I was going to come on and ask for someone to lay me a bet on Tottenham -1.5 but kindly someone matched me before I could even post (must've been an arb somewhere).

Any opinions on this? Spurs to win easily for me, especially against that Bolton defence.

If there had been a downpour of snow causing the game to be abandoned with 5 minutes lefts all bets would've been voided just the same. Get over it.

The tennis situation is totally different. Bookmakers either pay out after one point completed, one set, two sets or match complete. Betfair chose to settle bets when one set is complete. You know the rules before you bet, so if you don't like it then bet elsewhere or don't bet. Just like everyone knows the rules regarding abandonments in football.

I used to arb a lot too YOMOMMA, when bookmakers didn't shut you down after one bet. I made a lot of money from it, and you have to know the rules and how to use them in your favour. One example if you're arbing across betting sites with different rules:  At the end of the tennis season, a lot of the top players retire injured after playing many matches over the course of the year. Back them to win at short odds at a match complete bookmaker, lay them (arb) on Betfair. If they retire after the first set then bingo. If their opponent retires, it's only a small loss relative to what you could've won if the other player retired. I used to stick to only laying 1.4 and shorter on Betfair with mixed rules like that.
