Too many markets and bookies can slip up now and again. Some may remember 4 years ago I put up a 100/1 winner and two years ago a few posters were on the 33/1 winner I put up and was gambled down to 4/1 at kick off. Was up before HT. Last year I was ill and couldn't go through all the bookies markets, so perhaps we missed something, we'll never know.

Can't promise I'll find anything but I'll try my best and post if I do once I get my own money on. It's not about finding a strong possibility as there are many at skimpy odds, but finding something that has a fair chance of happening but is wrongly priced.

Cheers mighty. Think i remember one of the bets was for a sack to happen?
Plenty of player prop markets to exploit as well.

Cheers Roger. One has to go through each individual bookie thoroughly and with a little luck, one can find something they have erred on by trying to be clever. It`s a laborious task, but can pay dividends hopefully. No point using odds checker or similar, as they normally have markets that all bookies are putting up. Found nothing yet. 15 firms still to check Crazy

I prefer to go for the sure thing type of bet. Less odds but more likely to happen.
Shane Verren to rush for Over 11.5 yards was one I liked in the Seahawks SB.

Two years ago PP got a hammering with our winning Special - Interception Returned For A TD @ 33/1 gambled down by the forum to 4/1 at Kick-Off. Odds this year? 7/1. I think they learned from their mistake LaughLaughWink Still looking but found nothing yet.

Nothing wrong with that Roger, but if it goes tits up it can prove a nightmare. Just looking for a slip up at decent odds for the smaller punter, who normally doesn`t bet NFL, to have an interest in the game.

You are right in what you say dlf. We only got 30 quid on @ 33/1 by synchronising watches like something out of a James Bond movie LaughLaugh then price started to fall like a lead balloon Sad
Report themightymac February 3, 2016 4:10 PM GMT
Mind you, I was glad in a way when the price started shortening on the 3 day run up to SB, because I honestly thought that they had hit the 3 on the keyboard twice by mistake when they put up their prices and would try to pull the "palpable" error get out clause. 3/1 would have been skimpy but it was possible as I reckoned it was a genuine 5/1 shot. But no, they just made a huge blunder. Wink

Well done mighty some great picks at huge prices. Sickening that when you find a value bet you can't get a decent few quid on it.
I had Russel Wilson last year to run for over 40.5yds and after 3 carries for 39 it was looking good with 6.44 left in the 3rd!
Astonished he never ran again with the field wide open many times...

If you think the British bookies are bad, I have been checking out some in USA and came up with this unbelievable one, Spartan Sports, I quote,

"Horse Wagering Limits : Maximum Payout For $2 Win Bet Is $32 (16 to 1). For $2 Place Bet Is $14 (7 to 1) and For Show Bet Is $8 (4 to 1). Maximum Payout For A Quinella Is 50 to 1 and ALL Other Exotics Have A Maximum Payout of 100 to 1. Example, Winning Horse Pays $75 to Win, We ONLY Pay $32. Winning Horse Pays $25 To Place, We ONLY Pay $14 and Winning Horse Pays $15 To Show, We ONLY Pay $8".

Not sure how well it fits the criteria here but most bookies still include the draw at full time as an option in HT/FT bets despite a draw being impossible in a Super Bowl

Pretty sure you will find those bets do not include overtime.

2point conversion attempt at 3/1 is a great bet! It doesn't even have to be a successful one to get paid out. Panthers went for the 2point conversion when up by 25 Laugh Warming up for more of the same in the Superbowl.
Report themightymac February 5, 2016 7:01 PM GMT
Sorry guys, I`ve been through them all and can`t find any major blunder at big big price on specials.

However, I have found one bet for any casual viewer of NFL looking for an interest for the whole game at a decent price, although having bet it myself I hope it comes up in the first quarter. Crazy

The bet is, EITHER TEAM TO SCORE A SAFETY @ 12/1 WITH HULLS.

That price is wrong and should only be half that at 6/1 imo and indeed the opinion of most bookies, with most going from 5/1 to 7/1. Hulls won`t be offering that price for long and anybody wanting it should bet it now.

Peyton Manning has never been the most mobile of QB and he`s even worse now. Carolina defense is very good and will be gunning for him. If they get pinned on their goal line, we have an excellent chance of this pulling. Panthers to score a Safety is probably our best hope, but, Denver have the best defense in NFL and are very very fast, so likewise, if Carolina get pinned on their goal line, it`s not beyond the realms of possibility that the Broncos can score a Safety!

There will be opportunities for both teams during the match, of that I`m convinced, so let`s hope that the bet can prove beneficial.

If you have a small tinker, grab that 12/1 now, for it won`t last. Only other bookie going anywhere near that is 635 who go 10/1. The rest go between 5/1 and 7/1 which, as stated earlier, is more like the correct odds.

Good luck and enjoy the game.

Not a bad bet 2/1 for over 2.5 players to attempt a pass, those who think osweiler may play.
Also have the trick play option running for you or a possible fumbled snap at field goal attempt.
