Its a game of football in may have more or less interest then other matches but ultimately its the same betting product. So why do BF ( who use to be market innovators ) have different markets up for different games ie in this instance remove Total Brighton Goals and yet waste there time with seperate markets for Over or Under goals 0.5 / 1.5 / 2.5 / 3.5 / 4.5 / 5.5 / 6.5 ( 7 of the first 9 markets quoted ) when you can do exacly the same bet on the One Market Total Goals. Its the only game in England tonight I expect people want to punt on it Same Markets every game in the same order. The more you please the Customer the more Rake you take from us!

In-play it makes more sense to bet on the individual markets as they dont need to wait until FT for settlement but thats a technical excuse that could be applied to other markets like correct score.

Your point stands though, far too many markets.

Botfair use their bots on over/under goals when it goes in play.

The whole botfair site is a bit rubbish. They have added some markets to football matches recently; Anytime correct score, First carded player, Team A first goalscorer, Team B goalscorer. They seed these markets themselves to big percentages so they are really bad value and so I guess that's why they have been added. Can't see these new markets ever being very popular though.

The only reason to have different markets for what is essentially the same bet is because of commission. If you bet on more than one market, and win, then you have to pay commission on each winning market. There is no reason why the number of goals markets couldn't be all on the same book similar to correct score.

Don't care what markets, they have on the game, Brighton are 1-0 up and that all that matters to me. Come on Brighton get another and sew this game up.

Knockaert made the difference when he came on. Very good player at that level.

Forest about Villa's level these days

Great win for Brighton, without the injury time goal, they would have struggled to go past either Burnley or Middlesborough, with their inferior goal difference as well. In two weeks times its Burnley v Middlesborough, so 5 more wins for my team and were up and straight back down without changes.

But with about £50,000,000+ in parachute payments, plus 1 season's TV money, cricketnut.

teams promoted (Watford,B'mouth esp) seem to be fairing comfortably ,Norwich hanging in  there.

Brighton no worse than Nowrich .

Mind you ,no Villa ,Sunderland and Newcastle next season to prop you up LaughShocked
