Just like the World Cup we’ve got 32 participants and 8 groups. The best 2 from each group goes through to the next round. Only bets on the World Cup is allowed.

Each contestant gets picked (by random) one of the national teams competing in the World cup 2010. And then they have to do 5 bets related to there team (can bet against them and so on). Shouldn’t be a problem finding bets as there will be 50+ bets possible to do on any one game in the World cup.
After the league stage the people with most points go through (top 2). They are then up against a person from another group (following the same schedule as the real WC, A1 vs B2 and so on, in the next round).

Number of bets:
Group stages (32 participants): 11-25.June – 20 bets (15+5) – 48 games to bet on.
2. Stage (16): 26-29.June - 10 bets (8+2) – 8 games
3. Stage (8): 02-03.July – 10 bets (8+2) – 4 games
4. Stage (4): 06-07.July – 10 bets (8+2) – 2 games
5. Stage (5): 10-11.July – 10 bets (8+2) – 2 games (final and bronze final..)
(in the last couple of rounds..bets will be pm'd hidden to me (or someone else) before posted..when few matches to bet on

In addition to the regular bets, one can also do 2 “long-term” bets.
1. Who do you think will win the WC?
2. Top scorer?
Search for the best odds and put it up (name the bookie), I would recommend using www.oddschecker.com
These bets will only come into play if you are one of the 2 finalists.
Bets have to be placed before the start of the tournament.


*The regular rules..
1. Every player has 200 points to bet with in the first round.

2. Each separate bet made is 10 points meaning players have 20 bets during the first 14 days. Maximum bet on a single game is 10 points, same rule applies for identical multis.

3. After the group stage the qualifiers all start on 0 points (same for each round).

4. Scoring consists of total winnings and is inclusive of 10 point stake i.e. someone bets on a 6/4 horse and it wins their score becomes 25 (15 points profits plus the 10 pt stake) There is no score for any bets not used. Losing bets are scored as zero, not -10.
Any bet from an exchange bookie will have a 4% commission

5. Players must quote where they're getting their prices.

6. Singles and upwards accepted.

7. For boxed multis and bets such as Yankees, each separate bet within the bet counts as separate and will cost 10pts per bet. e.g. ten trebles from five selections will use up 100 points.

8. E/W bets are counted as two bets in the masters, which means 10 points x 2

9. For tracking purposes, players are requested to put the outcome of their bets on the post for all events other than European soccer/tennis.

10. Where possible players are requested to put down a running total of their bets in their posts, although I'll also try and produce rolling league tables where possible.

11. After a bet has been posted up, one is not allowed to edit it..

12. The bets must be possible to do in real life, meaning for example that if you got a multi, all the odds have to come from 1 bookmaker. You can’t shop around for the highest odds and put them together.


That was a lot of...if you got any questions (I know we’ve got a few new faces in the BM this time), then don’t hesitate to ask, either on here or via pm’s.

you said: -

Do you mean who will win the WC and Top goal scorer bets only?

Stigma
13-05-2010, 11:22 AM
Would also stress the need for fair play.
In special instances copying bets of you're opponent is not allowed. If say to just block him out. Duplicated bets (scenario: on the last day of the round, you're opponent has betted on Germany to win. And you are a few points ahead of him and you do the same bet).
I reserve the right to referee this problem...as they say in boxing, we want a clean and fair fight..

Is also why we in the last few rounds (from stage 3), will do secret betting. Meaning PM's and then all posted up when all bets are in.

Mmh, I placed a bet with bet fair on Holland to win and Van Persie to be topscorer a few weeks back. Since when the odds have tumbled on both. my thinking was to keep the Van Persie bet and lay the Holland bet

However I still go with Van perise as top scorer. Could I have an odds ruling?

Also does anyone know if there is anyone offering odds on top scorer in the group stages?

Another question - if there is a massive variation between buy and sell on betfair what odds are taken

sorry to be a pain in the arse

Finbar
14-05-2010, 11:37 AM
John, you would have to take the odds that RVP is when you post up your selection on here.

Lay bets are not allowed (a much debated ruling) and any Betfair odds you take must be available when you make your post so if there is not much liquidity in the market you might be best quoting odds from a fixed odds bookie.

Can't see any bookie offering top scorer in the group stage

Does that help?

but for the time being


I can't see past Spain winning - quoted at 9/2 at a few places
I would also back them to score the most goals but I think they will be fairly well distributed so am going for Van Persie who's best odds are 33-1 although I got 38's on betfair a few weeks back
Other bets I would like to place now and will add to later

5 on Chile
Chile's Group H to be top scoring group 5.4 on betfair
Chile to come 2nd in group 2.3 on betfair
Honduras versus Chile - Chile win 4/6 Boyle Sports
Humberto Souaro to be first player to 3 goals - odds to be announced

Other bets
Holland to win their group 1.7 on betfair 10 points
Holland v Denmark 4/5 Boyle sports 10 points

Well he won't play all the matches, you're only putting him up as you're a Liverpool fan and Villa (David not Aston) represents far better value

Stig one question if I may. We have to make at least 5 bets on our team yet have a total of 20 bets in the group stages. Will all 20 bets determine who goes through or is just the 5 bets on "our" team?

StuNick
31-05-2010, 06:18 PM
It will be the total of all 20, just adding a bit of fun to make sure you do five of your bets on your team (or against them) in some way (first goal scorer, correct score etc) :p

So you have chosen Spain and Van Persie right? And also placed 8 bets for the group stage. Only bet that might be a problem for you is the Humberto Souaro to be first player to 3 goals..because this first round only last for the 3 group matches. So unless he scores 3 goals in those then..

I still feel good about him and RVP, granted I am leaning more towards RVP in recent days - but providing one of them wins it, it is all good as I'm backing them both. The good news is that hopefully Higuain will continue to start up front.

Spikey and others, we are only up to the first round of the comp at the moment and you should only be putting bets up for the group stage.

Your third bet won't have cleared and neither will your second if, as you expect, the USA qualifies from their group.

People should only be putting bets on top scorer for their country if you are willing to gamble that they will be eliminated at the group stage.

I don't think that anyone who has put up one of these bets already should be able to change it (and should just have to accept the loss) because the rules in the opening post are clear, but I'm happy to warn others.

Bit harsh on reflection, I must have been a bit grumpy this morning.

Anyone who has made this mistake should have the bet voided. I don't want to void my South Africa top scorer bet though, because I'm expecting them to be eliminated at group stage and am happy to take the risk.

From the other thread..posted up on the 21 of May..
"
I suggest we make a deadline a day before the WC starts for these two bets.
In addition to the regular bets, one can also do 2 long-term bets.
1. Who will win the WC?
2. Top scorer?

If you haven't posted up who you think will win those two bets on the BM WC thread before the 11 of June at the latest, then one can assume that you are not interested in joining anymore and a chance will open up for anyone that want to join. Kinda like a standby..

Could this be an idea? Just worried that some of the 32 players aren't so serious about joining as first thought.

Bet 4 Denmark to come bottom of their group. 4.8 Betfair


I haven't seen much of them but the only stand out result in qualifying was a win in Portugal when they were in disarray[although they did beat Sweden home and away], or so I recall. Also they only drew in Albania and Hungary and lost at home to Hungary.

Only Japan, Honduras, New Zealand and South Africa are ranked lower in Fifa rankings - I know that Japan are in the same group but the odds[1.85] do not reflect the small difference in the rankings. Anyway I hope to lay some of the profit off if they lose their first game against the Dutch.
