    In the H2H league, I think.
    Exactly - head-to-head, not top South Coast Club - which is also why the odds were 70 in early April when we'd already played both of them home and away. Bet's a loser I'm afraid but you've only lost a quid.

      Can anyone give a reasonable explanation of why this has been settled as a 'losing' bet?

      Ok..unlikely to happen but, surely it should still be an in running bet? It was Brighton-Bournemouth-Southampton

      I haven't contacted Betfair yet because I'm going to see if we can pull the miracle off first!

      You placed that on the 1st April? At that time Brighton had 3 points from 4 games, Bournemouth 5 points from 3, Saints 3 points from 3 - with just Saints-Bournemouth to come - meaning it was impossible to win that bet - so why are they giving you odds?

      Is it legal to give odds on something that has a 100% chance of losing?

      I'm not really going to bother anymore unless we pull off a miracle tomorrow and Bournemouth collapse!

      Bookies take bets on daft things like the world ending on a certain date don't they ?
