On a serious note ...........

I've had a lay in the system of Joe £100 at 3.5 which was never taken as it was too short.  However at 8.30pm last night it was taken which I don't mind as I'd obviously pressed the 'Keep' button days ago.

My question is that the bet reference says 8.30pm but isn't the market closed once the voting starts at the end of the show which was well before 8.30pm so how can this be?

Any ideas please?

Thanks

The market is suspended when the vote closes Lou

I think last night they were a little slow in suspending it

All I know is they suspended the market at 8.47/48

Shouldn't the strictly market be suspended by now?

suspended just as I posted

The market doesn`t suspend when voting starts, only when it finishes.

Thank you so much I genuinely appreciate your help.

I wanted to lay Joe as I'm a bit top heavy on him so wanted to balance it up a bit more but I have a feeling he may be lower than 3.5 tonight so of course I'd rather lay him at the shorter odds.

I'll contact Betfair and ask.

Thanks again.

No worries Lou. Always here to help Grin

Just checked the end of the show on catch-up. The lines closed at 8.45pm. So only a minute or 2 late

That's probably it then.  Although show finished about 8.10pm I think, the lines for voting still open so betting market still open.

Oh well not to worry I wanted to lay it anyway just would have been handy if he were a bit lower to lay tonight.

Appreciate your help.

I'd be happy with 3.5, wish I'd have waited longerSad
Report LOU MACARIS TARTAN B November 18, 2018 4:59 PM GMT
Only guessing but I wonder if he may shorten to about 3.5 or lower perhaps tonight with Stacey drifting to a similar price?
Report lookingon November 18, 2018 5:02 PM GMT
I think he may shorten more Lou as he's actually leading the Strictly spoiler poll this week.
He was very good last night Happy
Report LOU MACARIS TARTAN B November 18, 2018 5:05 PM GMT
Yes I thought he was good though Stacey good too I thought though she seemed to be marked down a bit harshly IMO.

Like I've said it suits me if he wins but he's got a few against him still.  The obvious three he has to beat and even Charles was good last night in all honesty.

I really do think that IF he wins it wont be down to his dancing but his popularity.
Report LOU MACARIS TARTAN B November 18, 2018 5:10 PM GMT
Oh yes of course.  On pure dancing Ashley and Faye must beat him for starters.
Report lookingon November 18, 2018 5:17 PM GMT
If it was on pure dancing I agree that Ashley would win.
Report LOU MACARIS TARTAN B November 18, 2018 5:36 PM GMT
Yes although Faye very good too but Ashley that class above her.

Alas we all know it comes down to the public vote though so they just vote their 'Favourite' regardless of who's the best.

On that basis Joe right up there with a chance so good luck.

Good Luck to you also.

I've not really had that many bets on the Win market all free trades really.

I go in heavy every year on Strictly as don't watch any other 'Specials' at all so look forward to it.  I think it's a great programme and this year looking very good for me but still that bit worried about Lauren and Charles.
