Making Novelty Bets

Recommended Posts

Hi, Can anyone suggest how to go about getting odds on unusual novelty bets?

I have recently tried to get odds on a couple of novelty bets with Ladbrookes and William Hill and other major bookmakers using their custom bets requests hashtags on Twitter (for example odds that certain rugby players will start at certain positions in some games), which seem like much less whacky bets than those mentioned in the following article on unique bets (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-18769451), but they are not being priced up.

Also looking for odds on certain teams reaching the final.

I'd give you better odds on getting a response to that question if you told us the sport and, maybe even, the competition in question! ;) 

As it stands it's such a vague query that it's unlikely to elicit a response.

As to your opening post, I doubt there's much anyone else can add. If you've tried the available channels with no joy then it's unlikely you're going to get offered prices. The bookies may be concerned that you have inside info for such a "binary" bet whereas they are more comfortable pricing the weird and whacky on the assumption that no-one could have knowledge of, or influence, the outcome.
