses are too hard to read so esports looks like a nice way to spend the evening

The only esports I have bet on are CS:GO and Rocket League. The CS:GO games today aren’t great odds as they all look like mismatches. I’ve gone for two of the underdogs as I remember Furia and MIBR have struggled recently. All games are at the same time but the ESL twitch channel normally has B and C streams covering all games but can’t guarantee.

Some of our betting companies got government support during the corona virus pandemic.

To me, way more shameful than what Spurs or Liverpool did in England. They at least changed their minds, these cnuts wont.

Do you know which ones?
Some of these companies are fcked, but at the same time, the government have made it quite easy for them to do this.

Some local ones here in Croatia, I'm not from Britain. Lousy odds, 5% of our money goes to "manipulative expanses" whenever we bet, plus they successfully lobbied to block all the best foreign companies. So, no bet365, betfair, pinnacle,...here. Well, for most of the people. There are alternative links and VPN still for some of us who dig deeper.

Anyway, they also had 50+ million of Euro in profit alone in 2019, but still grabbed this opportunity.

Does anybody know what happens if the season is finished based upon points per game? I have an open bet that Utd will finish in the top 4.

I'm not sure that's true. It will vary a fair bit, some have terms such as official result from the governing body and similar. What bookie is it with? Have a look at their football rules and you'll get some idea but in reality it's probably just wait and see.
In the terms & conditions it says when an event is cancelled, initial bet value is refunded. I'm pretty sure they will consider this as a canceled event, they can pretty much twist the rules a bit, pretty much like some casinos do. Although I have to agree it will be a massive PR fail, so that might weight on their decisions, but either way, I don't think they will pay full prize ( I had a combo of Bayern + PSG + Celtic + Juve to win the league, so I'm pretty much underwhelmed).

Hello guyz, Need your advice.

I am having an issue with 1xbet. I have had a bet 2 weeks ago, on fouls in a Belarus Premier League game and it was won by a good margin. I was watching live and could see 1xbet had missed calculating many of the fouls during inplay. After the game, they had settled my bet of over 35 fouls as loss where the game had 41 fouls in total. 1xbet has this list of official sources for each football league and their source of Belarus league also confirms that this game had 41 fouls, four other sources like livescores, flashscore, sofascore,etc also show that the game had 41 fouls.

I have contacted them through email and they simply say that bet was calculated correctly. Could you advice me if I could complain about this to anyone ??

Any other site you’d get paid easily but 1xbet, you probably have a small chance of getting paid. They operate under a Curacao licence and make up their own rules. Depending on which country you are in, it’ll depend on what you can do next. Where are you from?

I’d email again asking for their official source that says there was under 35 fouls. Ask clearly for the exact source and link they are using to settle your bet as a loser. ‘Hi, regarding bet XXX can you please send the direct link to the official source that you have used to settle this as a loser. All reliable 3rd party sources state that there were 41 fouls (then provide the links for FlashScore etc). Please provide a clear link to your source which claims contrary to this.’

1xbet is a complete scam so wouldn’t get your hopes up for getting paid. Also prepare for a huge back and forth via email. Last time I used 1xbet a few years ago it took me over 50 emails to get paid.

Thank you very much for your reply. I am from India, and did exactly like you said this morning, emailed them asking for their source. And as they got no source supporting their calculation, I am sure they would again comeback with a simple line saying the bet was calculated correctly. If I understand correctly, other sites like bet365, betway have a separate complaints department that deals with this sort of stuff and I cant find such on 1xtbet site.

The only reason I am using 1xbet is its easy to deposit here in india compared to other sites.

So annoying when they waste your time like that!
